A fine example of how utterly insensitive a post in a history forum can possibly be.Am I supposed to lose sleep over this?
Even if I am bothered by it, and I am not because there are so much more in life to be busy and bother about, why should I want a similar situation in the USSR for China over Mao's sexual perversion and people who died under his famine?
The Chinese have it right when they act practically and pragmatically in causing a Chinese Resurgence than to nitpick over a dead man's past evils.
Between crying moaning over his crimes and taking advantage of the rare state stability his brutal early regime caused, Chinese are right to celebrate his successes and move on and continuing to rebuild China from the stability and unity a mountain of corpses had paved.
The Chinese who know are not hiding anything; crimes or good deeds. They are choosing to be practical and mature by moving forward than having to cry over alleged pedophile rape by what is now a corpse.
