Consult the Masses to Win Another Rich Harvest

    SPRING has come. The struggle for a rich harvest in this first year of the 70s has begun.
   Guided by the great leader Chairman Mao's great strategic principles "Heighten our vigilance, defend the motherland" and "Be prepared against war, be prepared against natural disasters, and do everything for the people," the agricultural front is seething with vitality. The struggle-criticism-transformation movement in the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution is advancing in depth and the socialist position in the rural areas has become still more consolidated. Holding aloft the great red banner of Mao Tsetung Thought, the poor and lower-middle peasants in their hundreds of millions are determined to "transform thousands of hills, improve millions of hectares of farmland and overthrow imperialism, revisionism and all reaction." From last Winter to this spring, they have completed water conservancy works for improving farmland on a large scale. Everywhere, preparations for spring farming have been started early and well. Reports from all over the country show that people are highly determined and fully confident in winning another rich harvest. The socialist countryside is thriving and the situation is very encouraging.
   During the current busy spring farming season, the poor and lower-middle peasants and other commune members, the cadres going down to do manual work, educated youth settling in the countryside as commune members, leading cadres at all levels and those working in the countryside, all these comrades should act on Chairman Mao's teachings "Going all out, aiming high and achieving greater, faster, better and more economical results in building socialism" and "Grasp the link of production in good time and strive for even greater achievements than those of last year."
   Agriculture is the foundation of the national economy. Grain and cotton are important strategic materials. Getting a good grip on spring farming and winning a rich harvest this year in grain, cotton and achieving good results in farm production as a whole is an important step in preparedness against war. By producing more grain and cotton and increasing the reserves of the state and the collective, we will be able to still better accelerate our socialist construction and more effectively to deal with any aggressive war launched by imperialism or social-imperialism and cope with any natural disaster. In this way China will always be invincible.
   The factor of man comes first. The hundreds of millions of poor and lower-middle peasants armed with Mao Tsetung Thought can overcome any difficulty and work wonders in the world. How did the Tachai Brigade bring about its changes? How did our country win rich harvests for many years running? All this has been achieved by acting in the revolutionary spirit of "self-reliance" and "hard struggle" as Chairman Mao teaches, and by consulting the masses and giving full play to their initiative. We will certainly conquer nature provided we combine revolutionary vigour with a scientific approach to work.
   During the current busy spring farming season, we must particularly raise our revolutionary vigilance and pay close attention to new trends of class struggle. We should continue to launch revolutionary mass criticism, criticize the counter-revolutionary revisionist line pushed by the renegade, hidden traitor and scab Liu Shao-chi and eliminate its pernicious influence. This will greatly propel current spring farming forward. In this struggle, the masses of the poor and lower-middle peasants will surely further increase their consciousness of class struggle and the struggle between the two lines, and show still greater revolutionary drive.
   Chairman Mao teaches us: "Political work is the life-blood of all economic work." The main leading cadres at all levels must give prominence to proletarian politics, go to the forefront of spring farming and actively take part in collective productive labour. They should serve the people whole-heartedly and never for a moment divorce ourselves from the masses as Chairman Mao has taught us, discuss all problems with the poor and lower-middle peasants and other commune members, sum up the experience in winning rich harvests and take practical measures to increase production. They should mobilize the masses to farm scientifically according to Chairman Mao's "Eight-Point Charter" for Agriculture. Industry must serve agriculture and all trades should be organized to give spring farming timely support. We should foresee any problem that may come up and take into account all kinds of difficulties and make preparations to cope with them. We will thus be better able to win a rich harvest.
