Communist China - Not the China you know

Is Communist China’s tyrannical governance a successor of Eastern imperialism or the modern revival of western totalitarianism?

Huntington, a renowned American political scientist, once said that the clash of eastern and western civilizations will be the theme of modern history. However, Huntington was wrong.

Since the Renaissance, history records a simple fact: Westerners were the first to obtain great power through scientific reasoning. Western culture then quickly flourished and dictated the ideological fate of mankind. At the same time, eastern culture was declining and slowly becoming marginalized towards the point of extinction. Thus, western culture still dominates modern day ideologies. The topic of cultural clashes is not one between the east and the west. Eastern culture has not recovered from its historical fall. It does not have the capability to be a subject of present day conflict. Today’s cultural conflicts center on western culture’s contradiction and devaluation of itself. They also center on the clash between western ideas of freedom, democracy, human rights, the rule of law and the West’s historical tradition of totalitarianism. The former describes the politics of free nations, the later describes Communist China’s tyrannical governance.

In essence, the history of mankind goes beyond natural history and instead is a history of willpower. Thus, when studying any section in the history of mankind, we must measure it by spiritual values. Only then can we accurately understand the essence of history’s logic. If we evaluate using pre-described measures, it is not difficult to discover that Communist China’s totalitarian governance has nothing to do with the Chinese culture. It does not succeed from a thousand-plus years of Chinese imperialism. China’s tyrannical governance completely comes from an outside political regime. Its ideology is western. Before you question my accuracy, read the following facts:

The philosophical foundations of Communist China argue for materialism and historical materialism. The former is a product of mixing ancient Greek Materialism and Sophism; the later is directly affected by Hegel’s Science of Logic. The philosophy behind China’s political science is classism. It has many similarities to the class system in Plato’s Utopia. Party members of the CCP see themselves as an advanced group of people just as the clergymen of the middle ages in Europe saw themselves as holy. Communist China’s politics and economics evolved from the classical economics of England. Communism is just an elaboration on Utopian ideas. Even CCP induction ceremonies are western.  

The preamble of the Communist China’s constitution states that all Chinese, one fifth of the human population, must accept the principles of a German Jew, Karl Marx. China will use violence to maintain that Marxism is the ultimate truth. Thus, the Chinese people are not only a slave to China’s Communist politics, but also a slave of German Marxism. The CCP has made Marxism the national religion and education of China. This means that the alliance of religion and iron-fist regimes from Europe’s middle ages have been resurrected in the east.

Since the day it was founded, China’s totalitarian government has forced the Chinese to accept Marxism through domestic violence. Charged by the tyrannical regime for being anti-Marxist, freedom seeking Chinese are subject to censorship and political persecution. Each time the blade of censorship and political persecution comes down, it falls upon the western values of freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law. It also slashes the values of traditional Chinese culture. The ideology behind Communist China’s dictatorship comes from a foreign regime. For over half a century, the totalitarian regime increasingly destroyed Chinese culture like never before, pushing it towards the point of extinction. During this time China became a Marxist political and cultural colony. Culturally speaking, China has already perished, and that is a more grievous loss than the loss of land. This is because the Chinese culture and spirit has died. Moreover, all of the Chinese people have become political slaves to this autocratic governance.  

Communist China’s authoritarian government is unworthy of representing China. It is guilty of massacres, enslavement, expropriation of basic human rights, cultural and ethnic annihilation and other such unforgivable acts against humanity. Roughly eight million Chinese have died of unnatural causes under the Communist rule. The totalitarian government is the most expansive and corrupt organization in history. The millions of corrupt officials leave an exhausting economic burden to the general public. The dictatorship rules through the secret police and mafia. It allows people’s moral values to rot away in the midst of materialism. However, it does not allow them any political choice or freedom of speech.


