Welcome to the revcom.us forum

The revcom.us forum is focusing discussion on the New Year's Statement from Bob Avakian, A NEW YEAR, THE URGENT NEED FOR A RADICALLY NEW WORLD—FOR THE EMANCIPATION OF ALL HUMANITY, and related questions.

We have posted, to begin, questions that were raised by participants during the February 6 "Zoom into the Revolution" online seminar. We invite everyone to submit your own comments and questions, including responding to those of other participants in this forum.

This comment also raises the question - can we really change the way people think? BA (building on Marx’s 4 Alls) stresses (in many places) that our thoughts and actions are culturally determined. Under capitalism/imperialism we are taught to “look out for ourselves” because that is the way that this system operates. But we see in any disaster the many examples of how people rise above and transform this thinking to come to the aid of neighbors and others in need – working together for the good of all – the communist way. The Rev Clubs and other revcoms are living the 6 Points of Attention. And we can learn from the example of revolutionaries of what is worth living and dying for. I refer people to the work of the Rev Club in commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Fred Hampton https://revcom.us/a/625/fred-hampton-commemoration-en.html
