Couldn’t sleep at 4 a.m. so I totally revamped my TINA THOUGHTS theme to make it more consistent with my way better blog, TINA THINGS.

Think I should probably do some real blogging here so employers know I’m not a complete waste of time. What do you think?

Regardless—
<3 you, bros.

"Down with this contemptible fraud! There cannot be, nor is there nor will there ever be ‘equality’ between the oppressed and the oppressors, between the exploited and the exploiters. There cannot be, nor is there nor will there ever be real ‘freedom’ as long as there is no freedom for women from the privileges which the law grants to men, as long as there is no freedom for the workers from the yoke of capital, and no freedom for the toiling peasants from the yoke of the capitalists, landlords and merchants.

Let the liars and hypocrites, the dull-witted and blind, the bourgeois and their supporters hoodwink the people with talk about freedom in general, about equality in general, about democracy in general."
