Long live the Communist International

of Lenin and Stalin !


The Communist, or Third, International (COMINTERN) was founded in early 1919 by Lenin as an international revolutionary proletarian party. The COMINTERN consisted of about 70 communist and socialist parties in Europe, Asia, and America. Consequently, it deeply influenced the political life of many countries worldwide, particularly in the USA.

Long live the Third International, the leader in the worldwide movement for working class emancipation.

 

 


 

J. V. STALIN

to the CPUSA:

"Comrades, the Comintern is not a stock market. The Comintern is the holy of holies of the working class. The Comintern, therefore, must not be confused with a stock market."

"The American Communist Party will not perish.

It will live and flourish to the dismay of the enemies of the working class."

(Speech against American factionalism)

Historical formation of the

Communist Movement in the USA

 

The origins of the Communist movement can be found in the left wing of the Socialist Party and in the industrial movements. The radical spectrum of groups and individuals did not ultimately set Communist policies, especially after the first turbulent years, but they did provide the first wave of American Communists.

The Socialist Propaganda League, located in Boston with the support of the strongly pro-Lenin Latvian-American socialists, was the first to send out a call for American Socialist adherence to the principles of the Bolshevik Revolution. The Friends of the Russian Revolution, or Friends of New Russia, formed at the end of 1917, and the American Bolshevik Bureau of Information formed in 1918.

A substantial minority, led by the large and prestigious Russian Federation, called for the immediate abandonment of the SP.

 

Some parties sought membership in the Comintern, and each was told that Moscow would not favor one over the other and that they would have to unify. The Comintern reserved the right of final approval of Party leadership. (see above: Letters of the ECCI)

 

 

 

Stalin charactererized the situation in the CPUSA as follows:

"Both groups are guilty of the fundamental error of exaggerating the specific features of American capitalism. You know that this exaggeration lies at the root of every opportunist error committed both by the majority and the minority group. It would be wrong to ignore the specific peculiarities of American capitalism. The Communist Party in its work must take them into account. But it would be still more wrong to base the activities of the Communist Party on these specific features, since the foundation of the activities of every Communist Party, including the American Communist Party, on which it must base itself, must be the general features of capitalism, which are the same for all countries, and not its specific features in any given country. It is on this that the internationalism of the Communist Party is founded. Specific features are only supplementary to the general features. The error of both groups is that they exaggerate the significance of the specific features of American capitalism and thereby overlook the basic features of American capitalism which are characteristic of world capitalism as a whole. Therefore, when the leaders of the majority and the minority accuse each other of elements of a Right deviation, it is obviously not without some measure of truth. It cannot be denied that American conditions form a medium in which it is easy for the American Communist Party to be led astray and to exaggerate the strength and stability of American capitalism. These conditions lead our comrades from America, both the majority and the minority, into errors of the type of the Right deviation. Owing to these conditions, at times one section, at others, the other section, fails to realize the full extent of reformism in America, underestimates the leftward swing of the working class, and, in genera!, is inclined to regard American capitalism as something apart from and above world capitalism. That is the basis for the unsteadiness of both sections of the American Communist Party in matters of principle.

I think, comrades, that the American Communist Party is one of those few Communist Parties in the world upon which history has laid tasks of a decisive character from the point of view of the world revolutionary movement. You all know very well the strength and power of American capitalism. Many now think that the general crisis of world capitalism will not affect America. That, of course, is not true. It is entirely untrue, comrades. The crisis of world capitalism is developing with increasing rapidity and cannot but affect American capitalism. The three million now unemployed in America are the first swallows indicating the ripening of the economic crisis in America. The sharpening antagonism between America and England, the struggle for markets and raw materials and, finally, the colossal growth of armaments -- that is the second portent of the approaching crisis. I think the moment is not far off when a revolutionary crisis will develop in America. And when a revolutionary crisis develops in America, that will be the beginning of the end of world capitalism as a whole. It is essential that the American Communist Party should be capable of meeting that historical moment fully prepared and of assuming the leadership of the impending class struggle in America. Every effort and every means must be employed in preparing for that, comrades. For that end the American Communist Party must be improved and bolshevized. For that end we must work for the complete liquidation of factionalism and deviations in the Party. For that end we must work for the reestablishment of unity in the Communist Party of America. For that end we must work in order to forge real revolutionary cadres and a real revolutionary leadership of the proletariat, capable of leading the many millions of the American working class toward the revolutionary class struggles. For that end all personal factors and factional considerations must be laid aside and the revolutionary education of the working class of America must be placed above all."

remark of the Comintern (SH):

The Communist International .....

( and all its documents !! )

belongs to the world proletariat

and not to the world bourgeoisie !

Help us to give all the documents back to all oppressed and exploited peoples all over the world !

Long live the world revolution and the dictatorship of the world proletariat -

that will confiscate all the property of the Comintern !

 

Simply and solely the Archives of the Comintern are the property of theComintern's successor - our Comintern (SH) – and to nobody else!

 

We, as the leaders of the worldrevolution, are determined to go to any length fetching them back to provide the world proletariat with the weapons of the priceless treasures of the Comintern`s documents!

We need these documents of the Comintern for the preparation of the world revolution - this is part of our most important tasks of the present international class-struggle!

In the first line we have to unmask the world bourgeoisie who tries to abuse and falsify the Comintern Archives for the purpose of anti-communism ! The world proletariat shall find out the entire truth and shall defend the truth ! We need your support to fulfill this task!

Comrades all over the world !

Translate and spread the Comintern-documents in YOUR countries !!

Long live the Comintern of Comrade Lenin and Stalin !

Long live the Comintern (Stalinist-Hoxhaists) !

 

 

 

 

Enver Hoxha:

"The Comintern, the Third Communist International - led by Lenin and Stalin, adviced the Albanian communists to find the right way to struggle, that way to the Marxist-Leninist ideology - to unite with the working class, to tie in the masses of the people, gaining new strength from them like Antäus and to create the Communist Party under the right, concrete conditions. We Albanian communists just won because we followed this way."

( from: "The Democratic Front, led by the party, is the great organisation of unification and political education of the people" - Albania Today", No, 4, 1979)
