||The Cultural Revolution|
The Cultural Revolution (CR, abbreviation), it might sound unfamiliar for most people. It broke out more than thirty years ago in China, and few people know what the CR meant and why it happened.
What can be said for sure is that it made a big impact on almost all people in China including young students and it had impact even on a lot of people in the world.
This section lets you learn the some aspects of the CR such as its history and impact. I tried research as reflective as I could. I hope it will bring you a opportunity to think about what is the CR.
The CR started in Oct, 1966 and ended in Oct, 1976. Indeed, The CR was threatening China for ten years. In the beginning, destructive groups such as Red Guards and The CR Authority grasped the power, and China drove into the severe confusion. But passing the time, the people got to doubt the CR. And finally, ten-year tragedy came to an end in 1976.
Although the CR involved a lot of the people, noone knows the definite cause of the CR. There are a lot of background behind the CR. That was concerned with not only China but also the world. And they were involving each other complexly. Here, you can know a part of background of the CR.
The CR had a great impact on a lot of the peole and each field like economy. Especially, a great number of students were used as Red Guards, and they lost their own time. And the CR had impact on the other countries.
In the early of 1980s, the CR was formally considered as wrong and Gang of Four was judged on trial. During the CR, the number of the people who were persecuted to death were uncountable, and the damage on the mind of the Chinese is beyond words. We have to face the past and think of what is needed for future so as not to cause such a tragedy.
