Come and join Revolution Books in engaging in a discussion about this important broadsheet, "Revolutionary Communism at a Crossroads: Residue of the Past. . . or Vanguard of the Future?" This fall, the RCP,USA will issue a major statement, a manifesto for our times. The past several decades have witnessed truly unprecedented changes in the world. The reversal of the revolution in China following the death of Mao in 1976. . . the fall of the Soviet Union and rise of the U.S. as the sole superpower in the world. . . the emergence of Islamic fundamentalism as a major contending force in the world, ideologically and politically. . . and the radical reactionary transformations of the U.S. world role, and domestic politics. All these have posed major challenges for the international communist movement, and struggle has arisen in the movement over how to meet them. Will the movement rise to those challenges? Or will it become a residue of the past, either locked in fading dogma or in thrall to the horizons of bourgeois democracy? This new manifesto will draw out and sharply contrast the contending roads before the revolutionary movement, go deeply into the direction and implications of each, and clearly put forward a line that can lead to a revolutionary future. If you have any hope, any aspiration, for fundamental and radical social change, you must read this statement and help us get this out to every corner of society.
