A Country Ruled By White Supremacists—Since When Is That Acceptable?


◾ A Question of Basic Stand and Orientation—SUPPORT AND SPREAD THE FURY AGAINST SEXUAL ABUSE

On BA’s Talk on the Trump/Pence Fascist Regime:


From a reader

[This talk] is a truly masterful concentration of both current conjunctural (fascism on the rise) and deeper historical roots analyses (how did we get to this point and why?), along with leadership being given to what to do about all this, all while never failing to reveal and confidently proceed back from the largest and most strategic objectives of the New Communism, while also providing a school of method and principle, plus an outlining of the basic pathway forward in practice for those with whom unity can be forged in the current conjuncture even if they don’t yet share (and might never share) those ultimate communist objectives. A model of solid core, with lots of elasticity based on the solid core. A model of unite all who can be united, on the right basis and with the right methods. A model of calm confidence and certitude based on science. A model of decency, of morality, of approachability, of humor and compassion, and yes of hope, all the while not falling into the slightest bit of tailing or ass-kissing and instead waging ferocious polemical struggle with the masses of different strata to work on those living contradictions and challenge and bust through the obstacles and the confining and paralyzing frameworks of this period. And all in an hour. Wow! And then with it the Q&As, with all its intangibles, substance, remarkable scientific ease and liveliness on full display "off the cuff"—Wow yet again!


I love it when he talks about my people being all people… My people across the board—I don’t care who they are…he always puts the struggle against white supremacy at the center… Second, the centrality of the issue of gender, the vicious forms of patriarchy… Third, empire—invasions, dominations… And the fourth, the planet—not just global warming. It’s ecological catastrophe… Read more
