Revolution in China

A new wave of revolution is sweeping across the Chinese nation as Chairman Mao, the leader of the Chinese Communist Party, is encouraging the younger generations of China to rebel against old traditions. One of the driving forces of this revolution is Mao’s Little Red Book, a piece of literature which has become a staple of current Chinese thoughts and  actions. This new revolutionary fervor seems to be working positively for Mao, as he now is gaining influence among the younger generations. This seems to be counteracting Mao’s recent fall from grace after the disastrous results of the Great Leap Forward. Now, Mao has become a god among the young, the idol to whom they pledge their unending loyalty, and also to whose cause the rally around today. But what this revolution succeeds in energy, it lacks in organization. It is clear the various factions of red guards, China’s new revolutionary “policing” force, are not united together; rather, they seem to be separated groups of various individuals. This unorganized frenzy has lead to the downfall of many people who were deemed class enemies, as the great crowds of people did not waste anytime in reaffirming their guilt, and shipping them out to the country to be re-educated in the ways of true Chinese communism. The amount of sheer participation that this revolution is receiving from the masses of the people is unlike any that has been seen before. This revolution cannot be put in terms of any other revolution before it.
