The Socialism Series is a bi-weekly forum sponsored by the International Socialist Organization (ISO) to take up key questions facing the socialist movement and Left more broadly. In the next two months the series will focus on two themes: neoliberalism and the politics of oppression. We believe Marxism has a great deal to contribute to any understanding of these issues, and is indispensable for developing a strategy of resistance to both. We also believe that with a growing Left and an ever changing world, its important to continue to develop Marxism as a living and breathing theory around developments and questions we confront as activists.

As part of an on-going debate on the Left, we are organizing a discussion to examine the relationship between Marxism, oppression, and privilege theory. We will look at the ways writers associated with privilege theory have looked the origins of racism along with strategies for fighting. And we’ll discuss ways Marxism can examine those same issues. The goal is to both deepen our understanding of Marxism and strengthen our ability to organize a revolutionary movement against oppression.
