Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!
UNITE THE COMMUNIST PARTIES IMPOSING MAOISM AS COMMAND AND GUIDE OF THE WORLD REVOLUTION!
The Editorial Departments of Renmin Ribao (People's Daily) and Hongqi (Red Flag) – On the Question of Stalin, 1963
Today, imperialism is sinking in its final crisis. The imperialist powers try to escape it by competing for the markets, the raw materials, spheres of influence, to be able to revive their broken economies, to refloat imperialism according to their own interests. In these conditions the imperialist war and fascism have become a necessity for the imperialist bourgeoisies. All over the planet, and principally in the countries of the Third World, the masses organize themselves and fight against imperialism, against reaction and against revisionism. There are millions of proletarians and poor peasants who fight under the banner of Maoism in Peru, India, Philippines, etc. The deepest masses know that only by fighting against revisionism and only with people’s war, with the leadership of Communist Parties, is it possible to reach the society without classes, the golden communism.
Every advance of the communist movement has been made in struggle against the bourgeois positions within it. Thus, Marx and Engels fought against Bakunin, Dühring, etc. It fell to Lenin to fight and crush the revisionism that emerged from the II International (Kautsky, Bernstein, Plechanov, etc.). Comrade Stalin justly and correctly stated that we had entered the stage of Leninism as a development of Marxism and fought against the revisionism of Trotsky and others in defense of Marxism, the Bolshevik revolution and of the world proletarian revolution.
Maoism as the third, new and higher stage of Marxism was forged in direct combat against imperialism, the last stage of capitalism. This meant upholding the revolutionary struggle against the world wars and the predatory genocidal thirst of imperialism. The international proletarian movement and the national liberation movements were defined, but there was also the restoration of capitalism in the USSR and, therefore, the struggle to death against Khrushchev’s revisionism, against the revisionist thesis of “peaceful coexistence”, the revisionism of Teng, Liu, Lin Piao and others. It must be emphasized that Chairman Mao led two great peaks and milestones of the world proletarian revolution in the 20th century: the Chinese revolution in 1949 and the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (that stretched over a whole decade: from 1966 to 1976), and that he was recognized as Great Leadership and as the highest, most consistent and elevated cadre and leader of the Chinese revolution.
It is Chairman Gonzalo who assumes the task of establishing Maoism as third, new and higher stage of Marxism, and it is the same Chairman Gonzalo who is recognized as Great Leader of the Party and the revolution and of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Peru, in hard and forceful struggle against old revisionism and against the new revisionism with a “maoist” letterhead: a tamed “maoism” that aims for the betrayal of the class, that has the criminal and infamous goal of negotiation and participation in the electoral circus of the old and rotten state.
Chairman Mao has developed Marxist philosophy as well as the political economy and scientific socialism.
In political economy he established that the politics are in command, fighting against the revisionist thesis of the “productive forces”. Applying dialectics he established that the consciousness can change the reality and with political power develop the productive forces. An extraordinary example was the “Great Leap Forward”. Applying dialectics and criticizing the building of socialism in the USSR, North Korea and the countries of the East, the CPC takes heavy industry as the center and at the same time the light industry and agriculture as the base. The Great Leap Forward meant the participation of the masses, millions of proletarians and poor peasants made a great effort to transform the relations of production in order to develop the productive forces, embodying the fact that it is the masses that make history led by their Party, and not the technicians. In the organizational, the people’s commune was realized.
When it comes to scientific socialism, the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution is the most important point in the development of Marxism-Leninism. Once again, applying dialectics to reality and seeing the relationship between superstructure and base, Chairman Mao defined the objectives and the targets of the GPCR:
“Although the bourgeoisie has been overthrown, it is still trying to use the old ideas, culture, customs and habits of the exploiting classes to corrupt the masses, capture their minds and endeavour to stage a comeback. The proletariat must do the exact opposite: it must meet head-on every challenge of the bourgeoisie in the ideological field and use the new ideas, culture, customs and habits of the proletariat to change the mental outlook of the whole of society. At present, our objective is to struggle against and overthrow those persons in authority who are taking the capitalist road, to criticize and repudiate the reactionary bourgeois academic “authorities” and the ideology of the bourgeoisie and all other exploiting classes and to transform education, literature and art and all other parts of the superstructure not in correspondence with the socialist economic base, so as to facilitate the consolidation and development of the socialist system.”
Therefore, the fundamental point of Maoism is the power. Either we are for the power to the working class, or we are serving to hold back the revolution, serving the power of the bourgeoisie.
Today, Maoism is expressed in its highest form in the people’s wars and principally in the people’s war in Peru. The armed masses led by the PCP build new power while destroying the old power without tailing after any imperialist power. The CC of the PCP develops the people’s war serving the world proletarian revolution, fighting in Peru against all capitulation, maintains the course while crushing the new revisionism of the ROL and the LOL; and fights on the international level against Avakian’s and Prachanda’s new revisionism and all convergences. It holds high the principle that “political power grows out of the barrel of a gun” and fights against the imperialist plan of “peace accords”. A part of this struggle is to blow up the new hoax that imperialism, Peruvian reaction and revisionism are staging against the people’s war in Peru and its Great Leadership. Today, the Peruvian reaction is promoting supposed “visits” to Chairman Gonzalo in 2014. With the collaboration of the rats of the ROL and through a supposed replacement of the scoundrel so-called lawyer Crespo, they have appointed another lawyer, one Carl Peter Erlinder, for the “defense” of Chairman Gonzalo in the Interamerican Human Rights Court. As the masses and the people know, the felon Crespo is today the head of the plan for “amnesty” and an electoral cretin. With these “visits” and with this new lawyer, they aim to wipe themselves clean, to say that the Chairman is sick, among other sophisms and lies, to continue to avoid the public presentation and go on with the hoax of the “peace accords”, a hoax that has been blown to a thousand pieces over and over again by the very development of the people’s war led by the CC of the PCP.
On these dates, when we celebrate the birthdays of Chairman Mao and Chairman Gonzalo, we take position and say to imperialism, reaction and revisionism, that …….., that once more their tricks shall be crushed and disemboweled; we reaffirm ourselves in that no matter how many farces and malicious stories they invent, no matter how much they want to lead the masses away from the road of the revolution and the people’s war, the people and the class are clear: only with Communist Parties of a new type, Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, militarized, that all-embracingly lead people’s wars without wavering in the principles, will we reach the society without classes, the golden communism.
LONG LIVE THE CXX ANNIVERSARY OF THE BIRTH OF CHAIRMAN MAO TSE-TUNG!
