A speech delivered by Jerry Path at Walker Church, Dec. 3, 1975
Most of us have brought to this meeting political differences which stem from differences in approach to revolutionary strategy and tactics.
There will always be differences among us. This fact is based on the universality of contradiction which is a basic law of dialectical materialism. Mao Tse-Tung states this law as follows: "The universality or absoluteness of contradiction has a two-fold meaning. One is that contradiction exists in the
development of all things' and the other is that in the process of development of each thing a movement of opposites exists from beginning to end."
We are here together tonight because, between the opposing forces in a contradiction there is both unity and struggle.
