The new apaches

“They will respect neither the putrefied corpses of high whores nor the imbecilic devotion of the wage earner to his master’s money.”

Will at Drink-Soaked Trotskyite Popinjays for WAR believes we could learn from Victor Serge and those virile French:

I’m with the bandits. I find their role to be noble; sometimes I see in them men. Elsewhere I see only fools and puppets.

The bandits demonstrate strength.

The bandits demonstrate daring.

The bandits demonstrate their firm determination to live.

At the same time, “the others” submit to the landlord, the boss and the policeman; they vote, protest against iniquities and die as they lived: miserably.
