China’s Socialist God

– You were born in China in 1958, the beginning of the great leap forward and you were in China for- – [Li] 26 years. – 26 years. Tell me a little bit about your experience dealing with communism face to face. – Starting with, I was born, my mom told me after 56 days, I don’t know why, government determined
maternity leave is 56 days. So after 56 days, I was
put in boarding school because my parents were
sent to make steels and the political activities. They were never home, they
couldn’t take care of me. I was in the boarding school until I was eight years old,
and start first grade. So, that’s my first taste of communism because there’s no family. And I didn’t experience mother’s love and father’s hug because
they were not allowed. Soon after I was born,
there was great famine, in ’60, ’61, ’62 and we were starving. And also as a little kid
we have to participate in collecting scrap metals. Actually just break down ready products, like pots and pans, door knobs. And to melt it down, pretend to be a product of steel to meet the quota the government set up. We live on campus, in China
you get housing were you work. My mother was a university professor so we live on a university campus. All the sports grounds are turned into production ground for steels. And the professors and
students make some kind of thermos, I don’t know, they didn’t even understand how to do that. And first all the trees
are cut down to burn and then all the chairs and tables, all burned to melt down those steels and then get along. And they would drum, and dance and sing, march on the streets say, “Yeah, we got 10 kilo,” or whatever steel. Mao said God didn’t make the world perfect so men have to make it better. And men will definitely make it better so for example, a Communist soldier, at a very young age, we were ordered to kill
all the birds in China, because the birds will eat the crops and human being will have less to eat. So we were put on the
rooftop and on the tree to make noise so won’t let the birds rest. And the birds were all
eliminated that way. But the backfire in the coming season, the insects especially locusts just all over China and
destroyed all the crops. Three years of famine. And of course the government
called it natural disaster but it was totally man-made disaster because of the decision
to kill all the birds. – What a disaster, so you were immersed in the failures of central
planning from day one. – Yes, and actually Mao’s slogan was human being will fight the nature and win. So actually it’s fighting God. God didn’t make the world perfect so we as a human being we have to fight and make the world better. That’s his principle. – Yeah. – So also one thing I did
I’ll always remember was in the countryside, there’s
river going through villages and people’s livelihood
is around the river. They use that for drinking water, to wash and to irrigate field. And of course rivers are
not straight, winding river. And the government said, “This
river take too much land, “so let’s make the river straight.” Dug a new river and so we can get more land. So I was part of the labor. And dug, dug, dug day and night. So we got a straight river bed and that day everybody was celebrating and they blocked the old
river and let the water go through the new river. I think after a few
meters, water disappeared. Because the land was dry. And the water just sucked down. In the old river, the bottom was sand. So it couldn’t be used for agriculture. So not just wasting the
labor and the new land and also waste the old river. After that the whole area had no water. We couldn’t have any water. We can dig- we could- we did dig wells but because that area
was so rich in mineral, the water from the well,
when we cooked the rice, the rice turned gray or green. So we couldn’t drink it,
but people still did it. And so a lot of people just died. – You were telling me
a story earlier about Mao’s decision that in
the mountains of China you would grow rice. – Right. – And you can’t grow
rice in the mountains. – You’re right. Because it was a hilly landscape, and the soil was very cakey. And when you add water
it became very sticky. So you couldn’t grow rice. But Mao said you couldn’t
grow anything but rice because we’re on the
south of Yangtze River. So they have to make the terraces because not much land there. That’s why a lot of people go sight-seeing to the terraces, they
thought it was beautiful. For me, I just hate it, because
so much work put into it. Some mountains have
nothing, it was easier, some have trees and bamboos,
we have to cut them down, and put the rocks away
and making terraces. And there’s water. Terraces grow rice need water,
but they’re on the mountains so we have to carry water on our backs. Going up, dumping into the fields, endless trips, every
day, hundreds of times, to soak the land, the soil. What happened was, because
the soil was virgin, there’s not enough nutrient there. And was not naturally
was not good for rice, not enough water. So we end up putting more
seeds in there than we harvest. And then the government
