Principles Of Educating Youth


[SOURCE: Long Live Mao Zedong Thought, a Red Guard Publication.]

The principles of educating youth are:

1. Teach them to grasp Marxism-Leninism and to overcome petit-bourgeois consciousness.

2. Teach them to have discipline and organization and to oppose anarchism and liberatarianism in organization.

3. Teach them to penetrate resolutely into the lower levels of practical work and to oppose looking down on practical experience.

4. Teach them to become close to the workers and peasants, to serve them resolutely, and to oppose the consciousness of looking down on workers and peasants.
