    Default Mao

    Today is Mao's birthday, and in honor of him, I am going to start a thread about Mao.

    I hear alot of people say that Mao was a bad leader because he killed alot of people. I really think this is BS.


    Lets answer these two questions:

    What is Mao's MBTI type
    Is Mao a great leader or a brutal mass murderer

    do you disagree with the idea that he killed alot of people or do you disagree with the idea that him killing people has any relevance?

    Mao killed between 40 to 70 million people. If he was doing it all by himself, he'd still be at it.

    Obviously, leadership skills helped out a lot.

    Both a revolutionary leader who unified a nation that was quickly disintegrating due to civil unrest and outside forces.

    And one of the world's greatest mass murderers as well, killing millions of his own people.

    Why must they be mutually exclusive? Being one doesn't mean, you cannot be another.

    I find the irony in Cloud worshiping Mao, while at the same time giving me shit for suggested that Chinese are fucking things up, and that the world would be a better place with less of them around.

    I guess if the Chinese are offing other Chinese, then it's all good.
    Kind of like black people calling each other "nigger".

    Used to be, less than ten years ago, you could find Mao posters all over the place in Hunan, in shops and restaurants and such, they were part of the scenery. These days, not so much, almost not at all, in the places I've seen.

    It's odd, in a way, that Mao needs interpretation. Everyone, but everyone, knows the history is massively propagandized. Massively. That is sort of the most immediate crime, that there is no value of separating political fiction from historical record. If the Commies did anything for Chinese spiritual life, it was that, the removal of an independent, dependable foundation for belief. That, and killing people. Which they still do. But with a little less impunity.

    The Party shapes the country, yes, but somehow or other, they are becoming marginalised. Not to the people intimately fucked up by the absence of real bureaucracy, but to the reality of the nation... somehow. But then, Chinese love lying anachronism. Maybe the Party will stay on for a long time yet.


    Just musing, not truth telling. No idea on his type. Supposedly at various points in his life turned on by visions of destruction. Revolution=Destruction, Revision, but Renewal? Did he have a vision of the renewal or just the destruction?
    Bellison uncorked a flood of horrible profanity, which, translated, meant, "This is extremely unusual."

    I think all great dictators did. Adolf Hitler certainly had a vision.

    Certainly - the Führer had a vision of a world free of Jews, and Stalin and Mao broadened the vision to include all capitalists.
