Quote of the Indeterminate Time Interval – Raymond Lotta

by wfgodbold

There’s no Communist revolutionary like an old Communist revolutionary, I always say. And Raymond Lotta certainly qualifies:

I challenge any speaker at this conference [the constitution convention convention] to debate the following proposition: A constitution that protects the right of any corporation to exploit and lay off workers, while denying the basic right to eat, is economically, socially, and morally bankrupt.

The Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America is based on this new synthesis and is a concrete plan for a different kind of state power that makes common cause with—not wars against—the oppressed of the world. It would be an economy and society based on what humanity needs and geared to protecting the ecosystems of the planet. This would be a government that mobilizes people to uproot the legacies of the oppression of minority nationalities and women.

This is as good a place as any to retort with Kevin Baker’s traditional Victims of Communism Day image:

Old Reds like Lotta won’t quit agitating for revolution until they’ve died of old age; if we were actually the kind of society they claim, we wouldn’t even bother waiting that long. They’d’ve long since been disposed of.
