It's right to rebel
Explains the meaning and results of Mao Tse-tung's slogan, "It's right to rebel." Discusses the Chinese Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, which began in 1966 to root out "bourgeois reactionaries" and capitalists and to destroy the "four olds:" old thoughts, old culture, old customs, and old habits. Explores the personality cult of Mao, the challenge to the Soviet Union, and how the revolution bolstered Mao's political authority. Includes archival film footage.
