Quotations from Chairman Zhu 朱語錄


Quotations from Chairman Zhu

Quotations from Chairman Zhu, or 朱語錄 , is a collection of political observations by free market anarchist Bevin Chu, in the manner of Ambrose Bierce, Oscar Wilde, and H.L. Mencken.

Bevin Chu’s name, 朱炳文 , is transliterated as “Zhu Bingwen” according to the Hanyu Pinyin system used on the Chinese mainland.

Quotations from Chairman Zhu is obviously a satirical jab at the late, unlamented Communist dictator Mao Zedong, whose Quotations from Chairman Mao, or 毛語錄 , was the diametric opposite of Chu’s free market anarchism.

Quotations from Chairman Zhu will be updated whenever the Muse inspires.
