MEMO FROM MAO


“A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery. It cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another. Every Communist must grasp the truth: Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”

The secret word is Rise
