While you were out shopping for classes today, you may have encountered the beginnings of a grassroots Communist Revolution on our very own Elm Street. A spokesperson for the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, was handing out flyers near the Elm Street gate to Old Campus around 12 p.m.

“You can’t change the world if you don’t know the BAsics,” the flyers read. “There would be no United States as we know it today without slavery. That is a simple and basic truth.”

What are “the BAsics,” you ask? Apparently, it the title of a a book written by Bob Avakian, the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, which you can order online for $10 plus $3.98 in shipping, handling and tax.

Great way to subvert the capitalist system by using it.
