Histomat: Adventures in Historical Materialism

'Historical materialism is the theory of the proletarian revolution.' Georg Lukács

Anti-capitalist students at Adam Smith College in Scotland have put two fingers up to the Establishment by disowning er, Adam Smith. The Scotsman comments 'could it be the first sign of a return to the spirit of 1968, when radical students took to the barricades? The red flag is fluttering proudly over - of all unlikely venues - the Adam Smith College in Fife, where the Students' Association has rejected the name of its entrepreneurial patron and opted instead to commemorate Jennie Lee, spouse of Aneurin Bevan. What makes their cause even more célèbre is the fact that Gordon Brown is chancellor of the college, as well as of the Exchequer.'

Gordon Brown apparently regards Smith as one of his heroes...
