The magazine's described missions are "to produce the world's first readable political publication and to make life joyful again".[5] Its format is influenced by magazines such as Jacobin and Spy.[6] The print edition features colorful cartoons and full-page illustrations by various artists who are prominently credited for their work. Public figures such as Noam Chomsky and Glenn Greenwald have praised the magazine.[7]

Essays in Current Affairs include critiques and history of popular culture,[8][9][10] discussions of policy and its implementation,[11][12] and proposals for solutions to societal problems.[13][14] The magazine has also published long deconstructions of works by popular writers such as Charles Murray,[15] Tucker Carlson,[16] Jordan Peterson,[17] Sam Harris,[18] and Steven Pinker.[19]
