One of his first ideas was “The Great Leap Forward,” which a lot of historians considered as a failure because its initial goals were never met. The Chinese society was losing faith in Mao, and not loyal to him. In desperate needs, Mao came up with the “Cultural Revolution” or also known was “The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution”. Mao main goal was to turn all people to follow the idea of communism, but not in the way like Russia did. Even though a huge amount of people died and harmed the future image of China.
More murderous than Hitler, more powerful than Stalin, in the battle of the Communist leaders Mao Zedong trumps all. Born into a comfortable peasant family, Mao would rise up to become China’s great leader. After leading the communists away from Kuomintang rule, he set out to modernize China, but the results of this audacious move were horrific. He rebounded from his failures time and again, and used his influence to eliminate his enemies and to purge China of its old ways. Mao saw a brighter future for China, but it was not within his grasp; his Cultural Revolution was not as successful as he had wanted it to be.
The Opium War not only embarrassed China, but as a consequence, it also had a lot of dramatic social and economic effects as well. China’s view of the Western world along with the relationship changed drastically. Due to the war, there were a lot of internal battles and struggles as well as economic downfall especially in Canton where a lot of trading was focused on prior to the war. This left a lot of people in China without jobs, which resulted in China completely losing all power and control that it had to the Western nations. This allowed these nations to gain power over them, which was not foreseen prior to the war.
During the “Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution” of China, countless Chinese bourgeoisie were persecuted with almost no logical reason. His powerful and stern leadership turned into an iron fist. Mao in the long run did improve China, but many of his actions were unnecessary and actually hindered the progress of his
Mao Zedong held this attitude centuries later. It is a shame that lessons from the past were not learned, so that the suffering of the people could have been avoided in the 20th century. While the policies of the Emperors and Mao caused great hardship, Deng has succeeded in making some people wealthy, however the responsibility for the wealth imbalance of China today lies with him.
Later on, however, the Supreme Court decided that several of Roosevelt’s laws were unconstitutional and they were subsequently vetoed. Moreover, after Roosevelt’s victory in the 1936 election, Roosevelt grew so confident that he felt he could replace members of the Supreme Court with people chosen by himself. However, this did no go down well with the American public and as a result many people began to oppose Roosevelt and his policies. Secondly, the New Deal meant that the rich were taxed more in order to pay for the schemes to help the poor. Many business leaders also opposed Roosevelt’s support for trade unions and employee rights.
The pollution is hurting the GDP and the people of China. Factories that once caused the pollution are leaving to countries with even more relaxed regulations. This has forced China to pushed China to invest in other sectors which can be a risky gamble. China is losing its allure and is now faced with new task of adapting. If China cannot adapt then there will be no more growth, and the “Golden Years” will be for nothing.

The rapid capitalistic expansion happening in China is always hindered by the politicians with distortions of bureaucracy. The demands of the economy are in conflict with the demands of politics, this political interference is the result of one of Mao's famous slogans: "Put politics in command!" The use of this policy in Hong Kong would not be well received. Thus Hong Kong's prospering industry would feel uncertain about the Communist rule, and what form it would take in the future. Since the beginning of this century there has been a constant power struggle in China.
Finally, the peasants were extorted of all their riches, leading them to the mentality that they had nothing to lose in the rebellion. Now, these taxes that were paid to the government were supposed to be used for the modernisation and development of China. However, due to incompetency of leadership in the Qing Government, these funds were spent on constructing lavish and extravagant palaces.
