The Macquire Pocket Dictionary states that the word "revolution" is "a complete or marked change in something", this is exactly what happened during the Chinese Communist Party's rise to power and ousting of the Guomindang. The CCP overthrew the GMD and took over control. One of the main reasons the CCP won was because they had the Peasants on their side.

During the GMD rule, the Chinese peasants were poor and slow at their work. When the CCP formed, they offered to help the peasants with their crops and farm, this gained the trust of the peasants and they joined the CCP. The communists said that in their rule, everyone would be equal and that everyone was on the same level of society. The CCP managed to get the peasants to fight with them in their army to overthrow the Guomindang. The loyalty the leader of the CCP had to the people is shown in this quote, "The people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history." There were many quotes just like this one and they gained the peasants trust even more.

The CCP, were a small minority that favored the peasants of China. They wanted to give the Chinese peasants more power and more rights, instead of being overlooked the peasants actually mattered to the CCP, as shown in this quote, "people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history." This is why the Red Army that eventually rose to crush the GMD was mainly made up of peasants. The CCP did not believe that one person should own all the wealth or own all the land; they believed that everyone should have the same opportunity. This was a total contrast to the GMD and its policies, and this is why the CCP appealed so widely to the common worker, they promised immediate changes.

The GMD favored the rich population of China, this only made up around 5% of the total two billion. ... The GMD had support from such families that were not dissimilar to Jiang's, families that owned land, that had money and that owned their own businesses. These were the kind of people that the CCP wanted to get rid of and share out the wealth so that every one in China was on a level playing field, and so began a bloody battle that would not end for more than twenty years.
