The Measures Taken

En podcast av: Stephan, Jason, Matthew, and Nathan
The Measures Taken is a project to survey and reconstruct the history of Marxism from the development of mass Social Democracy to our own moment. Recognizing that Bolshevism has lapsed as a living political tendency, those of us who remain committed to revolutionary communist politics and convinced by the Marxist critique of political economy are left searching for a past capable of orienting us in the present
The Measures Taken is a project to survey and reconstruct the history of Marxism from the development of mass Social Democracy to our own moment. Recognizing that Bolshevism has lapsed as a living political tendency, those of us who remain committed to revolutionary communist politics and convinced by the Marxist critique of political economy are left searching for a past capable of orienting us in the present. Mindful of the threat of eclecticism and all too cognizant of the infelicities of sectarianism, the hosts of this podcast embrace a non-denominational Marxism. Our purpose is self-education, never the display of expertise. We hope that our listeners extend to us the same principled courtesy we do our forebears: not to judge too harshly.themeasurestaken.orgmeasurestakenpod@gmail.com
