The pamphlet aims to explain the basic ideas of democratic socialism, the alternative to the profit-driven system of capitalism.
Socialism is a very simple concept. It’s about using society’s wealth for the betterment of all. It’s about sharing out the wealth rather than having a world where the top 1% live like kings while the rest of us struggle to make ends meet. Socialism is about putting an end to want, to wars and to ongoing crisis.
Socialism is a powerful idea, but ideas need organisation to become a material force that can influence events. That is why in addition to explaining the socialist alternative to capitalism this pamphlet argues that socialist change will only come about through socialist organisation – primarily the building of a far-sighted revolutionary party.
