Mao

In 1994, Mao Zedong's personal physician, Dr. Li Zhisui, published The Private Life of Chairman Mao.

According to Li Zhisui, young virgin peasant girls were brought to Mao for sex, often group sex.

Mao had a venereal disease.

Reportedly Mao also liked sexual activity with the 'handsome young men in his guard who put him to bed.'

Mao: The Unknown Story, by Jung Chang and Jon Halliday, shows that Mao was a monster, like Stalin and Hitler.

Mao was 'responsible for the deaths of 70 million people'.

According to Chang and Halliday:

Mao had no great love of the peasants.

He used terror as a political weapon.

He was sadistic.

The Great Leap Forward led to the deaths of 30-40 million people.

The Long March was a sham.

At Yenan, Mao's men marketed opium.

Mao was pitilessness; he neglected his wives.

He lacked idealism.
