Mao on Unique China

I will identify this core of values as Maoist. These Maoist values stress the uniqueness of China, the centrality of the peasant and peasant sensibility to government, the importance of communitarian and non-structural values to the process of government, the importance of personal status, and the government of men through virtue as opposed to any definable norms of behaviour. In a very important way these goals could only be embodied in the person of the heroic leader of the Communist Party, Mao Zedong 毛澤東.
