China- Chinese scholars sign open letter calling for release of Maoist intellectual

It is surprising that one place where a Maoist can get arrested is the homeland of Mao himself, China. Yes that is right. The birthplace of Maoism is one of the worst places to be a Maoist. Just as with Maoist all over the world, China is a dangerous place for Maoism. Even though Mao is the founder of China and his image is on everything from money to public pictures and statues, his actual philosophy is not so tolerated in that country. The Mao in public places and on money is like "George Washington" Mao. He is the guy that chopped down a chery tree and fessed up to it when his dad asked him if he did it. But that is a harmless Mao who has no opinions of socialist development. People are supposed to admire his pictures and not actually read his philosophy. It is good to know that real Maoism is actually being kept alive in China by real Maoists. – សតិវ ​អតុ

He was charged with “assembling a crowd to disrupt public order”, after expressing his views on “certain historical events”, the letter said, adding that he had been detained at an unspecified location and would be held for six months.
