McSocialists

I had have just read this on Alex White's blog. It just reminded me how much I am glad not to be involved in Student Politics anymore. It sounds as if meetings are just as pointless as they ever have been.
Nothing gave me the shits more than the McSocialists who would jump on every causes. Surprisingly, they never got the troops out of Iraq, saved ATSIC or freed the refugees. This went on while the whole Student Union collapsed around them because they did not fight the enemy on hand instead of battles which they weren't going to win. Plus they always enjoyed fights amongst themselves more than fights with the enemy.

    Dude. The problem is the hippies, not the socialists.

    Ah... I see the problem now.

    At the moment, the Libs and Unity aren't around to "unite" the left, and the left is too goddamn "democratic" to streamline itself or do anything other than debate endlessly with itself.

    Anyway, hopefully my rather pessimistic viewpoint, expressed in my entry (which you linked to) will be a relatively minor event in an otherwise good year.

    Hippies or McSocialists(Those who sell causes like McDonald's sell burgers)? Does it matter that one who was once involved can't tell them apart. How is naive student suppose to tell?

    Back when you were involved, they were in the same faction, so little wonder you don't know them apart.

    They were always two different groups but as I said it was always hard to tell them apart. That out break of mental illness did me well then. I wouldn't have coped with having to spot the differences.
