Trouble Begins at Home 
MAO Zedong was not in Beijing,but he ordered the convening ofan enlarged session of the Politburo,to be chaired by his successor,Vice-Chairman of the Central Committee and President of the People'sRepublic,Liu Shaoqi. 
Liu didn't realize that everything Mao did at that time.and the many,many things which displeased and angered him,were not simply broughton by the immediate matters of Peng Zhen,Luo Ruiqing,Lu Dingyi andYang Shangkun. 
After the failure of the"Great Leap Forward"in 1958,andparticularly after the rectitication of the rash policies in the 60's,Maostarted being dissatisfied with Liu Shaoqi and Deng Xiaoping.Theyshared the responsibility for general work in the Central Committee.butin many respects their ideas were not in harmony with his own.Naturally,he was most angry with the higher-ranking Liu Shaoqi. 
In keeping with his goal of"continuing the revolution under thedictatorship of the proletariat"so as to prevent"revisionism"and a"return of capitalism".Mao had already made up his mind.He decidedto replace Liu Shaoqi by Lin Biao as his designated successor as leaderof the Communist Party.Lin always made a point of posing as beingassiduously"faithful"to Mao and all of his theories.
Liu Shaoqi was not aware of Map's intention,nor was DengXiaoping,nor were the high-ranking Party leaders.Nor were they prepared for the thunderclap events which rapidlyfollowed.and Mao's completely irrational thoughts and deeds.Andwhen they finally did realize what was happening,they couldn'tunderstand it.It was this"slow-wittedness"on their part which madethem"unable to keep up"with developments,and commit"errors"which,of course,resulted in their being drowned in the mad floodwaters of the"revolution".
