Also Talking about Conspiracy Theories

-- Wei Jingsheng

 

 

The inauguration of the 46th president of the United States is over, and everything should be back to normal.It is time to talk about other issues that everyone is concerned about, including a term that has gained popularity recently, conspiracy theory.The people who use this term most are people from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), including those Western scholars and politicians who defend the CCP.This has become a routine method of the CCP's external propaganda.

 

In fact, the one that has the most conspiracies is the CCP itself, which talks about other people's conspiracy theories.A conspiracy theory that the CCP has recently made very successful is that the overseas democracy movement has collapsed, with Trumpís fans and Bidenís fans fighting and hating each other like passersby.Not only did the CCPís secret agents from all walks of life clamor so, but even some active anti-communist friends who are pursuing democracy also echoed in anxiety, which made Xi Jinping in Beijing very happy.

 

Recently, a well-known sinologist, who has supported the democratic movement for many years, published an academic article.In it he said that the overseas Chinese democracy movement has almost collapsed because of its support for and opposition to Trump.And he also named so and so and said so and so, with solid evidence that sounds worrisome.

 

But he didn't note that the Americans who support Trump and Americans who support Biden also had a struggle, even to the point of violently attacking the US Capitol.Did the United States collapse?It seems not.The first message of the president's inauguration was: unity, unity, and unity.why?Because they are all Americans, and they all live under the roof of the United States -- no matter how many different opinions they have, it would not overwhelm their common interests and basic values.

 

The overseas Chinese democracy movement is the same.Under the premise of common goals and basic values, no matter how big the differences are, they still have to unite under the banner of democracy and freedom to oppose communism.Quarrels are normal, and unity is needed.Although most of the members of the overseas Chinese democracy movement are already citizens of the countries they live in, their concern and dedication to Chinese democracy and freedom are the common characteristics of this group of people.There is no issue of collapse or not.

 

Then why are there so many people who claim to be anti-communist and support democracy, yelling at each other on Internet, and treating each other like enemies, and even don't want to share the same sky?Let us not forget one important thing, that is, the Communist regime grooms a large number of Internet agents.To make it bluntly, these agents get paid for what they are doing, for engaging in conspiracies on the Internet.It is one of their tasks and the key point is to belittle and split the overseas democracy movement.

 

These CCP agents have also kept pace with the times.They know that their real face of Communist agents is despised and would be beaten by most people all the time.So they pretend to speak for democracy in an effort to achieve a much better effect of deception.Especially for ordinary people who usually don't care about politics, they are even more deceptive.Not only have they deceived the Chinese, but even foreign experts.In fact, American sinology is nothing more than a career, with no more need to know China better than the average American.As long as they know a little bit more than the average American, they can get a position in a university.So it does not require a high level effort for the CCPís conspiracy theory to deceive them.

 

The social psychology of the Chinese people in modern times has always been to look for a savior.Is President Trump the great savior of the Chinese?It seems not.His greatest achievement was to change the appeasement policy of the West and start to crack down on the blood-sucking trade of the CCP.But looking at the rising deficit in the US trade with China, we can see that his hesitant trade war is like a big thunder with little rain, and did not achieve the goal.His lack of concern for human rights is indeed the external cause of the deterioration of the Chinese human rights situation in recent years, including the democratic protests in Hong Kong getting into low tide.

 

Is there really no hope for President Biden to get on stage?Looking at the layout of the Biden team, it doesn't seem to be as scary as the pessimists think.In Bidenís White House team, there are fewer leaders from Wall Street than in Trump's time, and Bidenís diplomatic and defense team has more hardliners against China.Everyone knows that the CCP publicly brags that they have many old friends in the U.S. decision-making stratum who can influence U.S. policies.Even the American media thinks that Wall Street is the most staunch supporter of the CCP.The layout of the Biden team does not seem to be very favorable to the CCP.

