The guy I keep referring to here, who does combinatorics, just pinged me on Facebook. The conversation goes as follows:
Him“He’s now president for life. President for life. No, he’s great. And look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot some day.” -Trump on Xi Jinpingchina’s cultural values are reaching the USthe cultural values of a society that has statues of the greatest killer in history
MeLol I had seen thatHahaYou’re referring to Mao?1
Himand in america, we worry about robert lee statuesI refuse to give a fuck until they take down the mao statues in beijingit’s comical
MeIt’s funny how America regards Mao as the greatest killer in historyOnce in China, somebody was like: I don’t even think he ever fired a gun once in his life.He was mostly an intellectual
Himdid hitler fire lots of gunshe was anti intellectualhe destroyed university education in china
MeYou’re referring to during the cultural revolutionwhen the gaokao was cancelledI’m curious about that decisionWho made itMost likely, these leftists in the ministry of education eventually pressured the decisionGang of Four typesOn Baidu there are rumors that the poems he wrote weren’t actually written by himAnd were written for him by Hu Qiaomu insteadSame with many of his writingsReference Archive: Mao ZedongMao Zedong archivemarxists.orgHonestly I would bet that he, like Lenin, was simply prolific, writing wise.What are the odds that Lenin didn’t actually write the books/essays attributed to him.Honestly I think it’s most likely both of them were superhumanly smart, at least at verbal and politics.With encyclopedic knowledge on relevant history and politics.Lol with my blog, I’m becoming similar.
