Official Anthem of the CPDA: The Internationale


Fulfilling the CPDA's One Year Plan. Details are provided here:…
Dear comrades of the CPDA,

As part of a book reading with a comrade in the CP-USA, I've recently been enjoying Lenin by Lars T Lih. The book is an interesting perspective on our movement's arguably most famous comrade. It tracks Lenin's political career, beginning in the 1890s until his death. Lih lays forth the proposal that Lenin was devoted to a "heroic scenario" for the proletariat and the Russian people. From the early, underground era when Russian Social Democracy was fighting for full legal expression to the 1917 Revolution (a point I have yet to reach in my reading), Lih constantly brings us back to Lenin's vision of "a different way" for Russian society under Tsarism. Where the old efforts of secret societies like Narodnaya Volya had failed to bring true change to the autocracy, Lenin envisioned an organized and truly networked organization for the Russian Left.

As one read's through the book, one shares in Lenin's optimism and expectations of the mass strikes of the mid-1890s, shares in his frustrations and disagreements with other Leftist figures such as Martov or Akselrod, and understands his admiration of the success of the German Social Democratic Party. Truly, Lih's book is also a reasonable education in the Russian Social Democratic movement, as it was this path that eventually led to the Bolshevik/Menshevik split in 1903.

I will keep you all up to date on my thoughts of the book as I continue reading. Or, better yet, I would suggest getting a copy of this book for your own use and join in the journey. It will not be boring, that much I promise you.

In solidarity,

CPDA General Secretary

Does anyone know where a beginner to communism can go to learn about it in full?
The-Necromancer Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
The Marxist Internet Archive is a very good start on Marxist authors. Mind you, it's a rather large website and there are many, many authors and their writings. Don't be discouraged by this, please. It's well worth your time.

The bare-bone basics of Marx and Engels are The Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital. The latter is a tough read, however. You may also find Lenin's The State and Revolution enlightening.

In all honesty, getting a "full" education in the Communist movement requires years of reading and discussion, not to mention commitment. I would recommend trying to contact someone in your area's Communist Party or Communist Youth League (if there is one) for introduction into a study group. Granted, depending upon the country you live in, there may be more than one Communist Party. Things get a tad tricky with that, although you can Google your nation's CP or CPs if you want their background.

The best advice I can give about learning is: READ READ READ!, Don't Be Afraid To Ask Questions, and Talk With Other Communists. We all learn from each other, and while we don't always agree, everybody is better off for actually discussing things.

For a very concise "beginner" notion:

Thanks for the info mate. There are a few communist-related parties in my region, I might make some inquiries. Cheers.

I strongly advise holding off contacting any political party until after you've learnt more about Communism. A lot of these groups actually represent a very specific subset of Communism and some have some very nasty histories like the recent exposure of the (Trotskyist) Socialist Workers Party's cover up of rape by one of its leaders.

A lot of them also have strange ideas, in the 80's many British Communist parties were split over supporting Iraq and Iran during there very bloody war. Basically be furrow before you even think about signing up.

Running for office during the Party Congress is the typical fashion.

Because when it all comes down to it, we are all equally human. 
It is only when we start putting labels on ourselves and using them where things get messy. Sure, we are different, but aren't we all still human? An external label does not matter. Rather, we are to judge on what a person does, contributes and their character.

To quote an old song by Sting:

"We share the same biology, regardless of ideology..."

Basically, you are putting forward the idea that we are to judge others on their individual merit as human beings. In the Marxist perspective, there is a place for individual traits, yes. But it is the sum of these traits, the sum of mankind itself, that we focus on. The application and integration of the individual to the collective good, and the interactions between individuals for the collective whole. To reference your Putin quote, it is dangerous to to encourage individual exceptionilism no matter how well the intentions.

Not that I'd say I'm a great admirer of Mr. Putin, frankly.

I think he has the right idea, just scrap the anti-gay laws. 
As I have said, we are human. This is regardless of any label we give ourselves. And that includes who we love, as long as it within limits (pedophilia is fucked up, no doubt). 
Yes, I find myself at home with you all. Admirers of equality and rebels against corruption. We are equally human, regardless of the label, as long as it doesn't directly harm another. 
Yes, even as a man who gravitates to men (of age, of course), I still have quite a bit of respect for the guy. He gives us a good lesson in humility. Often what I see so many around me fail to have. 
I am blind to class, I don't see anyone as higher than another. Wealth does not make you more powerful, rather, I see it as a source of corruption. As well as this, I see greed as the largest sin in humanity. As soon as one sees himself more deserving, more entitled or more valued than another, he becomes corrupted. This is where the beauty of communism steps in, making people people, reminding one another that they too are human and were born in the same way. 
Needless to say, I love communism and its ultimate goal- equality. Regardless of status or label. we are all equally human.

Daniel Lichter, sociology professor at Cornell University.
"Mixed-race children have blurred America’s color line. They often interact with others on either side of the racial divide and frequently serve as brokers between friends and family members of different racial backgrounds, but America still has a long way to go.”

Wesley Clark, U.S. general, ex-NATO Supreme Commander, talking about the NATO bombing of Serbia, 1999.
“Let’s not forget what the origin of the problem is. There is no place in modern Europe for ethnically pure states. That’s a 19th century idea and we are trying to transition into the 21st century, and we are going to do it with multi-ethnic states.”

Peter Sutherland, EU Commissioner and head of the World Trade Organization.
“We still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others, and that’s precisely what the European Union, in my view, should be doing its best to undermine.”

Yigal Ben-Nun, Israeli Writer.
"Arab migration has been the best thing that’s happened to Europe in the past 50 years. Arabs in Europe are a fact of life. It’s time we started to accept that there’s no way to block the migration of Chinese, Pakistanis or Arabs to Europe. … It’s true, Europe won’t be what it once was, but that’s a good thing. … [The] more migrants from Africa and Asia who arrive, the better off Europe will be. Sooner or later, their children and grandchildren will marry into veteran European families and change the demographics of their countries. Europe will be different.”

Barbara Spectre, US Born actress.
“Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural, and I think we’re going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. […] Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies that they once were in the last century […] It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode…”

Mona Sahlin, Party Leader of the Social Democrats.
“The White Majority is the Problem”
“The Swedes must be integrated into the new Sweden , the old Sweden will not return.”

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, military ruler of Libya.
"Europe runs the risk of turning black from illegal immigration, it could turn into Africa.
We need support from the European Union to stop this army trying to get across from Libya, which is their entry point.
At the moment there is a dangerous level of immigration from Africa into Europe and we don’t know what will happen.
What will be the reaction of the white Christian Europeans to this mass of hungry, uneducated Africans?
We don’t know if Europe will remain an advanced and cohesive continent or if it will be destroyed by this barbarian invasion. We have to imagine that this could happen but before it does we need to work together.”

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

...not entirely sure what point you are trying to make here, aside from vague protest to multi-cultural societies...
