Unless you have investigated a problem, you will be deprived of the right to speak on it. Isn’t that too harsh? Not in the least. When you have not probed into a problem, into the present facts and its past history, and know nothing of its essentials, whatever you say about it will undoubtedly be nonsense. Talking nonsense solves no problems, as everyone knows, so why is it unjust to deprive you of the right to speak? Quite a few comrades always keep their eyes shut and talk nonsense, and for a Communist that is disgraceful. How can a Communist keep his eyes shut and talk nonsense?
Unified CPN-Maoist Vice-chairman Narayan Kaji Shrestha today said the upcoming General Convention of his party would reorient its ideological course of achieving “socialism through new-democracy” (propounded by Chairman Mao in China) to achieving “socialism through capitalism”.
[…] “We have concluded it is not possible to achieve socialism via the model of new-democracy in the current national and global context.” He said as society was preferred capitalism‚ the party had decided to change its ideological course.
i still don’t understand dialectical i wish it would click already
dialectics is the idea of things (ideas in hegel, history in marx) are formed by opposing forces clashing and that clash defining a new, intermediate position
Dialectics for Kids gets linked whenever this is brought up so i guess i will be the one to do it this time
The Maoist idea of dialectics is somewhat different, with the emphasis on “one divides into two” and the idea of distinguishing antagonistic and non-antagonistic contradictions. There are some good texts here that start to dig into these differences.
This video, featuring Chinese red cavalry soldiers engaged in horseback rifle battles after a nuclear blast, may seem funny or perhaps horrifying today. But we shouldn’t discount the morale boosting effect of images like this, in line with Mao’s teaching that imperialists and all reactionaries are paper tigers. One of the necessary steps in ending China’s century of humiliation was to rally the Chinese people for a common national project even when they were surrounded by foreign powers with unbeatable weapons and military might. Without the political line depicted in this video China might still be a weak and subjugated country dominated by foreign powers.
"Dialectical and historical materialism teaches us that what is important is primarily is not that which at the given moment seems to be durable and yet is already beginning to die away, but that which is arising and developing, even though at the given moment it may not appear to be durable, for only that which is arising and developing is invincible."
