Xi Jinping: Absolute Negation of Mao Zedong’s Thought
Will Lead to Great Chaos
If Mao Zedong had been absolutely negative, would the
socialism of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) still exist?
Reportedly, the CCP leader Xi Jinping said that
totally negating Mao Zedong would lead to
the CCP’s demise and to great chaos in China.
Political analysts refute the suggestion that Mao Zedong
himself was one of the sources that created chaos in China.
Lets see their comments.
On May 7, China’s media published an article,
authored by Qi Biao, an expert in CCP history.
Qi said that at an internal seminar in January,
Xi Jinping raised “two points that cannot be negated”.
That is, “History after the reform & opening up cannot
be used to negate the period before it; and vice versa.”
According to Qi, Xi specifically mentioned Deng Xiaoping’s
resolutely safeguarding Mao Zedong’s thought.
Xi said that “If Mao had been completely negated (by Deng),
would the CCP and its socialist system still exist?
They wouldn’t, and that would trigger great chaos.”
Critic Wang Beiji comments that Xi’s two points serve to
protect the CCP’s privileged group. Showing that
Xi intends to stay on the track of the CCP’s dictatorship.
This policy can retain the Maoist force, and can also use
the liberal faction to promote economic growth.
Xi has chosen a middle way, trying to keep both:
reform & opening-up, and the CCP dictatorship.
Yet today’s China is still deeply
mired in chaos, says Wang.
Wang Beiji: “Mao Zedong himself is one of
the root causes for China’s great chaos.
Another cause is Marxist-Leninist communist ideology,
the basis of Mao’s thought, and the CCP’s philosophy.
That’s why under the CCP’s rule,
China’s has always been filled with chaos.
Since 1949, the CCP has been killing people
by launching continuous political movements.
Under its class-struggle ideology, China had always
been in turmoil right up until 1980.”
Liu Yinquan, chair of China Social Democratic Party,
says that under the reign of Mao Zedong,
the CCP ultra-leftist faction fiercely suppressed
land owners, rich farmers, intellectuals, and dissidents.
This was a disaster for China, and for the world.
Liu thinks that Xi should negate Mao’s retrograde thought.
Liu Yinquan: “In order to maintain the CCP’s one-party rule,
he fears that denying Mao’s history of governance
will trigger the CCP’s collapse.
So the CCP authorities’ remarks on this period
have mainly been positive.
But this cannot help China shake off the burden
of history and move towards the civilized world.
I think Xi should think again and
face up to the real problem.”
The book, Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party,
points out that after the CCP took power in 1949,
China began its darkest period in history.
Enormous numbers of people have died
during the CCP’s decades long holocaust.
Killing is the most essential means
by which it maintains its rule.
Over half of the Chinese people have
suffered under the CCP’s constant persecution.
The estimated unnatural deaths of Chinese people
since the CCP seized power reached 60-80 million,
this figure is significantly higher than
the death toll of the two World Wars.
Wang Beiji remarks that the last 30 years of the CCP’s reform
and opening up has also been a turbulent period for China.
There has been nationwide mass petitioning, and petitioners
have been exiled abroad as opponents of the regime.
Wang Beiji: “Since the 1989 pro-democracy protest,
China has seen much turbulence.
In the 1990s, the CCP regime targeted faith based groups,
including millions of Falun Gong practitioners.
Meanwhile, it has kept on repressing fellow compatriots
in Tibet, Xinjiang and Mongolia, as well as rights activists.
If China had begun its democratization in 1989,
and had purged corrupt officials,
China would have had an orderly
legal system and society by now.”
Wang Beiji indicates that the correct way for
China now is to negate Mao Zedong’s thought,
to abandon communism and to end the CCP’s rule.
