Re: Pro-Palestine or Anti-War (SS Dec. 2023, article)
A two state solution (Western politicians’ favourite saying) wouldn’t work, because of all the Jewish towns & cities in the West Bank.
According to the Left, ‘From the river to the sea,’ implies a secular, Palestinian state. While this aim is more realistic (in the short term) than a world socialist revolution, it would only solve one of capitalism’s million problems (that of Palestinian apartheid).
Thanks for that interesting article, Robbo.
It just goes to show that we’re all humans living on planet earth. Imagine explaining the State of Israel & the Palestinian territories (or any other war) to a group of aliens visiting this world!

Trots criticise us for not having achieved socialism by now, when they haven’t, either! Can you imagine!

Re: Bad Moon Rising by CCR
The lyric: ‘There’s a bad moon on the rise,’ has been misinterpreted by some as: ‘There’s a bathroom on the right.’
Now, for a more feel-good song (about nuclear war).

“I remember tackling him ages ago at a meeting of Newport Young Socialists about whether there would be wages and money in socialism.”
You may have knocked some sense into him, ALB, if you had literally tackled him.
Thanks for that interesting link, Almamater.
This might be in bad taste, but it’s damn funny:
There is a tendency to believe famous people don’t die in accidents, and there must be some grand conspiracy behind their deaths (e.g. Princess Diana). The truth is famous people can die in tragic accidents just like the rest of us.
Jack Kennedy was purposefully shot in the neck by a Stalinist nut-case & accidentally in the back of the head by a Secret Service agent. Whereas, Bobby was shot by a Palestinian terrorist who hated the former for being pro-Israel.
Two Just Stop Oil protesters have been sentenced to 2 & 3 years in jail (respectively) for climbing a bridge. The activists have been refused permission to challenge the sentences in the Supreme Court.
The UN special rapporteur on the promotion & protection of human rights has written a letter to the British government. This letter expresses concern that they are acting increasingly authoritarian by giving two peaceful activists such harsh sentences.
The letter (sent in mid-August) requested a reply within 60 days, but the UN rapporteur has not received one.
