INTERJECTIONS AT AN ANTI-REVISIONIST REPORTS MEETING

Is it easier to beat the snake by luring it to come out or by crawling into the dark snake hole? (We supported the release of Suslov‘s report. It was not released, but it came out after eight commentaries were made.)

Ever since 1956, the Soviet Union has denounced Stalin. After we have published our first and second comments, they lost their own initiatives.

Not only have our two families taken this position, but Eastern Europe has also begun to follow suit. (The Soviet Union criticized Romania for its self-reliance. Romania fought back, using our own criticisms against the Soviet Union.) This is no longer an internal affair, but has become publicly announced in radio broadcasts.

China is not the first to be involved in the conflict between control and anti-control; it is the countries of Eastern Europe. (Romania has already made preparations to sever her economic relations with the Soviet Union. She cannot make her own armaments, and has asked China to send someone to visit Romania. We won‘t have to talk to make people scared; we don‘t have to talk there. It would be very important if we only shake hands with them.)

We must get prepared, prepared for the break, and try to let the situation drag If anything should happen, it must not catch us by surprise. What happens in the world is that after a long union, there will be division, and after a long division, there will be union (Sino-Soviet relations).

The Nanchang Uprising was a tremendous event, and in the wake of it, there were left only a few troops, growing later into an outfit of 300,000 troops. After the Long March, a few thousand troops were left, and they were developed later. A mountain does not have to go very high. (The old Communist Party of Brazil had 40,000 militants, and a new Party has been formed with only 6,000 militants. Which is more reliable: 40,000 or 6,000 militants?)

It is only with revisionism that there can be „Long Live Leninism“!

If one does not pay attention, there is bound to be revisionism. If one pays attention to it, it may appear or may not appear. When one is prepared for its appearance, it may not appear at all.
