    """As one of the reporters who helped expose the Iran-Contra scandal for The Associated Press in the mid-1980s, I was distressed by the silliness and propaganda that had come to pervade American journalism. I feared, too, that the decline of the U.S. press foreshadowed disasters that would come when journalists failed to alert the public about impending dangers. Also by 1995, documents were emerging that put the history of the 1980s in a new and more troubling light. Yet, there were fewer and fewer media outlets interested in that history. The memories of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush were enveloped in warm-and-fuzzy myths that represented another kind of danger: false history that could lead to mistaken political judgments in the future."""

HISTORY — Monthly Review began publication in New York City in May 1949. The first issue featured the lead article “Why Socialism?” by Albert Einstein. From the beginning, Monthly Review spoke for a critical but spirited socialism, independent of any political organization. In an era of Cold War repression, the magazine published pioneering analyses of political economy, imperialism, and Third World struggles, drawing on the rich legacy of Marxist thought without being bound to any narrow view or party line. The McCarthy-led inquisition targeted MR‘s original editors, Paul Sweezy and Leo Huberman, who fought back successfully. Against these odds, the magazine’s readership and influence grew steadily, and in 1952, Monthly Review Press published its first title, I. F. Stone’s Hidden History of the Korean War. In the subsequent 1960s upsurge against capitalism, imperialism, and inequality, MR played a global role. A generation of activists received no small part of their education as subscribers to the magazine and readers of Monthly Review Press books. In the decades since, with the rise of neoliberalism and successive capitalist crises, MR has kept its commitment both to radical critique and to the building of a just economy and society. [...] TODAY — Under the current editorial committee, led by John Bellamy Foster, the magazine continues its long tradition of analyzing what is new together with the equally vital task of seeing the longer process. That tradition, as summarized by Paul Sweezy, is to see “the present as history.” In 2006, MR began a daily web magazine, MRzine, which in 2017 was migrated to a new project, MR Online, a forum for collaboration and communication between radical activists, writers, and scholars around the world.

    Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research is an international, movement-driven institution focused on stimulating intellectual debate that serves people’s aspirations. [...] In January 1966, the Cuban people hosted the Tricontinental, a conference of revolutionary movements from Africa, Asia and Latin America (Primera Conferencia de Solidaridad de Los Pueblos de Africa, Asia, America Latina). This conference emerged from two dynamics.
    * States that emerged out of the anti-colonial movement had, by 1961, created the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), which included not only radical regimes but also those with a more conciliatory attitude towards imperialism.
    * Outside NAM existed movements with unfinished anti-colonial wars of national liberation which had a more radical edge to them and which had been gathered together in 1957 in the Afro-Asian People’s Solidarity Organisation (AAPSO).
The NAM and AAPSO platforms often collaborated together. They provided the cultural space from which the Tricontinental would emerge.

Counterfire is a socialist organisation committed to building the biggest possible movements against a system that is creating more and more crisis and misery.  
Whether or not we get real change depends on wider struggles in society, it depends on mass movements, popular protests and on workers taking action. We believe that this kind of popular opposition requires a dynamic extra-parliamentary left, rooted in workplaces, communities and colleges. 
We also believe that these struggles are connected. Racism, sexism and all oppressions are a product of a society based on the exploitation of workpeople by a tiny minority of capitalists. War, climate change and inequality are all symptoms of a chaotic system based on competition for profits.    
In the process of helping to build resistance, Counterfire puts the case for a revolutionary socialism that ultimately seeks popular control of society and genuine liberation for all.

The Hampton Institute (HI) is a proletarian (working class) think tank that was founded in 2013. In contrast to traditional think tanks, we are a virtual organization that does not have a physical location and does not seek to provide specific policy analysis for political parties. For organizational purposes, our official location is in Albany, New York with a mailing address in Clifton Park, New York. Our chairpersons are located throughout the United States (including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Ohio, Arkansas, Colorado, Texas, Oregon, Hawaii, and California), as well as in Canada (Montreal) and Australia. Our contributors are located all over the world, including South Korea, Japan, Palestine, Syria, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, South Africa, UK, Spain, Germany, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Brazil, and Iceland, among other places. 
The HI was founded by Colin Jenkins, a socialist, with the purpose of giving a platform to everyday, working-class people to theorize, comment, analyze, and discuss matters that exist outside the confines of their daily lives, yet greatly impact them on a daily basis. We are named as a tribute to former Black Panther Party member and revolutionary martyr, Fred Hampton, and also take inspiration from Italian Marxist theorist, Antonio Gramsci, and educator and philosopher, Paulo Freire.  
We exist to fill the historical void that Gramsci once termed, "Organic Intellectualism" – the collective politicization and critical analysis of and from the working class itself. We are indifferent to traditional structures dominated by the pedigreed and privileged intelligentsia. Our members are passionate and probing members of the commons who believe that intelligent analysis exists throughout the socioeconomic spectrum, and the only thing that separates those who own a public voice and those who do not is varying degrees of privilege. Thus, credentials earned and given through dominant society are often nothing more than products of privilege; and for that reason alone, perspectives and analyses coming from these credentials/privilege are often presented in a way that opposes the public-at-large (the working class). We seek to challenge this embedded, highly controlled, and top-down mode of inquiry by offering an alternative, organic, and bottom-up viewpoint.
We seek to build class consciousness. We seek to end oppressive systems like capitalism, white supremacy, and patriarchy. We seek the liberation of all.  
All power to the people.

