Protest CCP’s Perverse Actions, Lead China’s Democratic Revolution

—Political Report of the Democratic Party of China National Committee Second Special Congress

December 12-14, 2014, New York

(Finalized)

Translated by: Qiongyan Weng

 

April 2010, the Democratic Party of China National Committee held its first special congress in Long Island, New York, which is an important milestone in the history of Chinese democracy movement in the course of forming an opposition party determined to overthrow the one-party dictatorship. More than four years later, the political situation in China has witnessed further deterioration: Communist Party has completed its oligarchy transformation, embraced neo-fascism, and increasingly strengthened its oligarchy political execution and its brutal repression of democracy activists. Facing with worse situation and new big challenges, we Democratic Party of China National Committee as an organization and we Chinese Democrats never give up but always continue fighting against Chinese Communist Party at various important occasions at home and abroad, in spite of going through many twists and turns, encountering numerous sabotages, and even experiencing internal fraction.

Today, we can once again gather in Long Island, New York, continuing to utter cries for freedom, hold high the democracy banner, expose CCP's tyranny, and discuss strategies and tactics over transforming China. This event itself highlights the Chinese people's unremitting efforts and unwavering determination to seek freedom and the establishment of democracy.

During the Second Special Congress of the Democratic Party of China National Committee, we need to complete an important task. We should have a clear picture and conclusion about the historical stage of CCP authoritarian regime; we should expose comprehensively and make criticism on CCP's anti-humanity, anti-people, anti-history and anti-civilization policies; we should profoundly recognize the multiple crises CCP has inflicted to China and the Chinese people in the fields of politics, economy, society, justice, ethnics, diplomacy and many others. Only after completing abovementioned tasks, we can have our awareness, spirit and thoughts level to a new height and reach to a new depth; we can explore and practice effective way to mobilize and organize members in the organizational level; we can find effective strategies and tactics to fight against Chinese Communist Party. One key issue is that we must, for the benefit of all Chinese people, draft an alternative vision of democracy to replace the autocratic Communist system. This vision must be equipped with scientific and realistic transforming idea and attract and mobilize people’s support and participation. With the combination and consolidation of human power, materials, intellectual and spiritual resources, it will ignite and lead Chinese Democracy Revolution and overthrow CCP’s dictatorship. All of these will ultimately help us to achieve a liberal, democratic, and constitutional political system characterized by freedom of expression and freedom of association (including the freedom of establishing party) and based on competitive elections.

The political report is divided into the following four parts: first, evaluation of China's current overall situation; second, all-round failure of CCP’s governance and proposed alternatives (this section is subdivided into five small parts—political system, economy area, justice, ethnic relations and foreign policy); third, the necessity and urgency of the formation of a multiparty political system; fourth, DPC’s organizational policies and strategy for future action.

Part I: the evaluation of China's current overall situation

In 1978, the Third Plenum of CCP started the policy of "internal reform and opening up", which has brought tremendous positive changes to Chinese society and also benefited Chinese people. However, due to the limitations of CCP's own ideology, political pursuit, the desire of maintaining already obtained interest and many other factors, this historical process experienced many repeated setbacks, stagnation, even retrogression, and comprehensive contra-revolution. In 2008, after experiencing large-scale Tibetan protests in March, Wenchuan earthquake, Beijing Olympic Games, global financial turmoil, "Charter 08" and other major events, the history of CCP entered a new phase with dramatic changes. The "reform and opening up" policy has never get thoroughly implemented. Bureaucratic authoritarian nationalism has suppressed people, deprived people’s civil rights, eliminated the economic surviving space of private enterprises, and hindered the development of civil society. The anti-intellectual populism and narrow-minded nationalism (with Han chauvinism as the core value) controlled by the government have oppressed minorities, refuse and suppress the universal values, and become the obstacle of human progress. That year, "the Mao leftists" using Chongqing City controlled by Bo Xilai as a platform openly promote singing “Red Songs” and support Cultural Revolution resurgence. The CCP privileged new class turns into oligarchic interest groups and control the world's second largest economy. The power stucture of “officials owning, officials governing, and officials benefiting” has been set up. Government officials monopolized capitalism resulted in state enterprise’s limiting national economy’s development, forming a “State progress, people regress” economic situation. It also shapes the social deformity of a weak middle class and huge poor under-privileged lower class. CCP resorts to atomized separation and isolation of individuals as well as repression and control of civil society organizations. In that way, CCP completely avoids its government responsibility, refuses responding to Chinese people, and establishes a financial and tax system crazily exploiting national resources. On the other hand, CCP supports an all-time ubiquitous “stability maintenance system” as its dictatorship machine to suppress the people, sponsor the “Fifty Cent Party” propaganda team to suppress freedom, human rights belief, and maintain a huge “Schutzstaffel”(Party security army) to challenge the international order.

