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.

Three decades ago, Vietnam embarked on what it calls a "renewal" process that brought rapid development after years of war, famine, and poverty. The ideological and economic approach of combining their socialist goals with a market system has seen many gains, but also brought new dangers. During a recent visit to Vietnam, People's World sat down with Bui The Giang, the Director General for Western Europe and North America Affairs for the Communist Party of Vietnam's Commission of External Relations. In the course of this in-depth talk, Giang discussed Vietnam's journey towards economic prosperity, its commitment to sticking to a...

In Engel’s address at the graveside of Karl Marx, he said “Marx discovered the law of development of human history: the simple fact, hitherto concealed by an overgrowth of ideology, that mankind must first of all eat, drink, have shelter and clothing, before it can pursue politics, science, art, religion, etc.” Another pertinent quote is that according to the labor theory of value, “all value comes from nature altered by human labor.” In the past, Marxists have focused on the labor part of that equation, noting that how human labor is organized, how production is organized, is the fundamental determinant...

The West Philadelphia club is right now starting 2017 by moving on three fronts: 1) Our own series of club educationals to keep our members up to date on issues that have been confronting the people of our community (as well as most communities, we believe). Our January educational was on the topic "Education that works". The matter of funding and supporting public education has been a "hot button and front burner" issue for some years in Philly as in other cities. Our presenter that night was a career psychiatrist with a long standing interest in education and child rearing....

    What is your view of the relationship between capitalism and mental health?  It seems like mental health problems are becoming more common in today's society.  Is this true, or do we just notice them more now?
  • A
    This is an excellent question!  I think there are lots of different forces to take into account.  First, with the Affordable Care Act, there is a significant increase the number of people with health insurance.  Additionally, one of the less famous provisions of the ACA is mental health parity.  While the enforcement is still variable, this means that a lot of people who previously had insurance, now have much more robust access to mental health services.  While there is still a major problem in the supply of services, many more people have had the opportunity to be evaluated and to enter treatment if needed.  Overall, this is a very positive development, but it does give the appearance that many more...
