LV Magazine January
or: Previous Issues

As a new year begins, we present the third issue of our online magazine, which appears on the first Sunday of every month. This issue is dedicated to theoretical and strategic debates. The first three articles — translated from our sister magazine Ideas de Izquierda — polemicize in different ways with “postcapitalist” thinkers who believe that technology alone will liberate humanity. This issue closes with a critique of the “rank-and-file” strategy popularized by Kim Moody.

We are making the contents of this magazine freely available all at once. Yet we still need support to build up a revolutionary socialist publication. If you enjoy this magazine, please consider donating $5, $10, or whatever you can. You can make a contribution via Paypal or Patreon.

In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the United States and European Union have imposed unprecedented sanctions on the Putin regime. These measures are severely damaging the Russian economy. They are also disrupting international markets in energy and other commodities. Such large-scale use of the “economic weapon” risks further fragmenting the world economy.

Angry About High Fuel and Food Prices? Blame Imperialism
