Campfire stories for communists

I like to imagine that, within in the now-forgotten mass of Soviet-era culture, somebody must have tried a literal take on Marx’s rhetorical flourishes.
Because Marx was obviously a fan of horror. It’s in many of his catchiest phrases – the spectre of communism, tradition which “weights like a nightmare on the brains of the living”, or capital as “dead labour, that, vampire-like, only lives by sucking living labour”
Derrida apparently devoted a [book](http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0415910455/dhalgrenstevensh) to this theme; personally, I’d much rather encounter it as children’s television.

Want to write a bit of a comic? I’ll draw! 😀 No, like, seriously. Let’s talk about it. It’d be a laugh.
(Also, France next week. How very exciting. Text me once you’re settled in & let’s go for dinner!)

That’d be fun; no idea if it’d work, but the attempt would be fun.
Yes, I arrive in France on Thursday morning. We should definitely meet up; will get in touch when I have a moment.
