The great power of Revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation
    
     Everywhere in China, in factories, rural people's communes, P.L.A. units, schools and government offices, and even among fishermen at sea and entire families in their homes, the mass movement to criticize and repudiate the bourgeoisie and all other exploiting classes is developing in depth and scope. This "people's war" which uses Mao Tse-tung's thought as the weapon began on an extensive scale 14 months ago. It has already demonstrated its great power. It is of the utmost importance in destroying the bourgeois headquarters headed by China's Khrushchov and its social foundations for the restoration of capitalism in China, and in consolidating the proletarian dictatorship, promoting the cultural revolution and transforming the people's outlook. The revolutionary masses call this campaign a ''great strategic plan" of our great leader Chairman Mao in leading the people to oppose revisionism and prevent a capitalist restoration. We reprint below an article written by the "Chinghai Ribao" (Chinghai Daily) correspondent on the achievements of the revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation campaign in the Sining area of Chinghai Province, northwest China.
     In publishing this article on June 24, "Renmin Ribao" ran an accompanying short commentary which pointed out that "the brilliant achievements of revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation in the Sining area show the great importance of vigorously continuing this campaign." The commentary called on the flatten to "use the revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation campaign guided by the invincible thought of Mao Tse-tung . . . to develop the excellent situation and usher in greater and all-round victory in the great proletarian cultural revolution."
     In August 1967, the proletarian revolutionaries in Chinghai seized power from a handful of capitalist roaders who had usurped important Party and government positions in the province. The provincial revolutionary committee was founded — the new organ of power set up on the principle of the "three-in-one" combination, comprising representatives of the revolutionary masses, revolutionary leading cadres and the P.L.A. Following Chairman Mao's teaching "never forget class struggle," this new-born provisional organ of power made the unfolding of sustained and deep-going revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation one of its basic tasks in grasping class struggle. Just as the "Chinghai Ribao," the organ of the provincial revolutionary committee, pointed out in an editorial on June 23, the campaign is, "under conditions of the proletarian dictatorship, a sharp weapon of the proletariat for completely defeating the bourgeoisie and all other exploiting classes, a strategic measure to ensure that our Party and country never change their political colour." — Ed.


UNPARALLELED in history, the great proletarian cultural revolution is a most profound revolutionary mass movement of the greatest magnitude. Under the command of Mao Tse-tung's thought, hundreds of millions of revolutionary people are undertaking a campaign which, with unprecedented depth and scope, exposes and repudiates the handful of capitalist roaders in the Party, renegades, enemy agents and all other counter-revolutionaries, and clears out the sludge and filth of feudalism, capitalism and revisionism.
     Our great leader Chairman Mao has pointed out: "All decadent ideology and other incongruous parts of the superstructure are crumbling as the days go by."This is precisely the situation in Sining.

Cultural Revolution Developing in Depth and Scope

     Chairman Mao initiated and leads the great proletarian cultural revolution, the first in history. He has set forth the whole theory, line, principles and policies for continuing to make revolution under the proletarian dictatorship, incisively revealed the law of class struggle in socialist society, and developed Marxism-Leninism to a higher level in theory and practice on the cardinal question of class struggle and the dictatorship of the proletariat.
     The proletarian revolutionaries in Sining have closely followed Chairman Mao's great strategic plan. They have exposed and repudiated China's Khrushchov and the rest of the handful of top capitalist roaders in the Party and their agents for their criminal opposition to the Party, socialism and Mao Tse-tung's thought, and for pushing forward a counter-revolutionary revisionist line.
     Through this exposure and repudiation, the proletarian revolutionaries have come to understand deeply the necessity of firmly grasping the struggle between the two classes, the two roads and the two lines in order to consolidate the proletarian dictatorship. Therefore, they are defending Chairman Mao's proletarian revolutionary line even more consciously and with ever greater determination.
     Revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation has helped open the eyes of people who had been hoodwinked by the capitalist roaders. They have gradually come to 6ee that the aim of the bourgeois reactionary line is to restore capitalism and plunge the working people into suffering again. And they, too, have begun to take an active part in attacking the class enemy.
     The revolutionary ranks are expanding rapidly and the handful of capitalist roaders in the Party are being overwhelmed in the vast ocean of the revolutionary mass movement.
     Through revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation, the revolutionary people know belter how to distinguish fragrant flowers from poisonous weeds and how to fight the class enemy.
     Recently, in co-ordination with rectification of Party organizations and taking stock of the class ranks, the revolutionary people of Sining have concentrated the fire of their criticism and repudiation on the revisionist lines on Party building and on the cadre question. They have brought to light a host of facts showing how the capitalist roaders drew together traitors, deserters and other bad elements to form self-seeking cliques.
     The handful of renegades, enemy agents and other counter-revolutionaries — survivals of the Kuomintang reactionaries — who hid in Party and government organizations and industrial enterprises under the wing of the capitalist roaders, have been ferreted out and their sinister features revealed. This is a vivid proof that the bourgeoisie's representatives who wormed their way into the Party are actually agents of the Kuomintang reactionaries in the Communist Party, that our struggle with them is in essence a continuation of the prolonged struggle between the Communist Party and the Kuomintang reactionaries, and that the struggle between the bourgeoisie which attempts to stage a comeback and the proletariat which opposes its come-back is a protracted, acute and complicated one.
     This exposure of the class enemies one after another has effectively shattered the social foundations which China's Khrushchov relied upon in his attempt to restore capitalism in China.

