CNN 10/22/2019: Cornel West on #OutNOW! “If things don’t work the way the system is, we gotta hit the streets, we gotta go to jail. That’s exactly what #OutNow is all about. Next Saturday, every Saturday, it’s going to be like Puerto Rico, it’s going to be like Hong Kong. The people have to speak with their feet…”

“Who is going to settle this crisis?”
Will the interests of the people be fought for… and what that has to do with #OUTNOW. Listen here:

Principles, Methods and Aims in Building An Actual Revolution

Each week we publish short excerpts that draw on the new communism to give guidance to people working for an actual revolution.

To know and change the world...
get into Bob Avakian (BA),
the leader of the revolution.

BA has developed a new communism, a thoroughly scientific method and approach that charts a pathway to human emancipation.

This column features timely work from BA – a “living lab” of probing reality and grappling with advancing the revolution.

Read on to find BA's foundational work that gives a more overall understanding of why we need a revolution, what that revolution is all about, and how we can really make that revolution and build a whole new society.

Highlighting now

Beginning this week, we are sharing with our readers excerpts from a recent talk given by Bob Avakian.
October 27:

While it is right and necessary to unite with people broadly in opposing the injustices and outrages committed by those who rule this country, and while this has taken on heightened importance with the coming to power of the Trump/Pence fascist regime, it is a basic truth that without breaking with American chauvinism—without confronting the very real horror of what this country has been, and what it has done, here and all over the world, from its founding to the present—and without coming to deeply hate this, it is not possible, in the final analysis, to retain one’s own humanity and act in the highest interests of all humanity.

WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.