There is no need to deny that "Beijing model" and the "the rise of great nation" concocted by the CCP propaganda machine are based upon the accumulation of China’s last thirty years’ social and economic development. First we must be clear that China's "economic miracle" is mainly due to the release and liberation of Chinese people’s creativity which was suppressed for a long time by the Chinese Communist Party. Therefore, CCP cannot attribute China’s development to CCP’s governance and it cannot force people to show gratitude to communist party. In addition, economy accumulation of thirty years development is built on many factors, such as low economic development starting point, the demographic bonus resulting from 60’s and 70’s baby boom, cheap labor, reduced family financial pressure under the family planning policy, manufacturing opportunities resulted from Western countries’ economic structure transformation, the capital support from overseas Chinese (especially from Hong Kong and Taiwan), the expansion of Western consumer market, and so on. Because these factors cannot exist forever, the past three decades presented a special opportunity window in Chinese history. But for a Communist Party’s own interests, and even for a small handful of powerful interest group, CCP did not make the best out of this historic opportunity to help grow the private economy, development middle class, and form the civil society. On the contrary, the CCP vested interest groups turn national wealth to private property, compete with the people, loot private resources, ignore the balance of ecological resources, ignore the investment in and upgrade of human capital, form a coalition with international capital, exploit predatorily of China's natural and human resources, and transfer production profit margin and financial capital to overseas, all at the expense of the long-term interests of the Chinese people and future generations. CCP did not lead China to the living standards of developed countries and did not bring the revival of the Chinese nation. On the opposite, CCP puts China into a long-term poverty trap with middle-income level, makes China fall into the crises of resource depletion, environmental destruction, population aging, loss of competitiveness, labor shortages, domestic capital flight, foreign investment decline and many others. CCP has buried the economic development and political transformation opportunity of the Chinese nation as a 100-yr event.

Under the current system and policies of CCP, the Chinese people's autonomy and creativity has been suppressed again. China is bound to suffer the full range of political, economic and social crises. In this regard, CCP top leadership is more aware of this than anyone else. This is not because of CCP's "Greatness, Glory, and Correctness" to foresee the trend, but because: first, the CCP leadership themselves also know that they have used suicide method to empty China with unprecedented corruption, leading to party’s self-destructive behavior. So he or she, at the proliferation of materialism, lust and eschatological mentality, desperately takes bribes and exploits Chinese people, China’s landscape and natural resources, national treasury reserves, , and Chinese people’s savings (including bank deposits and foreign exchange), organization’s money and opposite sex subordinates. He or she then bids farewell to their loved ones, dependents, children and lovers, transfers assets out of China, purchases property overseas (mostly Western countries), and transforms themselves from Communist Party officials into foreign landlords who will live overseas forever.

