    Ehh... only sometimes. The problem is gone for now.

    P.S. I can see why. "Chairman" Mao not only did not fight Japanese, but he thanked Japan for invading China (so he could overthrow Chiang Kai-shek), collaborated with the Japanese against ROC and even refused any war reparations from Japan!

    BTW actually, Japanese have temples and shrines dedicated to Chiang. He's the one who kept the Emperor after WW2, opposed the partition of Japan, forgiven countless Japanese soldiers, and he opposed harsh punishments against the Japanese commoners

    During WW2, Mao sold opium and cared only to expand his force while ROC armies fought for their country. Also, in hard times of ROC, Mao set up his own country "Chinese Soviet Republic" while the rest of China suffered

    They are only working on keeping their "own" kind of peace.
    Of course, it is what all leaders think, that their actions are for the better, for their people, and that is what other leaders will also think. And so war occurs, for either survival, power, vengeance or "peace". Those that are suffering are considered unlucky, that they didn't get to enjoy what they're about to achieve. But the war was an opportunity for change, and it brought "a bit" of order in this present time.
    No offense but, none of them are actually good on some perspective, all of them created suffering to their own and to others.

    Well, for the most leaders in the human world, yes. But to me there will always be certain exceptions -- we have heroes like Frederick the Great, Chiang Kai-shek and Chiang Ching-kuo;

    and at the same time wicked villains too like Mao Tse-tung and Karl Marx...

    For the heroes and most normal humans, yes, they think their actions are for the better, for their nation and for their people. But those wicked villains mentioned above clearly knew what they were doing...

    Yes, I do know that Chiang Kai-shek caused flood and took some innocent lives, but that was to prevent the invaders to come sooner and murder more lives. I knew what happened in Taiwan but that was to prevent a greater evil......

    But Mao is beyond despicable. Everything for himself. Lies, deceptions and betrayals.

    No, actually many Chinese people hates Mao and...

    1) Chiang and ROC was busy fighting in WW2, while Mao did nothing but expand his gang of bandits.

    2) The Chinese people doesn't choose Mao, instead it's Mao fooling them and forcing them to be their slaves. The younger generations after 1949 were heavily brainwashed.

    I remember one incident -- Mao murdered one KMT official, and then blackmailed the naive and ignorant people, saying that "you killed a KMT officer, they are now going to kill you peasants!"

    And then forced the people to do human wave attacks. Because these are not foreigners or whatever, they are compatriots from the very same country, so the ROC army couldn't kill their fellow Chinese and only had to retreat.

    (see the difference between ROC and Commie?)

    3) And in addition, Mao got a bunch of Japanese weapons after WW2 from the Soviet Union. The Soviets supported Mao while the US did not care much about Chiang.

    It's not a simple, you know, popularity and stuffs.

    The truth is harsh and cruel. Look at what happened in Great Leap "Forward" and Cultural Revolution.

    Millions of Chinese starving under Mao, yet Mao himself not only enjoys the best food but also give food to others generously in order to receive international recognition!

    And you know, look at what happened to the CCP high officials. Many of them are corrupt millionaires, and the very SAME party officials are the ones who took away the people's lands and rights. Look at how CCP forcefully demolish commoner's houses.

    P.S. when Liu Shaoqi criticized Mao about this, and told him that the Great Leap "Forward" was a disaster. Mao was really angry and vengeful about this, and that's why he did Cultural Revolution. Not only to make Liu Shaoqi suffer but also destroy traditional Chinese culture.

    You know, the commies love violence and evil, but the traditional Chinese culture is a big obstacle for the commies. That's why they destroy countless artifacts and burn all those invaluable treasures.

    Its not that Communism itself is the root. But by a human individual's mind, some wants power, some wants pleasure, some wants wealth, and some just wants to see the world burn.
    And because of this uniqueness in every human, is that they love the violence and would spread their control. Using Communism as their disguise. But not all of them, some just think foolishly. Genes of evil and influence just spreads into the people of a country, and I won't be suprised that it goes the same for every individual in this world.

    If Communism was like that, then I see it even within Capitalism. But what can be done, people wanted order but also wanted freedom without being controlled.

    No corruption? Mao was the greatest corrupt official ever. All of the rest suffered but he's the one who enjoyed everything and wasted all those money.

    Deng Xiaoping was okay but the 6/4/1989 wasn't okay; and real corruption era starts after this, which is when the Ugly Toad came into power.

    The aim to achieve total wealth equality in exact amount is impossible. It would take away a lot of opportunities for others, and would only destroy the economy of one or more countries. Capitalism is not so good either, Socialism is the best!

    He Came to power with surprisingly democratic ideas (including free elections, limits on state power) and a willingness to work with the West. Bad circumstances (including America's refusal to compromise and the Korean War) led to China siding with the Warsaw Pact. Promoted good aspects of social equality, the fact that under Mao, women gained marriage equality rights, divorce rights, and opportunities to hold the same positions of power and occupations as most men was a huge leap. Also, he pushed for the use of simplified Chinese to successfully increase literacy rates across China and made an (albeit misguided).
    yes, he also has a bad side, such destroying some chinese culture and destroy all that oppose him.

