Brighton Discussion Group

" If a worker wants to take part in the self-emancipation of his class, the basic requirement is that he should cease allowing others to teach him and should set about teaching himself." - Joseph Dietzgen

Socialist consciousness involves understanding socialism which means talking about it, sharing ideas about it - in short, educating ourselves and our fellow workers about it. 

People become socialists from their experiences; meeting socialists is part of that experience. Class struggle without any clear understanding of where you are going is simply committing oneself to a never-ending treadmill. 

We come to a socialist view of the world by interacting directly or indirectly with others, exchanging ideas with them. And that is perhaps the role of this discussion meeting as a catalyst in the process of changing consciousness.
