Two works by Bob Avakian that shed a great deal of light on the current political juncture—its roots, its dynamics, and what must be done in response
November 14, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
EDITORS' NOTE: These two pieces by Bob Avakian shed a great deal of light on the current political juncture: its roots, its dynamics, and what must be done in response. “The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy… And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer” was published in 1998 and it concerns the impeachment of Bill Clinton. The other, “The Fascists and the Destruction of the 'Weimar Republic'...And What Will Replace It,” was published in 2005, shortly after the re-election George W. Bush.
We strongly recommend that our readers get into these, get them out and discuss them. It really has to be said that there has been nothing close to this analysis in its prescient and penetrating character (even as Bob Avakian draws on a wide range of sources to make this analysis).
This work by Bob Avakian was originally published anonymously and so the author, Bob Avakian, is referred to in the third person; and also note that it was originally published during the presidency of Bill Clinton and so, unless otherwise noted, when “Clinton” is referred to this means Bill, and not Hillary, Clinton.
