While often perceived as radical in the US context - many of Bernie Sander's popular demands (e.g. Medicare-for-all, tuition-free public college) were realized under social democratic regimes decades ago. As socialists, how do we advance these demands while articulating a politics that goes beyond social democracy, and why do we do so?
Join the Political Education Committee for a beer to discuss these questions (and others!), framed by Ralph Miliband and Marcel Liebman’s 1985 chronicle of social democracy’s history of deficiencies – Beyond Social Democracy.
We will be hosting a Happy Hour at Boomtown Brewery from 7-9 pm, Wednesday, August 28th. We'll start with a discussion on the reading above, then give a brief introduction to our committee, current projects, and future goals. If it's been a while since your last PolEd Meeting, or if you've never been to one before, this event is for you! We hope to see you there.
