At that time, the struggle between the Marxist-Leninist line and the line of modern revisionism hadalready broken out, mainly between the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) and CommunistParty of China (CPC. We the Filipino proletarian revolutionaries stood up for the Marxist-Leninist line,even as some of the key cadres in the old merger party insisted that the CPSU and the CPC were not incontradiction over fundamental revolutionary principles but were debating merely about methods of struggle.Such cadres would later become well-defined as the Lava revisionist renegades in 1967. Having failed torebuild the old merger party since it was crushed in the years of 1950 to 1952 and practically liquidatedsince 1957, they had no choice for a while but to have amicable relations with the proletarianrevolutionaries who were leading the newly-formed branches of the old merger party, the major massorganizations and the resurgent anti-imperialist, anti-feudal and civil libertarian mass movement.We the proletarian revolutionaries were determined to develop the mass movement in order to carryout the new democratic revolution through protracted people's war under the leadership of the workingclass party. We were strongly opposed to the Khruschovite revisionist line of bourgeois populism ("partyof the whole people" and "state of the whole people") and bourgeois pacifism ("peaceful transition","peaceful competition" and "peaceful co-existence").We held the position that Khrushchov had vilified and totally negated Stalin under the pretext of rejecting the "cult of personality" in order to attack Marxism-Leninism and socialism. We became awareof Comrade Mao's criticism in April 1956 of Khrushchov's anti-Stalin speech in February 1956 and thedebate on the issues in the 1957 and 1960 Moscow meetings of communist and workers' parties. Weeagerly studied the wide range of issues that emerged in the open debate between the CommunistParty of China (CPC) and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in the early 1960s.We became aware of the decentralizing and confused reorganizations done in the Soviet party, state,economy and culture in order to subvert Marxism-Leninism and socialism. We saw as wrongKhrushchov's admiration for Titoite revisionism, which included rejection of land reform and centralplanning. We saw through the economism and opportunism in Khrushchov's promise of achievingcommunism in twenty years by changing the material and cultural foundation of Soviet society throughbourgeois economic reforms.
