How to be radical without being too radical?

-It is easy to be radical - everyone is capable of that - but it is difficult to be radical without being too radical. Only few people are capable of this.

-Experience shows that the Party, in order to survive, has to be an integral part of the everyday life of the people.

-In order to be a part of the everyday life of the people the Party must respect the people.

-The difference between the Party and various extremist fractions lies in that the Party respects the people but the extremists despise them.

-The extremists try to take over the daily life of the people but at the same time have no respect for the conventional worldview and needs of ordinary people.

-The extremists do not listen to ordinary people and place theory before practice and experience.

-The strength of the Party lies in its dialectical relationship with the masses. The Party line is this: No theory without practice, no practice without theory.

-We must be able to see what can be changed in people's daily life and conventional worldview and what can not be changed. Once this has become clear to us, people's lives can be improved.

-The downfall of the extremist fractions lies in their desire to radically alter the most sacred of all: The daily lives of ordinary people.

-The one who will understand and respect people's needs and their daily life will win.

-We could even say that the Party struggles, so that in the end nothing would change. In other words the Party struggles to protect the daily lives of ordinary people.

-Thus the Party is radical without being too radical.
