These seem to be the salad days for those who are opposing the Bush administration. The populace is with us, Bush has decided to cave in to pressure and acknowledge mistakes (as opposed to tightening his hold on things up through fear and manipulation) and growing scandals are making it so that the Republican Party itself is on the verge of losing legitimicy. So what to do now?
Hunter S. Thompson had a great idea about what to do when the going gets tough: "When the going get tough the weird go pro", meaning that they stick to their guns and, if anything, get more entrenched in whatever weirdness they're involved in as opposed to giving in.
But what to do when things are going well?
Maybe dip into the old theory bag and pull out some interesting figures from the past who may have something interesting to say?
I like Alexander Bogdanov personally. A mentor to Nikolai Bukharin, Bogdanov was the leader of a group at the extreme left of the Bolshevik party which was, in turn, pretty unorthodox from a Marxist standpoint, at least the sort of 'orthodox' standpoint advocated by Plekhanov and others. Paradigm Lost, blah
I can't write this right now, I don't have enough energy. Hopefully the bastards will be impeached or resign and we can get on with doing the things that we were doing before 9/11 hit.
