Zhang Danhong (张丹红) – Chinese Journalist

During the summer of 2008, an extraordinary outburst of institutional anti-Chinese racism occurred in modern Germany. Although not reported widely in the English-speaking press, nevertheless, it appears to have been orchestrated to cause maximum disruption to the opening of the Beijing Olympic Games. German racism, of course, is nothing new. This is a country that inflicted upon humanity one of its greatest tragedies in the form of the Nazi German holocaust, and which (through the US colony of West German), actively participated in the bringing-down of Communist East Germany and the Soviet Union. During imperialist times, Germany sent troops into China as a means to steal land that did not belong to Germany, whilst between 1898-1900, German troops ruthlessly participated in an international effort to viciously put-down the indigenous Chinese Boxer Uprising (a mass movement against Western imperialism). Fascistic German attitudes toward Socialism are not new, however, as in 1918 (whilst German troops were still fighting British troops in France), the Kaiser ordered German troops into Revolutionary Russia to fight alongside British troops, with the objective of ‘destroying’ the Socialist Regime developing there. Imperial, fascist and now ‘democratic’ Germany has a well established racist and anti-Socialist attitude that is historically clear for all to see. Little more can be expected from a country that treats former SS Officers (and ‘War Criminals’) with the utmost respect, providing such odious individuals with State-owned lavish accommodation and generous State Pensions.

Zhang Danhong, (who was 42 in 2008), was born in Beijing and studied Germanic language and literature at Beijing University and Cologne, Germany. In 1990, she became a Chinese journalist for the Chinese Department of ‘Voices of Germany’, and has been the Deputy Director of that department since 2004. As a German media expert and expert on Chinese affairs, (and since the violence of ‘smashing and robbing’ that occurred in Tibet in March of 2008), Zhang Danhong has frequently appeared at various seminars and on television programmes in Germany to make the case for China. Zhang has consistently maintained that the West should not criticize China with an ulterior attitude, but rather recognise China’s progress in Human Rights (and other key areas).

Four days before the opening of the Beijing Olympics, Zhang Danhong, reportedly said that ‘The Communist Party of China has more than any political force in the world implemented Article 3 of the Declaration of Human Rights’, referring to the Chinese Authorities pulling more than 400 million people out of poverty. Similarly, on a TV talk show in late July, Zhang reportedly said that the Chinese government had done much to protect local culture in Tibet, and criticized German Chancellor Angela Merkel for deliberately sabotaging relations with Beijing. The German media is said to have reacted strongly to Zhang’s remarks. On August 11th, German magazine Focus attacked Zhang as someone who was ‘courting’ China’s Communist Party. On August 20th, the Berliner Zeitung Newspaper quoted parliamentary representative Dieter Wiefelsputz as saying that Zhang’s performance was a ‘catastrophe’. Two days later (on the August 22nd), the same newspaper confirmed Zhang’s suspension from work. Zhang’s employer – German Voices – (without any sense of irony) stated Zhang ‘Did not uphold the values of freedom, democracy and human rights that Germany has consistently adhered to.’ Even a cursory examination of German history exposes the lie of this statement.

After the German Chancellor Angela Merkel met with the 14th Dalai Lama in the Prime Minister’s Office in 2007, a major diplomatic crisis was triggered between Germany and China, with the media in Germany initiating a racially motivated smear campaign against China. After the ‘March 14’ incident in Tibet in 2008, the German media reached fever pitch in its rhetorical war against China. Even in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in Sichuan, some of Germany’s mainstream media outlets did not stop unwarranted accusations against China. For example, “Der Spiegel” attacked the Chinese government for its earthquake relief work in Sichuan Province as ‘making the disaster a public relations initiative.’

On a talk show entitled ‘Fighting for Markets and Medals – Fear of Emerging Power in China’ which aired on TV2 in Germany, Zhang Danhong criticized German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for pursuing a confrontation with China by meeting with the 14th Dalai Lama and undermining the historically good relations between China and Germany. Zhang also praised the Chinese government for its great efforts in protecting Tibetan culture. It is understood that around 20,000 people watched this programme on the day in Germany. Zhang Danhong said she received a large number of letters from viewers after the programme was aired, agreeing with her point of view.  On the issue of Tibet, Zhang has repeatedly and outspokenly criticized the Western media for its non-factual reports. At a conference in Bonn held by the Dalai Lama’s representative in Europe – Gusang Gyinzan – Zhang on the spot questioned Gusang Gyinzan as to why it was that the 14th Dalai Lama had told the Western media that he had given-up his demand for an ‘Independent’ Tibet, whilst the so-called ‘Constitution of Tibet Government in Exile’ (written in the Tibetan language) still retained the ‘Independence’ clause? Gusang Gyinzan was shocked into silence in front of the world media.