Conquest is the nature of totalitarian regimes. Since accumulating massive economic power, the Chinese Communist regime has confidently reestablished its desire to spread across the globe. Its first step is to crush Taiwan’s democratic system. The reasoning for expansion is similar to that behind the Crusades a thousand years ago- to terminate opposing beliefs and to rule mankind with a single ultimate truth. The only difference is that the Crusades were launched by bishops and clergymen, while the Communist expansion is launched by CCP party members and government officials; the Catholic decree was written on Crusaders’ flags, while Communist ideals are written on the dictator’s banners.
The reason I have first chosen to explain the nature of this tyrannical rule is to tell the world and Taiwan where this threat against freedom is coming from. To win a war, one must first accurately understand the source of the threat.

I hope that revealing the nature of Communist China’s totalitarian rule will help those who are fighting to safe guard Taiwan’s freedom and dignity understand one thing: the threat against Taiwan is not coming from Chinese culture or the billions of commoners. Chinese culture has already been destroyed to the point of extinction; it cannot pose a threat to anyone. The people in mainland China are slaves to Communist rule. They are unable to choose their own destiny, let alone threaten others politically. Communist China’s tyrannical rule is the root of the crisis in Taiwan. It does not represent the Chinese culture and it does not qualify to stand for the Chinese people. The reason being, that although those in power are Chinese on the outside, their souls are possessed by the already passed German Jew Marx. Although they call themselves China, their cultural values are rooted in the European totalitarian traditions from the Middle Ages.

Like Taiwan, the general public in mainland China and Chinese culture would both benefit from being free. Emancipation from tyrannical rule, liberation from Marxism, and the rebuilding of a culture based on diversity – this is the required topic for mainland China’s destiny in the next era. Resisting and triumphing over Communist China’s ploys to take over, control, and destroy Taiwan’s democratic system – this is the topic for Taiwan’s destiny in the next era.

Communist China’s economic reform- not the victory of free capitalism

Over the past 20 years, sinologists and China experts have in fact understood very little about China. However, their continuous theories help spread a ridiculous lie: that economic reform is helping to lead China into a free capitalist market economy. What is more unfortunate is the fact that the international community uses this fabrication as the basis to determine how the tyrannical government is developing.

Actually, all you need is a bit of background in law and politics to reveal the above falsehood. One of the indispensible aspects of a free capitalist market economy is that each legal subject holds equal legal rights. Equal rights ensure fairness in the capitalist market economy. However, it is impossible for equal legal rights to truly exist in the Chinese dictatorship.

Communist China’s iron rule is a single-party system that employs domestic terrorism to disenfranchise its citizens. Thus, they remove any possibility of the legal system ever benefiting the people. The autocracy uses violence to monopolize the rights of the people and set up a legal system that only benefits the upper class. This makes it an autocratic perverted constitution. All autocracies share a common nature, to affirm supremacy and deny equal rights. Therefore, under China’s dictatorship, the foundation for a capitalist market economy, equal rights, does not even exist.  

Over the past 20 plus years, Communist China’s so-called economic reform has evolved into a freak economic system. We can call this freak system the CCP elite market economy. Its main feature is: using corrupt government power as an axis, bribery as a lubricant, then by market forces, society’s wealth is rapidly channeled straight into the pockets of the elite class and profiteers.

A market economy that is manipulated by a corrupt autocracy has nothing to do with fair competition. Under this kind of economic system, competition occurs in bribing and boot-licking. It is also a competition for personal gain between those in power. However, despite the dictatorship’s unjust economic system, economic growth has surged. This happened because of the following three reasons:

1. According to a high ranking official in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in 2005, the actual population in China was one billion 530 million people. However, Chinese officials still claim that there are only one billion 300 million people today. The officials are unwilling to reveal the true number, as they want to revel in and prove that their family planning policies have been effective. Moreover, the officials want to withhold the real number of China’s population in order to avoid worldwide suspicion and panic.

A classified survey conducted by the Ministry of Civil Services states that out of 1.53 billion people, 1.25 billion populate the rural areas. Of those people, roughly 500 million people are “extra labor” that even limited fields can not accommodate. This expansive and tragic group comprises China’s migrant labor. The economic miracle of the CCP elite market economy is built on the slave-like labor of hundreds of millions of migrant laborers.

