The ABCs of Socialism Political Education Series, 11/16 🌹

Date

November 16
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Join comrades as we learn the ABCs of Socialism! Since the unexpected success of the Bernie Sanders campaign and the rise of a new socialist movement in the United States, the word “socialism” has come to intrigue, inspire, and incense millions of Americans. Many have become socialists themselves. Others are sympathetic to Bernie’s platform but harbor questions about socialism, like “Doesn’t socialism go against human nature?” “Isn’t America already kind of socialist?” And, “Doesn’t socialism always end up in dictatorship?”
 
We’ll be answering these questions and more in this six week “ABCs of Socialism” series. Reading excerpts for each week are provided, no need to buy a book. Classes will be held via Zoom. You do not need to be a member to attend these classes.
 
Here is our syllabus. Please make your best effort to complete all reading and media assignments before each class. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_TICUlGGoorgaRy6gbcg-YW6qrEYosDaH-u3yeXlyZ4/edit?usp=sharing
