STRATEGY AND TACTICS
The guiding principles of revolutionary organizational practice
"Dialectical materialism has two outstanding characteristics. One is its class nature: it openly avows that dialectical materialism is in the service of the proletariat ... Marxist philosophy holds that the most important problem does not lie in understanding the laws of the objective world and thus being able to explain it, but in applying the knowledge of these laws actively to change the world." (On Practice)
The development of the assessment process has been a process of systematically building cadre's material understanding of ·the laws of dialectical materialism in general, and the dialectical method.
