A new communist movement is being born. How can it turn into a force for revolution? How can communism win? Socialist Revolution editor Antonio Balmer explains the foundations of communism and why we need to study Marxist theory to achieve a successful socialist revolution in our lifetime. This talk was part of the NYC Marxist School, which gathered some 200 communists from across the Northeast and Canada on October 7–8 for a weekend of discussions on Marxism and revolutionary strategy.
