‘LIVING THE DREAM: BEING A SOCIALIST IN A CAPITALIST WORLD’ Summer School (Birmingham – 2nd/4th August) 🗓 🗺

October 23, 2018

Fircroft College, 1018 Bristol Road, Birmingham B29 6LH

Our political views are shaped by the circumstances we find ourselves in and how we relate to our situation. How does a socialist understanding of capitalism and the aim for a free and equal world compare with other political stances and belief systems? Why should we have a socialist viewpoint? And how does it impact on our lives? Our weekend of talks and discussion looks at what it means to have a socialist outlook in the 21st century.
