A little Communist propaganda for you

When I was in Singapore, the Asian Civilisations Museum was having a smallish display of Chinese Communist propaganda.  China has moved on from Mao.  No longer are its former leaders worshipped as Mao was.  Indeed, Deng Xiaoping desired to have none of it.  While Mao continues to appear on the all the money, things like the Mao badges and the Little Red Books have become collectors items.  And if you have any vintage communist posters lying about, those things are worth money, something which I find terribly ironic.
