Nationalism: The Divide-And-Conquer Strategy Of The Bourgeoisie

Posted 24th January 2010 at 06:16 by AK
Updated 8th March 2010 at 07:50 by AK (fixed some minor spelling mistakes)

Nationalism is the patriotic support and pride of a certain nation by individuals or the state as an ideology. Nationalists think that their nation is superior to others, this is closely linked to racism. In it's extreme forms - such as Nazism and fascism (which both think that the nation must use force to assert control over other nations) - it is coupled with the idea that the territory of the nation-state must be expanded to suit the nation's interests. It is stupid and foolish to be proud of...

So I become a mod. Happy happy joy joy!!

Then yesterday I see some people question why I was voted in. What was the process? Why me in this forum and why another new mod in some other one? Charges of cronyism and sycophantic drooling abound, and blah blah fucking blah. What is this, I rightfully wonder. I was expecting recognition from my peers, but instead I and everyone else involved in this seeming moderator megablunder received nothing but scorn.

So I'm looking around,...

Ben will return to RevLeft in February (and brief progress report)

Posted 19th January 2010 at 08:40 by Ben Seattle (I'm here to fight)

Hi everyone,

It is time for me to take another break--so that I can give necessary focus to my life. I will be back in February.

My main activity in the recent period was to work on the thread about the need for a Revolutionary News Service. I also wrote a blog post (ie: Less is More) explaining my tactic of ignoring the aggressively clueless.

And (in the News Service thread and the Less is More blog post) I outlined a number of software improvements that...

Senate Health Bill: Early Gift or Lump of Coal

Posted 13th January 2010 at 11:53 by pauljpoposky

By Paul Joseph Poposky
originally published at SocialistAppeal.org

On Christmas Eve morning, Senate Democrats followed through on their promise to pass their version of a health insurance reform bill before the Christmas Holiday, delivering what has been hailed by many liberal commentators in major media outlets as an “early Christmas gift.” However, American workers concerned about the rising costs of health care, the poor quality of service provided by private insurance...

Less is More (Why it is not a good idea to waste time arguing with idiots)

Posted 13th January 2010 at 05:43 by Ben Seattle (I'm here to fight)
Updated 16th January 2010 at 21:25 by Ben Seattle

Hi everyone,

I promised myself, when I considered becoming active on RevLeft, that I would not waste precious time arguing with idiots. I believe many readers here will understand what I am talking about. In nearly all leftist forums which are open in character--there is a phenomenon of certain people who are, essentially, aggressively clueless, hot-headed, word-twisting time-wasters.

The problem with engaging in serious work on any open forum--is that these people will...
