Hello debate colleuges, casual readers/voters, and my esteemed opponent,

Thank you for creating this debate! These two men changed the history of China, and thus, the world.

Since no rules have been presented, I will use common sense in my arguments and contentions.

Just to be clear, my burden is that Mao Zedond is "better". I will get into that ambiguity in my opening arguments.

Let the games debate begin!

Despite killing many dissidents in taiwan, it pales in comparison to mao. Who killed millions of people through his blunderous great leap forward and the cultural revolution. And even though chiang was very authoritarian he at the very least was able to keep the trains running on time. Also, his son established a better democracy in taiwan than on the mainland within a few years. Under his leadership , taiwan's economy prospered into one of the four asian tigers and all the while keeping its culture intact. If we look at mao's rule, it was filled with political instability caused by the red guards of the cultural revolution. Who not only killed the intelligent people and the artists. But, also destroyed many of china's great works.

Even though I myself am a communist I really don't like Mao Zedong. Being a communist doesn't excuse him for what he did.
