Marx and Lenin weren't exactly your typical Han Chinese and nor were the various European and American scholars who were advocating socialism at the time, but Mao listened to a bunch of them.
When I say 'Mao and the CCP were unlikely to listen to those who had previously been busy oppressing China' I mean that it's unsurprising Mao didn't want to listen when US/UK politicians and global financial organizations tried to coax China into their free trade capitalism world order. The Great Powers had been forcing China into their global system throughout the previous century and up until that point it had worked out very badly for China.
Haha, okay. You don't know what you're talking about. Maybe after I post this, you can repeat points which have already been addressed.
What did you say earlier? " Do a little research." Yeahhhh, go do that.
It's difficult for me to debate with someone when having a serious discussion of the topic at hand is not their reason for entering the debate.
