Although communist China and America have different cultures, a Chinese Cultural Revolution survivor said that when the Maoist Cultural Revolution in China and what is happening in today’s America are put in a broader perspective, one can see commonalities between the two.

The real goal of the woke revolution sweeping America today is “to change the [American] culture and to destroy everything [of] the past: the traditional value, the traditional family, the traditional institutions,” said Xi Van Fleet, who grew up in China during the Cultural Revolution.

The Cultural Revolution, which began in China in 1966 and spanned the final decade of Mao’s life, aimed at destroying the so-called “four olds”—old customs, old culture, old habits, and old ideas—of China.
They have to be destroyed so Maoism can replace them, Ms. Van Fleet said in an interview on Epoch TV’s “American Thought Leaders” program on October 28.

What is going on in America today is aimed at destroying “everything that is traditional, and replace with the woke ideology, which is Marxist ideology, Ms. Van Fleet pointed out.

“Only when they destroy everything, burned it down to the ground, can they build back–not better, but worse–so that they can take power.”

Commonalities

Mark Twain said: “History never repeats itself, but it does often rhyme.”

China and America are different, their cultures are different, and the time is different, so “it’s a mistake to compare it as if it’s apple to apple–no–but it rhymes, Ms. Van Fleet explained, citing Mark Twain.

Among the cultural changes in America that parallel the Chinese Cultural Revolution, Ms. Van Fleet highlighted infusing American education with indoctrination, rewriting history, applying the Marxist archetype of oppressors and oppressed to divide American society based on race or sex, and the process of normalizing violence.

If people want to counter the cultural changes taking place in the country, they need to understand them first, Ms. Van Fleet said. “You can’t fight back something that you don’t understand.”
