Mao's? Great Leap Forward
Is there any evidence that Mao was responsible for events that happened under the great leap forward?

Fact: both right-wingers and communists made up government staff, deng xiaoping was one of them. Both right-wingers and communists believed that the great leap forward was a good idea.

Fact: The rightwing section who were not Maoists were in charge of and heading the management of the great leap forward.

Fact: Mao for a time during the great leap forward was not in power. He was kicked out of office. Yes you read that correctly kids. Mao was still head of the communist party but not in government control. Mao however came back to power and overthrew the rightwing government and a civil conflict between right and left in China started called the cultural revolution.

The right-wingers that were in power and attempted the great leap forward later went on to be known as the people who transformed china into a capitalist nation.



So why exactly is Mao's name attached to the great leap forward in the first place?

And what are the figures of deaths from the great leap forward?

Who do you say was responsible, and why?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

The right-wingers, later known to be the ones who shifted the economy to a capitalist one were the ones in charge of implementing the great leap forward. So they would be to blame for the failure. However, since the blame from the west was put on Mao, the numbers of people dead during the great leap forward were exaggerated in the first place.
