Socialism: Reform or Revolution – a public discussion

Socialism: Reform or Revolution
Young and working class people today are increasingly rejecting capitalism. And ever since the Bernie Sanders campaign, millions are turning to the idea of socialism as an alternative. The notion that we need a socialist society based on the needs of the many rather than the profits of the few is seemingly common sense. But how does socialism work, and what do we have to do to achieve it? Can we elect socialists to office to build socialism on our behalf? Join us for a discussion on why socialism has to come from below – through the mass organization of ordinary people – and what we can do to turn ideas into action.
This talk is part of the Socialism Tour 2018, bringing experienced activists and thinkers to cities across the country in the lead-up to this year’s Socialism Conference in Chicago. Register for the conference today! https://socialismconference.org/
