The Red Plebeian

I am a snarky Socialist, environmentalist, feminist, anti-racist, anti-war and general bad-ass activist, residing in the belly of the beast of world capitalism and imperialism. I blog about stuff along those lines and sometimes some randomness. My main blog is: http://theredplebeian.wordpress.com/

Happy birthday C.L.R. James


Politics, if it is fuelled by a great will to change the world, rather than by personal ambition, offers a chance to know the world, and to be more self-conscious of the actual life you are living, rather than being taken over by what you are told you should feel, about yourself and others: a chance, in other words, to live an authentic life. Such politics are a unique enrichment, not a sacrifice.
