The Ideas of the WSM

31st May 2021

Joseph Dietzgen, El Filósofo Obrero

14th August 2022

JOSEPH DIETZGEN es de hecho un filósofo descuidado. ¿Cuántas personas saben que él fue el hombre que Marx introdujo en el Congreso de la Primera Internacional de 1872 como “nuestro filósofo”? ¿O que fue Dietzgen, no Plejánov, quien acuñó por primera vez la frase “materialismo dialéctico”?  ¿O que durante los primeros treinta años de este siglo los Ensayos […]

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”  The World Socialist Movement (WSM) are not the socialist “party” that Marx (or even our Declaration of Principles) envisages, ie the working class as a whole organised politically, for socialism.

5th August 2022

Rich man, poor man, beggar man, and politician—all consider themselves qualified, if not expert, to discuss the whys and wherefores of human behaviour. And yet, in spite […]