The inhumane labor conditions harken to those of the middle ages. Migrant laborers work extremely long hours for less than a dollar and fifty cents a day. They are denied health insurance and retirement plans. Many of them are female or child laborers. In an era that celebrates human rights, such conditions that historically occurred only during the darkest times are occurring now, under the label of “migrant labor”. Although there are hundreds of millions of laborers, they have been unable to come together and demand rights to protect themselves. This is because the totalitarian Chinese constitution denies the right to organize labor unions or go on strike. Faced with powerful and corrupt investors, the individual migrant laborer can only helplessly be pushed around. The migrant laborers live and die like weeds. The exorbitant wealth produced by their slave-like labor is the basis of a life of paradise for the elite and the profiteers. It is also the foundation of Communist China’s economic miracle.

2. The second reason that China’s elite market system has produced enormous economic growth is over-exploitation of natural resources.

In 1989, Communist China sent a hundred thousand troops into its own capital and opened fire on its own people. Such acts against humanity revealed the savage and cruel nature of the dictatorship and all political morale collapsed. Government officials attempted to reestablish moral foundations through rapid economic development. However, a totalitarian regime that starts its economic development strategy on political gain is naturally selfish and only looking for quick success. Such a regime will also undoubtedly over-exploit natural resources.  

A report from the Ministry of Land and Resources to the Political Bureau states that: due to over-mining and over-grazing in Inner Mongolia, the rate of desertification will rapidly increase in the regions from Xilin Gol League to Yeke Juu League and Alxa League. Within the next ten years, the area north of The Great Wall will become the world’s largest desert. Due to serious pollution of the Yellow River, the number of days that the lower reaches are dry will increase yearly from the average of 2.5 months. The freshwater ecosystems of Yangtze River will likely collapse in the next ten years. Excluding the Tibetan Plateau, 69% of the lakes in China are so seriously polluted that they have already become dead lakes, uninhabitable for fish and shrimp. Excluding Lhasa, the level of air pollution in every Chinese city has increased compared to ten years ago. Along the coast of the Bo Hai Sea, 70% of the surface water within five nautical miles is dead.  

The Chinese government rapidly developed the economy in order to maintain its totalitarian regime. At the same time, they also swiftly polluted China to the brink of being too toxic for people to inhabit. The tragic environmental destruction of such an expansive area in East Asia will surely become a deadly threat to ecosystems around the world.  

3. The third reason for the economic miracle of China’s elite market economy is the huge influx of investors eager to make high profits.

With hundreds of millions of migrant workers laboring like slaves and abundant natural resources to exploit, investors have exploited profiteering opportunities like never before. International investors, including the Taiwanese, can not resist the temptation even though their prosperity is built by trampling upon human morals and destroying the environment. Investors choose profit over their moral conscience. They choose short term personal benefits over upholding basic human rights. Large investors should be clever, yet their choices reveal the most foolish side of mankind: short-sightedness and greed. Investors do not hesitate to sell their reason and morals to the devil in exchange for fortune.

There are two prophecies on how Communist China’s elite market economy will evolve. One side believes that the Chinese economy will keep growing rapidly. The other side continuously warns us that the Chinese economy is about to crash.

For a serious discussion, we can certainly scratch out the first prophecy. Only a foolish servant or someone eager to pass on Communist China’s lies would believe that an economy built on inhumane and irrational foundations would last. On the other hand, there is still no proof that the Chinese economy is about to falter. This is because proud and confident “sinologists,” “economists,” and “China experts” are lost in an illusion. They use economic standards from the free democratic world and international standards to investigate and hypothesize on China’s economy. However, the elite market runs on its own rules and logic from behind Communist China’s iron curtain. In this case, it is only natural that the prophet is mocked by his own prophecy.

Studying the fate of a totalitarian regime purely from an economic perspective does not allow for accurate conclusions. There is never a simple economic crisis under an authoritarian regime because dictatorships are political animals. The irrational and inhumane economic and social plans of the 1950s such as the “People’s Commune” and “The Great Leap Forward” triggered widespread famine that resulted in nearly 40 million deaths. Even then, no “economic collapse” was acknowledged.

