The CCP Sinks into Its Biggest Self-Destruct Abyss
Corruption has become so rampant in the official circles of
the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and consequently the
CCP regime faces an unprecedented self destruct abyss.
After the 18th National Congress, Wang Qishan begun a high
profile anti-corruption drive after he was appointed head of
the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).
He set-up Central Inspection teams, launched an anti-corrupt
on-line program, and built a report website for the CCDI and
the Supervision Ministry in early September.
It looks like he caught some “tigers" and “flies".
Some media pointed out however that the reason why
Wang Qishan’s anti-corruption drive seems so tough is because the
crisis he faces is the biggest the CCP regime has ever encountered.
According to the article in the Hong Kong “South China
the report website of CCDI and Supervision Ministry received
more than 15,000 compliant reports since it’s launched over
20 days ago.
The report also claimed that Wang Qishan is a rare crisis
management expert, but he is dealing with the CCP’s
biggest crisis since it set up the regime.
Wang Beiji, a political commentator postulates that:
from his political background and personal characteristics,
Wang Qishan is a person who wants to do something but can’t
jump out of the rampart that was built by the CCP.
Wang Beiji:"The corruption of power is the root of
the corruption in China, including Wang Qishan himself,
and the way he uses his power is corrupt.
He knows the CCP’s situation, and the motive behind his
anti-corruption drive is saving the CCP.
Then primarily, he won’t change the corrupting power
of the CCP.
And secondly, he will play some games to win people’s support.
He does the new tricky to meet these two conflicted
and irreconcilable demands."
Wang Beiji said, the biggest obstacle that Wang Qishan faces
is the crisis that challenges the legitimacy of the CCP regime.
Wang Beiji:"That’s the reason why the CCP said that the Cultural
Revolution was a mistake and the CCP claimed to have corrected
Also, the CCP brags that it has developed the economy, and has
improved people’s living standards.
Now the CCP looks to an anti-corruption campaign to
maintain the legitimacy of its regime."
At the end of last year, Wang Qishan chaired an
anti-corruption working seminar with academics.
After the seminar, he recommended the book:
“The Old Regime and the Revolution", which was written by
Alexis de Tocqueville, to the experts who attended the seminar.
This book deeply analyses the achievements and consequences
of the French Revolution that happened in 1789,
and pointed out that the old feudal system was destroyed
by its corruption, and did not win the support of the people,
and other issues.
Wang Beiji thinks that: Wang Qishan already knows all the
basic, simple, low cost and cost-effective anti-corruption methods.
These are, amongst others, power restrictions, fair competition,
ruling parties elected by the people, rotation of power, and so on.
But he doesn’t dare touch the CCP system.
Wang Beiji:"Of course, it’s also about public opinion,
an independent judiciary, but he’s not willing to tackle this.
The real purpose of the CCP’s superficial anti-corruption drive
is a political struggle. The CCP wants its officials to be corrupted.
It’s easy to control an official if he’s corrupted.
So the CCP’s anti-corruption isn’t a real anti-corruption drive
into its system.
It’s a sham and Wang Qishan is already doomed not to change
the current corrupt regime."
Wang Beiji pointed out that Wang Qishan didn’t launch the
anti-corrupt campaign to dismantle and disintegrate the CCP.
He doesn’t like Gorbachev who launched brave reforms.
All his actions involve dealing with superficial conditions
He never tackles the root cause, and he can’t change the
Recently, the CCP initiated actions to take-out online reporters.
It arrested internet celebrities on a large-scale,
It issued a judicial interpretation on new regulations by
China’s Supreme Court and top procuratorate.
All these actions blocked the real civilian anti-corruption
The South China Morning Post reports that this political
censorship is easy to be abused by corrupted officials to attack
the people who denouncing CCP corruption online.
Zhang Jian, a Chinese social problems researcher:
“Anti-corruption is just one of CCP’s projects. By using these
so-called Central Inspection teams and the report website,
CCP suppresses on one side but open a hole in the other side.
In my eyes, allowing people to report is a method that
the CCP used to distract people’s attentions."
In recent years, we can see from the exposed corruption cases
that in the more corrupted regions, local officials
stretch the limits to maintain the status quo because they
need to maintain the environment where they can make money.
We can imagine that the CCP’s officials will clamp down further
to eliminate all the “noise" online.
Zhang Jian, the Chinese social problems researcher who
lives in U.S. questioned that Wang Qishan’s online
anti-corrupting campaign will relieve the CCP’s crisis?
