Our articles in this issue of Rally, Comrades! are designed to shed light on the political turmoil throughout the country, most specifically, in the mid-term elections. Revolutionaries play an indispensable role in the fight of our people to disentangle themselves from control by the capitalist rulers. The re- port from the LRNA Standing Committee “Third party: Indispensable Step for Our Class” explores the significance of the inevitable movement toward a third party and its importance for the development of our class.
“Revolutionaries Must Teach Class Politics” addresses the necessity for revolution- aries to engage in the fights before them, playing midwife to class awareness as it struggles to be born. “Foreclosures: Reasons, Results, Remedies,” analyzes the causes of the foreclosure epidemic and the necessity to nationalize the banks in the interests of the people. “Corporations and tate Merging to Save Private Property,” shows the purpose and outcome of the grow- ing corporatist state, and why nationalization is the battleground for the development of class understanding.
“Global Shifts: The Middle East in U.S. Geostrategy” examines the process of economic and political polarization on a world stage, and draws the threads that connect the interests of those who have little or no stake in the capitalist system in the U.S. with those in the rest of the world.
A ruling class that can no longer rule in the old way is dangerous indeed. It must fight the rising movement and transform society in order to protect private property in the face of a vast economic revolution that threatens private property itself. Like every article that we publish in Rally, Comrades!, the LRNA statement on the FBI raids shows that revolutionaries must disseminate a vision of the new society made possible by the economic revolution and show the people they are engaged in a fight for the political power to build that new society.

The age-old vision of a world without scarcity, without exploitation, class domination, organized violence, and stultifying labor has been the dream of millenia. The new completely socialized labor-eliminating means of production ... sets the basis for its realization. Now human history can begin, the light of the individual shining in the full brightness of liberated life, that can only be realized within true equality and cooperation: communism, a cooperative society.'Without Vision, the People Perish'