In the meantime, Zhang Danhong stated that her suspension was due entirely to her objective reporting about China, and her refusal to accept or repeat Western lies. The Western support for the 14th Dalai Lama and the Falun Gong Cult is the real reason her approach to objective and factual reporting has been attacked in Germany as such truthful reporting is a threat to the Western misrepresentation of China and her historic developments in all aspects of progressive development since 1949.

(Other Chinese sources state that Zhang Danhong was ‘sacked’ as ‘Deputy Director’ of the Chinese Department of ‘German Voices’, but was subsequently allowed to assume her role as an ‘Editor’. This followed the December 1st, 2008 decision taken by the German Broadcasting Authority that ‘German Voices’ had done no wrong in its treatment of Zhang Danhong. However, after this ‘indicent’, Zhang Danhong continued to be the target of German racism whilst at work for her objective approach to journalism)

Communist Party of China (CPC) – Attitude Toward Religion and Spirituality

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Translator’s Note: The Communist Party of China (CPC) pursues (in the name of the people) a clear Marxist-Leninist (Maoist) path of socio-economic development, in the ongoing development of Socialism in China. It does not endorse or pursue any religious or spiritual paths, but upholds the Constitutional Right of every individual person living in China to pursue (or not to pursue) a religious or spiritual path, purely as a private matter of personal interest. Therefore, the Tibetan ethnic community living in the Autonomous Region of Tibet (and elsewhere in China), possesses a right to pursue the teachings of historical Tibetan Buddhism (or not), and the CPC considers it its duty to ensure that the material conditions are present for this Constitutional Right to be correctly applied within Socialist society. As a private, personal pursuit, religions and spiritual groups have no need for political power, or to interfere with the processes of secular politics (as the 14th Dalai Lama and his clique continuously try to do in China). As a consequence, to protect the Tibetan and Han Chinese people from the corruption of the 14th Dalai Lama, (and other similarly corrupt individuals in the service of the US), the CPC has initiated the ‘Living Buddha’ Project, whereby each practising Buddhist of advanced age (and known disciplined existence), will be assessed and officially recognised for their life-time of peaceful devotion to a non-violent path, and loyalty to Mainland China. The CPC-recognised category of ‘Living Buddha’ does not imply any recognition of ‘mysticism’ or ‘theistic’ states, but is simply the acknowledgement that some advanced Buddhist practitioners have attained a calm and peaceful mind within a disciplined body.

The Importance of Marxist Dialectical Amalysis and the Building of Chinese Socialism

‘We Will Not Tolerate Any Encroachments Upon the Territory of China!’

 

The following text is my considered (albeit ‘brief’) response to this post summerising a recent lecture held at the Communist University of South London. I quote a recent (translated) Chinese text of a speech delivered by General Secretary Xi Jinping about the CPC’s ‘certain’ attitude that ‘Socialism’ is being built in China (without a shadow of a doubt). The content of this lecture can be read here: Rediscovering Economics

Thank you Comrades! Constructive, dialectical debate is crucial for developing the mind and assessing and analysing material history. My view is that although a certain ideological direction should be maintained (to avoid revisionism and Trotskyism, etc), nevertheless, the mind must be exercised (in all directions) to decide appropriate action in the physical world (which is the progressive premise of the Communist University of South London). This is because the mind is conditioned by material events, and needs to fully cognise those events to remedy the inverted thinking associated with the Bourgeois State (which would have us at each other’s throats, whilst residing in a religious haze). Of course, Marx fully recognised that ‘consciousness’ and ‘matter’ are two-sides of the same dialectical coin (as did Lenin, Stalin and Mao, etc), and that material economics are inherently linked to the internal thought patterns such socio-economic policies produce in the mind. It may be that Marxist economics cannot be fully divorced from the human mind that a) observes the material world, and b) which formulates behavioural responses to that material world. Whatever the case, the Communist Party of China (CPC) does not doubt that it is ‘building Socialism’. This is my recent English translation of an official CPC Chinese language text that conveys a speech by General Secretary Xi Jinping and entitled: Be Vigilant Against Those who Denigrate Chinese Communism a short but poignant extract reads:

‘Prior to Marx, economists and sociologists were steeped in idealistic thinking, and defined ‘normal society’ from the perspective of pure fantasy.  Marx abandoned this fictitious ‘generalised notion of society’, and instead dedicated himself to the study of the material conditions of existential capitalist society.  In his ‘Das Kapital’ (Preface to the first edition – Volume 1) he states: ‘I want to study in this book, the capitalist mode of production, the relations of production, relations of exchange, and how these forces interact and transform one another.’  ‘The ultimate goal of this book is to reveal the economic law of motion within modern society.’  (Collected Works of Marx and Engels, Vol. 5, p. 8, 10) Marx devoted his entire life to the study of capitalism, a developmental process that was the basis for his writing of ‘Das Kapital’.  He studied a literal mountain of material evidence, and analysed in considerable detail, the functionality of the law of capitalism.  As Lenin pointed out, Marx reveals the development of capitalism in the law, his analysis ‘Is limited to production relations between members of society’, and ‘Marx did not use any of these relations of production factors, for anything other than to illustrate the problem.’ (Collected Works of Lenin topic · On dialectical and historical materialism, page 162).  With this study, Marx thoroughly clarified the relationship between capital and labour, and reveals the fundamental contradiction that exists within capitalism.’

