A BLOG OUT OF STEP, OUT OF TIME AND OUT OF BREATH.
What's going on with H over at the mighty fine Cactus Mouth Informer blog?
If I didn't know any better, I'd hazard a guess that he's been battered senseless with a rolled up copy of the November 2003 Socialist Standard. He keeps coming out with SPGB soundbites over at CMI.
It'll be that one about the hottenhots next . . . mixed in with a Membranes cassingle.
Well, the article he links to explaining why nationalisation isn't socialism suggests it'll be a while before he takes the entrance exam...:http://www.communist-party.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=378:why-nationalisation-isnt-socialism&catid=48:generally-speaking&Itemid=51
Fair's fair, I did say it was the soundbites I got a kick from. Granted, it would have been sweeter if he linked to this lost classic but I guess it wasn't on CMI's radar.I just get a(nother) kick from clicking on one of my favourite music blogs and finding the thoughts of Chairman Jack Fitzgerald staring back at me . . . and from an anarchist communist blogger, too.That 'entrance exam'? Christ, I took that years ago. Not sure I could it pass it if I took it today.
I think someone must've spiked my drinks.Fair cop for the CP article, I was trying to find something relatively short which encapsulated a fairly weighty subject - as your lost classic testifies - into something readable in a short period. The soundbites were a hook.I don't think I'll be sitting the entrance exam shortly either. I mean, if I can't even link to the right article ;). Nor joining the Communist Party for that matter.
