Jacobin began thirteen years ago yesterday.
Jacobin has now been in print for thirteen years. That means thirteen years of publishing with the goal of revealing the truth about capitalism — a system based on exploitation and the degradation of the human spirit — and thirteen years of offering a vision of a real alternative to it, socialism.
We’ve grown from an ugly website with only a few hundred visitors to the most popular English-language socialist publication in the world, with a beautiful print magazine that gets better with every issue.
But before we understood publishing, Jacobin had politics. We shared a desire to win a tiny, fragmented left back to fundamentals: a class-based analysis of the world; an acknowledgment that the Left’s task was to rebuild working-class organizations capable of capturing and transforming state power. But we also have a vision of a world after capitalism, one built from the wealth and abundance around us.
And while these ideas have grown less marginal over the years, there is still a lot of work to be done.
That’s why our goals remain the same, thirteen years on: to be a proud ambassador for socialist ideas, and to foster class consciousness and build the institutions that can tame and eventually overcome capital.