Chen Duxiu: How Trotskyism Infiltrated China

Left: Chen Duxiu  (陈独秀) Right: Leon Trotsky

Author’s Note: Trotsky was causing trouble in Russia a long-time before the successful Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. He was a bourgeois political careerist, who associated himself with the Revolutionary left, whilst propagating distinctly ‘rightwing’ dogmas. Not only did he establish a ‘Communist Party’ in opposition to Lenin’s Bolshevik Movement years prior to the October Revolution, but it is also known that Trotsky received ample funding for his political intrigues from the International Zionist Movement (particularly from within the USA). The purpose for this bizarre blend of Revolutionary leftism and rightwing Zionist racism, appears to have been for the purpose of disrupting and over-throwing the old Czarist regime in Russia, whilst simultaneously sabotaging any Marxist-Leninist Movement that might emerge to fill the vacuum. This was probably in the service of the Zionists, who had their eyes on Russia as a ‘New Israel’. Trotsky’s deception and racism was identified by Lenin, and finally defeated in the USSR by Stalin, but it has survived in the world through its migration out of Russia, where it today masquerades as a ‘Socialist Movement’, which still refuses to condemn the racist Zionism perpetuated by the modern State of Israel. Chen Duxiu is an enigma who is suspected by a number of Chinese intellectuals to have been a ‘spy’ for Imperial Japan. This allegation stems from his time in Japan as a student, and has led many to assume that he positioned himself at key places within Chinese history, so as to cause the maximum damage and disruption to the Chinese Government and to Chinese culture. By associating himself with the early Marxist-Leninist Movement in China, he is considered one of the founders of the Communist Party of China (CPC). However, rather illogically, Chen Duxiu ideologically opposed and confronted the Soviet Union under both Lenin and Stalin, and refused to accept Mao Zedong’s Revolutionary ideas. He also refused to maintain the ‘alliance’ between the originally leftwing Kuo Ming Tang (KMT) and the CPC – and is considered historically responsible for the breaking of that alliance, and the rise of the rightwing Chiang Kai-Shek. Following Trotsky’s exile from the Soviet Union in 1929, Chen Duxiu found an outlet for his peculiar form of reactionary politics, and it is through his efforts that the ideas of Trotsky gained a foot-hold in China. The point is that Chen Duxui acted in a very ‘non-Chinese’ manner in his handling of political affairs, and this observation certainly gives credence to the allegation of him ‘spying’ for Japan. Whatever the case, when Trotsky called upon the Imperial Japanese to strive onward to victory in China – even Chen Duxiu was taken aback.  ACW 9.11.2017

Just as Leon Trotsky lead the international community of ‘Trotskyites’, Chen Duxiu (1879-1942) led the Chinese faction of this organisation. Although very much a minority movement within China, this faction was commonly known as the ‘Trotskyite Opposition’ (托洛茨基反对派 – Tuo Luo Ci Ji Fan Dui Pai). It had arisen in China during the early 1930’s in opposition to Joseph Stalin’s leadership of the Soviet Union, and acted in support of the exiled Leon Trotsky. Trotsky had been exiled from the Soviet Union in 1929 for the crime of ‘Treason’, and attempting to bring-down the USSR. His expulsion from the USSR marked the end of Trotsky’s direct power-struggle with Joseph Stalin for leadership of the Soviet Union, and the entering of a new international phase of anti-Soviet agitation, which saw Trotsky reveal his true bourgeois motivations. Whilst busy creating a ‘mirror’ organisation to oppose the legitimate International Communist Party (now administered by Stalin), in 1938 Trotsky bizarrely called for all his followers around the world to ‘co-operate’ with the forces of International Fascism – and in so doing – help destroy the Soviet Union. Although Mao Zedong was an ardent Marxist-Leninist, people like Chen Duxiu, however, defined their political position as being in opposition to the leadership of Joseph Stalin. This is why Chen Duxiu was the leader of the Chinese faction of Trotskyites, but how and why did he manage to acquire such a politically damaging and disruptive position?

