When was that? Maybe this teacher could just change his statement just a little to say “We want to return to a time when the skies were blue, the water was clear and when people [THOUGHT they] existed harmoniously with one another.”

Mao idealists tend to forget that when things seemed peaceful for some of the citizens, that was often at the expense of the peace and harmony of other citizens.

Your misleading headline for this article makes it sound as if this is a widespread trend, but the article only cites one teacher in one school. WTF?

The western nations are beginning a new propaganda war against China and Asia. The 3rd plenum said they would continue hard to be the leading world economy which insinuates the American Dollar will no longer be the world reserve currency. The US will stop at nothing to begin a new arms race and cold war with China. We can’t beat them economically, so we’ll use our mighty military once again. These type of articles will garner public support. We will see many, many more over the next year or two.
