Keywords:Education, Media, Political Economy

As the meaningful alternative to inaction, incoherent protest, and "shallow reformism," socialists in the United States can (1) help the world socialist movement to acquire a deeper understanding of American imperialism; and (2) teach fundamental Marxist truths to Americans.
