Thought for the week
" 'Art for art's sake' is a philosophy of the well-fed."
"The war which is coming is not the first one.
There were other wars before it.
When the last one came to an end
There were conquerors and conquered.
Among the conquered the common people starved.
Among the conquerors the common people starved too."

The Morning Star is the only daily newspaper in the UK which is fully independent, is owned by its readers, and which presents news from a progressive, working class perspective.
No celebrity gossip. No naked bodies. No hysterical anti-working class or anti-minorities rants. Just reliable reportage of news.
Woody said :
"I hate a song that makes you think you're not any good! I hate a song that makes you think that you are just born to lose. Bound to lose. No good to nobody. No good for nothing. Because you are either too old or too young or too fat or too thin or too this or too that. Songs that run you down or songs that poke fun at you on account of your bad luck or your hard travelling.
"I am out to fight those kind of songs to my very last breath of air and my last drop of blood.
"I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world, and that if it has hit you pretty hard and knocked you for a dozen loops, no matter how hard it's run you down and rolled over you, no matter what color, what size you are, how you are built, I am out to sing the songs that make you take pride in yourself and in your work. And the songs I sing are made up for the most part by all sorts of folks just about like you."
"Any damn fool can get complicated; it takes a genius to achieve simplicity."
