Life Under Marxism:
Why It Didn’t Work, and Lessons for Us Today

Since the collapse of communism in Europe in 1989, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe have undergone massive social changes. One can draw many lessons from the collapse of communism, but perhaps the most significant are anthropological in nature. Dr. Stephen Bartulica, former advisor to the President of Croatia on Catholic affairs, addresses Marxism’s failure to create a new kind of human being – innocent and disinterested in property and material wealth – and how it deprived people the opportunity to assume responsibility for their own lives.

This event is co-sponsored by the Institute for Human Ecology and the Busch School of Business.
