Why Xi Jinping Is Determined to Carry-out Zero-Covid Policy?

-- Wei Jingsheng



Xi Jinping's zero-Covid clearing policy has caused anger and resentment.  There is more news from Shanghai that has been characterized by the Shanghaies as their patience has reached the limit.  In fact, there are reports from all over China that people are unable to live.  But why does Xi Jinping have to stick to his zero-Covid clearing policy?  This puzzled many people.  There are all kinds of speculations, most of which are that he wants to show his authority and pave the way for his success during the 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).  This speculation does make sense.  Xi is a dictator, and it is not normal if he does not show his authority.  The life and death of the common Chinese are not so important to him, and even the fate of the CCP regime is not important enough, only his own power is the most important.


But this kind of rational reasoning is not enough to explain his crazy zero-Covid clearing policy.  A lunatic is not necessarily really mentally ill.  For example, Hitler, Mao Zedong, etc. are lunatics according to the view of normal people.  But they are not mental patients, but people with normal thinking logic.  But why do they think like crazy people?  This is because some basic elements of their thinking are wrong and absurd.  Logical thinking with fallacious material or premises is bound to be wrong.


Since the introduction of a set of Western theories of the Communist Party into China, especially since the introduction of the philosophy represented by Marxism into China, the Chinese people's thinking has entered an era of great chaos.  Replacing common sense with pseudoscience and logic with sophistry has become a fad.  After several generations of CCP’s education, the ideological confusion from ordinary Chinese to the so-called intellectual elites can clearly be seen.  Unreasonable confusion is everywhere, and the self-defeating logic is not self-aware, and even self-righteous, in the way people think that it refutes common sense and logic.


This confusion of thinking reached its peak during the Cultural Revolution.  Due to the influence of long-term propaganda and brainwashing, the aftermath has not weakened so far.  Comrade Xi Jinping grew up in that era, and his basic ideas were also formed in that era: his mind was full of pseudoscience and arrogance that “mankind will win over the nature”, as well as being full of belief in violent and absurd thinkings.  This is the ideological source of his insistence on the absurd zero-Covid clearing policy today.


You can find out by analyzing Xi’s resume.  When he was a teenager, he was a boy who was suppressed due to his family.  He rarely participated in outside movement and lacked the ability to distinguish between true and false.  Most of his exposure was to the various violent propagandas that were popular in that era, as well as the pseudoscience of strange powers.  Those who are persecuted will develop in two directions: one is toward dissatisfaction and then attempts to eliminate this unreasonable system; the other is to surrender then worship violent oppression, and develop into a case of Stockholm Syndrome.  Xi Jinping is probably the latter.


Xi was promoted to the CCP secretary-general of a brigade as an “educated youth” in the countryside, which was not normal in itself.  The CCP secretary-general's job is to propagate the enslavement thought of believing in violence, and to enforce oppression.  This has formed his autocratic character throughout his life: he is very flattering under oppression, yet merciless when oppressing others, to the degree that he will not have the normal sentiments to his relatives and friends.  This is the typical tyrant without humanity character which was popular during the Cultural Revolution.


It is worth noting that when he was the CCP secretary-general of the brigade, Xi engaged in small activities such as biogas power generation.  There is nothing wrong with this in itself.  But when this ideological tendency to pursue fashion without understanding got developed to the present, it become his zero-Covid clearing policy with the determination that “mankind will win over the nature”, and his crazy policy of closing coal mines regardless of economic development, to the degree of not allowing ordinary Chinese to burn coal for heating, and so on.


All kinds of absurd thinking of Xi Jinping have created his absurd policies.  That this absurdity can be turned into reality is because a large number of people who were affected by the Cultural Revolution have just as sick minds as Xi, who felt that Xi was right, supported him and helped him.  Otherwise, it is impossible for Xi to turn these absurd ideas into truth and carry them out.


For the last one hundred years, the Chinese have studied Western culture.  Both good and bad have come into China.  While the Chinese Communist Party is in power, it uses various campaigns and monopoly propaganda to magnify those absurd things and use them for brainwashing, which has caused confusion in the minds of the Chinese people in the last 80 years.  This is the ideological source of many of Xi Jinping's absurd policies.  In today's China, it should be like what the early American sages said: restore common sense and stay away from pseudoscience.
