Let's move away from Peru and go to Kampuchea under Pol Pot. Did the
Khymer Rouge policy towards re-educating urban residents, professionals,
and intellectuals not look to the experience of Mao's policy during the
Cultural Revolution for inspiration?

Isn't it not only a question of what some Marxists do to seize power, but
what they do also to hold state power?
