Does Marxism Even Matter?: A Teach-in on the Communist Manifesto, New York

In the mid-19th century, Marx and Engels famously observed in the Communist Manifesto that a specter was haunting Europe the specter of Communism. 160 years later, it is Marxism itself that haunts us.

A teach-in led by Platypus Affiliated Society Member Jamie Keesling on October 6, 2011, at the New School.
