Socialism is about workers themselves creating a new society. It is about the working class democratically planning production and distribution, based on human need instead of the drive for profit.

Today we've seen mass revolutions bring down dictators in Tunisia and Egypt. Their struggles show that revolution is far from an impossible dream.

Whether it's food, housing or any of the other things needed for a decent life, there is already more than enough in the world for everyone. We live in a world of plenty-the problem is that it's in the hands of the rich.

In a socialist society there would be no need for anyone to go without. That really would be a future that works for us all.
