Mao strove to take public opinion into account, and that led him
to these talks. There were big concessions. What was the problem?
After the agreement was signed by Chairman Mao in the name of the
CCP and the KMT headed by Chiang Kai-shek, the latter violated the
agreement and launched a counteroffensive. Mao didn't violate
any principles. We should not read in a general way but rather
see the application to reality. Thus it can be said that politics

Struggle is a great and constant class war directed by political
leaders. It has two forms:
"Politics is war without bloodshed."
"War is politics with bloodshed."
Both are forms
of the great political war that is the class struggle, and the latter
is the development of the contradiction between Revolution and Counterrevolution,
whose essence is: Fight and make trouble. The two laws are a Great
Law of the Class Struggle, a contradiction whose terms are: on the
one side, make trouble, which inevitably leads to ruin, and on the
other side, fight, which inevitably leads to victory. Both processes
pass through failures; while the old leads to ruin, the new leads
to victory. This is a great, inexorable Law. Do not fear failure;
the problem is to struggle, and thus the importance of the great

think, who are incapable of thinking for themselves; if it weren't
like that, imperialism would not be the class oppressor that it

to complex political problems (have commitment and enough decisiveness

NEW DECISION AND NEW DEFINITION.
1. A stage
of the Revolution has ended. Fight for a future wave of the World
Proletarian Revolution (WPR)!
and indelible stage of the WPR has ended.
a World Political Ebb (It is strategic and global); this stage
has left us three great banners: Marx-Lenin-Mao, which are concretized
in the fact that MLM is unconquerable and untarnishable.
In 1891, Engels,
in the "Introduction to The Civil War in France", taught that there
would be an ebb in the WPR and that it was not possible to seize
power. It was necessary to resolve the problem of new forms of struggle
and organization, principally military questions. He makes a summation
of 50 years of the WPR: there was a general political ebb (GPE);
Marx himself referred to this when he founded the First International
(International Working Men's Association). There is a difference
between the Manifesto of the Communist Party and the basic
argument for the International Workingmen's Association.
In 1891, imperialism
was undergoing a restructuring; a new division of the world was
underway. For 30 years it was not possible to seize power, nor resolve
the problem of forms of struggle and organization. It is not the
same today. In 1917, Lenin resolved it, and in 1949 Chairman Mao
resolved the problem of the road to revolution in semifeudal, semicolonial
and bureaucrat capitalist countries, and in the Great Proletarian
Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), he resolved the problem of the
continuation of the socialist revolution under the dictatorship
of the proletariat.
Mao: Chapter on Cadres, in the 1st quote where he speaks about training
we held that the Strategic Offensive of the World Revolution (SOWR)
began in the 1980s; today we have developed and we consider that
the period 1976-1980 represents only a few years. The SOWR began
with the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, because it is the
highest peak reached by the WPR and the National Liberation Movement
(NLM) under the leadership of the proletariat. Thus Chairman Mao
sought to develop and deepen the WPR.
Mao's Quotations, chapter on imperialism, page 72: There are two
winds, the east wind is prevailing. In 1957, page 77: "Imperialism
will not last long."
grasp the great stages, recall Chairman Mao: "the next 50-100 years...".
This means 2010 to 2060; therefore, a new wave is gestating, understand
it as part of the development of the contradiction between restoration
and counter-restoration. Keep in mind historical experience, the
law of the development of the Class Struggle. The Bourgeois Revolution
took 300 years to consolidate itself. In the sixteenth century,
the revolution took place in Holland, which was smashed by Spain
in the seventeenth century. In England, the triumph of the Bourgeois
Revolution took place in two parts: the revolution led by O. Cromwell
in 1640 failed, and in 1688 the "Glorious Revolution" triumphed,
with 48 years between the two. In the eighteenth century, the emancipation
of the United States occurred in 1776; the Revolution triumphed
in France in 1789. England became the world's leading power after
the defeat of the "Invincible Armada" (Naval Battle), so that it
took England almost 90 years before the bourgeoisie won out and
If the bourgeoisie
as a class needed 300 years to consolidate its power, it cannot
be demanded that the proletariat resolve it in the 66 years (2/3
