(文化大革命 or文革). A movement promoted by the CCP between 1966 and 1976 to liquidate what remained of traditional Chinese culture, society and religion, regarded as incompatible with Communism. All religions were prohibited, including those in the red market. As the CCP itself later admitted, the movement caused incommensurable suffering to the Chinese population and ended in disgrace and failure.
