A Simple Way to Begin a Geometric Progression on Social Media—
Promoting the film of Bob Avakian’s Talk

April 23, 2018 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


A fan of the filmed talk by Bob Avakian, THE TRUMP/PENCE REGIME MUST GO! In The Name of Humanity, We REFUSE To Accept a Fascist America. A Better World IS Possible, has been spreading this on social media and we wanted to share what some of the impact has been.

She shared a post from revcom’s Facebook page (@tuneintorevcom) to a variety of Facebook groups and pages, from groups calling for impeachment, to groups working to elect more Democrats, to groups ridiculing Trump in various ways, and more. The post had the trailer for the film with this text:

She did this with several similar posts with clips. These clips were viewed thousands of times, were shared on Facebook by others hundreds of times and received dozens of comments. The comments were often substantive, including back-and-forth discussion among themselves. When people shared the clips to their own page, many had comments like: “NOW HEAR THIS” or “Watch & Share !!”

  • This speech articulates what I have often felt instinctively, but, did not have the tread that he provides.
  • YES! YES! YES!
  • Thank you sir.
  • The Dems are following protocol because they HOPE that following rule of law will be reciprocated by the right-wing. The obstruction of the right during Obama’s administration proves that the right will burn this whole place down if they can get away with it. They play dirtier than we can even imagine. The deal that’s still in play between Dems and Repubs is that they will follow the rule of law, at least appear to. But we all know that the right doesn’t. Paul Manafort’s crimes are common among the right operatives and organizations. But how can we change government without facing the breakdown of civilization, as we’ve seen in Syria, in Russia during the Bolshevik revolution? An ideological war is great in theory, until you have to watch everyone you care about starve to death. Or worse.
  • I agree Both Pence and Trump need to go and the sooner the better
  • Orwellian NWO, 1984 coming to be true. Thank you for noticing that both sides hate our republic.
  • This guy NAILS it!
  • The Democrats are getting paid by the same rich donors to lay down and lose. Elect Justice Democrats and a brand new congress and it will stop.

The plan posted last week at revcom.us called for the creation of a social movement around BA’s talk, and the spreading of the talk as this fan did is something that anyone can do. And it can play an important role in the development of that movement. We encourage people who are already active on social media to do this, and report to revcom on what you are learning.
