Imagine China, If Mao was Gandhi

 Someone once asked: “If Gandhi, and not Mao Zedong, was born in China, what would it be like?” In fact, the answer is simple – look at India today! That is, the lower class lacks the spirit of resistance, so they have all along remained oppressed, forming a strong class division in society, and resulting in extremely low degree of class mobility. Therefore, if Gandhi instead of Mao Zedong was born in China, no doubt today’s China would be worse off than India at present. Moreover, China did not have the infrastructure left behind by the colonial British-India rulers.
