The Christian Communist Party (Hulstrian:Christlishe Kommuniestech Partei, Gao-Showa:Kirisotuka Kyo Sonto) known as the CCP (and sometimes the CKP) is a political party in Gishoto. The party is strongly religious and holds the belief that true christian belief demands a collective economy in which all believers are equal.
The movement remained dormant until gaining new followers in the apartheid era and was refounded in January 2281 with the goal of overthrowing the Kaiser of what had become Greater Hulstria and recreating Gishoto as a Christian Socialist Republic. The Party briefly claimed a majority in the Diet and was able to form a government but lacked the neccesary seats to make any major long lasting changes. Efforts by the establishment to remove the parties support and attack it's inner structure quickly took effect and within a few years the party was forced to close and it's leaders imprisoned or exiled.
In early 2479 Ayumi Meyer, a descendant of Haruhi Meyer nee Suzumiya, refounded the party with a perhaps more legitimate claim on continuity from the original CCP than the apartheid era party. The party made an early impact in a snap election, becoming the 2nd largest party in the Imperial Diet and with Meyer coming third in the race for the position of Lord Protector. With the CCP at the forefront the Monarchy was rapidly dismantled and a new Republic, largely rooted in Lutheran Christianity, created. Ayumi has gone on to be elected Archon on 3 occasions.
All private property should be removed and granted to the people in the form of the state. All industry shall be run by the workers. The economy should be geared to sustaining and spreading the true revolution of Christian Communism.
Christian Communist revolutions should be supported and encouraged. Revolutions by Marxists should only be supported if the concesion of free religion is gained (a strong military should help gain leverage for Gishoto in such situations). Once a socialist revolution is secured the state should support Christian Communists.
The CCP is a federalist party, believing that power should be devolved away from the central government as much as possible to avoid the rise of a new bureaucratic class which takes control of the state away from God and his people.
The ideas of separate states based on ideas of race are constructs of the aristocracy. The idea of a Hulstrian race was developed by the ruling class of that region to control all citizens of their creed and likewise for the Gao-Showa. The CCP disavows such views. All citizens are Christians first and foremost and secondarily Gishotons, nothing else!
