It was the bad boy writer Wang Shuo who pointed out back in the nineties that while the Cultural Revolution was indeed a horrible episode, he personally had a lot of fun as a Red Guard. Free food, free travel, an official license to raise hell, every proximate authority figure terrified of you and a good time had by all of the gang.

Similar sentiments expressed, of course, by the Rwandan genocidaires, plus the point that hacking your neighbours to death is relatively physically undemanding than hoe farming, and you get more time off.
