We are the Socialist Discussion Group of Houston,the oldest continuous Marxist discussion group in Texas. It started in 1988! Come join us every other week to discuss classical and current topics in Marxist socialist thought. Each week we discuss a different topic: books, articles, contemporary issues and then carry on a collective discussion. Sometimes we will have guest speakers. Our primary purpose is to increase our understanding of socialism, in both theory and practice. In spite of corporate-owned media attacks on socialism and communism, recent polls show a majority of young people and a majority of progressive people had a positive view of socialism. Many of us are excited by the unexpected win of U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez, the presidential campaigns of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and the rise of progressive political movements such as Our Revolution.
At every discussion, different moderators are welcome to lead our discussion in furtherance of learning from each other. Everyone is welcome to attend. People from diverse political backgrounds and level of political understand come to our group. In the past, we have discussed works by Marx, Lenin, Engels, Rosa Luxemburg, Marxist economists, and less well known socialist authors. Everyone is welcome to attend who has an interest in furthering an understanding and struggle for socialism.
