50 milion death is a rumour, only about 8 milion of death in great leap forward, and it was much less than 8 milion in cultrual revolution.<quoted text>
Haha big confusion! 50 million is a high end estimate for the people who starved to death from the Great Leap Forward. Wenhua Da Geming had FAR fewer deaths. Actually, Mao did order the military to allow all violence. He even allowed student violence against the soldiers until he later called them in to end the faction fighting.
Mao encouraged the violence and used v arious slogans which were shouted in the great ralleys,such as 'to be violent and bloody is good!' There is a famous scene in the biggest rally where a little girls ame is Violence and Mao praises her.
This violence only lasted between 1967-9'
All of violences were caused by students--red guard, mao just met them at Tian'an men square and encouraged them to conduct revolution to the end.
All the things mao did was for people, he didn't have selfishness, undeniably he made some mistakes, but he still got supports of people, he sent his son to Korean battlefield and his son died there, but he didn't allow to carry the corpse back to China, because he said" my son is the same as others, people's sons aren't carried back, my son shouldn't be carried back either."
so Mao Anying has been reposing in North Korea.
Don't forget when Mao died, many of you western nations have mourned him.
