If this is your first time reading this paper or going on this website, we’re sure you’ve never seen anything like Revolution/revcom.us. You’re intrigued by what’s here, agreeing with and moved by some of it, disagreeing with other things, maybe not sure about some other things. Now what?

If you’re at all concerned about the state of the world and dream of a radically different society or wonder if that’s possible, if you're in school and trying to figure out what your life is going to be about--then STAY CONNECTED. Go to revcom.us regularly―there’s something new on it every day—and get your hands on the print issue of Revolution (which comes out every two weeks) when you can.

It's in Revolution and at revcom.us that you can learn about and get connected with the movement for revolution that is aiming to sweep away this horrible system we live under, as soon as possible, and bring into being a whole other way for people to live. And it's through this paper and website that you can find many different ways to start to get involved—to make a real difference in the world—as you explore what this is about and compare and contrast what's here with other worldviews and programs.

Each and every week and from day to day, Revolution/revcom.us (as we say in the statement about our mission) “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.”

At revcom.us and in the pages of Revolution, you can get into the work and leadership of Bob Avakian (BA), the chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, who has developed a new synthesis of communism and brought forward a viable vision and strategy for a radically new world.

It’s at revcom.us and in the pages of Revolution that you can get a scientific understanding of key developments in the world—like the clash between the U.S. empire and Islamic jihad, the global climate emergency, the genocidal program Black people face in this country, and much more. This website and paper is grounded in the scientific method and approach, to get under the surface appearance down into the underlying dynamics and driving forces of society that reveal what is the real problem and the actual basis to transform people’s thinking and society in a revolutionary direction. (For a lively discussion of the scientific method and approach, check out the interview with Ardea Skybreak available at revcom.us and as a newly published book: SCIENCE AND REVOLUTION: On the Importance of Science and the Application of Science to Society, the New Synthesis of Communism and the Leadership of Bob Avakian.)

It’s at revcom.us and in the pages of Revolution that you can hear the voices of those locked up in the hellholes of America. It’s at revcom.us and in Revolution that you can get the real story of the uprising in Baltimore and other resistance against police terror. You'll get the truth about the intolerable conditions that force people in the Third World to flee to other countries and their perilous journeys to Europe and the United States. Or what’s happening in the cultural arena or the sciences.

And as you begin to find out more about what's the real source of the horrors that people here and around the world are caught up in, you'll be confronted with the question of what to do to contribute to real radical change. Revolution/revcom.us is how you can get connected to others who are part of the movement for revolution, in different places and in different ways, and with revolutionary leadership. This website and paper magnifies and amplifies the efforts of people in different corners of society to act together to fight the power and to join together in a powerful movement for revolution. Revcom.us and Revolution is where you can go to find out how to get linked up with the efforts to spread the word everywhere about Bob Avakian and his pathbreaking work, the fight against police terror, the struggle to defend the right to abortion and against other attacks on women, and other important aspects of the movement for revolution. All this is why we say (in the statement cited earlier) that Revolution/revcom.us “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.”

If you’re not staying connected with Revolution/revcom.us, you’re missing out on something vital and urgent every day.
