What Is Socialism & What Good Is It?
Socialism takes many forms and all of them do better than capitalism in meeting the basic human needs of humanity. Our scientific analysis will stand as a critique of the shoddy scholarship and biased methodology of books like The Black Book of Communism and provide a more realistic view. We will focus on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, which provides a viable alternative to global capitalism, and Bernie-Style socialism, which is popular among youth in the United States but which has yet to understand its historic mission.
Speaker will be Eugene E Ruyle, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, CSU Long Beach, currently with ICSS in Oakland. Gene will discuss his forthcoming book, Socialism for Americans: A Scientific Introduction to the Global Struggle for Socialism.
