Marxism and democracy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The terms "democracy" and "democratic rights" are so abused and twisted by the media to justify the undemocratic capitalist system that some on the left underestimate their importance. But the Marxist tradition, starting with Marx, insisted that the fight to defend and extend democratic rights is an important part of the struggle for a new world. We socialists are the most determined and consistent defenders of democracy.
