From Social Democracy to World War

In his NYT op-ed, Jacobin’s Bhaskar Sunkara makes a key omission– ignoring the important experience of workers’ democracy created by the soviets and the Left Opposition’s struggle against Stalinism, led by Leon Trotsky.

Socialism’s Future Can’t Be Its Failures

The DSA in the Democratic Party Labyrinth

Left Voice’s second issue, “Women on the Front Lines”, is now available for purchase. For every magazine sold, we are donating $1 to a worker controlled factory in Argentina. “When you going to stop selling us out?” Days after police officer Darren Wilson gunned down Michael Brown in August 2014, activists cornered Rev. Jesse Jackson at a McDonald’s in Ferguson. Turning from the urgings of old leaders (to “register to vote,” write their representatives, support progressive Democrats), radical youth instead drove a movement of mass demonstrations, blocked highways, die-ins, commercial disruption, and riots–all during the first Black president’s second term.
