Marx21 is a network of revolutionary socialists across the United States. We stand in the tradition of socialism from below: the idea that workers can only emancipate ourselves through our own struggles.
This tradition was initiated by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, and subsequently developed by revolutionaries such as Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky, Rosa Luxemburg, and many others around the world since.
Workers create all the wealth under capitalism. A new society can only be constructed when they collectively seize control of that wealth and plan its production and distribution according to need.
We oppose the madness of capitalism — a system run by a tiny, wealthy elite. We believe we need an alternative system based on mass democratic planning — in the interests of human need, not profit. We believe we need a world free from racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and every kind of oppression.
We are committed to building strong social movements for climate action, against fascism, for immigrant rights, for women’s liberation, and to strengthen labor struggle in the United States. We welcome members who share our goal to win a world free from exploitation and oppression.
United we can win a better world.
Marx21 stands in the international socialist tradition and is connected with other like-minded socialist groups around the world in the International Socialist Tendency. You can also read the tendency’s quarterly theoretical journal International Socialism.
