You Want to Radically Change the World-You Have to Make Revolution, and Establish a Revolutionary State Power -But, as I've been emphasizing, the other side of the contradiction (in which the economic base is ultimately and fundamentally decisive) is the fact that the way to bring about radical, qualitative changes-in the economic foundation (or base), and in the political-ideological superstructure-is opened and is made possible only by decisively defeating, and then dismantling, the stranglehold of political and ultimately military power that is exercised by the ruling class of the presently prevailing system, and replacing this with a new, revolutionary state power. That cannot be underlined enough times. We can come up with all the ideas we want for change in society and the world-and others can come up with creative ideas which can make a contribution, especially if they're recast in a correct framework, a correct understanding of reality-but if that doesn't get translated into a movement which actually, when the conditions emerge to make this possible, succeeds in defeating and dismantling the repressive organs and the overall institutions and
instrumentalities of power of what is now the prevailing system, there is no radical change that is going to occur. It's as basic as that. Read the article in Revolution newspaper.
