Socialism or barbarism

Fascinating post over at Mutualist blog on the age of revolution we seem to be living through, and how some revolutions are more cuddly than others, here - it's quite long, and I freely admit to only having read the first half, the last paragraph may well read "Exterminate the brutes" but I'll take that risk and highly recommend it.

As for barbarism - I recently read an article in Fortean Times about the nut-job tyrant of Turkmenistan - Niyazov - well, apparently he has now gone and closed all the libraries in his kingdom - I know, there are millions in the world who cannot reach any library and are denied information by economic censorship, but still, any such attack is a naked and savage spit in the face of humanity.

I don't know how, but I just feel these stories belong together.
