Why Marxists are phonies and failures: chapter one of Capitalist Realism

Dear M,

Mark Fisher's Capitalist Realism was a joy to listen to and it cost me $5.  The reason I bring up the $5 is because Mark Fisher charged me this even though he hates capitalism.  Or his left-wing publisher charged me this.  Or maybe they both agreed to charge me this.  Either way, I got the book and they got my money.

How to abort yourself

Dear H,

A while back I knew a man who prayed to God for children.  So far as I'm aware not even to get children, but to make a new man of himself.  His theory was that the more children he had the more he'd develop his character, and in the act of procreation he was creating a new version of himself -- more patient, and kind, and giving, and in general more Christian.  The fruit of the body would yield the Fruit of the Spirit.
