Continue to Do a Good Job in Criticizing Lin Piao and Confucius

     THE whole Party, the whole army and the people of the whole country are now conscientiously carrying out the instructions of Chairman Mao and the Party Central Committee, and the situation in revolution and production on all fronts is getting better and better.
  In such an excellent situation, is it still necessary to consider the movement to criticize Lin Piao and Confucius a matter of paramount importance and keep a firm grasp on it? It is. To continue to do a good job in criticizing Lin Piao and Confucius is precisely an important component part of the successive directives from Chairman Mao and the Party Central Committee. Only by broadening and deepening the movement to criticize Lin Piao and Confucius over a long period of time can we : consolidate and develop the excellent situation and win new victories.
  This excellent situation has been brought about in the course of struggle and is an outcome of the criticism of Lin Piao and Confucius. In this great political and ideological struggle, we have criticized the revisionist line pushed by Lin Piao and the doctrines of Confucius and Mencius; this has helped the masses in their hundreds of millions raise their consciousness of class struggle and the struggle between the two lines, expanded the positions of Marxism in the various spheres of the superstructure and given a powerful impetus to the deepening of the socialist revolution and the development of socialist construction. The movement to criticize Lin Piao and Confucius has consolidated and developed the gains of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, and its far-reaching influence on China's socialist cause has manifested and will, continue to manifest itself more and more fully. The present excellent situation would have been out of the question without the victory of Marxism in Us struggle against revisionism and the victory of the proletariat in its struggle against the bourgeoisie. Any tendency towards complacency, and slackness does not benefit carrying forward the movement to criticize Lin Piao and Confucius, nor does it benefit the development of the excellent situation.- '
  "One of our current important tasks on the ideological front is to unfold criticism of revisionism." Lin Piao's revisionist line and Ids fallacies, which were directed at splitting the Party, splitting the revolutionary ranks, opposing the dictatorship of the proletariat and opposing the socialist new things, must be criticized more penetratingly. This is of tremendous importance to strengthening unity. Criticism of Confucius is more difficult than criticism of Lin Piao. The doctrines of Confucius and Mencius have been subjected to extensive criticism, but it will take a prolonged struggle to thoroughly eliminate all their influence. We must persevere in using the Marxist stand, viewpoint and method to study the struggle between the Confucian and the Legalist schools and the history of class struggle as a whole. A still greater amount of work has to be done in closely linking the criticism of Lin Piao and Confucius with the struggle-criticism-transformation on all fronts, using Marxism to occupy the entire realm of the superstructure, including philosophy, history, education, literature, art and law, fostering and developing the socialist new things, adhering to the socialist road and criticizing tendencies towards capitalism. Thus, far from almost complete, the criticism of Lin Piao's counterrevolutionary revisionist line and the doctrines of Confucius and Mencius demands that we continue to make painstaking efforts, carry the criticism forward and grasp it firmly and effectively in a practical way. We must continue to advance in the midst of victories, carry the socialist revolution in the superstructure through to the end and never give up the weapon of criticism.
  To continue making the criticism of Lin Piao and Confucius a matter of paramount importance plays a big part in developing the excellent situation. With the deepening of the movement to criticize Lin Piao and Confucius, a new situation of vigorous development in China's national economy is emerging. We should grasp this favourable opportunity and redouble our efforts to expedite socialist construction. And, in doing so, we must bear firmly in mind Chairman Mao's teaching that "the line is the key link; once it is grasped, everything falls into place," and we must always keep a firm grip on big issues and on the line. Doing a good job in revolution and following a correct line — that is of basic importance in ensuring good production. This is borne out in practice. When we have done a good job in revolution and. when we have a correct line and unity among the masses, production will go up; otherwise, it will fall behind. We must at all times persist in, grasping revolution and promoting production and putting proletarian politics in command of the economy and professional work. However big the task and however busy the work, we must see to it that we do a good job in criticizing Lin Piao and Confucius and in improving our political and ideological work. This holds good in production and also in all other work.
  At present, we must direct our main attention to study and criticism. We must further raise our consciousness off the necessity; to read and study conscientiously, and organize the cadres and masses to painstakingly study works by Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin and by Chairman Mao. Only by grasping the sharp ideological weapon of Marxism can we make deep-going, analytical and convincing criticisms of revisionism and the doctrines of Confucius and Mencius, and scientifically sum up the historical experience of the struggle between the Confucian and the Legalist school and Class struggle as a whole, find out what the laws governing these struggles are and truly make the past serve the present. We must follow Chairman Mao's teachings and closely link the study of theory, history and the present situation. In this respect, the study and good grasp of Marxist theory is of key importance. Only when we study well can we do better in combining theory with practice and in combining history with present reality, raise criticism to a higher level and push the movement forward.
"The masses are the real heroes." The broad masses have created many new things in the movement to criticize Lin Piao and Confucius, thus opening up fresh avenues for developing the movement in depth. We must go deep among the masses and, together with them, study and carry out criticism and grasp typical examples. We must be good at discovering and summing up the new experience and new things created by the masses, and at popularizing them in good time to guide the work in a whole area. We must bring into play the militant role of the contingents of worker-peasant-soldier activists in theoretical study in the movement to criticize Lin Piao and Confucius, so as to consolidate them and raise their level in the struggle; at the same time, various ways should be adopted to enable the professional theoretical workers to integrate better with them. The movement is advancing and new situations and new things are constantly emerging. So long as we firmly carry out the series of instructions by Chairman Mao and the Party Central Committee on the criticism of Lin Piao and Confucius, so long as we strengthen the Party's leadership and revolutionary unity, we shall be able to broaden and deepen the movement to criticize Lin Piao and Confucius over a long period of time and further promote production. Let us welcome the coming year 1975 with new achievements in revolution and production!
