Fulfilling the CPDA's One Year Plan. Details are provided here: communism.deviantart.com/journ…
Dear comrades of the CPDA,

We have, in this current American election cycle, a most interesting choice. Mr. Bernie Sanders, self-described Democratic Socialist. He is, naturally, running under the Democratic ticket, but that is only a matter of practicality in the American political system.

In Mr. Sanders, we have an outspoken critic of the American system and it's failings. A man who had been there during Civil Rights, Vietnam, and so many other things. He has proven himself a dedicated man to the Left. And now he is attempting to run for President. That being said, how should we on the Left respond to his bid? Frankly, he's more in line with our politic than any Democrat could hope to be. He's certainly charismatic. He's had years of practical experience in government, which could be seen as a positive or negative depending on who you ask. Frankly, Mr. Sanders seems to be a breath of fresh air in regards to Presidential bids.

That being said, there are some things that are troubling about Mr. Sanders. Over the decades, he has taken a slow retreat from his fierce third-party mentality. The fact that he is campaigning for the Democratic nomination is, in ways, a culmination of this. He has also been a continuous supporter of American imperialism, having voted predominantly in favor of funding the war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan during the previous decade. He's very pro-Israel. Today, he seems to be more about reforming the Democratic Party rather than outright challenging it as he once did.

There is much to like and dislike about Sanders. Personally, I believe he is a better choice than Mrs. Clinton. Personally, I like the notion that a Democratic Socialist can run and possibly even win the nomination, if current data is to be believed. Personally, I want him to be America's next President, even if he's not a genuine Marxist. With all of that, I remain skeptical of just how far, or how successful, the policies of a Sanders administration could reach. By no means would I expect any great political upheaval should Sanders even get the Democratic nomination. To say it bluntly, I am enthused but reserved. After all, we have seen such possibility before.

So, comrades, I would ask: What are your thoughts on Bernie Sanders? Whether you are in America or following from abroad, if you have an opinion, we'd like to hear it.

In solidarity,

The-Necromancer
CPDA General Secretary.

You do realize that Marx woudl probably view the vast majority of his followers as the worst hypocrites of all time as they explicitly lied to and manipulated the masses to overthrow the existing order to instead replace it with theirs. The Russian Aristocracy was just replaced with Bolshevik, Bourgeois Russian and Jewish intellectuals (This is not anti-antisemitism, any simple search into the background of Marxist revolutionaries then and today will yield a very high proportion of ethnic Jews) who instead of using religion or ideology (which is a completely false claim anyways) to placate the masses, the communists by way of propagating the idea of revolution and hyper egalitarianism placated the masses into thinking their lives were getting better while in reality, their lives were gettign worse. Even now, you people are still sheep. Your Cultural Marxist (although calling them marxists is stupid as their beliefs have nothing to do with what Marx believed) feed you absurdities, they tell you of the patriarchal, white, hetero boogieman and you must fight them for equality, when in reality, they tell you these lies in order to make you follow them, to give them, the intellectual ELITE power. Anyone who truly begins to think for themselves will easily realize that modern Gender theory, 3rd wave feminism, cultural Marxism is complete and pure nonsense. Its own aim is to again replace the existing structure of society comprised of White Christian Males and families with a society of non gendered non white Atheists because those people will follow the Marxist professors and intellectuals. And instead of fighting inequality, you actually just create a reversal situation in which white, male Christians become second class citizens and "victims" are granted special rights and privileges. All under an elite of Marxist Intellectuals who want power and wealth, not equality.
The only reason Cultural Marxists exist is because one, economic application of MArxism has consistently ended in utter failure, and two because it sounds revolutionary so it appeals to young people.

As opposed to the Monarchists, such as yourself, who would call for an elite based on who's family is the most influential or traditionally powerful?

Or, for that matter, the land owners?

Really, I can't even begin to describe why your position is so blatantly facile...

Well, elites will always rule a society. sorry but a utopian society of no class and no leaders is impossible and a delusion. And having powerful people running the society is not necessarily a bad thing. We want the most qualified, and best people to run the show. The issue is how to make sure we get the best possible people. With liberal democracy and libertarian capitalism, you get corporate giants who care only about money. With Left wing, liberal socialist states you have bureaucrats and intellectual demagogues who basically hate everyone.
why not instead have the people who are born into a long line of people in their position, being taught from an early age the rightful traditions, custom,s and ability to rule?

Most qualified?!

Ever hear of Carolos II of Spain?
Edward II of England? Or King John? Henry the VIII?!
Emperor Liu Shan of China?
The Roman Emperor Nero?

Yeah, the list goes on and on, really. Very confidence-inspiring inheritors of "divine right"...

I wonder what kind of branch of Communism is the most common in this group.

Among members, most are usually Marxist-Leninist, although some degree of Maoism is usually fairly popular.

Does this group also provide place for people that are not as die-hard into communism, but more into socialism?

Absolutely! We encourage all whom are communist or are interested in radical-left ideology to join this group.
