What is the point of capitalism?

Right across the world people are starting to re-examine socialist ideas as an alternative to this barbaric and failing system. But every time they do they are lectured by academics, press barons and politicians who tell them. “Well socialism was full of nice promises but in fact it just delivered tyranny.” Look at Russia they say. Are they right?

Does human nature mean that any attempt to establish workers control and to produce for need and not profit will only replace one sets of vicious rulers with another?

Is reform of capitalism therefore the only option for those who question it? Come to our meeting and the brilliant socialist, trade unionist and psychiatric nurse Yunus Bakhsh will explain why Lenin did not have to lead to Stalin and how Socialism is indeed capable of fulfilling its promises. This is a meeting you shouldn’t miss!
