Socialism - Antidote to Trump and Brexit?

Choo Chon Kai, Parti Socialis Malaysia | Pierre Rousset, New Anti-Capitalist Party

Socialism - Antidote to Trump and Brexit?

Post-Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, political commentators everywhere are left wondering why forces of the far-right are so effective at speaking to the discontent of people who are disillusioned with the status quo. Have socialist principles failed to address the limitations of neoliberal globalization? Pierre Rousset, a member of France’s New Anticapitalist Party, and Choo Chon Kai, deputy secretary-general of Parti Socialis Malaysia, give their take. Chon Kai is organizer of a conference on socialism taking place from 25-27 November, themed “Exit Capitalism: Build the Left.” Pierre is among the invited guests who will be speaking at the event.
