"Ian Rankin once explained to an interviewer (the head of the Indian Communist Party!) that crime fiction is a way of talking about social inequality. Ron Jacobs applies that same maxim to the Sixties... in his wonderfully noir trilogy of those exhilarating and troubled times. And what Rankin does for Edinburgh, Jacobs amply illuminates for the Movement. Much much more than ripping yarns (though they are that too), from a master who's been there, done that, and lived to tell a tale or two."

Fire and Blood, Socialism or Barbarism

I tell you what is barbarism, Ron. That is YOU contributing to Luis Proyect's site, even as you know that it maintains a complete censoring of all counter views to his own pro US imperialist one's.

I became a socialist when socialists were the best builders of the antiwar movement. You and Proyect are not only not builders of any antiwar movement, but are actually builders of all the Pentagon pro more US made war propaganda campaigns! What barbarism that is! And barbaric is how socialists who are against your politics are thrown offline when they protest yours and his politics. Shameful.
