In my view any historian that comes out with comparing Mao as the same as Hitler,

is of their rocker. The two are so different from night to day,

but of course it suits their purposes. The majority of people who reads about that time in

history only sees the surface of what the West tries to portray.

But if they only spend time to look deeper, then they will find the perception

of Mao to be quite the opposite.

The problem that I find in the Chinese culture is that , they do not like to stand out and brag or

moan about their short comings or achievements . We are by nature, quiet ,humble, and peaceful

society. You can still see examples in the west, after so many years of immigration, the percentage

of Chinese that has committed crimes are very few, compared to victims of crime.   

Thanks for the thread , it has taught me more about that part of history, only another 4,900

more years to go . hahaha

Well ..........  !

Having read many reviews on this book even avid supporters of the anti-Mao brigade whilst praising the book still indicate that from an academic point of view it is trash  .......

Basically it is written for Western 'believers' ..........

Those that cannot think for themselves  ............

Who said anything about McCarthy, those days are now! Or maybe everyone is too distracted by SpyBook or BigBrother 20 (whichever season of that pointless show they are up to) to bother learning anything.

Well we have had the 'Big Brother' mentality since 1947  .........

But not from where Orwell predicted it  ...........

And this has grown to the 'Patriot Act' .........  

Create the bogey man and rule  .........
