In 1919, Ludenberg, the left-wing leader of the American Socialist Party, founded the Communist Party of America.
In 1921, the U.S. Communist Party was forced to go underground for activities.
In April 1923, the U.S. Communist Party restored its legal status and merged with the U.S. Workers’ Party. Ludenburg served as the General Secretary of the U.S. Communist Party Central Committee.

In December 1943, after the Tehran Conference, Browder, then General Secretary of the Central Committee of the U.S. Communist Party, believed that the world had entered an era of "long-term trust and cooperation" between capitalism and socialism, and advocated the realization of including the big bourgeoisie. Unity within.
In May 1944, Browder announced the dissolution of the American Communist Party and established a non-party organization, the American Communist Political Association, and served as its chairman.
In 1945, Foster, the former General Secretary of the Central Committee of the American Communist Party, rebuilt the American Communist Party.
In the 1950s, when McCarthyism prevailed, the U.S. Communist Party once again turned "underground", and its main activities were among industrial workers and blacks.

The Constitution of the Communist Party of America is the organization and all of the Communist Party of America at all levels The basic rules and regulations that party members must abide by have the effect of the supreme party law and the fundamental law. On June 15, 2014, the Constitution of the Communist Party of America was amended at the 30th National Congress of the Communist Party of America.
The nature of the party
The Constitution of the Communist Party of America, adopted in 1987 and revised in the 30th National Congress of the United States in 2014, stipulates the nature of the party:
The American working-class party serving the American working class. The composition of the American working class is multi-racial and multi-ethnic. Its members are men and women; there are young and old; both working workers and unemployed workers; both organized and unorganized workers; including homosexuals and heterosexuals It includes both native-born workers in the United States and immigrants; both urban workers and rural workers, including all workers engaged in a variety of physical and mental labor, whose population accounts for the majority of American society.

It is also a political party for women, young people and all other working people.
Contents of the Party Constitution
Since the mid-1990s, the domestic situation in the United States has undergone important changes, which are manifested in the continuous anti-monopoly sentiment of the people Intensified, the labor movement continued to break new ground, and the domestic right-wing forces were forced to switch to a defensive position. In the fall of 1994, the former chairman Crane was defeated at the AFL-CIO meeting, and the fighting spirit John Swinney was elected as the new chairman. This is the first time since the merger of the two major trade unions in 1955, the right-wing leadership that has abandoned the labor struggle and advocated class reconciliation has been ousted from the highest level of the labor movement in the United States. The anti-communist clause was deleted from the AFL-CIO charter, and the entire labor movement showed a tendency to turn to the left. From November 30 to December 3, 1999, the "Seattle" incident was like a thunderstorm that profoundly affected the labor movement in the United States. U.S. labor unions, environmental protection, human rights and other organizations launched demonstrations involving tens of thousands of Americans to protest against the World Trade Organization. Put profits above human rights, labor interests, and environmental protection. The "Seattle" incident showed the growing fighting spirit of the American labor movement. This incident opened up new horizons for the future development of the American labor movement. The massive parade held by the people of California to make Caesar Xaviz’s birthday a state holiday showed the people’s determination to oppose racial discrimination. The resolution passed by the AFL-CIO at Vitchs is obviously anti-imperialist in nature. The active participation of Boeing engineers in the strike shows that white-collar workers occupy an important position in the increasingly informatized and knowledge-based American economy, and they play an important role in the class struggle. All this shows that right-wing forces are retreating, new mass movements are emerging, people's movements are at a new stage of development, and anti-monopoly, anti-multinational corporations, and anti-racism alliances are gradually forming. The U.S. Communist Party has formulated a strategic strategy to expand this alliance, expand the concept of left-wing center, working class and class union, and unite more oppressed people. These new changes in the domestic political situation and the deepening of the theory and practice of the socialist road by the U.S. Communist Party have prompted the U.S. Communist Party to revise part of the party constitution.
