Good and Bad Genocide: Suharto and Pol Pot

Good and Bad Genocide Double standards in coverage of Suharto and Pol Pot By Edward S. Herman Coverage of the fall of Suharto reveals with startling clarity the ideological biases and propaganda role of the mainstream media.

Slice-of-Life, “Self-Indulgence” & Reaction

Amateur chauvinist critics nowadays label entertainment without plot to be “self-indulgent.” What they are referring to here is the “slice of life” story, universally met with knee-jerk attacks from our young, impatient reviewers. It is hardly ever analyzed by these people whether or not the lack of plot is due to a lack of talentContinue reading “Slice-of-Life, “Self-Indulgence” & Reaction”

Why is Revisionism the Enemy?

Recently a group of revisionists tried to liquidate your author’s arguments and activism by bringing up his past history of being in a variety of revisionist parties and over time changing his ideology. It is precisely because I was a member of these revisionist groups that I see revisionism for what it is. I wasContinue reading “Why is Revisionism the Enemy?”

Communism & Fascism: Same Thing?

I am sick to death of all these idiots comparing Stalin to Hitler and Nazis to Marxist-Leninists. It is time to face facts: comparing Communists with Nazis is objectively pro-fascist. It is completely unrealistic and only helps out the other side, including the fascists, Nazis, reactionaries and monarchs. It only assists them in whitewashing andContinue reading “Communism & Fascism: Same Thing?”
