Claim of 50 Countries “Infiltrating China" Incurs Sarcasm
Recently, many universities in Mainland China have hosted
the “Lecture on the Situation of National Security
Someone anonymously leaked some of the lecture’s
contents in an article which is widely spreading on the Internet.
According to the article, the lecturer not only labels the U.S.
as “the origin of all anti-China forces", but also says that
over 50 nations including North Korea, Vietnam,
Iran and others, have sent out spies to “infiltrate” China.
Commentators say a key feature of totalitarianism is the
need to “fabricate enemies". However, the CCP fabricates
enemies to maintain its regime’s stability
rather than to create war with other countries.
The anonymous article says the lecturer defines the U.S.
as “the origin of all anti-China forces"
in the initial introduction of the Lectures.
It also says ideological conflict previously dominated the
Sino-U.S. relationship, but now the competing and conflict is
for survival space, survival interests and survival patterns.
It claims the lecturer says the U.S. has transferred the national
strategic focus from anti-terrorism to containing China,
i.e. “the Strategy of Expanding to the East".
Lin Zixu, political commentator: “The CCP always loves to
fabricate enemies to divert the attention and conflicts from it.
At present the CCP faces constant troubles inside and outside.
This may well be a sort of trick by the CCP
to deceive people and try to divert
the people’s anger at the CCP to the U.S."
The lecturer is then said to talk a lot about the so called
“infiltration" of China by “spying foreign hostile forces",
and describes specific cases of “spy battles" with countries
including Taiwan, Australia, Canada, South Korea and Japan.
Unexpectedly, the list of “infiltrating" countries covers China’s
“brother" countries such as Iran, North Korea and Vietnam.
The anonymous author of the article says,
“There are no forever-friends".
The lecturer is also claimed to say the “Underground Fight"
between the CCP and Taiwan has never stopped,
and that Taiwanese spies having “infiltrated" high ranks of
the CCP, and political and military fields under the guise
of being businessmen, and that there are over 100 military
officials who have been “subverted" by them,.
Even the Xinhua News Agency, the official media of the CCP,
is claimed to have been infiltrated by the espionage.
The article claims Chinese students who study in Taiwan
are targeted by “Intelligence Staff", especially students
with political backgrounds who could be regarded as
the potential connections in Mainland China, and so on.
In addition, the lecturer is also said to list 100 religious groups
and 4000 NGOs from 50 countries who are now
undertaking espionage activities in Mainland China.
All Chinese institutions in foreign countries were claimed to
often be installed with wiretap devices, and that Vancouver’s
Chinese consulate was found with 45 wiretap devices.
One Chinese netizens surprised at the claims says:
China’s really has made the world it’s enemy!
Lin Zixu: “Even if true, then we can’t help asking a question,
why are so many countries and organizations unanimously
targeting China? If China had no CCP, would it still be so?
The CCP regime not only brings endless disasters to
Chinese people, but also many countries realize
the existence of the CCP is harmful to all humanity.
Therefore they have to watch out for China!"
The above claims of various so-called “hostile forces"
“infiltration" and “subversion" are being strongly questioned
by the public opinion.
People agree that so-called “enemies" are intentionally
fabricated by the CCP and the purpose is to divert the attention
of domestic people, produce panic
and consolidate the CCP’s regime.
The most disputable issue is that the lecturer claims that
all the mass incidents happening in Mainland China
were supported by “foreign forces".
Lin Zixu: “How did these mass incidents take place?
Weren’t people left with no choice but to take a risk?
Didn’t each incident end in the suppression of the people after
the CCP dispatched it’s many violent henchmen to take action?
Speaking of ‘foreign forces’, Marxism and the former
Russian Communist Party are the real foreign forces,
and were the dependent forces of the CCP taking power."
The anonymous author concludes:
Firstly, it is impossible for China to co-exist with the U.S.,
secondly, the espionage activities targeting China
by other countries have involved all aspects.
Lin Zixu says the CCP and the U.S. indeed can’t co-exist,
and it’s just like how a totalitarian regime can’t co-exist
with universal values such as democracy and human rights.
Regarding his novel “1984″, UK writer George Orwell has
said that the requisites of totalitarianism ruling are: Training
hatred toward the foreign, establishing a long term enemy,
instilling people with hatred, and fully utilizing
nationalism and patriotism.
He says that without hatred toward the foreign,
people won’t live in fear and would thus have no need
to seek the protection of the totalitarian regime.
Fear, lies and hatred are the only goal of totalitarian education.