Second, CCP completely controls the flow of information, distorts the truth, produces fraudulent information and outright lies by using propaganda machine, and brainwashes people. Therefore, there is no information efficiency in China. The general population, even low-level officials are unable to obtain real and reliable political and economic information. Under the support of internal control mechanism of security systems, internal file system, spy system and Ministry of State Security (penetrating into ambassadors, consulates, Xinhua News Agency and unofficial cultural and educational institutions), CCP officials monopolize political, economic and social key information through information asymmetry. Their whole family emigrated, and they even escape from China and sweep away the capital, etc. These behaviors are by themselves meaning that CCP officials are voting with their feet. It really shows China's political and economic decline.

Third, the Chinese Communist Party’s institutional political cancer has entered the diffusion period, so its head sores, its feet pus, and dead appearance has been hard to conceal. From high-level power dogfights between Bo Xilai, Zhou Yongkang, Xu Caihou, Ling Jihua and Xi Jinping, to low level officials’ bullying the people and disregarding human life, it clearly exposes that upper lever leadership can’t rule China as it used to, middle and lower-level officials have lost self-restraints, and lower people have been driven to revolt, leading to more and more people not able to continue to tolerate the existing governance. The notion that “Reform is dead; the democratic revolution is approaching” has become common belief and general expectation of China’s civil society.

Fourth, the domestic uprising and rebels have become more frequent. For example, Tibetan Buddhists continue their self-immolation as a means of their resistance movement; Xinjiang Uighur Muslims expand and upgrade their "holy war" against CCP; the coastal areas take actions to defend their Christian church and holy cross happening one after another; Occupy Centre movement initiated by Hong Kong students, scholars, and the general public has attracted international attention. Chinese Communist regime has reasons to worry about their own imminent collapse. Therefore, on one hand, CCP strengthens stability maintenance system; on the other hand, it more frequently and intensively uses "Guns", "Knives" and "Pens" to damage, harass, oppress, and arrest all participants in the activities of the Democratic Party of China, "Charter 08" movement, civil rights movement, new citizens' movements, NGO, petition groups, religious organizations and various other forms of democracy and freedom movements. It contains, infiltrates, and sabotages the global expansion of Falun Gong organization through infiltration and sabotage. Its implementation of torturing and mutilating Falun Gong practitioners are obnoxious and unconscionable. These perverse brutal actions have not shown how strong and solid CCP’s Party-Nation system is. On the contrary, it just shows that a crowd of hundreds of millions of the uprising have been brave enough to abandon the CCP regime, stand in opposition to the CCP, and loudly say "No!" to CCP. CCP senior leadership’s fragile inner fear and vulnerability of authoritarian regime have been completely exposed.

Fifth, history has proved that Communist tyranny system is wrong. Instead of accepting the truth, CCP exhibits its addiction to wrongdoings, and its arrogant behaviors have resulted in international resentment. Needless to say, in past few decades, especially the past decade, major Western countries and transnational capital, to pursue their short-term economic profits and selfish material interests, sometimes even gave up their historical responsibility and liability to human society and formed alliance with the Zhongnanhai oligarchs and unfairly gained benefits from China, trampling the principles of sustainable development, excessive plundering China's environment, labor and resources at the expense of future generations of Chinese people. However, because of the world’s graduate realization of CCP's outrageous and growing threat, the CCP's barbaric authoritarian regime directly conflicts with global values and international order, when democratic system has included most countries and populations in the world. The change in international public opinion resists CCP and brings in inevitable intervention. It will become the external international factors pushing dramatic changes in China. CCP has been aware of its isolation in the international arena. Hence, on the one hand it strengthens its traditional ties with the international rogue states; on the other hand, CCP and the new czar of Russia Vladimir Putin hold each other for warm and embolden each other. CCP has no wisdom to realize that its spreading ostentatious gold around the world is just the manifestation of Red Empire’s lack of international legitimacy and Empire’s over-expansion.