of a century) that it has exercised its dictatorship in a State,
leading Socialist Revolution.
There is a
difference with the GPE of 1891 (Engels summed it up).
GPE derives from the process of restoration, from the creation of
unfavourable public opinion of this whole stage of the Revolution
(140 years). So far, the GPE has lasted 3 years. In the light of
Marxism - and this is decisive and key in order to sketch out the
strategy of the WPR in the New Great Wave - we understand why this
period is a hinge between the culmination of a stage of the WPR
and the future Great Wave of the WPR. This is the argument for the
general political withdrawal, among other questions.
Marx taught the analysis of the problem of tactics". Dare to think,
dare to act, dare to decide, going against the tide is a Marxist
principle. Does everything we have analyzed go against what we've
been upholding, that "Revolution is the main trend"? We must make
From the historical point of view, it is incontrovertible and
inexorable that revolution is the main trend; it's enough to invoke
the process of development of the new, of contradiction; take into
account the example: the Pampas River arises and through a long,
zigzagging course full of bends and setbacks, it always reaches
the sea. We have to understand that history cannot go backwards,
development takes place in spirals and is uneven. Time is counted
in decades, not years; historical steps are not so brief. See the
accompanying general diagram.
AS A POLITICAL TENDENCY (Study very well). It will take at
least 5 to 6 years for the international situation and panorama
to clear up. (io) How is the United States' unshared
hegemony being concretized? How is the disintegration of Russia
being concretized? The strengthening and role of the other powers,
Japan and Germany? As for the camp of revolution, how is the General
Political Ebb (GPE) of the Revolution manifesting itself? What is
the opinion of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM)
regarding these questions? Chairman Mao teaches us that there are
100 paper communist parties. How is this manifesting itself today?
See what is the situation of the proletariat's parties and organizations.
What is the situation of the unions? These are realities that we
must thoroughly analyze. What is the situation of the class organizations,
the peasant organizations, of national and world public opinion?
The key is the leadership of the Communist Parties, the question
of the class, of the Anti-imperialist Movement.
thoroughly analyze the development of the class struggle, its laws,
tendencies and perspectives. The old mole, as Marx taught, has not
disappeared, he continues his work.
political tendency doesn't exist, the historical tendency doesn't
exist. Today it is underground; we have to be able to understand
It has fallen
on us, and we are carrying the rubble of the disintegrations, the
restorations (USSR and China), but it exists daily within the Communist
Parties, in the communists, in the class, in the anti-imperialist
struggle. Socialism has existed, we've seen it, the main right is
the right to seize political power: it's right to rebel! And as
a consequence, it does not disappear, it is an underlying political
tendency. Marx analyzed this process; he taught us about the "deep
waters", "the old mole once again [grubs] the earth", thus it manifests
itself politically as underground waters; the political question
is decisive: the leadership of the Communist Parties. It's necessary
to go back and study this; it is very important to reaffirm revolution
as the main historical trend; politically it is operating daily.
On the world level, there is a new redivision of the loot, new contradictions
surely imperialism is dying - Third Plenary Session (IIIP.S.).
How is this
manifesting itself today? It continues unfolding, slowly but inexorably
dying. (Keep in mind the IIIP.S. on the sinking of the various imperialists);
but at the same time, there is a transitory recovery. What
Lenin taught in "Imperialism Highest Stage", "Social... and Imp...",
"Revis... and Imp..." is correct and fully valid.
we see the question of imperialism today? We see it in the light
of MLM to resolve the new problems.
What are the
material bases of this situation? The economic base that determined
it was the oil, coal and steel industries. Today new sources of
economic work are developing, some very advanced: there are computers,
electronic communications, these are great processes of development,
genetics, the monopolies are paying attention to genetic modifications
(manipulation in plants and animals), even in new varieties; this
is a new line of oppression and exploitation. Always see the two
sides of a contradiction. All oppression gives rise to a class movement
If we look
