Why starting your little magazine is planting the seeds of your own little utopia.
“Here is what we do have: young talent, lots of ideas, a sense of political commitment, and a lot of well-written articles. We also have the clumsiness of larger magazines, which can often serve as fodder for our own purposes. But our real advantage comes from being on the margin, from being outside the market. By remaining outside the mainstream, we can offer opinions—criticisms, arguments, complaints—that are just left of the possible. We can make the case for those alternatives that many politicians and magazines believe implausible.”
