Feb 1, 1942: The Rectification Movement begins
On Feb 1, 1942, Mao Zedong delivered the report "Rectify the Style of Study, Party and Writing" at the opening ceremony of the Central Party School. On Feb 8, Mao made a speech "opposing stereotypical party writing" at the meeting for cadres in Yan'an. On April 3, the Central Propaganda Department issued "the decision on discussing the central decisions and the report of rectifying three styles made by Mao Zedong". In late May, the Central Political Bureau established the Central Committee of General Learning to oversee the rectification campaign. The General Learning Committee members were Mao, Kaifeng, Kang Sheng, Li Fuchun and Chen Yun. Mao was named director, and Kang Sheng was named deputy director. On June 8, the Central Propaganda Department issued an "instruction on efforts to rectifying three styles through the whole party." The Party launched a rectification movement to work against subjectivism to rectify the style of study, to work against sectarianism in order to rectify the style of the Party, and against Party stereotypes in writing in order to rectify the style of writing.

Feb 1, 1947: The Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee holds an enlarged meeting
Mao Zedong said at the meeting that China was on the threshold of a new climax of the People's revolution. The meeting discussed and issued an instruction entitled "meet the new surge of the Chinese revolution", pointing out that the victory of the People's Liberation Army and the development of the people's movement in areas controlled by Chiang Kai-shek signaled the coming of a new surge of the Chinese revolution. An extremely broad united front of the whole nation -- including workers, peasants, urban petty bourgeoisie, national bourgeoisie, enlightened gentry, other patriots, ethnic minorities and overseas Chinese -- has formed. This united front not only was the same general size as the united front during the anti-Japanese period, but also had a more profound basis. All Party members must fight for its consolidation and development, Mao said.
