Quote from Deng Xiaoping, the supreme ruler & spiritual leader of China in the recent 30 years to this very day

18 January 2014
 

Had Chairman Mao not initiated the Cultural Revolution and helped us to see clearly the struggles between Capitalism and Socialism through Big Character Posts and mass democracy movement, I would just be led by the nose by Liu Shaoqi.

What does it tell? It tells that after years of enjoying life in peace, my mind was unable to think clearly and could not distinguish the difference between the socialist path and the capitalist road. Many comrades had the same problems as I had but now the situation has been reversed, which is the top achievement of the Great Cultural Revolution. The main accomplishment of the Cultural revolution is to enable the CCP to adhere to its Communist core value and ensure our socialist system will never be converted into Capitalism.

The Cultural Revolution has illustrated why Chairman Mao was a great man.

-- Deng Xiaoping's speech on a meeting of provincial bosses hosted by Chairman Hua Guofeng in July 20, 1977, ten months after the death of Chairman Mao

要不是毛主席发动文化大革命,把资本主义和马列主义、社会主义之间的斗争通过大字报、大鸣、大放、大辩论来使我们认识清楚,我真会让刘少奇拉着鼻子走。这说明什么?是我过了几年太平日子,思想模糊了,路线搞不清楚,很多同志也会有这种错误,现在基本上扭转过来了,这就是文化大革命的首功。所以说文化大革命的成绩,主要是保住了党的本质,也保住了江山不改色。毛主席的伟大之处也就可以在这里体现出来。

—— 1977年7月20日邓小平在华国锋主持的各省党的负责人座谈会上的发言
