Episode 43 of The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less—Show!

Let's Get Down to Basics: We Need a Revolution...

Episode 43 of The RNL Show comes after this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD) protests and celebrations around the world. It is also in the middle of the trial of pig Derek Chauvin, who murdered George Floyd last year. All eyes are on this trial, and the need to continue to fight for a world where this brutality and degradation are put to an end is crying out—Nothing Less! 

Join hosts of the show Andy Zee and Sunsara Taylor this week as we dive into these topics and get deeper into why revolution is what humanity needs, with excerpts from Bob Avakian’s New Year’s Statement: “A New Year, The Urgent Need For A Radically New World—For The Emancipation Of All Humanity” and other key works including part 2 of “Bob Avakian For The Liberation Of Black People And The Emancipation Of  All Humanity.”

This Episode Features: 

Let's get down to basics: We need a revolution. Anything else, in the final analysis, is bullshit.

Now, that doesn't mean we don't unite with people in all sorts of struggles short of revolution. We definitely need to do that. But the proffering of any other solution to these monumental and monstrous problems and outrages is ridiculous, frankly. And we need to be taking the offensive and mobilizing increasing numbers of masses to cut through this shit and bring to the fore what really is the solution to this, and to answer the questions and, yes, the accusations that come forth in response to this, while deepening our scientific basis for being able to do this. And the point is: not only do we need to be doing this, but we need to be bringing forward, unleashing and leading, and enabling increasing numbers of the masses to do this. They need to be inspired, not just with a general idea of revolution, but with a deepening understanding, a scientific grounding, as to why and how revolution really is the answer to all of this.
