Today, millions of people are looking for a way forward. The crisis of capitalism is showing that this system is at a dead end. COVID-19 has exposed all the flaws in an exploitative system that has long since ceased to be progressive.
But without understanding the world we can't hope to change it. Marxist education, reading, and studying theory is therefore of fundamental importance.
For anybody who wants to get stuck into a serious study of Marxist ideas, we’re pleased to announce the launch of the new education section of our website.
The website has been redesigned to be a one-stop shop for Marxist theory, structured to help those who are new to Marxism in educating themselves.
You can find out more about some of the amazing new features of our online education section below.
But of course, an education in Marxism isn’t just an academic one. So join us to help apply these ideas in practice and change the world!
Hub for Marxist education
Our new landing page and directory has been redesigned to be clear and easily navigable. It directs you on to different topic pages, covering all aspects of Marxist theory. It also features our podcasts and Youtube channel for high-quality, accessible theoretical content.
From our main education hub, you will find links to 19 different topic pages, including 3 new topics: religion; racism; and workers’ control. See here for an example: our page on historical materialism.
Each topic page contains introductory articles and in-depth long reads, as well as a collection of classic Marxist texts, audio & video talks.
Recommended reading list
Our newly organised reading list should have everything that a budding new Marxist needs to kick off their reading, all structured to guide your education in these revolutionary ideas.
The new list – arranged in the order we would recommend reading them – also contains links to all the key texts, along with useful reading guides where applicable.
All of our reading guides for classic Marxist texts are now easily accessible online.
Videos and podcasts
Not only do all of the topic pages have a featured audio/video section, but for those who prefer or find it easier to listen to a podcast, we have also created a series of featured playlists on our landing page. From here, you can also find links to our Marxist Voice podcast and Youtube channel.
So there’s no need to worry about hibernation and lockdown this winter. Get stuck into theory today, and delve into the incredible world of Marxist ideas! Educate, agitate, organise – and join us in the struggle for socialism!
