This is a celebration – as well as a renewed and urgent call for people to support the bookstore. Right as now we face a moment of stark contrast between our hopes and dreams for a better world and the stark reality that great catastrophe looms as fascist regimes rise, and as we confront environmental disaster–Revolution Books embodies the potential bright future for humanity.
For 40 years Revolution Books has fought for revolution and a different future for humanity. And right now we face a moment of stark contrast between our hopes and dreams for a different future and the stark reality that great catastrophe looms as fascist regimes take root here and around the world, as we confront environmental disaster, as the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock is now advanced to 100 seconds to midnight.
Revolution Books embodies the potential bright future for humanity. You feel this when you first walk through the door and find the literature, poetry, history, science, art, and the revolutionary theory for a radically different world. You experience programs and engagements with us and with each other that percolate with emancipatory possibility. What you feel at RB is precious and especially so in these dark times, when a beacon that lights the way forward is so greatly needed.
Revolution Books is alive with the scientific understanding that a different and better world is possible. RB is the political, intellectual, and cultural center of a movement for an actual revolution and that is why it is a unique, incredible bookstore—a resource for the world. The animating heart of the store is the framework for unleashing the revolutionary potential of humanity: the breakthrough in scientifically knowing and radically changing the world through revolution, the new communism developed by Bob Avakian. Avakian emerged from the 60s in Berkeley, and is a leader who never gave up asking the hard questions of the road forward to human emancipation and developing the path to that future.
