  • Peijie WangEmail author


This chapter elaborates further on the mode of governance of revolutionary committees as movement organization and its endeavours as superstructure and apparatus for the economic base. It makes historical and comparative assessments of modes of governance on success and failure, vis-à-vis the Paris Commune and social movement organizations. Actions and trials taken by revolutionary committees in the Cultural Revolutionary era are assessed in the vicinity of material, social and intellectual life and economic, political and legal structures. Some became realities and some others were fantasies. They were the entities of the unity while being full of the conflicts of opposites, experiencing the negation of the negation constantly. Finally, the chapter projects the outlooks and explores a mode of governance in future perspectives.
