"It is only after mature deliberation and thorough preparation that I have decided upon the Program of Revolution and defined the procedure of the revolution in three stages. The first is the period of military government; the second, the period of political tutelage; and the third, the period of constitutional government. "

Tridemism[8], more commonly referred to by its full name The Three Principles of the People, is a civically neutral (later moderately authoritarian but civically variable in modern day), economically variable (depending on time period and faction) ideology inhabiting a moderate position in between the 2 authoritarian quadrants (in its later stage). It is a Chinese ideology which was developed by Sun Yat-sen, meant to bring power and prosperity to China. It is based on three principles, those being Minzu, Minquan and Minsheng, also being the constitutional ideology of the Republic of China (Taiwan).[9].

History and Variants

Tridemism, or the Three Principles of The People, is a nationalist and republican ideology developed by Chinese revolutionary Sun Zhongshan (Sun Yat-sen) during the Xinhai (Tsinghai) Revolution, and was the theory on which the Guomindang (Kuomintang - Chinese Nationalist Party) was based. Under these principles, Sun, the temporary president of the new revolutionary state, ruled the Republic of China, the successor of the last imperial Chinese dynasty of Qing. It was designed to make China a free, happy, and prosperous nation.

The Tongmenghui was established in the US as a secret revolutionary society to overthrow Qing’s rule, expel the Manchus, restore China, establish a democratic republic, and give everyone the land they deserved. The Xinhai Revolution successfully overthrew the Qing Dynasty and established China’s first-ever democratic constitution with full civil rights and democracy. The revolution was, however, short-lived due to the failure of the successor of the Tongmenghui-the Chinese Revolutionary Party to advance north and factionalism. Sun had to resign as the President of the newly established Republic of China and go into exile, which paved the way for the rise of the opportunist Yuan Shikai and his reactionary Beiyang Clique. Yuan Shikai established a de facto absolute monarchy with Chinese theocracy and reactionary social and cultural policies.

Sun suffered several defeats after the Xinhai Revolution as reactionary warlords such as Yuan Shikai and Zhang Zuolin obstructed the democratic and progressive reforms of Sun by all possible means in the aftermath of the revolution. Sun was powerless and upset with the development. With the financial support of the USSR, Sun was again able to rise in Canton with his new political party-the Kuomintang (KMT). During the military conquest of the north by the KMT and the development of the Huangpu Military Academy, Sun developed the idea of a * political tutelage of the KMT to transform China into a modern democratic constitutional country without giving a specific timeframe to end the one-party state tutelage eventually.

But Sun also proposed a democratic constitution of five separations of powers, the first-ever in Chinese history. The constitution is based on a hybrid system with a mixture of Montesquieu’s three separation of powers of the executive, legislative, and judiciary, and two enlightened traditional Chinese institutions. The Examination Yuan is based on the Chinese traditional examination system and the Control Yuan supervisory body of the ‘Board of Public Censors' in Chinese dynasties of advisors giving Chinese emperors counsel.

Right-Wing Kuomintang

The right KMT was officially formed after the cleansing against communists and communist sympathizers in the KMT in 1927 known as the ‘Shanghai Massacre’, the start of the so-called ‘white terror’. In addition, the white terror's primary targets were those who advocated the Soviet model of government, such as Wang Ming and Mao Tse-tung in the CCP, as well as left-wing Kuomintang party members. Shanghai Massacre and subsequent anti-communist massacres across China killed 40k to 300k communist affiliated political dissidents, and marked the start of the Chinese Civil War.

The most prominent figures of Right KMT were Chiang Kai-shek, Hu Hanmin and his Western Hills Group (before his imprisonment), and Chiang Ching-kuo. The right KMT took a more anti-communist, socially conservative and authoritarian party line than the original KMT, but it continued Sun’s Georgist economic policies in Taiwan after it was defeated by the communists in Mainland China. It is also very anti-Japanese and Chinese nationalist in general.

Chiang’s government continued Northern Expedition after splitting with the communists in 1925 and unified China under the Nationalist Government in 1928 (Only nominally). A period of prosperity and modernization was experienced in China during the Nanking decade with the modernization of infrastructure and a focus on light industries such as the cotton industry, airlines, highways, and factories. China also had increased education, with schools built nationwide under nationalist rule. However, the achievements were somewhat limited as the nationalists only had limited control over the country, with warlords having de facto control over most parts of China and a raging communist rebellion. Periodical famines continued throughout China. The political tutelage stage was scheduled to end in 1937 with Sun’s ideal of constitutional democracy to be implemented. Still, the process was delayed till the 1940s due to the Sino-Japanese War.

