I walked into work today, thinking that it would be just like any other day. I was wrong. Today was the day that I discovered Far Left Buffy , a Facebook page dedicated to providing ‘A left wing interpretation of Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘. Before I leave to join the revolution, here are a few things I learnt:

1. When you think about it, Comrade Summers engaged in a lot of revolutionary activity throughout the show

2. The role of the Slayer illustrates the value of unpaid labour

3. Giles embraced capitalism, but only to sow the seeds of revolution

4. Anya was ostensibly introduced to appease capitalists

5. Once More With Feeling is the greatest symbolism of communism in Buffy

6. In any reading of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Giles is still the font of all knowledge

7. But, Angel may be a men’s rights activist…

The signs were there.

8. And finally, Buffy the Vampire Slayer definitely needed more hats
