The question before us is: what kind of new society will replace this dying system? Will it be a police state that suppresses our struggle for survival and protects the property and wealth of the corporate class? Or will it be a cooperative society where the means of producing the abundance of food, healthcare, housing, water—and everything else that we need to survive—is owned by society, not by the corporations?
An era of revolution is upon us. Revolution in society is triggered by revolution in the economy. Today, labor-replacing technology, robots and computers, is permanently eliminating jobs and in the process of bringing capitalism to an end. How will we, the people, survive without jobs and money to buy what we need? The poisoned city of Flint, MI, shows what the corporate-government offers those whose labor is no longer needed: Nothing. People are left on their own, to live or die.
Now, more than ever, the growing movement for a democratic, peaceful, humane society based on equality for all needs a core of revolutionaries—leaders who devote their lives to uniting all who can be united around a vision of a new cooperative society. In such a society everyone’s needs will be met and everyone will have the opportunity to contribute their talents and skills for the betterment of humanity.
