Todd Chretien, an activist and organizer for the International Socialist Organization, gave a talk Saturday, Februrary 2nd, 2013, at Portland State University on “State and Revolution” from a Marxist perspective. In these excerpts, Chretien discusses the difference between the liberal, social democratic and Marxist views of the role of government (the state) in society. He makes the argument that our current government cannot be reformed to abolish poverty, racism, war, exploitation or the other evils of capitalism, but must be replaced through revolution.
