It is intrustting to consider that young students my age, and
younger would already associate _class_, and other Taboo words with
'craziness'. How is it such young students are thought to turn a believe,
and political system away, trusting there grandparents conservatism?
I have also watered down my Marxism Paper to just the facts! No
idealogy except what he stated. There might be a bit in the conclusion but,
I made a deal with my socials teacher that i would hand in two assignments.
I also have chosen my own topics for socials to study this year, and WILL
get credit for them!!!!!
My new assingmentts has, Teachings and life of Karl Marx, Mao,
Castro, The Cuban revolution, the Nicaraguan revolution, nationalism, the
effects of the "Cultural revolution". Sound like a regular brainwashing huh!
Glad to have you on the list. Looking forward to seeing your paper on Marx.
Will forward them watered down one, and I am also putting it on my
www page FIGHT? in about a week. Come visite some time!