Widespread Dissemination of Mao Tse-tung's Thought

     Revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation means the use of Mao Tse-tung's thought to criticize and repudiate the ideas of the bourgeoisie and all other exploiting classes. The revolutionaries of Sining have found that Mao Tse-tung's thought is the sharpest weapon against feudalism, capitalism and revisionism. They say that Mao Tse-tung's thought is the telescope and microscope with which to discover all monsters and demons. Only Mao Tse-tung's thought can prevent the restoration of capitalism and guarantee that our Party and our country never change their political colour.
     The masses of workers, poor and lower-middle peasants, armymen, young Red Guard fighters and government cadres throughout Sining study Chairman Mao's works every day. Their creative study and application of Mao Tse-tung's thought has brought about profound changes in their outlook.
     They say the fact that China's Khrushchov had been able to enforce his counter-revolutionary revisionist line in some places was primarily because some people had the bourgeois concept of self-interest. This concept was the root of revisionism and revisionism was its fruit. Only when it is completely overthrown, can the proletarian concept of devotion to the public interest gain complete ascendancy, and can the domination in the political and economic fields by the prolelariat be consolidated.
     Workshops, farms, classrooms and peasant homes have all become battlefields for fighting self and repudiating revisionism. The reactionary bourgeois world outlook typified by China's Khrushchov is under fierce attack. More and more people are striving to emulate the heroes commended by Chairman Mao in the "three constantly read articles" — Chang Szu-teh, Norman Bethune and the Foolish Old Man who removed the mountains — and to follow the example of Comrade Men Ho, who is praised as a good cadre boundlessly loyal to Chairman Mao's revolutionary line.

Flourishing Situation in Sining

     The success of revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation in Sining has further borne out our great leader Chairman Mao's thesis: "There is no construction without destruction. Destruction means criticism and repudiation; it means revolution. It involves reasoning things out, which is construction. Put destruction first, and in the process you have construction."
     Holding high the banner of revolutionary criticism according to Mao Tse-tung's thought, proletarian revolutionaries and revolutionary people on every front have launched fierce attacks on the counter-revolutionary revisionist line in industry, agriculture, political science and law, art and literature, education, scientific research and other spheres of work.
     By repudiating the bourgeois idea of "putting work-points in command." the revolutionary peasants have given prominence to proletarian politics. By denouncing the revisionist line of "relying on experts," the revolutionary workers have displayed great revolutionary spirit, broken down bourgeois conventions and introduced many innovations to increase efficiency and save manpower.
     Revolutionary students and teachers have cast aside the erroneous practice of ''putting intellectual training first" and "putting marks in command" and have determinedly taken the road of "education serving proletarian politics and education being combined with productive labour."
     Revolutionary literary and art workers have repudiated such revisionist theories as a "literature and art for the whole people"' and adhered to the principle of literature and art serving the workers, peasants and soldiers, serving socialism and helping to consolidate the dictatorship of the proletariat.
     Revolutionary cadres have concentrated their fire on the old bureaucratic style of work. They are putting into effect Chairman Mao's teaching that the revolutionary committee should "follow the policy of better troops and simpler administration1 and organize a revolutionized leading group which links itself with the masses."
     In short, all parts of the superstructure which are incompatible with the socialist economic base are crumbling. New ideas, culture, customs and habits conforming to the socialist economic base are taking shape.
     Revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation has promoted the revolutionary great alliance and the revolutionary "three-in-one" leadership. At the same time, it has given industry and agriculture a powerful impetus. A vigorous atmosphere prevails in both the urban and rural districts of the Sining area.
     The campaign is continuing. It is cleansing the old world with the force of a big thunderstorm. The masses of revolutionary people have pledged to carry on the campaign to the end.
