A couple of weeks back I recycled Michael Moorcock's argument that JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings was, amongst other things, a veiled depiction of class struggle in Britain, with the northern working class cast as evil Orcs.

I'm not surprised, then, to see the formation of the Bolshevork Party:

The Bolshevork Party is an organization to unite the oppressed Orcs everywhere in their fight to build a socialist society...

Long ago Marxists pointed out the necessity for true internationalism. The keen thinker J. Posadas postulated the existence of UFOs and argued that internationalism was not enough, that what we need is interstellarism. We carry this thought one step further: True socialism has to be interdimensional and interparalleluniversal. This is why our struggle takes place in Europe and America as well as in Middle-earth or Fredonia.

Sadly, J Posadas was a good deal more real than anything in Middle Earth...
