Solah Power

MEET Benjamin Solah, marxist horror writer and fierce defender of illegal aliens' right to torch their taxpayer-funded digs.



The horrors in my stories are capitalism itself, and the things capitalism cause: wars, racism, exploitation, sexism and homophobia...One of my earliest stories was called 'Couch Potato' and involved my character waking up in the middle of the night to find a human sized potato watching TV waiting to take revenge on my character and his family after they ate the potato's friends as mashed potato for dinner that night.

Greg Hywood, fairfax CEO, claims to be hiring at the moment. Benjie is a natural for the Phage.

  1. "the things capitalism cause: wars, racism, exploitation, sexism and homophobia"

    "Causes", but anyway... I guess wars have been around a while, certainly pre-dating capitalism. The other constructs are modern memes, possible due to capitalist book and media publishers thumping their leftist tubs. So... he's mostly right.

  2. If not for public subsidy - he'd starve.

    Just wasted a few minutes reading some of his stuff.

    It's execrable rubbish. He seems semi-literate at best.

  3. I can spot at least three things in the photo that capitalism delivered to him; not counting the tense grimace.

  4. It's good to put a face to "the enemy".

  6. Are you sure that's not Neil from the Young Ones? Dead ringer, though he's aged well.

    Speaking of homophobia, should we edify this self-described 'Marxist horror writer' than ol' Karl and his mate Freidrich Engels described homosexuality as an 'abomination'?
