Marxism and Occupational Therapy

November 4, 2013

While doing research for my essay on my Occupational Therapy course, I found a fascinating section in a textbook on the influence of Marx, with just the gentlest inference that a good occupational therapist should be smashing capitalism. I thought it worth sharing. Related Posts:Free Market Capitalists and Anarchism – a Short Play“The personal is […]

June 12, 2013

When I started writing this blog three years ago, the internet landscape and my place in it was very different.

The Audacity of Hope

March 10, 2013

I was very struck, when I read Barack Obama’s book The Audacity of Hope by the total inaccuracy at criticisms levelled by the American and global left that he has been a disappointment as a President because he sold out on his ideals.
