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.

In one of BA’s writings I read recently, he said something to the effect of: “The people are going to have to realize that they’ll have to give up their religions.” Seriously?

In one of BA’s writings I read recently, he said something to the effect of: “The people are going to have to realize that they’ll have to give up their religions.” Seriously? This will not fly. People must have the freedom of religion. Period. What he suggests is a form of dictatorship. I don’t know about you, but these words and concepts are a complete deal breaker for me. I cannot support him because of those things… Why does BA call it a “Socialist Society” and a “New Communism”? Which is it? Again the “word” “Communism” is so demonized, why use it? Even Socialism is demonized—but much much more acceptable.
