Episode Summary

AIRED:

Host Tom Snyder comments That on Nov. 15th he will quit smoking for the day. He demonstrates a pair of robot toys he bought over the weekend. Bob Avakian, the chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, discusses Why He believes this country is in need of a mass uprising in the form of a violent revolution. He says it is the task of the party to politically educate the people as to what the real cause of violence, alcoholism, drug use, pornography, etc. is the capitalistic system. He says that Capitalism is a system that has long since outlived its ability to contribute to the development of society but can now only drag it down. Avakian claims that people will only fight, die and kill to see this system overthrown, not to see it continued. His plan and the plan of the party is to smash and dismantle the oppressive apparatus of the Capitalist Class System by bringing a large part of the now standing U.S. Army over to their revolutionary point of view. Avakian claims once the revolution is completed the party will assume leadership but allow no bureaucrats to organize and exploit the masses.
John Epling, in the guise of Dr. Vladimir Ivanovich Koslov The Russian lecturer, discards that disguise to extol the virtues of the freedom and liberty available in the U.S. and not available in the U.S.S.R.
