Communist revolutions create more problems than solutions, such as violated liberties that disappear each time. Besides, they are futile events, because they return to where they started after devouring their children.
They need this social engineering to control power and thus avoid the law of entropy, which assures their self-extinction through their institutional totalitarianism.
Vladimir Bukovsky, the legendary Soviet dissident, said: “The movers and shakers of current affairs have little interest in excavating the truth. Who knows what they may find? In this sense, you can start with the Communists and end up with yourself.”
Bukowski was an opposition leader who, after the fall of the Soviet Union, got hold of KGB files and wrote a book titled, ‘The Moscow Proceedings,’ revealing the workings of the Soviet regime and the purging of its disgraced leaders.
Purges in the Chinese Communist Party are not new either
The fourth wife of Mao Tse Tung, who accompanied him in the Cultural Revolution, Jiang Qing, was a transgressor born in Shandong province in March 1914 and committed suicide in May 1991 after her release from prison.
Jiang Qing was convicted in 1981 for belonging to the “Gang of Four”, a powerful organization within the Communist Party that advocated ignorance as a method of ideological cultivation.
Her fanaticism was such that after Mao died in 1976, the same red apparatus purged her from her entourage and threw her in prison, along with her three cronies.
The Chinese Communist Party suppressed Den Xiaoping
The Global Times, a libel of Maoist content, echoed Den Xiaoping’s words about Mao Tse Tung. Den said: “The Great Leader was 70% right and 30% wrong,” and this cost the future architect of the reforms in China, as he was ostracised.
Den Xiaoping experienced first-hand “revolutionary justice” when the Communist Party took it upon itself to demonize his life, and he had to flee to the countryside.
The purges against Chinese hierarchs are back
An image shook the world on October 22, 2022, during the closing of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, when Xi Jinping watched out of the corner of his eye the maneuver of one of his thugs who forced the former leader, Hu Jintao, to leave the red room.
The Guardian, the English media, asked whether it was a last-minute operation due to Hu Jintao’s objections to Xi Jinping’s third term or what the British newspaper called “a discreet high-level maneuver.”
“Engineered to avoid a planned gesture of disrespect within the political theater that accompanied the Red League congress.” said The Guardian.
In that sense, images taken by Channel News Asia show that a young official, Li Zhanshu, thought Hu Jintao was determined to boycott the end of the conclave when he prepared to brandish a mysterious document in his hand, perhaps to criticize Xi Jinping.
These videos were erased by the censors of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, and even the name of Hu Jintao’s son suffered the same fate as his father’s name. Both were erased from the list of leaders.
The truth is that Xi Jinping, when he was on the podium, sent his thugs in against Hu Jintao in front of his protégés, and they did nothing.
However, a newspaper with a strange name, The Spectator, argued that Hu Jintao had a senile crisis and was removed to avoid damage to his health. This theory is consistent with the view that Xi Jinping does not need to “overthrow” Hu Jintao, as he is a 79-year-old man overcome by madness.
This newspaper comments that Hu Jintao “looked more like a bewildered man than an angry one.”
Another seems to be the opinion of the Japanese newspaper Nikkei Asian when it assures that “Hu’s dismissal was due to the “silent resistance” to the formation of the Politburo that Xi Jinping chose in consensus with his acolytes.”
And Nikkei Asian adds: “Even though Hu was ousted, the “silent resistance” is successful because two amendments, very much desired by Xi and his clique, did not make it into the Party’s constitution.”
“Xi Jinping, comments the Japanese newspaper, failed to win the title of “People’s Leader,” but his third term in office catapulted him to stardom.
It is thought that Hu Jintao tried to denounce the cult of personality that breaks with the legacy of Den Xiaoping, and this led to the ostracism of the older man and Jang Zemin, another leader who occupied the top position in the organization.
Given so many theories, what is certain is that Den Xiaoping’s protégés were defenestrated and pushed out of the way, perhaps because of the encouragement of the “silent resistance” against the cult of personality unleashed by Xi Jinping, which compromises the legacy of the leader of the reforms in China.
