Steg how about you assign chapters out to people, they can edit the OCRed out text and PM it to you..? I'll take a chapter



and you have my bow

#42
i'll just continue putting settlers into HTML format on my own time and send it to steg when i'm done. i will note that it could take a while since i have less free time these days and i do time-consuming things like add anchor links for each endnote.

you guys can do a quicker version just to get it up sooner if you want to.

anyone is worth recruiting, really. you just shouldn't have to compromise your own views to meet them half-way.

like i remember certain ppl in ye olde LF encouraging de-emphasizing LGBT rights and abortion in order to "win over" NASCAR dads or whatever. i guess it is similar to certain lefties (such as myself at times, admittedly) glossing over Sanders' pro-imperialist stances.

The Berniecrat movement has been a real seat-of-the-pants affair - thrown together almost at the last minute, full of missteps and fumbles, etc. And they've already accomplished more in a single year than decades of far-left parties bickering among themselves about who is the True Marxist. Somehow after over a century and a half the majority of these people have still not figured out that Marx's approach - assess what's wrong with capitalism, then encourage a populist uprising - was not a want ad for thinkpieces. It was a call to action, for each of us to go out into our communities and start organizing. It took me a long time to figure this out, so I'm not trying to look down my nose at anyone when I say this. But it would be nice if people would stop clinging to a failed strategy. Because ultimately the failure of the left to actually organize is a not insignificant part of the reason why this country is sliding into the abyss, since we weren't around to put up a united front against the kind of people who spend all day trying to figure out an excuse for why sweatshops, ecological collapse, and mass death are actually A Good Thing.

Did some digging for source material on the last chapter's footnotes because it was small and I wanted to see what it would take:




1. PDF copy available of A Message to the Black Movement which you can find here: http://www.crepusculum.org:3711/domus/lf/BLA_AMessageToTheBlackMovement.pdf

Note that the page number is 16, not 18 as referenced in the footnote guide

2. (FOOTNOTE NUMBER MISSING) Purchased "The Negro and the American Labor Movement", essay collection, edited by Julius Jacobson. Will scan the relevant pages as needed.

3. (FOOTNOTE NUMBER MISSING - Chapter XIV, Paragraph 10) - PDF copy available of ""Black Coal Miners in the United States" here: http://www.crepusculum.org:3711/domus/lf/NYDEN_BlackCoalMinersInTheUnitedStates.pdf

Purchased "The Negro Almanac" by Ploski & Marr, will scan the relevant pages as needed.

4. see 2

5. (FOOTNOTE NUMBER MISSING) see 2

6. Took image of page 20 from "The American Coal Miner", whole report is available here (https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000042217) for someone with a partnered university account. Here's the image of the relevant page: http://www.crepusculum.org:3711/domus/lf/PRESIDENTSCOMMISIONONCOAL_TheAmericanCoalMiner_Pg20.png

Could not locate an online copy "Liberation for the Oppressed Nations and Peoples of Southern Africa" which appears to be a presentation at the Organizing Conference to Stop Southern African Coal in Atlanta, GA on Feb 1-2, 1975...HOWEVER, I did find a pdf of Radical America, Vol.9, No.3 in which an edited version appears: http://www.crepusculum.org:3711/domus/lf/RadicalAmerica_Vol9No3.pdf

7. see 2

8. see 6

9. Could not locate this pamphlet online

10. Purchased "Organized Labor and the Black Worker" by Froner, will scan relevant pages as needed.

11. see 10

12. Not sure what interview Sakai is referencing, but I found an article on Jordan Sims here in the Workers Vanguard (page 3): http://www.crepusculum.org:3711/domus/lf/WORKERSVANGUARD_No.83_Oct311975.pdf




If more of this needs to be done I'll pick another chapter...

you bought those books to corroborate Settlers? How much did you spend?

Duke Library has a scan of All Africa is Standing Up. I suppose one way to get it would be to ask via north carolina craigslist. How does a normal get jstor access again?>

that and they seemed like they'd be worth reading. i bought them all used for less than $30 bucks - they might also be referenced in the other chapters but I didn't check, so they might come in handy on other chapter footnotes.

also, there's a dude that has a pretty wicked collection of archival leftist material here: http://radicalarchive.tumblr.com/post/67960754400/all-africa-is-standing-up-african-liberation but I didn't follow up to see if he had the volume of "All Africa Is Standing Up" that I was looking for.

imo just start emailing grad students at http://literature.duke.edu & tell them what you want and why, it's the comstock lode of bourgeois marxians & there's bound to be someone cool in there somewhere

Um, you know that non-white people are perfectly capable of writing legibly and intelligibly, right? No I didn't have to decipher any bizarre grammar or crude pictograms..

i need to actually read it, but i've read the first chapter or two and Its Good. i always have an easier time talking about this kind of stuff/listening to lectures than I do reading, but its not because i get emotional. i get sleepy when i read for longish periods. i do better with listening and talking, but the fact that somebody researched, organized, and explained all of that information is really a tremendous work of character and radical thought put into action
