  1. Thus labor power is also an exchangeable commodity with any individual 
possessor of it able to sell it for a price on the market.  Wages and salaries are 
only special names for the price of labour-power for the price of this peculiar 
commodity, which has no other repository than human flesh and blood. (Marx) (Marnie Holborow, Language and Neoliberalism, 18) #slowscholarship, #archive #scms2016  #InSearchofMableNormand #commodity

  19. “TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those 
times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.” H. Zinn A Power Governments Cannot Suppress, p. 270.
