Something I forgot to mention to readers is that I did an email interview with The North Star back in June, which you may find interesting.
The North Star calls itself “a forum for socialist renewal. Emphasizing discussion and debate, this project is partly inspired by the North Star Network, a Marxist group founded by Peter Camejo in the 1980s that integrated former members of the Socialist Workers Party, a Trotskyist group, and the Line of March, a Maoist one. Camejo believed that the future of radical politics in this country lay not with the existing three-letter left groups but elsewhere. Taking its name from Frederick Douglass’s first newspaper, the network sought to throw off the baggage of dogmatism and sectarianism plaguing Marxism, emphasizing the importance of open debate.”
There are quite a few interesting interviews, reviews and articles on the site.
