In this wide-ranging interview, Avakian argues why nothing short of revolution will deal with the howling problems in the world; he provides deep analysis on this most recent election as well as the illusion behind elections under this system; he speaks to the lies told about the history of communism; the real potential for revolution in this country and the strategy for that revolution; what the goal of this revolution is and in particular what the breakthroughs are that are concentrated in the new synthesis of communism that BA has brought forward. He also talks with passion and science about what has kept him on the revolutionary road for decades now despite great sacrifice and at great personal risk.
