Mao Tse-Tung on Paper Tigers

Imperialism and All Reactionaries are Paper Tigers

« All reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying, but in reality, they are not so powerful. From a long-term point of view, it is not the reactionaries but the people who are powerful. »

« Imperialism will not last long because it always does evil things. »

« I have said that all the reputedly powerful reactionaries are merely paper tigers. The reason is that they are divorced from the people. Look! Was not Hitler a paper tiger? Was Hitler not overthrown? » 

All the Chairman Maos and Adolf Hitlers in the world are paper tigers. They appear very frightening, but in reality they are distractions from the real tiger, Jahannam (Hell). No matter how bad Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton might be, they probably won’t compete with Mao in terms of horribleness.

« [Ch’in-shih-huang] only buried alive 460 scholars, while we buried 46,000. »
