AsiaNews; The 20th century saw three great political myths. The myths of Hitler and Stalin have been annihilated, but the myth of Mao Zedong still haunts China today. It won’t be hard to give a comprehensive evaluation of Mao Zedong, so we can get a clear picture of what he actually achieved. The history textbooks tell us that the Chinese people achieved a democratic revolution under the leadership of Mao Zedong. That’s not true. The so-called “New Democracy” was a hoax invented by Mao Zedong in order to compete with [former president Chiang Kai-shek] for political power. It went like this: land to the peasants; freedom to the intellectuals; industrial development under the leadership to the workers; and Lincoln’s government for, by, and of the people, along with Roosevelt’s four fundamental freedoms, for the entire Chinese people. Even as late as September 1949, Mao Zedong was still working hard with the democratic parties and factions to finalize the “common program.” But as soon as he took power, Mao refused to cash any checks at all.
