党与抗日民主政权

(一九四一年四月十五日)

THE PARTY AND THE ANTI-JANPANESE
DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT
    April 15, 1941

     II OPPOSE THE CONCEPT OF “RULING THE COUNTRY BY THE PARTY”
    二反对“以党治国”的概念
    假如说中国是一个半封建的缺乏民主的国家,则反映到党内的是:共产党员一般缺乏民主的习惯,缺乏民主政治斗争的常识与锻炼。
    假如说西欧共产党带有若干社会民主党的不良传统,则中国党或多或少带有一些国民党的不良传统。某些同志的“以党治国”的观念,就是国民党恶劣传统反映到我们党内的具体表现。党提出三三制的政策之后,在我们晋冀豫区,曾遭受到党内一部分人的抵抗,这也是忽视民主和“以党治国”的观念在作怪。最近虽有不少转变,但彻底纠正这种错误观念,还需要一个教育与斗争的过程。
    几年来,“以党治国”的思想曾经统治了某些区域,甚至有些区域的领导同志还长期存在着这种顽固的思想。它所造成的恶果也不小,主要表现为:
    If we say China is a semi-feudal country and a country that lacks democracy, it is reflected in our Party by the fact that, in general, Party members are not used to the practice of democracy and lack knowledge of and tempering in the struggle for democracy.
If we say that the Communist Parties in West European countries are tainted with some undesirable traditions of the social-democratic parties, the Chinese Communist Party is more or less tainted with the undesirable traditions of the Kuomintang. The concept of “ruling the country by the party”, held by some comrades, is a manifestation in our Party of an abominable tradition of the Kuomintang.
    When the Party proposed the three-thirds system, some Party members in the Shanxi-Hebei-Henan Area resisted, showing their neglect of democracy and the bad effect of the idea of “ruling the country by the Party”. Although there has been considerable change in this regard, education and struggle are still needed to discard this erroneous idea entirely.
    In the past few years the idea of “ruling the country by the party” has become prevalent in some areas, and some leading comrades have held to this mistaken idea for a long time, bringing about the following disastrous consequences:

以党治国 ruling the country by the party

恶劣传统 abominable tradition
恶果 disastrous consequences