Born in poverty, and later educated in Japan, Chen Duxiu was one of the key founders of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 1921 – soon being elected as its first General Secretary. However, despite referring to himself as a ‘Marxist’, and an admirer of Lenin (and the Russian Revolution), Chen Duxiu opposed the concept of ‘Internationalism’ as advocated by the ‘Communist International’ (the ‘Comintern’, or international collective of Communist Parties from around the world, administered from Moscow), and did not agree with the principle of co-operating with the Soviet Union (either under Lenin or Stalin). In 1921, as General Secretary of the CPC, Chen Duxiu refused accept large sums of money (and other support) from the Soviet Union. Chen Duxiu also disagreed with the Comintern’s policy that insisted that the CPC co-operate with the Nationalists (KMT), and due to this disruptive and regressive attitude that split this alliance, Chen Duxiu was eventually stripped of the Leadership of the CPC in 1927. In 1929, the Chinese Warlord Zhang Xueliang annexed the Chinese Eastern Railway (under orders from the Nationalist Government of China). Prior to this, the Chinese Eastern Railway had been jointly administered by the USSR and the Chinese Government. The Soviet Red Army entered north-east China and swept away all Chinese military forces before it. At this time, the CPC called upon all Chinese Communists to ‘support’ the Soviet military action against the bourgeois Nationalist Government – but Chen Duxiu refused to heed this call. Instead, he voiced his opposition, and immediately assumed the ‘Trotskyite’ position of confronting and opposing the USSR at every-turn. The Soviets, however, were successful and its military victory secured a return to the joint administration of the Chinese Eastern Railway, and Chen Duxiu was expelled from the CPC (in 1929).

Between 1929 and 1931, Chen Duxiu pursued a purely Trotskyite political path, and actively campaigned to sabotage the CPC in all its work. This effort eventually led to Chen Daxiu assisting in the founding the ‘Leftist Opposition to the Communist Party of China’ (中国共产党左派反对派 – Zhong Guo Gong Chan Dang Zuo Pai Fan Dui Pai), an act which immediately attracted the attention of the exiled Trotsky. Indeed, Chen’s organisation facilitated Trotsky’s direct and disruptive interference within China’s domestic political situation, and between 1931 and 1945 undoubtedly contributed to the 60 million casualties China suffered in her battle against fascist Imperial Japan, and the Nationalist forces of Chiang Kai-Shek. The Japanese began to militarily agitate in the Manchurian area of north-east China from 1931 onwards, and this became all-out war in 1937. As the Imperial Japanese military forces raped and pillaged their way across China, Trotsky called for all Chinese people to ‘stop resisting’ the Japanese advance, and instead facilitate its progress. Although Chen Duxiu loyally followed Trotsky, and had implemented Trotsky’s call to resist the Nationalists and the CPC in equal measure, he stopped short of fully endorsing Trotsky’s policy of leaving the Chinese people defenceless in the face of brutal Japanese violence. Whereas Mao Zedong had formulated a method of mobilising and empowering the masses of peasants in his interpretation of Marxist-Leninist Thought, Chen Duxui steadfastly refused to accept this thinking. In an unusual twist of fate, Chen Duxui was eventually arrested by the government of the Shanghai International Settlement – an Anglo-American imperialist and colonial presence in China. It is ironic to think that Chen Duxiu’s deceptive Trotskyite activities would attract the negative attraction of the imperialist West – when after WWII – Trotskyism would be fully embraced by the capitalist West as the foundation of its (false) anti-Soviet Cold War rhetoric! Chen Duxui was arrested during October 1932, and handed over to the Nationalist Authorities. He was tried for generating ‘propaganda of a treasonous nature’, for which he was found ‘guilty’ in 1933, and sentenced to 13 years imprisonment. In 1937, he was released early and made statements appearing to now support the CPC and oppose the Japanese invasion of China. However, as he failed to condemn Trotsky, many within the CPC view him as a ‘traitor’ who could not be trusted. This attitude was compounded by the rumour that Chen Duxui may have been in the paid employment of the Japanese Military. Chen Duxiu died in 1942.

Beautiful Chinese Language Calligraphy

On the 1st July, 2012, Chinese Muslims of ‘Hui’ (回) ethnic origination, who worship at the ‘Na Family Household’ (纳家户 – Na Jia Hu) Mosque (清真寺 – Qing Zhen Si), situated in the Yinchuan city area of Yongning county, (in the Ningxia Autonomous Region), gathered at the Chinese-Arabic Painting and Calligraphy Institute, to officially mark the 91st anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC). The ‘Hui’ ethnic minority is comprised of Chinese-Muslims who are the descendants of Arab merchants and tradesmen who visited China hundreds of years ago – some of whom settled in the country and married Chinese women. The Hui Muslims have always lived peacefully within China, and are loyal citizens of the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Najiahu Mosque – Yinchuan city

Chinese-Muslims (of Arab-descent) have always been associated with expert scholarship and the propagation of profound cultural activities. On this special day, with a tangible sense of gratitude and respect, these scholars produced a number of patriotic calligraphy inscriptions out of respect for the masses. A number of examples read ‘Hui and Han Live in Solidarity, and Social Harmony’, ‘Without the Communist Party, There Could Be No New China!’, ‘We Warmly Celebrate the 91st Anniversary of the Founding of the Communist Party of China!’, ‘Patriotism is Part of Our Islamic Faith!’, ‘Love Our Country – Love our Religion!’, ‘Respect the Law – Obey the Law!’, ‘Without the Leadership of the Communist Party – Our Life Today Would Not Be Prosperous!’, ‘Understand Gratitude – Propagate Gratitude!’, and ‘Study with Diligence and Be Productive’, as well as other works.

