A very fine article from a respected Indian international relation scholar. A forceful response toward SCMP's ridiculuous claim.

Good communists don’t become rich

By M K Bhadrakumar

Today’s South China Morning Post (registration required) has an infinitely sad report that Mao Zedong’s granddaughter Kong Dongmei is on China’s 2013 New Fortune 500 Rich List - ranked at 242. She is the daughter of Li Min, Mao’s only surviving child with his second wife.
Kong is a product of the University of Pennsylvania and after returning to China became president of a cultural company in Beijing and ran a bookshop selling literature lauding communist culture. She also wrote 4 bestsellers on grandpa Mao. That was an ingenuous way to make money in a land of hundreds of millions of people who genuinely believe in communism — tapping into their naivety.
Many a controversial thing has been written bout Mao’s legacy but establishing a dynasty hasn’t been one of them — so far at least. We believed that Mao’s descendants never entered the world of business and lived modest obscure lives.
According to the SCMP report, Kong apparently possesses no stirling qualities as such to become a fabulously wealthy person except her parentage. Socialism with Chinese characteristics?
Alas, Mao has fallen from the high pedestal. But then, he wasn’t really at fault. What could he do if his followers who rule the roost today chose to zero in on on his sibling without his prompting from the gates of Heaven?
Of course, the powers-that-be did a smart thing. If Kong can be filthy rich, why can’t their own siblings be when they too return from American universities?  
This must be having something to do with China’s DNA. Why else is it that the followers of Ho Chi Minh (”Uncle Ho”), Joseph Stalin and Fidel Castro (or P. C. Joshi and A. K. Gopalan) have not done such terrible things?
We don’t know where Ho’s or Che Guerra’s family members are. Did they have beautiful children? Stalin’s only son was shot and killed in a Nazi concentration camp where he was a POW and the legend is that the father didn’t even do anything to save the son. Good communists simply die, their children don’t become rich.

For western media, a good commie is a dead one.

But when the red died because noble cause, they also become silent and refuse to report it. For it's a politically incorrect for them to report about red's honorable deed.

The Native Indians in America were NOT known to be communists. Yet, to the white-men then, "A only good Indian is a dead Indian"

snakeey,

Stalin's son died during war against German. Mao's son was killed in Korean war.

They died for a just cause they believed in, national liberation and patriotism. A respectable and honorable way to end life.

Just look at your country, you don't have such kind of martyr and hero, that's why your jealousy already poisoned your brain.

That's right.

They treat those preventing them to loot and plunder as obstacles that need to be terminated.

That's why China need to learn lesson from this, to upgrade arsenals before the west use it against you.
