“The Nature, Role, and Work of the Communist Party” first appeared on CPUSA.org on February 27, 2007. Read it on CPUSA.com.
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the nature, role, and work of the Party. Sounds like a mouthful and it is. Hopefully, it will give everyone, to continue the metaphor, something to chew on.
The outcome and implications of the mid-term elections will figure prominently in this discussion how could it be otherwise?
Our countrys political terrain has shifted. The American people expect a change in course. What is more, the labor-led peoples movement, whose energy, organization, and political clarity were decisive to the elections outcome, is now turning its attention to legislative battles.
We will do likewise, but with this added wrinkle: we will also give attention to growing the Party and its press in this new context of struggle.
