Power politics: Thatcher and Pol Pot

These days Indymedia makes me want to scream more than anything else. It epitomises the mire in which the contemporary 'anarchist' movement has become embedded. Most days Indymedia is home to animal liberationists, conspiracy theorists, post-modernists embroiled in identity politics and apologists for Islamists and other authoritarians (but it's OK so long as they hail from a minority group). Criticism of any of these is likely to get you labelled a fascist or a racist (which is pretty rich given my ethnic background...).

Anyway, for the first time in ages there's a post worth reading. It's angry, amusing, humane and pointed. Worth reading.
