In an amusing note, during the New Left period of the late 1960s, the Liberated Guardian broke off from the quasi-Maoist journal, The Guardian, in New York City, on the ground that the latter functioned in the same way as any “bourgeois” periodical, with specialized editors, typists, copy-readers, business staff, etc. The Liberated Guardian was run by a “collective” in which, assertedly, every person performed every task without specialization. The same criticism, followed by the same solution, was applied by the women’s caucus which confiscated the property of the New Left weekly, Rat. Both periodicals, as one would expect, died a mercifully swift death.
