China's Cultural Revolution, 1966-1969: Not a Dinner Party

By Michael Schoenhals | Go to book overview

Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, etc., have a very strong feudal flavor, a widespread baneful influence, and a bad impact. In our new socialist China, we must absolutely not allow this remnant poison of the feudal landlord class and its emperors, monarchs, generals, and ministers to spread wantonly and unchecked. We propose observing only holidays that have a political content, such as the "May 1st" International Labor Day, the "March 8th" International Women's Day, the "June 4th" Day of Youth, the "June 1st" International Children's Day, the anniversary of the founding of our Party on "July 1st," the "August 1st" Army Day, and the ",October 1st" National Day. All those filthy feudal "holidays" are to be abolished. We will continue to observe the "Qing Ming" Festival by sweeping the graves of revolutionary martyrs--not by visiting the graves of our ancestors.

Long live the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution!
Long live the great Chinese Communist Party!
Long live our great leader Chairman Mao! Long live! Long live!
Long live the great Mao Zedong Thought!
Long live the revolutionary spirit of rebellion!
Smash the old world, build a new world!
