En Marcha: The struggle of Albania against maoism (part 1)

En Marcha, #1560, 9-15/12/2011, p. 8

The Party of Labour of Albania (PLA) after facing and fighting
Khrushchev had to to unmask and fight a new facet of revisionism,
but this time came from the Asian continent and under the hand and the leadership of Mao Tse-Tung.
From 1956, the year in which it is presented the report of the XX Congress CPSU, the PLA had closer relations with the Chinese. This relationship increasingly girded for fight Albanians deployed against Khrushchevit revisionism, but the action driven by Mao and his followers degenerated into a pragmatic policy seeking to make China an imperialist superpower.
The activity displayed by the China was hesitant and contradictory in it the principles were absent Marxist-Leninist and characterized by opportunism, according to Enver Hoxha "... many attitudes, whether general ones or the personal attitudes of Chinese leaders, towards a series of major political, ideological, military, and organizational problems vacillated, at times to the right, at times to the left. Sometimes they were resolute and at times irresolute, there were times, too, when they maintained correct stands, but more often it was their opportunist stands that caught the eye. During the entire period that Mao was alive, the Chinese policy, in general, was a vacillating one, a policy changing with the circumstances, lacking a Marxist-Leninist spinal cord. What they would say about an important political problem today they would contradict tomorrow. In the Chinese policy, one consistent enduring red thread could not be found."(1), to the extent that the Mao Tse-Tung himself stated that his thought can be used by all, both the left and on the right.
