This issue begins our 50th year of publishing a radical journal with a demolition of the theories of Marx. Plans are currently under discussion for a celebration in Detroit later in the year. We’ll keep you informed in subsequent issues and on our social media as a program develops and a date is set.

We should all be proud to have kept this magazine going with its unique voice of revolution when so many others have unfortunately fallen by the wayside. And, the “we” here includes not just the people who have produced it over the past half century, but those of you who are readers and supporters as well.

The future for this publication seems as bright as it has in a long time as movements of resistance and contestation continue to grow. And, our circulation expands even though print media is routinely pronounced as a curio from another era.

From its origins in 1965, the staff has always practiced engaged journalism, and will continue to be part of a grand refusal of submission, and at the same time hold up a vision of a different world not dominated by the state and capital.

Thanks to all who have made this anniversary possible.

COVER: Mabel Norman, in “A Noise from the Deep,” 1913
