I'm Jess, and this here is my Tumblr. I'm a student and a Marxist in Melbourne, Australia; I blog a random (but very cool) assortment of things that are definitely worth your time. Enjoy!

The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas, i.e. the class which is the ruling material force of society, is at the same time its ruling intellectual force. The class which has the means of material production at its disposal, has control at the same time over the means of mental production, so that thereby, generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it. The ruling ideas are nothing more than the ideal expression of the dominant material relationships, the dominant material relationships grasped as ideas.

Highest paid Autralian CEOs

2010 was a rough year for many Australians – but not for the top 10 highest paid CEOS. With an extraordinary rise in executive salaries in Australia over the past 10 years, we can all see a widening gap between what CEOs earn and what they choose to pay their employees.

The average worker pulled in a little over $65K in 2010, whilst the average CEO of a company in the top 50 listed on the Australian Securities Exchange raked in over $6.4 million dollars – nearly 100 times the average salary. You may get flustered about earning $30 per hour, but these CEOs won’t get out of bed for anything less than $3,000 per hour.

What does this mean in the grand scheme of things? Well, the national median house price in June of 2010 was slightly over $550,000 – something many of us will need 25 to 30 years to pay off. To paint a scarier disparity in purchasing power, consider this: if the average worker paid no income tax, wasn’t charged interest on the home loan (fat chance!) and didn’t spend a cent on anything else, it would still take nearly nine years to pay off a mortgage. Under the same conditions, it would take the average CEO less than one month to own the same house outright.

Remember: the US, we’re frequently told, is in Afghanistan to bring democracy to the Afghan people and to teach them about freedom. But the Afghan government is refusing the US demand to imprison people without charges on the ground that such lawless detention violates their conceptions of basic freedom. Maybe Afghanistan should invade the US in order to teach Americans about freedom.
