“Scientific Experiment”

From the soon-to-be-released YA sci-fi novel, The Red Knot . . .

“Chairman Mao?” Hu guessed.

Shi de.  This was my father’s.  He was a Red Army soldier.  Read the quote on the back.”

Hu took the faded paper and flipped the photo over.  He read aloud,

Where do correct ideas come from? Do they drop from the skies? No. Are they innate in the mind? No. They come from social practice and from it alone. They come from three kinds of social practice: the struggle for production, the class struggle and scientific experiment.” 

As Hu handed back the photo of Mao, Chen laughed at his confounded expression.  “Keep it.”

Hu nodded his thanks and slipped the picture of Mao in the breast pocket of his uniform.

Read the first two books of the Days of the Guardian trilogy, The Red String and The Red Cloak!
