Mao Zedong Socialism


Mao from his mausoleum : 
Oh stop nit picking me will ya,
remember that I’m also a poet-philosopher

Mao Zedong, founder of the People’s Republic of China, qualifies as the greatest mass murderer in world history, an expert who had unprecedented access to official Communist Party archives said yesterday.
Speaking at The Independent Woodstock Literary Festival, Frank Dikötter, a Hong Kong-based historian, said he found that during the time that Mao was enforcing the Great Leap Forward in 1958, in an effort to catch up with the economy of the Western world, he was responsible for overseeing “one of the worst catastrophes the world has ever known”.
Mr Dikötter, who has been studying Chinese rural history from 1958 to 1962, when the nation was facing a famine, compared the systematic torture, brutality, starvation and killing of Chinese peasants to the Second World War in its magnitude. At least 45 million people were worked, starved or beaten to death in China over these four years; the worldwide death toll of the Second World War was 55 million.

His place among the pantheon of 
blood thirsty socialist tyrants is secure

  1. And we havnt calculated the deaths caused by Mao and his henchmen before the Great Leap forward, and the after-effects of the Great Leap forward.

    Others have estimated that Mao and communism in China, were responsible for some 60m deaths. This is just deaths alone, and does not include those who were merely starved, broken in body and mind, or the relatives of the all the above, who must all carry the scar of the Great Torment.

    In effect, all Chinese were tormented by this godless creed of Marxism. And yet, have any Marxists sitting comfortably in their tenured chairs in universities in capitalist countries, ever apologised for Marxism. Nope. They continue to foist this evil dogma in the guise of Political Correctness, in the hope that they will bring about the downfall of Western civilisation.

  2. PS

    In the pantheon of 20th century genocidal thugs, Mohammed is in his correct place. In the pantheon of all time genocidal creeds, it is estimated that Islam was directly responsible for some 300m deaths.

    One must normalise these figures, as the population of the planet was much smaller in the past. Therefore Islam would take first place.
