Dancing Through the Darkness of Mao’s China

Via John "We see the beginning of this 'darkness' in the USA now, where people are beaten for wearing a MAGA hat or are silenced, or harassed - even denied employment based on pressures, both overt and covert, from this domestic group of latter day Maoists masquerading as the (former) Democrat Party.  If you're not worried about that,you're not paying enough attention, and you need to change that for your own sake as well as the sake of those whom you care for/about, including your fellow Americans. We are confronting raw evil from the left and the question becomes, what are we willing to do to fight back? Are we willing to come to the aid of our beleaguered president,beset from all sides, as he tries to defend us?   I hope so."

Book Review: Tia Zhang’s journey of pain and triumph is brilliantly told in ‘Dancing Through the Shadow’

Sometimes the impact of mass tragedy gets lost in the statistics. When death tolls are in the tens of millions, such large-scale suffering becomes remote and untouchable. The human capacity for empathy has reached its limit.

On the other hand, personal accounts of those who lived through atrocities do more to shed light on them than any sterile statistic could. One such story is told by Agnes Bristow in “Dancing Through the Shadow,” a first-person account of life in Mao Zedong’s China.
