Lin Biao -- On the Preparation for the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution - Page 5
Now it has been proved through investigation that Liu Shao-chi betrayed the Party, capitulated to the enemy and became a hidden traitor and scab as far back as the First Revolutionary Civil War period, that he was a crime-steeped lackey of the imperialists, modern revisionists and Kuomintang reactionaries and that he was the arch-representative of the persons in power taking the capitalist road. He had a political line by which he vainly attempted to restore capitalism in China and turn her into an imperialist and revisionist colony. In addition, he had an organizational line to serve his counterrevolutionary political line. For many years recruiting deserters and turncoats, Liu Shao-chi gathered together a gang of renegades, enemy agents and capitalist-roaders in power.
They covered up their counterrevolutionary political records, shielded
each other, colluded in doing evil, usurped important Party and government
posts and controlled th leadership in many central and local units, thus
forming an underground bourgeois headquarters in opposition to the proletariat
headquarters headed by Chairman Mao. They collaborated with the imperialists,
modern revisionists and Kuomintang reactionaries and played the kind of
disruptive role that the U.S. and the reactionaries of various countries were
unable to do.

by armed force; on the contrary, it urged Communist Party members to depart
from the great practice of revolution and indulge in idealistic
"self-cultivation". which actually meant that Communists would "cultivate"
themselves into willing slaves going down on their knees before the
counter-Revolutionary dictatorship of the imperialists and the Kuomintang
