Reflection on the New Work by BA, The Science, the Strategy, the Leadership for an Actual Revolution, and a Radically New Society on the Road to Real Emancipation

The following correspondence is from a Spanish-speaking reader ofíon.

For whom and for what?

This is one of the questions that we have to be constantly going back to, because it reflects the seriousness we have on all this, but fundamentally whether humanity can be emancipated or not... and if the answer is yes—what kind of system will exist, how will society be reorganized? Under what mode of production will the basic needs of the people be created and met, and what will the social relations be like arising from this economic base, not only in one particular country but internationally? Because even as revolution has been undertaken in any place in the world, once it is established, socialism will still have to deal with a capitalist-imperialist world.

What is your life going to be about?

Each day there is no dramatically different change (a communist revolution) in the world, the suffering will continue, until there is no reason to fight. And it’s not that no one has attempted something, whether correct or not... Today with global warming you hear people saying, you have to recycle and things like that. Which, however positive that may be, cannot respond to the kind of problem which is being dealt with.

Revolution and nothing less is what is needed. Without a scientific method, without a dialectical-materialist approach to reality, no qualitative change can be achieved in the society or in the world.

The new synthesis of communism provides a new vision with a strategy and concrete plan and broad fight for a radically different world.

Why BA?

There’s something crucial regarding the new synthesis of communism developed by BA. (I must say that very few people know about BA.) The value of his contribution has no price. We are saying that for a long time there has been no leader of this caliber.

We are saying that BA and his leadership and the new synthesis really can be what represents a qualitative advance toward world revolution, freeing up the potential of the masses, breaking all chains for a communist world.

This is not poetry... but not recognizing this could drive us to a new wave of oppression, death, and destruction. But on the other hand, there are those who recognize the importance of BA and his leadership, studying and continuing to engage the theory, learning from his method and approach, since new contradictions will continue arising as we go forward resolving today’s problems.

We cannot afford to lose a leader like him. We cannot wait until he is gone to start studying and taking up the work he is developing, to start promoting him among the basic masses and intellectuals, to start challenging everyone to deepen and engage, to be able to solve all these problems through revolution.

This is very serious, this is not a gift, there is work to do, and the responsibility grows.

Who will be there, who will be on the front lines? Who will continue this work?

We are lucky that BA is here and is alive and active, modeling and working on all these contributions, but as BA says, there is work to do. The fact that there is a possibility does not mean that it will fall from the skies—we have to put the pedal to the metal, preparing the ground, preparing the people, and preparing the Party for revolution.
