Three Programs: The Way to Socialism, Antiauthoritarianism and Working-Class Movement

Published in 1969/1970

In the first three issues of Revolutionärer Weg it was necessary to orient the building of the new revolutionary workers’ party to Marxism-Leninism. In No. 1, Three Programs – Three Documents of Revisionism and Opportunism, proof first was provided of the revisionist degeneration of the Communist Party of Germany, KPD, and of the necessity for building a new Marxist-Leninist party. No. 2, The Way to Socialism, was a reckoning with the revisionist blind alley of “the struggle for fundamental reforms” and the possibility of a “peaceful path to socialism.” Through today these first two books furnish a guide to the struggle against modern revisionism.

Besides revisionism, the young organization had to deal with the antiauthoritarianism that was carried into the Marxist-Leninist movement from the disintegrating petty-bourgeois student movement. To achieve this purpose, No. 3, Antiauthoritarianism and Working-Class Movement, was published in 1970. Modern antiauthoritarianism today is one of the chief methods used by the system of the petty-bourgeois mode of thinking to corrode the justified and organized struggle of the youth. This is an important handbook for any rebellious young person!
