On November 17, 2020, the Voice of Americas Window on the World program broadcast an interview with Mr. Wei Jingsheng on Xi Jinpings article emphasizing the rule of law.


The article by Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), emphasized the importance of the rule of law in Chinese society. It was published on Monday in the 22nd issue of the flagship magazine of the CCP, Qiushi Magazine. The article is a part of General Secretary Xi Jinping's speech at the third meeting of the Central Committee for the Rule of Law on February 5 this year. Xi Jinping quoted the communiqu of the Fourth Plenary Session of the Central Committee of the 19th CCP Congress last year as saying that the rule of law is the basis for China to modernize its governance system and capabilities. So, what is the significance of Xi Jinping's public speech after more than nine months? What is the concrete manifestation of the comprehensive rule of law? Voice of America interviewed Wei Jingsheng, chairman of the Overseas Chinese Democracy Coalition, and listened to his interpretation.


During his interview with Voice of America, Mr. Wei Jingsheng emphasized: The rule of law referred to by the CCP is the rule of law used by ancient Chinese rulers to suppress the common people. Taking the warning to Dr. Li Wenliang in Wuhan as an example, it shows that the so-called rule of law by the CCP is used to restrict the human rights of the Chinese and prevent them from speaking. It is not a rule of law that democratic systems give the people rights. The so-called strengthening of the rule of law means strengthening the restriction of the rights of the common Chinese.


Wei Jingsheng also pointed out: The "blank spots in the legal system" mentioned by Xi Jinping refers to the fact that, especially after the outbreak of the Wuhan pneumonia, the CCP realized that its legal efficiency in suppressing the Chinese was not so good, and many news items were revealed. The "conflict points" mentioned by Xi Jinping mean that the Chinese resent the CCP's repression, so they resist, and it is getting worse. The common Chinese insist on the right to speak, and even go to court to sue the authorities. This is the "point of conflict."


Regarding what Xi Jinping said, We must take advantage of the trend and follow it, firmly safeguarding the international order and international system with the purposes and principles of the UN Charter as the core, and contribute Chinese wisdom and Chinese solutions to the reform and construction of the global governance system, Wei Jingsheng pointed out that this sentence did speak of the CCPs ambition to change international organizations, including the United Nations, and to establish a new world order for the CCP. For example, the CCPs efforts in the UN Human Rights Council are to change peoples concerns about human rights and turn a blind eye to human rights violations in China.


Regarding the Comprehensive Construction of a New Socialist Country and a New Journey towards the Second Centenary Goal road map formulated for China by the CCPs Central Committee, including the establishment of China as a prosperous, powerful, democratic, culturally advanced and harmonious "modern" socialist country by 2049, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Peoples Republic of China, Wei Jingsheng pointed out that all these laudatory goals are just the CCP's fooling of the people. The CCP has been talking about these for decades. It is questionable whether the CCP can continue its dictatorship until 2049. And its so-called elections are also false. For the Chinese to enjoy democracy, they must first end the one-party dictatorship, while everything else is related to democracy. Yet, when China does not have a democratic system, the Chinese people do not even have freedom of speech, safeguarding of human rights, and the right to choose. How can there be true "one person, one vote democracy"? !


Regarding the U.S. general election this year, Wei Jingsheng pointed out that a series of U.S. policies are undergoing tremendous changes. There is a debate about this change, which is reflected in this election. When the debate is fierce, the election becomes fierce. But the American democratic system has more than 200 years of history and experience, and it will come out of the woods. This also shows that the American democratic system needs to be improved and reformed. But this system has its ability to improve and modify. Wei Jingsheng believes that everyone will use their own wisdom and eventually there will be a proper solution. After all, although the democratic system has made many restrictions and controls on the weaknesses of human nature, it is not perfect after all. Despite so, the democratic system of the USA is still much better than the CCP's one-party dictatorship in China.
