Constitution of the Unity Party

Unity

The far-left consists of numerous dispersed and varying ideologies – ranging from
Anarcho-Syndicalism to Marxist-Leninist-Maoism. Such ideologies each contain
their own individual goals and methods for attaining such goals. This is a weakness
of the far-left – while capitalists and fascists each have an abundance of common
ground, the far-left suffers from the issue of an inherent ideological division from
one another.
However, in spite of ideological differences, every far-left ideology shares two
things in common; the abolition of capitalism and the combat against fascism. As
such, in order for each of these ideologies to attain their goals, they must unify in
light of their common interests. The apparent differences in their ideologies are
instances that should only be considered when organizing methods of revolution as
well as organizing after such revolutions. In order to attain the required conditions
for revolution, far-leftists must work together in every way possible.

Pandect

Unity Party has multiple laws that are listed on the Discord server, some of which
exclusively apply to it. However, there are, of course, laws that apply to all sects of
Unity Party, and as such must universally be followed. They shall be detailed as
follows.

Constitution of the Unity Party

Firstly, under no circumstance is ‘hate speech’ tolerated. This is defined as speech
with the purpose of discriminating against or marginalizing certain groups. This
also includes known derogatory ‘slurs’ against such groups. Such speech is known
to be racist, sexist, ableist, homophobia, biphobic, transphobic, and xenophobic,
among many other forms of discrimination not specifically listed here. A list of
slurs that are banned can be found here. This also includes usage of humor that has
a known derogatory definition or connotation
Second, specific personal information about individuals, whether they be oneself
or otherwise, is not allowed to be said in a public forum.
Third, the rejection of intersectionality, or the idea that individuals may receive
discrimination due to multiple different sources, is not tolerated.
Fourth, sectarianism, or conflict among far-leftists regarding their ideologies, is
not tolerated.
Fifth, while Unity Party is for all far-leftists, “National Bolsheviks” and followers
of equivalent ideologies are viewed in the same light as fascists, and as such are
not allowed to participate within the Party.
These laws, as is everything else in this document, are not infallible, and as such,
more laws may be added or removed as per specific conditions (see section
‘Constitutional Revision’).

Structure

Principles

Unity Party is founded on several core principles. These core principles are
shared amongst all of us, and guide us in our decisions regarding the Party. They
are:

1. Unification of far-leftists under common ideals, such as those to be listed
below.
2. The abolishment of capitalism and opposition of fascism and the far-right.
3. Transparency and democracy amongst our Central Committee.
4. The liberation of disabled individuals, racial/ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+
individuals, and women, as well as the working class.
5. The coordination amongst ourselves and with other leftist organizations.

Constitution of the Unity Party

Membership

Unity Party, in order to allow it to fulfill its purposes, requires the cooperation of
Full Members who abide by the group’s Principles. Such Full Members obtain the
right to participate in elections (see section ‘Elections’), act in the Working Groups
(see section ‘Working Groups’), to run for various positions, and to have access to
a secretive, secure chatroom to discuss party operations.
Currently, the main operations of Unity Party are on the Discord chat client. Due
to this, the current conditions for becoming a Full Member are subject to change,
provided Unity Party’s central area of organization changes.
To become a Full Member, an individual first must have been an Associate
Member for at least two weeks. The process to become an Associate Member is as
follows. First, an individual joins the public ‘Unity Party’ Discord server and
displays activity, as well as genuine leftist interest/knowledge. Following these
requirements, the Central Committee then will, of course, notice this individual,
and hold a vote on whether to interview them to become an Associate Member.
Provided the interview passes such an interview, they are to be added to the ‘Unity
Party Full Members’ chat, designated to be kept secretive for Associate and Full
Members to communicate with one another.
After being an Associate Member for two weeks, the Associate Members are to
undergo an interview for becoming a Full Member and, provided they pass with
approval from the Central Committee, are granted Full Membership.

Constitutional Revision

This Constitution, as stated earlier within it, is not intended to be unmalleable,
and as such is susceptible to revision.
In order for the Unity Party Constitution to be revised, it must be at a specific
time and date. Indeed, the opportunity to change it will be biannually, during
which period various elections for Unity Party will occur (see section ‘Elections.’)
Following the filling of specific positions, there will be a meeting with all Central
Committee and Full Members. In such a meeting, both the Central Committee and
Full Members may propose ratifications to the Constitution, and, if such a
ratification passes, then it will, of course, result in a change to the Constitution.

Elections

As stated in the prior section, Unity Party is to have biannual elections. The first
of such elections took place on June 01 – 04, 2017, and as such, will occur again
on December 01 – 04, 2017. The specific subjects that will be occurring during
these elections will be shown as follows.
