politricks and
other black magick

I guess at some point there will be a neat blurb here explaining my incredible understanding of world history, current affairs, and how to get out of this mess we call capitalism. Probably with a quote by some long dead european which is both poignant and prophetic. Then again...

Like a lot of people I have come to some conclusions, but there's no way I have all the answers. The texts and links here should be seen as signposts to show the route I have taken so far.

It should go without saying that I consider a lot of the other texts on this site to be just as political as these ones.
