Revolution: Why it’s Necessary, Why it’s Possible, and What it’s all about
25 Aug 2009
Revolution: Why it’s Necessary, Why it’s Possible, and What it’s all about

In 2003 Bob Avakian delivered this historic talk in the United States. This is a wide-ranging revolutionary journey. It breaks down the very nature of the society we live in and how humanity has come to a time where a radically different society is possible. He lays it all out in a nine-hour speech-and then goes into three hours of question-and-answer dialogue with the audiences. It's all there-full of heart and soul, humor and seriousness.
There is nothing online like THIS: nothing that gets at these questions as deeply, thoroughly and truthfully as this. Millions of people are searching for the truth, and watching videos, short and long. Some of these give part of the answer; but some of them-including some of the most popular-give people bullshit answers, pointing people in the wrong direction and spreading poison. Here, and all over the world, people need to see Revolution: Why It's Necessary, Why It's Possible, What It's All About.

world can wait for avakian
25 Aug 2009
Bob Avakian is not the primary question facing revolutionaries today.

Questions to an RCP Supporter

* Why the silence about Nepal?
* Why this “cultural revolution” in the Party?
* Why have so many people left?
* Where is the “wild and wooly debate”?
* Why are they accusing critics of counterrevolution?
* Why are they constantly talking about threats to their leaders and organizations?
* What really is the New Synthesis?
* How does it actually differ from communism that has come before?
* Is it a correct synthesis that will lead to the development of a revolutionary movement and a revolution in fact?
* Why are they holding a line that “Avakian is a cardinal question” or the equivalent of (if not greater than) Marx, Lenin and Mao?
* Is this justified?
* How do you know the answers to any of these question?
* What is the basis for your decision to agree with Avakian and the RCP?
* Is it a well studied analysis of what Avakian and the RCP have to say in light of what communist theory has held in the past, and in light of what the current conditions are in the world?
* Or do you make your decision based on something else?
* Is it because you are afraid to lose your identity as a communist?
* Is it because you are afraid to lose friends and family?
* Is it because you are afraid to think critically and find that the RCP’s math doesn’t add up?
