“Sunsara turned woke-ness on its head and made it feel comical. She was inspiring. Instead of crawling in the dirt, cancelling and obsessing over identity, she lifted our sights to a real revolution that sets all of humanity free. Afterwards, a throng of young people formed around Sunsara to keep talking and just touch her fearlessness.” –an attendee at Sunsara Taylor’s speech in Berkeley
In a time of rapid change—rising MAGA fascism, threat of nuclear war between US and Russia or China, worsening climate catastrophe, intensifying oppression of Black people, immigrants, women and LGBTQ people—young people need to be looking at the big picture, seeking out root causes and actual solutions. Instead, "woke" identity politics is shutting down questioning, lowering people's sights, destructively misdirecting their outrage and contributing to the nightmare.
Bob Avakian has deeply analyzed the perniciousness of “wokeness” and cancel culture, where it came from, and how to win people away from it in the service of making a liberating revolution that puts an end to oppression and exploitation in every form. Rooting themselves in this work, Rooting themselves in this work, Sunsara Taylor, Rafael Kadaris, and the Revcoms are out to demolish the whole framework of "woke" identity politics, lift people's sights, and win growing numbers to a scientific approach and to real revolution.
