What does Lenin say on Marx’s Works and on Socialism @ Online
Oct 17 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Sunday at the Marxist Library (online) So, what does Lenin take from Marx’s vast works and summarize it succinctly? And specifically on Socialism. Some of us thought that last week’s discussion on socialism did not deal aqequately with Lenin’s scientific concept, so we invited Raj Sahai to lead a Group Discusion on this important topic. Raj will be joined by Gary Hicks and Eugene Ruyle to begin our open discussion. In preparation, folks are invited to read V. I. Lenin’s Karl Marx — a Brief Biographical Sketch with an Exposition … Continued

Rebecca Solnit in Conversation with Adam Hochschild on Her New Book Orwell's Roses @ 3rd Floor Loft of the McRoskey Mattress Co.
Sparked by her unexpected encounter with the surviving roses he planted in 1936, Solnit’s account of this understudied aspect of Orwell’s life explores his writing and his actions—from going deep into the coal mines of England, fighting in the Spanish Civil War, critiquing Stalin when much of the international left still supported him (and then critiquing that left), to his analysis of the relationship between lies and authoritarianism. Through Solnit’s celebrated ability to draw unexpected connections, readers encounter the photographer Tina Modotti’s roses and her Stalinism, Stalin’s obsession with forcing … Continued

Reading for 10/5 Next week we’ll kick off October by beginning what will hopefully end up being a complete reading over the coming months of a true classic: Raoul Vaneigem’s The Revolution of Everyday Life. One of the high water marks of Situationism, a profound influence on “second-wave”/type 3 anarchisms, and an under-acknowledged example of egoist thought, this is a reading I’m very stoked to discuss with all of you. Each and every page of this text gives us ample material to unpack, so for this first reading let’s go from … Continued

Oneof the country’s leading organizers and a co-creator of Black Lives Matter, Alicia Garza’s work has helped shape the discourse on activism and empowerment for more than a decade.

She wrote: Black people. I love you. I love us. Our lives matter. Long before #BlackLivesMatter became a rallying cry for this generation, Alicia spent the better part of two decades learning … Continued
