I think you hit the nail right on the head here.
I've not read the edited newer version, but I did read that book quite some time ago. As I recall it was an exercise in highlighting all the negative
and completely ignoring anything positive. Yes it is propaganda meant to condition our children and the copy I read, I bought used and it had a stamp
from the school it came from where it was used a textbook.
It's simple really. You want to control everything, you start by controlling the schools (young impressionable minds) and the media. History is filled
with examples. You teach children what to think, rather than how to think for themselves. You indoctrinate, rather than educate.
There is a point where the far left and far right meet and it's at that point you get a product like Mao produced, where independent thought is
replaced by blind loyalty and party is placed above all else. Any opposition is silenced and those not in lockstep are ostracized from society and
isolated to silence them.
