Thinking about revolution

The attached Call for Democratic Revolution (also online at was written to help people discuss how to build a revolutionary movement, and it includes a vision of a new world that revolution can make possible. This Call addresses the practical question, “If I want to help build a revolutionary movement but I still need to make a living and support my family, what should I actually do, starting today?”

The Call is meant to be read by everyone who knows something is very wrong about our current society—i.e. most people—whether they are activists or consider themselves “political” or not.

Please read this Call and make copies to share and discuss with your friends and neighbors. And please let me know what your thoughts are about it.

Thank you.
