Pathfinder Press, 1 janv. 2009 - 73 pages
The answer to the question posed in the title of this book takes on added urgency in 2009 with the contraction of capitalist production that is accelerating worldwide. In two talks, presented as part of a wide-ranging debate at the annual Venezuela Book Fairs in 2007 and 2008, Mary-Alice Waters explains why a socialist revolution is not only possible. Even more importantly, she explains why revolutionary struggles by working people are inevitable, initiated not by the toilers, but forced upon us by the employing classs crisis-driven assaults on our living standards and job conditionson our very humanity. As solidarity grows among a fighting vanguard of working people, the outlines of coming class battles can already be seen.
