The Platypus Review

Latest Issue: #147

GERMAN REUNIFICATION WAS A TIME of general decline for all organizations to the Left of the German Social Democratic Party (SPD).
THE LAUNCH OF Sublation Magazine is a response to the current moment of disorientation and depoliticization on the Left. Amid the support from “progressive” legislators such as “the squad” for the sclerotic Biden administration, the Left has nothing left to say on the latter’s catalogue of disasters.
On March 19, 2019, Platypus Affiliated Society member Daniel Rudin interviewed Nathan Quimpo, a long-time political activist in the Philippines before his academic career, in which he is a semi-retired adjunct professor of political science and international relations at the University of Tsukuba and Hosei University in Japan. An edited transcript follows.
IF WE WANT TO DISCUSS CHINA, the first thing we need to note is that the present regime is a reactionary police state. It is not a “deformed workers’ state” that preserves some of the achievements of the revolution. It is the product of a counter-revolution that occurred in October 1976, a month after Mao’s death.
THE COVID POLICIES OF FEAR, with their divide-and-conquer strategy, may have been the first shot in the latest effort at creating the centralized global economy that the Left has been protesting since the Bretton Woods Conference of 1944 in New Hampshire.

Editorial Statement

Taking stock of the universe of positions and goals that constitutes leftist politics today, we are left with the disquieting suspicion that a deep commonality underlies the apparent variety: What exists today is built upon the desiccated remains of what was once possible
