This talk—from the most radical revolutionary on the planet—makes the case for massive, sustained nonviolent outpourings. It traces the roots of the regime—the deeper and more immediate causes of its rise to power.

Here’s the evidence-based truth…
*The USA was built on the blood and the bones of enslaved Africans, and the plunder of peoples around the world.
*The wealth of the USA today has everything to do with the exploitation and oppression of people of other countries, especially the poor countries of the global south.
*This kind of language sanctions and has historically led to genocidal horrors.
*The people of the places Donald J. Trump calls “s***holes” have contributed immeasurably and inspiringly to the store of human knowledge and artistic achievement.

Pan’s Labyrinth

Set five years after the end of the Spanish Civil War, Pan’s Labyrinth encapsulates the rich visual style and genre-defying craft of director Guillermo del Toro. Eleven-year-old Ofelia comes face to face with the horrors of fascism when she and her pregnant mother are uprooted to the countryside, where her new stepfather, a sadistic captain in General Francisco Franco’s army, hunts down Republican guerrillas refusing to give up the fight. The violent reality in which Ofelia lives merges seamlessly with her fantastical interior world when she meets a faun in a decaying labyrinth and is set on a strange, mythic journey that is at once terrifying and beautiful.

Science and Revolution
Why Knowing What’s True Has Everything to Do With Getting Beyond This World of Horrors
A Presentation on the New Communism developed by Bob Avakian 

 Tuesday January 9,  7pm at Revolution Books

Bob Avakian is the architect of a whole new framework of human emancipation, the new synthesis of communism. This new synthesis is a continuation of, but also a qualitative leap beyond, and in some important ways a break with, previous communist theory. Essential to this new communism is its emphasis on applying a thoroughly and consistently scientific method and approach to understanding the dynamics of society and to charting pathways for its revolutionary transformation.

This work is needed more urgently than ever. The regime in power aims to consolidate a fascist America, and is aiming to silence and quash critical thinking and dissent, replacing “alternative facts” for truth, as part of enforcing ever greater suffering on the masses of humanity – while the world capitalist-imperialist system plunders and devastates the planet, threatening its very existence.

Join us for a discussion of what the breakthroughs in the New Communism have to do with getting beyond a world where “might makes right.”

Presenter: Andy Zee, spokesperson for Revolution Books, NYC 

* Does science apply to human society? Or are there separate realities and distinct truths for people of different identities? Is science required to get free or is it just another narrative?
* How does the scientific method and approach of the new communism open up new possibilities to achieve a radically different and far better society and world, and that could lead to the emancipation of all humanity? 

    For humanity to advance beyond a state in which “might makes right”—and where things ultimately come down to raw power relations—will require, as a fundamental element in this advance, an approach to understanding things (an epistemology) which recognizes that reality and truth are objective and do not vary in accordance with, nor depend on, different “narratives” and how much “authority” an idea (or “narrative”) may have behind it, or how much power and force can be wielded on behalf of any particular idea or, “narrative,” at any given point.    -Bob Avakian, BAsics, 4:10 

Attendees are invited to read excerpts from Avakian’s work in preparation, which can be found at The Bob Avakian Institute.
