This ignored the cultural and political aspects that had motivated many who had supported the formation of socialist states. Unfortunately, La Revue Marxiste was as short-lived as its predecessor. Pierre Morhange was said to have gambled away money donated by Friedmann to finance the Revue, although there may also have been some involvement by the Communist Party to quash this independent and alternative voice of Marxism.
