Communism has existed not only since doday. It's basic ideas are as old as exploitation and injustice. Since many centuries communism developed over many stages to a complex world outlook, also having become a science especially since Marx and Engels. Many authors contributed to writing down, developing, applying and propagating the ideas of communism, and correcting errors. This process is long not yet finalised, because humans are able to understand the wold, in which they live, better and better, and to learn from the past and present for the future.
Here the CPP makes the works of the classics of communism available for study. They shall serve both for learning the communist world outlook and for recognising the errors of the communist movement. Therefore literature study is both means for the struggle for communism and basis for further developing the communist knowledge.
That single communist authors contradict each other, argue and even treat each other with extreme hostility, is a logical consequence of the fact that communism develops. For the reader this means the necessity to think and to prove by itself over and over again, instead of following blindly a special person. Insofar our collection here mustn't be understood as partisanship for special authors, but as partial description of the totality of the communist literature.
In order to make orientation easier the works presented here are arranged following their importance within various categories. It must be taken into consideration that this arrangement is very rough only and concerns only the basic importance. Furthermore a short review is attached to each work in order to make a faster overall view possible. It can be called by clicking the category symbol.
|U||Unimportant||The work contains neither important arguments, principles or errors of the communist theory and practice nor facts important for the understanding of the history of communism.|
|H||Historical||The work contains facts important for the understanding of the history of communism, but is unimportant from the point of view of the communist theory and practice.|
|E||Essential||The work contains important arguments, principles or errors of the communist theory and practice.|
|F||Fundamental||The work is altogether a fundamental piece of communist theory and practice.|
|P||Positive||The explanations in the work are essentially correct from modern scientific point of view.|
|I||Indifferent||The explanations in the work contain certain mistakes, but are important as step on the right path of realisation.|
|N||Negative||The explanations in the work contain fundamental misjudgements, but are just therefore important in order to realise the elementary mistakes happend during the historical development of the communist theory and practice.|
The subcategory follows the main category. Multiple subcategories are possible, in which their order describes their value.
