In an interview with visitors from Iraq in May, Chairman Mao Tse-tung said, The age of imperialism cannot last very long. The-imperialists have done all the bad things. All the oppressed people throughout the world surely could not forgive them. Current developments in world affairs are continuously vindicating this wise conclusion by Chairman Mao. Imperialism is monopolistic capitalism and relies on the sweat and blood of the broad mass of the people to fatten itself. The imperialistic system itself embodies deep contradictions which it can never get rid of. These are contradictions between the monopolistic capitalist class and the laboring people in its own country, the contradictions between the capitalist countries and the colonies and semi- colonies, and the contradictions among the various capitalist countries. Only in the death of imperialism and the replacement of imperialism and socialism lies the solution of these contradictions. This is an irresistible objective rule.
