Ten rape prevention tips:

1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.

2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.

3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.

4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.

5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.

6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.

7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.

8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.

9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.

10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.

A Surprise Pride and Prejudice Engagement

(Note: This isn’t me)

See? This is a tailor-made proposal. Not some “big screen of basketball game nonsense. This person took into account his girlfriend’s pastimes and favourite things in the world, knew how close to the family she was and engineered the perfect engagement proposal, without a doubt managing to make sure this would please her (surely her mother and sisters would know).

This is how you do big gestures.

Essentials of Marxist Theory Reader

levantineviper:

Theory is essentially the intellectual expression of the revolutionary process itself. In it every stage of the process becomes fixed so that it may be generalised, communicated, utilised and developed. Because the theory does nothing but arrest and make conscious each necessary step, it becomes at the same time the necessary premise of the following one.

— György Lukács

I’ve put together a list of books, articles, essays, anthologies, and collected works that are essential reading for those who wish to possess a basic understanding of Marxist theory. I’ve included links (PDFs or HTML on MIA) to the full text of every single work I’ve included in this list. The list begins with Marx and ends with contemporary Marxist academics and intellectuals, while covering everything in between. The list is organized chronologically, not in order of what should be read first (although in a sense, it is almost organized in terms of who should be read first). This still is, and will always be, a work in progress.

I tried to keep this selection as pure as I possibly could (a friend of mine described this list as “Salafi Marxist”) despite the fact that I had to sacrifice some of its purity for the sake of inclusion and variety. This list does not represent me or my views in its entirety; I’ve included a few Marxist theorists whose assertions I reject and theorists whose fan clubs I despise (I’m looking at you, Trots).

Marx:

Marx and Engels:

The Marx-Engels Collected Works

The MECW consists of 32,000 pages of works written by Marx and Engels. It contains most (if not all) of what I’ve listed above (and a whole lot more) in one PDF document.

Engels:

Lenin:

Lenin’s Collected Works

45 volumes that include almost every word Lenin has ever written, with two exceptions (listed at the bottom of the page) with links. 

Rosa Luxemburg:

Trotsky:

Antonio Gramsci:

The following are all very short pieces by Gramsci:

Georg Lukács:

Mao:

The Frankfurt School:

Louis Althusser:

Other:

A lot more can be found on the Marxists Internet Archive and the E-Book Collective websites.

You know the crazy thing about these pictures coming out of Ferguson? They look EXACTLY like the pictures of the 50s-70s. Nothing at all has changed, just reasons and excuses they use to keep us down.

"'What is Christianity?' Undoubtedly half will respond, 'A relationship with Jesus.'

That is wrong. The gospel cannot be merely a private transaction. God didn’t break through history, through time and space, to come as a baby, be incarnated, and suffer on the cross just so you can come to him and say, ‘Oh, I accept Jesus and now I can live happily ever after.’ That’s not why he came…. Jesus came as a radical to turn the world upside down. When we believe it is just about Jesus and yourself, we miss the whole point."
