The theoretical struggle is a key component of the class struggle. Without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement. Capitalism is facing the deepest crisis in its history. The ruling class can offer no real way forward for the vast majority of people.
The In Defence of Marxism magazine – produced by the International Marxist Tendency – is a tool and a weapon for revolutionary class fighters all over the world, offering serious Marxist analysis on theoretical questions and burning issues of the labour movement.
We must answer the dominant ideas of the bourgeois and the reformists, and cut through the distortions about the ideas of Marxism. The aim of this magazine is to allow our supporters – especially those new to Marxism – to do this.
The Spring 2023 issue of In Defence of Marxism deals with a range of questions, from artificial intelligence to the writings of James Joyce.

The featured article in this issue deals with the question of the origins of women’s oppression, which as Marxists argue is rooted in the rise of class society. Understanding where women’s oppression comes from is essential for those who wish to understand how to end it.
Also featured in this magazine is an article dealing with the reactionary ideas of Thomas Robert Malthus, who argued that poverty is a result of overpopulation. The basis of this idea – that there are too few resources to support humanity – persists to this day, with arguments around ‘degrowth’ and the climate crisis.
