Are you curious about the “S” word? You’re not alone. A number of recent polls show that young people (18-30) are more positive about socialism than they are about capitalism. And, of course, voters under the age of 30 turned out in droves to back Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist, a few months ago. But what exactly is socialism? How do we get from here to there? And what role can student activists play?
Next week Tyler Zimmer, who teaches philosophy at Northeastern Illinois University, will give a short, accessible talk aimed at addressing these questions. A period for Q&A and discussion will follow his brief presentation. Light refreshments will be provided. RSVP here. Don’t miss it!
