Compact, a New Magazine, Says It’s Here to Start a War on the Left and the Right

From a New York Times story by Jennifer Schuessler headlined “Two Religious Conservatives and a Marxist Walk Into a Journal”:

Plenty of small media start-ups these days believe they can deliver the final blow to the tottering neoliberal order. But Compact, a self-described “radical American journal” debuting this week, is taking an unusual cross-ideological approach to the task of challenging, as a note from its editors puts it, “the overclass that controls government, culture, and capital.”

“We’re here to start a two-front war on the left and the right,” Matthew Schmitz, one of the magazine’s editors, said in a recent interview with his partners, Sohrab Ahmari and Edwin Aponte.
