    Pretty Boy Floyd

    If you’ll gather ’round me, children,
    A story I will tell
    ‘Bout Pretty Boy Floyd, an outlaw,
    Oklahoma knew him well.


    And as through your life you travel,
    Yes, as through your life you roam,
    You won’t never see an outlaw
    Drive a family from their home.

    Maybe this was discussed at the meeting – which I had to leave prematurely – but is there a dissonance in the party position? It’s inspiring to see footage of the working class marching in their thousands and hopefully millions, but our position is that it’s a waste of time. What would the party’s reaction be if, say a million people joined a protest in London tomorrow against the genocide in Gaza? I suspect the party position would be ‘well that was pointless because socialism is the solution’. Fair enough but the dissonance creeps in when we’re (or is it just me) secretly thinking “wow that’s amazing to see so many people publicly protesting”.

    I think this guy is a generational talent. I’m a bit late to discovering him but he’s going to be around for a very long time:

    This song is currently going viral on social media. (I looked for a political songs thread but I couldn’t see it.)
