So accurate - here’s to pragmatism
Deng Xiaoping, a capitalist and a revolutionary
There are a lot of Chairman Mao fanboys, and gals, out there who romanticize about his leadership of the Chinese cultural revolution. Although successful in that capacity, he failed economically- as most cultural revolutionaries do. Chairman Mao is not the main reason why China is an economic powerhouse and that credit goes to comrade Deng Xiaoping a capitalistic revolutionary.
Deng Xiaoping, known as the architect of Modern China, valued economic stability over political rhetoric and ideology. He also understood that capitalism would work without having to incorporate a western style leadership and bringing China into the market economy didn’t mean abandoning communism. He was right and China still thrives. His image is kinda tainted over his role during the Tiananmen Square riot but his contributions and bravery to press on with economic reforms should not be forgotten.
In my opinion if you lead a revolution and in the end your people are worse off economically you’ve failed. What’s the point if the majority can’t provide for themselves?
