"On the counter lay a list of the top ten pop tunes, and a big, ugly, ignorant-looking guy said, 'Fifteen percent of 'em are communists,' meaning the singers who'd recorded the tunes.

[Afterword by author] "I have a dangerous vision. I see capitalism once and for all overthrown; truly overthrown, not just replaced with a new power structure just as fawning upon scientists and just as exploitative of them and their fake charisma as ever was the old. The only kind of socialism of communism I'm interested in is one that makes science and scientists look a bit ridiculous, to be humored, maybe, but never taken in by; never catered to, always kept in their place. Humanism--and if communism isn't humanism, as Marx and Engels defined it, it is nothing--is incompatible with scientism. "

Andre Couandeau, my grandfather's father, had joined the [Communist] Party in the 1920s, and, at least according to family legend, died under a cop's nightstick during the sit-down strike at Firestone ten years later. Mama, in her stroller, had attended Paul Robeson's last concert in America, claimed she remembered the backs of the longshoremen and truckers as they stood down the Legionaires 'for free speech.' she always told me, 'You get free speech when you get the power to stand up for yourselves. Till then all you have is tolerated speech, Josh, no matter what they tell you in school.' "
Communist USA 1980 Barnes, John. Kaleidoscope Century. New York: Tor (1995); pg. 19. "We argued a lot about what I got taught in school, because I saw no sense in arguing with teachers.

Not when I could quietly drift along in the back of the room, ignored by everyone, and keep my concentration on basic issues like saving up for a car out of my job at McDonald's. It was okay with me that we went to CP [Communist Party] stuff all the time, and the demonstrations were kind of fun, but it was like being born a Witness or a Mormon--you weren't exactly like the people around you, but you weren't not like them, either. You just had a slightly different set of adult friends and links to different families than other kids did. "
Communist USA 1980 Barnes, John. Kaleidoscope Century. New York: Tor (1995); pg. 19. "When I was little, Mama's cell used to meet at the house, but that stopped pretty soon because Daddy was not what you could call 'reliable.' I get the impression he was never invited to join the [Communist] Party. Anything that excluded him rankled him, but he mostly confined himself to claiming he was going to turn Mama in (even though the Party had been legal for years) 'for the reward.' Then he'd laugh and say he was kidding.

Now and then they'd ask him to talk to a meeting about his time in prison. He'd tell the same stories, all from his first book, over and over. " [Many other refs., not in DB. See also pg. 22, 25, 53-55, 58, 68, 132, etc.]

"
Communist USA 1985 Barnes, John. Kaleidoscope Century. New York: Tor (1995); pg. 54. "Once I left home I'd dropped everything connected with the Communist Party. Now, if I wanted to, I could let the Party go completely. They couldn't make me do anything; if I wanted to leave the Party forever, I could just listen politely to Harris and send him on his way. I resolved to keep that in mind as I talked to him. 'But I've got three jobs already, and I'm not hurting for money. It would have to be something worthwhile.' "
Communist USA 1985 Barnes, John. Kaleidoscope Century. New York: Tor (1995); pg. 58. "I guess regular American guys would have been shocked, but I grew up understanding that the USA had to fall, that it was the center of world capitalism and the target. And then as I got to know Party members, I was exposed to a lot of cynicism too, because by the 1980s, the CP was running short on believers and long on opportunists. So I don't think I had much in the way of patriotism, and I'd never had it, and I knew perfectly well that if Harris said the CP would do it, you'd have to go to the Mafia for a better guarantee.

Figure, a few years in electronics as an enlisted man; after that; well, if the CP wanted me to stay in the Army, of course I would, and money would keep piling up till I retired at half pay--and with the age jump I was getting out of this, I'd be thirty-six and well-off. Lots of time to do more stuff. Or if Harris's bosses only wanted some specific things, they might cut me loose... "

Below, the SUBbie found himself in absolute darkness, and tripped over a power cord. Simultaneously the TUGgie squined as all lights were swung around to bear on him.

But I'm not here to give a speech. I'm here to propose an amendment . . .' Here he was dive-bombed by the bat, who veered away at the last moment; the speaker jumped back in horror, to the amusement of almost everyone.
