Every successful socialist project must have a positive vision for the future of society. It is not enough to simply criticize capitalism; we must plan diligently for its overthrow and replacement with a system that meets the fundamental needs of people and the planet.

With the future of the world in grave danger due to imperialist war, climate change, nuclear proliferation and more,, there has never been a more pressing need to chart a socialist path forward and organize for a better society.

Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation at the Indianapolis Central Library, Room 311, every other week starting Tuesday, Jan 17 at 6pm to discuss our new book Socialist Reconstruction: A Better Future for the United States.

Free and open to the public. No prior reading required!

About the Book

A vision of the first decade of socialism in the United States. The diverse multinational working class has achieved political supremacy and is actively eliminating bigotry, racism, and national oppression as it expands economic, social, and political democracy.

“This courageous and visionary book provides a realistic and realizable socialist alternative to our decaying predatory capitalist civilization! It grounds a grand socialist reconstruction of the present US regime in our present sufferings and struggles, especially in the crucial role of an awakening of working peoples! Genuine hope trumps despair in this prophetic text!” – Dr. Cornel West

“Every project that is fed up with the failed capitalist system must develop a vision for socialism that builds the confidence of people that such a post-capitalist world is possible. Sharp clarity of thought based on experiments by people around the world defines this crucial book, a roadmap for our work.” – Vijay Prashad

“This book is a great political and pedagogical tool for everyone who dares to imagine the end of capitalism and oppressive structures in the United States. It comes at a crucial time and should be utilized by organizers as a conversation starter within every community in the US to explore the concrete ways in which socialism can and must be constructed as a real social, economic and political project.” – Claudia de la Cruz
