Stand up for socialism!

Author: 

Editorial

Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell and their close associates probably never expected to get where they’ve got now, where their words get the weight and attention due to the alternative government.

Many rank and file left-wing activists, too, have been surprised suddenly to find themselves in the centre of large left-wing meetings where ideas are discussed about changing the economy and society wholesale.

We can no more win socialism by individuals being active, each one on her or his own, than a workforce can win better wages and conditions by each worker complaining one by one.

An inspiring dialogue

Author: 

Jill Mountford

There is now a renewed interest in socialist ideas, an appetite to better understand how the world works and why it works in the interests of such a small minority. There’s a craving among a much bigger layer of people for ideas about what we do about the preposterous injustices of capitalism. These appetites and cravings need to be fed and satiated with ideas and arguments about what socialism is and importantly, what it is not (i.e. the 57 varities of the Stalinism of the twentieth century).

Sean Matgamna’s book, Can socialism make sense? An unfriendly dialogue, is, as he writes in the introduction, “a contribution to the urgent work of rebuilding a mass working class socialist consciousness, and perspective, and a movement that embodies and fights for them”.
