Today, we are releasing the full audio of the Q&A from the summer 2018 speaking tour with Bob Avakian (BA).

The Q&A was based on people having heard a speech in two parts: Why We Need An Actual Revolution And How We Can Really Make Revolution. We are posting the audio of this speech along with the Q&A.

The first part went deeply into WHY the system cannot be reformed and why only an actual revolution can bring about the fundamental change that is needed. The second part went into HOW this system can be defeated—and what we need to do NOW to prepare for the time—for a revolutionary situation when it would be possible for millions to go all out to win.

Following the speech, a little more than two hours, the next four hours or so in each city was a revolutionary, scientific and vibrant journey with BA, who has forged a whole new framework of human emancipation, the new communism. This, at a time when existential questions on the very future of humanity are acutely posed.

What you have here is BA unrehearsed and uncut. It is a living laboratory of the scientific method and approach to reality and its radical transformation, going to work with, and leading others on the thorniest problems of the revolution. What comes through in striking relief is a model of the road BA has charted to get to a world free of exploitation, oppression, and antagonistic social divisions—and the humanity of the road and the person who concentrates this.

The questions are wide-ranging. Listen, and explore beyond the horizons of the way the world is to the way the world could be. Explore it together with friends, comrades and colleagues. Play and study them together and wrangle with the questions, the answers and the underlying approach. In the following weeks and months, these Q&As will be released as podcasts—both as audio and video that thousands can be part of spreading—to reach all throughout society.
