Democratic socialism: Can it work?

10:00am Sunday 2 September

About this session

The idea of democratic socialism has made a resurgence since Bernie Sanders inspired millions with his talk of a political revolution. Yet is it really possible to achieve socialism through parliamentary means? Though the “socialism” of countries like Sweden would be a substantial advance on the bitter realities of capitalism in most countries on earth, it is far from perfect.

This session will examine the politics of democratic socialism, and make the case for a revolutionary alternative.
