This chapter examines the career of Victor Considerant as a journalist and lecturer. It explains that though Considerant was forced to bankruptcy in the 1840s, this period proved to be a marvellous decade for him. To find new sources of financial support for his movement, Considerant and his colleagues created an elaborate organization and the cornerstone of it was the socialist newspaper La Démocratie Pacifique. During this decade, Considerant lectured widely on Fourierism, published numerous popularizations of Charles Fourier's thought, and participated in a host of fundraising activities. He also continued to run for public office.

Keywords:   Victor Considerant, journalist, lecturer, bankruptcy, La Démocratie Pacifique, socialist newspaper, Fourierism, Charles Fourier