People’s World is a voice for progressive change and socialism in the United States. It provides news and analysis of, by, and for the labor and democratic movements to our readers across the country and around the world. With a small but dedicated staff, freelance contributors, and a nationwide network of volunteer writers, People’s World presents insights into local, national, and international struggles from the perspectives of those who are experiencing them. It’s an angle you won’t find in the corporate press.
People’s World traces its lineage to the Daily Worker newspaper, founded by communists, socialists, union members, and other activists in Chicago in 1924. On the front page of its first edition, the paper declared that “big business interests, bankers, merchant princes, landlords, and other profiteers” should fear the Daily Worker. It pledged to “raise the standards of struggle against the few who rob and plunder the many.”
The publication has gone through a number of nameplates and mastheads over the years, but that same tradition of fighting, working-class journalism continues.
Today, People’s World offers a daily news platform for the broad labor-led people’s movement—a voice for workers, the unemployed, people of color, immigrants, women, youth, seniors, LGBTQ people, cultural workers, students, and people with disabilities.
People’s World continues to feature Marxist analysis and opinion developed by the Communist Party as well as voices from other currents of the labor and people’s movements.
For almost a century, People’s World and its predecessor publications have taken the side of the 99 percent and worked to promote the struggle for a sustainable environment, jobs, democracy, peace, and equality.

Just like the Socialist Workers Party publishes Socialist Worker and the Socialist Party in England and Wales publishes The Socialist?
Actually, no. Both the SWP and SPEW consider themselves to be the already existing proto-party. Most of the other groups think of themselves in the same way. Because, they believe, they will provide the core of the future mass party, their task is to outpace their rivals and make them irrelevant. Sooner or later, the masses will be won to the one true line and accept the SWP, SPEW (or whatever) as the working class party.
Naturally their papers reflect this sectarianism. Pick up a copy of Socialist Worker or The Socialist and you will only very rarely find even a mention of their main rival. You will never find recognition of papers like the Weekly Worker. All the other groups are, by and large, regarded as distractions - better to pretend they do not really exist than give them undeserved publicity.
We take the diametrically opposite point of view. There is no proto-party, and the main task facing the working class movement is to construct one in the here and now. Week in, week out, the Weekly Worker hammers home this message - in order for our class to make any kind of advance, let alone become the ruling class, it needs a single, united Marxist party.

The ANSWER Coalition demonstration of 200,000 people on October 26, 2002, in Washington, D.C. ignited a nationwide and global antiwar movement that was nearly unprecedented in history. On January 18, 2003, 500,000 people packed the Mall in Washington, D.C. under the slogan “Stop the War Before It Starts.” The Washington Post described the January 18 demonstration as the largest antiwar protest since the end of the Vietnam War.

ANSWER has mobilized against the illegal coup and UN occupation of Haiti, against the illegal blockade of Cuba, and the illegal 'regime change' war on Libya.
We are actively fighting against the ongoing occupation of Afghanistan, the renewed assaults on Iraq and Syria, the drone attacks on Yemen, Pakistan and Somalia, among others.

Socialist Appeal is a Marxist organisation which stands for the socialist transformation of society. Get in touch today and join us in the fight for revolution.
 Socialist Appeal is the Marxist tendency in Britain. Marxism has a long history within the labour movement, providing a class analysis of events.
Reformists look to patch up capitalism. They want a nicer, kinder capitalism. But this is impossible. Capitalism is crumbling, experiencing the deepest of all crises. It cannot be reformed.
Marxists, in contrast, believe that the problems of the working class can only be resolved by the overthrow of capitalism. We therefore stand for the socialist transformation of society - in Britain and internationally.
As Marxists, we stand for the ideas of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Trotsky. These ideas provide us with an understanding of capitalism, and of the strategy needed to fight for world socialist revolution. That is why theory is vital - as the key to understanding the past, present and future.
As internationalists, we work with activists from the International Marxist Tendency, in order to fight for these ideas on a world scale.
We are facing revolutionary crises across the planet. The consciousness of the working class is being radically transformed.
The difference between reformism and Marxism can be seen as the difference between foresight over astonishment. We can see the massive class struggles ahead, in which the task of transforming society along socialist lines will be posed.
In Britain, the immediate task facing us is the building of a powerful Marxist tendency that can intervene in these struggles - in the mass movements of workers and youth. We must create a leadership that is prepared to go all the way, to the end.
This will not happen by itself. Every worker, student, unemployed person – young and old – must get involved in this fight to change society. Don’t stand on the sidelines – your help is needed!

Labor Notes is a media and organizing project that has been the voice of union activists who want to put the movement back in the labor movement since 1979.
Through our magazine, website, books, conferences, and workshops, we promote organizing, aggressive strategies to fight concessions, alliances with worker centers, and unions that are run by their members.
Labor Notes is also a network of rank-and-file members, local union leaders, and labor activists who know the labor movement is worth fighting for. We encourage connections between workers in different unions, worker centers, communities, industries, and countries to strengthen the movement—from the bottom up.
That movement is needed because workers are being hit hard by their employers. We have lower real wages, less job security, and smaller, weaker unions than our mothers and fathers did.
For the most part, our leaders are doing a poor job of navigating us through the crisis. Some can’t get beyond business-as-usual; others see the need to organize by the millions, but don't believe that workers themselves need to have a say in their unions. Some unions operate only to service their members’ bread and butter needs instead of encouraging their involvement in a movement to fight the employer offensive and transform our society.
With 40 years of movement building behind us, Labor Notes exists as a resource for leaders and union members who want to combat these trends and chart a new course for the labor movement.
------
What We Do: The magazine
Labor Notes is best known for our monthly magazine of the same name. We report news about workers that the mainstream media doesn't find worth printing—from workers’ point of view. We explore the trends that are keeping workers on the defensive and analyze labor’s responses: what’s working and what’s not? And as an independent publication, we’re free to include the voices who say we could be doing better—and tell how.
In Labor Notes, you'll find reports on inventive organizing tactics and contract campaigns. You’ll read coverage of the people who are working to kick some life into their unions and put their fellow workers in the driver’s seat. You'll read sometimes shocking stories of workers’ struggles abroad, and inspiring stories of solidarity.

"""
Tribune was established in 1937 as a socialist magazine that would give voice to the popular front campaigns against the rising tide of fascism in Europe. For eighty years it has been at the heart of left-wing politics in Britain, counting giants of the labour movement like Aneurin Bevan and Michael Foot among its former editors.
Over the decades Tribune has campaigned for socialist ideals inside and outside parliament. It championed the cause of the Spanish Republic abroad and the National Health Service at home. Tribunite Jennie Lee wrote in its pages about the need to democratise culture, before going on to found the Open University as a pioneering Minister for the Arts.
Barbara Castle was a columnist for many years, arguing for legal recognition of women’s equality before introducing the Equal Pay Act in 1970. Tribune also contributed to the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, offering its pages to Albert Luthuli of the ANC as early as 1961, and to the fight against colonialism, with Jawaharlal Nehru making the case for Indian independence as far back as 1938.
In culture, too, Tribune blazed a trail, with George Orwell spending many years as literary editor, and writers from Upton Sinclair to HG Wells, Doris Lessing, George Bernard Shaw, and Seán O’Casey finding a home in its pages.
Tribune was relaunched as a print magazine and website with the support of Jacobin in 2018, and its new team is committed to reviving this great tradition on the British left. Our mission remains, as Michael Foot wrote on the magazine’s 21st birthday, “to sustain the old cause with the old weapons.”

