The pigs I am referring to are the pigs of George Orwell’s Animal Farm: the Communists. The animals that think they are ‘more equal’ than others.

These guys sound a lot like us but less decriptive and more vague.  They seem not to have heard of us and think they are the first to attempt this.  That's ok.  I am going to look more into it and see if the local IOPS members want to merge with them somehow.   http://leftroots.net/towards-strategy/ http://leftroots.net/

Does the ICC exist? Well I suppose it depends on what you mean by ICC and exist. ICC member Paul Street was nice enough to inform me something along the lines of, "you know, the ICC is not real".  So I asked Noam Chomsky and he granted me.

'Some of this stuff does indeed need saying, but Russell Brand is not the man to say it.' Of course. We need the "right" people to say things.
