Socialism and print culture

Here’s an interesting article from the July-August isssue of New Left Review relating the history of socialism to the history of print culture. It suggests, without quite stating it, that the decline of socialism is tied to the decline of print culture, and that by extension the future of socialism will be tied to a transformation of its vocabulary and its ideas in adaptation to the culture of new media. Hard to know what that means in practical terms!!
