Real human rights - without any religious blackmail



G. Tingey • 6 April 2006

In the profile of Maryam Namazie, it says …

“a Marxism that values human rights”.

What sort of Marxism is that?

Not one I’ve ever seen before.

Given that Marxism is a classic religion itself, with the body-count to prove it, I find it hard to believe.

Good on Ms. Namazie for rubbishing the religious blackmail of Islam, but one must not jump straight from one totalitarian, murdering straitjacket to another.
