    And it seems like purging teachers first fits right in with the idea that teaching is incredibly important. If you look at Confucianism and it's virtue ethics and then transfer that over to communism then attacking teachers makes perfect sense. Those teachers couldn't be good teachers because they did not embody the communist ideal and as such they had to be purged or changed.

    Add to that the sudden power over their former teachers, who likely had a lot of power, and it starts to make a little more sense.

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
