No, I downdinged it because I honestly don’t see a relation between someone’s writings and their body count. If Mao was able to accurately capture the mood of the populace at the time of the Chinese revolution, to really describe the human mindset then he’s a good political philosopher, regardless of what he did with that knowledge. For me… it’s like Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Books and ideas don’t kill people, people do.

His body count was there to achieve the philosophy in his book.

Unless you would argue that Mein Kampf and the like are irrelevant.
