Random Topics - Democratic Socialists of America

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is a social democratic organization in the United States and the U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International, a federation of social democratic, democratic socialist and labor parties and organizations. DSA was formed in 1982 by a merger of the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC) and the New American Movement (NAM). DSOC was the largest group to emerge from the splintering of the Socialist Party of America in 1973; two other Socialist Party factions went on to form Social Democrats USA and the Socialist Party USA. NAM was a coalition of writers and intellectuals with roots in both the New Left movements of the 1960s and the more traditional parties of the Old Left. At its founding, DSA consisted of almost 5,000 ex-DSOC members and 1,000 ex-NAM members. By 1983 DSA reached 7,000 members, which it would not surpass until the early 1990s. When founded, Michael Harrington and socialist-feminist author Barbara Ehrenreich were elected as the organization's co-chairs. Recently, membership has increased to around 10,000. The DSA is the largest socialist organization in the United States.

1 Interestingly, I read from somewhere that socialists think Democrats are not socialist enough or something like that. I also read somewhere the socialists themselves say Obama is not a socialist. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 4, 2010, 10:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Brewmaster -- Compared to similar parties in other countries, the Democrats tend to be more "left of center" than actually leftist. -- Submitted By: (Maskdt) on January 5, 2010, 4:04 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
