“Cult”—An Ignorant and Cowardly Slander

On the internet (and elsewhere), there are people spreading the claim that we revcoms are a “cult.” In reality, we are a serious revolutionary force, basing ourselves on the scientific method and approach of the new communism brought forward by the revolutionary leader Bob Avakian (BA). This “cult” accusation is, among other things, an expression of the ignorance and cowardice of people who are afraid—or, in any case, who refuse—to confront the reality of what is actually going on in the world, the heavy stakes this involves for the masses of people in the world and ultimately all of humanity, and the actual, and urgently needed, solution to this through a real revolution—and how this is scientifically and compellingly brought to life through the leadership of BA.

Bob Avakian has written articles, which can be found at (here and here), answering in some depth this “cult” accusation—analyzing how this accusation is not just false, and ridiculous, but is a striking example of utter lack of honesty and intellectual integrity, and of any serious approach to bringing about a more just, and sustainable, world. And the interviews with BA on the YouTube RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show are themselves a powerful refutation of this whole “cult” accusation.

This “cult” slander not only crudely distorts what we revcoms are actually about. It is also aimed at discouraging people from getting into what we are actively working to bring about: a real revolution, with all that means and all it would open the door to—a new and far better world, with the abolition of this system of capitalism-imperialism that we are now forced to live under, the truly horrific and totally unnecessary suffering it imposes on masses of people in this country and billions of people throughout the world, and the growing threat it poses to the very existence of humanity.

DONATE to the revolution.

From the genocide in Gaza, to the growing threat of world war between nuclear powers, to escalating environmental devastation… the capitalist-imperialist system ruling over us is a horror for billions around the world and is tearing up the fabric of life on earth. Now the all-out battle within the U.S. ruling class, between fascist Republicans and war criminal Democrats, is coming to a head—likely during, or before, the coming elections—ripping society apart unlike anything since the Civil War. 

Bob Avakian (BA), revolutionary leader and author of the new communism, has developed a strategy to prepare for and make revolution. He’s scientifically analyzed that this is a rare time when an actual revolution has become more possible, and has laid out the sweeping vision, solid foundation and concrete blueprint for “what comes next,” in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America

The website follows and applies that leadership and is essential to all this. We post new materials from BA and curate his whole body of work. We apply the science he’s developed to analyze and expose every key event in society, every week. posts BA’s timely leadership for the revcoms (revolutionary communists), including his social media posts which break this down for people every week and sometimes more. We act as a guiding and connecting hub for the growing revcom movement nationwide: not just showing what’s being done, but going into what’s right and what’s wrong and rapidly learning—and recruiting new people into what has to be a rapidly growing force.

Put it this way: there will be no revolution unless this website not only “keeps going” but goes up to a whole different level!
