China, one of the biggest, most modern, most industrialized countries. Many historical revolutions happened in China, and one of the most influential revolutions is the Cultural revolution that happened between 1966 and 1976. In the ten years, the Chinese experienced both the brightest, most glorious period of their country. Also, the darkest, and the biggest famine of all time. During this period, people were killed, traditional culture faded away, as well architecture and items were destroyed.
What I have learned from this revolution unit is how power can make people thirsty, and with more than one person as the leader in one country or community can start a endless competetion. Until all the components die or “Disappear” from the party. Eventually, the ones who actually suffers is the citizens. In this case it was the ones who worked all day long in order to help construct a industrialized country that Mao wanted. The ones who contributed their whole life in this revolution simply because what the propaganda imply ” All Chinese, All people should followe Chairman Mao’s ideas! A country with a fully communism society is an actuall paradise, and we should all go against the horrible, harmful capitalism which creates human-hell.” In conclusion, this cultrual revolution is a complete failure, even though it did influence China’s monderization speed, but by looking at the revolution it’s self, it failed ( I think No body actually earned benefits from this revolution) how ever, it was truely worth it, as a Chinese, being able to have such a great opportunity to dig deeply into our country’s history was splendid!
