Just a quick introduction.  I recently joined this mailing list / discussion
group, and am quite happy that I did.

I'm a 29 year old Canadian, and have been studying Marx for approximately 11
years now.  I have an honours degree in history, as well as a degree in
education.  If I had to pigeon hole my political belief set, I would say I'm
a "Trotskyist."

I'm looking forward to exchanging ideas with my comrades here, and am
excited at expanding my understanding of Marxism in general.

Nice to meet everybody!

Where force is necessary, there it must be applied boldly, decisively and
completely. But one must know the limitations of force; one must know when
to blend force with a maneuver, a blow with an agreement.
-Leon Trotsky

In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing
heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.
-John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

A mass of tears have transformed to stones now
Sharpened on suffering
Woven into slings
Hope lies in the rubble of this rich fortress
Taking today what tomorrow never brings
-Zach de la Rocha, Ashes in the Fall
