Episode 10:

“Internationalism—The Whole World Comes First!”

Premieres on

Thursday, May 28

Bob Avakian has posed the challenge: 

If you can conceive of a world without America—without everything America stands for and everything it does in the world—then you’ve already taken great strides and begun to get at least a glimpse of a whole new world. If you can envision a world without any imperialism, exploitation, oppression—and the whole philosophy that rationalizes it—a world without division into classes or even different nations, and all the narrow-minded, selfish, outmoded ideas that uphold this; if you can envision all this, then you have the basis for proletarian internationalism. And once you have raised your sights to all this, how could you not feel compelled to take an active part in the world historic struggle to realize it; why would you want to lower your sights to anything less?

Episode 10 of The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show pivots off this quote, laying bare brutal crimes of the American imperialist system and the way it exploits global humanity, and lifting our sights to what a real revolution based in the new communism forged by Bob Avakian will open up. The episode will feature an excerpt from BA Speaks: Revolution, Nothing Less! where Bob Avakian speaks on the importance and meaning of internationalism, and an interview with revolutionary leader Lenny Wolff on how the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, authored by Bob Avakian, will put the whole world first.

WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. Revcom.us/Revolution is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.
