“Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally the common people don’t want war, neither in Russia, nor in England, nor, for that matter, in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is always the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Hermann Goering, Hitler’s No. 2 and Head of the Nazi Luftwaffe, 1946.

Food Will Win The War, A World War II Disney Propaganda Film (1942)

Imagine a griddle five hundred square miles in area

the panzer forces of food battle lines

a snug fit of pasta for planet earth

this little girl would outweigh one hundred super dreadnaughts

and here come the pigs, 100 millions strong

[VIDEO]

Aaah, Pogumjari…

they look pretty thin

"He was covered in so much of what used to be called ‘bling’ in the 90s and swathed in so many designer schmattes, it was like if Marie Antoinette attended a bake sale in support of the Revolutionary Tribunal."
Nice…


By Bruce LaBruce
Last week I was talking about how stylistically-challenged the Occupy Wall Street movement is, and how important style is to any radical manifestation. Well, I was so busy fretting about the style deficit of these disheveled, bedraggled, drum-beating revolutionary dilettantes that I didn’t even get a chance to address the real 800-pound gorilla in the room: advanced capitalism. That’s right, unregulated, unrestrained, evangelical, fundamentalist free market capitalism, the kind that is about to plunge the world into a tailspin of economic hardship, austerity, and widespread poverty. When soviet communism failed and the Iron Curtain fell, everyone was eager to bury communism forever. Now that capitalism is threatening to destabilize the world order, why isn’t it also being recognized as a failed political system? Just asking.
