Online reading group: We need socialist organization

September 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

The capitalist system breeds a cruel world of racism, sexism, exploitation and climate chaos. These problems lead many to question the system and start thinking about alternatives. But, as Antonio Gramsci said, “ideas can’t live without organization.” The corporations, the capitalist state, the right wing are all organized. They are constantly learning and honing their methods. Our side needs organization too. To go from understanding the system to challenging it we need socialist organization. Join this discussion of the why, what, how and when of socialist organizing.
