Debout les damnés de la terre

I lately find myself party to occasions where my friends – who share the same background with me and, like me, deeply loath socialism in its most manifestations – lament the approach of the end of the world as we know it on account of current administration’s proposed policies.

From where I stand, socialism has long been here in the States.

At least, if you go by the ornamentation on a building near where I work.

Hammer and sickle, anybody?

Bonus points if you know where the title comes from.

    Bonus points if you know where the title comes from.

    I know, I know! It’s the first line of that famous song “L’Internationale”! It means roughly “Rise up (or arise) you wretched of the earth”.

    How many points did I win and what can I use them for?

    Well done, comrade! There may still be some revolutionary use for your obsession with all kinds of music.

    Your bonus points allow you to subscribe to the upcoming new limited edition of Lenin’s Complete Works.