The Hui Chinese-Muslim population surrounding the Najiahu Mosque-area, were very appreciative of the efforts of their scholars associated with the Chinese-Arabic Painting and Calligraphy Institute, and were very enthusiastic about celebrating the 91st anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China. However, such outstanding loyalty and patriotism is not unknown in this area. Lu Zhongming (吕忠明) –  the Director of the Najiahu Mosque Management Committee – stated that: ‘In 2011, the local Chinese-Muslim community and scholars of the Chinese and Arabic Painting and Calligraphy Institute also celebrated the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China.’

Hui and Han Friendship and Solidarity

Yinchuan city is being developed into a ‘World Muslim City’, and possesses a ‘Chinese Hui Muslim Cultural Park’ that celebrates the history and presence of the Hui-Muslim people in China, and their unique contribution to China’s cultural and economic development. The Najiahu Mosque is situated in this joyful and multicultural area of modern China (on Han Hui Number 1 Street), whilst the local Hui and Han people are very friendly and welcoming to tourists and other inquisitive seekers.

Loyal Muslims in China

An elderly Chinese Muslim man comes to the local medical clinical for his ‘free’ weekly check-up and treatments. The Communist Party of China (CPC) supports all religious groups with free education, housing and healthcare. All the religious groups have to do is assist the CPC is building Socialism for EVERYONE – religious or not. The CPC dos not blame China’s religious people for extremism – but rather the infiltration of the motherland by ‘foreign’ influences designed specifically to disrupt the internal peace an harmony of China herself. By and large, China Muslim populations are Chinese first – Islamic second – and completely loyal to the Chinese State. This applies even to the Uighurs – who are of Turkic origination – despite the fact that a small minority (influenced by Western and Middle Eastern terrorist forces) have carried-out atrocities against the Chinese population. The Chinese population has no hatred or anger toward these terrorists – even though such misled people have caused tremendous sorrow and loss to other innocent Chinese families who never did anything wrong toward Muslims. This is because China’s Socialist education system emphasises ‘Internationalism’ over ‘nationalism’, or backward ethnic enclaves. People have the right to be different, and not to be attacked for that difference, but the problems arise when certain members of these religious groups listen to the hate-filled rhetoric of the West (which is a priori anti-Communist), and take it upon themselves to attack the very Socialist System that nurtures their belief system and protects them from external attack. Regardless of how many ‘foreign’ inspired terrorist atrocities occur in China, the West does not possess the power or influence to dislodge the CPC – which has lifted more people out of poverty than any other government in the history of the world!

Re-Enacting a Classic Chinese Poster!

aaa watermelon baby

When China freed herself from Western imperialist aggression in 1949, Mao Zedong and the Communist Party of China (CPC) embarked upon a radical transformation of Chinese society, seeking to eradicate the ignorance of feudalism and the oppression and violence associated with class oppression. This meant experimentation in many new ways of organisation agriculture and sharing food. Contrary to the lies still printed in the Western media, life improved immeasurably once the forces of Western capitalism were thrown-out of China, and the Chinese people stood-up for themselves! The above poster was generated in 1983 and is entitled ‘The Big Water Melon’ (created by Zheng Xuexin), and is designed to portray how affluent China has become, and how healthy Chinese children are today! We think our youngest daughter – Kai-Lin – looks remarkably like the baby in this picture – so we went to the supermarket and purchased a water melon for an attempted ‘re-enactment’.

Jeremy Corbyn and My Considered Position on the ‘Jade Forest’ (玉林 – Yu Lin) Dog Festival (13.6.2017)

