Is there anything sassy about Stalinism?

12:00pm Sunday 2 September

About this session

Stalinist politics are unfortunately experiencing a minor comeback, via a combination of adulation for brutal dictators like Assad, conspiracy theories, online meme culture, and the discrediting of neoliberal identity politics.

But Stalinism has nothing to recommend it for genuinely left wing people. This session will discuss the real Marxist tradition and why Stalinism is such an abomination to anyone who dreams of a liberated society.
