MAO Zedong, a fervent evangelist leader born on 26 December 1893 in central China’s province Hunan. Mao is the father of the Chinese revolution, freedom fighter and strict disciplined historic figure who changed the destiny of Chinese people to live with pride, challenging the world & international system ruled and dominated by selfish and cunning western world with hegemonic & imperialistic designs. A real and substantial symbol of change. Mao transformed China into a modern country. Mao basically hailed from a peasant family. Mao was truly inspired by Marxist theory. Mao was anti-Western and anti-Imperialist and wanted to oust foreign occupiers from his country and firmly believed in the re-unification of China.
Mao established the Communist Party of China (CPC) as its founding leader in 1921. Mao was determined to transform China from conventional agrarian society to a modern, industrial society, the mission, the dream which he simply fulfilled in just the span of five years (1958-1960). The target and goal which was next to impossible to attain but as a motivational, true inspirational and revolutionary leader, he launched a convulsive campaign of “Great Leap Forward”. Mao mobilized and pushed the Chinese masses to gather under his dynamic command and leadership to reshape the vast population & economy of the most ancient country of the world to meet and address China’s industrial and agricultural needs & problems under socialist economic ideology. Mao’s dream to evolve China from agrarian economy into modern industrial society also aimed with a highest ability to compete with western industrialized nations who were too exploitative, humiliating and brutal towards underdeveloped economies of the world. Mao always wanted China to get rid of the clutches of imperialist and racist tools of western world. Mao, Founder of Modern and civilized China, always strived for devising an institutional mechanism or plan for channeling industrialization to China to avert a dependent and relying approach on foreign western countries as he was of firm belief that Chinese is the only nation capable of doing anything. Off course, every new experiment bound to receive resistance and failures initially and Mao’s Leap and Forward campaign also led to certain unfortunate catastrophic results yet Mao remained steadfast during entire nerve breaking crisis and adopted self-reliant measures and advised his followers to surge ahead and refused to accept any foreign aid to emerge as an unshaken and undeterred leader to convey a loud message of “no foreign interference” in the internal affairs of China as the country could never compromise on issues related to its “sovereignty,” territory and other national interests. Mao under Leap and Forward Campaign provided free lands to poor farmers. This movement gave the Chinese immense sense to surmount any kind of hindrances and achieve a Communist framework through unity, physical labor, and sheer willpower. Mao launched the Great Leap Forward with the phrase “it is possible to accomplish any task whatsoever.” In 1966 Mao launched the ‘Cultural Revolution’ aiming to purge the country of ‘impure’ elements and revive the revolutionary spirit.
Mao Zedong laid the foundation of modern China by destroying the old economic, political and social order and established a communist system that emancipated the population from the intruders mind set. Indeed, it was under Chairman Mao’s charismatic and dynamic leadership that the disaster-plagued Chinese nation stood on its own feet. Mao reshaped a semi feudal, illiterate and agrarian country population into a modern, industrialized socialist state.
Mao always preferred longer-term strategic goals to short-term considerations. Mao has always been considered by Chinese people as the leader of the revolution to thrust China onto a successful modernization trajectory through his revolutionary vision. With incredible perseverance and resilience he guided Chinese people to proudly cherish and carry true spirit of nationalism and helped them get rid of the imperialistic shackles of the western powers putting an end to centuries old humiliating ” unequal and biased treaties” of the bigot western world to subjugate China.
Today MAO TSE?TUNG ideology is taught as a topic in International Relations departments of renowned universities and students worldwide opt for PHD thesis on Mao who was an ideal freedom fighter, supreme commander, great Helmsman, great teacher as well as a great leader of the world.
Mao garnered new identity and respectable recognition for China in international relations and politics. Even, Mao’s equivalent & assertive national interest centered foreign policy compelled United States of America (USA) to change its rigid implacable hostility of about two decades towards China with the visit of American President Richard M. Nixon to Peking, where he was greeted and received by a victorious Mao with wide grin on his lips.
“Once China becomes strong enough to stand alone, it might discard us. A little later it might even turn against us, if its perception of its interests requires it”. HENRY KISSINGER
China achieved enormous economic progress & prosperity under Mao who had dedicated and devoted himself & his entire life for his motherland China and by the time of his death, China under his national vision of leadership had designed its own nuclear bombs and guided missiles and had become a major oil producer.
Without any shadow of doubt MAO’s Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has bolstered China’s superpower status in the world today. Mao architected and championed a clear vision for China to become a fully developed, rich and powerful nation with international influence in the international arena. China revitalized itself under Mao and successfully became self-sufficient in nearly all resources and technologies. Under the leadership of Chairman Mao during the 20th century which has been marked by occupation and civil war in China, the country has undergone a transformation, which has produced a tremendous economic turnaround. China is now a major trading nation which has built up an impressive foreign currency holding and is the world’s largest economy. The Chinese leadership under MAO’s ideology has recognized that economic reform is the only way to achieve the status it desires on its own terms. China has used its economic boom in military strategy to commence an ambitious military modernization to maintain a balance of power to challenge so called western military might that existed since World War Two which would have never been materialized if MAO’s strategy of defensive to offensive had not been adopted by today’s China. China, today has emerged as the only Superpower of the world profoundly shaped by the vision and ideology of Mao the great chairman.
