This meeting is hosted by Liverpool Marxist Society.
Capitalism is in a period of deep malaise on a world scale. As Marx foresaw, the once progressive pursuit of profit now holds society back. The economy stumbles from one disaster to another, bringing war and revolution in its wake.
In such turbulent times as these the ideas of Karl Marx have been revived with many looking for answers to the current world crisis. This discussion will give an introduction to the ideas of Marxism and their relevance in a society more divided than ever before.
Our second meeting of the academic year will have Rob Sewell, editor of Socialist Appeal (www.socialist.net), speaking and he will introduce a discussion on this subject and the urgent necessity of a radical break with capitalism.
Everyone is welcome to come along so get yourselves down, share the event widely and feel free to invite anyone who you feel may like to get involved.
