Central IN DSA "The Socialist Manifesto" by Bhaskar Sunkara Reading Group
With the stunning popularity of Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Americans are embracing the class politics of socialism. But what, exactly, is socialism? And what would a socialist system in America look like?
Drawing on history and his own experience in left-wing activism, Sunkara explains socialists can win better wages, health care, education, and housing, create democratic institutions in workplaces and communities - while ultimately reviving our country. A primer on socialism for the twenty-first century, this is a book for anyone seeking an end to the vast inequities on our age.
Available from Basic Books. Free E-book available to participants soon to come.
The first session of our The Socialist Manifesto series will be Thursday, October 15th, at 7pm and will run till 9pm EST, using Zoom. Please be prepared to discuss Chapter 1: "A Day in the Life of the Socialist Citizen." We'll then meet every two weeks after that, Thursdays, at 7pm, discussing a chapter at a time.
