Cultural Revolution. China, '66-'76, 10 dark years .

Xi Jinping, following the founding policies of Mao ?
In 1966, China's Communist leader Mao Zedong launched what became known as the Cultural Revolution in order to reassert his authority over the Chinese government. 

From Oct 1, 1949 since the founding of the people's Republic of China, Mao held a strong hand in the one party rule in China led by the communist Party. 

Almost a million Chinese perished in this cultural surge of 10 years from '66 - '76.. 

Is the present incumbent Xi Jinping doing the same thing ?

Good for the rest of the world !
