    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Everyone knows about stalin and hitler, and no one cares about Mao?
    I am seriously saddened by people's ignorance in hoistory?
    Not knowing mao here in asia is like not knowing lenin in russia.

    Mao is such an enormously propagandized figure. The sheer lack of check-able data on his true character and the true extent of the happenings during his lifetime, and the fantastically polarised opinions about him from people who are supposed to know, make it really hard for the casual observer to form an opinion.

    I'm currently reading Mao: The Unknown Story by Jung Chang and Jon Halliday, and they hate him into little tiny pieces, but are halfway scholarly about it.

    One of the early observations about him suggest he had a lifelong love of reading, was good at delegating his work to other people, and he was an intellectual hack who unfortunately discovered in himself a fascination for violence. He was thrilled by it as a thing in itself, and felt it had useful transformative properties for nations as a whole.

    Popular mythology says he was a very good guerrilla leader, but a massively destructive emperor with little or no true vision.

    That is a very inaccurate book by Jung Chang. You should read the private life of chairtman mao or chinese history in general. They offer more objective viewpoints.


    More information about Mao:

    His favorite book is Outlaws of the Marsh

    He is born rebel and leader.

    He is a social outcast, hates following social norms, hates rules ands regulations, and constantly defies authority Dreams being an outlaw that can change society. Known to challenge the status quo throughout his life.

    He loves discussion of ideas and philosophical debates

    following quote attributed to him:
    "to rebel is justified"

    He hates his father, a classical ESTJ, so there is no way he could be an estj.

    Very different from stalin, the two secretly hated each other despite sino-soviet coporation.

    Yea but he has charisma, It doesn't matter if you are a lunatic, if you have charisma, you can make people do stupid things.

    I think Stalin is an ISTX, but people disagree with me.

    One has only to read the first few pages to realise it's going to be a massively biased ride.

    Li Zhisui's book? Objective? Haven't read it, but have heard some highlights.

    And he loved the Nationalist Party, go figger. (Presumably means he sought power.)

    Quick question, since I'm not very far into any of the books, the massively destructive things that went on in China and seem to have left large parts of it and the people as scorched wasteland, he was at the forefront, or just another leader caught up in a historical process?
