Lenin, in his Tomb but still not dead (insert your own bad Michael Howard comparison jokes here), has the latest Carnival of the UnCapitalists. I have not had - or am likely to have - time to read all of pieces linked to, but Lenin's own piece is good - I particularly like the lengthy quote from the Communist Manifesto, which is a wonderful example of writing if nothing else - if, well, shall we say, on the far left, which clashes somewhat with my at-best (or worst, depending on your view) fellow-traveller status.
Paid-up academic Marxists, however, seem unable to read a relatively interesting article exploring why suicide bombing is generally regarded as more terrible than other bombing as anything other than a lengthy champagne socialist-style apologia for anti-American terrorism, simply because, it would seem, they have convinced themselves that a bunch of crazy Texan oilmen have replaced the proletariat as the engine of history. Talk about ideology blinding you to the truth. John Band has a fair go at pointing this out - the stuff about it not being an apologia, not that stuff about the replacement of the proletariat with crazy Texas oilmen - or else I'd have done it myself.
Oh, and Nick Barlow thinks it's a good thing that Glen Hoddle's got a new contract at Wolves. At the risk of being smacked in the face with crazy opinions about the disabled and faith healing, I'm going to agree.
