Class leaders: Kayla Pauli and Jamie Smedley
Join us Saturday, August 5th for our class on State And Revolution written by V.I. Lenin just a few months before the successful worker revolution in 1917 and published in 1918. Come to a discussion on what is the capitalist state, and why socialist revolution is the only solution to police brutality, prisons and the U.S. court system of justice for the rich and enslavement for the workers and oppressed.
Lenin notes that the capitalist state “is a power which arose from society but places itself above it and alienates itself more and more from it. What does this power mainly consist of? It consists of special bodies of armed men having prisons, etc., at their command.”
