The idea that the Poor and Lower-Middle peasants were the fount of revolutionary knowledge and theory, the true and only teachers of urban educated youth, was amply illustrated by endless amounts of posters of them welcoming the arrival of new political publications. They did not hesitate to spend their hard-earned income on these booklets.
