Join Revolution Books in welcoming Raymond Lotta to UC Berkeley as he presents a talk on "Everything that You've Been Told About Communism is Wrong! Capitalism is a Failure, Revolution is the Solution!" You need to hear Raymond Lotta- Because you’ve been lied to about communism. You need to hear Raymond Lotta. Because society does not have to be this way. We can create a world in which there is no exploitation. A world in which people can live cooperatively and solve problems collectively. A world where individuals can flourish. But wait a minute…isn’t communism a totalitarian nightmare? Don’t all the textbooks and experts and memoirs agree? No, you’ve been fed distortions about communism… By the same people who told you that the war in Iraq was about weapons of mass destruction… And by liberal and even some progressive scholars who don’t want to see the world turned upside down. This is about the nightmare and horror that is THIS system. This is about the future of humanity and the future of the planet. You need to hear Raymond Lotta Because the new generation needs to learn about the actual and emancipating history of socialism in the 20th century. And we need to go further and do better in the next round of communist revolution. Raymond Lotta is bringing revolution to Berkeley and other campuses this Fall. Indicting this whole system of capitalism-imperialism as utterly unreformable and unredeemable. Talking about the why the future of communist revolution is both viable and desirable because of the leadership and ongoing role of Bob Avakian. If you yearn for a radically different world and want to learn about why communism will be a far better world…you need to hear Raymond Lotta If you want to defend this system and uphold the distortions about socialism, you should there be there too…because Raymond Lotta is taking on all comers. Raymond Lotta is a Maoist political economist, author of America in Decline, writer for Revolution newspaper. His books have been reviewed in Foreign Affairs and China Quarterly; and he has been interviewed on the BBC and Agence France-Presse.