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

In 2015, Jeremy Corbyn raised the issue of the Yulin Dog Festival in Parliament – expressing his concern for the welfare of the dogs concerned, the conditions within which they are allegedly kept, and the manner in which they are apparently killed. He called upon the Chinese government to ‘ban’ this event which sees around 10,000 to 15,000 dogs killed and eaten each year during the evening of the day of the Summer Solstice. I have written numerous times on this blog about Animal Rights in China, and have complained continuously about the Eurocentric and racist manner in which Western narratives of China – continuing the imperialist paradigm of attempting to ‘dominate’ at the point of contact – portray one-fifth of humanity (i.e. one billion people) as racially inferior, morally flawed, and culturally and politically backward. I must state from the start, that as a vegetarian I support Jeremy Corbyn’s unflinching support for Animal Rights, but would urge caution when acting as an intermediary for certain Animal Rights Groups in the West, that whilst using the veneer of animal welfare when it comes to assessing China, nevertheless pursue a thoroughly ‘racist’ paradigm in their critique of China. The race-hate aimed at China through Western Animal Rights rhetoric, is often delivered through purely ‘imaginative’ scenarios with no basis in fact. For a start, most involved in this kind of malignant ‘China watching’ do not possess the ability to read, write, or speak the Chinese language, and therefore are unable to provide any Chinese language source articles or materials to support their opinions. I want to make it clear that Jeremy Corbyn did not partake in this hyperbole, but rather very carefully read-out details (in English) that I have read in the Chinese language on the Mainland Chinese internet. In fact, as I am sure Jeremy Corbyn already knows, eating dog and cat meat has been illegal in China for a number of years – but there is a legal distinction between pets which are protected under Chinese law) – and dogs and cats that are bred to be eaten. This must be understood in a correct historical context, as the Communist Party of China has stated that it would prefer that the eating habits of feudalistic China, not be retained in an affluent, progressive and forward-looking Socialist China. As far as the Yulin Dog Festival is concerned, the Local Government of Yulin has officially stated that it is an event not supported by the CPC, and which the authorities have interrupted on numerous occasions – with the police ‘freeing’ lorry-loads of dogs into the hands of local Chinese Animal Rights activist (yes – China has ‘Animal Rights activists’) – of course, very little of this reality in China, finds its way into the West. As I am concerned about the ‘Eurocentric’ nature of much of the criticism of the Yulin Dog Festival in the West, I cannot, and do not, align myself with it, as I am well aware of its racist undertones (despite the fact that I personally believe the killing and eating of animals is wrong). The only way I could support such a criticism of the Yulin Dog Festival from a Western position, would be if all the correct Chinese cultural details were acquired and understood by the various (and concerned) Animal Rights Groups in the West, as well as including and/or consulting the Communist Party of China (CPC) and Chinese Animal Rights Groups (in China), which should be invited to contribute to the drafting of the eventual statement of criticism. As matters stand, very few Westerners understand that the CPC has drafted many Animal Rights laws, and is even considering a universal legal statement about the sanctity of animal life (this is still being debated due to its legal implications for commercially farmed meat). This has come about due to the activities of Mainland Chinese Animal Rights Groups that work quietly but determinedly behind the scenes and inaccordance with the law. Many people in the West have no idea that Chinese Buddhism (even under Communism), insists that its practitioners follow a strictly vegetarian (or vegan) diet, and that compassion toward all beings (including animals) is a primary practice. This is the motivating attitude that underlies the formation of the many Chinese Animal Rights Groups in Mainland China. These groups do not exist in ‘opposition’ to the CPC, but work in co-operation with it, slowly but surely working through the required re-forms so as to ensure that animals are treated with respect. I think it is unreasonable to demand that the CPC ‘bans’ the Yulin Dog Festival (as the CPC never sanctioned it in the first place) – whilst Animal Rights Groups in the West continuously fail to call for the ‘ban’ of 24hr slaughter factories that exist throughout the UK (as this would upset the capitalistic profit of the industrialised meat industry).

On December 12th, 2012, the Department of Electrical Engineering held a Communist Party Branch meeting on the 2nd floor, to arrange the transferral of the post of Student Communist Party Branch Assistant Secretary from the previous outgoing incumbent to the new incoming incumbent. In-attendance was the Student Communist Party Branch Secretary Wu Liu (伍柳). and Student Communist Party Branch Secretary Pan Qing (潘庆), together with other Student Communist Party Branch Members, and the outgoing Student Assistant Communist Party Branch Secretary. The meeting was held in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, as two previous Student Assistant Communist Party Branch Secretaries offered their experience to the incoming Student Assistant Communist Party Branch Secretary.  The outgoing Student Assistant Communist Party Branch Secretary made a final report summing-up the previous year’s Communist Party building activities, explaining all the successes, analysing the problems encountered, and answering all the questions raised. There was then an open discussion regarding the building of the Student Communist Party Branch, expressing different ideas and opinions, together with the clarification of current policy and direction.

Finally, the Student Communist Party Branch Secretary Wu Liu and Student Communist Party Branch Secretary Pan Qing commended the outgoing Student Communist Party Branch Assistant Secretary, and issued a letter authorising the appointment of the new Student Communist Party Branch Assistant Secretary, together with guidelines for taking-up the post. It was made clear that all Student Communist Party Members must support one another and always work together without a break in co-operation. This is how China is to be strengthened from the base up, throughout all its educational facilities.

