LOOKING FOR VILLAINS EVERYWHERE BUT THE MIRROR
The revelations from hacked DNC e-mails didn't lose the election for the Democrats. Their neoliberal, pro-corporate, anti-worker policies did.

THE RESISTANCE AFTER INAUGURATION DAY
Our side is the majority, and we have the power to stop Trump's agenda, but it will require that we get organized and fight back.

Where we stand
The politics of the International Socialist Organization
In this extended series of articles on the politics of international socialism, Paul D'Amato, author of The Meaning of Marxism, looks in detail at the ISO's "Where We Stand" statement.

Topics covered include: What is socialism? | What does workers’ power look like? | What do socialists say about reforms? | Why does the working class have the power to change society? | What do we say about trade unions? | The capitalist state | Internationalism | What kind of party do we need? | Explaining what imperialism is and how we oppose it | and more

Find out more about the International Socialist Organization

The ISO is dedicated to trying to bring about a completely different society, free of all oppression and built on the principles of solidarity and democracy. The very first job of our organization is to make the case for socialism—for a revolutionary society that uses the world's vast resources to eradicate poverty, homelessness and every form of scarcity, and that allows the vast majority of people to control their world democratically.

But it is not enough to critique capitalism and explain why socialism is a better alternative. The power to achieve a socialist society lies in the struggles of the working class majority of society.

RAHM'S FALSE CURES FOR AN EPIDEMIC OF VIOLENCE
The solution to Chicago's gun violence tragedy isn't more policing or tougher laws, but reversing neoliberal policies and confronting racism.
