The name of the blog is a line from Buffy the Vampire Slayer that made me laugh. It’s also what a lot of people say about socialism.
If you repost
The content of posts is subject to change (with corrections, additions, improvements), so I don’t recommend copying and pasting an entire article from my site onto another site. If you do that, you may be stuck with something that becomes obsolete. The safest thing to do is to quote the beginning of an article and give a link for the rest.
In any case, please credit me by name and give a link back to this site.
When I was growing up in an all-white suburb of Cleveland, the movements of the 1960s pointed me in the direction of radical social activism. It was the Black Panthers and especially Malcolm X who pointed me in the direction of revolution. I started to write and organize as a revolutionary socialist in the early 1980s, and I joined the International Socialist Organization in 1988. I remained an active, and sometimes a leading, member of the ISO until March 2019, when I voted with the majority to dissolve the organization.
I’m still a revolutionary socialist. I live in Oakland, about a mile, as it happens, from where the Panthers were founded. I now belong to the Democratic Socialists of America.
