  4. 4. Goal of the Cultural Revolution<br />The peasant/worker was the person who was glorified in the Cultural Revolution.<br />The intellectual/artist was considered to be dangerous.<br />The Red Guards shut down schools, and universities. They began doing raids of homes of the wealthy.<br />People thought to have special privileges were sent to hard labor camps or jail where they were often worked to death.<br />
