"The Problem, the Solution, and the Challenges Before Us"
An important talk given by Bob Avakian earlier this summer.


At a dangerous time for humanity...with the serious threat of a fascist America...there is an even greater need for the work of The Bob Avakian Institute to have impact and reach now. Invite a speaker from The BA Institute. Make a generous contribution.


In light of the current juncture we strongly encourage people to get into these two pieces by Bob Avakian that shed a great deal of light on the roots, dynamics and challenges of Trump's program for a fascist America:

“The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy… And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer”

“The Fascists and the Destruction of the 'Weimar Republic'...And What Will Replace It”

NEW FROM BOB AVAKIAN:

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

A QUESTION, A CHALLENGE FOR PAUL KRUGMAN, AND ALL THOSE CONCERNED ABOUT THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY

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


People respond to Ardea Skybreak’s “SCIENCE AND REVOLUTION On the Importance of Science and the Application of Science to Society, the New Synthesis of Communism and the Leadership of Bob Avakian:

“I am a high school dropout. When I first came around, I didn’t understand half of what the revolutionaries talked about. I always thought: “I will just do the street work and the protests and let other people tell me what to do.” … Once I understood why it mattered to get into the science, I did. All bullshit aside, I asked all the questions that were coming through my mind, I put myself to get into Bob Avakian’s work, and not in a “personal responsibility” type of way, but I actually thought about this question: What does this world right now need more than anything? COMMUNISTS! Genuine communists that are followers of Bob Avakian! Because I knew it mattered, we don’t need more social workers, telling us that everything will be okay and they will help us. What is needed is people who are taking up this New Synthesis of Communism, applying the method, understanding the world, and leading people to themselves break out of these fucked up ways the system got us in, to become communists. How are we going to make revolution if just a few people do the work in the realm of theory while others blindly follow? Because that’s what it would have come down to. And objectively, how are we going to deal with contradictions we face in making revolution, if only a few are dealing with it? It’s impossible! We are never going to make revolution that way, or run a different society that way!”

With america in the midst of a profound sickness evidenced by the continuing slaughter of black people by police recently—it is necessary that a literature be in existence that challenges our assumptions and lets us begin to understand that there is a way out of this suicidal madness.   Read more.
