Infighting Before and After the CCP’s Sixth Plenary Session

-- Wei Jingsheng



The Sixth Plenary Session of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) made a very strange resolution; the so-called historical resolution that imitated the previous dynasties but did not look like them.  According to the format of the two CCP’s “Historical Resolutions” of the previous dynasties, this should have negated the resolutions of the previous few sessions and create the core leadership group and new roadmap for the future.  It has been a traditional CCP method to use the method of tampering with history to establish a great image for oneself.  This was Xi Jinping's intention to apply this format.


Unfortunately, Xi Jinping does not have the atmosphere of the first two CCP’s “Historical Resolutions”, nor the prestige of the first two cores, not to mention a new road map that can be agreed on by the whole Chinese Communist Party.  So even before the 6th Plenary Session of the CCP’s 19th Congress, there was already strong resistance with more than 500 opinions put forward, and fundamental changes were made.  Even though Xi’s aid, Li Zhanshu roared like thunder, he failed to suppress the opposition.  Even if Xi Jinping assigned himself to be the head of the writing team, he has not been able to force everyone to write the statement he wanted into the resolution.  All these failures prove that the so called observation claimed by the foreign media that Xi is in control of everything, is only a guided public opinion manipulated by the CCP’s big propaganda to outside world, not the real situation in that black box.


Before the Sixth Plenary Session of the Central Committee, the internal fighting within the CCP was hidden in a black box and unknown to the outside world.  Only the media outside of China that have been misled by the CCP’s propaganda to the outside world are clamoring for Xi Jinping.  From some reports after the plenary session, it can be known that the contention of the text was very fierce, which went far beyond the usual routine of a stagnant pool, and eventually led to the failure of Xi Jinping's intentions.  This pushed the internal struggle within the CCP to a new climax.


Before the plenary session started and after this resolution was basically finalized, the clues of infighting began to be exposed.  Because Zhang Gaoli, the only strong and healthy man in Jiang Zemin’s faction, has been the most powerful man who opposed the denial of Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin's line, his mistress for many years complained about him on social media.  This was originally a very personal love dispute, and the court could have resolved it.  But the media got hype with political color.


Then, as the international organizations and the news media got hype, it turned into a major international scandal that humiliated the CCP state and affected the 2022 Olympic Games.  It could be said that Xi Jinping had lifted a rock yet the rock hit himself in the foot.  He is not sure how to respond, hesitating to advance or retreat.  This even made the CCP wolf warrior spokespersons stunned, and even started talking nonsense.  International public opinion combined the citizen journalist case, the disappearance of Interpol Chairman Meng Hongwei, etc., which beat the CCP Central Committee into a mess.


Before the dust fell on the case of Peng Shuai against Zhang Gaoli, and even before the case has been filed, we now read about Xi Jinping’s illegitimate child.  This is just like when they hyped about Wang Qishan's illegitimate child case and trillion-dollar corruption case which led to Wang’s resignation.  Will this wave of hype lead to the resignation of CCP’s Secretary General Xi?  It is hard to say.  In short, the current atmosphere is very unfavorable to Xi.


The reason behind Wang Qishan's quitting a few years ago was that Wang wanted to take over the leadership by relying on anti-corruption to build his prestige and realizing Zhu Rongji's unfulfilled ideals.  As a result, the combination of those in power and behind the scenes and the combination of domestic and foreign countries beat Wang up, until he stepped down sadly, but only kept the position of vice president of the country without power.  The common Chinese call it as the "Karma in this life".


This time, the atmosphere President Xi is facing is even worse.  He offended the complete set of elites in the CCP, the government, the military, the academics, and the business circles, yet without offering the common Chinese much good.  Xi tried to deny Deng and Jiang’s reform line and touted the line of Mao Zedong’s dictatorship.  Obviously, it is difficult for the whole Communist Party and the whole country to accept it.  Therefore, in the fierce game before the Sixth Plenary Session, it was expected of the victory of the anti-Xi faction.


Since Xi wants to revive the traditional emperor system, logically he has to accept Deng Xiaoping's so-called Chinese model, which is the traditional model of autocratic politics to manage the market economy.  However, the CCP’s one-party dictatorship is a model of serfdom, and it cannot be combined with a more advanced traditional model.  Without the legitimacy of inheritance and the matching Confucian ideology, this so-called Deng Xiaoping model has not inherited the legitimacy, apart from inheriting a super corruption.


This is a paradoxical model.  How to resolve this inherent contradiction?  Scholars and experts have no answer.  With his wisdom at the secretary of the brigade level, Xi believed that the path of extreme autocracy and personal dictatorship that Mao Zedong took in the end was a path that conformed to Chinese characteristics and could make ordinary people to obey.  Unfortunately, Chinese nowadays are not the obedient people of the pre-Qing period, and the current elites are not believers of Neo-Confucianism (of the Song and Ming Dynasties).  Let's all sit down and enjoy our melons, while continuing watching this good show.
