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.

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....

  • Q
    What is your view on the usage of the original hammer and sickle symbol, and is there anywhere I can find something such as a flag with the current official symbol?
  • A
    Thanks for your question, Ryan.  The imagery of the hammer and sickle (both the original and our modern hammer, sickle, and gear) are the subject of ongoing discussions in CPUSA.  As far as a flag with the CPUSA's current symbol goes, I'm not sure I can help you--but here are several responses to your broader question, to give you an idea of how our thinking is developing. "I think the older symbol has history and meaning for many.  I think at times this symbol has resonated with people focused on a time and circumstances we no longer live in. Not that I'm opposed to using this symbol, but I do think there needs to be an effort made to help...