at the question of war, the development of strategic weapons generates
a greater militarization of industry, greater investments linked
to electronic warfare, armament that is expensive to produce and
maintain and which rapidly becomes obsolescent. Their problems with
economic recession and its restrictions lead to the development
of conventional weapons. The privatization of the means of production
accumulated by the state is another worldwide phenomenon. How much
have the states accumulated with the means of production in their
hands? All this is being passed to the monopolies, to strengthen
their power. All these are questions that determine the bases for
this transitory economic recovery.
If we look
at the question of the state in particular, we see a tendency to
decrease its social functions. Who will assume its functions? In
the imperialist countries, the monopolies, for example, are taking
on the organization of insurance (in this country, the AFP), health
care, and educational services. A similar phenomenon is taking place
in regard to security, not only in terms of armament but also to
thwart or carry out industrial espionage. All this poses the question
of the various situations that form the context of the process of
the reactionary state of the dictatorship of the big bourgeoisie
(in our case, the big bourgeoisie and the landlords subjugated by
imperialism). Today their Armed Forces are being strengthened
and have a greater capacity to take political decisions. (io)
See the role
being taken on by the monopolies. Yesterday they divided up the
world; today they take on state functions.
the international situation, the superpowers have not changed. Russia
continues to be a superpower based on its military capacity, its
strategic atomic power. It has problems in terms of its influence
abroad; its national problems are escalating, along with external
security problems. In Japan, Yeltsin told them not to claim the
four disputed islands. Russia continues to be a pole of influence.
See its international policy as undergoing a process of readjustment
and how it's going to back U.S. hegemony. Japan is becoming the
second power - it pays growing attention to its military weakness
and seeks to become more powerful, aiming to develop its own military
power. Germany is sinking France (its famous ally) to strengthen
its own currency.
they are not erecting a new ideology, they are expressing its decrepitude.
They increasingly make use of the "failure of socialism", and with
this shore up their economic recovery; they say they have no ideology,
but they uphold liberalism. These are old banners they are dusting
off and using to manipulate public opinion.
Pay a lot
of attention to and be concerned with seeing their slow agony and
transitory recovery. The question of ebb -- if it is not seen in
this way, imperialism can't be fought. Lenin taught that imperialism
overall holds back the development of the productive forces. This
is a general law, it will be determinate at the end of the day.
On one side we see great abundance, and on the other side of the
contradiction we see 15 million children die every year before their
first birthday. Both questions can't be surmounted, they form a
How are the
empires sinking? (III.PS.) We analyze that this process takes place
through long periods, not short ones. Under slavery, the most developed
imperialism was Rome, and it sank through a process that lasted
over five centuries; under feudalism, the most outstanding imperialism,
Spain, also sank over the course of two centuries; under capitalism,
England did the same through a long period, over a century; Yankee
imperialism consolidated its position as a superpower after the
second world war, in a process that lasted five decades. Consequently,
one can predict that the process will be long, but obviously it
will be briefer than the previous ones, though clearly these are
and Revolution: we have fought two revisionisms, the old one that

there have been five years of recession. In 1993, the GDP grew by
6% after five years of growing recession. Inflation is also being
reduced. If we look at '82 to '93 from a strategic perspective,
the GDP fell by 26% and the population grew by 30%, so that they
still need to recover by 20% even without taking the population
increment into account. We must strive to see the steps being taken,
the increments obtained, as objective facts.

what is the situation with bureaucrat capitalism today?
There is no
powerful liberation movement, the struggle of the proletariat and
the people is weakened, and consequently is neither powerful nor
strong. Therefore, bureaucrat capitalism is being given a new impulse
and its plan is becoming viable, political and social rights are
becoming more restricted, all this is leading to the fact that the
deep class struggle will nourish the old mole.