China’s Successful One Child Policy [独生子女政策] (1979-2013)

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Author’s Note: China’s One Child Policy was part of a general Governmental initiative designed to increase health of the general population and lower infant morality rates inherited from feudal China, the corrupt Nationalist and colonial eras. It never was, nor has it ever been a policy of genocide against Chinese girls – which is a racist notion left-over from the times of Christian missionaries, who spent their time trying to convince the world that the superior Chinese culture they encountered was from the ‘devil’. This Western notion does not exist in China, but has an extra-ordinary currency in the West, even manifesting in ‘official’ medical documents, and the equally racist propaganda of antagonistic capitalist governments that exercise a blatant disregard even for the welfare of their own diasporic Chinese populations.  This One Child Policy was actually a raft of legislations advocating better sexual health, contraception, and the modernisation of marital relationships with better child-rearing techniques. This policy has contributed to the rapid rise in wealth within China, and has been so successful and popular amongst Chinese women, that they have been further empowered through it. The policy was relaxed in 2013 due to its success, but it was not abolished. It must be mentioned at this juncture that children die all the time within capitalist societies due to dysfunctional parenting, neglect, poverty, illness, murder racism and sexual abuse – with these deaths being presented as ‘natural’ and ‘inevitable’. Communist China values its girls and women and disagrees with Western racism and the capitalist inequality that kills children every single day in the capitalist world. The Chinese Communist Government rejects any and all Confucian patriarchy stemming from feudal China, and does not accept as valid any form of misogyny. The racist idea that it does, originates in the anti-China policies of the  US Government, the Taiwan Government, and of course, the despicable Epoch Times which relays anti-Chinese Western racism (in English and Chinese) through its publications. ACW 22.1.2017

Western colonialism in Asia systematically stripped countries like China and India of their own wealth and natural resources, whilst ruthlessly exploiting the people’s of Asia with a brutality that has seldom been matched in the history of the world. Of course, this European imperialism was not limited to Europe, but consisted of considerable equally destructive colonial activity in the Americas, Africa, Australia and other places. This corrosive process involved the murder and sexual abuse of indigenous men, women and children with impunity, and the psychological and physical destruction of non-European culture through the forced importation of capitalism, and Catholic and Protestant Christianity. Western men, both the over-lord middle class, and their working class lackeys, routinely took part in the sexual abuse of indigenous children and the rape of women. Needless to say, this unbridled hedonism unleashed upon essentially pre-modern and usually highly conservative cultures, led to immense psychological damage and physical injury – leading to many unwanted and unplanned pregnancies that produced mix-ethnicity children that were rejected by both cultures involved. Generally speaking, these children effectively formed a ‘third’ identity within the colonies, learning from an early age to rely only upon themselves. Another important aspect of indigenous people being used as sexual play-things by Europeans, was the transmission of terrible and highly infectious sexually transmitted diseases that spread through populations like wild-fire. As treatment for non-Europeans was not-forthcoming, many indigenous people eventually died from their infections. This led to many cultures that practised ‘equality’ between the genders being disrupted – and the men taught Western-style misogyny and patriarchy.

China, of course, is today the longest, continuous culture on planet earth. The coming Chinese New Year (28.1.2017) – the Fire Rooster – will be the Chinese Year 4715. Following the success of the Chinese Communist Revolution of 1949, the destructive imperialist presence of the West was swept away forever, and along with it all hypocritical notions of bourgeois racism and sexism. As the West had already stolen the greater part of China’s wealth, with the corrupt Chiang Kai-Shek stealing what was left and hiding it on the renegade island of Taiwan, China had to begin its new era of independence and self-sufficiency in a state of abject poverty. Thousands of years of feudal exploitation and high infant mortality rates, had led to cycles of married couples having very large families. This was designed to rapidly replace young children that died in childhood, or as young adults from drought, famine, warfare or natural disaster. Perhaps as many as five or ten children were needed for the peasants of China to cultivate the land, harvest the crops, look after the farms and care for their parents in their old age. Whenever the emperor needed soldiers there was mass conscription, or if the emperor demanded the building of some large or great project, able-bodied men had to join labour armies and travel throughout China – sometimes gone for decades. Illness could claim any off-spring without warning and life was generally hazardous. Throughout feudal China, many women were subjected to the harshest patriarchal control, which included men having up to four wives and as many concubines that they could afford. Women were essentially domestic slaves with many having their feet ‘bound’causing permanent crippling (except within the Hakka ethnicity – where women did not bind their feet and had historical equality with men).Of course, not all women had their feet bound because many were just too poor to be bothered with.

