The Chinese, like everybody else, have done some dumb things in their long history. The dumbest thing they did was to adopt Socialism/Communism. So they still suffer under the dictatorship of the Chinese Communist Party.
Thanks cass.

With all due respects though: Did not the Communists come to power at the end of a long and bloody civil war?

Well, it means that the Communists came to power by force of arms. A people who are conquered by force of arms normally have to live according to the terms and conditions imposed by the conqueror.

You are right. Then it is not the Chinese people's fault. It is the fault of the Socialists/Communists.

We call the same cadre of characters Social Justice Warriors which defo has a more Mao's Little Red Book feel than the term actual Chinese are using. Amusing irony in that .....;).......
Here's an interesting description of SJW by Jordan Peterson...

Cassowary, rather than apportion blame, better to dismiss it as an historic tragedy:

The preceding regime, the Kuomintang, had lost the confidence and support of the Chinese people.
