Social democracy: why does it disappoint?

Location

Tuesday June 24, 6:00pm
OISE (252 Bloor Street West), room 8201
 
Join us for a discussion on the roots of social democracy and why it tends to constantly disappoint whether in power or as opposition. As parties rooted in the working class or left wing, why can't they live up to the hopes of the class they are supposed to represent? Why have social democratic parties across the world been steadily drifting to the right? 
 
The discussion will be kicked off by a very brief intro for those unable to do the readings. 
 
Everyone is welcome. Here are some helpful readings: 
 
The broad party, the revolutionary party and the united front
ONDP: WTF?
The NDP and the fight against Harper
