Six Sentence Story- China, Communism, and Political Conformity

PROMPT WORD:  CENTER

In 1966, Mao Zedong founder and chair of the Chinese Communist Party, initiated The Cultural Revolution specific to ridding any evidence of Capitalism, former Chinese cultural norms, and all resistance to his goal of complete government control.

The population was immediately divided against itself while young people were educated with the ‘Party’ ideology and encouraged to knock down historical statues and intimidate (with force) anyone who objected.

The Chinese people thus became slaves to constant fear and eagerly ‘turned in’ their neighbors, family, and friends to government officials who immediately made -those merely accused- repeatedly confess and apologize for, ‘thought crimes’ against the regime until they exhibited the ‘proper brain-washing’.

Laogai (prisons) were set up for ‘troublemakers’ ( free-thinkers) where re-education was claimed to take place but starvation, torture, and hard labor took the lives of more than 20 million people over the entire movement.

At the center of all this, private property, personal choice, and human dignity, were eliminated due to communism (its gateway drug is socialism) as the Chinese Communist Party remains in power to this day with about one million enslaved political and religious prisoners.

NIKE manufacturing in China uses Uighur slave labor to make their shoes, Disney and most of Hollywood take direction on content from China, and many wealthy, politically powerful people, promote Communist China’s propaganda at prestigious universities and in media throughout the World … I thought you should know.
