Greatness of Mao- Chinese Saying

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 29, 2011


During the cultural revolution (starting in 1966) in China there was the following saying
“Heaven and earth are great, but greater still is the kindness of the communist party; father and mother are dear, but dearer still is Chairman Mao”
The funny thing is that the people who grew up chanting this stuff are in power now and will also be the next generation of leaders in China.