Reactionary practices such as foot-binding, polygamy, and child marriage were strictly prohibited and enforced by the Nationalist government for social progress. But the nationalists under Chiang were worried that westernization could impede and diminish the positive aspects of Chinese traditions, such as gender roles, family values, morals, and ethics. Therefore, the nationalist regime started a New Life Movement that promotes Confucianism and traditional Chinese values. Many scholars have described this movement as Neo-Confucianist. Chiang also turned further nationalistic and grew interested in the government systems of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Kemalist Turkey. The Chinese Blue Shirt Society was founded in 1932 by Dai Li as an experiment that modeled the Black Shirts paramilitary wing of the Italian Fascist Party with a slogan of "One Doctrine, One Party, and One Leader" with strong anti-Japanese and anti-western/American sentiments. The organization was disbanded in 1938 as Chiang moved away from fascist influence due to the deterioration of the relationship between China and the Axis due to Japanese invasion of China.

The Japanese invasion was reliving for the communists strategically as the second United Front was formed between the nationalists and the communists. During the Second Sino-Japanese War, major battles were fought between the nationalists and the Japanese, with 3.8 million-10 million Chinese soldiers perishing or injured to defend China from Japan’s genocidal fascist regime. The Japanese side also suffered heavy losses, with 2.2 million casualties from the Japanese invasion forces and 1 million from the collaborators. The international community only diplomatically condemned Japan and gave China minimum financial support until the US entered the war in 1941; the nationalists caused the Yellow River Flooding to stop the Japanese military advance. This flooding caused the deaths of 400k to 900k civilians. Combined with food shortages, the Yellow River Flood caused the Henan Famine.

China’s post-war partial transition towards democracy in 1947 followed the global wave of democratic changes in previously non-aligned authoritarian countries such as Turkey, Brazil, and Greece, further shifting the KMT’s ideology from fascist-alike fervent nationalism back to Sun’s democratic socialism (at least economically) with the crackdown of capitalists in Shanghai, price controls, monetary reforms, and an expansion of workers rights. However, the nationalists failed to control hyperinflation due to war shortages, corruption and the lack of foreign economic support, which caused the economic collapse of the nationalist-ruled regions.

After the KMT retreated to Taiwan, its ideology shifted to Pro-American authoritarian capitalism, along with many dictatorial regimes such as Francoist Spain, Ilminist Korea, and Kenan Evren’s Turkey. However, Sun’s principle of Georgism was still preserved by the nationalists. Land reform was successfully implemented in Taiwan. Along with state planning policies of technocrats such as Yen Chia-kan, and Chiang Ching-Kuo's Soviet-inspired planning policies, the Gini index of Taiwan was brought down from 0.52 in the Japanese colonial era to just 0.28 during the nationalist rule, and the lower 40% income group doubled their income share to 22% of total income with the income share of the upper 20% shrunk from 61% to 39%. Taiwan also experienced a period of prosperity and rapid growth that topped in Asian four tigers, albeit with the most egalitarian developmental model due to the socialist ideology of Kuomintang.

After retreating to Taiwan, Chiang learned from his mistakes and failures in the mainland and blamed them for failing to pursue Sun Yat-sen’s ideals of Tridemism and welfarism. Chiang’s land reform more than doubled the land ownership of Taiwanese farmers. It removed the rent burdens on them, with former land owners using the government compensation to become the new capitalist class. He promoted a mixed economy of state and private ownership with economic planning. Chiang also promoted a 9-years free education and the importance of science in Taiwanese education and values. These measures generated great success with consistent and strong growth and the stabilization of inflation.[10]

Before the fall of Mainland China into communist hands, the nationalists drafted a new constitution with independent democrats and opposition parties such as CDSP (China Democratic Socialist Party) and Youth China Party. A comprehensive constitutional draft of civil rights, minority rights, and women’s rights based on Sun’s Five-Power separation proposal was established.

Most of the provisions were, however, suspended in Taiwan with martial law declared as the nationalists saw Taiwan as a temporary base to retake Mainland China. The nationalists became more brutal and dictatorial in Taiwan than in Mainland China. The nationalist regime increased press censorship and control over civil activities to counter communist infiltration, and the police state was also expanded. A notorious incident was the 228 Incident with atrocities committed by the nationalist government, the Fujian Governor Chen Yi responsible for this incident, and he was later executed for committing the atrocities after the nationalists retreated to Taiwan.The incident resulted in the deaths of 18k-28k civilians and militants, massacred or executed by the KMT regime. However, some provisions of the constitution, such as local elections, women’s rights, and parliamentary quotas, were upheld by the nationalist regime despite the martial law in place. Throughout the history of the white terror, 30k-40k were executed for their alleged ties to the Chinese communists or separatism, at least 140k were imprisoned, with many brutally tortured by the Chiangist regime.

