We Have a Winner!
Having over the past two months or so carefully excluded from public view sundry offers involving penile enlargement and/or teenage Russian babes-in-thongs, this humble blog has just posted its 100th comment.
The comment-- found here -- was a suggestion by The Constructivist that my experience as theoretician, youth organizer, and sole known cadre of the Vanguard Workers Revolutionary Marxist-Leninist Labor Party USA (Bolshevik-Reconstructed) might now be put to good use as a member of the We Are All Giant Nuclear Fireball Now Party, which is, I believe, a rotten bloc of Mensheviks and liquidationists.
Normally, of course, I would scorn a rotten bloc of Mensheviks and liquidationists -- even if it does announce itself as an avatar of revolutionary disgust (the one healthy political emotion):
Disgust with the corporate triopoly of Democratic-Green- Republican politics in the United States and its craven enablers in the American mass media. Disgust at the intellectual creamed corn served up by American universities and their military-industrial masters. Disgust at the pollution of our air and groundwater, at illegal war and corporate pillage, at the immiseration of the vast majority of the planet's sentient life, at the evisceration of international law, and, most of all, at the insufficient disgust of people who condemn these things somewhat less vehemently than we do. For those people are all that stand between us and a truly radical transformation of something or other.
One can't help wondering if WAAGNFNP is not, for all its seeming opposition, actually part of the problem.
Be that as it may, no hardened Bolshevik will fail to do entry work in a centrist organization when the oppotunity presents itself.
Provided I am allowed to sell old copies of Projectile (the quarterly "theoretical supplement" of Proletarian Hammer newspaper) at public meetings of WAAGNFNP, then we may begin to engage in talks leading to fusion. As it were.
