Marx Memorial Library

Add to calendar

Marxism is becoming popular - even the Governor of the Bank of England has said that if the economic crisis worsens, “Marx and Engels may again become relevant”.  Marxism reveals that crisis is inherent in capitalism and that its super profits are based on the exploitation and oppression of ‘the many’, with immense damage to our planet. So how can Marxism enhance our understanding of inequality, culture, ecology,  the family, racism, sexism, science and religion? Bring your questions about Marxism along to this session – and get some answers!
