Intro, and Mao Zedong

My name is Justin Gregorio. I've lived in Ohio for about five or so years, but I'm from Colorado originally. One of the most frequently asked questions I get after making this statement is, "Why would you do that!?!" The answer is, not by choice. I enjoy anything related to computers, politics, humor, or philosophy. Which basically means everything, so that statement didn't really clarify much about me at all.

This article, or page really, summarizes the life of Mao Zedong. This gives some perspective which helps to understand the circumstances of the essay analyzed in class. Mostly just names and dates, but what's really important is the information the page gives about Mao's history and radical political positions. Whether for good or bad Mao Zedong was a massive influence in shaping China as it is today.

  1. Nice to meet you there Justin! I appreciate your sense of humor. Colorado is a beautiful state! One of my favorite, but hey its nice here in Ohio too!

    Now, I loved the little "article" it was full of information and facts which I love and it covered all of the basics well without being too short or too long. So, "just right!" I think its pretty amazing all of the things he went through, the forming of a communist party, defeating the war lords in Northern China, fighting a civil war, fighting against Japan, trying to see his vision through, and also fighting with his health. Even though I disagree with a lot of what he did and who he was I certainly admire all that he accomplished and did in his life!
