This is the "Constitution" of the Communist Party USA. It is a full and complete outline of the plan for communist rule in America. I think it is worth a read.

Some points of interest.

In the preamble it states

The living standards of workers and the natural environment on which life depends are under constant attack due to the drive for maximum profits inherent in capitalism. Our party fights for jobs and economic security, a decent and rising standard of living, peace, justice, equality, a sustainable environment, gay rights, health care, education, affordable housing,  the needs of seniors, democracy, and a fulfilling life for everyone, with socialism as our goal. Only through the abolition of the capitalist system and the socialist reorganization of society can exploitation of human beings by others, and the evils of oppression, war, racism, environmental degradation, and poverty be ended. We seek to build a socialist society which puts people and nature before profits.

All sounding good and progressive, but it is also dependant on a misunderstanding of capitalism. In this model it is assumed that capitalism is inherently the cause of these ills but completely disregards any human element. It makes the bad guy the system there by allowing the remedy to come from a new system.

Anyone who understands human nature knows that all of the above evils are manmade and not solely the result of a quest for profit. In fact history shows that when the quest for profit is open and all who work and strive are rewarded for their efforts the ills mentioned above find a way of resolving themselves, or those under the weight of these evils find a way to overcome. History also shows that as socialist regimes restrict the building of wealth thru taxes, suppression, and redistribution we find the power concentrated in the hands of a few who grow corrupt with this power. As we read further in this document we will see that this is not just a natural progression but it is written into the ideology.

ARTICLE II - Principles of Organization Section 1

The system of organization of the Communist Party is based upon the principle of democratic centralism, which means that decisions and policies are made through democratic procedures, and that once a final decision is made, all members are obligated to carry it out.

That didn't take long; you can see the guiding ideal is a lack of dissent, once the decision is made dissent is over. This is a textbook definition of "The tyranny of the majority"

Section 2

Each Party body is subordinate to the next higher body, with central authority vested in the National Convention, the highest body of the Party, which not only has the authority to act on all aspects of Party policy and activity, but elects the national leadership to carry through its will and decisions between conventions.

This too is classic in that the people elect the local dog catcher but the rulers are selected by "The Party"

Section 3

After a thorough discussion in any club, committee or convention, decisions are arrived at by majority vote. All members, including those who disagree, are duty bound to explain, fight for and carry out such decisions, as long as they do not conflict with national policies and decisions.

No dissent allowed. They list rules for complaints but if they fail, and history show they do, then no further dissent is tolerated. And history shows that once power has been centralized, following these rule have dire consequences when they fail to sway the leadership. This is when trips to “re-education” camps are made.

ARTICLE VI Section 1

A member has the right, within the Party organization, to express openly and uphold his or her opinion or differences on any question as long as the Party organization has not adopted a decision.

Again dissent is ended with the tyranny of the majority.

Section 2

Members shall continually strive to improve their political knowledge and their understanding of Marxism-Leninism, to take part in the discussion of Party policy, to initiate activities, to work of the aims and policies of the Party, and to seek to win new members to its ranks. They shall also read, circulate and help improve Party publications. All members shall circulate the press and make work with the press central to their mass activity.

It is your duty to read and understand all party propaganda and to disseminate this to everyone you meet... It is an understanding of the consequences of Marxism-Leninism these people need.

Section 3

It shall be the obligation of all Party members to struggle against all manifestations of male supremacy and discrimination against women, and to fight for the full social, political and economic equality for women.

If you read Marx you know that marriage is one of the major tools used in the suppression of woman. Therefore it is the obligation of all party members to destroy marriage. And now you know why every year you hear a report on how much a stay at home mom would make if she were a CEO.

Section 5

All Party members who are eligible must belong to their respective labor unions. If no union exists at a Party member’s place of employment, he or she shall strive to organize, or help to organize, a labor union whenever possible.

Unions have been a key tool in the recruitment and brainwashing efforts of communist for decades.

Section 8

The Party shall give full aid in the acquisition of United States citizenship to those of its members who, because of unjust and undemocratic laws and practices, are deprived of this right.

Any person who illegally crossed into this nation, whether to escape poverty, to flee punishment, or to do harm to America or her people is not being "deprived of this right" to citizenship!


All accused persons concerned in disciplinary cases, except publicly self-admitted informers and provocateurs, must be notified of the charges against them, shall have the right to appear, to bring witnesses, including non-members if agreed to by the trial committee, and to testify. The burden of proof shall be on the accusers.

Now we see why the USSR was so big on getting confessions.

I deal with and argue with Seattle communist every week and when you try to point out the failures of communism in the past they always refuse to acknowledge that any communist government ever truly existed, most times after singing the praises of Mao or Lenin or Che Guevara. Their best argument is that a true communist government never had a chance, but we see here the very ideals they strive for are irrefutably tied to oppression and the silencing of dissent.
