Political Education Reading Group: Anarchism and Socialism

March 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Pol Ed Working Group in Animal Crossing Style

Rescheduled from February 23rd.

Miami DSA’s Political Education Working Group is excited to read on two subjects, anarchism and socialism, through the lens of Peter Kropotkin’s ‘The Conquest of Bread’ and, from the amazingly accessible piece by Jacobin and Verso contributors, ‘The ABCs of Socialism.’

Join us as we dive into the first chapter of ‘The Conquest of Bread’ to learn more about the defects of capitalism and why Kropotkin believed it thrived on maintaining poverty and scarcity, and how decentralized systems based on mutual aid and voluntary cooperation are imperative to human society. We will also read pages 1-45 of ‘The ABCs of Socialism’ to understand and debunk common misconceptions of socialism and learn how to present our analyses in simple, approachable language.

You can find both texts at the links below.

Message us if you plan on attending, and we’ll send you the location. A call-in number will also be available on request to those who can’t attend in person.
