The key was make contact with the Revolutionary Party itself.” At this point in the novel Ah-Q had declared his loyalty to the Revolutionary Party, without ever making contact with any Party leadership and with no way to do so. Similarly, Chinese rebels operated in the name of the Revolutionary Alliance without receiving direction from Sun Yat-sen, the party founder. Sun Yat-sen had no control over the members of his party, or the revolution itself. Holcombe states, “Dr. Sun Yat-sen, meanwhile, was in Colorado at the time this unplanned revolution erupted and read about it in the news while traveling by train from Denver to Kansas City.” This impromptu rebellion undermined the goals of Sun Yat-sen.
