Join the Syracuse radical reading circle for a public study group on how to understand–and defeat–the U.S. war machine.
We will be discussing the first part of "Imperialism in the 21st century," a book that revisits and updates the analysis of Russian Revolutionary V.I. Lenin, who showed how the monopoly stage of capitalism had produced imperialist wars, and only social revolution could bring them to an end. Two world wars of unimaginable destruction confirmed Lenin’s basic thesis and also led to a complete reorganization of world politics.
Through guided reading, discussion and presentations, join both beginners and experts to better understand Lenin’s theoretical work on Imperialism and how we can view today’s world events through that same scientific lens.
Joining us for this study group will be Richard Becker, the Western Region Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition and noted author. Richard will discuss the latest develops in the Middle East as they pertain to understanding the contemporary state of the global struggle against imperialism.
