"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
Maos "philosiphy" is pretty well crap. Lots of pinched pesant sayings and wanky metaphors.When I was in high school we had a teacher who actually read some of Maos stuff in class. It was so bad it made most of us laugh. Which had been the teachers intention, he was a Canadian bloke. I often wonder that if they did the same thing to Che, Hitler and the rest of the murdering thugs, that is held their "dangerous" writings up for ridicule, if it would work better than letting them retain their aura of evil.
Frollicking: He sure wasn't one for bon mots. This seems typical: "People of the world, unite and defeat the U.S. aggressors and all their running dogs! People of the world, be courageous, dare to fight, defy difficulties and advance wave upon wave. Then the whole world will belong to the people. Monsters of all kinds shall be destroyed."I'm not sure that even the threat of being shot for being the first one to stop applauding would save me if I had to listen to much of that stuff.
The really funny part?Even Mao didn't know what the hell Maoism was from day to day. Plenty of functionaries ended up collecting a bullet because of guessing wrong, which kept the others nice and nervous.SB: suntsenow that's just spooky
