    If they are capable of organising them selves then they don't need leadership.

    people who are corrupt or just want power for there own selfish reasons are indistinguishable from people who genuinely want to help.

    also many, if not all leaders become corrupted by power, and there is no way of telling who will and who wont beforehand.

    even if someone only want to lead fro the good of the people, they will be disconnected from the situation of the workers, and so less able to make good decisions.
    At the same time it is in there material interest to consolidate there power and to reduce the power and influence of the workers.

    Being removed from the dicision making process is dissempowering for the workers, and it alienates them from there work. they become less able to make decisions for themselves and more dependent on there leaders.

    so leaders are not only unnecessary, they are harmful.

    It's not a matter of faith, it is impossible for the working class to hold state power.
    1. the working class is defined by there relation to the means of production, if the workers hav control of the means of production then they cease to be the working class.
    2. the state is a set of hierarchical, top down, institutions which facilitate the rule of a minority class. by definition the state is incabible of being controled by the overwhelming majority of the population.

    no the other hand i am convinced that the evidence shows that people are capable of organising themselves without leaders, you aparently do not understand the concept.

General Secretary of the CC of KKE

KKE has always exposed, especially after 1991, the
deception concerning the ceaseless development of
capitalism, competitiveness and productivity with the
supposed common benefit for workers and capitalists
alike. It spoke of the inevitable economic crisis in all
the capitalist economies. It predicted the

On the Question of Revisionism

by Charles Xavier on 29th August 2009 at 19:10
Written by William Z. Foster.
[COLOR=#000000][FONT=verdana]As usual, in the optimistic atmosphere of the upward phase of the economic cycle, super-heated soothsayers appeared to sing the glories of the American capitalist system. And this time to an extent never known before. The United States, they said, had finally overcome the contradictions of capitalism. There would be no more economic crises or mass unemployment. Mass production and high wages were the magic formula. Not Marx, but Ford,

It is indisputable that a revolution is impossible without a revolutionary situation.

by Charles Xavier on 11th February 2009 at 21:09
[INDENT]…it is indisputable that a revolution is impossible without a revolutionary situation; furthermore, it is not every revolutionary situation that leads to revolution. What, generally speaking, are the symptoms of a revolutionary situation? We shall certainly not be mistaken if we indicate the following three major symptoms:
(1) when it is impossible for the ruling classes to maintain their rule without any change; when there is a crisis, in one form or another, among the “upper classes”,
