Revolution #205, June 27, 2010
A big part of how Bob Avakian is going to become known throughout society is through the promotion of his online talk, Revolution: Why It's Necessary, Why It's Possible, What It's All About. Over the next month, new clips from that talk will be posted on revolutiontalk.net and youtube.com/revolutiontalk. This week's clip will be "Valuing dissent under socialism." Last week's clips speak directly to two burning questions: "Why do people come here from all over the world?" and "Not fit caretakers of the earth."
Watch these clips, tell your friends about them, and find creative ways to spread them among those you know. This week we're focusing on spreading them on the Internet:
- if you're not already, become a fan of the Revolution talk page on Facebook and invite your friends to do the same. This grows the number of people following updates and comments from the Revolution talk, and is key to expanding its online presence and impact.
- get into and help initiate discussion on Revolution talk's Facebook page about these clips, and the talk as a whole. Share what provoked you about this talk, and why others need to get into this.
- embed these clips on your Facebook page.
- embed these clips wherever people are talking about questions that Avakian is touching on. The clip on "Valuing dissent under socialism" should get up wherever people are talking about the U.S. Social Forum, debating and discussing what kind of different world is really possible. The clip on "Why do people come here from all over the world?" in relation specifically to Arizona, where people are expressing outrage about these fascist laws, and the "Not fit to be caretakers of the earth" clip should be getting engaged in the discussion of the oil catastrophe in the Gulf.
Tell others about these efforts, and get into how this is a part of building a movement for revolution. People taking up and spreading this themselves in these ways is exactly how online videos spread exponentially. And if you have any further ideas, post them to the Facebook page or email them to email@example.com.
