LV Magazine November

Two days before the U.S. elections, we are proud to present the Left Voice Magazine. Over the last five years, we have published five issues of a printed magazine. Today we are introducing a digital format. On the first Sunday of every month, we will publish a new issue with a handful of in-depth articles.

As the capitalist crisis intensifies, we want to offer profound reflections about the problems of socialism. As Lenin said, “Without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement.”

We are publishing this first digital issue in a moment of multiple crises: the mass uprisings against police brutality are not over, but the Democratic Party is channeling the movement into the supposedly “democratic” institutions of U.S. capitalism. We are arguing for the political independence of the working class, and examining different strategies in the fight for socialism, with a particular emphasis on the legacy of Leon Trotsky.

This new online magazine is a similar format to the magazines published by our sister sites, including Ideas de Izquierda (Argentina), Ideias de Esquerda (Brazil), Ideas Socialistas (Chile), Ideas de Izquierda MX (Mexico), Ideas de Izquierda VE (Venezuela), RP Dimanche (France).

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.
