RAD: Reading and Discussion

May 24 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Hi Folks,

Silicon Valley DSA is hosting some webinar reading groups during the quarantine that engage with our immediate political situation. We would like to encourage participation from others as well as ideas on readings and topics that will bring people in and build the socialist movement. Get in touch with the Political Education working group at pol-ed@siliconvalleydsa.org or on our Slack channel.

Our next meeting will be on May 24 at noon. We will discuss The Housing Question by Friedrich Engels. Everybody knows that we face a housing crisis in the San Francisco Bay Area. During the 1870s, rapidly industrializing Germany also faced a similar housing crisis and for very similar reasons as ours! We will explore Engels’ polemic essay by discussing the wide range of opinions he writes against as well as his proscriptions for a solution.

This week there’s only one article (an introduction and four parts) and you can locate it at Marxists.org: https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1872/housing-question/.

You don’t have to read the article in advance, but it is encouraged! We look forward to seeing you there!

P.S. Here is the meeting RSVP form:
