A Paradise Built in Hell by Rebecca Solnit
Rate this book

I have a lot of disagreements with Solnit's politics generally, and my copy of this book is filled with frustrated marginalia in response to some of her anarchist contentions (some of which I think are actually dangerous in their hostility to the ...more
A Paradise Built in Hell by Rebecca Solnit
"I was ready to quibble with her premise, really, I was. I still sort of want to at parts of this book. But it's so beautiful, and it makes me believe that things are possible, that making the world better is possible.

The Speech by Bernie Sanders
Rate this book
Clear rating
The significance of this speech was more in the act of giving it than in the speech itself, which isn't really worth reading today unless you're writing books about Bernie (which is why I read it, heh).

Leon Trotsky
“Natasha has just come up to the window from the courtyard and opened it wider so that the air may enter more freely into my room. I can see the bright green strip of grass beneath the wall, and the clear blue sky above the wall, and sunlight everywhere. Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression and violence, and enjoy it to the full.”
Leon Trotsky

C.L.R. James
“The cruelties of property and privilege are always more ferocious than the revenges of poverty and oppression. For the one aims at perpetuating resented injustice, the other is merely a momentary passion soon appeased.”
C.L.R. James, The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L'Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution

Wallace Stevens
“The final belief is to believe in a fiction, which you know to be a fiction, there being nothing else. The exquisite truth is to know that it is a fiction and that you believe in it willingly.”
Wallace Stevens, Opus Posthumous: Poems, Plays, Prose

C.L.R. James
“The rich are only defeated when running for their lives.”
C.L.R. James, The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L'Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution

C.L.R. James
“It is Toussaint's supreme merit that while he saw European civilisation as a valuable and necessary thing, and strove to lay its foundations among his people, he never had the illusion that it conferred any moral superiority. He knew French, British, and Spanish imperialists for the insatiable gangsters that they were, that there is no oath too sacred for them to break, no crime, deception, treachery, cruelty, destruction of human life and property which they would not commit against those who could not defend themselves.”
C.L.R. James, The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L'Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution
