Internationalism against Imperialism

If impe­ri­al­ism today is irre­ducible to any sin­gle phe­nom­e­non, then this is because it appears at once both ubiq­ui­tous and dis­persed. How then to account today for the his­to­ry that has ampli­fied impe­ri­al­ism while mak­ing it all the more dif­fi­cult to define?

Making Waves (Part 1)

If we want to speak of a work­ing-class par­ty, we need to begin from the work­ing class as it exists, not as we would like it to be. Yet what con­sid­ers itself a blue­print will not and can­not con­cern itself pri­mar­i­ly with a con­crete analy­sis of class com­po­si­tion. The orga­ni­za­tion­al ques­tions it can address are only those posed from above, while those raised from below go unac­knowl­edged.

It once was com­mon prac­tice for rad­i­cal jour­nals to solic­it feed­back from their read­ers. It anchored the­o­ret­i­cal devel­op­ments and point­ed to new areas of inquiry. As View­point expands its work, we hope our read­ers can help us revive the prac­tice here.
