What People Are Saying About The Bob Avakian Interviews on The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show

In this interview what really struck me was just how deep he went into governing, like how would you govern a new society, how would you actually, why it is so important to institutionalize these things so that they support the revolution. And like really going deep into that, like the way that he went into the question of victims’ rights was by starting with what laws are for. Taking it out of the personal realm, like just seeing that methodology and where he began with that, and then you follow and by the end of it, you’re like of course! Then, what does a victim’s right have to do with this like what you’re trying to figure out in this court of law. Yeah so, it also did make me want to look into the Constitution (for the New Socialist Republic in North America) more and really try to understand that.

There’s this routine description of our system as a democracy in the election coverage when it is no such thing at all. As Bob Avakian would point out, it is in reality bourgeois democracy providing a cloak for an underlying capitalist class dictatorship. I did watch the Avakian interviews. They’re really, really first rate, and among many things people can extract from them are the historical context for the rise of Christo white nationalist fascism in the country. I don’t know anybody that has spoken and written more persuasively and brilliantly about how and why we have a fascist movement in this country, the historical context for that as a response to the victories of the social movements of the 1960s and the 1970s.

“I really liked his points on how the idea of rights in our society, which is a capitalist imperialist society can only go so far, like the whole right to eat thing, and that you can exercise your rights as long as they stay within the framework of capitalism imperialism.” Read more

Thank God I went to this event and heard the Interview. It was wonderful because of the work Bob Avakian has done.

The interview brought out the soul and what’s needed for every human being to have a sense of their own equality.

He has worked on the principle of what a revolution means. No one else has done this. He’s the first one in the history of the world to do this kind of research and work.

In my country there have been lots of leaders, especially amongst the educated minority. I came from a progressive background, but nothing has been spelled out with a specific model as brought out in the interview.

I was really moved. I respect him more than any other leader. That interview opened up my eyes.
