Who We Are

Humanist Workers for Revolutionary Socialism (HWRS) is an organization composed primarily of former members of the now-defunct Workers’ Voice organization.

We believe that in order to save humanity from the economic chaos, social injustice, and environmental destruction caused by global capitalism, it is necessary to abolish the capitalist system altogether and replace it with a humane, democratically-run planned socialist economy.

We also believe that in order to accomplish this task, it will be necessary for a critical mass of people, internationally, not only to adopt the principles, methods, and program of socialist revolution, but also to transform ourselves. This transformation requires that we transcend the alienated, egocentric personality characteristic of capitalism, and embrace a spirit of community, cooperation, and mature insight.

Finally, and most important, we believe that no program for socialist revolution can be developed or implemented without a clear understanding of the dialectic method.

Effective September 12, 2009, to better reflect the class character of our method and program, we changed our formal name to Humanist Workers for Revolutionary Socialism. Our website’s domain name will remain the same, however, and we continue to use our former name, Humanists for Revolutionary Socialism (HRS), as an informal alternative.
