“Not me, us” is the slogan of Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential run. On the campaign trail, Bernie has consistently emphasized that he alone can’t transform society — that in order to end the stranglehold of the billionaire class over society, millions of working-class Americans must get involved in the political process.
Why does Bernie insist on the need for a mass movement to change society? What is Bernie’s campaign doing to build that movement? What would a working-class movement need to be like in order to enact fundamental change, and what should socialists do to grow that movement? What should we do if and when Bernie wins — or loses?
Join East Bay DSA’s Socialist Night School on Tuesday, February 4 to discuss these questions and others, in the third of a special four-part series on Bernie Sanders, capitalism, and democratic socialism.