After the death of Chiang Kai-shek in Taiwan, the Chinese nationalist KMT regime began to relax its political restrictions and to improve its civil rights and freedoms under the reforms of Chiang Ching-kuo. In 1986, the Democratic Progressive Party was formed as a real opposition party, which Chiang Ching-kuo did not try to shut down.

After the democratization of Taiwan, it began to slowly drift away from the Chiangist economic policy to embrace a more free market system, as part of the economic globalization process under the context of Neoliberalism.[11]

Revisionist Right-Wing KMT

Since the 1992 Consensus, KMT in Taiwan no longer adheres to many original principles of Tridemism due to the structural reforms of the party implemented by Lee Teng-hui, as they no longer believe in Georgism. This might be the reason why the rent in Taiwan is very high.

There are claims (usually by the Pan-Green) that modern KMT supports the CCP, with the former claiming to support Hong Kong democracy protests and Taiwan's friendly relationship with the USA, but in actuality, they do nothing except Chiang Wan-an (search his Chinese Wikipedia).

When it comes to economics, they're more aligned with the DPP, as both lean neoliberal and laissez-faire capitalist economics, although the KMT tends to be more statist and socially oriented. Revisionaries are now more focused on economic growth rather than equality.

Overall, their policies are inconsistent and constantly changing.

Left-Wing Kuomintang

After the end of World War II, the relationship between the Chinese Kuomintang and the CPC, who had allied to fight the Japanese, became increasingly tense; ultimately, both sides restarted the civil war, which World War II had interrupted.

In 1945 and 1946, members of the Kuomintang's left-wing formed the Three People's Confederation of Comrades and the China Nationalist Democratic Promotion Association in Chongqing and Guangzhou, respectively.

In November 1947, the first joint representative meeting of the Kuomintang left was held in Hong Kong; on 1 January 1948, the meeting announced the official establishment of the "Chinese Kuomintang Revolutionary Committee" (中國國民黨革命委員會), and nominated Soong Ching-ling, the widow of Sun Yat-sen, as the Honorary Chairman of the Revolutionary Committee (despite Soong Ching-ling never formally joining the commission).

To this day, it remains as one of PRC's eight "Democratic Parties" (民主黨派) and despite having seats in People's Assembly, it barely has any actual political power and often mocked as nothing but a decoration to maintain PRC's claim that they're a multi-party system and is running under a certain form of consociationalism.

Liberal Tridemism

Liberal Tridemism is an ideology that mixes Tridemism (Mainly Original Tridemism and Right-KMT) with Liberalism. It strongly opposes Dengism and the PRC, and supports liberal democracy, human rights, and civil liberties. Examples are Xin Haonian, the banned Union of Chinese Nationalists in Mainland China, and Hong Kong Pro-KMT Camp.

However, this ideology has drawn some controversies within the pan-Chinese liberal circles due to its support and defense of Chiang Kai-shek and his authoritarian Nationalist government on many occasions.

Chinese Blueshirtism

Although in its early stage, the society's most important members came from the Whampoa Military Academy and constituted elements of the KMT's Whampoa Clique, by the 1930s, its influence extended into the military and political spheres. It has influenced China's economy and society. The rise and fall of the Blue Shirt Society were rapid but obscure. They were seldom mentioned again by either the KMT or the Communist Party of China after the establishment of the People's Republic of China and the following KMT's retreat to Taiwan.

After Dai Li’s death and the defeat of the nationalists in the Chinese civil war, a few surviving members of the Blue Shirts Society fled to Taiwan. The remanent of the Blue Shirts Society became the hardliners of the KMT and were the most vocal opponents of Chiang Ching-kuo’s democratization reforms.

In recent years, Xi-era China and its pinkie fans have been accused of being fascist, implying followers of Blueshirtism persisted on the mainland and infiltrated the CCP.


民族 Mínzú (Nationalism)

Roughly translates to Civic Nationalism, this principle states that China must be independent from all Imperialist influence and oppression, which can be achieved by developing "China-nationalism" as opposed to ethnic nationalism, uniting Han, Manchus, Mongols and Tibetans, as well as Muslims in China (although this part is arguable since in practice its usually Han hegemony because Sun Yat-sen promoted the idea of Chinese minorities gradually assimilating into the Han culture within the Chinese national framework)

民權 Mínquán (Democracy)

Roughly translates to Civil Rights, this principle stated that instead of having an Emperor to rule China, all Chinese people should be his own Emperor under a democratic system, which citizens have the right to vote and influence politic via democratic means. It also added two more branches--Control Yuan and Examination Yuan -- to more commonly adapted tripartite of power separation due to China's political tradition.

