Questions from the Q&A's:

  • From Part 1 at 27:13: How is it possible to maintain a movement of that scale for a long period of time?
  • From Part 4 at 14:46: I've been out, trying to tell millions of people that we need to drive out this regime before it becomes too late... and I know millions feel the way we do, but if they don't act, does that matter? We say we still have time but how do we know that we still have time before fascism fully consolidates? How do we know how much time we have left?

An Historical Question for Those Who Say “Yes, But...” to Ousting the Trump/Pence Regime

December 4, 2017

A point to those who say the situation with the Trump/Pence regime is very dire, but there is no way to drive them out of the office because of the Republican majority:

Do people ask: “Why didn’t the Nazi Party stop Hitler?” Or do they ask: “Why didn’t the ‘good Germans’ do something commensurate when they saw where things were headed?”

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.
