From Pat Deveney's database:
Social Revolutionist, The.
This was a radical socialist journal that functioned as one of the leading organs of the "Sex Radicals" of the time. It was published by the Rising Star Association of Darke County, Ohio, a radical exponent of Individual Sovereignty that is better known from the location of its second home, Berlin Heights, Ohio, where Thomas L. and Mary Nichols had already moved their radical community. The journal bought the mailing list of Nichols' Monthly, a similarly inclined journal that was foundering as the Nichols were converting to Catholicism, and began explicitly to preach free love. The result was predictable: the issue for November 1857 was burned by a mob, and the journal expired two months later. John Humphrey Noyes quotes C.M. Overton, the editor of The Social Revolutionist, on what he saw as the necessary connection between spiritualism and free love:
There are elements of spiritualism in the journal, and A.J. Davis contributed to it. Columbia University microfilm; Yale University; University of Minnesota; Bowling Green State University; Western Reserve Historical Society; Texas Tech University; University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
