The general trend of the world today is still as Chairman Mao described it:
"The enemy rots with every passing day, while for us things are getting better
daily." On the one hand, the revolutionary movement of the proletariat of the
world and the people of various countries is vigorously surging forward. The
armed struggles of the people of southern Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Burma,
Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Palestine and other countries and regions of Asia,
Africa and Latin America are steadily growing in strength. The truth that
"political power grows out of the barrel of a gun" is being grasped by ever
broader masses of the oppressed people and nations. An unprecedentedly gigantic
revolutionary mass movement has broken out in Japan, Western Europe and North
America, the "heartlands" of capitalism. More and more people are awakening.
The genuine fraternal Marxist-Leninist Parties and organizations are growing
steadily in the course of integrating Marxism-Leninism with the concrete
practice of revolution in their own countries. On the other hand, U.S.
Imperialism and Soviet revisionist social-imperialism are bogged down in
political and economic crisis and beset with difficulties both at home and
abroad and find themselves in an impasse.