    Yep, the Tian - an - men Protest. He was critizied for abusing Human Right. Sadly most chinese doesn't know that...

    But none of these democratic ideas he ever used -- he only used it as propaganda to overthrow KMT. Liu Shaoqi just simply said he did a mistake and Mao was deeply offended... around a few years later, he made Cultural Revolution and incited many people to hit and denounce Liu Shaoqi who done nothing wrong

    (there are two Chinas in the world don't forget) Yes, women gained equality but the KMT also granted the same thing too. But still, many girls were fooled or forced into prostitutes for the highest officials; and Mao is a power-hungry man of lies anyway.

    "Improve literacy rates"? No, no, you never improve literacy rate like that. If so, then why did Authentic (Traditional) Chinese get used for many, many centuries? Look at Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Kinmen; all of them literate. But in mainland? Those many in the poor areas doesn't even have the chance to go to school. So it's more of the government's problem than the script's problem,

    Capitalism is better than Communism, yes. We have freedom but the freedom is a little too wild and unchecked. Pure capitalism don't work just like communism. Socialism takes care of people's welfare while not taking away the rights to choose from the individual (excluding high taxes, but you get many welfare benefits anyway)

    Yep, they must have known Democracy. I Hope CCP will soon embrace Democracy.
    But, Socialism takes away the liberty to decide how you wish to spend your money; it presupposes you are not clever to use your money. Your income must be yours as you wish. Now it is the government’s
    Pretend someone wishes to spend their earnings on food, clothing, shelter, music, and alcohol—from highest order to lowest. Under a socialist regime, this may be impossible. After taxes, the individual may only be able to afford food, clothing, and shelter—while being provided with government transportation, health-care, and a public park—all of which they may or may not care about.

    Yep, but for some Countries Like The United States, that "Freedom" they get makes they Hardworking, and diligent, because they know they will be in competition with another people. So, many good product made.
    In some country that doesn't even know what Capitalism is, it's bad. They may wrongly use the freedom they get. So yes.

    Nah, don't put your hopes on CCP, at least before Xi Jinping. They only did economic reform while refusing to go democratic. They want to remain in power and wealth forever. Things might get better after Xi Jinping takes control, tho. The CCP will very likely be finished in this year, and China will finally be democratic and free! :D

    Ehh, looks like I used the wrong term (but still, notice how I said "not taking away the rights to choose"). What I meant was Centrism, like in those welfare countries such as Denmark and Sweden (?); where you would still get social welfare benefits while also retaining moderate economic freedom.

    XI Jinping is at least working hard to remove Jiang Zemin's influence (that ugly toad who picks his nose publicly, touches Mozart's sacred piano, and was infamously known for "Too young, too simple, sometimes naive") and hopefully one day dissolve the damn CCP from existence.

    Used to be in Philippines. A 'certain' president won an election, and actually caught the many hopes of many Filipinos and their beliefs. He may have lead the country into its golden age, it would have been the same with Taiwan or Singapore, having more economy and literacy. If not for his dictatorship, and his lies. Those suffering was passed unto the future, and the country weakens. Atleast today, it recovers, but slowly.

    Speculations and predictions say so. He endured the, you know, going to the villages and forced to be a farmer during the Cultural Revolution. There were many other subtle and unnoticable things about Xi Jinping that tells him apart from the other CCP leaders, such as how he treated North Korea and Hong Kong. (Hong Kong's president (?) was de facto chosen by CCP before XI Jinping, now suddenly things became different in HK)

    No, actually a lot of mainlanders weren't CCP members, in fact even some of those used to be CCP members quited the CCP too (Tuidang movement). Quite many fans of ROC and KMT in mainland China too.

    Collapse, not in the way of revolution but like what happened in the Soviet Union. Did you see entire Russia collapse after 1991? How about East Germany after the wall collapsed? No, right?

    And even if it was to collapse, hopefully the ROC in Taiwan steps in and assumes control (not so likely) -- or someone great like Sun Yat-sen and Chiang Kai-shek shows up again.

There was even a few professors and teachers who criticized Mao and CCP, as well as telling the true history. One of the professors got harassed by CCP gangsters after he talked bad about Mao online.

    Yes, but that's only possible if Jiang Zemin and Mao Tse-tung's influence wane. PRC needs to surrender itself to legitimate ROC.

    That's the day when many captured people from the "Volunteer" Army chose to be sent to ROC and that was the day when these people arrived at Taiwan.

    Yep, PRC sure grows, but at the cost of many. The people's livelihood, for example. Don't look at all those fancy towers and stuffs, look at the GDP per capital and its growth. It's slow and pitifully small! Many people nowadays are fed up with CCP and hope one day they fall.

    NK needed to put some people to be blames and hated so people won't care so much about NK regime itself. They saw Korean War, they knew Japanese occupied Korea 1910-1945, so NK just found "legit" figures to put all the blames on. "Famine? Americans and Japanese did it! Flood? Must be the Americans!"
