“Understanding Capitalism” is a forty-page text explaining clearly why capitalism isn’t just a collection of individuals, but individuals grouped in social classes with very different interests. Capitalists aren’t necessarily “greedy,” but motivated by market pressures and those pressures create enormous wealth but also great misery for the majority. Because of the nature of the system workers can only advance if they act collectively.

You don’t have to do anything in advance of this event; just show up, and we’ll have copies of the text available to read and discuss from, and if you wish, to purchase to keep.
