You can’t keep a good idea down. As much as pundits try to declare Marxism dead, it’s coming back again. Why? Because it is the best way to understand the mayhem of a world governed by an unrelenting drive to profit, and it is a roadmap to fight for a better world. We know that if we let capitalism run its course, it will lead to ruin. The only alternative is to take back the immense wealth accumulated by a tiny minority at the expense of the majority, and use it to democratically serve human needs.
We call that alternative socialism. Join us for a discussion of the problems we face today and the sort of movement we need to solve them.
