Alan Woods talks to the ULU Marxist Society on the topic of ‘Marxism
and Religion’. Alan explains the materialist conception of the world,
integral to the theory of Marxism, and contrasts it to the idealist
perspective that gives rise to religion. Alan explains the nature of
religion as a means of consoling the oppressed with a life after death,
the tendency of the church to break down along class lines, as well as
the trade union credentials of God. Listen to part 1 and part 2 .
