Source 8: Anon (1961) American Cartoon on the Great Leap Forward

Description

This cartoon parodies the disastrous policy of the collectivisation of agriculture and the idea of a state-owned economy by suggesting the only personal entitlement peasants are allowed in the People's Republic is their own private coffin as victims of famine.
