Capitalism is on the brink. An entire generation has known only crisis, austerity, and climate catastrophe. Everywhere we look there is war, poverty, and exploitation. And yet, the rich have seen their wealth grow enormously.
People are correctly beginning to draw the conclusion that the root of the problem is capitalism itself. A third of young people in Britain now believe that ‘communism is the ideal system’.
Why communists study Marxism
Communism is not just a good idea or an identity. Communists dedicate their lives to conquering Marxist ideas, intervening in the class struggle, and fighting for revolution.
We proudly stand on the ideas of genuine Marxism, represented by Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Trotsky.
Marxism is ‘scientific socialism’: a way of understanding the world, in order to change it. We begin by analysing the real developments that are taking place under capitalism, and the forces which drive the system into crisis.
The clear conclusion is that we need a revolution. And the only force capable of transforming society is the working class, when organised and mobilised.
The working class is now on the move, in Britain and across the world. But to be victorious, what is required is a fighting, revolutionary leadership.
The International Marxist Tendency has made outstanding progress in the recent period, growing by leaps and bounds. However, we still need to expand our forces.
The building of a revolutionary organisation – in Britain and internationally – is the burning question; not in the remote future, but now.
We are determined to carry out this historic task. That is why we are appealing to you to join us. The revolution needs you! So join Socialist Appeal and the International Marxist Tendency today!
