Talking Socialism – Tom Gallagher – Sunday, October 10, 2021 10:30 AM PT

What does Lenin say on Marx’s Works and on Socialism? – Group Discussion – October 17, 2021 10:30 AM Pacific time

What does Lenin say on Marx's Works and on Socialism So, what does Lenin take from Marx's vast works and summarize it succinctly? And specifically on Socialism. Some of us thought that last week's discussion on socialism did not deal aqequately with Lenin's scientific concept, so we invited Raj Sahai to lead a Group Discusion on this important topic. Raj will be joined by Gary Hicks and Eugene Ruyle to begin our open discussion. In preparation, folks are invited to read V. I.
