If you own a bike under communism, is it your bike?

In this episode, The Specter’s Susie Davtyan talks with Rick Nagin, a longtime CPUSA member, leader, and organizer in the Ohio district. Reform and revolution; personal property and private property; class struggle and racial justice; democratic socialism, socialist democracy, and communism: Susie and Rick break it down.  Think of it as “Communism 101.”

    Susie is a 23 year old graduate from The Evergreen State College who now works in IT in Cleveland, Ohio. As a new member, Susie quickly took initiative in joining the local club in Cleveland, attending the Conference Against Male Supremacy and Misogyny, and was a key member in organizing the 2018 National Marxist School. Susie’s vision is to create more shareable content for CPUSA in the hopes of connecting more young people along with creating space to talk about the issues that are plaguing this nation and its youth.
