Why we can't lose Revolution Books -
The need for a radically different, liberating world urgently calls out – and yet, consideration of a solution commensurate with the scale and depth of the problem is barely regarded as a legitimate topic for serious conversation. It is for THIS reason that Revolution Books is so urgently needed, and why Revolution Books needs your support now, today: not only to keep its doors open but to grow as a widely known and visited center of a movement for revolution, the place where people find the books and the deep engagement about why the world is the way it is and the possibility of a profoundly different world.

Forward to friends, family, everyone you know.

The following appeal for funds needs to reach many thousands of people in the next few weeks.

*IF you burn with rage about the generations of youth in the U.S. and around the world who have no prospects for a future fit for human beings...

*IF you are sick to death with a society and culture that promotes and rewards selfishness, that celebrates surviving and thriving at the expense of others...

*IF your desire for something truly emancipating to emerge on this planet is great enough for you to move out of your comfort zone and focus on the biggest questions bound up with changing the world...

Then you need to be at The Riverside Church in New York on November 15 for the historic Dialogue between Cornel West and Bob Avakian, REVOLUTION AND RELIGION:
The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion.

But you need to do more. This fall, you have an opportunity to help open people's eyes to the possibility of a whole different world. Tell everyone you know that this Dialogue is happening and donate funds--dig deeply and give generously--so this event can have the impact it MUST have.

An Interview with Raymond Lotta

People need the truth about the communist revolution. The REAL truth. At a time when people are rising up in many places all over the world and seeking out ways forward, THIS alternative is ruled out of order. At a time when even more people are agonizing over and raising big questions about the future, THIS alternative is constantly slandered and maligned and lied about, while those who defend it are given no space to reply. We thought it urgent that we answer the questions and tell the TRUTH about the communist revolution—the real way out of the horrors that people endure today, and the even worse ones they face tomorrow...
