Thearin's Comments on: Comparison and Outcomes of Mao Zedong's Regime and Deng Xiaoping's Regime
In the Great Leap Forward you said that “I think no one likes Mao besides several dictatorial leaders, such as Adopt Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot and a few other guys in Italy and Cuba, and the rest of the world.” First, I might agree with if you said that former communist leaders such as Lenin, Stalin, Fidel Castro in Cuba, and Pol Pot tended to like Mao Zedong because they were communist leaders and believed in the same ideology. Furthermore, I think that the may like each other in term of ideology but in term of state interest and privacy they may not like each other. For example, even though Soviet Union and China were both communists but their relationship was not always good. You may know that during Mao was in power he also broke relationship with Russia due to the cause that Soviet stop providing technical assistance to China. Second, I might agree with if you said Mussolini in Italy and Adolf Hitler like Mao Zedong because they were dictators. But in term of ideologies they may not like each other. For example, ideologically, Mao was a communist but Hitler was not. I agree that they both opposed Democracy and capitalist economic system and they both used socialism as their economic system but their socialism was also different. Mao supported Marxist socialism but Hitler strongly criticized Marxian socialism in the respect that Marxian socialism rejects private property when Nazi socialism encouraged having private property.
