Carson’s Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates: Monday, November 6, 2017

Soviet Revolution Centenary Special Episode

Join us, Monday, November 6, 2017, at 11 pm Eastern Standard Time, for Carson’s Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates. On Carson’s Corner, we discuss the news and events of the last week, with a socialist, revolutionary, and non-electoral perspective.

Tuesday, November 7, 2017, marks the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. Often called “The October Revolution,” or “Red October”, this revolution was the most important event in history, establishing the first-ever socialist workers’ state and setting the stage for the history of the global working class ever since.  

On this episode, Bob Carson and Chris Driscoll consider:

  1. The history of the Bolshevik Revolution and the conditions that led to it;
  2. The leaders of the revolution;
  3. The Civil War, N.E.P. and forced collectivization;
  4. Why did the Soviet Union collapse in 1991?
  5. Why revolution and the establishment of a workers’ state making the working class the ruling class are essential to human progress;
  6. The global impact of the Bolshevik Revolution;
  7. The reaction of reactionaries and imperialists;
  8. Other socialist revolutions inspired by the Bolsheviks;
  9. Why the Soviet Revolution matters to working people today around the world.
