how should i begin my essay regarding class struggle? i have many ideas that i can integrate into my writing, however, starting it off seems to be rather difficult. thank you

Historian 13/10/07(Mon)07:05 No. 13954

begin by stating that class-struggle was invented by the jews to divide and conquer the aryan folk. i'd start there.

You should start with an introduction of course. Tell the reader why you're doing this, what the purpose of the text is and what it is that you want to convey.

Shit is hitting the fan. Example. Example 2. Therefore it is prudent for me to speak about this right now. The purpose of my book is to analyze gaping anuses, while disputing the fact that OP is a fag. Hopefully you will understand more about how OP is definitely not a fag after reading this willy dribble

>Well, no surprise I suppose, seeing how they teach Marx in Literature courses.


Historian 14/09/10(Wed)05:12 No. 14394

Part of a single lecture that covers Marx's writing in the context of Russian literature, out of a total of 26 lectures (the rest of which don't cover Marx's writing), constitutes "teaching Marx?"

Normally when you say "teaching X" that means X is the focus, not some ancillary topic that's covered as part of a ranging discourse on a wide variety of topics.

That's quite the corner you've backed yourself into there.

check out wildcat, it's a set of anarchist comics and marvel ones, so you might have to differentiate through search terms


so I found out that thomas paine had a sister that died as a child, is consistently shown with scissors, and seems to be a tailor

"At the age of 13, he was apprenticed to his stay-maker father. Paine researchers contend his father's occupation has been widely misinterpreted to mean that he made the stays in ladies' corsets, which likely was an insult later invented by his political foes."

here's the reds (socialists, who don't belong in the yellow area - yellow meaning liberalism), america, and fascism (the grey guy who was wearing a brown cloak and hiding like he was an afrikaaner), I don't particularly agree with this propaganda but I found it insightful into the phenomenon of colours as references

the third one shits class war, see political colours and note references and viewpoints, for instance the courtroom in the dark knight rises has a certain french revolution feel to it

somewhat relevant
for these two, a spiral is technically a revolution, so an incomplete one would be an incomplete revolution, one kind of gets the impression it's a reference to bearded marxists or something (the old communists)

Black is primarily associated with anarchism (see anarchist symbolism) and fascism (see blackshirts).

Red is traditionally associated with socialism and communism. The oldest symbol of socialism (and, by extension, communism) is the Red Flag, which dates back to the French Revolution in the 18th century and the revolutions of 1848. The colour red was chosen to represent the blood of the workers who died in the struggle against capitalism.

Blue, particularly dark blue, is usually associated with conservative parties, originating from its use by the Conservative Party in the United Kingdom.


White is today mainly linked to pacifism (as in the surrender flag) and in politics of the United Kingdom to independent politicians such as Martin Bell.

* Historically, it was associated with support for absolute monarchy, starting with the supporters of the Bourbon dynasty of France, because it was the dynasty's colour. Later it was used by the Czarist Whites who fought against the communist "Reds" in the Russian Civil War, because the Russian "Whites" had similar goals to the French "Whites" of a century earlier.


Yellow is the colour most commonly associated with liberalism. It is the official colour of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, as well as being the colour of liberal parties in Germany, Romania, Estonia and the United Kingdom (the Liberal Democrats). Yellow is also often used to represent libertarianism.

Purple is the most prominent colour that is not traditionally connected to any major ideology. As such, it is sometimes used to represent a mix of different ideologies, or new protest movements that are critical of all previously-existing parties.
In the United Kingdom purple is associated with Euroscepticism, being the official colours of the UK Independence Party (along with yellow) and Veritas.


for a long time I had no idea that the scissors were a reference to thomas paine, I kept looking for class war beside it, but one good thing to know and recognize is that socialism is a complimentary continuation of adam smith's capitalism ideas, while thomas paine existed before the idea of class war existed he certainly wrote about things pretty damn similar to it

attack on titan's a great example of the concept with giant people eating others, and if you feel like it, there's a great intro at least to tower of god on the matter, since class war is about dealing with those who rule above you and in essence climbing the tower is in the comic, and the first bit is similar to gurren lagann in a sense too although they have differences, the first thing about class war you have to understand is that for the people who rise up, they start fighting because they feel suffocated by the impositions of their masters


ah, I found a few wildcat cartoons, simple is good for an opening on a complex subject, I'm not talking about simplifying the concept entirely, but rather begin with a general premise
this is a *particularly* good one since phrases like "no war but class war" find themselves mostly supported by the anarchists, and politics, personal matters and philosophical matters all are important under a mature understanding of society in their view from what I've seen

now, I watched kill la kill after I noticed the transformers thing, and I knew someone who was as shallow and chipper as the yellow character, and they classified themselves as liberal basically, so that's how I kind of flipped out and started really associating kill la kill with class struggle once I saw this freeze frame

oh and I think I see calvin from calvin and hobbes in the picture, calvin, and hobbes the actual people might be a good reference point too, it might be good to reference a game on the matter, mass effect 3 certainly has aspect but it's a bit pre-blowup as a cultural addition, fight club's a pseudo example if you talk about the movie, but you could bring it up, and reference the beginning part about the boring job, consumerism etc etc etc, or the matrix with the leech machines, the animatrix had a good one about class war through that one short about blowing up the UN or something with an apple

bioshock infinite has an awesome reference too about choices in revolutionary times, with a bit of a similar in some respects, ending to mass effect 3's secret/4th/alternate ending more or less
