Immortal are the Flames of Proletarian Struggles
This essay was published in the Hindi journal ‘Dayitvabodh’ in its May-June 1992 issue.
The world has undergone many changes since the time of its writing but the summation of the first round of the great world historic class war for the emancipation of the proletariat and the predictions made in it are still basically correct. In fact, the world situation today is proving correct the statements about the second round of the world historic class war.
We believe that this will be important and thought-provoking material for proletarian revolutionaries and left intellectuals as well as all those who have an interest in reading about the development of Marxist science.
Problems of Socialism, Capitalist Restoration and the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution
The present essay was published in the Hindi journal ‘Dayitvabodh’ in its November-December 1993 issue under the Mao Tse-tung Birth Centenary Series but it was written in 1990. It was first presented as the base paper at the five-day All-India seminar at Gorakhpur organised by the Long-live Marxism Forum (6-10 June, 1990). The topic of the seminar was “Problems of Socialism, Capitalist Restoration and the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.”
The essay presents a class-analysis of the events in the erstwhile Soviet Union and East European countries at that time (1990) and underlines the epochal contributions of Mao Tse-tung while thoroughly analysing the causes of capitalist restoration and the problems of socialism. The author wrote a supplement to clarify his position and include some new points after the discussions during the five-day seminar, and it has also been included in this booklet.
In the development of Marxist science assessment of the contributions of Mao Tse-tung is not an academic question or a superfluous mental exercise. It is a question of understanding Marxism in its present stage of development in full measure as a guiding principle for new Proletarian Revolutions. It is a question of understanding the point that when we say today that Marxism- Leninism and Mao thought or Marxism-Leninism-Maoism is our guiding principle then what does it mean and what is its significance? Reflecting on Maoism as a noun is basically a question of reflecting on the point that whether it is possible for any party to ignore the teachings of the foremost milestone of Proletarian Revolution that was established in the form of Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution under the guidance and leadership of Mao, and still be able to carry forward a Socialist Revolution and prevent capitalist restoration? It is a question as to whether or not Marxist science was enriched throughout by the experiment of Proletarian Cultural Revolution and also whether or not the acceptance or non-acceptance of Proletarian Cultural Revolution is the dividing line between Marxism and Revisionism?
