Event description

Description

The finance aristocracy, in its mode of acquisition as well as in its pleasures, is nothing but the rebirth of the lumpenproletariat on the heights of bourgeois society.Karl Marx, 1850

The election of Donald Trump as president of the United State is an extraordinary political event, which will have far reaching global consequences. A corrupt right-wing casino operator and Reality TV entertainer, whose chief strategic advisor is closely linked to neo-fascist websites and organizations, will soon be in control of the most powerful imperialist state in the world. What accounts for this degradation of democracy in the United States? David North will examine the interaction of economic, political, and cultural conditions that has led to this unprecedented crisis of American society.

A leading member of the Trotskyist Fourth International for nearly a half-century, David North is the chairperson of both the US Socialist Equality Party and the international editorial board of the World Socialist Web Site. A prolific Marxist theoretician, Norths recent books are The Crisis of American Democracy, The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished Twentieth Century, The Frankfurt School, Postmodernism and the Politics of the Pseudo-left, and A Quarter Century of War: The US Drive for Global Hegemony 19902016.
