The Big Hello Thread

constant escape

winter withered, warm
A much less daunting audience than the WELCOME LURKER thread, I would say. Lights!

Hello @beiser - it's nice to have you with us. The name is escape, constant escape.

Intimidating as the play may allegedly be to join, toxic it is not. I'd like to think your opinions, whatever they may be, are voiceable here, met perhaps with criticism - or extravagant theatrics - but not dogpiling vitriol. That said, had you found yourself in radical disagreement with the currents here, you wouldn't have stepped up in the first place, no?

So play what role you may, but need not you, nor any onlooking lurker, feel the bill is booked. The roles are unlimited, the rehearsal infinite - but sorry, we are out of champagne.

it's a headfake. just getting you all comfortable with me before launching a 500 post flame war about how Henry George was a greater economic thinker than Marx.

to be fair, the entire Georgist wikipedia universe popped into being only a couple years ago, an ardent Georgist spent a few years building out hundreds of articles and sections in other pages. A high-leverage ideological venture for sure.

Are you coming from a marxist angle?

edit: which doesn't necessarily mean your arguments will be marxist.

Never been enough of a big-brain to understand Marx, although there are some things in the tradition that need saving. Some sort of idiosyncratic / syncretist thought. The big influences are probably George, Unger and various figures in the Chinese New Left.

It was before my time, but I don't think he was booted. I think he just decided to leave. Apparently the Thought and Politics sections were pretty fractious back in the day.
