There Is a Whole Different Way We Could Be Living

In Iran, and everywhere, people need to know there is a whole different way society can be organized that is free from all the ways that people—human beings all over the world—have been demeaned, degraded, exploited and held in chains under the system of capitalism-imperialism that we are living in. This different liberatory society is what is envisioned in the new communism brought forward by Bob Avakian, and given concrete expression in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, written by Bob Avakian. This vision needs to be taken up and applied in Iran and everywhere people yearn to emancipate not only themselves, but all of humanity.

In his New Year’s Statement of 2021, Bob Avakian speaks about what is extremely important about the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America:

It is a fact that, nowhere else, in any actual or proposed founding or guiding document of any government, is there anything like not only the protection but the provision for dissent and intellectual and cultural ferment that is embodied in this Constitution, while this has, as its solid core, a grounding in the socialist transformation of the economy, with the goal of abolishing all exploitation, and the corresponding transformation of the social relations and political institutions, to uproot all oppression, and the promotion, through the educational system and in society as a whole, of an approach that will “enable people to pursue the truth wherever it leads, with a spirit of critical thinking and scientific curiosity, and in this way to continually learn about the world and be better able to contribute to changing it in accordance with the fundamental interests of humanity.” All this will unchain and unleash a tremendous productive and social force of human beings enabled and inspired to work and struggle together to meet the fundamental needs of the people—transforming society in a fundamental way and supporting and aiding revolutionary struggle throughout the world—aiming for the final goal of a communist world, free from all exploitation and oppression, while at the same time addressing the truly existential environmental and ecological crisis, in a meaningful and comprehensive way, which is impossible under the system of capitalism-imperialism.

This is what the new communism can bring. It is extremely important that this vision and this understanding of what is possible be struggled for and become known and discussed everywhere. And right now in Iran, and everywhere, this involves breaking out of the ways people have been conditioned to think about options, that reject or dismiss what is envisioned here from Bob Avakian.

New Year's Statement by Bob Avakian



Will you give generously to something that can make all the difference—a fund drive to put real revolution on the map on a scale not seen in decades, if ever, in the history of this country?

The existential climate crisis… the threat of nuclear war… police murder… rape and brutality against women… the horrific refugee crisis… this system has no good answers for these crises. In an interview on The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show, Bob Avakian (BA) says “We can no longer afford to allow these imperialists to dominate the world and to determine the destiny of humanity. They need to be overthrown as quickly as possible.”


As part of this fund drive, your donation will go to meet the ongoing needs to produce this website, This website provides a unique analysis of major events and trends. It is where you go to find out why a real revolution is urgently needed; why that revolution is possible–especially in this time; the goals of this revolution; and how to be part of building for it. This is where you go to find the major works of Bob Avakian.

Your donation will also give an immediate boost to promote the “game changing” Bob Avakian Interviews on The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show very broadly in society. And also expand production and promotion of The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show—the national YouTube voice of the Revcoms.

Plus, your donation will support the group of tested revolutionary leaders and a cohort of committed young revolutionaries who have concentrated in Los Angeles to develop a model of putting revolution on the map that can be replicated and grow nationally.
