"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."
(Andre Gide)

Sugar-coated Satan Sandwich

EXTRACT: Communists will not be throwing their hats in the air to celebrate the wisdom and responsibility of the Congress majority in passing this so-called ‘compromise package’. The Budget Control Act is an emergency stopgap measure to be implemented at the expense of the working class, which will be hammered by a vicious programme of cuts. As things stand now, getting on for one in six are dependent on government food stamps - eking out a wretched existence in the wealthiest country on the planet. Yet we have just witnessed a de facto billionaires’ coup, aided and abetted by the Congress majority and designed to bail out an administration - and political system - that ultimately serves the selfish interests of the super-rich.
