from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
I noticed that the socialist workers’ party of Spain (Partido Socialistas y Obrero Espaǹol), since 2011 in opposition, seemingly abandoned its former symbol, a fist crushing a rose. I recall that some time ago on Fog of Chaos I commented on that telling symbol, and on the Spanish comrades singing the International, same like ours.
WWhile the Andalucian and Catalonian comrades stick to the traditional hammer and sickle, under which more than 160 million people were killed, the umbrella national party is trying to present less harsh, almost human face. This time the rose appears to grow from a ‘T’. The people with memory know that the socialists never managed to grow anything but debt, moral and fiscal. The others will learn, to their sorrow.
