Mao is an interesting character. Now I don't do A level History(on a gap year to uni and last did history at GCSE and got a B) but I find history fascinating outside of the subject. Mao was a ruthless dictator who had the communist party wrapped around his finger. Be it throwing out the democratic party who fled to Taiwan, the Great Leap Forward or the Cultural Revolution, Mao demonstrated himself to be a ruthless and cunning man. He made China what it is today, for better or worse. There are quite a few good documentaries available on Mao and the rise of the communist party and China Uncensored gives a great account of the many things the communist party has done post-Mao. Chinese modern history after 1949 is very interesting

It's all a blur tbh. but i remember making it clear in the intro that it's hard to quantify how far they were actually devoted to this "revolutionary spirit" or whether they were just doing it because they felt they had to. went on to say that "in this essay" i'm going to take the actions of the red guards as evidence for how much revolutionary spirit they all had etc etc.How did you approach it?

It was hard to agree. To agree I wrote about his cult of personality with the Little Red Book and how he tied them to the Party by making them kill in its name and how many Red Guards were absorbed into the CPC after the Cultural Revolution. I also wrote about the Zhang Tieshen incident.

And then for the counter-argument:
I wrote about how the reeducation in rural areas stopped the youth from believing his propaganda. I spoke about the Confucius day of the dead festival in memory of Zhou Enlai.

Thats all I can remember

completely forgot about the red book ): but yeah the thing about giving youth born rich to be "red by action" should be a pretty good point to make.What did you say about source C? was a bit of a weird one....

Well it was written by a Red Guard wasn't it, so I just wrote that it gives us first hand evidence that that Mao was successful
