REVCOM.US—November 21, 2019

Prepare the Ground, Prepare the People, and Prepare the Vanguard—Get Ready for the Time When Millions Can Be Led to Go for Revolution, All-Out, With a Real Chance to Win.

 

 

 

One of the most common and problematical forms of this repeated and stubborn insistence on chasing after the illusion of “painless progress,” particularly among people who consider themselves somewhat enlightened (or progressive, or “woke,” or however they want to put it), is what we very rightly term BEB—Bourgeois Electoral Bullshit—and the phenomenon that people continually confine themselves to the narrow limits of what is presented to them by one section of the ruling class, as embodied in the Democratic Party:  “These are the limits of what I’ll consider in terms of possibly bringing about change”—because this is the well-worn rut of what is, at least up to this point, relatively safe in terms of political engagement.

Stephen Miller Is a NAZI, Not a So-Called "White Nationalist," and the Fact That Millions Are Not in the Streets and Demanding His Ouster Shows How Late Is the Hour

A helpful guide to Stephen Miller...
and all those like him, and all those who want to ignore him

Definition

white nationalist – noun, singular
[WHYT?-NAH?-SHE-ON-A-LIST]

  1. A made-up word.
  2. Polite’ for NAZI.
  3. Dangerous To Humanity

syn: fascist, white supremacist

Common uses in mainstream sentences:
to normalize fascism; to domesticate and sanitize opposition to said fascism; to accommodate to viscous, blood-thirsty ghouls; to contribute to letting people who should know better sleepwalk through a nightmare.

“White nationalist” is an invented category. It is the height of the most insidious and harmful “political correctness” there is. 
Quit using – or tolerating – polite terms to describe bloodthirsty genociders.

New Issue of Demarcations

Announcing New Special Issue of Demarcations

This special issue features the prepublication version of Bob Avakian’s historic work, BREAKTHROUGHS: The Historic Breakthrough by Marx, and the Further Breakthrough with the New Communism. A Basic Summary in multiple languages—English, Spanish, Farsi, Portuguese, German, and Turkish. The latter two are partial, and works in progress.

Demarcations, in announcing this special issue, states, “At a moment when it is no exaggeration to say that vast swaths of humanity and the planet are confronting a catastrophic future and even potentially existential risks due to the workings of this system of capitalism-imperialism, there is no greater need and contribution to a radically different world than to take up and spread Bob Avakian’s whole new framework for human emancipation, concentrated in this work, EVERYWHERE.”

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. Revcom.us/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.
