    I attended the meeting. It had an attendance of 40-50 people or more. A professor brought his class in, and many students asked thoughtful questions. Discussion included the similarity of Scandinavia with the model of the Socialist Party USA, the party’s stance against centrist and authoritarian forms of socialism like China, Cuba, and the former Soviet Union, the party’s stance against industo-military complexes, nuclear power and nuclear weapons, and the necessity of workers and citizens to take control of their own lives. Brian also explained how the redistribution of wealth and the increase of democratic freedoms would increase the incentive of workers who would no longer be forced to give the majority of their wealth to their employers. These radical systemic changes, he said, would allow Americans to stop thinking in cut-throat, no-one-else-but-me terms, and orient ourselves toward the betterment of our community and our neighbors as it is in Latin American countries, for example.
