New collective identities...

Occupy wall street freak show

What Marx was about was trying to encourage people to overcome their social isolation, which is produced in this market, individualist, commodified society; to create new social identities, new collective identities, and organizations that express those; and undertake a massive social and political transformation.

I got this recipe from a friend. It is very easy, and doesn't take long to make.

Ingredients

  1. 473.2 ml warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  2. 157.7 ml white sugar
  3. 22.2 ml active dry yeast
  4. 7.4 ml salt
  5. 59.1 ml vegetable oil
  6. 1419.5 ml bread flour

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam.
  2. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well oiled 9x5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
