Goes something like this... 7:30 wake up to the sound of Radio Moscow on my Sony Walkperson spend half an hour contemplating the gender role I intend playing this day. 8:00 Breakfast is a free range soft boiled egg followed by meusli, the milkperson has not called today so I have my Nicaraguan coffee non-white. 8:20 Go off to have my labour exploited. Bus late demonstrating the inefficiencies of the free market system and hence the inevitability of it's eventual collapse, 9:00 Arrive at work. My personager does not seem to have accepted the case I made for day care nursery provision. Perhaps herm will be more receptive when we have some employees with children of pre school age. 9:45 I notice that there is now a notice in the Male lavatories requesting that sanitary towells should not be disposed of in the toilet. Does this mean that a sanitary can is also going to be provided? 12:45 Lunch, I go to the new Vegetarian restaurant at the corner and buy a sandwich. The waitee tells me that they are organised as a cooperative - proof that worker power is indeed challenging the corporatist exploitation of the proletariat. I must raise this at the next party meeting. 13:45 Back to work. It's starting to get cold! I hope it warms up a bit before saturday. Its much worse standing about selling the paper in the wet as people are much less willing to talk. Still if Marx and Lenin had allowed themselves to be discouraged by such events how would the processes of Historical Materialism have smashed the borgouise capitalist system to create the worker state? 17:30 Home time at last. On the way back I pick up a newspaper and a sandwich. Much as I would prefer to support an independent newspaper which is not the mouthpiece of the establishment I buy a Guardian so I can read If and Donnesbury. 19:30 Go out to my conciousness medianating group. I feel a great feeling of solidarity on such occasions with the oppressed minorities in society. I am pleased now that I switched from the anti-patriarchy conciousness raising group, after all the idea of raising conciousness must surely be elitist in some respect and thus serve to support the class structure of our society. 21:30 After the session we join with the wymins Zap action Cheeswire brigade. Such occasions are vital to building grass roots level solidarity with others united in our cause. It was noticable that far from being intmidated by our male presence our sister bretheren did almost all the talking. Obvously their conciousness medianating is suceeding! I learned that I still poses many sexist and patriarchal attitudes. I must try to eliminate these 23:30 Home at last, only time for a single chapter of Capital before going to sleep. Workers of all lands UNITE ! Keep a very firm grasp on reality, so you can strangle it at any time.
