A Vision of a New America
League of Revolutionaries for a New America, Detroit
Martin Luther King Luncheon, January 2019
Imagine a world where all of humankind is free from want. Imagine a world without wars. Imagine a world free of disease and environmental destruction. Imagine a world where unlimited education and cultural creativity is a natural way of life. This kind of world is possible today.
These are not the ideas of dreamers. Today, this is exactly what the real material world offers humankind. And because this is what the real world offers – these are the ideas of visionaries – those with the political will to take care of the future in the present – those willing to take the practical political steps today to build the political power necessary to construct such a new world tomorrow.
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'