said, “Okay the problem is “you don’t plant enough.” Single cropping become double cropping become three times a year. And the soil just refused. And become so hard, what we did, they order all of us, especially kids, we just go into the fields, the terraces and we hold hands, we step on the soil until it becomes soft. We go in line, back and
forth, back and forth, step on the soil, and then we plant. Still, didn’t produce anything. The farmer at the end of the
year, because the government also give us quota, the
quota was determined by the central government, by somebody fabricated the number so it was ridiculously high. So what happened to the farmers, they give everything they
produced to the government they still not enough so
they owe the government and in order to eat they have
to borrow from the government the food they produced to eat. And usually a family have a big wok filled with water, and
put one handful of rice, to make a soup. I remember I could count
how many grain of rice in my one bowl of soup. So you just drink that all day long. At the end of the day, a little
leftover, you feed the pig. The pig was also very, very skinny. So that’s the peasants. And I thought to myself,
they are the producers, the supplier of the
livelihood of the country, if they are this poor, where all these food come from? And I can tell even I
was living in the village I could tell the whole
country was starving, because that’s reality. My brother would go to
the fields and find hoes and they notice mice, rat,
and they will capture them and eat it. We ate everything that didn’t kill us. Yeah, I refuse to eat rat, but my brother he was a growing boy, he
was so hungry, they ate it. And go to the pond and
get the snails and frogs. I was very good at cooking frogs. Yeah, we ate everything
that didn’t kill us. The tree bark, tree leaves, the grass. I knew all the grass which is edible. – Friedrich Hayek has this
phrase, the pretense of knowledge and later his final book
was The Fatal Conceit. You’re talking about a Communist dictator that not only wanted to
redesign the economy, he wanted to re-engineer the earth. – Yes, that’s the most,
the strongest slogan. – Yeah. – In Chinese we say (speaking
in foreign language), people will definitely win over god. – Wow, so let’s take a step back. You said something that
I think people will find unbelievable but it was
a key part of your life, you didn’t grow up with your parents, you were sent to boarding school because a key premise of
the Cultural Revolution was that the family didn’t matter anymore. The State was now the family,
am I saying that correctly? – Yes, absolutely, because
when we were little, we have to learn songs,
we have to sing everyday. Say mother is dear, father is dear, but nothing more dear
than the Communist party. So they’re greater than
your mother and your father and dear Chairman Mao, that’s
the song we have to sing every single day. So a family doesn’t matter. The party and Chairman
Mao is more dear to us than the family. So we should always put their
benefit and their interests ahead of ourselves, our families,
our parents, our children. – And the purpose of that
was to dehumanize people. – Yes. – They may not have said it that way but it was to make sure
that those loyalties didn’t exist anymore, that people didn’t care about each other. And that they felt one obligation and that was to Mao. – Yes, for example, it’s funny, at the wedding, the people
don’t say I love you or or vow to stay together for better for worse, whatever. They say, okay, now we vow
our loyalty to Chairman Mao and party and country, that’s their wedding vow. Yeah, people don’t matter. The relationship don’t matter. As long as you love party and the country. Actually it’s still now, it’s
not just Cultural Revolution. It came back, it’s still the same. I am very thankful that
we didn’t become crazy. Many of our relatives became
crazy even until today. They are afraid of so many
things, they are traumatized. And, yeah. All the people were
really, really creative of humiliating other people or torture. There’s so many different
forms of torture. Many of my family members
couldn’t take it anymore. They commit suicide, so many. The youngest one was 16 years old. Beautiful young girl. She killed herself, my
favorite cousin killed himself and his mother
also killed herself. All different ways, throw
herself in front of the train, and the cousin jumped from the chimney after drinking a lot of lyme water. All different ways. They couldn’t take it,
they didn’t understand what is going on. – So many Americans have
this gauzy, almost romantic view of socialism and communism, they probably don’t believe you right now. They’re probably saying,
“That can’t possibly be true.” – It happened, even Chinese
people, they criticize me. I said, “Well I did
not read from anywhere. “I lived through, that’s
my personal life.” I sang those songs, I participate in those kind of weddings, I did
all of my labor work, forced by the government. Yeah, I did all, I lived through that. I watched people die on
the street of starvation. When we were sitting in
the house, eating dinner, very, very simple dinner,
without much anything, people just walk into
the house, our house, and sat there say, “You have
to share your food with me “because we’re dying.” And that’s how we lived.

