The best political journal in America just redesigned its website and opened up their archives to the public. Even if you don't subscribe you can read 5 articles for free, and pretty much everything they've ever published is worth reading.

If you're completely unfamiliar, here are a few articles to try to start you off:

The Baffler is a white person magazine. Much like The New Yorker, it serves as a status symbol for other whites to congratulatory pat themselves on the back with how intellectual and moral they are.

Sarcasm is the primary mode of white leftist discourse.

I love sarcasm! Good thing I'm a white leftist, huh? Man, I'm going to fit right in. And if I read The Baffler, all have all sorts of interesting anecdotes at cocktail parties!

i read that first article of your 3, but i stopped reading pretty quick when he tried to claim that empiricism and a belief in the elusive/subjective nature of truth/reality are contradictory

I think you misread that. He was contrasting the Enlightenment ideal of science as a search for objective reality with the postmodern idea of subjective viewpoints literally creating reality.

Or it's just a journal with some interesting things to read.

Judging everything through the lens of socialization is no way to go through life.
