About Stalin and Magritte

Don’t ask me why I ended up at the home page of the Stalin Society of North America. And, when you haven’t asked me that, don’t ask me why they’re co-opting Surrealist iconography (and my Blogger profile pic) for their murky ends.

In your case, as Magritte pointed out, Ceci n'est pas une pipe surrealistique. In the case of the Stalin Society of North America, it is a pipe: a definite and socialist realist pipe. Any apparent resemblance between the two is the result of bourgeois capitalist/Trotskyist conspiracy.
