The Socialist Education Project

Socialist education is important for both strengthening the movement and building greater connection and cooperation, and informing effective action.

The Socialist Education Project of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism will sponsor online discussion and resources and in-person programs.  It will produce literature, visual aids and cultural products of value to help create a socialism that both draws upon its history and is relevant to building a twenty-first century socialism.

Everyone is invited to participate!

A drawing of young Karl Marx

Why a Marxist School?

Karl Marx’s ideas are a common touchstone for many people working for change.  His historical materialism, his many contributions to political economy and class analysis, all continue to serve his core values–the self-emancipation of the working class and a vision of a classless society.  There are naturally many trends in Marxism that have developed over the years, and new ones are on the rise today.  All of them and others who want to see this project succeed are welcome here.

The First 100 Days

The Trump Presidency: strategies and assessment from the left and socialist perspective.  An SEP hosted Webex conversation series Feb – July 2017

CCDS expects a right wing assault on the progressive majority during the first months of the Trump presidency, and a racist attack on immigrants, Muslims and people of color seems likely.  As the political dynamics are new, it is hard to know exactly what will happen; but black/white unity will be key to strong working class and progressive response.  We will need to evaluate the situation as it develops to strategize for defense of the vulnerable and plan for taking the initiative.  Dialogue among socialists will inform a more effective response and build power.
