"These lively conversations between Bob Avakian and Bill Martin probe a wide range of issues: the place of ethics in politics; the Maoist experience in China; sustainable agriculture and today's lopsided economic development; the post-9/11 agenda of the U.S. ruling class; Marxism and homosexuality; secularism and religion; and animal rights. A major theme running through this dialogue is the relationship between materialism and ethics."--Jacket

4 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing a revolutionary communist voice to the current discourse about god, atheism, and morality, this treatise demystifies religious belief and examines how, even in its most progressive interpretations, religion stands in the way of the emancipation of humanity. Addressing numerous questions—such as Is believing in gods actually harmful? How has Christianity served for centuries as an ideology of conquest and subjugation? Why is the Bible Belt in the U.S. also the lynching belt? and Why is patriarchy and the oppression of women foundational to so many religions?—this critique takes issue with long-established traditions and suggests the necessity to fully rupture with all forms of superstition and embrace a truly scientific approach to understanding and transforming reality
