the cultural revolution
by Cole spalding
how it started
the cultural revolution started in the 1960s when Chinese communist party leader Mao Zedong came to feel that current party leadership was too far in a revisionist direction with an emphasis on expertise rather than on ideological purity.
the population before the revolution and one child policy
the red guards alliance
the red guards uniform
the uniform was a green suit with red armband almost identical to a Nazi uniform
the red guards
the red guards started in 1966 a group of middle school students in Beijing named themselves chairman Mao 's red guards Mao's support for them led to the name "red guard"being adopted by groups who were sanctioned by Mao and his supporters to "rebel against the system " all over china taunting religions and elders.
how it effected the population
china's population was affected during this time because the one child policy was at large and many homeless died of food and water many had to commit suicide in public because of the red guards many also died because of scarce resources.
how this could happen today
this could happen today because we have may dictators like Kim Jong in north Korea could make a group similar to the red guards
