◻︎SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY
I want to share an article today that seems particularly timely in this age of Trump and “Make America Great Again.” On this July 4th my thoughts turn to this piece I read many years ago, written by James P. Cannon who was National Secretary of the U.S. Socialist Workers Party (SWP) from 1938 until 1953. It was published in the July 16, 1951, issue of The Militant, a socialist newsweekly since 1928. I first read it in a compilation of Cannon’s writings, Notebook of an Agitator, available at Amazon or Pathfinder Books.
There’s not much I can add to what Cannon says here except to emphasize that he presents a timely perspective on the problems we face today — a different road forward to solve some of the very real problems that Trump claims to address.
