Democratic socialism

Democratic socialism

According to its statutes, the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation stands for the basic political trend of democratic socialism. We are working on concrete improvements in people's everyday lives, knowing that it cannot stay as it is. We are working on an end to capitalism, on a society that Bernie Sanders carelessly calls socialism. This includes things that are taken for granted, such as free health care and education as well as affordable housing for everyone; free public services from libraries to local public transport; democratic participation that makes a difference; the ecological restructuring of cities, transport, energy supply and agriculture; much more time for each other and for life. This is where the unfulfilled past futures appear, from the French Revolution to the Russian Revolution to 1968 or 1989. As Jeremy Corbyn says: “This is brand new for the younger generation.” It is about paths in capitalism that lead beyond it.
We should not lag behind in naming our ideas of a solidary, democratic, feminist, anti-racist post-growth alternative with a new-old, unpaid name and argue together for what it should mean in the 21st century: socialism - one good, solidary, just society, the simple that seems difficult to make. Not everyone will sign this, but it should go without saying that a transformation left stands for it.
