Communist Official’s Faith in an Abbot
A shoehorn added extra publicity to former Nanjing Mayor,
It was given by an abbot from Nanjing.
The shoehorn was said to help one’s career.
The next day, Oct. 17, 2013, Ji was put under investigation
by the central disciplinary organ.
Similar gimmicks are widely seen in the Communist regime.
Even party mouthpiece People’s Daily commented
on this weird phenomenon.
Let’s take a look.
Ji Jianye’s shoehorn is not alone in Communist officialdom.
There are also minor gadgets such as stones, wood bows, bronze
mirrors and major activities such as relocating graves, building
bridges, irrigation to Baiyangdian Lake, heightening the Tiananmen
Square flagpole, removing the hill from the Temple of Heaven.
It may sound absurd, but they are present with a corrupt official
and an abbot, or so-called master.
It is a known fact that Communist officials
“believe in no Marxism–Leninism but the master."
Mao Zedong was said to be completely into feng shui,
even though he claimed to be an atheist
and initiated the Cultural Revolution to destroy
traditional Chinese culture.
Many of those sacked corrupt officials had worshiped
a master of their own for safeguarding their political career.
For example, a master had promised former Railways Minister
Liu Zhijun a “stone of patron" to prevent him from downfall;
former Tai’an Municipal Party Secretary, Hu Jianxue, diverted
a section of highway for the construction of a bridge.
Hu was told by a master that his career needed a “bridge"
for good connection.
Former Sichuan Provincial Party Deputy Secretary,
Li Chuncheng, spent tens of millions of yuan on a Taoist rite
for his ancestral graveyard.
People’s Daily criticized that this “trust in master" phenomenon
is ubiquitous and even observed in regions remote
and poverty stricken, and lectured it’s the discipline of the party
and rule of law that officials should worship.
Why is the master obeyed rather than the discipline and rule?
Commentator Lan Su: “None of the party members or cadres
would follow the so-called discipline or rule
because Communism, the foundation of the discipline
and rule, has completely gone bankrupt.
Every Chinese knows the reason by heart,
but no one can openly recognize it."
Lan Su indicates that since faith in Communism is gone,
officials and cadres have turned to traditional beliefs.
However, none of the corrupt officials understand the true
meaning of belief due to the destruction of traditional Chinese
culture during the Cultural Revolution.
Therefore, the corrupt officials worship heavenly beings
and conduct corrupt deeds at the same time.
China issue researcher Zhang Jian: “The majority of officials
Why? It is like the old saying, “A clear conscience fears
not false accusation."
Their misconduct has worried them.
That’s why they rely on these superstitious tricks
to seek security and fortune."
The bankruptcy of Communist ideology has caused both vested
interest groups and the ordinary Chinese choose to renounce
the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
According to the data collected by the Epoch Times website,
more than 190 million Chinese have renounced the CCP
and its associate organizations as of Feb. 4.
This wave of quitting the CCP started after 2004
when the Epoch Times issued the editorial series,
“The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party".
More than 100,000 of Chinese are continuing
to quit the CCP on a daily basis.
Last year, the CCP claimed there were about 86.68 million
Communist Party members, and 89.49 million Communist Youth
League members by the end of 2013.
Many of the announcements from those who renounced
the CCP showed how they were forced to be part of the data.
On behalf of a total of 6 people, Liu Guang stated that
the unit party secretary had to take a fake photo of people
who actively joined the membership
to fulfill a task from a superior.
Unwillingly and in disgust, the photo was taken
but the 6 people collectively renounced the party afterwards.
Wu Xiaoxiao from Chongqing City described that she had to
spend five yuan to apply for membership in order to
receive her diploma.
She immediately renounced the Communist Youth League
after her diploma was received.
Jia Zi is someone who shared a similar situation.
She refused to join the CCP organizations, but the work
place regulated everyone to be a member of the Communist
Reluctantly, she filled the form and paid the 60 yuan
But she renounced it after the application was submitted.
Zhang Jian: “I reckon that no one is willing to get close
to such an evil party.
For the sake of livelihood, people are forced
to deal with this evil organization."
Zhang Jian is sympathetic to the situation the mainlanders
are facing and hopes that they will keep a distance
from the bankrupt CCP.
