Comrade Harpal Brar will be giving this presentation on the life and work of Karl Marx: his phenomenal contribution to human knowledge in the fields of philosophy, political economy and history, and the great advances in the understanding and waging of class struggle that were made as a result.
What did his work mean to the world he lived in? How has it stood the test of time? What significance does Marx’s work have for people in Britain today, 150 years after the publication of his seminal work, Capital Volume 1?
A presentation to the Stalin Society, followed by discussion.
About the society
The Stalin Society was formed in 1991 to defend JV Stalin and his work on the basis of fact, and to refute the capitalist, revisionist, opportunist and Trotskyist propaganda directed against him.
Stalin’s name is synonymous with communism, the October Revolution, and the overthrow of capitalist exploitation and imperialist tyranny. For this reason, the international bourgeoisie have spearheaded their attacks on working and oppressed peoples by slandering Stalin and the Soviet Union.
They have employed a variety of tactics to this end over the last 90 years, but have been guided to a large extent by dissidents who betrayed the Soviet people, most notably Leon Trotsky. The powerful US-based Hearst press, sympathetic to Hitler, was a pioneer in these methods, but the rest of the capitalist world’s media and political elites have not lagged behind.
All welcome to this meeting who are genuinely interested in the content, ready to listen respectfully to the speaker and wishing to take part constructively in the discussion that follows.
