To Those Who Put Their Hopes in Bernie Sanders

| revcom.us


Many millions of people put their hopes for a better, more just world into the candidacy of Bernie Sanders. Now, Joe Biden—a war criminal, complicit in the war against Iraq and the ongoing torture of its people, a longtime hack for the most venal and predatory capitalist interests, and both a conciliator with segregation and one of those responsible for the genocidal program of mass incarceration—is on track to win the Democratic nomination, and last week Bernie Sanders halted his race. Many of you who put your hopes in Sanders feel bereft.

At this time, with so much in the balance for humanity, we are reprinting and extending to you the invitation below from Bob Avakian, first published in 2012. And we are also recommending to you the recent articles by Bob Avakian, “David Brooks—The Not So Great Pretender—And the Profound Differences Between Trump, Sanders and Actual Socialism”; “To Those Black People Who Are Voting for Joe Biden”; “Lynching, Murder By Police—Damn This Whole System! We Don’t Have to Live This Way!”; “Bob Avakian Responds to Mark Rudd on the Lessons of the 1960s and the Need for an Actual Revolution”; and “Liberals: What Is Their Problem?

Let us hear from you.


An Invitation

From Bob Avakian

Let's go on a crucial journey together—full of unity against oppression and lively struggle about the source of the problem and the solution. Pursue your own convictions—that the outrages that move you are intolerable—to their logical conclusion, and be determined not to stop until those outrages have been eliminated. And if this, as well as learning about other outrages, and ideas about how this all fits together and flows from a common source—and how it could all be ended, and something much better brought into being—leads in the direction of seeing not only the need for bold and determined resistance, but also the need for revolution and ultimately communism, then don't turn away from that because it moves you beyond your comfort zone, challenges what had been your cherished beliefs, or because of prejudices and slanders. Instead, actively seek to learn more about this revolution and its goal of communism and to determine whether it is in fact the necessary, and possible, solution. And then act accordingly.
