This growth is occurring as Bernie Sanders has withdrawn from the 2020 presidential race. People are fighting mad—and with good...

Showing an interactive map in real time, Rodríguez explained that “the United States practically approaches one million cases, 955 thousand 362 cases in total”, of which 30 thousand 130 infections have been registered in the last...

A few years back, the controversial late Italian communist philosopher Domenico Losurdo argued (in Lenin Reloaded)  that the central cause of the split between the 2nd International and the 3rd International lay not precisely with the issue of reform versus revolution. Instead, Losurdo argued, 2nd International adherence to a white supremacist imaginary about “barbaric” denizens of the...

In honor of Lenin’s 150th birthday this week and the recent end of Bernie Sanders’ democratic socialist presidential campaign, I began to think of how these two phenomena are connected. Sanders’ campaign united young workers and students alike around key issues such as universal health care, climate change, and free college tuition.
