How Rally, Comrades! Explains Our Struggle – A reader shares experiences
“My best use of the Rally is giving individual articles to people when we are talking about politics. It means I have to study the articles and make “talking points.” For instance there are several general things that people discuss and if I know in the article where to make a link, I can take it out of my pocket and point right to it saying “this article really helped me understand…here you can have it, I have another.”
I also give people Rally articles as they refer to discussions we have had in the past. For instance, my acupuncturist and I were talking and she wanted more information on the Civil War, what were the economic questions behind it and so forth. I was able to give her the article “Analysis of Forces” (January 2016), with advice that this gives more depth to our discussion. This article I still use a lot. So I gave another person I know the article “European Union and Social Democracy” (May 2016), when they asked me about the socialism of Western Europe. Another was interested in Black Lives Matter and I gave her “Fascism, the US Presidential Elections,” (which is also a very good article for many other questions). The articles on Flint (July 2016) are excellent for giving out after Flint, water or public health (single payer) meetings.
I try to carry a few Rally’s with me to give to the people I work with, who have more questions or want to discuss matters more thoroughly.
The Rally articles are very helpful to me. I frequently say to myself, “I am so lucky to have access to them.”

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'
