Cultural Revolution
Year 1966 marked Zedong’s return to power. He promptly launched the Cultural Revolution and organized rallies with hundreds of thousands of young supporters. He targeted the young as they would not remember his failure of the Great Leap and subsequent famine.
To gain control, Zedong crafted a crisis situation that could be resolved by none but him. He persuaded the youth force to believe that the elite and the middle-class people were aiming to restore capitalism and thus should be removed from the society.
The Revolution caused disruption of the traditional heritage of China. The groups of young people known as the Red Guards struggled against authorities at all levels of society and even set up their own tribunals.
Schools were closed during the Cultural Revolution and the young city intellectuals were ordered to go the countryside to get “re-educated” by the peasants. The city elite performed hard manual labor and other works in the countryside.
It is believed that millions of people died during Cultural Revolution. It was in 1969 that Zedong ordered the end of Cultural Revolution. However, the Revolution actually ended after the death of Zedong.
