The weekly musings of the SWEET scholars
I keep reading this thing wondering where this guy got his data. It seems like he's just making stuff up. It's anecdotes and hyperbole. You get stuff like: In a bourgeois society, the past dominates the present, in Communist society, the present dominates the past.It's like that scene in Mystery Men where Ben Stiller's character is receiving advice from the Indian guy. The Indian guy says, "You had better master your anger."Stiller interrupts him by saying, "Or what? My anger will be my master? Talking to this guy is like talking to a fortune cookie!"Solid meh...
I love his definition of minimum wage: that quantum of the means of subsistence, which is absolutely requisite in bare existence...He should have been a rapper. Does that sound any better in the original Swahili?

Nice, nice. I like the rhymes....dawg. Represent.
If The Communist Manifesto was a movie it would star Sean Penn and Tim Robbins as a buddy cop duo in a frantic race to prevent Robot-Hayek from going back in time and changing every instance of the word "exploitation" in the original manuscript of TCM into "PENIS" before it went to the presses.James Cameron would direct and it would make $800 million opening weekend.
