"Look for your own. Do not do what someone else could do as well as you. Do not say, do not write what someone else could say, could write as well as you. Care for nothing in yourself but what you feel exists nowhere else. And, out of yourself create, impatiently or patiently, the most irreplaceable of beings."

Programmatic Dead End

Joseph Stalin - inspiration behind the CPB's latest national socialist programme
EXTRACT: Hence, what to make of the Communist Party of Britain’s ‘updated’ British road to socialism? Well, in some senses it is to be welcomed - at least the CPB has a programme, no matter how awful. An open public statement or declaration of strategic intent. Unlike the Socialist Workers Party, of course, which as a point of perverse principle boasts about how it is not ‘weighed down’ by a programme. However, the latest BRS, whether adopted or not by the October congress, represents an object lesson in how not to write a programme. Instead of presenting us with a strategic road map to working class power, a compass with which to get from where we are now to where we want to be (socialism/communism) we are presented with extraneous and transient detail - in other words, the usual ‘official communist’ approach to programme writing. This has often resulted in the need for a speedy rewrite, perhaps almost immediately. Come October the new version of the BRS might be out of date already, even if we are optimistically told that it is “intended to be a guide to action” and “not a speculative prediction or a dogmatic blueprint."

Just wondering if eBay makes it possible for you to sell [url=http://www.ticketchoice.com.au]concert tickets[/url] online? Do you know if there are any restrictions depending on what country you're in?

My parents have just called me and asked if i could "get rid" of their two tickets to a concert as they wont be able to make it because of yet another family event.

Apart from asking pals etc, i thought ebay would be a fantastic place to sell them.

But whats ebay's policy on marketing tickets? Ive heard alot about it within the news but ive forgotten what happened.

and if it matters, the concert is inside this coming month

Thanks ahead of time for the advice.
