A BLOG OUT OF STEP, OUT OF TIME AND OUT OF BREATH.
Via Ragged Trousered Philanthropist blog:
As someone once said, "A picture is worth a thousand words", but here's a few thousand words anyway:
The case for and against reformismDo Anything Now?Is protest really enough?What about the meantime?
It is a brilliant image that does indeed sum up the argument better than many thousands of words. As a proud member of the SPGB, I used to love it. I still love it as an argument against the SPGB! The picture reveals a view of the real world as a sad and pointless roundabout; the real way forward as a bus with a few sad old men on it. Not a view I share!
" . . . with a few sad old men on it."*cough" the bus driver is a woman, and the person on the back seat is also a female.And with the price of fuel at the moment, do you really think they could afford for the reformist roundabout to be traveling at that fast a speed?*Sigh* It's like being back at the Oxford Union wiping the floor with the likes of Cameron, Miliband and Clegg. ;-)PS - yeah it is a great cartoon but, yes, life is more complex than that. ;-)
PSNow that I think about it again. That's a very small roundabout and an even smaller bus.Where is everyone else?
Mr Dustdevil,you are a gentleman and a (musical) scholar.
Funny cartoon.But where is the guy on the bicycle saying: "You'd think there was only two kinds of transport invented."
Sorry, been away from computers for a while. "Where is everyone else?" is perfect!
