A writer who exposed the deaths of millions of Chinese people during the Great Leap Forward says the Chinese Communist Party has released more and more documents detailing the bloodshed and famine.
Tens of millions of people died during the Great Leap Forward, former Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedongs pet project from 1958 to 1962when he thought he could divert rural Chinese farm workers into mass collectives.
While most might assume that Adolf Hitlers Holocaust, or Joseph Stalins purges, or the Terror Famine of Ukraine, or perhaps even the slaughter of Native Americans in the New World, were the worst mass killings in history, Mao seemingly outdid them all in an even shorter span of time...
Sad to say, but I don’t believe Chinese value life. The great conversion to Christianity will change this view over time.
They misspelled ‘FROWARD’...................
Mao seemed to eat well.
But he did get a lot of exercise with that harem of young girls he had.
Yep. Mao was the worst. But let’s not leave Pol Pot off the list.
Having been to China several times, and having done business there, I feel confident in backing up your belief... at least in that the majority there do not value human life (of "others", basically anyone outside of their family or local group) nearly to the extent that most Westerners seem to.
I don’t think any Orientals value life.

I agree but I think that communism is part of the blame for that.
It isn't the Chinese, per se, any more than it was the Russians, or the Germans. Most ideologies prior to the 20th Century placed little value on human life, or at least, on human life adhering to "other" ideologies. Marxism, in all its derivative forms including Socialism, Nazism, Maoism, Stalinism and many other customizations, is responsible for more deaths than anything other than Islam, and Islam had a 12 century head start!
As a side note, regarding the massive death toll visited upon the Native Americans by the colonial powers, it was mostly accidental. There was no plan to infect the native peoples and cause a 95% depopulation of the American continents. I won't deny there were subsequent atrocities (committed by both sides) but that initial hit the native tribes took was not deliberate.
All I know is that Stalin had a census done, realized how many people he and Lenin had managed to kill, then executed the census takes to keep it secret...
The Chinese I've met and worked with are not at all malicious...and not at all Communist. But they aren't into faux, insincere expressions of sympathy the way Americans are, either.
However, people fall short of the best of their cultural ethos.
And the left covers it up.
My lady friend, Yi, was sent as a young teenager, to rice paddies in the Southern mountains. The two previous girls who had occupied her hut, had hung themselves from the rafters! He father, a Chinese intellectual, listed in Who’s Who, spoke 12 languages! He was sent to work in a radio factory.

Abortion in the US still beats it. Reported legal surgical abortions since legalization in 1973 is 59 million plus, according to http://www.numberofabortions.com which does not include the number of abortions overseas that we have exported, financially speaking (Trump quickly cut off taxpayer funding for that), it doesn’t include the number of pharmaceutical oy induced abortions, a number which used to be published by the CDC, but came off that site during the obama administration, and which is a much larger number than 59 million
There are no kids. Not at church, not at the pond, skating, not at the beach none downtown in a Saturday afternoon
