  • 1. Communist china
  • 2. Why it was important ?
    The Chinese Communist Party was important because it made thousands of people give up their life in order to support Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward. This included their homes, farm animals, jewelry, and more, and if they didn’t collaborate, they’d be considered “anti-party” which would destroy their life and reputation.
    People were forced to lie about how much goods they
    could produce or they’d be beaten. This resulted in a famine all over
    China. Zedong’s Cultural Revolution was the first power struggle
    between members of the Chinese Communist Party and the first
    struggle to eliminate enemies such as “rightists,” “intellectuals,”
    and “capital-roaders.”
