Hold high the bright red banner of Marxism-Leninism and proletarian internationalism!

Part 1

The “inevitable struggle” that has broken out between Marxism-Leninism and revisionism and opportunism of all hues on the question of the theory of “three worlds” and the restoration of Teng Hsiao-ping is the reflection not of the defeat, but of the victory of Marxism-Leninism. The sophistry and the subterfuges that the theoreticians of the “three worlds” and the supporters of Teng Hsiao-ping use to cause maximum ideological confusion is the reflection of the utter bankruptcy of therevisionists and opportunists of all hues. Further, it reflects the utter desperation the imperialists and social-imperialists and reactionaries of the world find themselves in and shows that the class struggle waged by the international proletariat, far from being eliminated as the theoreticians of the “three worlds” so treacherously claim, is vigorously surging forward with the genuine socialist country, the People’s Socialist Republic of Albania, at the head.

The rise of ideological confusion spearheaded by the theoreticians of “three worlds” and the supporters of Teng Hsiao-ping, can have only one response to it: vigorous and determined opposition. Our Party has courageously countered all the blackmail and slander of the theoreticians of the “three worlds” and the supporters of Teng Hsiao-ping and will continue to do so.

The struggle against the theoreticians of “three worlds” and the supporters of Teng Hsiao-ping is complicated as they behave like chameleons who change their colours according to the situation in order to deceive the revolutionary forces. Just a few years ago, they were opposed to Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought. But now they are putting forward “Mao Tsetung Thought” in opposition to Marxism-Leninism. The spearhead of their attack is against the theory of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao Tsetung and Enver Hoxha. They go so far to oppose Marxism-Leninism that they state that “Marx and Engels founded the doctrine of scientific socialism and the principles of the dictatorship of the proletariat, but they had no experience of the victory of the proletarian revolution and therefore such a question had never been posed for them in a concrete way.” If one goes by this agnostic brainless philosophical logic, then Marx and Engels “had no experience of the victory of” scientific socialism either, “and therefore such a question”, that is the founding of the doctrine of scientific socialism could “never have been posed for them in a concrete way”. Lenin pointed out “that many idealists and all agnostics...call the materialists metaphysicians, because it seems to them that to recognise the existence of an external world independent of the human mind is to transcend the bounds of experience.” Thus, how could the question of proletarian revolution “have been posed” for Marx and Engels “in a concrete way”, when it was not in the bounds of their experience” By pursuing this agnostic brainless philosophical logic, they not only dismiss Marx and Engels, but also dismiss Lenin who “died too early to see with his own eyes the completion of the socialist transformation of the ownership of the means of production and it was impossible for him to answer the question” of class struggle under conditions of socialism “clearly and definitively”. And, of course, Stalin is dismissed because “theoretically he did not acknowledge that after the collectivisation of agriculture, the contradiction between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie and between the socialist road and the capitalist road continued in the Soviet Union.” And the historical experience of the dictatorship of the proletariat in Albania does not count.

Every word the theoreticians of the “three worlds” utter is a lie. It is a deliberate and calculated lie in order to hit at Marxism-Leninism under the hoax of being followers of “Mao Tsetung Thought”.

Lenin pointed out in dealing with the opportunists of the Second International:

But the whole thing is crystal-clear. The immense strength of the opportunists and the chauvinists stems from their alliance with the bourgeoisie, with the governments and the General Staffs. This is often overlooked in Russia, where it is assumed that the opportunists are a section of the socialist parties, that there always have been and will be two extreme wings within those parties, that ’extremes’ should be avoided, etc., etc. – and plenty of similar philistine copy book maxims.

The theoreticians of “three worlds” have capitulated to imperialism and social-imperialism and the reactionary bourgeoisie of each country alongside with the revisionists of the Second International, Khrushchovite revisionists and all other opportunists. Our Party always considered them police socialists, organized by the reactionary bourgeoisie and its state to split the revolutionary forces and to cause maximum ideological confusion. The recent history and behaviour of the opportunists in Canada who call themselves “genuine” “Marxist-Leninists” is further proof of this correct analysis.

Our Party wages a consistent, continuous and firm ideological struggle against the ideology of the bourgeoisie and of the revisionists and opportunists of all hues and carries on this form of proletarian struggle as an essential and decisive part of the revolutionary movement for emancipation. Lenin teaches that “Marxism is the theory of the proletarian movement for emancipation.” The theoreticians of “three worlds” are opposed to Marxism and to the “proletarian movement for emancipation”.
