Updated 18th June 2010 at 09:38 by AK

The [B]smear campaign[/B] of the Bourgeoisie against Communists today comes in many forms. The most common of these being the propaganda sent out to the working class (through the propaganda arm of the Bourgeoisie - the corporate-owned media - as well as by representatives of the Bourgeoisie itself; coming in the form of politicians, the establishment, the current educational system and certain successful individuals) that:

The Music Industry

Posted 17th February 2010 at 11:27 by La Comédie Noire

People seem to lament the fact a centralized music industry with 6 big "super bands" that we worship and buy the merchandise and pack giant arenas 20,000 just to see is dead. Why? To be honest, I'm glad. The corporate trough has been broken into a thousand pieces and scattered to the four winds.

Apology

Posted 8th February 2010 at 03:43 by dar8888

In a few recent posts, I made some rather disparaging remarks about Kim Jong-il. I do want to retract those statements.

I was born in 1972. Communism was still a [B]serious[/B] threat to the capitalists at that time, and, until Gorbachev, it only got worse.
