“Now over the months as a The New Republic editor, I’ve noticed this one word, frankly, standing out more. It’s come to feel slightly confessional—like a sort of poised admission: We know there’s not an especially overwhelming immediate consumer demand for our thing, what with the weird course it plots for itself, as a popular yet serious magazine, between entertainment and detached selection. But we believe in it. And we believe in it not just as an idea but as an institution—as something that can be meaningful and generative to people in their day-to-day lives. In 2018, the main experimental ambiguity for the The New Republic we have in mind—the central frankly—turns on whether there’s an audience for a liberal magazine that cares about more than shoring up liberal resistance to the regressive monstrosity that’s trying to pass itself off by way of manipulative nostalgia as conservatism. It turns too, and more broadly, on whether there’s an audience for a liberal magazine that wants to rethink American liberalism with us—on the premise that democracy can’t thrive merely on victory.”
–J.J. Gould, editor of The New Republic, in an Editor’s Note, June 21, 2018.
