This year marks the 15th anniversary of the World Socialist Web Site, the most widely read socialist publication on the Internet.
 
At the time the WSWS was launched on February 14, 1998, the corporate media was proclaiming the irreversible triumph of capitalism and “the end of history.” A new era of peace and prosperity had supposedly dawned. What followed, however, was the unending “war on terror,” the worst economic crisis since the 1930s, a devastating collapse in working class living standards, unprecedented attacks on democratic rights, and, in the face of these events, profound cultural and intellectual disorientation.
 
David North, US chairman of the Socialist Equality Party, will review the political and theoretical basis for the WSWS and its roots in the struggle for revolutionary socialism. In reviewing this history, he will address the most fundamental question in contemporary politics: the struggle to build a socialist movement of the working class in a new epoch of war and revolution.
