Documents of the Party of Labour of Albania 31 – 40

These pages include documents and decisions of the Central Committee of the Party of Labour of Albania and other state organisations of the Albanian state. Also there are articles that were originally published in ‘Zeri i Popullit’, the official newspaper of the CC of the PLA.

I apologise if some of the reproductions are a little messy. The paper used in the 1960/70s does not age well and I hope that the ‘staining’ doesn’t cause any problems. As far as I’m concerned the text (which, after all, is the most important) is still clear and legible.

The working class is the principal force in the production of material blessing. It is the most progressive and the most revolutionary class of the society, whose historic mission is to overthrow capitalism from its foundations and to destroy it, to put an end to any exploitation of man by man, and to build socialist and communist society.

  1. About the book written on Poland, it should be noted that the author would later turn against communism.

    • I didn’t know much about the author of the book on Poland and therefore nothing about how he might have changed his point of view since publication in 1983. Unfortunately, I am not totally surprised. The history of the International Communist Movement (ICM) is littered with those who were either outright traitors to the cause (hiding behind fine words) or were merely weak in the face of adversity. You can see that from the history of the Party in your own country.

      However, that doesn’t detract from the points made in the document. I can see nothing I disagree with in the basic analysis of the events in Poland and the part played by the Solidarity organisation. In my study and investigation of the ICM over the years I have learnt that even those who eventually prove themselves renegades to the movement can still produce revolutionary material as they are brought along by the movement in general, in whatever country and period they might be living.

      • You are right. I’ve read some parts of that book. It is good. In the end it is just like the case of revisionist Todor Zhikov. When he made an interview in 1997 he basically said that computers will create socialism. But of course as you’ve said we can still learn something from these people.
        Can’t fault the Albanians too much though. If they tried to resist then they would have been isolated without trade.
        “The history of the International Communist Movement (ICM) is littered with those who were either outright traitors to the cause (hiding behind fine words) or were merely weak in the face of adversity.

          • Oh, I thought you were talking about some stuff during the war. In my country they always say that the return to market economy brought prosperity to the country. And you know, I have a feeling that if I talk to people about serious stuff, people would just pretend to care. Because they have to think about their daily lives, how to earn money, how to not get fired and so on, so why concern themselves with the possibility of a return to a planned economy, or whatever ? It’s always about “rice, clothing, food, money” (“cơm áo gạo tiền” in Vienamese). And you know, in university we study Marxism Leninism, but you just can’t help noticing people being attentive in those classes not because they really think it’s of value, it’s just they think that the teacher has authority over others because they know the idea, that people in leadership positions do well because they know the idea. It’s just so pragmatic. At least that’s what I feel. Also they always say that under a planned economy there is always corruption due to people’s greed, so it will always fail. Guess what, in the market there is also corruption. So during university I began to read left-y stuff, like Chomsky, you know, because he criticizes US and stuff. But I could not help but notice that when asked for a solution, he could not provide anything good. Then later on I began to read some of Marx, just tried to read whatever I could during free time, I thought that the guy knew what he was talking about. Then after that is some of Lenin, Stalin and eventually Hoxha, who wrote some stuff about the Soviet Union and China which from what I know, no one else writes about. I know that in my country they just say that Gorbachev failed to go to market economy that’s why Soviet Union failed. When compared with Hoxha’s you can really see the difference, that there is really something behind the scene. And Albania even had a period of self-reliance, which although eventually did not succeed, showed that they were serious. One cannot help but wonder, that if done right, would they have preservered? And my country honestly does not have much more infrastructure than that of Albania. People just say that market economy is better, but from what real existed socialism showed, we know that it can do better.

          • I wasn’t aware that ‘Marxism-Leninism’ was still being taught in Vietnamese universities. Don’t really know how that would be possible as when I lived in Vietnam (for 6 months) in 2001 I found it difficult to find books about the history of the Worker’s Party and it’s history, let alone the classics of Marxism. Admittedly I was looking for material in English but that same material wasn’t obviously available in Vietnamese, not where I looked. The FLPH had morphed into Thé Giói and it was difficult to find people who even understood the concept of Socialism.

            (Marxism-Leninism above is in parenthesis as it was also, supposedly, taught in the education system of the Soviet Union up till 1990 but well before then Socialism was a thing of the past in Soviet society and capitalism was in control.)

            Revisionist societies were always more concerned with form rather than content – and you don’t judge someone by what they say but by what they do. ‘Communist’, ‘Workers’ and ‘Labour’ parties exist throughout the world but their activities are far from Socialist.

            The fact a sizeable proportion of Vietnamese society accept this (and a weak Marxist-Leninist leadership in the Party – for both internal and external reasons, as ever) shouldn’t surprise us.

            Vietnam was a capitalist country when I was there, and saw few, if any, of the vestiges of Socialism.
