Episode 65 of The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less—Show!

It's NOT a "Scamdemic," It's a FASCIST PANDEMIC! PLUS:
Andy Zee at Revolution Books, Summer of Soul and More...


It's not a “scamdemic” or a “plandemic.” It's a FASCIST PANDEMIC! And it's disproportionately killing Black people, Latinos, and Native Americans. Sunsara Taylor breaks down how the fight over the vaccine, masks, and science is fueled by—and feeds into—the broader crisis throughout society and government that makes this a rare time when revolution becomes possible. An excerpt of Andy Zee's major August 4 speech at Revolution Books invites you into historic documents from The Revcoms and Bob Avakian to understand and seize on this rare time. Plus, we get into the new film, Summer of Soul by Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson of The Roots, and share a deep exchange between Bob Avakian and Cornel West from their 2014 Dialogue that includes a deep exploration of the relationship between people standing up and the emergence of an uplifting and liberating culture.
