She says Mao is not authoritarian but describes his government as authoritarian... Do you know why she does that? Because she can't say he was unpopular. Moreover, counter-revolutionaries were VERY dangerous. E.g., Fidel survived more than 600 assassination attempts against him promoted by the CIA and counter-revolution supporters.
And what about Arendt supporting apartheid in America? Wasn’t the US being racist and authoritarian? And she gave full support! She never mentioned how "democratic" capitalist countries treat poor, working people, or minorities. She didn’t mention the criminal interventions (coups and genocides) promoted by "democratic" capitalist countries as well. You wanna know why? Because she was being funded by the CIA (and the agency fully admits it).
