Revolution in US? Don't Doubt It.
Do we need a revolution and a radically different society? What is happening every day—what this system does to people, day in, day out—here and all over the world, cries out: YES, WE DO.
Is revolution really possible in a country like the U.S.? YES, IT IS.
Is there actually a strategy and method for approaching how to make such a revolution? YES, THERE IS.
Is there a group that is organized on the basis of that strategy and method, is working for such a revolution and could lead that revolution when the time is right? YES, AGAIN.
These serious questions were addressed on Sunday at the University Center by the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. And believe me, they really do want revolution. And it isn't just a minor change in the system that they are calling for, it is an all out collapse of the capitalist structure as we know it. A complete tear down, just think V for Vendetta and you'll get the general idea of just what type of revolution the RCP, USA is calling for.
In light of the current downturn in the economy and the fact that capitalism and our government had a obvious hand in it, I just thought that this was a very interesting event. Seeing as it has been over 50 years since the Red Scare and the Cold War it was interesting to see this mentality still around, and in such an aggressive way too. But these aren't your traditional communists. Well, not completely.
