In January 2012, in an interview in Platypus, Slavoj iek launched an intellectual attack on the Revolutionary Communist Party and Bob Avakian's new synthesis of communism. In response, Raymond Lotta wrote a polemic in Revolution, challenging �i�ek to a debate. �i�ek accepted. QUESTIONS DEBATED: *Was the first stage of communist revolution, the Russian and Chinese revolutions, overwhelmingly positive, with real shortcomings�or was it at best a mixed record, or even a disaster? *Does Bob Avakian�s new synthesis provide the framework for forging a vibrant socialist society in transition to communism�or not? *Is it presumptuous to pose alternatives to the horrors of this world--or is this in fact what is needed and possible now?
