Greetings, fellow atheists!
We’re aiming to spread the word broadly about the following program, which aims to help spark a society-wide debate about the possibility of a viable and visionary revolutionary future for humanity.
Bob Avakian is an outspoken and unapologetic atheist. One of his recent seven talks at http://www.bobavakian.net is entitled “Communism and Religion: Getting Up and Getting Free – Making Revolution to Change the Real World, Not Relying on ‘Things Unseen,’” and he is about to come out with a book entitled, “Away With All Gods! Unchaining the Mind and Radically Changing the World.” And he has been sounding the alarm about the Christian Fascists, whose power has greatly increased under the Bush administration. (Esther Kaplan’s “With God On Their Side” is an excellent book on the subject.)
We want to reach all sorts of people who are wrestling with how messed up the world is today, and whether anything can be done to fundamentally change things. We hope to see you a week from Sunday at the event with your opinions and questions and agreements and disagreements, and please send your ideas, questions, and criticism to reenvisioningsocialism at yahoo dot com.
Sunday, March 9th - 4:00 p.m.
Revolution Books presents:
“Re-envisioning Revolution and Communism:
WHAT IS BOB AVAKIAN’S NEW SYNTHESIS?”
Agonizing about the direction of society? The world? Think communism is dead, but hope that another world is possible? You need to hear this. Presentation followed by discussion of how Bob Avakian has re-envisioned socialism which is both visionary and viable. How he has tackled a whole realm of questions, including how a new revolutionary power could maintain power and maintain it as a power worth keeping.
