Victor Kalivas HIST 100 - Pine Friday, March 28, 2008 Mao Zedong Speech - Communist Party of China -1 This source is a speech by Mao Zedong, which was given on April 28, 1969 to the Chinese Communist Party. In it Mao Zedong talks about how the Soviets criticize the Chinese form of communism saying that the Chinese are “no longer a party of the proletariat,” but instead a “military-bureaucratic system.” He dismisses the Soviets by saying, “let them talk,” claiming that China represents the true values of a communist government. Mao Zedong speaks of how they should begin freeing people who were put in captivity because they had offended the principles of communism, and of a possible war with the Soviets. He tells the people that they must unite, and strengthen the communist party, suggesting that a second revolution may be necessary. But he assures them that they will be victorious as long as they stay true to the country. I got this source from the following website: http://trotsky.org/reference/archive/mao/selected-
