  League of Communists of Yugoslavia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
League of Communists of Yugoslavia (Savez komunista Jugoslavije), before 1952 the Communist Party of Yugoslavia (Komunistička partija Jugoslavije), was the major Communist party in Yugoslavia.
The Communists organized the largest resistance movement in Europe under the leadership of the Yugoslav National Liberation Army and was able to use guerrilla warfare with assistance from the British and Americans to establish liberated territories under its control.
The growing rift between the branches of the Communist Party and between the republics of Yugoslavia led to the effective dissolution of the Communist League of Yugoslavia at its 14th Congress held in January 1990 with rifts between Serbian and Slovenian Communists leading to the breakup of the party into different parties for each republic.

 Yugoslavia: A Country Study
Both the government and the ruling LCY became increasingly stratified between federal and regional organizations; by Tito's later years, the locus of political power was already diffused.
Also unique to Yugoslavia was the concept of statutory autonomy in nearly all governmental functions for each of the six republics in the federation.
The League of Communists of Yugoslavia (LCY--see Glossary) retained substantial control over the government's appointive and legislative functions, but innovations made party control of the country's diverse ethnic and economic groups problematic as early as the 1960s; the political management of economic reform, urgently needed by 1980, was complicated by the same factors.

 Informal Communist Discussion
Socialism is the period of transition between the overthrow of bourgeois rule and the development of a classless, communist society.
The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness.
Communist theory and practice will combine to deliver to millions of workers in the advanced industrialized countries the news that the fundamental solution to all the problems of the modern world--is the overthrow of the system of bourgeois rule--and its replacement with something that has never existed--workers' rule under modern conditions.

SPENCER: You said recently that in the former Yugoslavia there was a correlation between support for democracy and decentralization or separatism, while the opposing ideology of centralization was primarily a Communist one.
