It was inevitable with the unchecked rise of German nationalism. Their whole government needs to be shaken up.

I'm tired of these power hungry tyrants getting power. They need new leadership. A man of the people. Someone from outside politics. Someone more thoughtful and philosophical. Like a writer, or maybe an artist.

Villa is a distraction, comrade. The American bourgeois seeks to inflame the patriotic impulses of the proletariat in order to distract them from the days of fire in St. Petersburg. Do not be misled!

I can't believe they killed Franz Ferdinand before he could finish his second album.

He had it coming! The Holy Roman Empire was neither Holy, Roman, or even an Empire!

don't be silly; women aren't supposed to "think" or "vote" or "get equal pay for equal work".

I'd be more active here, but I seem to have a touch of flu. Probably nothing, should go away in a few days.
