Avakian: Religion is Religion, Communism is Scientific
31 Jul 2005
rwpic.jpgA Leap of Faith and a Leap to Rational Knowledge:
Two Very Different Kinds of Leaps,
Two Radically Different Worldviews and Methods

This article was written by Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, in response to a letter that sent to him.

In addition to attacking communism, that letter also argued against the scientific viewpoint and method and insisted that atheism is just another form of religion.

This article by Chairman Avakian speaks to a number of points in that letter but focuses on the fundamental difference between a communist and scientific outlook and method on the one hand and, on the other hand, a religious worldview which relies on "leaps of faith."

Don't Give Me No Lip, "What's wrong with Mimicking Corporate Media"
30 Jul 2005
-- A response to Jennifer Whitney's article on indymedia, <a href="http://www.ucimc.org/feature/display/87217/index.php";> which can be found here</a>
<p>
The spirit of critique and wanting to help move indymedia forward is something I really appreciate. However, Jennifer Whitney's article, "The Good, The Bad, & (sic) The Ugly: "What's the Matter with Indymedia?" is one part critique, and two parts personal axe grinding, three parts "Ra! Ra! UC, NYC, 501-c(3) IMC" . Beyond the fact that the article is so deliberately misleading in many ways, it should be critiqued on the facts and arguments that it proposes about editorial policy and the mission of indymedia. To its credit, this article raises some of the right types of questions about indymedia's effectiveness and methods, but to its detriment, gives all the wrong answers. Rather, it gives short sighted answers or all the same 'ol answers.

Sapranos in the White House
30 Jul 2005
This was a stroke of courageous beauty amidst the backdrop of the ugly rise of what has the disturbing appearance of corporate/ bourgeois state tyranny. And there are many more. Watch for them, nurture them and protect them. They are our friends and allies.

The 9/11 Key to Political Transformation
30 Jul 2005
There is now an enormous amount of scholarly evidence and expert testimony that a) clearly demonstrates the official 9/11 story is a sham, and b) supports the millions of New Yorkers who, according to a recent Zogby poll, believe that top US officials "consciously" allowed the attacks to happen and that we desperately need a new investigation now.
