      misconception (which I had also shared) that "thought reform" is a de light reserved exclusively for "foreigners." This is by no means the case. It is instead something which the people of China, and particularly Chinese intellectuals, have themselves undergone—on the whole, enthusiastically rather than reluctantly.   Being a political drifter, however, was no longer an option. Under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), mass mobilization and political campaigns became a national way of life and no one was allowed to be a bystander, least of all the intellectuals, a favorite target in Mao’s periodic thought-reform campaigns.
