The People of China vs. The Maoists

Be afraid. Be VERY afraid. No, make that deathly afraid. You might die a gruesome death.

The People of China need be afraid, for they will suffer the full wrath of their false-communist, megalomaniac, egotistical, scheming, and ever so slightly unhinged dictator, Mao.

How so?

During the Great Leap Forward (1958-1962), the People suffered massively from Mao’s absurd, senseless, scientifically bankrupt projects. He commanded the digging of 4 feet deep trenches between rows of rice in fields, which was hugely labor-intensive, only for the peasants to find out that no rice could grow in the poor mineral soil found at this depth especially with excessive drainage. The labor was performed by peasants, as well as city dwellers (intellectuals) forcibly relocated to the countryside for this purpose. Whatever rice grew despite all this was left to rot the fields. What??? That’s right, Mao decided that China’s steel production had to be greatly increased, so he had everyone melt every piece of metal they owned instead of harvesting the crop. Then Mao blamed the sparrows for eating the rice, so that everyone was busy chasing and killing sparrows. Without the sparrows to eat them, the insects multiplied to eat every grain and seed.

Disease, death, starvation, despair ensued in all of China. Perhaps as many as 60 million people died. Yet the People had to pretend to be content and well-fed; to do otherwise meant execution.

One man, and one man alone was brave enough to stand up to Mao, and criticize him openly, if meekly by most standards (1959). This man was a believer in the Communist ideals, a brave and principled man. He was Marshall Peng Dehuai. He was, not surprisingly, fired from his post.

After the Great Leap Forward debacle, the Communist Party commissioned an opera to ridicule the old days of the Emperors. This opera was called “Hai Rui dismissed from office” about a man who suffered for criticizing the Emperor.

And that got Mao really, really mad. Mao realized that the opera had become wildly popular because the People enjoyed it in the secret of their hearts as a glorification of their hero, Peng Dehuai, for daring to stand up to him.

In 1963-1960, the dire conditions the People were living under were compounded by bad weather and natural disasters. Now, another man very high up and close to Mao, Liu Shaoqi, quietly started to end Mao’s crazy policies, and bring some relief to the People’s misery. Now, Liu was becoming a hero too...

That did not sit well with the Great Helmsman. Something had to be done.

Purges. Public humiliations. Executions. Jail sentences. Harassment. Thuggery. Brainwashing. Anarchy. Destruction. Mayhem. Theft. Betrayals.

Orchestrated by the Maoists: Mao’s bitter and paranoid fourth wife Jiang Qing, and Mao’s #2 man Lin Biao, who intensified the personality cult propaganda, the Cultural Revolution fired up teenagers to destroy the world and punish their elders. Teachers made to grovel to the students... schools were closed... and the youth given orders to steal and kill.

It is 1966. You are in the twisted universe of the Cultural Revolution. Your goal is to survive. You can only trust your family (no scum Masons here).

To survive, you have to toe the line, you have to send others to their deaths. It’s plain logic that when you are the torturer, you are not the torturee. But deep in your hearts, you live with the fear that you or your loved ones may be the next target. Don’t draw attention to yourself... follow the program, never too much, never too little... either will get you killed. And never forget that today’s hero is tomorrow’s hanged man.

Welcome comrades, and get posting! Notice that all roles were selected at random, using the random number generator. Also, if you have any questions about your role that have not been answered already, please drop a PM by.

BTW, Pooky, is my Chinese ok?

"The struggle has begun! The struggle has begun!"

You see rows of teachers with black ink poured over their heads so that they look like a "black gang," with placards hanging around their necks bearing words such as "reactionary academic authority," "class enemy" or "capitalist roader" and a red cross, like condemned prisoners awaiting execution.

They are wearing dunce caps and carry dirty brooms, shoes and dusters on their backs.

Pails filled with heavy rocks around their necks, too, so heavy that the wire cuts deeps into their skin. All barefoot, hitting on broken gongs and pots, forced to cry out "I am black gangser So-and-So."

They are made to kneel down, burn incense and beg Chairman Mao to pardon their cimes.

Beatings and torture soon follow, eating nightsoil, insects, electrical shocks, broken glass, hanged like an airplane by the arms and legs.

Someone shouts: "Are we being excessive in this movement? No! There's no excess. This is a good movement!"

Suddenly, you have to participate, because if you don't... you will be a victim, too.

How this dreadful day will end is anyone's guess...
