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.

Going public as CPUSA members can help build mainstream acceptance of our party and its goals, but it comes with some risks--even now, when public support for socialism is on the rise. Most of us are careful about how and when we tell people about our membership. Here's some advice from members and organizers throughout the country. Bernard Sampson, TX: We aren't like other parties. We are a party dedicated to the overthrow of the capitalist class in this country.  The propaganda against us is not the same as it is for others, and so reactions...

  While government is commonly viewed as institution standing above society Marxism has traditionally seen it as an arena of class and democratic struggle. What has remained the same and what has changed in this regard? Marx saw the necessity of making a distinction between property rights and human rights. Is this still valid? Lenin, basing himself on the experience of the Paris Commune, called for "smashing the state" and establishing a new form of workers government. What does Marxism have to say about the growth of the state into many aspects of modern life with internet being a prime...

  China is huge and diverse country with a long complex history undergoing enormous changes in a short span of time. Just a bit of context: The people’s revolution took place in 1949 with the declared aim to build socialism. The initial model was patterned after the Soviet Union’s centralized economy - total public ownership and wage leveling and collectivization of agriculture. But it was largely a failure and a new path of development was charted beginning in 1978 that went against Marxist orthodoxy. The reforms ushered in the socialist market economy and “opening up” to the global economy. It...
