Gainesville Socialists Reading Group

Published Kayla Coleman - Wed, 11/02/2016 - 5:00pm

Gainesville Socialists will be discussing "The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex".

The Revolution Will Not Be Funded gathers original essays by radical activists from around the globe who are critically rethinking the long-term consequences of this investment. Together with educators and nonprofit staff they finally name the “nonprofit industrial complex” and ask hard questions: How did politics shape the birth of the nonprofit model? How does 501(c)(3) status allow the state to co-opt political movements? Activists--or careerists? How do we fund the movement outside this complex? Urgent and visionary, The Revolution Will Not Be Funded is an unbeholden exposé of the “nonprofit industrial complex” and its quietly devastating role in managing dissent.

Since we have extra time and the work is well under 300 pages. Let's try to get the whole thing read.

We will also be discussing the launch of the fundamentals of socialism reading group.
A secondary reading group dedicated to political education for the masses. With the aim of bringing more people to a better understanding of and fuller commitment to socialism.
