Recently I noticed a poster advertising a May Day march which also invited us to 'celebrate socialism'. The first thing that came to my mind was the slogan from the bicentennial year: 'what is there to celebrate?' Because it's really not clear to me what's left of socialism, nor what the Left project is.
