The following are quotes from Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, including from the book BAsics, from the talks and writings of Bob Avakian available in print or as a free E-book



"What people think is part of objective reality, but objective reality is not determined by what people think."

BAsics 4:11

"There is a place where epistemology and morality meet. There is a place where you have to stand and say: It is not acceptable to refuse to look at something—or to refuse to believe something—because it makes you uncomfortable. And: It is not acceptable to believe something just because it makes you feel comfortable."

BAsics 5:11

"There is no App for critical thinking."

Bob Avakian, Chairman of the
Revolutionary Communist Party, USA

"For humanity to advance beyond a state in which ‘might makes right’—and where things ultimately come down to raw power relations—will require, as a fundamental element in this advance, an approach to understanding things (an epistemology) which recognizes that reality and truth are objective and do not vary in accordance with, nor depend on, different ‘narratives’ and how much ‘authority’ an idea (or ‘narrative’) may have behind it, or how much power and force can be wielded on behalf of any particular idea or ‘narrative,’ at any given point."

BAsics 4:10

What we need is an actual revolution—and if you are serious about an actual revolution, you have to get seriously into BA.
