This chapter argues that much of the emergent culture of twenty-first century or “millennial” U.S. socialism, from Jacobin magazine to Chapo Trap House, articulates a political sensibility whose significance lies in its performative disambiguation of leftism from American liberalism. Marx and Marxism function in this culture as a means for a new generation of leftists to differentiate themselves and their politics from mainstream U.S. liberalism, even if the policy prescriptions they advocate often appear more social–democratic than radically socialist. Much of this emerging culture also serves as a means of political education, teaching its adherents about the wider global history of the left in media, technological, and cultural environments that makes possible new forms of counter-hegemonic practice.
