No progressive change has ever come without mass struggle. From the 8-hour-day to the end of legal segregation, the demands of oppressed people who organized in the streets and in their workplaces forced the state to react. Reforms like these improve people’s lives, and the process of fighting for them increases the working class’s political consciousness and confidence.
But as long as society is dominated from top to bottom by the wealthy 1%, our advances can be rolled back. We need a revolution, a mass upheaval that replaces capitalism with a system based on human need. But what would that look like and is it really possible?
Join the Seattle branch of the International Socialist Organization for a public forum on revolutionary change.
