Red China

Page history last edited by Red China 12 years ago

     The year is 1949 and China is taking a turn for the worst. Communism has found its way into the government and has spreMao Zedongad throughout the country. Its leaders have overthrown the government and started a new. The source of this new government came from one man's mind. His name is Mao Zedong. Mao was born on Dec. 26, 1843 in a samll chinese town. He grow up with revolutions and freedom fighters proving pionts and protesting against the government. He was in school when the Revolution of 1911 started. All of these problems made him think of answers. It was at this juncture in his life when Mao's mind was attracted to Communism. Once out of school he worked as a librarian in Shanghai. During this time he thought about the government with communism. Once he finished working there he met a man named Sun Yet-Sen. At this piont Mao didn't realize he had just found a very valuable ally. Mao then realize how unstable and cruel the government was and founded the CCP( Chinese Commmunist Party). He then joined Sun Yet-Sen Nationalist group. They rallied followers and spoke in town's. Unfortunately, Sun Yat-Sen died and a man named Chaing Kai-Shek attempted to take over. War broke out and the two sides turned. Kai-Shek made extermination campskill of any CCP followers. Mao made Guerrilla Warfare tactics and slowly carved away at Kai-Shek defenses. [1]

 

     When Japan attacked and declared war on China the Nationalists and the CCP where forced to make an uneasy alliance. During the war the CCP secretely were recruitung followers and promoting communism throughout the country. After the war the idea of communsim had grown so strong that most Chinese people wanted the idea. In 1949 China officially became communist. Mao took power and quickly made an alliance with the soviets who strengthened their military. In 1959, Mao gave up the title of chairmen and lowered rank in the Chinese government. To this day, people still study his Guerrilla Warfare tactics and his famous quotes. One of these being "The poeple, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history." When he says this I think he means we as individuals control the future. That no single person is greater or less than another's. His quotes and tactics will be remembered for ever. [2]

 Sun Yet-Sen

     Now why communsim worked in China doesn't have to do with one man trying to change the government. It has to do with the poeple of the country, the economy, and the military. The people of the country were frustrated by economic and military losses. They knew their government wasn't working and decided to find another that would. Considering most of the country was farmer's in poverty no one was apposed to the idea of change. Many people wanted a Republic to run the country. Others wanted to leave it as it was. But some wanted to change it themselves. Which is actually what ended up happening. A man named Sun Yet-Sen had ideas of changing the government but needed help. So he made a quick fix alliance with the Soviets. As this progressed people liked the sound of eveyone equal and watching out for one another. By 1949, industries and civilians all wanted to change to communism. Sun Yet-Sen only made an army to fight for government. But it was the people who decided what they wanted.[3]

 

     These movements in China have shaped it into the profitable country we know today. When it's history is reviewed one of the most important topic was the year of 1949. When China became communist.

I find this article very interesting because of all the detail and support you added to it. The most interesting part was the part about the article was how one man changed the whole government of China. I find this interesting because I never thought one man could turn the whole country around.