Content of amendments
On May 17, 2001, the Communist Party of the United States revised the party constitution adopted in 1987 before the 27th National Congress of the Communist Party of China after thorough deliberation, discussion, and debate. . The most revised part is the preface of the party constitution, that is, the part of the party constitution on the nature of the American Communist Party, guiding ideology, and goals of struggle. The new party constitution keeps the name of the party, the Communist Party of America. Reaffirmed that "The Communist Party of the United States is a working class and a party that serves the working class. It is based on the struggle and progressive tradition of the American working class in its history and is dedicated to improving the interests of the working class, especially the oppressed people." In this revision, "the party's guiding ideology is the scientific principle of Marxism-Leninism" that was not explicitly stated in the 1987 party constitution was added. The question surrounding whether the party uses Marxism-Leninism or the principles of scientific socialism as its guiding ideology has caused controversy in the history of the U.S. Communist Party. The wording of this amendment to the Party Constitution not only adheres to Marxism-Leninism, but also emphasizes adherence to its "scientific principles." Attitude. At the 27th Party Congress held shortly thereafter, the U.S. Communist Party reiterated that the theoretical basis of its worldview was Marxism, and issued a call for the further development of revolutionary Marxism in a creative way. The U.S. Communist Party believes that the founders of scientific socialism have never regarded their theoretical creation as all-encompassing, but merely as the basis for further analysis of broader issues. The U.S. Communist Party specifically pointed out that this scientific theoretical method is urgently needed to solve many new problems faced by the current international labor movement.
The 1987 party constitution stipulated that "the party's goal is a socialist society." This time it is revised as "The party strives for the interests and rights of the people, and the ultimate goal is to replace the capitalist society with a socialist society and establish a government led by the working class with a broad people's foundation." This revision has made clearer stipulations for the party's goals, combined the party's daily struggle with the long-term goal of building socialism, and summarized the general characteristics of the future socialist society, making it more operational.
The new party constitution demonstrates the essence of capitalism in detail, analyzes the space that the capitalist system cannot give democracy to full play, and specifically points out that "democracy is limited in a capitalist society." "The government, politics, economics, and legal systems of capitalist countries serve a small group of people at the expense of the interests of most people. The operation of the government is controlled by the wealthy, multinational companies, and their agents. The working class passes through The establishment of organizations and struggles have won some political reforms and improved certain quality of life. But as long as multinational corporations are in a monopoly position, the results of the struggle of the working class are not safe, and they must continue to fight to defend the results they have achieved. When humanity enters In the 21st century, democracy in the United States is in danger of increasing monopoly capital, and political power is concentrated in the hands of fewer and fewer people. Basic power, including voting rights, has also been threatened by the extreme right. The Communist Party is calling for the defense and expansion of workers. It is a necessary prerequisite for American social and economic progress.” Based on the above analysis, the U.S. Communist Party believes that “only through the abolition of the capitalist system and the establishment of a socialist system can we eliminate the exploitation of people. A society that eliminates oppression, racism and poverty.” The socialist system serves the interests of the people rather than the private interests of capitalist companies. Under the socialist system, the working people are in the leadership position of the government. "Socialism is a great expansion of democracy. The Communist Party promotes socialist democracy with the expanded "Bill of Rights": the right to work in accordance with the labor union wage standard until the university level is free. Education, free medical care, decent housing, child care system and old age safety."
The United States is a country with a deep democratic tradition. The American Communist Party has always believed that socialist construction should be based on the American democratic tradition. Take democracy as the core and essential feature of socialism. Before and after the party constitution was revised, the U.S. and the Communist Party conducted very active discussions on the issue of the "Socialist Bill of Rights." Party Chairman Weber reminded the whole party not to turn the "Socialist Bill of Rights" into a cliché, nor to turn it into a new carol. The U.S. Communist Party believes that the term "Socialist Bill of Rights" reflects two major issues, namely, the U.S. Communist Party’s attitude towards democracy and the issue of the socialist road. The struggle for democracy is the cornerstone of revolutionary Marxist theory and politics. This red line runs through the works of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. The U.S. Communist Party believes that the struggle for democratic rights is the core of the class struggle. Without a continuous struggle for democracy, the working class will be separated from its allies and will not be able to play a leading role. This issue is related to the "Socialist Bill of Rights." Closely linked together. The U.S. Communist Party believes that only the image and content of socialism can be completely democratic in order to guide the American people on the path of socialism. The image of socialism in the 20th century is not democratic enough, so it cannot be said that socialist democracy itself is many times higher than the most developed capitalist democracy. Although it can be said with certainty that socialism has created the best conditions for the development of democracy, the process of deepening and expanding democracy is by no means spontaneous. On the contrary, the ruling party and people’s organizations must attach importance to the development of democratic forms and practices to adapt them to the special political background of socialism under construction. The U.S. Communist Party reminds the whole party that socialism is a movement for the interests of the vast majority of people. Without a correct attitude towards democracy, American democratic traditions, and the essence of socialist democracy, it is impossible to imagine guiding millions of people in the United States to adopt socialism. Road. This is also a summary of the experience and lessons of the Soviet Union’s failure to handle the socialist setbacks caused by the Soviet Union’s failure to handle the relationship between democracy and socialism.
