  2. The Election of Donald Trump: The Insurrection of the Oligarchy (print)

    The Election of Donald Trump: The Insurrection of the Oligarchy (print)

    The eruption of mass opposition to US President Trump is an event of enormous importance. It poses the question of the program and leadership that will guide the mass social anger at the militaristic and socially reactionary policies of this administration.

    Trump is the true face of the capitalist oligarchy. The coming to power of his administration is not an aberration in an otherwise peaceful and democratic society, but the outcome of decades of social cuts, growing inequality and unending war, under both Democrats and Republicans.

    The series of articles in this pamphlet outline the political foundations for understanding the origin of Trump's victory and advance a socialist strategy for the working class, the only social force that can defeat the drive toward dictatorship and war.

  3. Science & Socialism

    Science & Socialism

    The progress of science and reason has always depended upon the progress of society and social relations. Capitalism is a social system in which all human activity, including science, is subordinated to private profit. Technology has been used, not to feed the world's population, but to develop ever more destructive weapons of war.

    The Trump administration has threatened funding to all US agencies that have contributed to the advancement of scientific understanding, while increasing the military budget by $54 billion.

  4. Marxism by V.I. Lenin

    Marxism by V.I. Lenin

    Excellent summary by V.I. Lenin of the historical, philosophical and economic foundations of Marxism. Lenin wrote "The Three Sources and Three Component Parts of Marxism" as a tribute marking the thirtieth anniversary of Marx's death. This short work has become one of the best known introductions to the complex theories of Marxism, precisely explaining how Marx "continued and consummated" classical German philosophy, English political economy and French socialism and revolutionary doctrine. Lenin introduces the reader to the most essential concepts of Marxism an "integral and harmonious" scientific theory based on a dialectical and historical materialist understanding of society and the development of social knowledge. He then provides a brief exposition of Marx's development of the labor theory of value, the theory of the class struggle, and Marx's unique and most significant contribution to political economy, the theory of surplus value.

  5. 1818 - 2018 The Bicentenary of Marx's birth, socialism and the resurgence of the international class struggle

    1818 - 2018 The Bicentenary of Marx's birth, socialism and the resurgence of the international class struggle

    2018 marks the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx, the founder of scientific socialism and author of Das Kapital. World Socialist Web Site International Editorial Board Chairman David North argues that far from being outmoded, Marx's teachings have burning relevance for today. The historical experiences of the twentieth century - the Russian Revolution of 1917, the rise of Stalinism, and victory of fascism in Germany in 1933 - have demonstrated, as Trotsky emphasized, that the greatest challenge to mankind is the resolution of the crisis of revolutionary leadership.

    The statement "Final reflections on the centennial year of the Russian Revolution" notes the worried tones of bourgeois commentators on the precarious state of world capitalism, and the danger that the October Revolution remains a beacon to the working class all over the world.

  6. Organizing Resistance to Internet Censorship

    Organizing Resistance to Internet Censorship

    Led by the United States, all of the imperialist powers are preparing for world war. Social inequality and wealth concentration have reached unsustainable levels. The capitalist ruling elites, deeply discredited and beset by internal political conflicts, are turning toward authoritarian forms of rule. Everywhere, the ruling class is terrified of the growth of social opposition in the working class.

    It is this fear that underlies the coordinated campaign to censor and control the Internet, under the guise of combating “fake news.” The US government, in collaboration with Google, Facebook, Twitter and other corporations, is implementing massive restrictions on Internet access. In 2017, the Trump administration announced its decision to abolish net neutrality, giving powerful information technology monopolies a stranglehold over the flow of information online.

    The World Socialist Web Site has taken the lead in exposing this conspiracy to censor the Internet. This pamphlet includes some of the main articles and statements from the WSWS on this campaign.

  7. Socialism and the Defense of Public Education

    Socialism and the Defense of Public Education

    The mounting struggles by US teachers, including the statewide strike by West Virginia Teachers in February 2018, poses basic questions of political strategy.

    What and who are teachers fighting against? What is the role of the Democratic Party? What is the character of the trade unions? How can teachers secure their basic rights, and how can the working class as a whole ensure the basic right to public education for everyone?

    Includes an on-the-spot report from Puerto Rico, where the Governor is using the devastation of Hurricane Maria to close public schools and privatize remaining ones.

  8. The Struggle Against Imperialism and for Workers' Power in Iran

    The Struggle Against Imperialism and for Workers' Power in Iran

    This pamphlet addresses pivotal issues of socialist strategy in a country that for decades has been a target of US imperialist intrigue and aggression, and where the working class, as heralded by the protests that opened 2018, is now striving to find the road of independent class struggle. Based on an examination of Iran’s history and the global struggle against imperialism, the pamphlet demonstrates that a viable strategy to defeat imperialism can only be founded on the working class, and requires its mobilization as an independent political force in opposition to all factions of the bourgeoisie.

  9. Mass Shootings

    The Social and Political Roots of Mass Shootings in America

    The question of mass violence in American society has evoked a powerful reaction among student youth, who have responded to the shooting deaths of 17 people at Stoneman Douglass High School in Parkland, Florida by organizing nationwide protests. Unending wars, police murders, massive social inequality, a surveillance state and an unresponsive political system has had a deep impact on broad layers of the population. Rejecting simplistic answers such as calls for tighter gun control, millions of young people are seeking to come to grips with the roots of the diseased state of American society. This collection of articles from the World Socialist Web Site make the case that the root cause of mass violence in America lies in the capitalist system and the nightmarish world that it has created. Spanning a period of nearly two decades, the essays in this pamphlet provide penetrating insight into present situation and offer a program to fight.

  10. The CIA Democrats

    The CIA Democrats

    The CIA Democrats contains a detailed exposure of the effective takeover of the 2018 Democratic Party congressional campaign by candidates drawn from the ranks of former intelligence agents, special forces operatives, veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and civilian national security operatives from the State Department, National Security Council and Pentagon.

    The CIA Democrats analyzes the connection between the unprecedented influx of candidates with a military-intelligence background and drastic shift in the Democratic Party to the right, expressed in its efforts to promote the anti-Russian campaign, attacking the Trump administration from the right on foreign policy, and demanding a more confrontational approach toward Moscow in the Middle East, Central Asia and Eastern Europe.

    The pamphlet includes the three-part series published by the World Socialist Web Site March 7-9, 2018 and a subsequent perspective commenting on the historical implications of the CIA takeover of the Democratic Party, as well as a chart detailing the more than 50 former military-intelligence operatives now seeking Democratic congressional nominations in contested districts.
