  • A MARXIST, A MUSLIM, AND A MOONIE WALK INTO A BAR…

    Filed at 6:19 am under by dcobranchi

    The Guardian (UK) has a somewhat disturbing piece profiling three young women who fit the title categories (well, the “Moonie” actually belongs to some other cult but I couldn’t pass up the alliteration). Of the three, the anti-capitalist seems the least rational.

    “I believe that I am a small part of a growing movement that will change the world. In 50 years’ time we will have become a massive force, overthrown capitalism and replaced it with something much nicer,” she says…

    Her boyfriend, John, 32, is also an active member of the anti-capitalist movement. For their first date two years ago they protested at the Genoa G8 summit, where Jowett showed him how to soak his scarf in lemon juice to lessen the effects of tear gas. “It brings us together. I couldn’t be with someone who would rather go shopping on a Saturday than go to a demonstration.”

    She doesn’t want kids. The other two women are rasing younguns and homeschooling them. So, this isn’t entirely OT.