It is against this background that the new leader of CCP, Xi Jinping, came to power in 2012. Xi Jinping launched a massive "anti-corruption" campaign in a series of actions to "rescue party and secure power". For the majority of Chinese people, Xi Jinping’s move reignited their expectations and Xi's "China Dream" has kindled optimism among people. But in fact, two years after his succession, Xi Jinping began a full range of personal power accumulation. Through de facto deviating from CCP’s constitution enacted in 1982, weakening the powers and functions of the National People’s Congress, derogating the positions of State Council and Prime Minister, establishing various committees outside party and government system to accumulate personal power, and especially, in addition to two military committees, establishing National Security Council with comprehensive functions regarding internal affairs, diplomatic, military, economic, financial, and information, Xi controls the party, government, military power and turns a nominal state President seat into a powerful position. He turns the dictatorship theory listed in the Constitution into a de facto dictatorship. We can clearly see that today Chinese political system has become a hybrid freak, a combination of oriental bureaucracy, Maoist version of communist tyranny and totalitarianism backed by the twenty-first century high-tech supports. If we recognize that the proliferation of Communist corruption, the arbitrary rule of power, the ever enlarging wealth-poverty gap, the grassroots social disorder, the social and moral decay, the poisoned natural ecological environment, the deterioration of relations with neighboring countries, the increasing conflict with the existing international order and so on, all of these crises can ultimately be traced back to the nature of the Communist regime, then we have reason to predict that Xi Jinping's actions can only exacerbate current crises of CCP regime, aggravate disasters faced by Chinese people, and accelerate the arrival of the democratic revolution.

Part II: Fully failed CCP governance and DPC’s alternative proposals

  1. Political System

Establishment of the Party Ruling System.

Chinese Communist Party was initially formed in the opposition of KMT’s Party-State system and it promised Chinese people a freedom and democracy future. As early as 70 years ago Mao Zedong, in the "New Democracy", promised that: "China is now able to adopt a system of the National People's Congress, the Provincial People's Congress, County People's Congress, and the Township People's congress, and governments should be elected by People’s congress on all different levels. But China must implement equal voting policy with no different treatments among sex, religion, property, education equality to realize truly universal suffrage. "Moreover, Mao Zedong also explicitly declared that the democracy he wanted to achieve, is the" Three Principles of the People " Democracy, is "of the people, by the people and for the people" Democracy, and is the "four freedoms" Democracy proposed by US President Franklin D. Roosevelt (freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from fear and freedom from want)

But two years after CCP established its regime it declared that "universal, equal, direct secret ballot" has become "old slogan," which had progressive meaning when used in the past to fight "against Chiang Kai-shek dictatorship", but under the new regime it is not suitable anymore because "working people cannot read, have not experienced elections in the past, and are not sufficiently concerned and enthusiastic for the elections at the time being." In the 21st century, CCP has not yet fulfilled its promise of universal suffrage. Since World War II, China and Saudi Arabia have become the only two countries in the world never experienced general elections. Without liberal, openness, direct and competitive elections, there is no democracy in the modern sense—representative democracy. So far, China is still a Party-State controlled by a political party who seizes the power by "gun" and then monopolizes political power. Because of CCP’s complete control of every aspect of Chinese society, the establishment of communist ideology as the only true ideology, monopoly in the armed forces and weapons, monopoly in propaganda and the media, absolute control of strategic industries in the national economy, control of personnel appointment for all public positions, employment of hatred, violence, fear and lies to rule Chinese people, today, Chinese Communist "Party-State-Ruling-System" is also the largest one in the history of mankind, and the most sophisticated and horrible totalitarian regime in the world. It is the hybridity of Solzhenitsyn's "Gulag Archipelago," Orwell's "Big Brother" regime in the 1984 and Alfred Day Hershey’s state—Leviathan, a demon refined in the Brave New.

NPC system is congenitally deficient with hopeless development.

