Xi Jinping's Road Is Getting Narrower and Narrower

-- Wei Jingsheng



In the past few days, the United States announced continued sanctions against officials of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) involved in Hong Kong’s repression; the US Secretary of State Blinken warned Hong Kong’s business environment is deteriorating; and the media analyzed that Hong Kong’s finances might regress quickly and on a large scale because of the so-called National Security Law.  All in all, Hong Kong, the Pearl of the Orient, has lost its former glory because of Xi Jinping's misjudgment.


Why had the small sized Hong Kong become an economically prosperous and rapidly developing region?  Many people, even people in Hong Kong, think that it is because the so-called vast and deep connection to the so-called motherland.  This is actually a misunderstanding, because the different system between Hong Kong and the Mainland China makes Hong Kong's environment to be the same as foreign countries, instead of Mainland China.  The well-developed finance and commerce in Hong Kong is mainly due to Hong Kong's relatively free market environment and the freedom of information dissemination that complements it.


The development of modern industry and commerce is inseparable from the operation of the financial sector.  The operation of the financial sector is normal or not, depending not only on the judgment of the operators in the financial sector, but also on the judgment of its vast participants.  Without free and sufficient information, misjudgments will greatly increase, and the level of normal financial operations will decline.  Manipulating the market to obtain huge profits, or harvesting money in the stock market since the era of Zhu Rongji will increase.  Abnormal financial operations will affect all economic behavior to be abnormal.  The level of economic development will drop to the same level as what is under the Communist system in Mainland China.


Since the Chinese Communist regime took over Hong Kong, Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin still understood that the root Hong Kong was based on its free political system.  Therefore, efforts were also made to ensure that Hong Kong's existing free system was maintained.  However, since the 1980s, the United States and the West opened their markets to give blood transfusions to the Communist regime and Hong Kong's function as an economic tonic of the Communist regime declined.  But to Mainland China with an abnormal economic and political system, the role of this tonic was still not to be underestimated.


Since Mainland China began to experiment and implement a Communist political and economic system in 1950, its economic situation has been very bad.  However, with the Chinese people's tradition of being smart and hardworking, coupled with Hong Kong's tonic function, it could still be maintained without collapse, and it even developed slightly.  Even in an environment when the Communist regime had been sanctioned by the West on several occasions, it was still possible to import scarce supplies, including weapon parts such as aircraft engines, from Hong Kong, the free middleman.  This was an important condition for the Communist regime to maintain its autocratic rule.


Now the rapid development due to the deception created by Deng Xiaoping etc. with the blood transfusion from the West is gone.  Economic exploitation and wolf warrior diplomacy caused the awakening of the West and the increasing sanctions by the United States and the West were restored.  Domestic growth in China has slowed down, and social conflicts have risen.  At this time of domestic and foreign difficulties, the strangled death of Hong Kong, the big tonic medicine, is tantamount to self-castration economically.


Since Xi Jinping came to power, he has implemented a policy of gradually choking Hong Kong to death.  The arrest of Jimmy Lai and the forcing of Apple Daily to close its doors were landmark events that ended Hong Kong’s freedom of information.  This action shocked international public opinion and gave sufficient reasons to sanction the CCP, and also ruined the last chance to unite Taiwan.  Therefore, the United States judged and warned that Hong Kong no longer has the business environment of the past, and investment in Hong Kong has become dangerous.


Xi Jinping doesn't make a living as a eunuch, so why does he want a castration?  This is abnormal.  My analysis is that for himself, it is because Hong Kong had become a base for spreading scandals about him and his family, yet the Chinese customs were unable to block the spread, so Xi vented his personal anger.  Hong Kong has also become a hub for scandals about the major families of the Communist regime, so Xi Jinping is supported by the high level Communist leaders when he vents his private anger.  In addition, the Hong Kong people's movement to safeguard the existing system has caused the anger of conservatives within the CCP.  The elimination of Hong Kong’s free system does have a base of public opinion within the CCP.


Sun Tzu's Art of War says: You do not fight because of anger.  This misconduct by Xi Jinping and the top leaders with the CCP is a major condition for the accelerated collapse of the Communist regime.  For sure, there must be some people within the CCP who want to save the collapse, which actually is very easy.  As the Jimmy Lai and the Apple Daily case have not yet been tried, change the practice of externally forcing the court, and make the court ruling in accordance with Hong Kong's tradition.  This can slightly restore the bad effects, slightly restore the confidence of the Hong Kong people, and slightly retain some freedom of information.  Regrettably, the system of the Communist regime is in the hands of a few people, and the interests of the CCP and the China have always been subject to personal will.  So both Hong Kong and China are hopeless.
