Three Loyalties

The three loyalties - Loyalty to Chairman Mao, Loyalty to Mao Zedong Thought, and Loyalty to Chairman Mao's proletarian revolutionary line - marked the high point of the state-promoted Mao cult. Originating with the PLA in 1968, the three loyalties were an integral part of the "loyal-ification of the entire day", when people were expected and "encouraged" to engage in various rituals such as the loyalty dance and the "asking for instructions in the morning, and reporting back in the evening" while facing a picture of the Chairman.
