As a previous Litsy review suggests, Katch is a strong proponent of revolutionary Marxism. He made some powerful arguments in favor of revolution, but I still see value in gradualism and electing Socialist representatives to local government positions. Ultimately, I do believe in an alternative to unrestrained capitalism. Think you know about socialism? Think again!

This was a really informative introduction to socialism but read with a critical eye. The author's preference for a certain brand of socialism is clear so it's important to ask yourself what kind of post-capitalistic society do YOU envision.

Exploitation and oppression are partners. It's impossible to imagine the exploitation of African Americans through slavery and share cropping just as there is no way that women could be paid less than their male counterparts w/o a sexist framework that they should be expected to prioritize family.
