May 9th Our Victory and our DutyToday marks 70 years of Victory in Europe.Party9999999
70 years since the last life was cut cruelly short in the ruins of Europe by the most widespread and destructive conflict the world has ever seen.
From the green fields of Europe to the Deserts of North Africa. From the vast steppes of Russia, the Jungles of Asia to the Islands of the Pacific, the armies of the Allies and Axis battled for the future of humanity, for a time it seemed we would be snuffed out, The Nazis over ran much of Europe in a few weeks and had London under aerial bombardment and it’s Afrika Korps had come within a few miles of Cairo. later in the Soviet Union they pushed all the way to the gates of Moscow, surrounded Leningrad and smashed the city of Stalingrad into a heap of rubble. Meanwhile in the Far East the Japanese swept across Asia and the Pacific driving back all who stood against them.
But we stood firm, The Luftwaffe was dashed from the skies over Britain, and the Afrika Krops pushed back in North Afr
The Eternal MuslimYeah you guys knew this had to happen sooner or later, my impassioned defence of Muslims.Party9999999
“So” I hear you ask “Why are you the godless commie defending the Muslamic infidels?” So before I go any further I’ll start with clearing up my opinion this subject. I view Islam no differently than any other faith. It has the capacity to be Progressive or Reactionary and can be used for good or ill.
Now back on track. In the years since the September 11th attacks prejudge against Muslims has increased dramatically. Workplace and public discrimination, street abuse, marginalization and media vilification and even occasional hate-killings (easily perpetuated as isolated incidents) against Muslims have become all too common.
Along with this, arson attacks, desecration, and vandalism of mosques, religious centers, schools, and Muslim homes have grown to thousands of reported incidents in any given year.
Along with this a number of politicians and political organiza
Surely Something has Gone Awry?There was a time not long ago, when we marched in lineSkargill
To usher in the glorious new time,
When we strived to free every slave and serf
In every corner of this rotten earth,
It mattered not who called the shot
So long as they weren’t a dirty Trot.
But things are no longer sweet
We’ve drunk deep from the well of defeat,
Now there’s an awful rattle
And the redrawing of the lines of battle,
Once there was the workers and the Bourgeoisie
Now its Nationalists and Conspiracists and the damn Nazi.
Not everything’s changed though
Thousands worship Mao, Hoxha and even Uncle Joe,
Though I wonder how they can sleep
With the company they keep,
It seems that now that the Comrades are few
Some have started to blame the Jew.
It seems acquainting the Fascist with the pavement
Is a forgotten statement,
Others still hate the modern Boxwallah
They’ll gladly line up behind the Ayatollah,
Others yet so blinded in their hatred of the Yank
Will champion the Russian tank.
I'm a young male mexican who enjoys history, philosophy and taking photographs every now and then.
I'm a certain kind of harnizo mexican, grandson of peasants from the states of Hidalgo and Oaxaca from the side of the mother, and of Spanish and French immigrants from the side of the father. Once my family was quite wealthy, my great-grandfather was an ambitious entrepreneur who used a government loan to establish a great sugarmill, thus creating a patrimony; some people still remember "Ingenio Rosales", the good payments and how it transformed a forgotten town into an important city. The sons of my great-grandfather inherited his wealth and his businessman abilities but everything ended during the 90s; mismanagement of money and economic crisis provoked by neoliberal governments exhausted the heritage and now I live in middle class conditions. Though I'm happy with the things I own, I've seen the poverty of others and how the big capitalist companies swallow everything while this crappy neoliberal government turns a blind eye. By seeing the shortages and lack of justice in my country I became a Socialist willing to do what I can to save this land from the capitalist aggressors.
I like my homeland but it's beauty is being destroyed by the corrupt capitalist politicians and laissez-faire policies. Destroying this rotten system and establishing a new one may be difficult, perhaps impossible, but there's nothing worse than not trying, we can try and fail but never fail to try.
