Event Details

The god that failed: Communism & socialism then and now

In 1949, a group of six ex-communists published a seminal work titled, “The God That Failed.” It was a major work that riveted America. In 2017, has communism and socialism failed? Sadly, no—at least in the popular imagination and in the minds of many Millennials. Why does socialism suddenly seem on the surge in America in a way that it hasn’t before? Where, why, and how are today’s young people learning to like socialism?

The year 2017, incidentally, will be the centenary of the launch of global communism, when the Bolshevik Revolution erupted in Russia. Overall, 2017 seems a perfect time to pause and assess the history and future of socialism in America, and even more radical variants such as communism. Many communists, including in the USSR, referred to themselves as socialists. Many socialists today bristle at the idea that their socialism has any resemblance to communism, especially Western socialists and “democratic socialists.” What is the status of these ideologies? How should we view them from a political, economic, cultural, philosophical, ideological, educational, and (especially) religious perspective? How should people of faith assess socialism and its more radical variants?

The Center for Vision & Values will consider these important questions and address the communist-socialist phenomenon—past, present, and future.

NOTE to parents of current Grove City College students: You will receive a special invitation at a later date. You may also contact Brenda Vinton at blvinton@gcc.edu for registration instructions.
