The New Communism 
The science, the strategy, the leadership for an actual revolution, and a radically new society on the road to real emancipation 
This book is for anyone who cares about the state of the world and the condition of humanity and agonizes over whether fundamental change is really possible. It is a masterwork and a master class — it is a living laboratory of the new synthesis of communism developed by Bob Avakian. It is also striking in its ability to combine high level revolutionary communist theory and modeling of revolutionary leadership with a visceral, colloquial and passionate style that will resonate with and be accessible to a wide variety of readers.

In the fall of 2012, Bob Avakian gave a series of talks in different cities. This is a film of one of those talks.
“Those this system has cast off, those it has treated as less than human, can be the backbone and driving force of a fight not only to end their own oppression, but to finally end all oppression, and emancipate all of humanity.” – From the film

“Yes, this is a film, but that is not its essence. This is a daring, substantive, scientific summoning to revolution. 6+ hours that can change how you see the world and what you do with the rest of your life. Is this hype? No.” – From one of the filmmakers
