Bending History? Jacob Zumoff’s The Communist International and US Communism, –, published by Brill’s Historical Materialism Book Series and reissued in paperback by Haymarket Books, zeroes in on the relationship between the Communist International (or Comintern)—the world grouping of Communist organizations formed after the Russian Revolution—and the Communist Party in the United States. In the communist society that Marx described, the government has supreme authority through its total control of land and means of production. Because the government distributes land and property among the people, communism sets a standard of equality -- both economically and socially -- .   Communism requires that artificial restrictions are placed on the economy in order to shape it to benefit all of society, and to do this requires government authority. Complete control over the economy equates to very high government authority. Now, that doesn't necessarily mean a communist system has to be a dictatorship.

When the Communist international was founded in March , its declared purpose was to lead the working classes of the world to immediate revolution on the model of Bolshevik Russia. When the post-war crisis receded two years later, no proletarian revolution had taken place in any industrial country; yet the new organisation with its doctrine. In , Stuart Chase, in his book "The Road We Are Traveling" spelled out the system of planning the Fabian Socialists had in mind. 1. Strong, centralized government. 2. Powerful Executive at the expense of Congress and the Judicial. 3. Government controlled banking, credit and securities exchange. 4. Government control over employment. 5. In a Communist system, the central authority dictates the means and quantity of production, and places strict rules on businesses. Since there is no competition amongst firms, each is given the same amount of money and each worker is paid the same, with the same expectations of each. All businesses are ultimately owned by the government. Authority and Control in International Communism: Contrary to the American public image of international communism as monolithic, the history of communism has been one of increasingly frequent deviation and dissension - punctuated by a process of defection and expulsion of individuals and entire national parties.
