Marxism 101 3:30PM – 5:30PM Mt. Pleasant Neighborhood Library Google Maps More Information: Facebook

Join us for our inaugural Marxism 101 course. Unlike our Socialism 101 events, this session will focus specifically on the philosophy of Karl Marx and both its historical and current implications.

Marx was predominantly a theorist of how capitalism worked, not what a future socialist society may look like. In this intro to Marxism, which will strive to be light on jargon, we will focus on how Marxists view capitalism, how capitalist profit is rooted in the exploitation of labor, and how the class struggle is the result of this.
