THE REVOLUTION WE NEED...THE LEADERSHIP WE HAVE

A Message, And A Call, From The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA

This Is NOT The Best of All Possible Worlds…And We Do NOT Have to Live This Way

We live under a system of capitalism-imperialism...a system in which U.S. imperialism is the most monstrous, most oppressive superpower…a system driven by a relentless chase after profit, which brings horror upon horror, a nightmare seemingly without end, for the vast majority of humanity: poverty and squalor...torture and rape…the wholesale domination and degradation of women everywhere...wars, invasions and occupations…assassinations and massacres…planes, missiles, tanks and troops of the USA bombarding people in faraway lands while they sleep in their homes or go about their daily lives, blasting their little children to pieces, cutting down men and women in the prime of life, or in old age, kicking down their doors and dragging them away in the middle of the night…while here in the USA itself the police harass, brutalize and murder youth in the streets of the inner cities—over and over again—and then they spit out their maddening insults, insisting that this is “justified,” as if these youth are not human beings, have no right to live, deserve no respect and no future.

For millions in the inner cities, if they are not killed at an early age, their likely future is prison. This system has robbed so many youth of the chance for a decent life and has got far too many living, dying and killing for nothing—nothing good—nothing more than messing up people and murdering each other on the streets of the cities here...or joining the military, being trained to be murderers on a mass scale, massacring people in countries across the globe. A system which offers millions and millions of youth no greater purpose, no better fate, than crime and punishment, or to become a mindless killing machine for the system itself—that alone is reason enough to sweep this system from the face of the earth!

Some say this is all “god’s will” and we just have to “put it all in god’s hands.” But it was not some god that got us in this situation…and it won’t be some god that will get us out of it. The truth is, there are no gods…and we don’t need them!

THE REVOLUTION WE NEED

It is this system that has got us in the situation we’re in today, and keeps us there. And it is through revolution to get rid of this system that we ourselves can bring a much better system into being. The ultimate goal of this revolution is communism: A world where people work and struggle together for the common good…Where everyone contributes whatever they can to society and gets back what they need to live a life worthy of human beings…Where there are no more divisions among people in which some rule over and oppress others, robbing them not only of the means to a decent life but also of knowledge and a means for really understanding, and acting to change, the world.

This revolution is both necessary and possible. This is the truth that is covered up and lied about, but we have the facts and the analysis to back this up. This capitalist-imperialist system is in crisis…This system is bankrupt…This system is rotten to the core…This system is based on ruthless exploitation…This system commits so many monstrous crimes, and causes so much unnecessary suffering. We do not need to be sacrificing even more to “rescue” this system. This system needs to be swept aside…its crimes against humanity stopped cold…its institutions dismantled, and replaced by ones that empower people to build a new society free of exploitation and oppression. It is true: now is not yet the time, in this country, to go all-out to seize the power away from those who rule over us and to bring a new power, serving our interests, into being. But now IS the time to be WORKING FOR REVOLUTION—to be stepping up resistance while building a movement for revolution—to prepare for the time when it WILL be possible to go all out to seize the power.

All this is not possible without leadership. But the thing is…There is leadership.

THE LEADERSHIP WE HAVE

In Bob Avakian, the Chairman of our Party, we have the kind of rare and precious leader who does not come along very often. A leader who has given his heart, and all his knowledge, skills and abilities, to serving the cause of revolution and the emancipation of humanity. Bob Avakian has developed the scientific theory and strategic orientation for how to actually make the kind of revolution we need, and he is leading our Party as an advanced force of this revolution. He is a great champion and a great resource for people here, and indeed people all over the world. The possibility for revolution, right here, and for the advance of the revolution everywhere, is greatly heightened because of Bob Avakian and the leadership he is providing.

Right now, and in an ongoing way, we must spread the word about the revolution we need and the leadership we have, to every corner of this country…giving people the means to become part of this revolutionary movement, and organizing into this movement everyone who wants to make a contribution to it, who wants to work and fight, to struggle and sacrifice, not to keep this nightmare of a world going as it is but to bring a better world into being.

Yes comrade. And I am sure that when the revolution comes, your experience and your zeal will naturally mean that you will be enusured a senior party position. Of course, such greater responsibilities will also entitle you to elevated priviliges in order to fulfil your duties. At the very least a chauffeur and a handful of personal aides. The stresses of the position will also mean you are entitled to a publicly subsidised Hawaiian dacha. I'm sure it will only get better from there. Society will be so totally different man...

Does this mean the twist is coming back, too?
Is that the Chairman Bob that has a running dog named Lackey?
Isn't true communism leaderless?

You and Chairman Bob will have to start the revolution without me. I don't want to be classless.
Wow who'd a known...
That's a lot of smoke and rhetoric that provides a sum total of no evidence or reliable statistics but plenty of "we want you for our army if you are at most marginally literate" typa lingo... wow again...ya really blew my mind. It almost sounds like...a...hmmm..how do I put this...a cult? or perhaps religion? Oh wait...have I just made the opposition to the revolution list for having an opinion? Perhaps I should go into hiding.
COMMIES ARE NOT ATHEISTS!

(did I just type that in all caps as if to indicate I was yelling?)

YOU BET YOUR SWEET PATOOT I DID!

Communism is no different than religion.
Exactly. Communists worship the "we."
"In Bob Avakian, the Chairman of our Party, we have the kind of rare and precious leader who does not come along very often."

I stopped reading there, any reform party (or anything really) that touts it's leader like that is destined to fail.
True, very scary if it did succeed, yet still destined to fail eventually.

Plus those uniforms make my butt look big.
Well Steve, maybe Hollywood just figured they'd never be able to white wash all the blood those murder'n bastards shed.
Most unfortunate that communism doesn't work, but it doesn't. The lazy dominate and the quality of life drops dramatically while the elite (essential in all systems) live the good life and emulate capitalist wealthy.

Communism is a utopian idealization of the human animal and does not take into account the realities.
The Larry Carter Center blames everything on Obama.

Seems the fashion amongst a certain set and I really suspect racism is at the bottom of all of it.

We are still a very racist nation...equality was forced on the South and theirs is a seething, churning resentment. It spills out everywhere and contaminates the rest of the nation.
