“I would like to see all of BA’s works reach into every corner of this planet”

The following letter from a reader is translated from the Spanish original.
I have taken up the challenge of increasing my monthly support for Revolution newspaper.
I would like to see all of BA’s works reach into every corner of this planet.
BA Everywhere—how much difference could it make?
I am a migrant from Mexico, from a town way up deep in the mountains of Mexico, where it is very rare to be able to access the Internet. One day I received a call from a friend who is in charge of the town library, a place attended by teachers, high school students, college students and grade school kids. I talked to my friend about whether it might be possible for me to send some books for the shelves. He told me that would be no problem. Enthusiastically I went to the bookstore and happily bought some of BA’s works, the DVD [the Revolution talk: Revolution: Why It’s Necessary, Why It’s Possible, What It’s All About, a film of a talk by Bob Avakian], BAsics and others, and sent them off. The following month, I asked my friend what happened to the books, and he told me that a teacher picked up one and some students got Away With All Gods! OK, I said, ask them what they thought about it, and for them to write up what they thought about them whenever they return the books. My friend asked for their opinions. The teacher liked it and he gave him a card for revcom.us. But the students wrote up some of their thoughts, and all wrote about how they felt about the book Away With All Gods! (that they had never seen anything like it anywhere else, and that it was true that the powers-that-be use religion to keep us from fighting against them).
Youth who are seeking solutions to this monstrous and bestial system that we live in. This is a reminder of the importance of RCP Publications. BA’s works need to be accessible in every corner of the planet.
If you really want to change the world, put an end to exploitation, oppression and the contamination of the planet, to rescue the planet from the clutches of this system, BA has advanced the science of Communism; only communist revolution can change all the oppression and exploitation.
Together we all can make it possible that BA is everywhere. A better world is possible.
