[Xmca-l] Re: Sledgehammers in Mosul



There certainly are relevant connections between that article and the
media-ized representations of the Other, Henry.

There is a book review of Ilyenkov by David Bakhurst that speaks directly
to the discussion
of the ideal, and others of relevance to xmca concerns.

Which brings up the topic of zero-cost hi impact number academic journals
that would provide broader access to MCA contents. A topic I am happty to
leave to the next generation to solve.
