Against a One Party Communist System

A Tract Book Essay

One of the hallmarks of a Communist system is that there is only

one political party. I would like to argue that, metaphysically, it not only

unwise, but in the long run, impossible to have a one party system.

I have argued previously that the Level 2, level of consciousness or

reality, is a Daoist level. The Dao means, in essence that there are two

apposite principles which have been brought into a relational harmony. The

classical example is Ying and Yang, but other Daoist formulations are: hot

and cold, fast and slow, male and female, intuitive and analytic, red and

blue colors, conservative and liberal, up and down, etc.

In applying the Dao reality principle to politics, it is apparent that

there can never be one monistic, unitary, political system. Even in the

monarchial model, there was the Dao of King and Queen. In the medieval

period in Europe there was the Dao of monarchy and church. So, my

argument is that a one party system is contrary to natural law. Perhaps the

most basic political Daoist principle is the Dao of the ingroup and outgroup.

Even where there is a one party Communist politburo, there are still

minority factions, that is the outgroup, on the politburo. I argue for a

Constitutional Democracy with the Rule of Law where there are two or three

major political parties. This works with either a Dualistic Harmonious Dao,

or a Trinitarian Harmonious Tao. Monism leads to disunity not unity.