民生 Mínshēng (Welfare/Socialism)

Roughly translates to "Doctrine of Livelihood", or Socialism more broadly. While Sun Yat-sen stated in a 1924 speech that "’Mínshēng’ is Socialism." and even at times calls his proposed policies Communist, he was opposed to the Marxist definitions of "class struggle" and "surplus value" as well as Russian style communism, saying "The Soviet system in Russia is not pure communism but Marxism — and Marxism is not communism; the real communism comes from Proudhon and Bakunin." Despite this, he still chose Lenin's style of party structure for the Kuomintang.

Sun Yat-sen instead defined Mínshēng as a doctrine of "people's livelihood, social existence, national economy, and group life." (ibid)

In practice it mostly focused on land distribution and monopoly issues, observing that:

We [the Chinese] are making Shanghai the industrial and commercial metropolis of Central China, and Canton the center of South China; and as a result, land values in Shanghai and Canton have multiplied tens of thousands of times within a few decades. (...) We have condemned merchants and manufacturers for their unfair means of profit-making through monopoly, but the landowners, unlike the merchants and manufacturers who have to work hard, receive tremendous profit by doing nothing. Only through the hard labor and constant effort of the mass of people can an area be developed and improved. A general rise in prices always follows a rise of land values, and in this way, the landowners sit down to enjoy the fruits of others' labor. In other words, the earnings of the mass of the people from their improvement of an area are indirectly stolen by the landowners.


Sun Yat-sen proposed to solve this with a land value tax, inspired by Henry George:

In as much as the economic progress is the labor of the people in general, it is only just that any increment in land value from such progress be shared by all in the community.

Personality and Behavior

There are few types of Tridemism, every type of Tridemism has different personality.

Original Tridemism is a Lolicon.

Left-Wing Tridemism praises Chairman Mao and Chairman Xi (Only Revisionist Left-Wing).

Orthodox Right-Wing Tridemism denies the White Terror or think it was justified.

Revisionist Right-Wing Tridemism is friendly to Dengism, and even shares an ice cream with him.

Liberal Tridemism accuses Revisionist Tridemism of being a traitor.

P.S. This is not meant to be taken seriously.


As Tridemism was separated with both left-wing factions (Especially the Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang - RCCK) and right-wing factions, Tridemism's relationship between several ideologies was mixed due to factional differences.

Further Information





  1. There is a common joke among the Taiwanese ACG community suggesting that Sun Yat-Sen was a lolicon due to his previous marriages involving underage girls (Kaoru Otsuki, aged 13 when proposed; Haru Asada, aged 15 when being Dr. Sun's concubine; and Soong Ching-ling, via grooming).
  2. Sun rejected Individualism of the West in favor of Chinese communitarian-nationalism.
  3. Sun claimed to be a socialist and rejected Marxism, yet despite this he chose Lenin's style of party structure for the KMT.
  4. One of Sun's policy changes was a transition from theocracy to a modernized secular constitutional republic.
  5. Some people believe that the Chiangist KMT was a loose alliance of warlords, landlords, and capitalists that only used political ideologies as a facade of its rule. They believe political ideologies were only used by the regime to legitimize the monopolization of the resources and the wealth to the cronies of the big four families. This view is predominant among modern Chinese historians and scholars who are sympathetic to the CCP’s historiography. Other scholars, however, believe Chiang had genuine beliefs in the revolution and the idea of “Minsheng” or socialism of Sun Yat-sen.
  6. Chiang's ROC drafed a constitution in 1946 and established a dominant-party regime in Mainland China. After the ROC retreated to Taiwan, he allowed limited democracy within the state's system of local elections. But national elections remained suspended until after the lifting of the martial law in 4 decades.
  7. Initially, Chiang Kai-Shek was a Marxist who researched several works of Karl Marx and held left-leaning views until he began to be skeptical towards the KMT-CCP co-operation after the Canton Coup.
  8. *Aka "White Terror"
  9. Chiang Kai-shek attempted to implement Georgist principles as dictator, despite having to cooperate with the landlord class in response to the instability during his reign. In 1933 he attempted to gradually implement land reform through the Chinese Institute of Land Economics, which he argued was a continuation of Sun Yat-sen's Georgism. He attempted to collect land rents and also ensure the Chinese had "equal right" to the land.
  10. Chiang Ching-kuo was deeply influenced by economic ideas of the USSR due to his Soviet education despite being a staunch anti-communist.
  11. Chiang Wei-shui has sometimes been described as the "Taiwanese Sun Yat-sen" and is greatly respected by the Taiwanese across party lines.
  12. By virtue of being associated with the KMT, which was founded on Georgist principles.
  13. Several historians, including Paul Jackson, Roger Griffin, Stanley payne, Maria Chang, and Cyprian Balmires, have classified the Blue Shirt Society as a ‘fascistic’ ultra-nationalist group rather than a ‘fascist’ one, implying an orientation towards, but not complete integration into, fascism.

