Mao: hero or villain?

38,000,000 people dying in a four-year period is hard to fathom, but that’s how many starved to death in China from 1958-1961 during the Great Leap Forward when Mao was the Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party. This does not even include 10,729,000 that died in labor camps, were executed, or were targeted minorities. A population chart is a great aid to better visualize how destructive this period was for the people of China.

Look at the two images above. What do you observe?

How was this information managed in China at the time?

If this happened in a democracy, how would the media react?

Confucious say…

For example:

Respect yourself and others will respect you.

Have no friends not equal to yourself.

When anger arises, think of the consequences.

Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

China created the ‘one child policy’ to help solve the problem of a fast growing population. Watch the video below. As a class or group answer the questions as insightfully as you can.
