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.

The Movement for Palestine Needs Independent, Working-Class Politics

As the brutal genocide of Palestinians continues with the help of the Biden administration, there is maneuver underway to co-opt the movement for Palestine. We need to have a democratic and independent movement that relies on the power of the working class, the student movement, and mobilizations in the streets.

The Convulsive Interregnum of the International Situation

The capitalist world is in a "permacrisis" — a prolonged period of instability which may lead to catastrophic events. The ongoing struggles for hegemony could lead to open military conflicts.

“Poor Things” Floats Like a Butterfly and Stings Like a Butterfly

Poor Things is a fantastical comedy with beautiful set design and costumes and an Oscar-winning performance from Emma Stone. So why did it leave me feeling so empty? Despite juggling feminist and socialist ideas, the film is ideologically muddled and often self-contradictory.
