Thurs, 3/8, "Education Meeting: 'Marxism & the Party'"

7pm, Haymarket People's Fund, 42 Seaverns Ave, Jamaica Plain (map)

Author John Molyneux examines the contributions of several Marxist revolutionaries to the development of socialist organization. How should the Party relate to the broader movement or working class? What kind of democracy or centralism do we want within the Party? These questions, and more, will be taken up – all with an emphasis on practical, real world application for today.

Discussion Questions to Consider:
1) What are some of the distinctions between the views on organization put forward by Marx, Lenin, and Luxemburg?
2) What is the role of revolutionaries in the years prior to a revolutionary situation?
3) What is the importance of organizing in a separate revolutionary organization?
