• Ep. 89: Four Open-Letter Authors Speak Truth to Historical Materialism

    The co-hosts are joined by four authors who have recently written open letters to Historical Materialism: Gabriel Donnelly, Ralph Keller, Seth Morris, and Vann Seawell. They explain why they have urged the journal to retract a paper, on Marx’s value theory, that is laden with misrepresentations and other falsehoods, and they criticize Historical Materialism’s refusal to retract the paper as well as its indifference to whether the content it publishes is true or false. They also detail specific misrepresentations and inaccuracies in the paper and discuss the political implications of fighting for pro-truth politics against Historical Materialism’s “both sides” posture.

    Plus current-event segment: the continuing “F-word” controversy. On Jacobin author Daniel Bessner’s recent dismissal of the term “fascism” and Jonathan Chait’s revelation of Bessner’s underlying “Left-First” agenda.
