—In Commemoration of the Second Anniversary of Chairman Mao's First Review of Red Guards

    IN August 18, 1966, our great supreme commander Chairman Mao reviewed the mighty ranks of the Red Guards for the first time. Since then, the Red Guard movement has advanced vigorously wave upon wave over all China and has shaken the entire world.
   The great proletarian cultural revolution is a great revolution in which the revolutionary masses, in their hundreds of millions, are fully mobilized under the leadership of the proletarian headquarters headed by Chairman Mao and with Vice-Chairman Lin Piao as its deputy leader. The Red Guard movement which spread like a tempest in the early stage of the great proletarian cultural revolution is a revolutionary youth movement which emerged in response to the need for continuing to make revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat
   Our great leader Chairman Mao warmly supported the Red Guard movement, a new revolutionary phenomenon, and smashed the plot of China's Khrushchev and the rest of the handful of capitalist roaders in the Party at that time to instigate the masses to fight among themselves. The revolutionary actions of the Red Guards, Chairman Mao said, "express your wrath against and your denunciation of the landlord class, the bourgeoisie, the imperialists, the revisionists and their running dogs, all of whom exploit and oppress the workers, peasants, revolutionary intellectuals and revolutionary parties and groups. They show that it is right to rebel against reactionaries. I warmly support you."
   In the great struggle to expose the handful of renegades, enemy agents and capitalist roaders, all of whom were headed by China's Khrushchov, in the struggle to criticize and repudiate the counter-revolutionary revisionist line represented by him, and in the struggle to thoroughly destroy the old ideas, culture, customs and habits of the bourgeoisie and of all other exploiting classes, the masses of revolutionary young Red Guard fighters have held aloft Chairman Mao's great banner — "it is right to rebel against reactionaries," fought heroically, helped spread the flames of the great proletarian cultural revolution throughout the country and struck terror in the hearts of the imperialists, modern revisionists and all exploiting classes. In the progress of the great proletarian cultural revolution movement, the Red Guard movement has, in a way, played a pioneer role, and it has made tremendous contributions.
   Chairman Mao long ago drew a scientific Marxist-Leninist conclusion on the historical position and role of the revolutionary youth movement. In 1939, he pointed out: "What role have China's young people played since the May 4th Movement? In a way they have played a vanguard role — a fact recognized by everybody except the die-hards."
   Chairman Mao laid stress on "the workers and peasants as the basic revolutionary forces and the workers as the class which leads the revolution." He said: "How should we judge whether a youth is a revolutionary? How can we tell? There can only be one criterion, namely, whether or not he is willing to integrate himself with the broad masses of workers and peasants and does so in practice." Chairman Mao in this statement pointed out the only correct orientation for the youth movement.
   The working class and the labouring masses, the workers and peasants, have the greatest hatred for the exploiting classes, are the most ready to accept Marxism-Leninism, Mao Tse-tung's thought, stand firmest against capitalist restoration, have the best understanding of the great significance of consolidating the dictatorship of the proletariat, and possess the thoroughness and steadfastness to continue to make revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat Nurtured on Mao Tse-tung's thought and led by the proletarian headquarters headed by Chairman Mao and with Vice-Chairman Lin Piao as its deputy leader, they arc able to wage the most resolute struggle against the handful of capitalist roaders within the Party, make the most powerful criticism of the counter-revolutionary revisionist Line, and undertake the most thoroughgoing transformation of those parts of the superstructure which reflect the interests of the exploiting classes and arc not in accord with the socialist economic base. The progress of the great proletarian cultural revolution over the past two years and more has fully shown that the masses of the Red Guards can have a sound future and carry the current great proletarian cultural revolution through to the end only by integrating themselves with the main force, the workers, peasants and soldiers, armed with Mao Tse-tung's thought.
   Chairman Mao recently pointed out again: "Our country has 700 million people and the working class is the leading class. Its leading role in the great cultural revolution and in all fields of work should be brought into full play." Therefore, the Red Guards and all educated youth should make the workers their teachers, steadily remould themselves in the course of protracted class struggle, earnestly accept the leadership of the working class, and conscientiously study Mao Tse-tung's thought — the world outlook of the working class. At present, the students should heartily welcome the worker-peasant-soldier Mao Tse-tung's thought propaganda teams and strive to integrate themselves with the workers, peasants and soldiers.
   Our editor's note of July 22 said: "We would like to advise those college students who look down upon the workers and peasants and think themselves great to throw off their affected airs." Is this an incorrect statement? Absolutely not. We are referring only to the small number of college students "who look down upon the workers and peasants" and put on airs, and not to the great majority of college students who respect the workers and peasants and are willing to learn from them. Is it not necessary to thoroughly correct the utterly wrong attitude of looking down upon the workers and peasants and thinking themselves great? Our country is a state of the dictatorship of the proletariat and it does not need intellectuals who look down upon the workers and peasants. All ideas opposing the proletariat should be subjected to criticism in the great proletarian cultural revolution.
   The great proletarian cultural revolution has opened up an unprecedentedly broad road for young intellectuals to integrate themselves with the workers, peasants and soldiers. The masses of revolutionary young Red Guard fighters should resolutely respond to Chairman Mao's great call and firmly take the road of integrating themselves with the workers, peasants and soldiers; they should make up their minds to become proletarian revolutionaries who are determined to carry the great proletarian cultural revolution through to the end, and, along with the workers, peasants and soldiers, seize all-round victory in the great proletarian cultural revolution. We earnestly hope that the masses of young Red Guard fighters and revolutionary young intellectuals will continue to make progress and learn modestly from the workers and peasants and from the Liberation Army. They should repudiate the counterrevolutionary revisionist educational line of China's Khrushchov and the different bourgeois reactionary fallacies of looking down upon the workers, peasants and soldiers. Like the workers, peasants and soldiers, they should always be loyal to Chairman Mao, Mao Tse-tung's thought and Chairman Mao's proletarian revolutionary line, be good sons and daughters of the working people and make new contributions in the great proletarian cultural revolution.
   Chairman Mao has boundless hope in our revolutionary young people. We are convinced that, under the leadership of the working class, the revolutionary Red Guards and the revolutionary young people will integrate themselves with the masses of workers, peasants and soldiers, gradually mature through the tests of protracted class struggle, vanquish the bourgeoisie and all other exploiting classes, overthrow imperialism, modern revisionism and all reaction, and carry through to the end the great cause of communism to bury the old world and create a new world!

(August 18)
