From The Organization of a Struggle Committee in a Housing Complex:

“The political identity of the proletariat, constituted through the relation of leadership, is defined according to a dialectic of unity and struggle between three terms: the working class itself, the broad masses and the bourgeois class state. The working class becomes a class in the political sense, the proletariat, as it unites itself and the whole people in the class struggle against the bourgeois state. The proletariat, in Lenin’s words, “represents the working class, not in its relation to a given group of employers alone, but in its relation to all classes of modern society and to the state as an organized political force.”

Only once we master the dialectic between unity and struggle that gives the relation of leadership its political content can we properly pose the question of the Party, so that the worker and popular masses can take it up as a conscious and practical task.”
