This month our educational session will be a discussion group on The Origin of the Family, Private Property, and the State by Frederick Engels. The Origin of the Family... explores the disintegration of the primitive communal society and its replacement by class based societies. It looks at the origin of the state, patriarchy, and the modern family unit as a result of this. We will have discussion around these concepts and what it means for our struggle in the current context. Join us on February 26th at 6pm for the discussion. If you would like a PDF of this book e-mailed to you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org It can also be purchased affordably at the People's Co-Op Bookstore, 1391 Commercial Drive.
