I am here, Mao Zedong.
I know you wonder that I write to you, but it is I, the founder
of the Communist Chinese government. I have had a hard time over
here, as nothing of this was known to me. And every Marxist will
have a similar fate.
You are wondering why I came to you. Well, I saw your concern
about the growth in power of my country's empire, and I wish to
tell you that that system will fall because it is immoral and unjust.
In fact, every unjust regime will fall, and in your lifetime.
No matter how passionate and zealous a person may be, if that
passion is not based on truth and justice, it will fail. This is
not hard to understand.
Mao Zedong, also transliterated as Mao Tse-tung and
commonly referred to as Chairman Mao (December 26, 1893 September
9, 1976), was a Chinese Communist revolutionary, guerrilla warfare
strategist, Marxist political philosopher, and leader of the Chinese
Revolution. He was the architect and founding father of the People's
Republic of China (PRC) from its establishment in 1949, and held
control over the nation until his death in 1976. His theoretical
contribution to MarxismLeninism, along with his military strategies
and brand of policies, are collectively known as Maoism.
Mao rose to power by commanding the Long March, forming a United
Front with Kuomintang (KMT) during the Second Sino-Japanese War
to repel a Japanese invasion, and by later leading the Chinese Communist
Party to victory against Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek's KMT in
the Chinese Civil War. Mao reestablished central control over China's
fractured territories, with the exception of Taiwan, and successfully
suppressed opponents of the new order. He enacted sweeping land
reform by using violence and terror to overthrow landlords before
seizing their large estates and dividing the land into people's
communes. The Communist Party's final victory came after decades
of turmoil in China, which included a brutal invasion by Japan and
a protracted civil war. Mao's Communist Party ultimately achieved
a measure of stability in China, though Mao's reign was marred by
the turmoil of events like his Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution,
and his efforts to close China to trade and market commerce, and
eradicate traditional Chinese culture, have been largely rejected
by his successors. Source: Wikipedia
