ONE GOOD ARGUMENT BELOW TO STUDY FOR EXAM
How did this event / effort by the government affect those that wanted to follow the CCP because it benefitted them to do so?

Cooperatives began in 1953 and the reason for them was to increase food output to meet the Five-Year Plan. The small farms that peasants had could not be run efficiently so joining many of these small farms into a cooperative meant that all the necessary tools and labor would be available for everyone. Even though the farmers surrendered their land and equipment to the cooperative they were still guaranteed wages for there labor. Prior to this, under the Agrarian Reform Law land had been given to peasants that didn’t have any. However some of these peasants were too old or had poor health conditions so they couldn’t farm their own land. If the cooperatives had never been put into place their land would have continued to go to waste.
