In this week’ tutorial, we listened a presentation about Chinese Contemporary Arts. Mao is the most influential person who leads china and was the first chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China. In his life, he made huge contributions to China in terms of politics, economy, society and diplomacy .He leads China to defeat the Japanese invader and has unified China’s Mainland. On October 1, 1949, Mao Zedong stood on the Tiananmen Rostrum and declared to the world: The People’s Republic of China is established formally. Additionally, He correctly understood the nature of revolution in underdeveloped countries and laid out the line and strategy of New Democratic Revolution and protracted people’s war.
Like other greatest person in the world, Mao also made mistakes in his late life such as the Cultural Revolution. He launched many mass movements. Many people were persecuted and the society was unstable. Further growth of economy was obstructed. However, the contributions he made are far more than the mistakes. And I believe the decision he made was according to the situation of China. Satisfied with everyone is impossible. We shouldn’t neglect the contributions Mao made as every Chinese knows that no Mao, no new China.
