“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 revisionist leaders who call compliance with imperialism “peaceful coexistence” harbour a rancorous hatred for revolutionaries.

The Belgian Communists and other vanguard workers were deeply angered when they were informed about the way the Khrushchov group has made serious attacks – particularly vicious in the economic field – on those socialist countries where the Communist and Workers’ Parties are holding high the banner of Marxism-Leninism.

They share your pride and joy when they see that these odious manoeuvres of the revisionists have failed and that these difficulties have now been successfully surmounted by applying the principle of self-reliance.

There is no need here to dwell on how all the awakened working people abhor and oppose the Khrushchov revisionists’ supplying of arms to the reactionary Indian bourgeoisie to help it in its aggression against socialist China.

Comrades, to put it in one sentence: modern revisionism is totally reactionary and counter-revolutionary both in theory and practice.