  1. You guys make some really good videos that just don't get many views – have you considered offering some to ReasonTV to mirror at no cost just to get yourselves a bit more exposure?

  2. Yeah, so that was the Communists' form of a "pride" celebration: Straight river "pride," eliminating bird "pride," replacing parents with Chairman Mao "pride"….

    Li Schoolland describes the religion of Mao
    "I didn't experience Mother's love and Father's hug, because they were not allowed….

    Mao said "God did not make the world perfect so man have [sic] to make it better and man will definitely make it better"

    "We were ordered to kill all the birds in China. Because birds would eat the crops and human being[s] would have less to eat…. The birds were all eliminated that way… But it backfired. And in the coming season, the insects, especially the locust… just all over China and destroyed all the crops…. Three years of… famine.

    Of course the government called it [a] "natural disaster." But it was totally [a] man-made disaster because of the decision to kill all the birds….

    Actually Mao's slogan was 'Human beings will fight the nature and win.' So actually it is fighting God.

    Mao said "God didn't make the world perfect. So we as human beings. we have to fight and make the world better." That's his [Mao's] principle.

  3. I'M SCARED TO DEATH!! THE MORE I LOOK INTO THE HOLY BIBLE, I GET MORE CONFUSED. MORE LIES AND MORE CONTRADICTIONS. I'M DIVING INTO MY THIRD EYE TO REALLY FIND OUT WHO IS THE CREATOR OF THIS PLANET AND WHAT IS INSIDE OUR BRAIN THAT MAKES US THINK AND BELIEF IN A SUPREME GOD, A CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. THAT'S WHY I AM TRACKING AND DECODING THE HEBREWS, MOSES AND THE YAHOO – YAHWEH GODS!!!!! TRACKING YAHWEH'S LIES AND THE CONTRADICTIONS OF THE BIBLE. TRACKING, DECODING THE JESUS ENIGMA/PARADOX AND THE PAINFUL EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS FROM HUMAN TROGLODYTE TO HUMAN GOD BECAUSE PRAYING FOR A GOD WHO WASN'T THERE NOR ANYWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE TO SOLVE OUR HUMAN DILEMMAS IS NOT A WAY OUT TO ESCAPE FROM OUR REALITY! DOES YAHWEH UNDERSTAND CONSCIOUSNESS?

    ACCORDING TO KARL MARX, "GOD IS NOTHING MORE THAN A PROJECTION OF THE IDEAL HUMAN." THE PERSON WHO CAN'T FULFILLS HIS ESSENCE IN THE REAL WORLD, ACHIEVES IT IN THE GREAT BEYOND AND THIS FANTASY LETS HIM BEAR THE MISERY OF HIS DAILY LIFE. KARL MARX CALLED RELIGION, THE OPIUM OF THE PEOPLE. BECAUSE IT LOADS PEOPLE INTO A PASSIVE FORGETFUL STUPOR.

    Sabbath-breaking Punished:
    32 Now while the sons of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man gathering wood on the sabbath day.
    33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and to all the congregation;
    34 and they put him in custody because it had not been declared what should be done to him.
    35 Then the Lord said to Moses, “The man shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp.”
    36 So all the congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him to death with stones, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
    37 The Lord also spoke to Moses, saying,
    38 “Speak to the sons of Israel, and tell them that they shall make for themselves tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations and that they shall put on the tassel of each corner a cord of blue.
    39 “It shall be a tassel for you to look at and remember all the commandments of the Lord, so as to do them and not follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot,
    40 so that you may remember to do all My commandments and be holy to your God.
    41 “I am the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt to be your God; I am the Lord your God.”
    The Sign of the Sabbath:
    12 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
    13 “But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.
    14 ‘Therefore you are to observe the Sabbath, for it is holy to you. everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.
    15 ‘For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord; whoever does any work on the sabbath day shall surely be put to death.
    16 ‘So the sons of Israel shall observe the sabbath, to celebrate the sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.’
    17 “It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day He ceased from labor and was refreshed.”
    18 When He had finished speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God."

