Please join Platypus on Saturday for this special event:
In the mid-19th century, Marx and Engels famously observed in the
Communist Manifesto that a 'specter' was haunting Europe—the specter
of Communism. 160 years later, it is 'Marxism' itself that haunts us.

In the 21st century, it seems that the Left abandoned Marxism as a
path to freedom. But Marx critically intervened in his own moment and
emboldened Leftists to challenge society; is the Left not tasked with
this today? Has the Left resolved the problems posed by Marx, and thus
moved on? Does Marxism even matter?
