quote: 'community life (comprising general or partial assemblies) does not prohibit class struggle. on the contrary. violent contrasts between wealth and poverty, conflicts between the powerful and the oppressed, do not prevent either attachment to the city nor an active contribution to the beauty of the oeuvre. in the urban context, struggles between fractions, groups and classes strengthen the feeling of belonging. political confrontations between the 'minuto popolo' the 'popolo grosso', the aristocracy and the oligarchy, have the city as their battle ground, their stake. these groups are rivals in their love of the city.'

Sounds like an interesting book from a "Masquerade" perspective.

The Storyteller

PS I'm really getting into the whole multiple identities thing. Yeah Yeah I know from an internet perspective I'm like YEARS late but hey I'm having fun now alright?

You know my neighbour, Matthew, after 11 months finally referred to me by my real name this morning. He used to think it was Simon. I can't help but wonder how he found out my real name! I mean, sure he could look at my mail but WHY would he do that if he was content to think of me as Simon. And I wonder what he thinks of the fact that for 11 months I let him go on calling me Simon. Oh well the Simon alter ego is dead.
