Introduction to Marxism Discussion Groups

“Philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it.”
Karl Marx

If you’re interested in left wing politics and want to know more about the fundamentals of Marxism and the politics of Socialist Alternative, this is the place to be.

Socialist Alternative hosts a series of discussions for left wing people to learn about the Marxist critique of capitalism, and about the socialist project to change the world.

Every week we discuss one of these topics:

  • What’s wrong with capitalism?
  • The working class and trade unions
  • Socialism and revolution
  • The capitalist state and how it works
  • Imperialism
  • Oppression
  • The Russian Revolution
  • Why we need a socialist organisation
  • Stalinism and the defeat of the Russian Revolution
  • Fighting sexism in everyday life
