Are you just learning about socialism, and if so, what kinds of questions might you have?

I'm always learning more about socialism. I think it's important to talk about both how socialism works but also why capitalism doesn't do everything it supposedly does. It's good to learn how to refute common myths about both.

What kinds of political activism are you interested in?

Electoral politics is important because the state wields real power. On the other hand, the state doesn't respond without grassroots pressure forcing it to. And, organizing at the point of production is just as important.

Are you a college or high school student?

Long ago.

Introduction

Like my vintage protest picture? If I remember correctly, it was against the most recent war on Iraq.
