  • Description

    PLEASE CHECK BELOW IN CASE MORE DEFINITE INFO GIVEN THE FIST SECTION OF THIS FILM INDICATES THE VAST WORK NOW BEING DONE BY THE POPULATION OF RED CHINA. WORK IN THE FIELDS, WORK ON ROADS, WORK ON NEW STEEL MILLS: NOTHING BUT WORK. A FACTORY WORKER MAY BE AT HIS LATHE FOR 10 HOURS A DAY, SIX DAYS A WEEK AND THEN VOLUNTEER FOR ADDITIONAL WORK ON A FARM. AND LARGELY THIS WORK IS DONE BY BRUTE FORCE. THE RED CHINESE HAVE FEW MODERN MACHINES TO HELP IN THE WORK. WHERE ANIMALS OR TRACTORS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR PLOWING, THEN THE PLOWS ARE DRAWN BY MAN POWER. WHERE WINCHES ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR CARRYING HUGE BUILDING BLOCKS, THEN THEY ARE CARRIED ON THE BACKS OF THE MEN.

    IN THE STEEL MILL SEGMENT OF THE FILM, SEVERAL EXAMPLES OF THE SMALL BLAST FURNACES, WHICH DOT THE COUNTRYSIDE, ARE SHOWN. THESE FURNACES, WHICH TURN OUT ANYTHING FROM SEVERAL POUNDS TO SEVERAL TONS OF PIG IRON EACH DAY, ARE BUILT VOLUNTARILY ... AND OPERATED VOLUNTARILY TO HELP RED CHINA BOOST ITS STEEL PRODUCTION. ANOTHER SCENE THEN SHOWS A MASSIVE NEW STEEL MILL IN OPERATION .. A MILL BUILT BY SHEER MANPOWER.

    THE LAST SEGMENT OF THE FILM SHOWS MANY CHILDREN, A MONTAGE TO INDICATE A GROWING POPULATION OF RED CHINA. FOURTEEN THOUSAND CHILDREN ARE BORN EACH DAY ... AND BY 1980 THE POPULATION OF THE MAINLAND OF CHINA WILL BE ONE-BILLION. THE RED REGIME IN CHINA DID TRY A BIRTH CONTROL PROGRAM LAST YEAR, BUT IT FAILED ... AND NOW THE REGIME IS SAYING THAT THE FAST GROWING POPULATION IS IMPORTANT TO RED CHINA TO REPEL THE INVASION OF THE AMERICANS, WHICH THE PROPAGANDA CHIEFS INSIST WILL COME SOONER OR LATER. IT IS THIS THEME THAT IS THE IMPETUS FOR THE MASSIVE WORK PROJECTS -- THE THEME OF HATE AMERICA; PREPARE TO REPEL THE INVADER.
