Ten years before the US Civil War, a little revolt broke out in China that was commanded by a 37-year-old former school teacher who believed himself to be a demon-slaying younger brother to Jesus Christ. By the time Hong Xiuquan was done, 30 million people were killed and the world would never be the same.
