China’s Cultural Revolution- A Bloodbath in China and a Humiliation Not Spoken About

|China has not been a warring nation, except within her own borders. It is said that under Mao as many as 70 million or more died. Those numbers are so large it is hard to imagine, so lets focus on a specific time period for it to become more real. If we just look at the period of the Cultural Revolution from 1966-76, we see that around 7- 10 000 000 people died. Remember that at this time China was not in a war with anyone and all of those deaths are from Chinese killing Chinese, and I must say again. there was no war nor revolution at that time. It was merely Chinese killing Chinese to prove their loyalty.
To understand the amount of humans killed during this time, it is like killing two Toronto’s, or one Moscow or one Sao Paolo, or one and one-half London’s.
If that does not get your attention, then it is like killing off the city of Tucson every year for ten years in a row! The funny thing is that the regime who was in power during that bloody period, is still in power and those in power actually cut their political teeth during that time.
