The Meaning Of Marxism, Part 3 says
In January, February, and March, we will be discussing The Meaning of Marxism by Paul D’Amato, a concise but thorough book that lays a solid foundation for socialist theory and action. On March 18th, the final session on this book will focus on Chapter 11: Marxism & Oppression and Chapter 13: Imagine the Socialist Future.

The book is available at 30%-off here:

We structure our study groups to include a brief presentation, followed by an open discussion period. We suggest engaging with the readings and talks, but this isn’t mandatory for participation.

Some questions we will consider:
What are Lenin’s views on the right of nations to self-determination? Have women always been oppressed? What is the role of the family under capitalism? Has racism always existed?
Does capitalism need racism? Does Marxism focus on exploitation more than it does oppression? What measures would have to be taken by a workers’ government to effect a transition toward a socialist society? What did Marx mean by a planned economy?
