China 1949-76 – Melbourne Traditionalists Podcast – Episode Thirty Eight


Now is a good time to refresh our Chinese history.

Mark Moncrieff runs through the disasters (perhaps a hundred million dead) unleashed on China by the CCP, including the ironically named Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. He highlights the constant jockeying for power between the “Reds” and the “Experts” and the eventual ascendency of the PLA.

Next episode will focus on the consequences of Richard Nixon’s ‘going to China’ and the opening up of China to the world.
