The Personal Dimension
The hard work CD and its contributors have done over five decades exploring the personal dimension has been as important as any revolution or specific issue covered by the magazine. The traditional neglect of the personal dimension came at a significant cost for the Left. People are not just ideas and beliefs — they are embodied experiences and feelings too, and those can be difficult to sort out, understand and change.
