Some Long Overdue Gratitude, Plugs, and Recognition

During my time as author of The Charnel-House I have been the beneficiary of a number of appreciative comments and plugs that have helped to publicize and further spread the word about my blog.  Needless to say, I am deeply grateful to have received these endorsements.  But now it has come time to return their generosity, as well as to include a few plugs of my own.

First of all, I should like to thank the following blogs for their support:

1. Anti-German/Anti-National Translation: A blog with incredible breadth and critical acuity, providing translation work as well as discussions of anti-Semitism on the Left.

2. Nasty, Brutalist, and Short: Perhaps the most original and intriguing architectural critic to be found in the blogosphere, writing from an explicitly Bolshevist and pro-Modernist perspective.

3. Renegade Eye: A blog associated with the Trotskyist International Marxist Tendency (IMT), whose position on Chavez and Venezuela might be a far cry from my own, but which always provides interesting articles and topics for discussion.  The quality of discussion varies from post to post, but the author of the blog himself is quite to-the-point and intellectually honest.

4. Bob From Brockley: Of all the blogs that have linked to mine, I am by far the least acquainted with this one.  From what I understand, the author is a British Leftist who quickly got fed up with all the nonsense floating around on the Left there.  It’s a blog I’d love to explore some more in the coming months.

The list of sites I’d like to plug is too long for a single post, but you’ll find them all in my links on the right-hand side of the page, organized roughly according to their content.  I recommend all of them, with the only reservation being that they do not necessarily reflect my own views.  Nevertheless, I find all of them engaging enough to check out.  Enjoy!

    • This is reassuring news indeed. I mean, for your organization, it needn’t entail an absolute split away from its longstanding support of the Bolivarian Revolution taken as a whole. Not that I’d mind that; I’ve never been too keen on Chavez and his government.

      I hate to reduce it to bald self-interest, because the situation is obviously more complex than that, but Venezuela stands to make a TON of money so long as turmoil continues to spread in the Middle East. So that might actually bolster his position domestically, since he’ll finally be able to finance some of those social programs that have been short of funds lately.

  2. Without socialist leadership, accidents of history fill the void in a revolutionary situation, like Nasser. Chavez is an accident of history.

    He hasn’t destroyed the old state apparatus, so he is surrounded by people, who do more sabotage than the right.

    The PSUV is the largest workers party in history. It’s a good place to fight the hacks.

  3. I just want to say I’m all new to blogging and seriously enjoyed you’re page. Probably I’m going to bookmark your website . You absolutely have fantastic articles. Kudos for revealing your website page.
