Introduction presentation of the project:  Before starting to tell about the project, I am going to explain how I ended up doing this. At first my work should have been on the corporation Greyhound. I was supposed to organize a trip throughout the United States with that bus company but only for a single person. Nevertheless I thought that it would be more interesting to try to organize a package tour through a part of the country, if not all of the country, for the class of L3 LLCER English.…

  [One for the five readers in the IOPS necropolis. Salud. Peter] THE UnFUTURIST MANIFESTO With face smeared in toxic gunk from the cars and factories, bruised, souls wrecked and decimated by wage labour, powerlessness and the total commodification of life, but undaunted, we declare our intentions to all living beings on Earth: 1.      We intend to celebrate the love of relationship, the custom of interdependence, solidarity and mutual aid that still, despite capitalism,…

It's the little things really. The way you do your hair or  even breathe. The way you dress, tuck your pants into your socks. The fact that you smoke or don't. Perhaps it's just your tone or maybe it's your breath that pisses them off. Who the fuck knows, but they are there. Those little things that destroy relationships, groups, friendships, revolutionary chapters, fucking organisations. The way you go on about theory or not. The way you go on about single issues or not. The way you go on. The…

WELL WORTH A READ

I reckon it's well worth a read. Only nine years old which is now probably less time than we have to put this world right according to Naomi Klein and Paul Street, so probably no point really. Is Parecon syndicalist in nature or more? Is it really just economistic or more? What does it bring to the table that other visions don't? Do other visions skirt around issues that Parecon doesn't? Is it more or less detailed than other visions in its institutional structure? Does it fill in what other visions…

Post written as a tribute to Late Abhijit Roy and Late Washiqur Rahman,both of whom where atheist bloggers. And the list continues! If fundamentalists are to be blamed,even more intensely should they be blamed who supply them with ammunition.So,if ISIS/ISIL is to be blamed,none the less will the state authority of USA have to accept the blame because they supply these groups of psychopathic haters with enough ammunition to retain their hellish activities,everyday. There is a lot more to this world…

Im Zuge der allgemeinen Krisenstimmung scheint der Enthusiasmus der IOPS-Community auch vom verbreiteten Katzenjammer erfasst zu sein. Alles ist Mist. Keiner macht was. Ich verstehe das nicht. Hier scheint es eine "Organisation" jenseits von Kaderparteien und lokalen Nachbarschaftsinitiativen zu geben, die Wert auf Klarheit und Aufrichtigkeit legt und sich dennoch nicht scheut, die dicken Bretter anzubohren. Und was passiert? Man murrt über mangelnde Beteiligung und über technische Missstände.…

    Free improvisation and Chadbourne are most definitely a manifestation of Holloway's other-doing. A crack in the fabric of market capitalism. Outside of the spectacle and beyond its tentacles. No commodities or profundity chasing here. This is primal use value all  up in ya face. And he's an old fart as well, who's  been doing it for years. Eyebrows and recalcitrant stiff middle fingers all over the place. A fuck you to the man. Who says you have to grow up! Revolutionary…
