Extracts from "Manifesto and Program—Constitution—Report to the Communist' International" by the Communist Party of .America, Chicago, III. Communism does not propose to 'capture' the bourgeblse parliamentary state, but to conquer and destroy It. As long as the bourgeoise state-prevails, the capitalist, class can baffle the will of the proletariat In those countries In which historical development has furnished the opportunity, the working class has utilized _the regime of political democracy for its organization against Capitalism. The older unionism was based on ttie craft divisions of small Industry. The unions consisted primarily of skilled workers-whose skill Is Itself a form of property. The unions were not organs of the militant class struggle. To,day the dominant unionism Is actually a bulwark of Capitalism, merging in TITCT Tiff / iivvjAJ iJ u51 lil AT KRYSHERS Sqju.aire : ,:;; f-l'.,^ /.-;-.

Strikes of protest develop Into general political strikes and then Into revolutionary mass action for the conquest of the power of the state. Mass action becomes political In. purpose while extra-parliamentary In form ; It Is equally a process of revolution and the revolution itself in operation. The Communist Party is the conscious expression of the class struggle of the workers against capitalism. Its aim is to direct this struggle to the 'conquest of political power, the overthrow/of 'capitalism and the destruction of the bourgeois state. ''' \- .• . The Communist Party prepares Itself for the revolution In the measure that It develops a program of Imme'diSte action, expressing the mass straggles of the proletariat. These struggles must be Inspired with revolutionary spirit and purposes. ' ' • ~ The Communist Party is fundamentally a party of action, 'it brings to. the workers a consciousness of their oppression, of the Impossibility of Improving their conditions under capitalism. The Communist Party direct! th« workers' struggle against capitalism, developing fuller forms and purposes to this struggle, culminating in the mass action of the revolution. The Communist Party shall make the great Industrial straggles of the working chxss Its major, campaigns. In order to develop an understanding of tho strike In relation to the overthrow of capitalism. ' (a) Tt,e Communist Party shall participate in mass strikes, not only to achieve the Immediate purposes of the strike, but to develop the revolutionary Implications of the mass strike. (b) Mass strikes are vital factors' In the process ont of which develops the. workers' understanding :and action for the conquest of power., " (c) In mass strikes under conditions of concentrated capitalism there la talent the tendency toward the general mass strike, which takes on a political character and manifests the, impulse toward proletarian dictatorship. -. In 'these general mass strikes the Communist Party shall emphasize the necessity of maintaining Industry 1 and the taking ; -'o;rer of /social functions usually discharged by the ^capitalists and the Institutions of capitalism. The strike must cease being isolated and passive; it must become -positive, general and aggressive, preparing the workers for the complete assumption of Industrial and social, control. ' t (a) Every local and district organization of the Party shall establish contact with industrial units In its territory, the shops, mills and mines— and ' (b) Shop Committees shall be organized wherever possible fotjbe purpose -of Communist agitation In a particular shop or'industry by .the workers colors and sizes $6.00 24 assorted sample skirts in voile, poplin and other materials, well made and .new, up to date patterns from . . ..... .,.,.... ..... ; ---- • ........ . ____ $3.50 to $5.00 The above skirts wont last: long and I may never run onto another lot as good that I can sell at these prices.

(b) Shop Committees snal pose'of Communist agitation Ir employed there. These committees shall be untied with each .other and with the Communist Party, so that the party shall have actual contact with the workers and mobilize them for action against capitalism.. The Communist Party must engage .actively in the struggle to revolutionize the trade unions. As against the unionism of the American Federation'of Labor, the Communist Party propagandizes industrial unionism and Industrial union organization, emphasizing their revolutionary Implications. Industrial Unionism is not simply a means for ?ae everyday struggle against capitalism; its ultimate purpose is revolutionary, implying the necessity of ending the capitalist parliamentary state. Industrial Unionism Is a factor in the flnal mass action for the conquest of power, as it will constitute the,basis for the Industrial .administration of the Communist Commonwealth. (a) The Communist Party recognizes that the A, F. of L. Is reactionary and a bulwark of capitalism. . ' , (b) Councils of workers shall be .organized in. the shops as circumstances allow, for the purpose of carrying on the industrial.union strucgle in the old unions, uniting anfl mobilizin^-the militant elements; these cb.uneils to be unified in a Central Council wherever possible. (c) It shall ba a major task of ti.u Communist Party to agitate for the construction of a general industrial union organization, embracing the I. W. W., W. I. L. U., independent and secession unions, militant unions of the A, F. of L., and the unorganized workers, on the basis of the revolutionary class struggle. The Communist Party shall encourage movements of the workers In the shops seeking to realize workers' control of industry, whil.e indicating their limitations under .capitalism;, concretely, any movement analogous to the Shop cjtv .Stewards of England, These, movenienta (equally directed against trie union • .bureaucracy) should be related to the Communist Party.
