The Case for Socialism

NYC Tour with Alan Maass, author of The Case for Socialism and editor of Socialist Worker

April 27-30 (exact locations and dates below)

We live in a world of poverty, war, and environmental devastation. A world where living standards for working people plummet while an elite few enjoy lives of unbelievable wealth and power.  Something different—an alternative to capitalism—is desperately needed.

But what should replace it?

This forum will make the case for socialism. A society built from the bottom up through the struggles of ordinary people against exploitation, oppression, and injustice—one in which people come before profit. A society based on the principles of equality, democracy, and freedom.

More about the book:

“The Case for Socialism,” by SocialistWorker.org editor Alan Maass, proposes socialism. A society built from the bottom up through the struggles of ordinary people against exploitation, oppression, and injustice—one in which people come before profit. A society based on the principles of equality, democracy, and freedom.

“Is socialism an impossible, discredited dream or the only realistic path for human survival? If you’re not sure of the answer, or are just curious about what the left really believes in, you need to read Maass. He’s the Tom Paine of the contemporary American left.”
— Mike Davis, author of “Planet of Slums”

“This is a vivid, fluent, and rare book about socialism for those uninterested in tracts and excited by new prospects.”
— John Pilger, author of “Freedom Next Time: Resisting the Empire”
