A Revolutionary Situation... The Role of the Youth... & How to Work Today So That There Is a Revolutonary Force When That Time Comes

Join us for a continuing discussion of this important topic. Many people insist, "there could never be a revolution in this country: the powers-that-be are too powerful, the people are too messed up and too caught up in going along with the way things are, the revolutionary forces are too small."

In the excerpts we will be listening to, Bob Avakian speaks to why revolution is possible, the strategy the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA has developed and how it is carrying out revolutionary work today, and how, in a revolutionary crisis, revolution could prevail and bring into being a radically different and far better world.

atom What Is Real?

Join us for an informal discussion of the ideas presented in the article "What Is Real?" from the August issue of Scientific American magazine.

This article questions whether the basic components of the material world that physicists study -- particles and fields -- really exist. You don't have to know anything about physics to read the article and to participate in this discussion; it's about the fundamental question of whether a material world exists independently of our consciousness and how do we know what's true? But you should read the article. Also as background material, the article "Crises in Physics," Crises in Philosophy and Politics by Bob Avakian in Demarcations.

A Radical Step
Into the Future



In English
En español

This Constitution (Draft Proposal) is written with the future in mind. It is intended to set forth a basic model, and fundamental principles and guidelines, for the nature and functioning of a vastly different society and government than now exists: the New Socialist Republic in North America, a socialist state which would embody, institutionalize and promote radically different relations and values among people; a socialist state whose final and fundamental aim would be to achieve, together with the revolutionary struggle throughout the world, the emancipation of humanity as a whole and the opening of a whole new epoch in human history–communism–with the final abolition of all exploitative and oppressive relations among human beings and the destructive antagonistic conflicts to which these relations give rise.

Paperback, 91pp., $8.