Crisis stems from politics

Crisis in the totalitarian order, including economic collapse, stems from politics. More specifically, crisis in the totalitarian order is decided by politics. Looking back on history, we discover that there are two ways in which crisis erupts in Communist China: First is chaos sparked by internal political power struggles. A prime example would be the “Cultural Revolution.” Second is economic stress sparking social upheaval and intensifying the conflicts in the political party. In this case, internal political struggle breaks out into nation-wide chaos. A prime example of this is the 6.4 Incident in 1989. Over the past 20 years, the economic growth pushed by tyrannical rule has also been continuously fueling political outbreak. The widening income gap and the untamable corruption of government officials are both predictable products of China’s elite market economy. Moreover, both are lighting the fuse for Communist China’s political catastrophe.

Because the Chinese population is enormous, when foreigners come to China, for whatever reason, they see flourishing cities. However, beneath the prosperity lies an extreme urban-rural income gap incomparable in history. Wang Huning was a chief hired writer during both Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao’s time in office. In 2000, he presided over a research team investigating the widening gap between rich and poor. The conclusion of the report states: Large and middle size cities are the political, cultural, and economic centers of the modern society. The population residing in cities is 14% of the whole population in China. As long as that urban 14 % remains stable, then China will not break out in social chaos. As the upper class has fervently accumulated wealth, this report provides the foundation for a basic theory: Intentionally maintain city prosperity in order to maintain social stability.   

However, a prosperity made by sacrificing the basic rights of over a billion rural Chinese in order to satisfy the 200 million in the cities cannot last. In recent years, tens of thousands of citizens have fought for basic human rights in incidents that protest the widening income gap and Wang Huning’s false theory. Behind today’s flourishing cities, the anger of over a billion people against injustice is spreading like wild fire. History will soon prove that it is impossible for a society built on unjust foundations to last.   

Power can manipulate economic gain, but economic gains will eat away at power. This is another law of the CCP elite market economy. There is not a single official in the Chinese government who is not corrupt. Taking bribes is part of normal, everyday life. Widespread corruption poses a deadly threat to the totalitarian regime. Officials who have lost all political ideals exercise their power for personal gain and not for the good of the country. At the critical moment, when faced with a serious challenge, officials will make political choices that only benefit themselves. They will not fight to the death for the existence of their Communist government. During the collapse of the Soviet Union, out of the millions of Soviet officials, very few stood their ground to defend the Soviet state. This is history’s lesson. Later chapters of this book will discuss the topic of corruption as a political threat in detail.    

Communist China’s elite market economy will lead to social chaos and political upheaval because it is an inhumane, irrational, and unjust system. The widening gap between rich and poor and the wide spread corruption both point to a political crisis for the tyrannical regime. Everyone is simply waiting for history to provide an opportunity. The Communist officials wait in a dream and the general public waits in anger.

It is at this moment, that I hear Taiwan’s president Ma Yingjeou declare to the people of Taiwan that Communist China’s economic system will bring great economic development to Taiwan. At the same time, I can already hear history laughing at Ma Yingjeou.

The political effects of Communist China’s economic development - Walking towards democracy, or strengthening the autocracy?

The idea that economic development would push Communist China to relinquish autocratic governance has long been popular and trendy. However, this is false. This theory was originally fabricated by Communist China’s hired writers. It was then embraced by sinologists and China experts who made a living off researching China. Also, fraudulent Chinese intellectuals advocating freedom celebrated this idea as they hoped to seek amnesty within China. They all declared this theory an unquestionable truth. Politicians around the world choose to believe this theory fabricated by hired writers. They use it to defend their political ethics while they sacrifice their principles on democracy and human rights in order to make deals with China. Certain officials in the KMT use the above theory to rationalize and justify the KMT fawning over the Chinese dictatorship.

Socrates once said that, “Knowledge is virtue.” However, knowledge often becomes the servant to tyranny, and thus knowledge can also fall from virtue. We must again face the degeneration of knowledge: There are countless influential scholars in China and abroad who have complex ties with the autocratic government. They labor endlessly and invent theory after theory on why China will give up its autocracy as the economy grows. Selected below are a few important examples.

