Revolution and Religion

 

WHY do outrages and horrors like the Charleston Massacre—as well as the ongoing drumbeat of murders by the police and all the other horrible oppression of Black people—go on over and over again? Can this be solved by reform—by "realizing the ideals of America"—or do we need an actual revolution? What kind of society IS this? How long must we put up with it? What can we do to end this madness and emancipate humanity? Start getting into all this by watching REVOLUTION AND RELIGION: The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion; A Dialogue Between CORNEL WEST & BOB AVAKIAN More

Charleston, GodDamn!

Check out coverage >>

QUESTION: WHY IS IT THAT 150 YEARS AFTER THE END OF SLAVERY BLACK PEOPLE ARE STILL BRUTALIZED, TERRORIZED, AND MURDERED BY RACISTS IN AND OUT OF UNIFORM? And what does the fact that it is have to do with the atrocity carried out in Charleston?

For answers, go to:

»  Yes, this society was NOT designed to give Justice to Black and Latino people. But why is that so—And what must be done about it?

»  Communism and Jeffersonian Democracy, by Bob Avakian

WWW.REVCOM.US/REVOLUTION NEWSPAPER brings alive a scientific analysis of major events in society and the world—why they are happening, how different events and developments relate to each other, how all this relates to the system we live under, where people's interests lie in relation to all this, how revolution is in fact the solution to all this and what the goals of that revolution are, how different viewpoints and programs relate, positively or negatively, to the revolution that is needed, and how people can move, and are moving, to build toward that revolution. Revcom.us/Revolution is the guide, the pivot, the crucial tool in drawing forward, orienting, training, and organizing thousands, and influencing millions—fighting the power, and transforming the people, for revolution—hastening and preparing for the time when we can go for the whole thing, with a real chance to win.
