    Mao's communist China was a fantastic one. before Mao, China was ruled by the capitalist kmt. the kmt are similar to western governments. in fact, it's quite possibly the kmt was installed by the west. as you know, sun yat sen was educated in the usa, and usually installed pupets are educated in the west. during the rule of the kmt, there were no schools in rural areas. many people were uneducated. poor people were treated badly. when Mao seized control, everything changed. he gave power to the poor people. the land was taken from the rich, and given to the poor. while under kmt rule, poor people could not farm because the land was owned by the rich, under Mao, the poor people were able to farm and feed themselves. Mao spent a lot of money on building infrastructure to prevent floods. he built up the nations military and did not allow any foreign attack. he kicked out a lot of the imperialists that previously occupied China. he introduced women's rights, and made China more equal than it had ever been in the past. Mao built schools in rural areas and increased literacy rates. there was basically no crime under Mao. selfish, and greedy people were punished, whereas greedy and selfish people are rewarded under capitalist regimes. there was huge progres in China during Mao. this is why he is seen as a god in China, because he truly turned things around for 90% of the Chinese people. obviously you are going to hear people complain about Mao, but realise that the complaining is coming from the 10%.

    Mao wasn't a bad guy or woman, it become the suffering he persevered that made him one, he have been given human beings killed because of the fact possibly he become relatively unhappy, are only being very communist... yet I nevertheless have faith he had no actual to try this, besides the indisputable fact that it relatively is only undemanding for leaders to kill their own followers, like Hitler and Stalin. there's a undemanding chinese language asserting in China that Mao helped the chinese language with the conflict yet he become little need at agriculture/ helping the folk; Mao helped China earnings its 'first' distant places victories so he's in many situations remembered in history. 'the large bounce forward' become a bad theory, thousands and thousands died... China more advantageous yet at a fee, he banned many universities so as that folk does no longer 'out-smarten' him. Many clever scholars could no longer get a level and had to return to artwork interior the fields. It become a mechanism for catastrophe... certainly. unfortunately, Mao become chosen with the aid of the chinese language, and probably the international, as between the main memorable personalities of the twentieth century.

    Mao was a brutal man, responsible for the deaths of many innocent civilians.

    Just like President Nixon was a brutal man responsible for the murders of hundreds of thousands of totally innocent Cambodian civilians during the illegal carpet bombings of Cambodia many decades ago.

    They were BOTH murderous criminals.

    His ideas were disastrous when put into effect (Great Leap Forward was an absolute disaster that resulted in famine and death) and he was, like most dictators and monarchs, paranoid and would happily have anyone who looked at him the wrong way executed or imprisoned.

    I feel pity for Mao because I think he honestly believed he was right... but sometimes you don't see the consequences of your actions until they are put into action.

    He sacrificed his own child in the war. He let his son fight in the war and his son died.

    Yep, he was a tyrant, and horrible crimes were committed in the name of the Party, but his moves did push China ahead in some important ways.

  • Kinda failed with the whole Communism thing considering the income gap down there.

    Just saying.
