That was the life of a guest who came on the show recently.  Mr. Anonymous Fred lived in China under the rule of Communist Dictator Mao Zedong.  He said life was very fun for him growing up as a kid, but he didn’t have the life of kids today.  Under Communist rule, he said everybody was equal, even with food.

    Thank you anonymous for sharing your experiences in China.
    I would challenge any of the students on this post to clean up the school every day and try to find things to entertain them.
    It is definately a new world today. PS2, PS3, PS4? etc…
    We are all very fortunate to live in a democratic society. American students would not do very well in a Communist environment.
