An actual voice from the Ukraine

Among the many myths with which the ruling classes brainwash the dominated, there is one that won’t die, that of the wars of liberation. There are no liberation wars, all wars are made to hoard wealth and expand hegemony in order to control resources, territories, and people, and thus ensure profits for business. All of our societies are built upon the legal robbery of social wealth produced by the workers, as a consequence, the only liberation I see is the emancipation of all Mankind by means of the world proletarian revolution. All the other bourgeois wars, although embellished with long words and high principles, are not my fights. I don’t take part in the settling of scores between brigands, even when those wars are called peace keeping operations, whether with or without the blessing by the United Nations, whose intentions are different from a bunch of criminals only because they are legally ratified. And what the bourgeois law is if not legalization of piracy? Continue reading

The Flyer

I am sitting in my armchair, sipping a frappe I made myself through a yellow straw. Meantime, I am cruising through the world wide web with my tablet, and boy, I feel like a tycoon, except for having worked 10 hours at the factory, living in a 430 square foot hovel with rickety furniture, my fridge almost empty, two cigarettes left, a heap of bills to pay, suffering from cold in the winter and gasping for air in the summer, and, no need to say, not enough money for going on vacation. Yet, all in all, how could I afford to spend some time on vacations, those taskmasters are always there to remind one that business and the lives of the laborers run over parallel lines, odds are they will never meet. You can hear them say, «Come, on, come on, output at the factory is increasing! Thanks to y’all!! We have always said that you the workers are our most precious capital» Continue reading

What I think has to be done to get out of this ongoing crisis.

Saturday morning I was invited by some friends to breakfast, they just wanted to discuss some points from Ziggurat, when, in the middle of our talk, the fatal question popped up, «Hey Bob, what do you think has to be done to solve this crisis?»
And really, my hand rushed to my belly, so why? Because I wanted to take a bow and split my sides laughing, or because I got a stabbing pain in the stomach? It’s up to you, either one is right. Continue reading

Russia and China on a shopping spree.

Almost ten days ago or so, I was discussing with my close friend Bubs, who live in Fortaleza (Brazil) about a new bank, called the New Development Bank, that the BRICS, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa inaugurated in Fortaleza on July 15th 2014, a financial giant of 100 billion dollars, which they previously agreed during their fifth meeting held in Durban on March 27th 2013.

Ziggurat, excerpt from chapter 3

I am sitting on a rock before a splendid sea, it is early in the morning and I can still see the pale figure of the moon, it looks as if painted by a child, a flat disk stuck over the sky. I have a strange thought, «I wonder what the sea feels like when the moon swells the tide, it pulls its skin and then releases it, making it breathe so that it may blow life all around» Continue reading

Open letter to Pope Francis

Dear Mr. Bergoglio, Pope of the Catholic Church, I read in the news that you complained about the communists (??)—Those meddlesome, very bad guys with the vice of eating kids and priests—would be guilty of stealing the flag of poverty from the hands of Christianity. Besides some media sources—but I don’t know if this is true, and I don’t easily believe journalists and commentators, nor do I really listen to your sermons, wherever your use to holding them—you always stated that Jesus long before Marx had the poor at heart, thus, all the starving people in this world must identify Jesus as their supporter and not Marx. I absolutely agree! Marx would never say he had the poor at heart, as he would never think to console the underprivileged with beatitudes that would defer the end of their pains in the afterlife.

And no religion too…

The kingdom of Man and not the Kingdom of God is the landing-place of the Free Human Community. We do not want to reform society, we want to revolutionize the entire world.
Class-consciousness will make the proletariat and the underclass become aware of their condition, and no other Messiah but the working class will emancipate all of Mankind by emancipating itself from the dominion of the Capital. Continue reading

Ziggurat, The Age of Total Dominion

0000003751-cover

Description: Individuals are tools of production and consumption, relentlessly looking for pleasure that never comes. Their same “self” vanishes while attempting to fill up the emptiness of their existences completely dehumanized and possessed by the totalitarian law of profit. Neither old nor new values will never appease their plight while the social regime remains unaltered. Until the social room we all occupy is humanized, there is no chance for Man to finally be born, we’ll keep being oppressed by the ruthless Leviathan, no matter if it disguises itself with the reassuring forms of civil rights and democracy. Continue reading

Meritocracy. Oh, what a Bourgeois Chimera!

Some may say I am a dreamer, but I’m not the only one… ah, sorry, that was Imagine by John Lennon.
Well, some say I am an idealist, but I am not, as I have nothing to do with idealism, I don’t think I have to bring the world back to its original ideal principle. Nor do I think that the true character of reality is only spiritual. Continue reading
