Teh Best Wall

Based on the level of competence we’ve witnessed so far, I fully expect the wall around New Mexico to start construction any day now.

Marxists Against Franco

Antifascist radicals are in the news a lot lately, and it’s day 8 of black history month – so why not read about both at once? Here’s a 32-page academic paper about the 90 or so African American Marxists who banded together with Italian communists and Irish anti-imperialists to fight in the International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) and try to stop the rise of Franco’s military dictatorship.

Stand

If you come back tomorrow and nothing has changed
and nothing will change

If you come back tomorrow and evil was stronger than good
and evil overwhelmed good

If you come back tomorrow with no substitute for morality
and those around you substitute God
nihilism, humor, honesty

Don't surrender.

If you come back tomorrow lighting the way
and the light only serves as a target

If you come back tomorrow and there is no reward for kindness to the least
and the least are destroyed

Keep fighting.

Make a wall of your long black shadow.
Raise your arms and watch it grow.

Stretch tall in your eclipse.
