Socialism is an idea whose time has come. The stunning rise of Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist, confirms nationally what Kshama Sawant first proved in Seattle. Especially among the rising generation, thirst for socialist ideas has never been greater.
Yet the establishment media, consolidated into just a few corporate monopolies, refuses to give a voice to working people. We need to build our own independent media, produced by and accountable to ordinary people fighting for social change. And we need an independent media that doesn’t simply critique capitalism from the sidelines, but offers a serious strategy to win real victories today linked to a clear vision for a socialist future.
This is what Socialist Alternative offers. Our paper goes beyond just telling the story of frontline struggles. We provide the socialist analysis, strategy, and tactics needed to win. Our pages build on the proven strategies that won two historic victories for Kshama Sawant, the first socialist elected to Seattle City Council in 100 years. Our editorial team brings the experience of leading the fight for $15 to its first major victory in the nation. And the ideas of Socialist Alternative are guiding our fast-growing movement all across the country.
