More From The Dollop
If you are using Internet Explorer 10 (or later), you might find some of the links I have used won't work properly unless you switch to 'Compatibility View' (in the Tools Menu); for IE11 select 'Compatibility View Settings' and then add this site (anti-dialectics.co.uk). Microsoft's new browser, Edge, automatically renders these links compatible; Windows 10 also automatically makes IE11 compatible with this site.
However, if you are using Windows 10, Microsoft's browsers, IE11 and Edge, unfortunately appear to colour these links somewhat erratically. They are meant to be dark blue, but those two browsers render them intermittently mid-blue, light blue, yellow, purple and red!
Firefox and Chrome reproduce them correctly.
If your Firewall/Browser has a pop-up blocker, you will need to press the "Ctrl" key at the same time or these links won't work, anyway!
I have adjusted the font size used at this site to ensure that even those with impaired vision can read what I have posted at this site. However, if the text is still either too big or too small for you, please adjust your browser settings!

In 'reply' to this, Mr D has sallied forth to prove that nature doesn't abhor a vacuum, at least not between his ears:
"I haven't checked the links, but am I Mr. D?
"You know, this is a sad case of Trotskyist obsessive-compulsive behaviour, i.e. of a Trot consumed by his (sic) quarrels with other Trots, and to a lesser extent his competitors among other Marxist-Leninists. It's pathetic.
"It's true that diamat -- at least as stated formulaically as it always is -- is a wasteland. Discounting also the inept forays of dialectical into formal logic, there are other more pressing concerns about what a dialectical historical perspective on social and ideological contradictions might look like, or what a dialectical take on Marx's Capital might entail."
The reader will note that, apart from abuse (livened up with yet more irrelevance), Mr D has no coherent response to make to my Essays. He still thinks I am attacking Diamat!
Except, perhaps, for this prime example of complicated Hegel-speak:
"Get a life, Rosa, or at least buy a vibrator."
Anyone notice any sexist overtones here? Or, am I being too much of a Trotskyist?
Well I have no need of a vibrator, just something beginning with D: a brainless object called a 'Dumain' -- which others misleadingly call a 'Dildo'.
Stop Press -- here is his highly intellectual response to the above:
"I am so touched.
"A whole page, just for me. It's the Trot
version of Krazy Kat.
"Maybe I should revive my Dead Trotsky Jokes after a decade. Does your head have a hard-on or is that an ice-pick in your skull?"
Who says autodidacts don't have an inferiority complex?
And talking of small 'equipment':
"PS: I wouldn't fuck Rosa with Lou Proyect's gopher dick."
Now that would have been a huge improvement over Mr D's diminutive 'd'.
And all because I had the temerity to question 'dialectics' and the bona fides of traditional philosophy.
I plainly have no shame...
