    Had no idea Egypt was a Caliphate, although hardly surprising if one thinks about it.

    Anyways a good friend recently gave me some books:

    The books she gave me to me, were quite many more than I had expected, she was really too generous.
    -The first one is called Socialismens Ideer (Socialim's Ideas) by Erik Karlsson (from 1947),
    -Socialismen mellem utopi og virkelighed (Socialism, between Utopia and Reality) by Benito Scocozza (I love Italian names) printed 1982 (I like old books),
    -Den Demokratiske Folkerepublik Koreas socialistiske forfatning (The Democratic People's Republic of Korea's Socialist Constitution) 1972, very interesting, I also own Cuba's and the former USSR's constitution. Not a big fan of Korea myself, I've read some of the works of Kim Jong-Il (they are not communists, they believe themselves to be a higher form of Marxism that they call Juche, it's not a very scientific ideology, but it draws a lot from the Nietzchean übermensch theory (but it's more collective) and it's just bizarre, and his way of writing just gave me a headache.
    -the Last marxist one, Udvalgte Skrifter Bind 1 (Selected Works, volume 1) - Karl Marx printed 1937. I look forward to reading this, I've read most of Karl Marx's major early works, but this should be much more theoretical in the dialectic way (as opposed to the economic way, which is just very heavy stuff.)
    -Mit Liv med Martin Luther King (My Life with Martin Luther King)- Coretta Scott King 1970, this should go well with my other material, about a month or two ago I was really trying to study the African-American Issue and reading very heavily into the material of Malcolm X, Huey P. Newton (who fucking rocked) and Bobby Seales.
    -and the best book of all, International Connoisseur's Guide to Cigars - Jane Resnick. I am definitely looking forward to reading this. I am quite the fan of cigars. (Smoke them basically whenever I have a good excuse, which can be as tenuous as just going to a party, or the upcoming election.)

    I've finished the Cigar book.

    The last book I read was "Waylander" from David Gemmell. His books are quite recommendable!
    I remember the future used to be better
