The communist book shop known as Revolution Books in New York City recently hosted a party and celebration for a 91-page book called Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America. The book is officially published by the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), a Maoist cult that follows the rants of Bob Avakian, a former comrade of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn in the Students for a Democratic Society. This coming Thursday, November 18, Revolution Books is hosting nationally syndicated cartoonist/columnist Ted Rall, a recent guest on the MSNBC television network who is going to read from his new book, The Anti-American Manifesto.
Rall was a guest on the Dylan Ratigan show on MSNBC, where he claimed the title of his book is “partly in jest” but added that he wants to “change the system entirely” and a “revolt” is necessary. Saying that peaceful avenues for change had been fruitless, he said that violence was a last resort.
