There IS a blueprint for how a whole new revolutionary system WOULD set about trying to solve this problem. Read this excerpt from the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, authored by Bob Avakian; read the whole Constitution; and listen to Bob Avakian discuss the difference a revolution could make toward solving this.
