I’m your cult of personality

I was a fan Living Colour 20 years ago, and this article today made me think of their first hit.

I’ve never understood the personality cult of Mao in China, not least because Deng Xiao Ping deserves the credit for what China has become since Mao’s death. It always seemed to me they idolize the wrong person. I mean 70 million people is more than a rounding error.

So I get it that the Chinese excel at hagiography, but this is just bizarre. I honestly don’t know what else to say.

I hope Obama’s visit goes well and we can avoid a trade war with China. Given the amount of American debt they hold, our ties with China are more important than ever. The world economy is fragile enough.
