The first prerequisite for the capture of power is the acceptance of communist principles and aims by the majority of the working class. In its struggle for the proletarian dictatorship, the revolutionary proletariat, led by the Communist Parties, employs the methods of revolutionary mass action (demonstrations, shop council movements, strikes, general strikes, control of production, occupation of factories, armed revolt, etc.) and the institutions of bourgeois democracy (parliaments, etc.).
