In the hard and prolonged new democratic revolution of China, Mao Tse-tung Thought was developing: Chairman Mao fusing the universal truths of Marxism-Leninism with the concrete practice of the Chinese Revolution, discovered and deepened the character of the national-democratic or New Democratic revolution governing semi-feudal and semi-colonial societies, the path of these revolutions of „encircling the cities from the countryside“, the laws of People‘s War and the three magic weapons of the revolution: the Communist Party, the Armed Struggle and the United Front. These contributions opened up a broad and prosperous revolutionary road for the Chinese people and traced the bright red line of the glorious Communist Party of China (CPCh), swept away Right and „Left“ deviations and made Chairman Mao Tse-tung the director and Great Leader of the Chinese Revolution. In the midst of this creative practice, Mao made his masterly contributions to dialectical materialism and the Marxist conception of art and literature, which have since become treasures of Marxism-Leninism.

With the triumph of the national-democratic revolution in China and synthesizing the experience of 28 years of indeclinable struggle, Mao established the thesis of the people‘s democratic dictatorship led by the proletariat represented by the Communist Party and based on the worker-peasant alliance as a form of the dictatorship of the proletariat and an instrument for developing socialist society. Developing the analysis of socialist society, taking up Marx and Lenin, and deepening their theses, he raises the class struggle in socialist society and the ways to carry it out, the long duration of this transitional period in which the struggle of who will defeat whom between capitalism and socialism, the struggle against the peaceful restoration of capitalism and the ways to combat it, as well as the thesis of building socialism, the struggle against the peaceful restoration of capitalism and the ways to combat it, as well as the thesis of building socialism, the struggle of the proletariat represented by the Communist Party, and the thesis of building socialism. as well as the thesis of building socialism in all fields always bearing in mind the class struggle and the need to put politics in the foreground in everything as a way and means of guaranteeing to carry the revolution to the end and not to stop in the middle of the road.

Fighting imperialism and the reactionaries, Chairman Mao establishes the Leninist thesis that imperialism and all reactionaries are paper tigers, teaching us to despise them strategically because history has condemned them to disappear, while at the same time to consider them with prudence in tactics because their collapse and desperation makes them capable of the greatest cruelty and iniquity; that the nature of imperialism does not change or can not change because it corresponds to its essence exploitation and war to sustain its oppression over the peoples; that Yankee imperialism is the worst and most bloodthirsty enemy of the peoples of the world and that against it all peoples already form a united front.

Fighting unswervingly together with the peoples oppressed by imperialism and synthesizing the experience of the national liberation movements, Chairman Mao Tse-tung has established a united front against imperialism. Mao Tse-tung has laid down the Marxist-Leninist thesis that „the East wind prevails over the West wind“, that is to say that the strength of the revolutionary camp is greater than that of the reactionary camp and that every day it will be more so because the new has never been defeated by the old and the new is represented by socialism and the revolutionary forces while the old are imperialism and all the reactionaries; that while the imperialists and all reactionaries are subject to the law of rioting and failing and rioting again until their end, the law of the people is to fight and fail and fight again until the final triumph; that the People‘s War is unbeatable and that it leads inevitably to the triumph of the oppressed peoples and the defeat of imperialism, and however long and winding the road of the People‘s War may be and however many triumphs and failures may occur in it, in the end the people will triumph.

In his struggle for the unmasking and smashing of contemporary revisionism, Chairman Mao, as in his time Lenin, has ideologically destroyed Khrushchevite revisionism in the leadership of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU), demonstrating the betrayal and abandonment of the principles of Marxism-Leninism by the Khrushchevites with and without Khrushchev and unmasking their collusion with Yankee imperialism for the division of the world; has analyzed the internal and external causes of Khrushchevism and teaches us the ways to combat it, and how from the struggle against this revisionism Marxism will emerge ideologically strengthened, the Communist Parties firmer and the revolutionary struggle will have a greater ideological and political momentum and vigor; and that, like its predecessors, Khrushchevite revisionism is doomed to defeat and Marxism-Leninism to achieve a new and great development.

Thus, born from the very entrails of the contemporary revolutionary struggle, Mao Tse-tung Thought is the objective expression of the laws of the New Democratic revolution, of the construction of the socialist society, analysis of the nature and essence of imperialism and reactionaries, of the development and triumph of the national liberation struggles and the unmasking of the causes and essence of contemporary revisionism. For all these reasons, while Mao‘s Thought nestles in the hearts of the peoples and arms the minds of all revolutionaries, the imperialists, particularly Yankee imperialism, the reactionaries and the Khrushchevite revisionists hate in terror and attack with insane violence the living Marxism of our time; but this hatred is good confirmation of its correctness and the warmth with which it is received by the hearts of the peoples is great proof of its revolutionary authenticity.

For all that has been said, and no matter how much the Khrushchevite traitors, their puppets and their Yankee allies may fuss and shout, Mao Tse-tung Thought is Marxism-Leninism inherited and developed in a brilliant, creative and general way, in this epoch in which imperialism is rushing towards its total collapse and is advancing towards victory in the whole world; it is the summit of Marxism-Leninism of our epoch.
