The global pandemic, impending economic collapse, and the survival of the earth itself at risk—with stakes this high, how do we focus our organizing? Can the course reversal we need be achieved through piecemeal reforms and voting in democratic socialists? Or will it take a complete transformation of the current capitalist system?
In this remote access-study group, we’ll discuss the current crisis and concrete steps toward moving humanity through it. Historic debates over the relationship between battling for vital social reforms and building a revolutionary movement for socialism as well as current readings will be discussed for ideas we can apply to today’s challenges.
In this sixth session, we will discuss taking the battle to the ballot box through a mock debate: the cases for and against stumping for Bernie (if he was still running), making do with Biden, or demanding an independent, anti-capitalist alternative.
