LV Magazine February
or: Previous Issues

A new administration has taken over the White House, but the economic, social, political and health crises continue. The new issue of our magazine, which appears on the first Sunday of every month, attempts to analyze the current situation in the United States. In a piece translated from our sister magazine RP Dimanche, we debate with Andreas Malm and his concept of “Ecological Leninism.” We also debate with different left currents in Iran and India, looking at the history of both countries and applying the theory-program of permanent revolution. Finally, in our first stab at “aspirational fiction,” a teacher from West Virginia in 2031 looks back at the socialist revolution in the United States.

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.

A Socialist Take on the Women’s March Convention

In mid August over 1,700 activists attended the Women’s March Convention in Houston Texas. While the participants were driven by rage at the status quo, the non-profit and corporate leaders of the Women’s March offered only a failed strategy of voting for the Democrats and supporting “progressive” capitalists.
