The political struggle and maneuvering going into the National Peo- 24 Introduction ple's Congress, as with the lOth Party Congress, was quite intense. It was decided at the 2nd Plenum of the l0th Central Committee held shortly before the People's Congress that Teng Hsiao-ping would be made Chief of Staff of the Army and Chang Chun-chiao made head of its Political Department. Mao neither attended this meeting nor the People's Congress and, as his subsequent instructions would indicate, he was unhappy with the direction in which things were going.
For a remarkably similar view to Teng's caterwaulings about how the political movements were ruining production the reader is advised to look at the Soviet commentary (see Appendix 5) which puts forward the same analysis as Teng, that is, socialism in China is a failure because the masses are running amuck and must be put back in their place. " This became known as "taking the three directives as the key link" and it was designed to scotch the class struggle, as Mao would later point out. The "General Program" resurrected the summation of Lin Piao as "ultra-left" and challenged the formulation contained in the report given at the Fourth National People's Congress that "only when we do well in revolution is it possible to do well in production," and ridiculed the anti-Confucius campaign.
The Left insisted on linking it with production. Many units reported increases in output when workers criticized Confucius' idea that only the talented can rule and related ihis to establishing more comradely relations between workers and managers which further broke down the division of labor between them. The struggle on the cultural front heated up considerably in late 1973 and early 1974. The appearance in China of symphonic orchestras from abroad stirred great controversy. The Left did not oppose these visits as such; the question was on what terms and on what basis would they be hailed or would such cultural exchanges be recognized as an aspect of necessary diplomatic initiatives to the West which, however, increased bourgeois influences.
