Potomac Cultural Salon September Event Announcement: Wei Jingsheng's Analysis of the CCPs Infighting from History and Reality

 

 

One of the differences between democracy and autocracy is whether the struggle within the ruling class is openly mild or secretly cruel. Dictators have the tendency to pursue long-term or even life-long governance. It is precisely because of the cruel nature of the struggle that even endangers the lives of their own families and subordinates.

 

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has had the cruelest form of struggle since its adolescence of the Red Army period, and it has been maintained to this day. After the Cultural Revolution, a group of the ruling class members who were abused and even went to prison, such as Deng Xiaoping, Peng Zhen, Hu Yaobang, etc., once reduced the degree of cruelty of the struggle, and also formulated some basic systems, such as abolishing the tenure of life, and being immune from retaliation after stepping down., etc.

 

However, after the autocracy gradually recovered its essence, not only Xi Jinping, but also the unsuccessful Bo Xilai leaned to the old routine of cruel struggle and relentless strikes. This is not an issue of whether individuals are willing or unwilling, but the increasing brutality and unguaranteed consequences of stepping down that forces them to return to their autocratic and authoritarian politics, or the original appearance of what they should look like.

 

The Potomac Cultural Salon is honored to invite Mr. Wei Jingsheng, a famous Chinese exiled politician and social activist, to analyze the internal struggle of the CCP from history to reality.

 

Wei Jingsheng is a famous anti-communist, democrat and social activist of China. He has won dozens of human rights, democracy, and freedom awards such as the Robert Kennedy Human Rights Award, Sakharov's Freedom of Thought Award of the European Parliament, and the National Endowment for Democracy's Democracy Award. Currently, he is the chairman of the Overseas Chinese Democracy Coalition, the president of the Wei Jingsheng Foundation, and the chairman of the Asian Democracy Alliance. He was born in a family of high-ranking officials at the beginning of the CCPs founding of the Peoples Republic of China in 1950. He was well-educated, and also heard and witnessed the power struggle among the CCP high-level officials. In the process of networking the whole country at the beginning of the Cultural Revolution, he personally experienced the darkness of CCPs rule and the suffering of the Chinese people, thus he sprouted the idea of freedom and democracy. In 1978, he published a big-character poster "The Fifth Modernization" on the Xidan Democracy Wall to promote democracy. He was arrested twice for the counter-revolutionary crimes and conspiracy to overthrow the government. After spending more than 18 years in prisons, he arrived in the USA in exile in 1997. The text he secretly wrote in prisons was sorted and published into the book "The Courage to Stand Alone Letters from the Prisons" and was translated into more than a dozen languages.

魏京生做客波托马克文化沙龙,解析从历史到现实的中共内斗

-- 波托马克文化沙龙9月份活动通知

 

 

从历史与现实看中共的内斗

 

民主和专制的区别之一,就是统治阶级内部的斗争是公开温和的,还是秘密残酷的。独裁者都有追求长期甚至终身执政的倾向,正是因为斗争的残酷性,甚至危及自身家族和部属的生命。

 

中共从其青春期红军时期,就已经具有最残酷的斗争形式,并一直保持到今天。文革后的一群被虐待甚至进过监狱的统治阶层成员,例如邓小平、彭真、胡耀邦等人,曾经降低了斗争的残酷性,也制定了一些起码的制度,例如废除终身制,下台后不受报复,等等。

 

但是在专制逐渐恢复了它的本质之后,不仅习近平,就是不成功的薄熙来,也倾向于残酷斗争、 无情打击的老套路。这不是个人愿意不愿意的问题,而是逐渐加重的残酷性和难以保证的下台后果,迫使他们恢复了专制独裁政治的本相,或者说应该有的本来面貌。

 

波托马克文化沙龙有幸邀请到中国著名流亡政治家、社会活动家魏京生先生为大家解析从历史到现实的中共内斗。

魏京生 -- 中国著名反共产主义者、民主主义者和社会活动家。曾获罗伯特肯尼迪人权奖、萨哈罗夫思想自由奖及美国国家民主基金会的民主奖等数十种人权、民主、自由奖。现任中国民主运动海外联席会议主席、魏京生基金会主席及亚洲民主联盟主席。他生于1950年中共建国之初的高级干部家庭,曾受过良好的教育,也耳闻目睹了中共高层的权力斗争。在文革之初的全国串联过程中,他亲身体验到了中共统治的黑暗和百姓疾苦,萌发出自由民主理念。1978年,他在西单民主墙发表大字报《第五个现代化》宣扬民主主义。后以反革命罪与阴谋颠覆政府罪两次被捕入狱。1997年结束了长达18年的牢狱生活后流亡美国。他在狱中偷偷书写的文字经整理后出版成书《傲然独立的勇气》并被翻译成十多种语言。
