The Flow of History Is with Us

The statement “Strategically we should despise the enemy but tactically take him seriously” in my opinion means that long-range we should hold to our confidence—the flow of history is with us—but never become careless, knowing that short-range the old reactionary forces still have strength, still have resources, and that we cannot afford to be careless at all. I think that’s what it means.
