Hey Spartacist Youth Clubs! Enough with the Exclamation Points!

January 20, 2011 at 12:10 am (Uncategorized)

I know I shouldn’t, but I can’t resist.

The new issue of Spartacist Canada showed up in my mail box the other day containing all the usual nonsense. No surprises there, but I happened to read the article entitled “Join the Spartacus Youth Clubs!”

90% of the article falls under the heading “What We Fight For,” and every single sentence ends with an exclamation point. Sample: “Look to the example of the heroic, Bolshevik -led workers of 1917 Russia!”  Leaving aside the general awkwardness of that sentence, does it really need an exclamation point?

Does it make the article seem more important? Does it make the Spartacus Youth Club seem more important?

The answer to both is no.
