@youngsocialistpeach if the cultural revolution hadntve happened, capitalism wouldve been restored in the early 60s. After the GLF Liu Shaoqi, Deng Xiaoping, and others were working to reverse collectivization. in that sense it was a massive success. However it had many shortcomings and MLMs recognize that.
also, MLMs recognize that revisionism stems principally from the party. this is explicitly recognized in Mao’s writings in fact. Thats the whole point of two-line struggle. When we say mass line and cultural revolution are the ways to prevent revisionism we dont mean a complete repeat of what went down in China.
