“From the masses to the masses simply means to absorb the ideas from the masses and then bring them back to the masses in the form of a revolutionary theory.”

“Revolutionaries are also supposed to raise the political level of the masses in the process of struggle. And this can only be done if revolutionaries openly put forward a revolutionary political program. The mass line is intended to raise the level of the masses and connect them with revolutionary struggle, not serve as an excuse for revolutionaries to hide their politics.” — Will Griffin
