“Theory” and Practice of the Modern Revisionists

A speech delivered at the Higher Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, June 10, 1964


The international situation is excellent for the revolutionary forces. The general crisis of capitalism is deepening but at the same time, the aggressiveness of imperialism, its evil deeds, its crimes and its manifold plots are also on the increase.

In these circumstances, the revisionists are acting as auxiliaries of imperialism.

They are stepping up their manoeuvres to divide the socialist camp, to split the international communist movement and the Communist Parties.

They want to smother the revolutionary movement for national liberation.

They try to disarm the working class in the capitalist countries, and drag them into the quagmire of neo-reformism.

They want to hold back the proletariat from fulfilling its historic mission of overthrowing the capitalist social order and carrying through the socialist revolution.

They try to smash proletarian internationalism. They especially want to place the working class in capitalist countries in opposition to the revolutionary struggle for liberation of the oppressed peoples and nations and make them collaborate with imperialism, first of all, with U.S. imperialism, the main bulwark of colonialism of today.

This is how they have slid down the slippery slope of class collaboration into racism!

The speed of their degeneration reflects the deepening of the general crisis of capitalism.
