That there are many differing attitudes and changing ratios lies in the nature of a large country with a huge population. Nevertheless the economic development of a country is reflected in its common behaviour and the performance of its people.

After 30 years of campaigns, this is not surprising, especially since those were usually short lived and quickly replaced by other movements that called for the exact opposite.
Instead of counting on automation and division of labour, millions had to use the most primitive of tools or even their own hands to till the land and build bridges, streets or channels. Everybody was supposed to do everything. Villagers were forced to produce their own steel in tiny little steel mills, live off their own agricultural products and build their own roads. The results were disastrous. The newly set up industry broke down. Western scholars estimate that between 20 and 30 million people starved to death because of famines partly caused by this economic insanity.
