Join BuxMont DSA for the first session of a revamped Political Education program! We plan to host virtual socialist education sessions weekly on Mondays at 7:00pm. Each session will include a live reading of a relatively short, accessible article or other piece of media that encourages us to think strategically about the challenges socialists face in our struggle to build a better world. Because we read articles aloud together, interspersed with open discussion, no homework is necessary!
For our first session, we will read Spectre Journal’s symposium on The Left After Bernie, in which social reproduction theorist Tithi Bhattacharya interviews Jacobin staff writer Meagan Day, DSA National Political Committee member Justin Charles, and Spectre editor Charlie Post about how to historicize the Left’s current position, how socialists should or should not relate to and act within the Democratic Party, and how to understand either a distinction or identity between building a mass voting base and a mass social movement 🌹