Before CCP’s seizure of power, People's Congress was established as the core system in the construction of Chinese New Democracy. Now it is considered to be the country's highest authority. According to "In the celebration of the sixtieth anniversary of the National People's Congress establishment meeting of speech", Xi Jinping recently declared: "Implementation of People's Congress system in China is one of the greatest creations by the Chinese people in human’s political history." He added: “60 years of empirical experience has fully proved that the people's congress system is aligned with China's national conditions and reality and is a good system that reflects the nature of the socialist country, ensures people’s ruling status, and guarantees the realization of Han’s great rejuvenation "However, the current overall decline of people's congress system and its willingness to just be a political vase is an indisputable fact.

First of all, compared to countries such as North Korea and Vietnam, whose National Supreme Council are directly elected by their people, CCP controlled the so-called "democratic election”, which is a manipulated multilayer representative election where only county and township levels adopt direct election, and any levels above county adopt indirect election method. Compared with elections just completed in India this year, where with the population of 800 million, 550 million people voted. It is evident that how different China’s national conditions are and how uneducated Chinese people are in the eyes of Chinese leaders.

Secondly, the progress of People’s Congress system from decentralization and decentralization under the former reform party leader now has been fully abandoned even showing retrogression. More than two decades of reform after the People's Congress system was restored, NPC gradually change from the "big brand, the old man, basket case", "two hands meeting" (raise their hands, clap your hands) and "rubber stamp" to a system with some real functions in reflecting public opinion, supervise administration, judicial practice and anti-corruption. The progressive incremental reform of "Run small step, do not stop,” and the expansion method of conflict-and-adjust helped the People’s Congress system develop into a system of accumulation and methods. More or less, it benefited China's progressing towards a democratic constitutional government. But after 2003, with "Hopeless Two Guo” (Wu Bangguo and Wang Zhaoguo) governing People's Congress, the People's Congress embarked on a declining road for a decade. Wu Bangguo’s a big move to remove some functions of People’s Congress strongly brought to the central government Shanghai’s policy of “Party controls overall situation and coordinating all forces. The People’s Congress almost turned into an organization subject to being coordinated, just like the government, the Chinese People's Political Consultative Committee (CPPCC) and youth and women organizations. The so called “the highest authority in China” has become a mockery. When faced with people’s demand for more freedom and democracy, the People’s Congress used the excuse of absentee issue (in the incidence of Wukan) or acted as a killer (for example, in 2011 on the "independent candidates" phenomenon and this year in Hong Kong universal suffrage for electing the Chief Executive).

Meanwhile, more and more Chinese people already know that the richest 70 NPC representatives’ net wealth in 2011 was more than the sum of the net wealth of 535 national congressmen, the US president and his cabinet members, and nine Supreme Court justices. Chinese National People's Congress has become a "rich people’s club." Many of them have foreign nationalities, which turns the NPC a real "parliament of nations." People's congresses at all levels have become dark places where collusions between officials and businessmen are happening. Most ironically, the Chinese people's congress system as the "klippe" of Paris Commune and the Soviet system is seated by many “UFOs” who have foreign passports. The so-called "naked officials" has become the biggest Party-State with "Chinese characteristic." Country folk depict that: "all officials are hiding green card, half of them having mistresses." The Chinese people are far away from democracy, but what even worse is that they have been gradually pushed into party dominated colonial sovereign controlled by state leaders who are traitors to their country and people.

Oligarchy cannot cure corruption.

Finally, Xi Jinping, who is the head of CCP, government and military, relies on the Special Committee to govern China. He turns the nominal political position of State President into a "super president" system, makes the People’s Congress system further regressing into a "rubber stamp", and further marginalizes the State Council and the prime minister. Xi Jinping leadership’s design of the "head of state system" (also called "Leader State") leads to a centralized personal accumulation of power to the extent which is greater than “fierce and ambitious” Mao Zedong and "strongman” Deng Xiaoping. We can even directly compare Emperor Kangxi’s “Court Supervision” and Emperor Qianlong’s “Sovereign Dictatorship”. Xi Jinping launched a “Constitution Self-coup", turning the oligarchy transformation started ten years ago and the Trinity bureaucratic system of the party, the country and the military into an oligarchy where government officials are corrupted and taking advantage of their people. “Uncle Xi” is the monarch created out of the traditional oriental despotism and modern totalitarianism

