Who We Are

Welcome to the main website of The World Socialist Party US. We hope that you find our videos and blog of interest. For free literature please complete and submit the form here.

The World Socialist Party US is part of the World Socialist Movement. The World Socialist Movement consists of socialist ‘companion parties,’ groups, and individuals in various countries. You may like to explore the websites of our companion parties in Britain and Canada: The Socialist Party of Great Britain and The Socialist Party of Canada.

The goal of the World Socialist Movement is world socialism, which we define as ‘a world society based on the common ownership and democratic control of the means of production and distribution by and in the interest of the community as a whole.’

The word ‘socialism’ is used by different people to mean different things. An essential feature of socialism as we understand it is democracy. We also hold that socialism must be established by democratic means. The World Socialist Movement itself is organized democratically.

For further discussion of the meaning of socialism, see the website ‘What Is Socialism?’.

Capitalism is inherently unjust, exploitative, and predatory. Its ruthless pursuit of profit ruins the natural environment on which all life depends. Its rivalries sow conflicts that may escalate to nuclear war and destroy civilization. Only socialism can ensure human survival.

We invite you to join us, help spread socialist ideas, and lay the basis for a better life for everyone.
