The roaring 60s & the Chinese Cultural Revolution…

On August 19th of 1966, a massive wave of communist ideology imbued and nearly hysterical young Chinese students, launched the Cultural Revolution under the direction of the old Chairman Moo Zedung.

It was meant to be a fight for social justice, and a fight for the rights of the many people still oppressed in China.

And since it was widely believed that the ‘patriarchal system’ in China had been created by the 1% and held down women, minorities, and the working class — the students cried out for a revolutionary change, and consequentially launched the infamous Chinese Cultural Revolution.

All the young students put a red bandana around their arm or around their head, with written slogans, and went into the streets to stand in solidarity with the oppressed and called for a change of all the old ideas that they called the FOUR OLDS.

The Four Olds were: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas.The movement was supported by the Chinese media.

Rioting followed with mass demonstrations and looting by the students, and mass arrests and torture of the targeted “intellectual elites” ensued.

Also many old statues were torn down.

Buddhist monasteries were looters and burned with all the BUDDHIST ARTIFACTS BURNED AND DESECRATED.

Tens of thousands of monks and hundreds of thousands of nuns were hung and many more found themselves in re-education camps for the rest of their lives.

Chinese architecture was destroyed.

Classical literature and Chinese paintings were torn apart and burned.

Temples were desecrated.

The Cemetery of Confucius was attacked.

The corpse of the 76th-generation Duke Yansheng was removed from its grave and hung from a tree.

Wealthy homes were attacked and destroyed.

Many families’ long-kept genealogy books were burned to ashes.

All of history, in short, was to be removed and replaced.

This was the central meaning of Cultural Revolution: That China was going to destroy every trace of its bourgeois (privileged) past and replace it with a new culture built on the principles of Maoism and Marxism.

Communist leaders like President Liu Shaoqi were taken out of power and replaced with men Mao believed were not critical of his reign.

Public leaders who were considered to be oppressive were tried by angry mobs and vigilantes.

Three days later, August 22, 1966, a central directive was issued to stop police intervention.

The police were disbanded in the city and the students formed a community solution called the RED GUARD.

The RED GUARDS policed the communities and punished anyone who did not agree with their ideas.

Even people that supported the movement, but had bad thoughts (“wrong think”) could be punished.

Though many Christians supported the movement in the beginning, they quickly became the number one target of the RED GUARDS and public trials were held to condemn them to death.

Many of those that were on board with the cause of the rebellion, in the beginning, saw that it was not really what they had signed up for, but by then it was too late.

The power that the Red Guard wanted had already been given.

Yours,

PS:

More people died during the cultural revolution in China than any war, famine, or natural disaster in the history of man.

During the years of the Chinese Cultural Revolution in the 1960s, an estimated total of 30 to 50 million people were killed.
