 From an interminable article in the Nation 

"a contingent of young journalists speaking through venues both new and 
old, all of them based in New York City—Jacobin, n+1, Dissent and 
occasionally this magazine, among others—have begun to make careers as 
Marxist intellectuals."


"a revolutionary career does not lead to banquets and honorary titles, 
interesting research and professorial wages. It leads to misery, 
disgrace, ingratitude, prison and a voyage into the unknown, illuminated 
by only an almost superhuman belief."

--Max Horkheimer
