    Quote for the week;

    "For nearly 40 years we have raised to prominence the idea of the class struggle as the immediate driving force of history, and particularly the class struggle between bourgeois and the proletariat as the great lever of the modern social revolution; ... At the founding of the International, we expressly formulated the battle cry: The emancipation of the working class must be the work of the working class itself." Marx and Engels, Strategy and Tactics of the Class Struggle (1879).

    I thought it was a Bell cartoon when I first saw it but it turns out that it's Brookes of the Times.

    PS - Can you tell me how come so many people spell fascism as facism? Is Nick Griffin really that ugly (on the outside)?

    My mistake!

    p.s. they rpobably aren't aware of the root of the word, i.e. from fasces. I'm surprised more people don't spell it faecism.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
