Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

The only way forward is abolitionist, socialist and feminist.


If you're ever given something, know that what you've got wasn't power - that always entails a struggle. What I'm asking for is White people to become participant in a revolutionary struggle. And their location afterwards will be different. And the what humanity feels like, and what decency feels like, what justice feels like - will be different. But you can't be scared that you might not like it.

Writer Zillah Eisenstein explains why the mounting crises we face - of capitalism, of racism, of misogyny - cannot be reformed individually, but must be understood and fought with a revolutionary rethinking of our values, the power structures around us, and the world we want to win, together.

Zillah is author of Abolitionist Socialist Feminism: Radicalizing the Next Revolution from Monthly Review Press.
