Cometh the Hour, Cometh the Man: A Profile of Boris Johnson ([link removed])
As some comrades may know, right wing dunce Boris Johnson was recently elected Prime Minister of the UK. In honor of this event, British commentator Toby Young decided to drop this sparkling profile of the new PM. Toby goes out of his way to accentuate how much of a perfect specimen of a man Boris apparently is, going so far as referring to Boris as an ubermensch: this piece is quite a wild ride.

** Some Subversive Literature

The Right to Be Lazy ([link removed])
In 1880, Karl Marx's son-in-law Paul Lafargue was in exile in London, assisted by Friedrich Engels. Though he was separated physically from the French workers’ movement, he continued to communicate with socialists there and helped them from afar. It was during this time that he wrote The Right to be Lazy, an essay critiquing attitudes and dogma around work from across the political spectrum.
