- A “democratic life meeting” of Politburo of CCP Central Committee stresses that members of Politburo must take lead in preserving the political character of Chinese Communists and keep forging ahead.
The following sentences are extracted and translated from the report by People’s Daily on December 28th.
“Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era is the contemporary Chinese Marxism. It is the Marxism of the 21st century. It is a major political task of the party members to arm themselves with this scientific theory, to use this theory to guide their practices and push for better works. Comrades of the Politburo must learn to get through this theory and make themselves real examples for the whole party”.
“Upholding General Secretary Xi Jinping’s position as the core of the CCP Central Committee and the whole Party, as well as upholding the authority of the CPC Central Committee and its centralized, unified leadership serve as the fundamental political guarantee for socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era to achieve continuous progress”.
“The fundamental reason behind the remarkable achievements of the CCP over the past nearly 100 years is that the Party always stays true to its original aspiration and founding mission, which is to seek happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation. Only by remaining true to our original aspiration will we be able to walk steady to reach the distance; only by staying true to our founding mission will we be able to open up a brighter future”.
The sad truth is that the CCP Kleptocrats never care about the Chinese people. But they must pretend that they care about the Chinese people and that they are prepared to solve their problems so that people’s living standards get better. On the contrary, the CCP Kleptocrats are thinking of using new technologies, such as AI and Big Data, to control and continue to enslave the Chinese people and make China a country the 2.0 or even 3.0 version of what was described by George Orwell in his book 1984. How sad is that!
The CCP continues to claim that their policy is for the benefits of the people and that their rule over China relies upon the support the Chinese people, however, the reality is, China is now a country controlled by CCP Kleptocrats and run by the Police who are under the direct command of those Kleptocrats. Equipped with the most advanced surveillance systems, the Police can easily monitor the dissidents, silence different voices, and efficiently crackdown down any democratic protests. Under this brutal regime, the CCP Kleptocrats can turn a blind eye to people’s demands and continue to claim that they represent the entire Chinese people, and they are working very hard to improve their living standards. Following their mindset, they usually conclude that the Chinese people are happy to “do not meddle up with our internal affairs” such as Xin Jiang, Tibet, and Hong Kong issues.
