Review: “To The Promised Land,” King’s fight for economic justice

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.

  The 20th General Assembly of the World Federation of Democratic Youth took place December 2–6, 2019. The location in Cyprus was selected based on the ability of EDON (the young communist league of AKEL) on the island to host such an event. Cyprus gained its independence from Britain in 1960 and experienced an invasion and occupation by Turkey of the northern half of the island which began in 1974 and continues to this day. We were unable to fly into the capital city of Nicosia due to the unlawful and unrecognized control of the Nicosia airport by the Turkish...

    Hi Braden, Before I get to your allegations of censorship, I want to clear up a couple of misconceptions. First, we do not seek to rule a single-party state.  Socialism in the United States will almost certainly involve multiple parties, sharing a basic vision of society even though they differ on how to best implement those principles (just as most Democrats and Republicans basically agree on capitalism).  Second, socialism doesn't mean that everyone makes the same amount of money.  It means that the working class, which includes everyone from fast food workers to doctors and engineers, will receive the full value that its labor produces. Since we'll no longer have to hand over half of the value we produce to...
