To read too many books is harmful.
The goal of the Cultural Revolution was to get rid of the "four olds" ("old customs," "old culture," "old habits," and "old ideas"). If newspapers touched on sensitive topics like these, the journalists were subject to arrests and sometimes violence. Libraries in which there were books containing "offensive literature" would often be burned down. Television was regulated by the government and its goal was to encourage the efforts of chairman Mao Zedong and the Communist Party. Radio was the same way, and played songs such as, "The Great Cultural Revolution is Indeed Good". en.wikipedia.org...
Media censorship in China goes hand in hand with the rise of the communist party in China paralleling with the rise of the revolutionary leader, Mao Zedong. After World War I ended in 1918, Mao quietly started building up forces against the nationalist government that ruled China at the time. In 1927 the nationalist party enforced the “white terror”, a long march that drove the communist party to an area known as Shaanxi Province. The reason the “white terror” occurred was to try to drive away the communists. This idea backfired as the communist party was now all in one place, allowing them to recruit followers and creates a home base. Most people who were loyal to the communist party during the nationalist sweep in China were large supporters of Mao later on. During this time, Mao used tactics such as strengthening the military and using deceiving propaganda. These popular propaganda posters helped enforce that Mao was supposedly creating a patriotic movement as a way to gain followers. Shown in the illustrations, Mao used images to promote himself as a thoughtful leader. Considering all the positive promotion Mao used, the Chinese people were unaware that the rise of Mao was also the rise of communism. Little by little their freedoms were being with held and censored. During World War II, the nationalist and communist parties of China teamed up to fight against Japan. As China was recovering from the War, Mao’s Red Army attacked the People’s Liberation Army, the Nationalist Party, in 1949. Mao took control of the big cities in China, prompting a civil war. The communist party promised to redistribute land to the citizens if they won the war, which gained the interest of most of the “common” people. Eventually the communist party won and took control of China, making Mao the new leader. Since Mao was a well-liked leader, the Chinese were oblivious to the fact that his dictatorship entailed censorship. history105.libraries.wsu.edu...
Well the Nazi's went after Jewry, ideology and "degeneracy" (as they saw fit), they didnt try to wipe out their cultural heritage.
Right. All of this from the person whom I've lost count how many times you've said "There's no such thing as SJW's, its all a myth".
The universities are a network of an overt organized Neo-Communist social engineering campaign
(Identity Politics is where the Nazi's METHODOLOGY of groupthink mind control is more relevant in the SJW Method discussion then the Commie style. Nazi's were about merging the race + ethnicity + political ideology + "World Identity"  + religious identity into the Party Identity VS. Commies more simple in merging culture + political ideology + class into the Party Identity.)
[Note that "World Identity" means Nationalism, or Globalism, where the two are interchangeable in terms of the groupthink identity effect is has on a subject.]
people are mostly influenced by strong emotions of the mob and that's exactly why modern democratic states and republics have a rigid set of checks & balances, equality protections and whatnot via constitutions.
outraged or idealistic humans do indeed behave like barbarians when in large groups and try to use intimidation and fear to pressure others to conform to their ways, many people in such mobs don't even believe in what they say or do but feel they have no choice but to conform or lie to protect themselves.
humans are easy to manipulate by powerful people because this whole mob trait and every great revolution in human history was guided by powerful people and it always starts small, what we see in america might seem minor at the moment but anyone with a proper grasp of human nature and a working survival instinct can see how it could easily lead to disaster.
