"It doesn't matter whether it's a black cat or a white cat, so long as it catches mice." So went junta leader Deng Xiaoping's rationale for reintroducing a market economy to the PRC. With Mao still warm in his grave and the "gang" deposed, Deng, initially through his puppet Hua Guofang, began to reverse the work of the Chinese revolution. We can debate the merits of Mao's writings and rule, but what has happened since his death is nothing short of tragic.
Funny and heart-breaking at the same time, read it and weep.
