On April 15 at Columbia University in New York City, Slavoj Žižek and Raymond Lotta will engage in a great debate "on the history and prospects of communist revolution." Slavoj Žižek is a prominent philosopher and social theorist. Raymond Lotta is a political economist and advocate for Bob Avakian's new synthesis of communism.

In January 2012, Slavoj Žižek launched an attack on the Revolutionary Communist Party and Bob Avakian in an interview in the Platypus journal. In response, Raymond Lotta wrote a polemic in Revolution and challenged Žižek to a public debate. Žižek accepted. And the debate is on.

At its heart, this is a debate between the world as it is and the radically different world represented and made possible by Bob Avakian's new synthesis of communism.
