In 2016, more than half of young people polled said they rejected capitalism and more than a third said that they held a favorable view of socialism. Since the election of Donald Trump, those numbers have only increased and people in mass numbers have been taking to the streets in protest. But what is socialism? Is Bernie Sanders a socialist? Can we win socialism without a revolution? This presentation will discuss the basic idea of socialism from below and give examples of the kind of political movement that we need to fundamentally change the world.
