The next book on my list is "Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts", and I can't stop wondering if I should read Adam Smith and David Ricardo first...

I confess that I didn't feel that I received all the messages, mainly because I don't know much about the post-Napoleonic French period.
And some chapters were really technical and uncomfortable, but I love Marx's sassy and journalistic writing. It was really enjoyable and funny.

I finally finished 18 Brumaire and wow, the last chapter got me deeply.

about names 

In the past few weeks, I was thinking about how strange it is how cis people (including me) instantly accept their birth names and basically build an entire personality based on something they didn't choose.

I can't recognize myself without being called by my name. And it was something that I just accepted.

Well, there is no conclusion.

And it's so sad to find an interesting Argentine, but actually loves Macri nowadays.

It's not like "omg, I hate USA so much", I just tell how imperialism works.
The hate is just a consequence.

I started to talk more often with foreigners (foreigners) to practice the languages ​​I learned.

Every time I'm too political, someone says "but why do you hate USA so much?"

Those old goths don't understand the magnitude of this song to our community lol

Listening to ABBA and remembering when I was kicked out of a gothic ballad when I decided to put "Lay Down Your Love on Me" on jukebox.

I just read now "[The capitalist system] tries to convert the whole life of the worker and his family, in a great journey to value capital"

My mom talking to my brother: "This neuroscience course looks incredible, but does not give certificate, and you need one to put on your LinkedIn".


Hello, comrades!
I am Jacofried, just a Latin American who is using quarantine to study political theory, and especially Marx.
I am very new to this, so I do not have a solid political position, but it's a matter of time.
My main hobbies are cooking, gardening and literature.

English is not my mother tongue, so I'll make some grammatical mistakes eventually. Sorry about that.

A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
