In the section before the summery, "Resulting in poverty" sounds like it is stemmed from communism, however, one could argue that it is due to China's huge population, for example, India, which is a democracy also has a high poverty rate, but this is not due to communism. Also, in the summery Mao is the last name, try not to refer to Mao and Zedong as that is an incorrect to a political figure, such as referring Lincoln as Abraham. Zhang3r 14:49, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Nice topic. I almost chose this topic myself, but changed my mind at the last minute. There are a few grammatical errors, especially this line in your lead in: "But, it also had a side effect, communism in China has resulted in the ignorance of its people. Resulting in high poverty." In the tropes section I expected to see a little about the Proletariat and the Beourgeois, i.e., how Mao used not the working man but the farmer to pull off his revolution against the Nationalists, who could be seen as the beourgeois. I was also hoping for a few more connections to other readings. I like the connection to Return to Pleasure Island; didn't see it coming actually. But you could add other readings. For instance, in The Dispossessed the rebels tried tried a nonviolent approach and failed. Mao did the same thing, saw that it would fail, and instead armed his men. You could also link to the communist manifesto; although Mao did not follow the manifesto as expected, he still utilized many of its principles. --Mrjj0607 05:25, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Also you state that China relates to the Work trope. Please explain how it relates to this trope and what this means for both China and the other works related to this page. --Mrjj0607 05:29, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

It might be of some interest to input a bit on the idea Professor Famiglietti put out there on how Marx's argument still holds heavily on a global scale. -- Ahamid88
