 From an interminable article in the Nation 
(http://www.thenation.com/article/179337/what-was-socialism)

"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
