The Spectre serves as a student-run publication which publishes material that will unite leftists on campus, and act as a platform to raise the diverse voices of Oberlin students and community members to address pressing political concerns and report on current affairs and culture in America and abroad.

To this end, we are a socialist publication. As socialists, we reject capitalism, a social order based on profit, alienated labor, inequalities of wealth and power, white supremacy, imperialism, heteropatriarchy, and the destruction of the environment. Instead, we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, feminism, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships between individuals.