One theory is “The Middle Class Theory.” It reasons that economic growth will create a booming middle class population. As the middle class strengthens, it will call for a democratic government, and the Chinese government will give in to this plea. A second theory is the “Privatization Theory” which states that as the Chinese economic reforms lead to private ownership, it will undoubtedly lead to a democratic government. A third theory is the “Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Per Capita Theory” which says that once the GDP per capita reaches a certain number then the government will evolve towards a democracy.

I will discuss the errors in these false theories.

The first error in the “Middle Class Theory” is its misinterpretation of historical events. It is true that towards the end of the Middle Ages, it was the middle class who first demanded freedom, democracy, and human rights from the government. However, it was a revolution that brought the people democracy not a tyrant willingly abandoning his autocratic ways. Although the revolutions in Europe and North America varied in levels of intensity, historically speaking, evolving from an autocracy to a democracy has been through revolution. There is no historical evidence that Communist China will relinquish their rule and give into the demands of the middle class.

Crooked government powers have created Communist China’s elite market economy. In a country completely controlled by the autocracy, investors are just slaves to corruption. To no surprise, the CCP elite market economy has resulted in an extremely unbalanced distribution of both wealth and power. On one extreme is the upper class and businessmen. On the other extreme is the rest of the general population. Thus, the creation of a strong and booming middle class is purely an illusion. Under such circumstances, the middle class of businessmen that is created will not seek democracy. This is because it relies on totalitarian governance in order to survive.

The first error in the “Privatization Theory” is its logic. “Democracy must be founded in private ownership” is an accurate statement. However, it does not follow that “private ownership will certainly bring about democracy.” This conclusion goes against the formal logic that Aristotle established thousands of years ago. Throughout most of the history of mankind, autocracies and private property have coexisted. Only recently have democracy and privatization emerged together; although perhaps in ancient Greece, a premature form of democracy and privatization coexisted. Looking back at history, we can see that the claim “privatization will lead to democracy” is merely a false theory made up by a scholar patronizing the Chinese autocracy.

The government of the People’s Republic of China implemented land reforms and the people’s commune. Private farmland became state owned or property of the commune. After passing the “Socialist Transformation of Capitalist Industries and Commerce” act, all private capital was robbed through politics and became state-owned. Moreover, the CCP, which is constitutionally guaranteed power as the single ruling party, has taken away people’s right of political choice. Thus, the entire country is technically “state-owned” or in “collective ownership.” In actuality, the country is collectively privately owned by government officials. This makes Chinese leadership the largest asset and land owners in the world. They own all of the land and fortune in China.    

The curtain has closed on the tragedies of last century’s “Cultural Revolution”. The scam of Communist China’s idealism has cracked. Even most Chinese officials have lost faith in the Chinese political ideals.

All totalitarian regimes employ temptation and the façade of idealism to maintain their political cohesion. After idealism fails, they can only rely on bribes and temptation. Thus, Deng Xiaoping, a politician born in Sichuan with family ties to the triads and thus perhaps especially sensitive to human greed, decided to implement “economic reforms.” One of the main goals for these economic reforms was to confiscate all private property for the state. In reality, this “state-owned” property became collectively privately owned by the Chinese officials and upper class. Chinese officials thus directly experienced the tremendous material gains of the authoritarian regime and in turn strengthened the political cohesion of the autocracy.

Filthy rich

Deng Xiaoping’s call saying: “some areas can get rich before others” manifested itself in the upper class quickly becoming filthy rich as they thrived on these so called “economic reforms” and “state-ownerships.” With the upper class prospered profiteering businesses and millions of hired writers. Under these reforms, a tiny portion of the people are privileged enough to seize most of the wealth, but the general public gains nothing. The reality in China shows that autocratic rule allows those in power to “legally rob” society’s wealth. In a society where people are denied their political freedom and basic human rights, “privatization” will never provide wealth and fair opportunities to most of the general society. It will only bring about an unjust distribution of wealth and relative or even absolute poverty. Economic reforms and privatization that is manipulated by totalitarian governance do not lead to democracy. On the contrary, the main political goals of such reforms are to strengthen the absolute regime, maintain the privileges of the upper class, and uphold supporting laws and economic systems.

