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

By Eugene Ruyle, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology,
Cal State, Long Beach Institute for the Critical Study
of Society in Oakland

As a democratic socialist, Bernie Sanders began 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 working class struggle against capitalist rule. This will allow a better understanding of how Bernie has adapted socialism to the United States in the Twenty-First Century, and how to improve our struggles for a better world for all humanity. Now that Bernie is no longer a candidate, it’s up to us to continue the struggle.

Gene Ruyle is author of “Rethinking Marxist Anthropology,” and other essays. He is active with the Oscar Grant Committee, Veterans for Peace, and the Peace and Freedom Party.
