“Think of What Difference It Will Make If This Paper Reaches Millions”

We received this correspondence:

I have been a reader of Revolution and its predecessor paper for the past 10 years. Since the era of the Vietnam War, I have sought out alternative media to uncover the truth of what is going on, both domestically and internationally, in order to help organize and fight against war, exploitation, imperialism, and internal repression. I can say unequivocally, Revolution does the best job that I have seen in getting at the truth that is hidden by the layers of ideological mystification and outright lies put out by the capitalist-owned media.

If that were all Revolution did, it would be more than enough. However, we are also given discussion in almost every issue by Chairman Bob Avakian on topics in the theory and practice of authentic Marxism. As a long time student of the history and philosophy of Marxism, I find these articles to be refreshingly scientific and eye opening. I always leave a session with the Chairman feeling strengthened for the battles to come.

In order to have a chance to fight the current rapid slide into U.S. fascism, Revolution is an essential tool. The old Marxists had a saying: “Socialism or barbarism.” It is truer today than ever before.

For what this paper has done for me, I want to put my money where my mouth is: I am contributing $200 to the Prisoners Revolutionary Literature Fund which I understand will allow eight prisoners to receive it for one year, and I am going to sustain Revolution to the tune of $150 a month, because not only does this paper need a huge shot in the arm, but it must have ongoing financial support. That is what I am doing.

Now it’s your turn. To all the readers of Revolution out there, who either read it online or in hard copy, I implore you to do the same. Think of what difference it will make if this paper reaches millions.
