September 22, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
On Saturday, October 8th, a major book launch will take place at the Schomburg Center in Harlem for Bob Avakian's pathbreaking new work, THE NEW COMMUNISM: The science, the strategy, the leadership for an actual revolution and a radically new society on the road to real emancipation. This event will feature readings from the book and thought-provoking commentary and discussion from Cornel West and Carl Dix. Afterwards, everyone is invited to join these speakers for a fundraising after-party at Revolution Books to celebrate, raise funds, and forge revolutionary community.
This book and event is for everyone who cares about the state of the world and the conditions of humanity and agonizes over whether fundamental change is really possible.
Here's 3 reasons you should get your ticket and book today:
1. Come to this book launch because Bob Avakian's THE NEW COMMUNISM is about emancipating all of humanity.
Where there is oppression, there will be resistance—and we see this vividly in the world today. But, without the necessary scientific theory and leadership, even the most heroic uprisings will remain confined and channeled back into the very system that is the source of this madness and the oppression will grind on. In THE NEW COMMUNISM, Bob Avakian provides this necessary scientific theory for an actual revolution on the road to real emancipation. Bob Avakian is the architect of a whole new framework of human emancipation and THE NEW COMMUNISM is sure to challenge stereotypes and conventional thinking.
2. Come to this book launch because Bob Avakian (BA) combines world-class revolutionary theory with a visceral connection to the most oppressed and an amazing ability to break this down so everyone can understand and take it up.
THE NEW COMMUNISM is a master work and a master-class, drawn from a major presentation BA gave to a conference of revolutionaries. In it, BA brings to bear his many decades as a fearless revolutionary leader and speaks directly, with science and passion, to the most pressing questions of our time. Among other things, he lays bare the scientific approach and the kind of morality necessary to bring about emancipation for all seven billion people on our planet. Through the readings and commentary, this event will give you a vivid sense of this leader and the significance of his work. How could you not want to hear this?
3. This book launch and after-party is a chance to come together with others, including Cornel West, Carl Dix and Andy Zee, to get into THE NEW COMMUNISM and forge community with others concerned with human emancipation.
Cornel West, a revolutionary Christian, stands out among intellectuals for his principle and his work, for standing with “the least among us” and for having engaged Bob Avakian, including in the historic Dialogue on Revolution and Religion. Carl Dix is a longtime follower of Bob Avakian and a revolutionary leader in his own right. Andy Zee is the spokesperson for Revolution Books. Together these courageous and radical voices will share their experience with, knowledge of, and deep respect for Bob Avakian and the morality of what his life continues to be about with a diverse audience.
Again, how could you not want to be there?
