Why does an organization alleging
to be socialist, solicit money?

Socialists live in the real world of capitalism. We have no choice in that. In the real world of capitalism, disseminating propaganda costs money. We are not rich as individuals or as organizations. Some socialists donate hundreds of hours annually, working for socialism. But hundreds or thousands of hours of donated time does not pay for web site hosting, or domain registration fees, or publishing journals, or advertising.

The revolution for socialism, from start to finish, from today until we create a socialist world, will be the work of the working class. Nobody else is going to do it for us. Capitalists are not going to provide free advertising space, or anything else for free. The need today is to help people understand socialism. Most people do not even know there are real socialist parties, let alone understand what socialism means. It is expensive to buy visibility.

We did not design capitalism. We do not promote capitalism. But today, as noted earlier, we have no choice but to work under capitalism using capitalism’s rules — that requires money.

Donations to Capitalism’s Gravediggers are used solely to cover costs.
