The Soviet Union Versus Socialism by Noam Chomsky

http://www.chomsky.info/articles/1986----.htm

 

I'd like to know some thoughts that people have on this article by famous anarchist/linguist/activist Noam Comsky.

 

"The Soviet leadership thus portrays itself as socialist to protect its right to wield the club, and Western ideologists adopt the same pretense in order to forestall the threat of a more free and just society. This joint attack on socialism has been highly effective in undermining it in the modern period."

War, oppression, poverty and climate change have defined the first decade of the 21st century. But so too has resistance. As the global economic system moves from crisis to crisis, ordinary people all over the world are looking for alternatives, and ways to fight back.

The stakes couldn't be higher. We're not just fighting to save jobs and pensions, or to bring the troops home now. Faced with the growing threat of climate change, we're fighting for the future and survival of the planet.

Marxism 2010 is a three-day conference of over 40 talks and panel discussions, where hundreds will discuss and debate how to build a better world.

 Join us: we have a planet to save, and a world to win.
