Welcome to the revcom.us forum
We—all of us, the brand-new and the experienced—need to help build the Revolution.
A key organizing tool for this Revolution is the 5-2-6 and the slogan, Fight the Power, and Transform the People, for Revolution. For more on this, including the need, character, strategy and leadership of this Revolution, watch Bob Avakian in Why We Need An Actual Revolution And How We Can Really Make Revolution.
This forum is a place where people grapple with HOW to build the revolution in line with the 5-2-6 … what we are learning, thinking, doing, running up against … our understanding and questions in relation to The Revolution We Need, The Leadership We Have in Bob Avakian … exchanging experiences, learning from each other. This is the purpose of the moderated forum—all contributing to HOW we can bring the revolution closer and help revolutionary leadership.
Discussion and debate of these topics, getting into both agreements and disagreements honestly and with respect for each other, is part of being a revolutionary people that can take responsibility in a scientific way for understanding and changing the world.
The forum is moderated—unprincipled attacks on the revolution and its leadership will not be published. Comments that are not consistent with the 6 Points of Attention (POAs) may be edited or deleted, as will irrelevant comments.
Regularly, and as much as possible, daily, we will post selections of what you have sent us—and where necessary, editors’ comments and responses, direction on where to go to find out more, and tools you can use to organize. As we go forward, we hope to add more forum topics such as on the new communism, history of communist revolutions, history of the US, art and culture, science and philosophy, etc.

Points of Attention for the Revolution
The Revolution Club upholds, lives by and fights for the following:
1 We base ourselves on and strive to represent the highest interests of humanity: revolution and communism. We do not tolerate using the revolution for personal gain.
2 We fight for a world where ALL the chains are broken. Women, men, and differently gendered people are equals and comrades. We do not tolerate physically or verbally abusing women or treating them as sexual objects, nor do we tolerate insults or “jokes” about people’s gender or sexual orientation.
3 We fight for a world without borders, and for equality among different peoples, cultures and languages. We do not tolerate insults, “jokes” or derogatory names about a person’s race, nationality, or language.
4 We stand with the most oppressed and never lose sight of their potential to emancipate humanity—nor of our responsibility to lead them to do that. We work to win people of all backgrounds to take part in the revolution, and do not tolerate revenge among the people.
5 We search for and fight for the truth no matter how unpopular, even as we listen to and learn from the observations, insights and criticisms of others.
6 We are going for an actual overthrow of this system and a whole better way beyond the destructive, vicious conflicts of today between the people. Because we are serious, at this stage we do not initiate violence and we oppose all violence against the people and among the people.
