Voices of the People: Socialism and Simplicity

The first day of May is fast approaching. In some socialist countries May Day is an important date in the struggle of working people to live in an egalitarian society. We’ll anticipate the day, not with political speeches and rallies, but with story and song, poetry and prayer. Along the way we’ll consider the meaning of socialism, the lives of those who benefit from it and fear it, and the ideal of “living simply so that others may simply live.”
