Marxism and Autism: there is a spectrum haunting Europe

09/07/2016 - 18:30

As part of Workers' Liberty's annual Ideas For Freedom event, Janine and Dr Dinah Murray will introduce a discussion on Marxism and autism.

How can Marxism explain the autistic experience in modern capitalism? What is the political economy of the neurodiverse working class? How are autistic people exploited and oppressed?

Venue: Student Central, Malet Street, London.

Crazed Loner

R.I.P. Jo Cox MP

Crazed loner
Stay-at-homer
Helpline phoner
Hummer and groaner
Window licker
Timebomb ticker

Deranged and estranged
He's a stabber, a shooter
Overly obsessed with his computer

He's nothing to do with us, you see
No link to white supremacy
Not our responsibility
We're pillars of civility
Not killers, no culpability

How to Cover Up the Evidence

Concealer hides the redness and the bruises
Long sleeves disguise the marks along her arm
A bangle covers twisted wrist contusions
A bandage shields her fractured thumb from harm
Dark glasses screen her puffy eyes and tears
Uncertain smile conceals the broken tooth
The scent he bought her drowns the smell of fear
A well-told story masks the brutal truth
