One thought on “The Word From the Trenches – September 2, 2022

  1. A peek into the mind of Mao:

    “When there is not enough to eat, people starve to death. It is better to let half of the people die so that the other half can eat their fill.”

    “Everything under heaven is in utter chaos; the situation is excellent.”

    “The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.”

    “Deaths have benefits. They can fertilize the ground.”

    “To read too many books is harmful.”

    “People say that poverty is bad, but in fact poverty is good. The poorer people are, the more revolutionary they are. It is dreadful to imagine a time when everyone will be rich.”

    “Don’t make a fuss about a world war. At most, people die… Half the population wiped out – this happened quite a few times in Chinese history… It’s best if half the population is left, next best one-third.”

    “Our principle is that the Party commands the gun, and the gun must never be allowed to command the Party.”

    “The socialist system will eventually replace the capitalist system; this is an objective law independent of man’s will.”

    “Our goal is to make the enemy passive.”

    Jaw-dropping. And it won’t make me “passive.” And yeah, capitalism is no better, but this man had a wicked soul, but he didn’t know he did. What is it to be human and live without conscience? Perhaps it’s something non-human.
