Knowledge, ideology, and real socialism in our times
I have initiated a regular editorial column on Substack, “Knowledge, ideology, and real socialism in our times.” It will consist of twice-weekly commentaries on US and world affairs, written from a Marxist-Leninist-Fidelist perspective, based in experience in Socialist Cuba.
My commentaries are posted on Tuesdays and Fridays, at 10:00 AM (Eastern time), beginning Tuesday, April 6.
You can subscribe to the column ($5 per month or $40 per year) on the Substack Website. A subscription entitles you to access to all the commentaries, with notice of each posting by email and twitter. And it enables you to send your reactions, commentaries, and questions. You also have the option of being a Founding Member for $100, which includes the additional benefit of a free PDF version of my 2018 book, The Evolution and Significance of the Cuban Revolution.
The subscription model has emerged in recent years to challenge the long-dominant ad-supported model, as a result of changes in the communication industry provoked by the Internet. The subscription model enables writers who do not fit into any of the prevailing ideological and intellectual trends in the United States to receive compensation for intellectual work, based on the support of loyal readers.
I am among those who have difficulty finding a home among the prevailing ideological and intellectual trends, inasmuch as I am Marxist-Leninist-Fidelist, socialist, Catholic (although lax in practicing), and traditional conservative, all woven together in a comprehensive and coherent way, as will be seen in the column.