All this feudal nonsense was abolished in 1949. During the end of the Qing Dynasty and during the Nationalist era – i.e. from 1904 to 1949 – the population of China grew by just 130 million (due to warfare and famine), but as conditions dramatically improved between 1949 and 1979 (i.e. the first three decades of the People’s Republic of China), China’s population boomed by an incredible 600 million!  As people in China now felt secure and happy with the new Communist system, coupled with a drastically improved (and free) health system, more children were surviving into adulthood, and due to lack of exploitation, were enjoying much improved living conditions that encouraged successful child-rearing. The problem this caused the Chinese Government was that demand was out-stripping supply in a country that was still financially poor and in the early days of its economic reforms. This burgeoning population made conditions difficult for the relieving and eradication of poverty and the uplifting of society in general. The Four Modernizations were goals first set forth by Zhou Enlai in 1963, and enacted by Deng Xiaoping, starting in 1978, to strengthen the fields of agriculture, industry, national defence, as well as science and technology in China. Ironically, the announcement of this policy coincided with the biggest population increase ever seen in China between 1963 to 1970. The Chinese Government could not break the cycle of poverty imported into China by the European colonialists if the Chinese population continuously outgrew production.

Early Communist theorists after 1949 – such as Ma Yinchu (马寅初) – advocated that the population should be controlled with the age of marriage increased and the number of children ‘limited’. This approach was known as the doctrine of ‘moderation’ (节制 – Jie Zhi), and was designed to be a national programme of contraception, rather than a policy of sexual abstinence. The Chinese State had no intention of interfering in sexual relations, but was concerned about the level of conception. However, the so-called ‘One Child Per Female Policy’ (独生子女政策 – Du Sheng Zi Nu Zheng Cu) was multifaceted and was not limited to the concept of contraception. A high surplus population meant a continuous problem of unemployment, and the fact that material goods (such as food, clothes, and electrical), being short in supply, had to be rationed (through coupons) to people aged between 50 and 70 years old. China’s industrial-base could not be modernised (to permanently relieve poverty) with a population that was continuously living beyond its means. For wealth to be re-distributed for everyone’s benefit, it had to be first ‘generated’ and then ‘invested’ in the People’s State. Without wealth-building in this manner, China would have continued to languish in its post-imperialist poverty – particularly after 1959 and the beginning of the Sino-Soviet Split – which saw material aid from the Soviet Union diminish considerably. Another issue that was raised in 1980 during Governmental discussion and Communist Party of China debate, was the difficulty of building enough suitable homes to house everyone, and raise living standards. Although plans began to emerge in 1979 to control the rate of growth of China’s population, it took several years to finalise this plan. This is why it wasn’t until February 9, 1982, that the CPC Central Committee and State Council issued the communique entitled ‘On the Further Work of Family Planning Instructions’, confirming family planning as a basic national policy, and setting the goal that by the end of the twentieth century, a controlled population growth would remain within 1.2 billion. Article 2 of the Constitution of 1982 stipulates family planning as a key-policy, with Article 25 stating: ‘The State promotes family planning so that population growth conforms to the economic and social development plan.’, with Article 49 stating: ‘A husband and wife have the obligation to practice family planning .’ From 1982 until 2013 (when the policy was ‘relaxed’), married couples in China were advised to have a single child. In fact, Article 27 stated that a ‘Married couple that voluntarily gives birth to only one child for a lifetime, the State shall issue the “Glorious Certificate of the Parents of One Child”‘. However, this law was not applied throughout the whole of China, and many ethnic groups and former colonial areas were made ‘exempt’. This law was primarily aimed at out of control urban populations, or rural areas of unnecessarily ‘high’ birth-rates.

Furthermore, couples who had had a child already, could apply for official permission to have a second child. This particularly applied to parents of disabled children (who continued to care for their child), and to divorced couples remarrying different partners, or widowed people remarrying. Chinese nationals marrying foreigners in China were also exempt from this law. Parents who followed the law received various legal and financial benefits throughout their lives, as incentives and a form of compensation. In the rural areas, this law put an end to child brides and the sexual exploitation of young girls in China, as well as ridding China of Confucian Patriarchy, as women were legally acknowledged as ‘equal’ to men with regard to inheritance. The success of this policy was scene in the fact that families with only one child to support, generally grew more affluent in a relatively short time, and people were able to gain more ‘choice’ because of their wealth. Perhaps the greatest success of this policy was the tremendous increase in pre-natal and post-natal care of the off-spring, as parents developed a greater concern for their children. This increase in well-being resulted in more experience and care being available for the next generation, with parents having more time to themselves. As this policy achieved all its main objectives, the Chinese Government ‘relaxed’ its one child component in 2013 – but continued to maintain the idea of contraception as a means of population control and building of affluence. In October, 2015, the Communist Party of China formally announced that as the One Child Policy had achieved all its intended objectives in controlling China’s hitherto rapid population growth, married couples would now be permitted to have ‘two’ children as the norm, with others being allowed dependent upon the various qualifying criteria. As Communist China is now the strongest economy in the world, the population of China is nolonger living beyond its means, and this new affluence ensures the safety and well-being of new born children.
