Why did Mao launch the Cultural Revolution?
Poor planning, inefficient industries, lack of work incentive,crop failures and famine.Hoping to revive the Marxist revolution he had begun.
B. To extend the economic success of the five-year plan to agriculture as well, Marx created large communes where the Chinese peasants lived in strictly controlled communities.
In response to Maos call to revive the Marxist revolution (which dreamed of a society where peasants and workers were equal and intellectuals were considered dangerous) Chinese students formed militia units called Red Guards who targeted and reported on citizens they considered dangerous to the Communist ideology.Reasons for the Communists SuccessMao won support of peasantsMao won support of womenMaos army used guerilla war tacticsMany saw Nationalist government as corruptMany felt that the Nationalists allowed foreigners to dominate China
