Watching “The Revolutionary Holocaust” Part IX

Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

I just finished reading Mao: The Unknown Story, by the husband and wife team of writer Jung Chang and historian Jon Halliday. It’s a fantastic biography of one of the most evil men who ever lived.

What I got from it (mostly), is that Mao cared only about himself and his own power. People were tools to him. His goal was to assemble as much power as he could. If tens of millions had to die so he could have more power, so be it. In fact, he even enjoyed watching people die.

This is exactly why it’s so scary that someone like Anita Dunn says Mao is one of her favorite “political philosophers.”
