Did Mao ever have a "without bloodshed" moment? I think not!

"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun" was another of his. To bad someone didn't give him some of that power he spoke of.

Victor, southern Utah

So whether with or without bloodshed, politics resides a constant among all people and nations. tyrants wage war for conquest and plunder, not political posturing for the sake of commerce.

It is best not to forget that we are at constant war. The battle for my labors, land, and liberty are incessant. I may not have an interest in politics, but politics has an interest in me.
