C.L.R. James saw the future of civilizations

I started reading ‘World Revolution 1917-1936’, then came upon this meaningful paragraph – that speaks to the current global situation:

“The present crisis in world affairs, the growth of Fascism, the Spanish revolution, the inevitable revolution in France, the role of Russia yesterday, to-day, and to-morrow, the constant ebb and flow of political parties and movements all over the world, these things must be seen, can only be understood at all, as part of the international revolutionary movement against Capitalism which entered a decisive stage in 1917….”- C.L.R. James, January 17, 1937

It’s 2017 – a hundred years later – is civilization in a global movement against Capitalism?

Food Orgasm

A food orgasm rarely occurs for me; especially when seated in the passenger front seat of a moving car.   But it happened.  There I was, inhaling the fresh aroma of a Léché Desserts donut.  I opened by mouth and inserted the soft and chewy, maple glazed.   As the sweetness hit my palette, I slowly closed my eyes – chewing to taste every ounce of pure goodness; then, I swallowed.  What happened next was unscripted blissful joy – that I couldn’t hold in.  From the depths of my stomach, I moaned in extreme delight – throwing the driver off guard.  “Oh my God,” she said.  “You sound like you’re having an orgasm.”  I replied, “ohh, this is so-o good.”

Warren, Coretta Scott King, and Sessions

To better understand why the Senate silenced Senator Warren with Rule 19, you must first read this:

Coretta Scott King’s 1986 statement and testimony on Jeff Sessions 

Regardless of the rules, Warren was reminding the U.S. Senate of Session’s track record.  After-all, some people need an historical remember of the People’s struggles for liberties and freedoms.

“the elephant in the room”

Go ahead – do the recount, but don’t ignore “the elephant in the room” – 41.5% of the country’s population did not vote.

“Membering” Austin Clarke

AClarke

“You ’member?”

“I ’member.”
“I ’member, too!”
“What you ’member?”
“I ’member everything you want me to remember!”
“You really ’member everything, in-true?”
