"Less than one year after the “liberation’’, came a Great Terror unleashed by Mao, who handed a killing quota of one per thousand. But in many parts of the country, two or three times more were executed on the most trivial of pretexts. Children were not spared: they were tortured. Villages were burnt to the ground. Cadres picked up people and killed them to meet their quotas. People were shot during public rallies, but, most often, away from the limelight, in forests and ravines. By the end of 1951, nearly 2 million people had thus been eliminated and many more imprisoned. This was the triumph of the revolution.
In 1952, the business community was made the target. Entrepreneurs were dragged to denunciation meetings. In Shanghai, in two months, more than 600 entrepreneurs, businessmen and traders had committed suicide. All existing laws were abolished and a legal system inspired by the one prevailing in the Soviet Union was introduced. In the countryside, collectivization proceeded apace. Farmers lost their tools, their land and their livestock. They became bonded labourers at the beck and call of the party cadre. The regime itself admitted that in 1954, peasants had a third less food to eat compared to the years before the “liberation”. Starvation stalked rural China.
Next was the turn of the intellectuals. In a drive to eliminate dissent and opposition, half a million intellectuals were sent to the gulag.
Side by side, there was the “re-education’’(read brainwashing) of the people. They were taught to learn the right answers, the right ideas and the right slogans according to the diktats of the party."
The truth the dying Chinese Communist Party can never face......
