Three Principles of the People
The Kuomintang (KMT) is a reactionary Chinese nationalist political party founded in 1912. It was formed in the context of the 1911 Chinese revolution against the Qing dynasty, and had its origins in Revive China Society, a Han nationalist organization. During the period of 1912 until the Chinese revolution in 1949, the Kuomintang led the government of mainland China, and since 1937 allied with the Communist Party of China against Japanese imperialism.
After the revolution, the Kuomintang lost favor to the Communist Party of China, and the party and its supporters fled mainland China to Taiwan in 1949.
The main founder of the Kuomintang was Sun Yat-sen, whose "Three Principles of the People" supported the overthrow of the Qing Dynasty, the abolition of imperialist privileges in China, the promotion of political democratization and the promotion of social justice.
In 1926, the Kuomintang joined forces with the Communist Party of China and launched a war against the feudal warlords. The Comintern supported the left wing of the Kuomintang but refused to merge the KMT and CPC.
The war was initially won, but Sun Yat-sen had already passed away in 1925. on April 12, 1927, Chiang Kai-shek launched a coup d'état and began arresting Communists.
After fleeing to Taiwan in 1949, the Kuomintang breakaway government declared martial law in an effort to suppress suspected communists and dissidents. During this time, suspected communists, dissidents, and even native and indigenous Taiwanese people were murdered and suppressed. 
The end of the white terror is generally considered to be when martial law was lifted, which was almost 40 years later in 1987.
