Why I read the WSWS

9 March 2013

This remarkable collection of letters enumerates the intellectual, political, and cultural contributions of WSWS and movingly describes the impact these have had on our individual lives. Taken as a whole the letters also reveal something more: a diverse but united international community that’s in the process of learning how genuine socialism can be built. WSWS has given us both a vision of the goal and a plan of practical steps that avoid the mistakes of the past and will enable us to achieve it. A powerful momentum of revolution is building in the world, and the WSWS community is developing the knowledge necessary to lead that struggle to success. Reading these letters shows us what the word “comrade” really means. It’s great to be one of you!

2019 has been a year of mass social upheaval. We need you to help the WSWS and ICFI make 2020 the year of international socialist revival. We must expand our work and our influence in the international working class. If you agree, donate today. Thank you.
