Not my kind of book but even if it were, I wouldn't bother to read it.


Classic story, have seen it many a time.

Her dad lost out on 1/3 of a large inheritance due to his alcoholism which he ended up dying from in his early 40's.
Initially the eldest brother, should have been the star of the family but his demons killed him.
Daughter loses out on her fathers inheritance.
Father has to leave his career as a pilot due to drinking, creates another career that fails and ends up as an adult living back at home in his parents basement.
Donald inherits empire.
Bitterness reigns.
....

This is a good primer on the idea of anarchist communism, I'm pretty sure it can be found for free on sites like theanarchistlibrary.org and libcom.org for anyone who is so inclined. Short and consise chapters makes it easily digestible (it's basically a pamphlet y'all). You can probably read chapter 1-3 in well under an hour which basically answers the what and whys before the author starts getting too bogged down in minutiae (the hows) that might not be as relevant today. The forewords tend to be really dry and focused primarily on situating the text and author historically so feel free to skip it altogether if you're not particularly interested in the history of socialist thought leading up to the 1890s.

The answer to 1984 is 1973 § Panasonic or Samsung - that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer.

V8, I am so glad, that we and they did not have cameras, when I was still working in Law Enforcement, I was a good LEO, unless perp was woman beater then it might have been a long ride to the Station.

Cut it. It is very hard to believe in retired lawman who approves looting and arson.
Its much more likely an expelled lawman.
