Announcing New work by BA, SOMETHING TERRIBLE, OR SOMETHING TRULY EMANCIPATING:

 

In the course of this talk, I will be referring to, and digging further into, key points that are put forward in two very important documents which are featured on our website revcom.us: A Declaration, A Call To Get Organized Now For A Real Revolution; and an article of mine, following up on that “Declaration and Call”: This Is A Rare Time When Revolution Becomes Possible—Why That Is So, And How To Seize On This Rare Opportunity. So, for everyone getting into this talk, everyone who cares about the crucial questions it is speaking to, it is also important to take up (or return to) and get deeply into those documents as well—and to go regularly to revcom.us, and watch the weekly YouTube show Revolution—Nothing Less, both of which sharply illustrate why a real revolution is urgently needed, and is possible, what are the goals of this revolution, and how to be part of building for this revolution. What I will be speaking to here is, as the title says, a necessary foundation and a basic roadmap for this revolution...   Continue reading >>

Bob Avakian on Methods, Principles and Standards

At the beginning of 2012, an in-depth interview with Bob Avakian (BA) was conducted over a period of several days by A. Brooks... We are republishing here sections of this interview which are highly relevant to the current situation—particularly as a critique of the all too-common practice of lies, slander and unprincipled rumor-mongering that are part of the popular culture these days, including among people calling themselves “anarchist”...“left”...“progressive”... “woke.”

Interview With Bob Avakian

The Interviewer Begins: After reading The New Communism (2016), and thinking about issues that in only five years’ time have manifested more severely, as spotlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic, calling even more urgently for changes to the “system that is the fundamental source of much misery and torment in the world”, there are several topics—climate, migration, press freedom, labor-and-supply chain, class, and human rights—that I wonder if you would be willing to speak on. I’ll enumerate below.
 
The interview has been serialized in seven parts.

What Is Science? Can We Apply Science to Society? Does Communism Meet the Falsifiability Criterion of Science?

Some of the slanderous attacks on Bob Avakian (BA) and the Revcoms have evolved to raise the controversy—and bogus charge—that communism is not a science, insinuating that it is a set of precepts of one person and setting the stage, therefore, for the charge that BA and the Revcoms are a “cult.” As a basic introduction, thorough refutation, and correct context, we recommend the following excerpts from Ardea Skybreak and Bob Avakian on precisely these questions.
