For a vivid, firsthand description of the struggles, upheavals, and transformations of the 1960s, including the development of the anti-Vietnam War movement, see Bob Avakian’s memoir, From Ike to Mao and Beyond: My Journey from Mainstream America to Revolutionary Communist, especially Chapter 6: “Your Sons and Your Daughters...” and Chapter 7: “...Are Beyond Your Command.” (Listen to Bob Avakian read Chapter 6 here.)

For a thorough discussion of resistance and revolution, the role of the Democrats, and why breaking out of the existing political confines is essential to even waging effective resistance, as well as other issues vital to making revolution, listen to the first of Bob Avakian’s historic 7 Talks—“Why We’re in the Situation We’re in Today... And What to Do About It: A Thoroughly Rotten System and the Need for Revolution,” Track 3.
