We are on the threshold of momentous change. Around the world working people are deeply dissatisfied with the status quo. We face endless economic crisis, endless wars abroad, and ever-rising surveillance and repression at home. We see fabulous wealth accumulation for the super-rich, and bitter austerity for the rest of us. We witness merciless plunder of our fragile environment by a profit system that threatens the very survival of civilization. The signs of discontent are everywhere.
