Bernie Socialist Workshop
The History of Socialism in America
from Robert Owens’ utopian experiment in 1825
to Bernie’s political revolution of 2016.

A slide presentation by Eugene Ruyle,
Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, Cal State, Long Beach

As a democratic socialist, Bernie Sanders is leading a political revolution to transform a political system run by the billionaire class into one that represents working and middle class Americans and creates more opportunity for everyone. This workshop will take a closer look at Bernie’s socialism by placing it within the global context of two centuries of struggle against the capitalist system. This will allow a better understanding of how Bernie has adapted socialism to the United States in the Twenty First Century
