Much More of This’d Bust Our Buttons!

(July 1942)

Readers of Labor Action Take the Floor ..., Labor Action, Vol. 6 No. 29, 20 July 1932, p. 2.
Transcribed & marked up by Einde O’ Callaghan for the Encyclopaedia of Trotskyism On-Line (ETOL).

Dear Editor:

That was a swell editorial, How Long Will This War Last?, in your July 6 issue. Simply written, realistic, and – alas! – entirely true. The kind of truth that needs public statement these days. Congratulations.


Dwight Macdonald

P.S. – While I’m handing out bouquets, may I add that Labor Action has become, in the last year, the best popular paper I’ve seen in the American leftwing movement up to now.

New York, July 9
