The first two parts of our mini-series covered some rather bleak aspects of living in a capitalist society: bosses will always put the pursuit of profit over workers, the state is far from neutral, and the system really does favor the interests of the wealthy over the working class. But we shouldn’t despair just yet! Part 3 is here to give us hope and point us toward a path out of the muck.
The discussion for our final session in this mini-series will be about class struggle and working-class political strategy. We will examine why class struggle creates power and political leverage, and how that leverage can help us win victories in all of our battles against all forms of oppression.

We hope to see you there!

Session 3: Capitalism and Class Struggle

The ABCs of Capitalism: Capitalism and Class Struggle

*If you don’t have a copy of the pamphlets, the lecture linked below is an adequate substitute.

Alternative reading

If you can’t get your hands on a copy of the pamphlet in time, this lecture by Vivek Chibber covers much of the same material and should adequately prepare you to take part in the discussion.
