Everything You've Been Told About Communism Is Wrong
We Have the Facts and We're Setting the Record Straight

September 16, 2013 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


Do we have to accept this world as it is? With endless war, environmental catastrophe, the subordination and degradation of women, racism, and mindless consumerism.  Is capitalism the only and most optimal system for humanity?

The truth, the pervasively suppressed truth, is that the socialist revolutions of the Soviet Union (1917-56) and China (1949-76) opened new and unprecedented possibilities for human emancipation. You don't know that because you have been lied to about communism and revolution. Through high-profile "memoirs" that recite tales of suffering and persecution...through supposedly scholarly works about the Cultural Revolution or Stalin...and through hall-of-mirrors repetition, where everyone says "what everyone knows" about communism—but really does NOT know!  

If you yearn for a far better world, and care about critical thinking and historical truth, then you need to visit the Setting the Record Straight on Socialism and Communism page at revcom.us. This is where you can learn about the great breakthroughs, as well as the serious shortcomings and problems, of the first wave of communist revolutions. This is where you can become part of and help spread the debate about human possibility.
