Cornel West & Bob Avakian - Video of Revolution and Religion the Debate
Democracy and Class Struggle says it is good to agree with Bob Avakian on some questions like religion even if we disagree with him on major questions like his supposed new synthesis.
Taking his own analogy of the salad bowl for the way people use religion nowadays we are of the view that Bob Avakian's new synthesis is a salad bowl for example combining John Stuart Mill's view of freedom with that of revolutionary communism is eclecticism gone mad.
Post Maoism on the national question and the new synthesis of Bob Avakian should be rejected whether is comes from RCPUSA or other pretenders to the Maoist cause in USA.
Democracy and Class Struggle also restates that our opposition to Avakianism is not personal, in fact we have been made aware of many good personal qualities of Bob Avakian but is purely political and we will struggle with him and others over the strategy for revolution in Imperialist countries.
