The Cash Nexus

Saw a “Marxism, why don’t we give it one more try?” poster at Curtin, but an ad pinned nearby shows that the spirit of capitalism cannot be broken. If it was a rolly, they might be taking control of the means of production. A 4 day Marxism conference? Now that’s one event that really WILL be all about the rooting.

    I notice the Pinko poster is “Curtin Student Guild- Poster Approved.”

    I hope this new approval process doesn’t put the kybosh on the creativity of our Country Cousins.

    Dear P Nurry

    At first blush (which is the colour of the poster in fact) I find it impossible to fathom that a Chavez-loving leftie like Pilger can even be allowed back in Australia. Like that holocaust denying nazi lover David Irving, he should be banned.

    Has he written endless twaddle about walks around Allen Park musing over things like the potato board, ABBA and alien perceptions of what life in Swanborne must be like?

    Will this dimwit ever write countless (not to mention repetitive) diatribes about Kevin Rudd and his failed climate change aspirations?

    Furthermore, do people come up to him in coffee shops with the newspaper articles that he’s written for autographing?

    Does he do much cutting and pasting? Ands even when he does, is it noticable?

    The answer to all of the above is no! All this bolshie layabout does is write books, make the odd video about places under military occupation and go on about social injustices in the world. Hardly the stuff of good columns.

    In fact it’s enough to make me want to puke.

    And what the fuck are they doing with a speaker from Palestine? Gramsci wasn’t a Palestinean – I don’t even think he was an enclave-creating Muslim. Yet he had three – yes count them – three levels of hegemony. I doubt even Pilger has two.

    As for women’s liberation, forget it. All I need is three names – Alannah McTiernan, Pauline Hanson and Julie Bishop – to write about womens’ issue without look like a misogynist.

    Oh, of course there’s Condi Rice, and that’s when I can write in nig nog speak and pretend I’m being a satirist rather than a racist.

    Yep – I’m about as far from the left as one can get. Needless to say I won’t be going. Easter is all about red wine and choccies – not struggling workers.

    Speaking of posters, I would be obliged if someone could post some photos of the latest Community Newspaper Group wrap-around cover ad for Channel 9.

    As if a full-page front and back ads respectively touting Top Gear and Nine News (“Exclusive – It’s a NINE letter word”) weren’t enough, the page folds out to show a double-page “Channel 9 2010 Hall of Fame”.

    This has to be seen to be believed.

    Back to the poster, I haven’t seen any of these at UWA. If they were here, they’ve probably been plastered over by O-week posters. Daryl Braithwaite is the entertainment for UWA. I’m not too sure if that’s ironic cool or not. It might be if they’re selling PBR’s.
