The poison of Mao has profound and lasting impact on the world. The reason is two-fold: One is that China is still under the thumb of a communist regime and very little information about Mao's crime during his reign of terror is collected and documented, unlike Hitler's crimes were after the WWII. Another is the moral corruption/confusion of the Chinese themselves and the Western leftists. Both of these groups have an infatuation/worship toward absolute power from a God-like government. Mao's Kitchen in Los Angeles personified both the poison itself and the reasons behind it.
Today The Reason TV in Los Angeles interviewed me about Mao's image and its impact on the world. Che Guevara is another figure Reason TV wants to demystify.
After the interview, we drove to Mao's Kitchen in Los Angeles on Melrose. A shop right by the side of Mao's Kitchen was selling T-shirts with Mao's image on it. I was amazed and outraged by what I saw. The biggest mass murderer in the human history is openly celebrated/mystified/revered in America. Very sad indeed. The outrage from my heart is generated not only from my past memories of Mao's crimes against humanity, but mostly from the indifference toward and tolerance of such an evil figure by majority Chinese and some Americans. Just imagine what would happen if Hitler's image were openly in display and utilized in commence to make money.
To equate tolerance of difference with tolerance of evil shows you how corrupt the Chinese mindset is, and how confused the leftists' mindset is. Even in our daily lives, moral decisions and choices face us at every corner. We must have moral courage and conviction to make a judgment toward many occurrences every moment. Lack of such moral conviction and courage, and evasion of such judgment will doom our own mindset into a meaningless stupor. Long period of such escapes from moral choices in our daily lives will degenerate our conscience and eventually throw us into the man-eating state of zombies. Degeneration comes with long time misuse and no-use of our moral faculties. When finally and suddenly something big happened, we would be like deer in the headlight, paralyzed and helpless.
I hope more and more Chinese will wake up from their moral stupor to find their moral courage and conviction, to find their true humanity. I wish with what I can do and will do, people would start to see that it is indeed possible to be free and happy.
70 million innocent lives perished under Mao’s regime and the atrocities continue today in China. Persecutions of Falungong practitioners, Christians, Tibet Buddhist monks, human rights activists have been intensified before, during and after the Beijing Olympics.
We call upon all conscientious people in the world to mobilize and combat the increasing infiltration, encroachment and growing corruption by the Chinese communist regime onto American political, social, moral and civic landscape, and to assert American values of freedom, justice and human dignity.
These communist regime's activities include providing propaganda material and finance for the Chinese language schools in American to brainwash American-born youths, infiltration, bribery and intimidation of Chinese language media in America, establishing government funded "Confucian Institutes" world wide, encouraging civic moral corruption and immoral establishments such as "Mao's Kitchen" in the Los Angeles, manufacturing Mao's t-shirts and other Mao-related commodities, holding Mao's birthday commemorations, etc. In glorifying and commercializing Mao's (the biggest mass murderer in human history) images throughout America and the world, our very souls as dignified human beings are being degenerated and demoralized. A massive invasion of human decency and basic humanity is now taking place world wide under the government funding and meticulous planning of the communist regime in China. We as conscientious individuals must act to counter such insidious and pernicious scheme.
