Membership in the WSP

The more folks join the World Socialist Party the more we will be able to get our ideas across. The more experiences we will be able to draw on and greater will be the new ideas for building the movement for socialism.

The World Socialist Party is an organization of equals. There is no leader and there are no followers. So, if you are going to join we want you to be sure that you agree fully with our Declaration of Principles.

Download the WSP membership application (pdf), print it, fill it in and send it to us

by post:

World Socialist Party (US)
P.O. Box 440247
Boston, MA 02144

or by email:

The National Administrative Committee (NAC) will review your Application. One or two members will contact you and discuss the WSP’s ideas and your understanding of them.

As it becomes obvious that you should be a member, the NAC will set up a formal interview, normally via conference call, following which it will vote on the merits of the Application.

The Membership Application is different from our Object and Declaration of Principles (D of P), which establish and explain our goals. The Object and D of P together define our fundamental purpose and anyone desiring to join the WSP or acompanion party must agree with them.

The 8 questions asked in the Membership Application are a practical extension of our Principles. They are designed to test the consistency of your understanding of Socialism. Respond giving your own opinion in 2 or 3 paragraphs.

        I almost forgot to mention, if you want to get in email contact with us, you should try for starters. That way, we can help you get back into the swing of things.

      Hello, Comrade Eddie Duffield!

      You sure can renew your membership, as long as you still subscribe to our Principles & consider that capitalism is broken beyond all fixing. I will notify our membership ASAP once you reply to this message. It wouldn’t hurt to download our current Membership Application & review it, of course. I will also add you to our online discussion list & send you relevant documents like the last revised Constitution and Rules, an introductory CD & so on. Your best course of action, I think, would be to introduce yourself to the other comrades on the discussion list.

      So please let me hear from you. I have to apologize for letting this slide so long; we are trying to regain a semblance of normal activity after a series of unfortunate reverses, and we have once again a bit of catching up to do.

      Yours for socialism,

      Ron Elbert for the NAC

      Hi, Comrade Vince,

      I’ll relay your request to our comrades on the Website right away. Can’t see there being any problem. Have you said anything to your EC?

    Hello There Comrades, I know I have asked this question a few times, probably more times than I should, but
    I still don’t understand why it is the WSM, won’t allow God, believers to join. Does it really matter. If we profess to be democratic and very much opposed to telling people how they should think why does it matter.
