Germans, Russians and Chinese

Germans, Russians and Chinese

Everywhere we have been so far in China we have seen pictures of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin as well as the many pictures of Chairman Mao. The Chinese people, through political study classes at schools, on their jobs and in their spare time, understand the relevance of these few German and Russian Marxist leaders and theorists to their struggle to build socialism because they see their works as living guides to understanding and changing the world rather than relics of the past.

The fact that the Chinese study Marx, Engels. Lenin and Stalin as well as Mao's writings emphasises yet another important revolutionary principle of Chinese life — proletarian internationalism or the unity of the whole world.
