Mao

Since our history books have been re-written, I want to remind you of some important points.  I am just taking this directly out of the 4th grade history book:

"Mao Zedong made China a communist country in 1949.  Mao controlled how the Chinese people lived.  He told them they had to work harder.  He said they had to agree with his ideas.  Mao arrested people who were enemies of communism.  He sent them to jail.  This was called the Great Cultural Revolution."

If we refuse to learn about our past, we are doomed to repeat it.
