An interesting distinction made by Quispe on Olaechea:
------------------------------------------------------

  One thing is deluded masses in a
> remote village or a shanty town - and even there, they get their
> commeuppance if they defy the Party.

REVISIONIST GARBAGE!! THE MASSES ARE THE PARTY, THERE IS TACTICAL
DESCENTRALIZATION AND STRATEGIC CENTRALIZATION. THE BASES HAVE
FLEXIBILITY OF ACTION AS LONG AS THEY ARE TIED TO THE STARATEGIC PLANS.
NOTHING IS UNILATERAL, NOTHING IS TOP-DOWN. STALIN TACTICS ARE NOT VALID,
MAO'S TACTIC ARE APPLICABLE. NOTHING IS RESOLVED ADMNISTRATIVELY, THAT IS
AGAINST THE MASS LINE OF THE PCP.


- If this distinction could be articulated in political terms
(as much as possible avoided personal abuse) it might illuminate
one of the contradictions on this l'st and perhaps also in the
history of the international communist movement.
