REVCOM.US—August 24, 2019

Prepare the Ground, Prepare the People, and Prepare the Vanguard—Get Ready for the Time When Millions Can Be Led to Go for Revolution, All-Out, With a Real Chance to Win.

To know and change the world...
get into Bob Avakian (BA),
the leader of the revolution.



There is the potential for something of unprecedented beauty to arise out of unspeakable ugliness: Black people playing a crucial role in putting an end, at long last, to this system which has, for so long, not just exploited but dehumanized, terrorized and tormented them in a thousand ways—putting an end to this in the only way it can be done—by fighting to emancipate humanity, to put an end to the long night in which human society has been divided into masters and slaves, and the masses of humanity have been lashed, beaten, raped, slaughtered, shackled and shrouded in ignorance and misery.

—Bob Avakian

The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

You Can't Change the World
If You Don't Know the BAsics

Every week, REVCOM.US features quotes from BAsics, by Bob Avakian, the handbook for revolution. This week we have a set of six quotes, which are available as a slide show as well as on a page where they can be read. We encourage Revolution Clubs and other readers, everywhere, to take the time to discuss the quotes—the whole quotes—and to write us at with accounts of these discussions, or thoughts provoked in yourself by reading the quotes.

To know and change the world...
get into Bob Avakian (BA),

BA has developed a new communism, a thoroughly scientific method and approach that charts a pathway to human emancipation.

This column features timely work from BA – a “living lab” of probing reality and grappling with advancing the revolution.

Read on to find BA's foundational work that gives a more overall understanding of why we need a revolution, what that revolution is all about, and how we can really make that revolution and build a whole new society.

WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.
