While Mao could be considered a great revolutionary, he was NOT a great Marxist. Maoism is basically Stalinism applied to China. As far as Mao thought, what does one do with such gems as "though are hearts are heavy our minds are light" or my all time favorite, by Mao, "last night I dreamed that I died and went to Marxist heaven where I was met by Lenin who asked me, `Mao, what do you know?` to which I replied, nothing". A tough act to follow, indeed.