 

Should we blame others, or should we continue to work hopefully?This is a question that does not need to be answered.The Overseas Chinese Democracy Coalitionís 16th Congress held at the end of last year also showed that differences did not affect unity.At least in the issue of anti-communism and fight for democracy, we have no disagreement.

也谈谈阴谋论

-- 魏京生

 

 

美国的总统就职典礼结束了,一切都应该恢复正常了。现在应该谈谈大家都关心的其它问题了,包括最近很流行的一个词,叫做阴谋论。用这个词最多的是中共方面的人,包括那些替中共辩解的西方学者政客。这已经成为中共大外宣的常规手段了。

 

其实最多阴谋的正是说别人阴谋论的中共。最近中共很成功的一个阴谋论,就是说海外民运崩溃了,川粉和拜粉打起来了,彼此仇恨形同路人了。不但各路五毛特务大肆叫嚣,就连一些积极反共追求民主的朋友,也忧心忡忡地附和,直叫北京的习近平抚手偷着乐。

 

最近一位著名的汉学家,还是多年支持民运的汉学家,发表了一篇学术文章。说海外民运因为支持和反对川普,严重分裂以至于差不多崩溃了。而且还点名说谁谁谁怎么样,谁谁谁又怎么样了,证据确凿,忧心忡忡。

 

可他就没注意到,美国人自己的川粉和拜粉也打得你死我活,甚至搞到暴力冲击国会的地步,美国就因此崩溃了吗?好像没有吧。总统就职尘埃落定的第一句话就是:团结、团结,再团结。为什么?因为他们都是美国人,都要生活在美国的屋顶下,有再多的不同意见,也大不过共同的利益和基本价值。

 

海外民运也一样。在共同的目标和基本价值的前提下,有再大的分岐,还是要团结在民主自由的大旗下反共。争吵是正常的,团结是需要的。尽管海外民运的大多数人已经是外国公民,对中国民主自由的关注和付出,是这批人的共同特征。不存在什么崩溃不崩溃的问题。

 

那为什么在网上有那么多自称反共和民主的人,互相恶骂,形同仇人,甚至不共戴天?看官们可能忘记了一件重要的事,就是共产党豢养着一大批网络水军。说白了就是他们领着工资按时上班,就是在网上搞阴谋诡计。贬低分裂海外民运,是他们的工作之一,而且是重点。

 

五毛特务们也与时俱进了。知道共产党特务的真面目不受欢迎,分分钟会遭到大多数人的痛殴。所以伪装起来做工作,欺骗的效果要好得多。特别是对平时不太关心政治的普通人,欺骗性更好,不但骗过了中国人,连外国专家也一塌糊涂了。实际上美国的汉学家就是一碗饭而已,不需要比一般美国人更懂中国,只要比一般美国人多懂那么一点点,就可以在大学里谋个职位了。所以中共的阴谋论骗过他们,不是一件高水平的活动。

 

近代以来中国人的社会心理,总要找个救世主、大救星才满意。川普是中国人的大救星吗?好像不是。他的最大功绩是改变了西方的绥靖政策,并且开始打击中共的吸血式的贸易。但是看看美国对华贸易上升的赤字,就知道他的犹犹豫豫的贸易战,雷声大雨点小,没达到目的。而他的不关心人权,确实是近年来中国人状况恶化的外部原因,包括香港民主抗争的低潮。

 

拜登上台就真的没希望了吗?看看拜登团队的布局,好像不是悲观主义者们想象的那么恐怖吧。白宫的班子里边,华尔街出身的头头比川普时期少,外交国防班子对华强硬派比较多。大家都知道中共公开吹嘘,他们在美国决策层里边有很多老朋友,可以左右美国的政策。连美国媒体都认为,华尔街是中共的最坚定的支持者。拜登团队的布局好像对中共不是很有利。

 

我们应该怨天尤人呢,还是继续充满希望地努力?这是个不需要回答的问题。去年底召开的第16届民运海外联席会议,更说明分岐并没有影响团结。至少在反共争民主方面,没有什么不同意见。
