Mao Would Dig the Juggalos

Chairman Mao and the Insane Clown Posse share something. Both of them understood the power of outsiders, the vast swaths of people that society leaves out. Mao harnessed the power of China’s peasants, who despite being the majority of the population, were scorned and ridiculed by China’s political elite (especially Nationalist Generalisio Chiang Kai-Shek). The ICP created the Juggalos in order to bring together a large group of Americans living in the forgotten cracks of the American Dream. ICP got rich and Mao got a country. Maybe you should consider the power of the scorned too.
