During the end of the Great Leap Forward Mao made a law that you could only have 2 kids. China's Government could not handle all the people, and could not feed them all. 23 Million people starved to death in China because the government couldn't find away to give them food in order to survive.
I want a sister! Also I am hungry Dad.
Gang we already have 2 kids and Mao said we can't have more. Son we just ate dinner.
China used to be the leaders of the world and then we got lazy. China was getting better over time and now people felt a little better. Mao doesn't want you guys to know about the past and now he is trying to brain wash you kids. All you know about is Mao and you think that he is the best.
Son, this is what really happened...
Teachers now gave kids books, and these kids were called Red Gaurds such as Gang. These kids had to be loyal to Mao and learn about their culture. These kids had these books that were filled with content of Mao and Communism. Kids had to keep these books on them and read them daily
He is the best >
Read this you need to know about your country and how good our leader is.
Uh ok sure!
He is not a good leader, Gang thought.
Mao wanted the kids to be the future of China and to continue and never look in the past. These kids listened to Mao but Gang didn't because he knows about all the bad Mao has brought. These kids were only alive for Mao so they only knew about Mao and how good of a leader he is.
All I want is freedom and for my family and I to do what we want.
You were never aloud in China to speak out about your leader the way that Gang did. There were posters (dazibaos) in parts of China and if you spoke out against the government you would get put up their for the whole community to see.
Still the best >
Don't speak about Mao like that. Next time your going on the dazibao.
I cannot stand Mao. What is so good about him anyways.
Mao had just passed away of a heart attack and the country was really sad. Mao was a great leader but now they had to move on to Deng. He told China that he was going to help with agriculture, military, science, and technology.
Woah! This is crazy. But rest in peace Mao for doing your best.
Deng is the new leader! Son we might not so be as bad anymore.
