‘Contemporary China has grown out of the China of the past; we are Marxist in our historical approach and must not lop-off our history. We should sum up our history from Confucius to Sun Yat-sen and take over this valuable legacy.’

This was Mao’s position from the earliest days of the Communist evolution n China, which was known and agreed to as dialectically correct in the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin. This was the position of the USSR until (the Trotskyite) Khrushchev took-over the leadership in 1956. When China, (that is Mao Zedong) took exception to Khrushchev’s anti-Stalinist revisionism, Khrushchev (assisted by Trotskyites in the West), initiated a vicious ‘anti-China’ campaign, (premised upon Eurocentric, anti-Chinese racism), that continues to this day. Mao never ‘invaded’ Tibet, and never ‘oppressed’ or ‘banned’ religion – but he did declare the Communist Government of China to be both ‘secular’ and ‘scientific’. This is why today, Communist China, with its non-inverted mind-set and humanitarian approach to learning, leads the world in scientific development and technological development. The racist Trotskyite counter-narrative would have us believe that China leads the world due to its ‘backwardness’, ‘duplicity’, and ‘totalitarian’ government. This false analysis proves the ‘inverted’, bourgeois mind-set that underlies the divisive Trotskyite ideology.
