In Memory of the Great Lenin, Down with Modern Revisionism!

by “Renmin Ribao” Commentator

Today, the Chinese people are celebrating the 97th anniversary of the birth of the great Lenin amid the resounding triumphant songs of the great proletarian cultural revolution.

Lenin was the great revolutionary teacher, after Marx and Engels;  of proletariat and the oppressed nations of the world.

Lenin founded the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, led by the Soviet people in winning the victory of the Great October Socialist Revolution and established the first socialist state in the world.

Reviewing the history of the development of Marxism, Lenin once wrote: Marxism “has had to fight for every step forward in the course of its life.” Lenin devoted his life to unflinching  and acute struggles against the various kinds of enemies of the proletariat. Through his unrelenting fight against revisionists and opportunists of all shades and hues, Lenin safeguarded Marxism and brought it forward to a new historical stage, the stage of Leninism.

Lenin defended and developed the Marxist theory of the dictatorship of the proletariat in his struggle against revisionism and opportunism. He pointed out: “A Marxist is solely someone who extends the recognition of the class struggle to the recognition of the dictatorship of the proletariat.” He also said, “The key question of every revolution is undoubtedly the question of state power. Which class holds power decides everything.” Therefore, before their seizure of power, the proletariat and other revolutionary people must stick to the principle of violent revolution, smash the old state apparatus and take power by the force of arms; and after taking power, they must safeguard and consolidate the dictatorship of the proletariat and carry the socialist revolution through to the end. The proletariat has nothing if it has no political power; it gains everything if it gains political power; and it loses it if it loses political power. This is a fundamental law of class struggle and an extremely important lesson for the international communist movement.

While celebrating the 97th anniversary of the birth of the great Lenin, we must not lose sight of the harsh fact that, in the Soviet Union, the native  land of Leninism has been usurped by the Khrushchov revisionist group and that the dictatorship of the proletariat there has been transformed into a dictatorship of the bourgeoisie.  Khrushchov and his successors Brezhnev, Kosygin and their  like have betrayed the great Lenin, betrayed Marxism-Leninism, betrayed the October revolution and betrayed the Soviet people and the people of the whole world. They are the biggest  group of renegades and scabs in history,

Revisionism is the avowed enemy of Marxism, but it always swears by the name of Marx. Lenin said: “It cannot be prohibited from doing this, just as a trading firm cannot be prohibited from  using any particular sign or advertisement.” This is the case with the Soviet revisionist leading clique today. This handful of dirty renegades have the cheek to call themselves “successors to the cause of Lenin” and try to bluff and deceive in the name of Leninism. They have lost all sense of shame!

The group of Soviet revisionists today are the very successors to those revisionists rebuked by Lenin. But their crimes are a thousand times more heinous than those of their predecessors.

These people have turned the C.P.S.U. founded by Lenin into “a party of the entire people,” that is, a new-type social-democratic party, a party of the bourgeoisie. Aren’t they the type of opportunists Lenin once reproved for “going the  length of betraying the Party”?

These people have flagrantly carried out the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie in the Soviet Union, restored capitalism in an all-round manner, buried the achievements of the October Revolution and caused  the socialist state founded by Lenin to change its colour. Aren’t they  the type of “agents of the  bourgeoisie” Lenin once condemned?

These people go down on their bended knees before imperialism, follow the line of capitulation and never hesitate to sell out the interests of the revolutionary people of the world in order to realize “U.S.-Soviet collaboration for world domination. Aren’t they the type of “flunkeys ‘serving’ imperialism” Lenin once rebuked?

These people peddle far and wide their fraud of “peaceful transition” to corrode the revolutionary will of the peoples and oppose the oppressed peoples who take to revolutionary violence in order to resist counter-revolutionary violence and seize power by the force of   arms. Aren’t they the type of “proselytes” Lenin once rebuked?

