PRINCIPLES OF MARXISM-LENINISM
A STUDY COURSE
By W.B. Bland.
"Systematic reiteration and patient explanation of the
so-called 'generally-known' truths is one of the best methods of
educating.... comrades in Marxism."
(Stalin, Economic Problems of Socialism in the USSR; Foreign Languages
Press, Peking 1972; p.9)
The aim of Communist Party Alliance is to build a political
party in Britain which can lead the working class to establish its political
power and a planned socialist society.
The party which can carry out this historic task can only be
one based on the political principles discovered and developed above all by Kark
Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Lenin and Josef Stalin.
In recent years the socialist societies which had been
constructed in a considerable part of the world have been replaced by capitalist
societies. In consequence, one often reads the claim that 'socialism has failed'
or that 'Marxism is dead'.
In fact, so strong and popular was the socialist society
which had been established in the Soviet Union that it could be liquidated only
from within, by revisionists who posed as 'modernisers' of Marxism-Leninism, but
in reality proceeded to distort socialism in such a way that after many years an
open counter-revolution could be carried out without major public opposition.
The lesson is clear: EVERY MEMBER OF THE MARXIST-LENINIST
PARTY WHICH WE BUILD MUST BE SO THOROUGHLY GROUNDED IN THE PRINCIPLES OF
MARXISM-LENINISM THAT ANY LEADING FIGURE WHO MIGHT IN THE FUTURE TRY TO DEVIATE
FROM THESE PRINCIPLES WOULD INSTANTLY EXPOSE HIMSELF TO THESE MEMBERS AS A
RENEGADE AND TRAITOR.
No doubt in the course of organising classes around this
syllabus, experience will suggest improvements in its content and Communist
Party Alliance would be pleased to receive suggestions for improving future
editions of the course.
