Tribunes of the People and the Trade Unions

Product Description

The authors of this book—Karl Marx, V.I. Lenin, Leon Trotsky, Farrell Dobbs, and Jack Barnes—draw on generations of revolutionary struggles by working people to explain why organizing to strengthen the unions is not only essential to the fighting unity and political striking power of the working class. It’s central to building a revolutionary proletarian party as well. 

But the activity of a workers party neither begins nor ends there. It begins by extending the party’s political reach in all directions, to cities, towns, and farms. By exchanging views and experiences with all layers of workers, farmers, and other toilers—irrespective of skin color, language, religion or sex. By broadening cultural horizons and knowledge of history and the world. 

A tribune of the people uses every manifestation of capitalist oppression to explain why it’s workers and our allies who can and will—in the course of struggles by the unions and beyond—lay the foundations for a world based not on violence and competition, but on solidarity among working people worldwide.

Are They Rich Because They're Smart?

Product Description

Explains the sharpening class inequalities in the United States and the resulting conflicts accelerated by today’s slow-burning world depression. It takes apart the self-serving rationalizations of a growing layer of well-paid professionals that their schooling and “brightness” equip them to “regulate” the lives of working people, who can’t be trusted to know what’s in our own interests.

 

In the coming battles forced upon us by the capitalist rulers, says Jack Barnes, workers will begin to transform ourselves and our attitudes toward life, work, and each other. Only then will we discover our own worth and learn what we’re capable of becoming.

 Cuban Revolution' 1961 literacy campaign. Thousands of young volunteers hold up giant pencils.

Art & Culture.

‟Culture is a social phenomenon. Just because of this, language, as the organ of intercourse between men, is its most important instrument. The culture of language itself is the most important condition for the growth of all branches of culture, especially science and art...Yes, culture was the main instrument of class oppression. But it also, and only it, can become the instrument of socialist emancipation.″ —LEON TROTSKY, 1926

Photo: Thousands of young literacy brigade volunteers join December 1961 “rally of the pencils” in Havana, Cuba to celebrate successful completion of year-long campaign to teach 1 million peasants and workers to read and write.
