Getting into the BAsics: "A Worldwide System of Exploitation and Oppression".

Discussion of Chapter 1 of BAsics, from the talks and writings of Bob Avakian. No experience needed. Come listen or share your favorite quote, and dig into why:

* "There would be no United States as we now know it today without slavery. That is a simple and basic truth."

* "The essence of what exists in the U.S. is not democracy, but capitalism-imperialism and political structures to enforce that capitalism-imperialism. What the U.S. spreads around the world is not democracy, but imperialism and political structures to enforce that imperialism."

* "These imperialists make the Godfather look like Mary Poppins."

* "No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, who the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."

BAsics is a new book of quotes and essays from Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. BAsics concentrates more than 30 years of Avakian's work on everything standing between humanity and complete emancipation into a single concise book of essential quotes and short essays.

"You can't change the world if you don't know the Basics."
