  1. And what about their conspiracies like the occult cabals that the Rothschilds and global elite apparently propagate? Personally, I'd argue that the global elite need no secret luciferian society to control society, their obscene wealth, their media, their socio-political system (class division) and their capitalism is more than enough! Jones and Icke might be guilty of a bit of overkill in that regard no?
  2. What do you think of Jones comrade? Do you not think he's not a bit nuts and obnoxious? And what about Icke?
  3. Is this group new, a new communist party? I'd be interested in hearing more.
  4. Would love to see Cuba cut the cable when it goes in! Unlikely though! This upgrade is probably in preparation for the "terrorists" in Iran when they invade and level the country!

    Favourite Rebel Songs

    Maybe not my favourite but purely for the lyrics it has to be 18 Brits and Mountbatten 14 Gone but not forgotten we got 18 and mountbatten!
  6. Sick!! Especially given what happened to the descendants of a lot of the people who were "protesting"; when they were living in Europe. Fascist victims of fascism, wow, now there's a sick paradox! Does anyone know what level of support the far-right above have in "Israel".
  7. Fair enough he is better than the western NATO rats but what is admirable about Assad? He is not Socialist in the slightest, he was highly privileged as a child and a hereditary leader? I'd support him over the "rebels" unquestionably but come on? He is no Gadaffi, Gadaffi was a socialist, implemented socialist policies and organised a directly democratic people run state
  8. Let's assume that we have achieved our goals and are living in a socialist 32 county republic, we are structuring and building the worldwide revolution getting ready for revolution. But what happens to people's homes? What happens to all the big houses and older houses and what happens with the small council homes/flats what decides who gets what home? Even as collectivised properrties, what gives some people the right to big homes whil others live in ex-corpo houses and flats? Should we demolish them all?
  9. I wasn't talking purely about it either, I was just giving the example for comparison's sake. Take any social housing and contrast that with private housing in the likes of Castleknock, what should be done to decide who gets what? I can't conceive any possible reason for anyone needing a big 3 or four bed house in castleknock when they could have a 3 or 4 bed house in an area like Coultry that would meet their needs just as much?

    Rugby-Playgrounds for the Bourgeois?

    Do they know that though? I can't imagine O'Driscoll and his "Lonsterr" team mates being too happy about a radical socialist community empowerment group raising funds by raffling their signed ball lol
  11. Tragic but I'm not surprised, its only getting worse! The poor family will get less if we pass the fiscal treaty and can't afford to support them because we'll need a near balanced budget!
  12. What about the social housing around Coultry in Ballymun, they're tiny boxes basicly, not houses. If we took control of oil and gas from companies at the same time as we took the country then we could use the proceeds to start from scratch, build new houses down the line that would replace the old ones. All houses should meet aesthetic, ecologic and building standards imo, there should be minimum and maximum values so it stays equal.
  13. Fucking cunt! Who are these property people crowd? Are they shinner linked? Not trying to troll but I know they have links to some landlord and property agency.

    Panther (1995)

    Watched it the other day, great film!
  15. That's cleraly not fair though, I live in a modern enough estate of 3 bed semi detatched houses, they're nice houses but small enough, next door to me, there's a family with 7 kids in three bedrooms. In Killiney, there was an elderly couple living in a house with 8 to 9 bedrooms (the couple that were evicted and swooned over by the moderate leftists and populists). How is that fair or marxist? Also, why does a family of four in an ex -council house with 3 bedrooms not deserve the 3 bedroom home in a wealthy suburb that's owned by a family of four too? There are thousands of people that will have equal need for quality housing but some will be housed better than others? Why?

    Drugs: A Communist Response to the Problem?

    Personally I think we need to push aside zero tolerance groups like RAAD that only hurt communities and build a support network of independent addiction centres that offer advice, methadone, classes, counselling and clean needles for those hopelessly addicted. We need to engage working class children in the revolutionary programme from a young age, so they do not turn their focus to crime. We need to march on dealers houses but also try to uncover garda involvement, armed groups undoubtadely help this process, as they can threaten and punsih senior figures that hold the drugs trade together, if they could be knocked out, then the rest would fall from either fear or disorganisation. Legalisation is also something to be looked at , canabis for example, is far less dangerous than most other drugs even less dangerous than alcohol and tobacco, legalising that means that people dont go to dealers to buy it, they grow themselves. It would also take away the gateway effect that having dealers pushing other drugs on weed/hash users has.
  17. I'm happy to hear this, he has good anti-imperialist credentials and good views, he could be more left but I wouldn't complain about him. On a side note, did any of you hear about him getting the name of the constituency wrong when he was thanking people on twitter?
  18. Sick! Here's Mumia, describing the same racist prison industrial complex:

    Political Reading Section.

    Let us know if its good, I want to have a look at his diaries myself but I want to read a bit of theory first. A bit of Anarchist, bit of ML, bit of trot stuff and some mao, just to get a better idea of each so I can speak about theory more. I'm planning on tackling Capital and some Kropotkin first.

    Political Reading Section.

    I actually haven't read many political books at all. I read the manifesto and a fair few essays but that's it. Most of what I know has come fro mthe internet or videos. Has anybody got any that they'd reccomend?

    Free State Army to be Increased

    This can only be interpreted as a pre-emptitive move of some sort. The free state "needs" to cut back the number of workers in the public sector, 550 retire voluntarily between january and now, yet they find it necessary to replace the soldiers, even though front line services like welfare will see workers lose wages and possibly jobs. The state obviously detects some sort of future threat if it needs a bigger armed forces.

    Any ideas for the forum?

    How about an IRC chat box for instant messaging like the one on Rev Left. A lot of forums have them and they work well, even the Irish Fash have it on their forum.
  23. I see the red flag there too? Bit strange for Ba'athists to be flying the red flag? Good to see though, Assad, like Gadafi will not back down!
