Revolution and Religion:
The Fight for Emancipation and the Role of Religion

For those who attended the event, for those who have watched the Dialogue on line, and for those who have yet to experience this moment . . .

b&cThis Dialogue took place days before a profound sea change with tens of thousands pouring out onto streets, bridges, tunnels, onto train tracks and freeways. People everywhere are asking what kind of society is this that would murder and criminalize our youth, what kind of system is this that denies millions of their humanity, what would it take to change this fundamentally, and what kind of world is possible.

This exchange was so rich in its content, its warmth, its concern for all of humanity and its vision of how the world could be different that it deserves repeated, careful re-watching on a large screen and in good company.

Come together, bring friends, and let's sit back and take it all in.

Phoneme Publishers of Delhi, India has republished Democracy: Can't We Do Better Than That? by Bob Avakian. This is a welcome event. It brings Avakian's text—the most comprehensive Marxist treatment of democracy—to a much wider audience in India and elsewhere. For this new printing, Raymond Lotta has written a special introduction.

Is democracy, or "true" democracy, the pinnacle of human social organization? Is the fundamental goal of socialist revolution the broadening and deepening of democratic institutions? Bob Avakian argues that there is something far more subversive of the status quo, something far more liberating, than democracy. Avakian's landmark work, originally published in 1986, takes on heightened relevance in today's world.

Revolution Books has a limited number of copies available for $20.



Away With All Gods! Unchaining the Mind and Radically Changing the World by Bob Avakian, published by Insight Press, is now available as an e-book!

"Away with All Gods! is a powerful and erudite critique of religion and superstition and a rousing call to place our trust in reason and the scientific method....Unusual for an atheist work and in marked difference to works of Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins Avakian went further to explore the way in which religion is used to sustain the status quo and as a reactionary force by political power mongers...He stands against not only religion and superstition but for reason and science and shows us what an alternative way of living can really be like. More importantly he shows us the revolutionary potential of finally doing away with all gods and what such a new world could look like."
