20. Why should we do your research for you?
If you are too ignorant and close minded to study things yourself, you shouldn't expect other people to do the research for you. However,one difference is that in China Buddhism is mixed with Taoism and Confucianism, where as Taoism isn't followed in Japan. As for comparing Marx to Mao that shows just how ignorant you are. Go read a few books. I can recommend some on both Marxism and Buddhism as both have influenced me over time.
