Sunday Morning at the Marxist LibraryAdded to the calendar on Monday May 30th, 2016 8:47 AM
The History of Socialism in America
from Robert Owens’ utopian experiment in 1825
to Bernie’s political revolution of 2016.
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.
A PowerPoint presentation by Eugene Ruyle,
Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, Cal State, Long Beach.

About Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library
A weekly discussion series inspired by our respect for the work of Karl Marx and our belief that his work will remain as important for the class struggles of the future as they have been for the past.
