Militantsocialistiska Arbetarepartiet (English: Militant Socialist Workers Party, also called Arbetarepartiet MSAP) was a Swedish left-wing party. It was one of the biggest parties in Sweden before it was couped by members of (liberal) parties. In September 2009 the party was regained by its members and a process of renewal was initiated. On the 20th of September that year, MSAP turned into Folket, and later reverted back into MSAP again. MSAP advocates economic democracy, i.e. worker control of the means of production, and wants to improve the conditions of the workers as opposed to improving the conditions of the minority of company owners.

In April 2015, the party changed its name to "Antiplatoniterna MSAP". Their main agenda has then focused on opposition to Plato and eRepublik Labs. In order to reduce the makers' revenue from the game, they want to stop all wars, as well as raising the taxes and minimum wage to the maximum[1].

MSAP Manifesto

Main article: Folket/Manifesto

MSAP used the same manifesto as Folket.

MSAP Mission

MSAP is a revolutionary workers' socialist party that is opposed to all forms of oppression. Our objective is a total transformation of the existing society, to abolish capitalism and in its place create a worker controlled and democratic socialist society. We stand for equal rights for all, and fight against any discrimination based on sex, culture, sexual orientation, religion, party adherence or nationality. The by-laws of the party can be found here.

The State

The party wants to promote the welfare of the workers rather than that of the company owners and to strengthen the economy of the country. In order to accomplish this, the party wants to introduce new ownership models where no one can profit from the work of others. Workers and consumers will be able to choose from a variety of privately, stately, and workers' owned companies. State-controlled companies will be created and parts of the Swedish economy regulated according to the needs of the workers, instead of like today according to the wants of a few profiteers. Workers' self-management will also be conducted in workers' owned companies whose funding will be supported and subsidized by the workers-state.

The New Economy model as proposed by MSAP.

Socialism

Our alternative to capitalism is socialism, a more just, free and rational system. Socialism is a system where the means of production are collectively and democratically owned and controlled and administered by the democratically controlled workers state. Thus democracy is extended to the economic sphere that earlier had been under the dictatorship of capital. This means that the state will be able to plan the production. The well-being of the people will be put above profit. Production will be rationalized.

Wealth

Ten people cooperating together will achieve more than ten people competing against each other. The destructive competition of today will be abolished. The wealth produced in Sweden will be justly distributed among the population by the new ownership models. The state will distribute resources and fill up deficits with surpluses to cover the needs of the population. Under socialism, reforms will be carried out to increase the participation of the working masses in the political process.

Internationalism

MSAP is an internationalist party that wants to secure world-peace and solidarity, by calling to arms should the need arise. We do not tolerate the oppression of our brothers or sisters anywhere. This means that we see our struggle in Sweden as a part of a grater, global socialist struggle. We work for the creation of a socialist international where socialist parties can meet, discuss and coordinate the socialist struggle.

Anti-Imperialism

We are also an anti-imperialist party. This means that we oppose colonialism and imperialist wars of conquest, which we see have their origin in the capitalist mode of production. We defend the right of all peoples to their own nations, and the right of all nations to self-determination.

Defence Issues

Main article: Workers' Militia

We also stand for the maintenance of world peace. At the same time, we see that Sweden by necessity has to defend itself and secure its survival and influence and that this objective sometimes can lead to necessary conquests of regions and countries. The principle of self-determination for all nations does not mean that the borders of a country have to follow the borders of that country in the real world.

Policies in a Free Market Society

Today Sweden is far from being a socialist country. While MSAP is a revolutionary party, this does not mean that we want to overthrow the democratically elected government by force. As long as Sweden is a democratic country, where the take-over of the state apparatus by the proletariat is possible to carry out by legal means, MSAP will work within the framework of democracy.

Reforms

Under capitalism, MSAP will put forward reformist demands to increase the standard of living of the majority of the people, to fight imperialism and to extend democracy. These demands can, for example, be higher wages, improved working conditions, the right to unemployment benefits, and that Sweden actively defends small countries against imperialist wars of aggression.

Transitional Demands

It is also important that we put forward so-called transitional demands, that is, demands which are impossible to fulfil within capitalism, and that thus increase the class consciousness of the working masses and the insight that another, socialist society is necessary. These demands can, for example, be full employment, and a stabilisation of the economy. In the struggle for the fulfilment of these demands, it is important that we cooperate with the mass organisations of the working class, of which the trade union is the most important. Under capitalism, MSAP can participate in government coalitions and cooperate with non-socialist parties. This should, however, be done with great care, and an evaluation of advantages and disadvantages should take place.

We should know that although our participation in governments can strengthen the cause of socialism and increase the power and standard of living of the working class, class cooperation can often lead to the long-term loss of working-class support, and the degeneration of the party into a reformist and opportunist one.

History

The Right-Wing Coups

In April the party was briefly couped by Neppons. He remained a few weeks before he stepped down. In July the party was couped yet again. This time by Bertil Gurkvatten and his henchmen after Mombassa resigned his party president seat. He renamed the party to "Jedi Party", and then later to "The Great Cornholio", and finally to "To Be Decided". He managed to win the party elections of July by a margin of 2 votes by inviting other antisocialists to join and vote. During his time the entire party account of Icon-gold.gif 180 GOLD was spent on pointless Jedi-advertisements.

In August the coupers launched another candidate Simcon who managed to win despite an electoral tie. On the election day members of FBS and FRONT left their parties in order to vote in the MSAP-elections. Five minutes thereafter they went back to their old parties. The voting presence sky-rocketed to a record high of 92.86% (but could've very well gone above 100% due to the beforementioned tactics)[2]. On August 24, The Herminator Institute is founded by Dirty Harry and Rhood. The purpose of the institute was to gather all socialists regardless of party membership and formulate a new political e-ideology derived from socialism.

Folket and Turkish coup

Main article: Folket

On September 16, Per-Fredrik is elected party president and the party is restored, however, 3 days later it was transformed into Folket. It was known as Folket until January 2010, when the party is taken over by Turkish citizens and was eventually restored in February 2010.