    IN CONCLUSION, IN MY JOURNEY LOOKING FOR A DIVINE ENTITY, I ONLY FOUND WARS, HUMAN LIES DESIGNED, FABRICATED AND EXTRAPOLATED TO MANIPULATE HUMAN PUPPETS. HUMAN TROGLODYTES CONTROLLING THEIR ENVIRONMENT IN ORDER TO IMPOSE THEIR AUTHORITY AND GOD'S AUTHORITY TO CONTROL OTHERS. YES, AN EYE FOR AN EYE, VINDICTIVE AND ILLUSIVE YAHWEH. NIETZSCHE FINALLY KILLED GOD IN HIS BOOK. "GOD IS DEAD" AND THEN ADOLF HITLER CAME FEW YEARS LATER TO TRY TO EXTINGUISH THE JEWISH RACE AND OTHER INFERIOR HUMANS IN THE NAME OF HIS NAZI BIOLOGICAL CLEANSING THEORY. SO, MY FINAL QUESTION IS. WHERE WAS YAHWEH AND THE WHOLE HIERARCHY/ARMY OF DEMIGODS WHO WERE CREATED IN MESOPOTAMIA WHEN HITLERS WAS TURNING THE JEWISH RACE INTO ASHES IN ORDER TO CREATE A NEW WORLD OF PURE GERMANIC RACE, THE UBERMENSCH, THAT WILL BE CONTROLLED ONLY BY THE WHITE GERMANIC SUPREMACISTS?

    IN MY OPINION, THE BIBLE SHOULD BE DOWNGRADED FROM THE WORD OF GOD STATUS TO A COMPILATION OF DISORGANIZED HUMAN IDEAS, REALITIES, AND FANTASIES. THE HUMAN BIBLE CREATED BY HUMAN TROGLODYTES IS OUR ATTEND TO RECORD EVERY HUMAN EXPERIENCE IN A CHAOTIC WORLD. A WORLD WITHOUT LITERATURE. THE BIBLE IS JUST THAT, A COMPILATION OF DISORGANIZED PRIMITIVE LITERATURE. YES, THE FIRST COMPLEX HUMAN NOVELLA USING GOD AS OUR CREATOR AND THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE.

    NOW I UNDERSTAND, ADOLPH HITLER SPOOKY EXPERIMENT WITH THE JEWS AND REDUCING THE HEBREW RACE TO NOTHING. YES, TO LESS THAN A VEGETABLE BY DESTROYING THE JEWISH COMMUNIST POPULATION AND TO CREATE NEW JOBS FOR THE UNEMPLOYED GERMANIC RACE. YES, ADOLPH HITLER EMBRACED CHRISTIANITY, THE ROMANS MEGALOMANISTIC BEHAVIOR AND FINALLY THE IDEAS OF FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE TO EXTERMINATE THE HEBREW RACE TO CREATE THE NEW GERMANY WITH PURE WHITE GERMANIC SUPERMEN THAT WILL CONTROL THE WORLD WITHOUT A MONO-UNIVERSAL GOD.

  4. Spreed this video before Youtube delete it claiming it's offensive. They are on a deleting/banning frenzy trying to errase history or the truth.

  5. "communist god" not "socialist". Huge difference.
    Communism – You have two cows, the government takes both of them away from you, puts them into a barn with everyone else's barn, you are forced to take care of them, and the government gives you as much milk as it thinks you deserve.

    "pure" Socialism – You have two cows, you give one to your neighbor who doesn't have a cow.

    What this woman explains, and what happened does not match anything remotely resembling socialism.
    Please learn the difference if you are going to make an argument against something. Thank You.

  6. because there were no famines in china before the communists all expect there were before the prc was founded there was a famine every 10 years or so in china and after the communists took power there was 1 and then never again

  7. One of the greatest powers of communism is convincing you that you are free and that all of the bad things you hear about communism are lies and untrue

  8. No way this page is advertised properly. I found this site off a you tube ad. This should have shown up in my feed at some point.

  9. The laws of nature, and nature's God, have NO place in creating a communist utopia/dystopia.
    Mao and Chavez, and too many others, have made the true and living God their greatest Enemy ,
    and everyone who bears His likeness, even themselves: the bearers of their greatest enmity.

  10. Socialism = Stupidity. Everyone except the American intelligentsia knows this. Unfortunately, it might take an economic collapse or a violent revolution to teach it to them.

  11. She is right when she says it is back. Check out https://www.inkstonenews.com/ It is a website that focuses on what is going on in China. Persecutions of anyone who does not "follow the Chinese way". They get thrown in re-education
    camps.

  12. The capitalists and their religious allies will stop at nothing until we all bow down to both Jesus amd Mammon. Never!!!
