She has translated over thirty English-language musicals into Korean. I don’t know what her religious affiliation is, if any, but surely she is aware that a large percentage...

Bill of Rights Socialism

socialism in usa

Socialism is a common-sense path to a fairer, more prosperous and more democratic USA. Socialism is also a desperate necessity as capitalism and its unrelenting drive for profits threaten to make our planet uninhabitable. Working families in America – the 99% - between us create all the products and services that make our country the richest nation in the history of humankind. It doesn’t make sense that these collectively produced resources are owned and controlled by a tiny handful of billionaires. The fight for socialism is a dynamic process to fulfill the vision of a future of peace, justice and fairness for our nation and our world.

    Hello. I am an adolescent who is thinking about joining the CPUSA once I am at the legal voting age. My History teacher told me that in a Communist country, no one has individual rights. I asked her to give me specific examples of what rights I would not have...

    Hi Madeline, Thanks for writing in, and for a terrific question.  It really got me thinking! In our perspective, dissent, protest, disagreement and debate are a vital part of the democratic process--as vital, in fact, as arriving at and implementing a collective strategy. We don't see CPUSA as ruling a single-party state; instead, we hope to be one of many parties and organizations working together to build socialism. So, in a socialist USA, will people be allowed to say 'politically incorrect' things?  The short answer is that it depends on what kind of things, and where.  I doubt a government based on our vision of Bill of Rights socialism will be handing out fines to people who use the term...

What's the difference between socialists and communists when it comes to understanding issues of race and identity? Did the CP "take advantage" of the race issue opportunistically? Or did it have a deeper appreciation of what was inherent in Marxism? Marx for example rejected anti-Irish prejudice among the British working class claiming there would never be a revolution unless they rid themselves of anti-Irish prejudice. "No nation can be fee so long as it oppresses others nations" he wrote. In Capitol he struck a similar theme when discussing slavery in the U.S. "Labor in the white skin cannot be free...

  Washington, D.C. --- In a tremendous show of unity, under a sea of Puerto Rican flags being waved high, thousands of Puerto Ricans and their supporters joined in the Unity March for Puerto Rico in the nation’s capital November 19 to demand justice for Puerto Rico. Demonstrators from across the northeast, Ohio, and as far as Chicago raised their voices in unison to demand the U.S. fully fund the relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which tore through the island more than two months ago. Most of the island is still without basic needs, electricity, and potable...

A high point of the Denver Colorado May Day club's meetings each month is studying Marxist theory.  So are updates on the several issues we’re active in.  Yet the club’s most important work happens outside our meetings as we support working-class issues both on and off the street. Currently we're active in two low-wage workers’ campaigns—for thousands of airline kitchen workers nationwide and for 20,000 home care workers throughout the state.  Great numbers of Colorado teachers, including some of our members, are active in the struggle for fair pay and respect for educators.  We support their increasing public actions logistically and...