  14. Lee Teng is a Taiwanese who grew up during the Japanese occupation period and was once frighted for IJA, he later joined KMT, became its Chairman and president of ROC after the death of Chiang Ching-kuo.

  4. In 1972, Yi Laoyi, associate professor of history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, wrote "Fascism in Kuomintang China: The Blue Shirts" ("Fascism in Kuomintang China: The Blue Shirts"), which was published in the spring issue of " China Quarterly " [17 ] ; Deng Wenyi and Qian Guoxun , one of the founders of Lixingshe, were "very angry" after reading it. They believed that Yi Laoyi had "insulted" the national revolutionary movement and described Lixingshe as a fascist organization as an "unwarranted fallacy" [2] . Deng Yuanzhong (son of Deng Wenyi, who was teaching at Marist College in New York , USA) was persuaded by Deng Wenyi to write a book about Lixingshe, interviewing fifty-six members of Lixingshe, Fuxingshe and insiders and the Party History Committee of the Central Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang According to archival information, in the political atmosphere of Taiwan in the 1970s, Chiang Kai-shek's acquiescence was required to proceed smoothly. In 1984, Deng Yuanzhong returned to Taiwan from the United States as a professor and published "History of the Three People's Principles Lixing Society"; in 2000, he published a 582-page revised version of "The Truth about the Core Organizations of the Kuomintang - Lixing Society, Fuxing Society and the so-called "Blue Clothes Society" Evolution and Growth" [2] . Deng Yuanzhong advocated that Lixingshe had three significances in the history of the Republic of China [2] : Lixingshe and Chiang Kai-shek: The formation of Lixingshe was in line with the needs of Chiang Kai-shek and Zhongzheng to unify the country at that time. With the strategy of "all strategies should be carried out with the cooperation of openness and secrets", it emphasized the support of Chiang Zhongzheng to become "the supreme authority and center of belief in the minds of the whole country." ”; it was disbanded in 1938 when “it grew too large and lost its function of matching darkness with light.” Lixingshe and the Kuomintang: In the 1930s, the Chinese Kuomintang's "organization was lax and its revolutionary spirit was scattered." Lixingshe "stimulated the original organization of the Kuomintang, causing them to actively rectify and compete with each other." Therefore, under the leadership of Chiang Kai-shek, Lixingshe "completed Work with ideals and strength to protect the party and save the country." Lixingshe and the process of China's modernization: Lixingshe was responsible for and participated in important movements in the 1930s, such as the Internal Peace Movement, the National Economic Construction Movement, the National Military Training Movement, and the New Life Movement, etc., which helped to enhance the national consciousness of the youth at that time and their understanding of the country. Gain an understanding of the situation. Yi Laoyi wrote a special article introducing Deng Yuanzhong's research and publication as "one of the most objective research results on the history of the Kuomintang rule that has been published in Taiwan", and it is actually "an extraordinary perspective on Chinese politics in the 1930s"; and Taiwan's academic circles also It is considered that this book is "the only "History of Lixing Society" written systematically and based on facts in the past fifty years" [2] . Lin Yutang also defended the Nationalist government. He believed that the government's censorship of foreign journalists in Chongqing was no more serious than the censorship of foreign journalists by the U.S. government. Because we are in the middle of a war, and for fear that such reports criticizing the United States will be intercepted by enemy countries and used for propaganda purposes, some things cannot be helped. Lin Yutang also pointed out that the Nationalist government was paternalistic, not fascist. The Nationalist Government was eager to guide the people's thoughts and actions, but it did not strictly control thoughts, nor did it impose a rule of force or terror. The reaction of the people under a paternalistic regime is anger or a knowing smile; while the reaction of the people under a totalitarian rule is a whisper, secret fear, frightened submission, and the whole nation sings praises of the government. Patriarchal regimes can be saved, but totalitarian regimes are incurable. If you want to see real totalitarianism, you must go to Yan'an. Lin Yutang said that if there had not been a strong national government during the War of Resistance, but a more democratic and loose government like France, China's combat capabilities might have collapsed due to domestic divisions.
