65 Causes of CR Ideology: Banish China of the four olds : Old thoughts, old culture, old customs, old habits. Never explicitly formulized and the nature of the enemy is constantly changing. Political tensions between Mao s faction and CCP bureaucracy. Left and right split. In 1966, Mao sets up Central Cultural Revolution Group. Radical students urged to rise up against rightists at universities.

66 Public Shaming

67 Phases of revolution Mao forms the Red Guards. Learn revolution by making revolution. 1967, Red Guard is urged to smash the bureaucracy. Moves from intellectuals and well off to party elite. Totalitarianism? Red Guards ordered to be disbanded by PLA. Civil war breaks out. Left wing. PLA assumes control. Red Guards sent down to villages as way of purification (12million-120 million) : Power struggle, Mao is ailing, Gang of Four.

68 Legacy of Cultural Revolution Denounced by Deng. Problem of memory persists. Nostalgia. CR and state capitalism?
