Mao put forward the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution to prevent the capitalist roaders from influencing Chinese to reverse the proletarian dictatorship.
Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Concerning the GPCR (Aug. 8, 1966) defines the struggle in this way:
“Although the bourgeoisie has been overthrown, it is still trying to use the old ideas, culture, customs and habits of the exploiting classes to corrupt the masses, capture their minds and endeavor to stage a come-back. The proletariat must do just the opposite: it must meet head-on every challenge of the bourgeoisie in the ideological field and use the new ideas, culture, customs and habits of the proletariat to change the mental outlook of the whole of society. At present, our objective is to struggle against and crush those persons in authority who are taking the capitalist road, to criticize and repudiate the reactionary bourgeois academic “authorities” and the ideology of the bourgeoisie and all other exploiting classes and to transform education, literature and art and all other parts of the superstructure that do not correspond to the socialist economic base, so as to facilitate the consolidation and development of the socialist system.”

Following this event, and also during, many Chinese elite such as Deng Xiao Ping began to see the inability for china to “go along the old collectivist, stand-alone path.” and saw that the Chinese economy was collapsing. This experience showed Deng Xiao Ping that China was unable to function without the global economy. This created a need for people such as Deng Xiao Ping to begin to up rise. Mao countered this capitalist agenda with the Great Proletarian Revolution.
During the Cultural Revolution towards the early to mid 1970s, a group of radical lefist’s known as the gang of four began to dominate China through their control of...
