Mao's rule resulted in over 80 million deaths in China, Tibet & Xinjiang. But Mao is not solely to blame. CCP cadres & PLA soldiers eagerly carried out Mao's brutal policies. The CCP and the PLA should also be held accountable for their crimes against the Chinese, Tibetan & Uighur peoples. Today the Party doesn't promote socialism but only get rich quick schemes. But still the Party hangs onto power by being brutal & ruthless to any person who dares to challenge their absolute monopoly on political power.