The new party constitution stipulates that the U.S. Communist Party "realizes socialism through the expression of the majority’s peaceful desire, and the result depends on the people’s ability to prevent the U.S. ruling class from using violence to block the people’s will." "The U.S. Communist Party cherishes its fraternal connection with the U.S. Marxist-Leninist youth organization, the Communist Youth League, and highly appreciates the role of young people and students in the antitrust alliance. The party and the Communist Youth League lead young people to participate in the establishment of a more humane socialist In the future, all those who pursue peace, democracy, equality, oppose militarist aggression, oppression, racism, and who aim to improve the living standards of the working class will maintain close unity."
As the largest left-wing political party in the United States, the U.S. Communist Party has always been committed to achieving its political propositions through a peaceful path. In the late 1980s, the U.S. Communist Party decided not to propose its own party’s candidates for the presidential election in view of the restrictions imposed by some states that were not conducive to the election of small parties, and supported the Democratic Party against the Republican Party in terms of election strategy. The U.S. Communist Party believes that the U.S. Republican Party is a right-wing party, which includes extreme right racists and anti-working-class forces. If the Republican Party wins the election, it will be the biggest threat to democracy. The main goals set by the U.S. Communist Party for the 2000 election are: First, to end the majority of Republicans in the U.S. Senate, and to prevent Republicans from occupying a majority in the House of Representatives. Second, defeat George Herbert Walker Bush and any other presidential candidate in the Republican Party of the United States. Third, defeat the far right of the Republican Party as much as possible in the states and the country. Fourth, let the Communists control as many local government institutions as possible across the country, and use elections to recruit new party members, strengthen the party's strength, and promote party building. Focusing on the above goals, the U.S. Communist Party mobilized and organized a large number of workers to participate in elections, mobilized thousands of voters across the country, united and united all left-wing and center forces, formed a broad anti-right-wing coalition, and formed a "broad multi-racial labor and people’s organization". Electoral Front". Although the 2000 election ended in the defeat of the Democratic Party, the U.S. Communist Party expanded its influence and expanded its ranks in the process of participating in the election.
(Note: The Communist Party of the United States stated in an article in April 2020 that its political stance is not to support the Democratic Party of the United States, but only to support "ideas and policies for individual candidates." We support ideas and policies over inpidual candidates)
The U.S. Communist Party specifically emphasizes in the new party constitution: The U.S. Communist Party is an intrinsic part of the American labor movement.” The party constitution states that “we cherish us and constitute the main body of this movement. ——The connection between the working people and the trade union. We cherish our background rooted in this movement. In action, we seek to maintain unity with the AFL-CI and other independent trade unions as much as possible, and strive to improve the leadership of organized labor in the anti-monopoly alliance. We seek to improve the ties and solidarity between American labor unions and labor unions in other countries in the world, and take a higher level of unity among global labor and their organizations as the only effective way to defeat the growing oppression of global imperialism. The Communist Party of the United States is an intrinsic part of the world communism and the labor movement." In the face of the new situation of the rising popularity of the people's movement in the country at the turn of the century, the Communist Party of the United States has rethought the concept of class and class struggle in the past. The Communist Party of the United States believes that class is not. A deadly concept, but an open and flexible concept. There is no pure form of class struggle in the world. The U.S. Communist Party further believes that social democrats are not the enemy of the party, but the party’s allies, and will be the future U.S. Communist Party. The center of work. In other words, the U.S. Communist Party recognizes that only by uniting more friends can it break isolation and play an important role in the political arena.
