  1. well said yourself jessiecat. fantastic Marx quote, where’s it from? the man never ceases to amaze, he’s a gift that keeps on giving…I should look at Davis again apropos all this, he’s surely the one to read. yes, the vultures descend.


  2. Well said.

    “It is absolutely impossible to transcend the laws of nature. What can change in historically different circumstances is only the form in which these laws expose themselves.”~K.M.

    Mike Davis calls it the ecology of disaster. Exposure to risk that the world’s poor endure is part of the way in which the circulation of capital is tangible in the world.

    Now come the vultures, with their loans to “rebuild” Haiti. And the cycle continues…


  3. Comrades interested in donating, but unsure what charity is on the level for a leftist might consider giving to the School Of The Americas Watch which is organizing relief. There are probably other worthy organizations as well, if comrades want to post them feel free. Here’s their blurb:
