My experience of reading modern day literature (leaflets, website articles etc.) by Marxist political organisations is that they are repetitive and dull. They ramble on about exactly the same things they were rambling on about 20 years ago and make more effort trying to fit things into Marx's so called scientific theory rather than actually focusing on the true requirements of and issues affecting the ordinary folk they claim to represent.

Marxists really do come across as dull people.

In contrast, I find the Green Party far more interesting even in situations where they believe in things that I disagree with. There is some vigour to the Greens whereas Marxists appear tired and stale in comparison.

I don't think that anybody past the age of 30 who lives in the real world has any interest in Marxism. It's just a tiny handful of diehards and the naive younger generation who wants to go to university so they can learn about Marxism and rub shoulders with fellow comrades as they think that there is something cool about class struggle.

I wouldn't say I was dull, I began leaning towards the left-wing when I caught the ferry over to Portsmouth. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Portsmouth in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you'd say.

Now, where were we? Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones I think this was in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say dickety because the Kaiser had stolen our word twenty. I chased that rascal to get it back but gave up after dickety-six miles. Three wars back we called Sauerkraut "liberty cabbage" and we called liberty cabbage "super slaw" and back then a suitcase was known as a "Swedish lunchbox." Of course, nobody knew that but me. Anyway, long story short my ideologies origins are complicated and rambling.
