Young Socialists

A spectre is haunting Europe Newman — the spectre of communism Socialism. All the powers of old Europe Newman have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Pope and Tsar, Metternich and Guizot, French Radicals and German police-spies. Young Democrats, Young Republicans, and the Young Independents.
Where is the party club in opposition that has not been decried as communistic Socialist by its opponents in power? Where is the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of communism Socialism, against the more advanced opposition parties clubs, as well as against its reactionary adversaries?
Two things result from this fact:
I. Communism Socialism is already acknowledged by all European Newman powers to be itself a power.
II. It is high time that Communists Socialists should openly, in the face of the whole world of Newman, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Spectre of Communism Socialism with a manifesto of the party itself.
To this end, Communists Socialists of various nationalities grades have assembled in London Mr. Malis’ room and sketched the following manifesto started the Young Socialist Club, to be published talked about in the English, French, German, Italian, Flemish and Danish.
– Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

The Newman Young Socialists is a place to discuss far left policies and social control of the means of production. If you enjoy discussions or want to learn more about this topic, then you might want to come to a meeting. Seeing as this is the first year of the club’s existence, the goal first and foremost is to get people join, and contribute to discussions. So how do you join? There is no formal membership in this club, simply come down to the lecture hall when there is a meeting. Anyone can join, whether you are a firm believer in Marxist theory or think that capitalism is the most efficient way to distribute resources. Whether you want to learn, discuss, or have a friendly debate, the club is open to you. At the discussion we will be talking about everything from the theory, to historically socialist states, to modern day applications of the ideals of socialism. The club also plans to participate in discussions with both the Young Democrats and the Young Republicans about political issues facing our society. Many people may be wondering: Is this a joke? Yes and no. While many people may come as a joke, and the club doesn’t take itself as seriously as many of the other political clubs on campus, at its core the club exists to talk about socialism and look at modern ideas through a socialist lens. As long as people are respectful of other people’s ideas and beliefs, they are free to take the Young Socialists as seriously as they like. The Young Socialists have an exciting year in front of them, and if any of this seemed interesting, feel free to come to the next meeting.