They have committed every crime in feigning support for but actually betraying the oppressed nations’ struggles for liberation. They are helping the imperialists to strangle the national-liberation movement everywhere and have gone to the length of serving as the No. 1 accomplice of U.S. imperialism in its aggression against the Vietnamese people. Aren’t they the type of “traitors and scoundrels” Lenin once denounced?

Marxism-Leninism teaches us that the emergence of revisionism is not accidental but has social roots. Revisionism will appear so long as imperialism exists and so long as the bourgeoisie exist.  Fifty years ago, Lenin said that in coming  decades “new Plekhanovs, new Scheidemanns, new sentimental conciliators like Kautsky will grow up from the depths of ‘united’ international social democracy.” What Lenin predicted has taken place. Naturally, this is nothing to be afraid of. That modern revisionism with the Soviet revisionist clique as its centre is for the time being rampaging around is merely a manifestation of the desperate struggle of imperialism in its dying stage.  It can never hold back the triumphant advance of Marxism-Leninism.

Our great leader Chairman Mao is the genuine successor to the cause of Lenin. Chairman Mao has inherited, defended and developed Marxism-Leninism with genius, creatively and in an all-round way, and has raised it to a completely new stage. Mao Tse-tung’s thought is Marxism-Leninism of the era in which imperialism is heading for total collapse and socialism is advancing to worldwide victory. The great proletarian cultural revolution personally launched and led by Chairman Mao has solved the problem of arousing millions upon millions of people to make extensive revolution under conditions of the dictatorship of the proletariat. It has solved the problem of seizing power from a handful  of   persons in authority taking the  capitalist road in organs of the dictatorship of the proletariat; and it has solved the problem of preventing capitalist restoration and ensuring that China will never change its colour. This is a significant development of Marxism-Leninism by Chairman Mao. It is as important and as great as Marx’s theory of scientific socialism and Lenin’s theory of the of the proletariat seizing power in one country. This unprecedented, great revolution has not only firmly consolidated the dictatorship of the proletariat in our country, but has ushered in  a new era  in the international communist movement and sounded the death knell of imperialism, reactionaries of all countries and modern revisionism.

Marxism-Leninism has always developed amid the curses and opposition of the enemy.  Just after Marxism was born, all the reactionary forces in Europe joined hands in a vain attempt to drive away the “phantom” that had appeared in Europe. When Leninism was born, the revisionists of the Second International and scabs and renegades of all shades and hues got together to oppose it. Leninism had not only been bitterly hated and cursed by the imperialists, reactionaries and international revisionists but has also been rabidly attacked by Trotsky, Bukharin and other bourgeois elements within the C.P.S.U. itself. At present, the imperialists and reactionaries of all countries, in league with the modern revisionists, are hysterically attacking the great thought of Mao Tse-tung. At the same time, a handful of the biggest Party persons in authority taking the capitalist road and revisionist in our country echoing the class enemies at home and abroad, have been unscrupulously opposing Mao Tse-tung’s thought. In doing so, the revisionists at home and abroad are opposing Marxism, opposing Leninism, opposing revolution. But whoever opposes Marxism-Leninism, Mao Tse-tung’s thought, no matter who he is and what disguise he may wear, will be knocking his head against a brick wall and will meet a shameful end. As the saying goes, “You will all perish, body and name, and yet the rivers will flow on for ever.” No force on earth can prevent Marxism-Leninism, Mao Tse-tung thought, from achieving worldwide victory!

“Where nature sentient, she too would pass from youth to age; but in man’s world seas change into youth to age; but in man’s world seas change into mulberry fields.” [Chairman Mao’s poem: The Capture of Nanking by the People’s Liberation Army] In the native land of Leninism political power has been temporarily usurped by the revisionist clique, but socialism will eventually triumph over revisionism and capitalism. This is an inevitable law of the development of history. The great Soviet people will definitely not put up for long with the rule of the traitorous Soviet revisionist clique. Leninism will certainly shine again in all its glory over the Soviet land! Long live Leninism! Down with modern revisionism! (”Renmin Ribao,” April 22)
