On the establishment of a Marxist-Leninist scientific journal


This piece is a contribution to the Pre-Convention Discussion for our 32nd National Convention. During Pre-Convention Discussion, all aspects of the party’s program, strategy, and tactics are up for consideration and debate. The ideas presented here are those of the author or authors alone, and do not necessarily reflect the positions of the Communist Party USA, its membership, or their elected leadership bodies. — Editors

Scientific socialism is the bedrock of Marxism-Leninism, and the understanding of scientific analysis is critical for a Marxist-Leninist party’s theoretical and practical work. There is a necessity of rejuvenation and application of scientific socialism within the party as a whole.

Clubs and districts of the Party require updated methods of sharing knowledge of theoretical and practical work within the contexts of their production. A scientific journal congregates veritable and trusted information within a system of information sharing, data analysis and data application. The party has historically managed and published a theoretical magazine, starting with The Class Struggle and ending with Political Affairs, and while People’s World serves as a news source, it is not a scientific journal for internal sharing of knowledge among clubs and districts.

It is high time the Party implement a system of intra-party scientific journals, that allow, with careful rigor and careful entry, sharing of programs, plans and intellectual work on a technical and scientific level, explaining the conditions and historical forces, the tactics and strategies used, and to provide both a report on successes and failures and for this intra-party scientific journal to be regulated and managed with vigorous attention.