In terms of organizational principles, the U.S. Communist Party still emphasizes democratic centralism. However, the interpretation of democratic centralism is different. The expression “democratic centralism guarantees the unity of the will and actions of all party members and leaders” in the 1987 party constitution is deleted. The new party constitution interprets democratic centralism as “the party’s Decisions and policies are generated through democratic procedures, and once the final decision is made, all members must implement it.” Add “Unity is the most powerful weapon of the working people in the struggle to improve their own interests”. Delete collectivism is the work of the party The basic concept of work style is replaced by "collectivism is the basic work style of our party. Through collective discussion and action, we apply the best possible plan to improve the interests of the working class."
Reform of the party’s membership procedures
The new party constitution simplifies the party’s joining procedures, and the party membership conditions are deleted. Applicants must have at least two well-performing party members agree, and the applicant’s district club must agree to the party’s terms before joining the party. New party constitution It is stipulated that any party member, club, regional and national organization can accept the applicant’s application and quickly forward the application to the applicant’s club or regional organization. The club or regional organization should promptly discuss this. And as far as possible, arrange for one or more party members to communicate with the applicant. Unless the club and regional organization learn that the application is fake, or accepting the applicant may endanger the party’s organization and party’s goals, the applicant should be promptly Notify him or her that he or she has been accepted as a party member and arrange to join a party club. In areas where there is no organization or where there is no club, new members should be transferred to a higher-level committee with jurisdiction. Arrange new It is the responsibility of the club or the jurisdiction of the higher committee for members to participate in party education, mass work, and other activities.
The new party constitution simplifies the procedures for party members to transfer organizational relationships in the country, and stipulates that “party members from a state When moving to another state, it should usually be done before changing the address, but in most cases it will be done within 30 days of moving to the new address. The letter of introduction is transferred to the new area by the regional organization through the National Committee or at the same time to the new one. Regional organizations and national committees.” The new party constitution deletes the letter of introduction and requires a collective evaluation opinion of the comrades involved in the transfer organization. Deletes the new regional organization that only accepts the transferred party members as members after receiving the letter of introduction. Regulations.
Currently, the main problem in the U.S. Organizational strength is too weak, and its influence on the American political arena is too small. As a result, the U.S. Communist Party has never been able to integrate into the mainstream of society, nor can it be talked about seeking political power. Although in January 1995, the chairman of the party, Hall, announced at the U.S. Communist Party’s New Year celebration that “the number of members of the U.S. Communist Party is increasing rapidly,” on the whole, the strength of the U.S. Communist Party is weak. Party members, the U.S. Communist Party has not officially announced, the estimated numbers are very different. Some say there are 15,000, some say about 7,000, some say about 4,000, and some say 1,500, but no matter which number is higher To be precise, for the American Communist Party, if it wants to play an important role in American society and realize socialism through the ballot box, the party's strength is far from enough. Therefore, the further revival and development of the party’s ranks is currently one of the most important issues facing the Communist Party of America. In the United States, the most powerful capitalist country in the world today, the anti-communist and anti-socialist ideology is deeply rooted and the anti-communist forces are particularly strong in the internal environment; in the external environment of the drastic changes in world socialism in Eastern Europe and the low ebb of the communist movement, new developments should be developed. Party members are particularly difficult. In response to this situation, the U.S. Communist Party attaches great importance to the issue of party building. It regards expanding new members of the party and enhancing the party’s influence as the top priority in the hearts of U.S. Communist Party leaders, and prioritizes party building work in the party’s central work. The measures taken by the U.S. Communist Party first simplified the party membership procedures in the provisions of the party constitution, and simplified the procedures and procedures for party members to transfer organizational relationships based on the high mobility of American occupations. Second, the U.S. Communist Party adopts new strategies in party building:
First, the party uses all channels and opportunities to expand the party’s ranks, and uses new technologies and media, including the Internet and the party’s television program "changing The United States" waits to expand the party's ranks, actively develop the readership of the party newspaper, and expand the distribution of party publications.
Second, when expanding the party’s ranks, the party’s leadership must be more instructive, realistic and creative. For the construction of the Communist Youth League, the party should contact young people, understand the peculiarities of youth work, and master the ability to contact and help them.
Thirdly, gradually improve the party’s work style to make the party a public organization and a mass party.
