Hello, I am the found of the NICP (Northern Irish Communist Party). I created it because there is no Communist Party in Northern Ireland. I started writing a Manifesto (or a political book) but I'm not sure if I should publish when I'm done because I'm only 17, I think I may not be mature enough to understand everything about the left-wing. I am passionate about my views on communism!

Here is the website, http://nicp.moonfruit.co.uk/ (I will be buying a domain soon.)

Should I continue to write and go forth with my views?

If you want to read what I've written so far, inbox me!

Thanks!

Are these not something of a contradiction? How can you be passionate about something you don't understand?

I think you should get involved with the Communist Party of Ireland if anything. We need fewer, not more, communist parties. The far left is already fragmented into a vast number of tiny little parties who seem to hate each other as much as they hate the bourgeoise parties. Also, no-one is going to take a party founded by a 17 year-old seriously. The only other members will be you and other teenagers and it won't be able to achieve anything in the workers' movement in that condition. Better to cut your teeth in an established party where more experienced comrades can educate you.

I would join the Irish Communist Party but you see, I live in Northern Ireland. There's a difference that maybe you don't understand.
They're two different countries and I wouldn't be able to attend anything.

But there are organisations active in both the Republic and in the North, such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workers%27 ... arty_today, and other Trotskyist ones for sure.

EDIT: Found them

You'll find that all far left groups in Ireland are All-Ireland parties.

I disagree that no one will take his party seriously, just as long he builds links amongst other teenagers at his school or town.

I am several years older then you, and being an American, am going to form a leftist-inspired club at my school.

It is important to remember that you are only one person right now trying to manage a big project, but I admire your keen interest in politics.

Try to enlarge your party. At your school you could host a meeting to introduce teenagers interested in socialism to your new party. Explain to them what communism really means, and how you plan to fight for socialism at a school-wide level.

Try to create realistic goals for fellow students to achieve.

Make sure to read Marx and especially Lenin(after all, what you are managing is a communist party).

I hope this serves as a great way to get your feet wet in future politics. I wish you luck.
