Revolutionary Horizons and the Role of Theory

An Interview with Sam Salour of the Marxist Education Project

Every week, Sam Salour sits down (on Zoom) with a couple dozen other intrepid readers, and works through Marxist texts, each member of the week’s gathering reading a few lines at a time, out loud. It’s a slow way to get through Capital, but one can really get a handle on concepts like commodity fetishism or primitive accumulation if you have the patience and dedication to talk it out over two months in a context where no question is too basic. It is indeed Sam’s patience, careful explanations, and guidance that carry these reading groups forward. Upping the Anti’s Sharmeen Khan — herself an attendee of these reading groups — sat down with Sam to talk about the project, and more importantly, the role and place of theory in radical movement work.