Fourth, the expansion of the party's ranks is closely linked to the labor movement. In terms of ideology, the whole party must clearly realize the positive interaction between the expansion of the party's ranks and the vigorous development of the labor movement, and that mass party building is directly related to the party's strategic goal of moving toward socialism.
The new party constitution cancels the establishment of the National Council and the National Supervisory Committee in the organizational structure. Regarding the rights and obligations of party members, the new party constitution deletes the term "criticism and self-criticism" and replaces it with the term "critical assessment of the party's collective work and own behavior." It is proposed that "The National Committee and its leaders should take the initiative to carry out critical evaluation and self-evaluation at all levels in order to improve their work." In the party’s management disciplinary procedures and defense clauses, “management” is replaced by “help”, and “management work helps party members correct shortcomings and errors” to “the party provides help to comrades to help them correct shortcomings and errors”. These changes are the response of the U.S. Communist Party based on the democratic calls of some members of the party. In the history of the U.S. Communist Party, some party members used the signs of criticism and self-criticism to attack each other and split the party. Some party members believed that the original party system suppressed democracy within the party and suppressed the full expression of party members’ personal opinions. One purpose of this revision of the party constitution is to give each party member the space to fully express his wishes, allow different opinions to exist, and promote democracy within the party.
At the turn of the century, the industrial structure, class structure and social structure of developed capitalist countries changed. How the communist parties of developed countries adjust their strategic strategies in accordance with the changes in this situation in a relatively weak situation is a problem that needs to be solved urgently in the current international communist movement. This requires the Communist Parties of all countries to adhere to Marxism-Leninism, have the courage to innovate in theory, combine the universal principles of Marxism-Leninism with their own national reality and the characteristics of the times, and constantly open up new areas of Marxism, answering Marx, Engels, Lenin, etc. New questions for which no one could provide answers. In this sense, the revision of the party constitution and the adjustment of strategic tactics of the U.S. Communist Party are undoubtedly of positive significance. But how effective is the party constitution revision will bring about new problems, such as lowering the criteria for party membership, will simplifying party membership procedures will lead to a decline in the quality of party members, etc., cannot but arouse people's attention, of course, all of this will depend on the future. Practice to test.
Discussion on Socialism
On January 6, 2016, the People’s World website of the Communist Party of the United States published an article by Susan Weber, "Everyone is discussing socialism, but in the end What is socialism? "Proposed insights on the true meaning of socialism, essential commitments, meaning to American society, and ways to realize it, which aroused concern. For more than half a year, People's World continuously published a series of articles, setting off a discussion about socialism. The discussion not only refuted wrong views and propositions, but also proposed new understandings and opinions.
1. Criticizing the one-sided understanding of socialism and defending socialism as the ideal of human The basic requirements play an important role in improving the conditions of the working class and the ability to fully participate in economic and political life. The socialism fever triggered by Sanders shows that the American people are tired of political and economic realities and are willing to think about the feasibility of democratic socialism. The accusation that conservatives are full of prejudice and hatred of socialism is a one-sided emphasis on the failure of socialism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe without mentioning the existence and development of socialist countries such as China and Cuba. It is pointed out that the setbacks of the Soviet Union and Eastern countries cannot prove the invalidity of socialism. Socialism is not a fantasy, it has practical implications. In a book titled "Guide to Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy," Rick Nagin, a correspondent of the People's World and a trade union movement, emphasized that socialism is the power of the working class.
The website of the Communist Party of America published an article by the Secretary of the International Department of the Communist Party of the United States, Emil Schippers, "Imperialism in the 21st Century Also Affects Americans". The imperialism of the 21st century-the rise of neo-liberal imperialism, its performance in the world, its influence, and how to deal with neo-liberal imperialism. Judging from the content reflected in the article, the U.S. Communist Party has thoroughly studied the impact of neoliberal policies on the lives of American workers, and through its criticism of neoliberalism, it has exposed the exploitation of the American working class by major American capitalists, thereby inspiring the American working class. Oppose the various unfair policies of the US government, unite in social struggles, and strive for fair rights and reasonable economic benefits.
Current status of political parties
The Communist Party of the United States was founded in 1919. In 1938, there were 75,000 party members. Today, there are only 3,000 party members in the United States. The U.S. Communist Party is still an extremely active political organization, especially among workers and college students.
