This organisation is the party of the proletariat. The Party possesses all the necessary qualifications for this purpose because, in the first place, it is the common meeting ground of the best elements in the class that have direct connections with the non-Party organisations of the proletariat and very frequently lead them; because, secondly? the Party, as the meeting ground of the best members of the working class, is the best school for training leaders of the working class, capable of directing every form of organisation of their class; because, thirdly, the Party, as the best school for training leaders of the working class, is, by reason of its experience and authority, the only organisation capable of centralising the leadership of the struggle of the proletariat and in this way of transforming each and every non-Party organisation of the working class into an auxiliary body, a transmission belt linking it with the class. The Party is the highest form of class organisation of the proletariat. This does not mean, of course, that non-Party organisations like trade unions, co-operative societies, etc., must be formally subordinated to Party leadership.
