Socialists Don’t Really Believe What They Say (Continued)

Nathan J. Robinson (author of Why You Should Be a Socialist) is editor of the socialist magazine, Current Affairs.  According to a letter from former employees posted on Twitter, Robinson fired most of the magazine’s staff on Aug. 8 when they asked for more worker involvement. 

The former staffers quoted what they said was internal communication from Robinson that said, “I think I should be on top of the org chart, with everyone else selected by me and reporting to me.” According to the open letter, “Yes, we were fired by the editor-in-chief of a socialist magazine for trying to start a worker co-op.”

Robinson has not commented publicly.
