The Propaganda Of China

Communist vs. Nationalist

Historical Background

    The Communist Party of China was founded in July 1, 1921 in Shanghai. It derived its ideas from ideology and politics. It took ideas from people's concentrated wills and shaped them into State Laws. Mao Zedong was the leader of all communist in China. However, China was struggling to become united once again under Nationalism by Sun Yetsen and Chiang Kai-Shek. Ultimately, the two parties got into a fight and the Nationalist party was able to drive all the Communists out of Shanghai. Then Chiang Kai-Shek planned to capture and kill Mao Zedong after chasing him down: This was called the Long March. During the Long March in 1934, Mao Zedong and his Communist party was forced outside of Shanghai all the way to the Northwest of China. However, Mao gave out posters to the peasants, the largest class in China, that made Mao look like the hero and Chiang Kai-Shek like the villain. Mao, as a brilliant leader, used "propaganda" in order to be in favor of the peasants.
