Depends on if you are a Chinese communist, and if you consider Chang Kai-shek as the alternative.  Both leaders killed millions of their own people, both before, during and after the Japanese-Chinese war.

A childhood Mao death might have saved the world a LOT of grief...

True, but I would say that of every baby.  Just ask the mother who has to birth them.

No, some babies became doctors, scientists, and even some politicians who actually did good things.

Says you.  The trauma of one mother's labor isn't worth the whole of the human race.

Many mother's disagree with you.

There are a lot of world leaders about whom you could make that charge, past and current.  Mao is hardly unique, even among totalitarians.

Unique in scale, not in action.

There is thought that the nazi's torturing methodology led to many beneficial medical breakthroughs. This is open to great argument, but ask yourself truthfully...should your little one lay dying and the method to save was produced by brutal...brutal methods....... Spock?

Because of Mao, the Internet is censored in China. At least Taiwan has totally uncensored Internet.

And I hope that continues.  It is clearly the intent of Henry Kissinger and the other tupper-ware sleeping zombies ... that the US should become like mainland China.

Mao was, IMO, the most profound and influential human being in the history of civilization.  He took Marxism and DIDDIT on a yooge scale!  Good vid, thanks for posting it, Jason Unruhe vids re Mao are better.
