Capitalism is a death cult.

It is destroying the environment, hurling us towards climate catastrophe. It is responsible for the pandemic and the millions of deaths around the world. Capitalism makes profits by exploiting billions of workers around the world. It relies on the oppression of Black people, other people of color, immigrants, queer folks and women. It organized all of society around the profits of a few instead of the needs of the vast majority. And it forces the vast majority of us to spend all day in alienating and joyless labor.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. It is possible to fight capitalism and win. It is possible to overthrow capitalism and create socialism. In this introductory reading group, we invite folks who are interested in revolutionary socialism to come discuss the works of Karl Marx, Rosa Luxemburg, Alexandra Kollontai, CLR James and more.

This isn’t just a theoretical reading group. These readings are a plan to change the world. In that spirit, the space is welcoming to folks with little to no experience with Marxism or with theoretical texts, but who hope to learn, discuss and share experiences.

Meetings will initially be held virtually, and will likely transition to in-person in New York City in the future.

Don’t Vote Uncommitted — Commit to Breaking with the Democrats

Tapping into deep anger with President Biden, the left wing of the Democratic Party is urging Michigan voters to vote “uncommitted” in the primary election. But this strategy funnels progressives’ energy back into the Democratic party when we need political independence from the parties supporting the genocide in Gaza.

The Organic Crisis in 2024: This Year’s Election Is a Battle for the Hearts and Minds of U.S. Workers

The battle between Trump and Biden is being shaped by a crisis of the political regime, requiring the intervention of both the judiciary and the union bureaucracy. The battle for the presidency is a battle for the working class and a battle over which approach to imperialism is best for competing with China and reestablishing US hegemony. As usual, the Democrats are taking up the cudgel of democratic rights in order to rally disaffected voters.

Attacks on the Pro-Palestine Movement Are Attacks on the Right to Protest

As the movement for Palestine against Israel’s brutal military invasion of Gaza and attacks on the West Bank continues at a lower intensity than last fall, the State is cracking down on the leaderships of the movement and rolling back gains made by the Black Lives Matter uprising of 2020. The movement must grow in order to fight back against repression and protect our democratic right to protest.

The United States Is Trapped in the Middle East

As a result of Israel’s offensive on Gaza, the United States is again becoming deeply entrenched in the Middle East. This is a humiliating blow to President Biden, who promised to reassert U.S. imperialism by moving away from direct involvement in the region.