The National Headquarters of the Communist Party of America is located in an eight-story building in Manhattan, New York. The full-time staff working here are either seniors, college students, or even high school students. The current party chairman Sam Weber, who has been the chairman of the U.S. Communist Party since 2000, said: "We have different cultures. We no longer use the term general secretary, but chairman. It is easier for Americans to understand." The 65-year-old U.S. Communist Party Vice Chairman Jarvis Tainer said: "Many people say that a socialist America may be beautiful, but it is impossible to achieve. We should convince them that this is not a fantasy, but a struggle that must be persisted every day. , The principle it follows is very simple: stress people over benefits."
Unlike the Communist Party in most European countries, it still adheres to the orthodox line and adheres to the principle of "democratic centralism" that seems to be eternal. . The goal of the U.S. Communist Party is very practical: it is to create obstacles for the "outright capitalists" in the U.S. Republican Party. Tyner said enviously: "When I see what's happening in China, I think socialism has a chance to govern here."
The biggest challenge facing the U.S. Communist Party now is that most members are old. , The alternate strength is insufficient. The goal of the U.S. Communist Party is to strive for the realization of socialism in the United States in the "foreseeable future."
Communism (English: Communism) is a kind of political belief or social state. Today's communism is based on the ideas of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels Thought. Communism advocates the elimination of private ownership of the means of production, elimination of the privilege of distribution of labor results, and the establishment of a system of no class exploitation, collective production and sharing of labor results, and the basic principle of everyone's comprehensive and free development. Communism envisages that all future class-exploiting societies will eventually transition into a communist, classless, exploiting and oppressing society in which everyone is equal and where everyone can distribute according to their needs. The implementation of communism requires every member of society to have a highly conscious collectivist ideology, and the glory of labor is the universal consensus of the society.
Communism is the idea of eliminating social barriers and class exploitation and oppression by eliminating the private ownership of the means of production, so as to liberate all mankind from oppression and poverty, and establish equality for all without priority distribution by privileged classes A system of privileges for the fruits of labor, a government without private ownership of the means of production, no class oppression, and a society where the whole society collectively produces and enjoys the fruits of labor on an equal basis.
Marx has fully studied the development of human history, economy and science and technology, and found that human society is based on material production. The current low level of productivity makes material scarcity, and the economic status of different people determines different people. The social status of people, the economic relationship between people determines the form of the entire society, law, morality, etc. The superstructure is determined by economic status, is a reflection of people's social status, and embodies the will of the ruling class.
Historical conditions of communist society:
1. Social productivity is highly developed, science and technology are extremely developed, labor productivity is unprecedentedly increased, labor time is greatly shortened, and social products are greatly enriched.
2. All private labor and small-scale production have been replaced by socialized mass production. All members of society have equal ownership of the means of production, and commodities and currency have lost the symbol of profit and disappeared.
3. Due to the enormous abundance of social products, the differences in the economic differences between workers and peasants, urban and rural economic differences, mental labor and physical labor value differences have been eliminated.
4. Due to the changes in the mode of production and the demise of the old social and economic division of labor, every member of society will gain free and comprehensive development.
5. The whole society has planned and mass customized production according to the needs of different people.
6. Implement the principle of distribution according to their abilities and needs (here refers to "people’s needs as the only basis for the distribution of labor products", people’s social civilization is greatly improved, and social morality Very high, low-level taste has disappeared, any greedy desire is consciously resisted).
7. Class exploitation, class distinctions disappear, "machine enslavement of people" is replaced by "management of things", and the state apparatus will die out on its own.
8. With the demise of all economic oppression and slavery systems, all unequal moral concepts and religious opium in class society will also die out.
9. The family of privately owned economic individuals has disappeared. After the elimination of gender, wealth, age, and race priority, the relationship between the sexes has become a purely private matter without social interference. The upbringing and education of minors Will completely become the public welfare undertakings of the society (the family is essentially a kind of privately owned individual economic unit, in the agricultural society is both a living unit and a production unit, responsible for education, pension, defense, training and other functions, with the industrialization The development of its functions is gradually replaced by various welfare and social institutions and public services. As a result, the production and living scale of private households have become smaller, and their production capacity and livelihood security have become more and more socialized. Eventually, their social unit functions in a communist society will Die completely).
