Momus, Hero Of The Revolution

March 23rd, 2005 | researchmaterial

Click Opera is still probably the best-written blog on the Anglophone web:

My best friend is a Greek communist studying Sociology (he now works as a transport advisor in Greece, engineering the downfall of the private car). In 1980 he’s reading Stalin’s biography. He admires Stalin’s ruthlessness and tells me that, come the revolution, if it becomes necessary he won’t hesitate to have me shot. He’s decided not to make love to his French girlfriend because he believes, with some of the more radical feminists, that all acts of penetration are a form of imperialism. Later, when we all move to London, his girlfriend gets sick of the non-intervention and becomes mine instead.