(!) 2022/03: shit-takes regarding Russia-Ukraine
[!] but, a lot of content to sieve, check sources ... periphery→core essay-prone intellectuals? ???
--------------
"""
The anarchist Mikhail Bakunin—both a political rival of Marx in the First International and translator of the first Russian edition of Capital, Vol. I—once mocked the intellectualism of his Marxist opponents by quipping “we have too many ideas and not enough action”.
Today the situation seems to be the opposite. Direct action after direct action, dedicated leftists put their bodies on the line without anything resembling a convincing vision of a better world. This is no one individual’s failure, but an inevitable result of the collapse of working-class power and socialist politics in the late 20th century. Communism—the vision of humanity emancipated from class society—is generally disregarded as a fantasy, or even as undesirable in principle. At best it is the silent God of a negative theology, a desperate mantra of abstract negation with no plausible hope to be found in the existing tendencies of capitalist society. Consigned by post-structuralism and marginalist economics to an obsolete micro-niche in humanities departments, academic marxism—even on the rare occasion it can genuinely help us understand the world—is as detached from the goal of classless society on paper as it is in reality. A leftist politics this disoriented is about as likely to achieve basic democratic reforms as it is to implement a world socialist republic.
Scientific socialism
To orient ourselves in a direction towards universal human emancipation, we must rebuild the approach of scientific socialism. While the term ‘scientific socialism’ has historically become synonymous with Soviet state ideology—and if the name Lysenko rings any bells, the most rankly opportunistic pseudoscience—we believe that it is a concept worth upholding. Peddling ideological snake oil to a desperate public does nothing to change the world and advance humanity. Abstract ideals about the way things ought to be do not suffice when the agents of capital—the capitalists, their state, their ideologues—use all scientific means at their disposal. Marx and Engels created scientific socialism to argue for a socialism based in reason—a socialism with a rigorous analysis of both existing material conditions and history, with an eye towards how to use the best of humanity’s capacities to transform the world. They developed their ideas through critique and deliberation with the socialists of their time who had internalized capitalist ideology or failed to make their visions politically possible. In this process, Marx and Engels developed not only a Marxist political strategy, but also a materialist conception of history that—if used properly—is a weapon for the proletariat in its struggle for communism.  
Platform of debate
Therefore it is necessary for Marxists of all backgrounds and skills to develop intellectual institutions independent of academia, wherein communists can develop their vision, strategy, and overall critique of capitalist society. Cosmonaut aims to be one of (what should be) many different platforms of debate, where scientific socialists can develop an analysis of history, critique the prevailing ideological “common sense” of our time, and conceive a programmatic communist politics relevant to our circumstance.
Marxist polemics
Because no one genius will figure out all the answers to the questions facing revolutionaries, we must understand that knowledge is a collective process of debate and deliberation. So while we aim to stand as close as possible to the programmatic communist commitments of Marx and Engels, we reject an approach that divines the definitive ‘red thread’ tradition as an abstract set of principles to follow and evangelize. We seek to develop a Marxism for the 21st century which will be based on a scientific inquiry of history and present conditions through a process of collective discussion and debate, not dogma based on fidelity to what this or that Great Man said so many years ago. Our organizing principles are internationalism over all standing armies and borders; building class-independent, democratic institutions; and a vision of a future where the world is a classless community of humanity, finally free of exploitation and oppression—communism.

Principled. Progressive. The Nation speaks truth to power to build a more just society.
Home to tenacious muckraking, provocative commentary, and spirited debate about politics and culture, The Nation empowers readers to fight for justice and equality for all. By providing a deeper understanding of the world as it is—and as it could be—we drive bold ideas into the conversation and ignite debates far beyond our pages.
We believe in intellectual freedom. We value facts and transparency. We argue that dissent is patriotic and we hold the powerful to account, no matter their political persuasion. We raise up the promise of a radical tomorrow while we agitate for meaningful change today. Above all, we aspire to galvanize a more informed public—one equipped with a more profound understanding of events, ideas, and history.
Founded by abolitionists in 1865, we’ve long believed that independent journalism has the capacity to bring about a more democratic and equitable world. Our writers shift paradigms and open minds. Our deep investigative reporting launches congressional hearings, forces policy change, and shapes news cycles.

    LeftEast is a place where various voices, efforts and groups from around the region, broadly understood, come together in a sustained analytical and political effort. This is a platform where our common struggles and political commitments come together beyond the national borders or the straightjacket of national languages. Therefore, this platform is a political act. Ideologically, it is explicitly left-wing in orientation, that is, left of the classical social democracy. Nonetheless, it aims to remain largely inclusive and open, accommodating enough strands of the contemporary left without losing the critical edge and while maintaining a dynamic environment for intellectual conversations.
    This is not an academic platform. Neither is it simply a news agency for the lefties about the region. It seeks to offer a mixture of theoretically – and analytically – informed contributions about current matters, local but not parochial, seeking to engage audiences beyond the national publics and beyond the academic circles. It aims to inform, illuminate and mobilize.
    The aim is to constitute an alternative to the way we see the region but also to the type of intellectual production historically associated to this part of the world. Therefore, the platform seeks to publish not only regular analytical productions, but also interviews, reportages, conference reports, travelogues, cultural commentaries, videos and so on. Ideally these contributions should be originals as much as possible, but of course there is no limit to texts already published elsewhere as long as those who propose the texts manage to secure proper approval. Most of the texts published elsewhere first appear under the Insert section.
    Largely, LeftEast has primarily a technical function: gathering of quality texts, providing the necessary editorial support, making them available to the public. We do not claim the role of a politically directive organ. Nevertheless, authors should self-consciously adhere to the minimal and implicit set of rules of the website (ideological consistency, quality of writing, informed theoretical contributions and commentary, meaningfulness and anti-parochialism among the most important). We reserve the right to decline texts that don’t conform to them. Alternatively, if there are issues to be addressed, the LeftEast editorial collective will raise the matter with the author(s) of the texts or with the people who suggested them. In either case, however, the final decision for publication rests entirely with LeftEast.