The absurdity of the “Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Per Capita Theory” is even more obvious. It is not a theory based on any specific time, location, or object. It is merely a theory concluded by similarities in numbers. This in itself is an academic joke. The difference between China and the countries in the last wave that embraced democracy is that those countries were originally authoritarian. China on the other hand, is the Bastille of modern totalitarianism. How can you get an accurate conclusion by measuring authoritarian and totalitarian political change in the same way? Many people claim that China has given up Marxist-Leninist totalitarian rule because it implemented economic reforms. This claim is a false. Philosophically and politically, Communist China is not backing down but firmly defending their Marxist-Leninist regime. The only change is how they economically maintain their iron rule. Before, they implemented structured economic plans, now they use the CCP elite market economy.  

Communist China’s tyrannical government allows its people the freedom to manically pursue material pleasures, the freedom to lose all morals, and the freedom to live extravagant and promiscuous life styles. However, they do not allow the Chinese the freedom of speech, thought, religion, or political choice. Politically and psychologically, the Chinese government has not loosened its controls. Instead, it is enforcing the most extreme of totalitarian control through the secret police.

China’s economic reforms have not and will not lead to a democracy because the government’s political goals behind these reforms are in fact to strengthen the totalitarian rule, not attain democracy. Thus, the economic reforms have only further empowered the tyrannical regime.

Using the CCP elite market economy as an economic foundation, Communist China has built a dark alliance between corruption, bribery and treachery. However, the ever-widening gap between rich and poor is violently destabilizing the society. Chinese officials must rely more and more on domestic violence and fabrications to maintain the autocratic rule. Because they are so dependent on violence, they must empower the military, police forces, and government officials. Also being dependent on government fabrications, they must tighten controls on the press, educational institutes, publishers, research institutes, and the people’s freedom of speech. Thus, the economic reforms are actually increasing the extremes of tyranny.

The only way to end this totalitarian rule is for the people to start a massive uprising without warning, as occurred in the fall of the Soviet Union. That is the only way a Chinese democracy can find a place in history.


The world is on the brink of a political crisis like never before. However, few people realize it is even coming. Taiwan is facing a serious political disaster, one that will likely cost their most precious political and spiritual asset, their freedom. Yet many indifferent Taiwanese politicians choose not to see the fact that Taiwan is in danger of being enslaved by a tyrannical rule. In chapter one, I brought to light the nature of the Chinese autocracy in an attempt to show the cause of the impending political crisis upon mankind and Taiwan. It is only by understanding the truth, that we can triumph over the calamity. Due to complex emotional ties, many Taiwanese are unwilling to seriously pay attention to China and its totalitarian rule. However, fate has forced Taiwan into a dead end, and the Taiwanese can not run away from the subject they have been hiding from. I have explained how tyrannical rule betrayed its own country with foreign rule, how Chinese culture died with it, and China politically and spiritually became a Marxist colony in order to differentiate between the autocracy and the Chinese people and culture. A full understanding of this differentiation and the ability to discern the real cause of disaster is extremely important to winning the upcoming war.

I have illustrated why Chinese economic reforms only strengthen the totalitarian regime and do not lead to fair competition, a free capitalist economy, or a democracy to show the discrepancy between that what we know and the falsehoods spread by Taiwanese politician Ma Yingjeou. Ma depicts the Chinese tyrants as the hope of the Taiwanese economy, when in reality, they are the cause of the coming political disaster.

Lastly, I hope to leave readers with a question to themselves after reading chapter one. How will Communist China’s totalitarian government, a criminal organization that has committed countless acts against humanity and the most expansive and corrupt organization in history, affect mankind and Taiwan? In the following chapters, I will attempt to answer this question. I hope readers will deliberate over it as well.
