in brief: This article is gold

Anti-Capitalist Tour Guide Offers Riot Sightseeing in Der Spiegel online.

I love an article where an author is trying to retain journalistic integrity while giggling at the subject matter.

“It’s all about the fact that capitalism is bullshit, and we’re against the system.”

Everyone looks at him, but no-one says anything. It’s Marxism against capitalism, the people against the police. NATO and the Warsaw Pact may no longer be at loggerheads, but in every other way Germany seems to once again be a country in which the world can be reduced to the same simplistic dichotomy of a quarter-century ago: the battle between good and evil.
