Around the country, the Workers Viewpoint Organization held memorial programs to commemorate and reaffirm the great teachings of Chairman Mao. From New York to Hawaii, from the industrial heartland of Detroit to the Black Belt South, lively but serious discussions and programs were held.

In New York, after a speech by the Workers Viewpoint Organization a slide show was shown which focused on Chairman Mao’s role in the Chinese revolution, and especially the significance of the Cultural Revolution in China. It went into describing extensively the socialist new things that have flourished under the dictatorship of the proletariat under the leadership of Chairman Mao, especially focusing on the question of the party and how to combat and prevent revisionism.

There was a lively question and answer period following the slide show in which various questions were raised from the audience relating to the international situation, the concept of the Three Worlds of Chairman Mao, the relationship between the base and superstructure, productive forces and productive relations, the character of the state under the dictatorship of the proletariat, and the two line struggle around education in China.

All who attended reflected more deeply on the profound historical significance of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, particularly its contribution to the international communist movement and the dictatorship of the proletariat. All those who attended understood more deeply the inevitability of revolutionary socialism. All who attended were made more firm in their resolve to continue to walk in Chairman Mao’s revolutionary footsteps and apply his teachings to make proletarian revolution here.

This was particularly important in light of those scums who wave high the banner of Chairman Mao in words but in deeds trample it into the ground. When he was alive, all these “friends of China” pledged themselves to follow his line, but just as readily, after he passed away, have now started to attack his teachings on the continued revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat and the three worlds. These “friends of the Chinese people” are false friends; they have no concern for the proletariat and the oppressed people around the world, and certainly they have no love for the great Chinese people.

The “Communist Party (ML)” (OL), who have historically mouthed platitudes on Mao Tse-tung Thought, never studied nor understood a damn thing about Mao Tse-tung Thought. They don’t even have any concern for the U.S. proletariat, let alone the Chinese people. The “RCP”, another “friend of the Chinese people,” didn’t even hold a memorial on the first anniversary of Chairman Mao’s death, while at the same time have increased their attack on the correct line of three worlds and Chairman Mao’s teaching on party building. The rest of the “friends of the Chinese people” don’t even bother to pay lip service to the highest development of Marxism anymore, Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-tung Thought. Some of the worst political speculators even went so far as to reverse the correct verdict that was established years ago on the question of the disintegration of the socialist camp, the question of irreconcilible inter-imperialist contradictions, and the revolutionary role of the Third World against both superpowers. A few years ago, a Trotskyite sect called “Communist League” was expelled from the communist movement; now all these “communists” who participated in expelling the CL are now taking up the very same Trotskyite positions. These scum of the earth have no proletarian morality at all. It shows that they will unscrupulously throw the principles of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-tung Thought out the window; they will be crushed by the wheels of history.

The WVO reaffirms and daily deepens our appreciation of the correctness of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-tung Thought. It is Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-tung Thought that will guide the U.S. working class through the twists and turns of class struggle to victory!
