How many Trotskyists does it take to change a light bulb?

Well by the time they’ve formed a steering committee, drafted a resolution condemning capitalist light bulb manufacturers, gone out and tried to sell a few newspapers, condemned the resulting darkness as bourgeois oppression and then gone down the pub; none.

But never mind, come the revolution…

Comrades the proletariat are incandescent with rage

Motion passed. By.

I do my thing

I’m currently reading a book that makes reference to the work of Fritz Perls. Not in any great detail, just a few references. Quotes mainly. Quotes which seem quite apposite to my life at the moment. So I searched the web for some of Fritz Perls’ quotes and found this:

“I do my thing and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful. If not, it can't be helped.”
Fritz Perls

Make of it what you will.
