75727 - Great errors

Ν. Lygeros

The Great Leap Forward from 1958 to 1962 was such a great disaster that it implied the Great Chinese Famine which was the largest famine in human history.
Tens of millions people died in China
without the implication of any enemy.
China did this alone.
And it was the achievement of the Chinese Communist Party.
But it wasn’t sufficient for the control of people.
Mao did not change anything; on the contrary he continued his great errors.
He formed the Socialist Education Movement in 1963 in order to remove reactionary elements within the bureaucracy of the Party.
But after that he produced an even greater catastrophe to his country with his Cultural Revolution with a duration of ten years.
It was done to preserve China’s communism by purging capitalist and traditional elements from Chinese society.
The result was horror.
Denunciation rallies.
Violent struggles.
Red Guards.
Little Red Book.