But Xi and his propaganda machine are still constantly creating brilliant "Rise Dream", "Dream of Middle Class" and "China Dream", singing "put the power into the cage," "anti-corruption needs to target at both fliers and tigers" and other high-profile fake democracy. They try to boost the Communist Party through fighting corruption, and they hold a fantasy of avoiding the “Doomed Party, Doomed Nation” destiny and a fantasy of realizing the CCP’s Thousand Year Reich. In fact, the Communist regime already entered into troubles of collective action. CCP suffered from "three trust crises" since 18th CCP National Congress. Today no one believes that eighty million Communist Party members join the party for the communist faith. Naturally, under the authoritarian regime, the only "patriots" (in fact, the followers of power) are the dictators themselves. Therefore, Xi Jinping, who controls the party, government, military, and internal and external affairs, becomes the only man who loves the party and state.

Every communist party official even those “sesame” deputy level officials with little power can prey upon the people and be severely corrupted like a greedy big mouse. Each official thinks that taking a little bribe and stealing a little from public would bring no big harm to the Party-State’s overall wealth. “Great, Glory, and Correct” Party’s governance legitimacy and stable ruling would not destructed by some individuals’ corruption. Officials from all levels are in fact enjoying the free ride and free lunch provided by Xi Jinping and communist party’s ruling. They not only knock people’s bowls and also smash people’s pots. CCP corruption dynamic mechanism comes from the top and the anti-corruption macro-policy is not driven by personal benefits. Fewer and fewer people truly share responsibility and contribute to solving Party-State’s problems. So CCP comes up with using autocratic power like power centralization, control, threat, and intimidation to fight with “lies and tigers”. Anti-corruption campaign is just the tool they used to engage in fractious battle within the party and a guise to suppress intellectuals and ordinary citizens. It will not solve CCP’s crises; on the contrary, it will trigger and deepen internal struggles, exacerbating Party-State’s collapse.

The basic idea and direction of political system reform

The fundamental purpose of democracy transformation or democracy revolution is to build a free, democratic, and constitutional system. The democratic constitutional blueprint proposed in “Charter 08” has been formally accepted and adopted by the former DPC National Committee. However, more detailed and specific constructive work will be negotiated and completed on constitutional legislative assembles after the launch of democratization in China.

But without the slightest ambiguity, the fundamental principles of freedom and democracy is to protect fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens, which means: freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of association, freedom of establishing party, freedom of religion and worship, freedom of movement and residence, freedom from fear, private property rights, the sanctity of private property, and minority rights of preserving different ethnics and cultures, languages, and traditions. Open and pluralistic political party system (embodied in a multi-party system or a two-party system) and competitive direct election should be the basic infrastructure for the establishment, maintenance, and consolidation of democracy. China’s democracy system will include: democratic representative from direct election, the administrative system lead by a freely elected president or prime minister, independent judicial system (including constitutional judicial review court), political-neutral civil service institution, professional and civilian controlled military, and a federation structure respecting local autonomy and power decentralization.

In a China democratic system, the vulnerable groups will enjoy the most emancipation and liberalization. Under the CCP’s patriarchal, parental, class-divided structure, the CCP tyranny inflicts great harms to female bodies and minds. Women are still disadvantaged group under the party-state. Female in China does not enjoy enough political participation and political equality, freedoms from fear, especially freedom from the sexual harassment and sexual abuse by those with power and those holding higher level positions. Family planning policy implemented by Chinese government makes people suffer from forced sterilization, abortion, and infanticide. There are gender discrimination in employment and wages. We can see the Chinese Communist Party inherited the feudal patriarchal tradition. From Mao Zedong’s having mistresses in Cave and Zhongnanhai, to Zhou Yongkang’s having more than four hundred mistresses national wide and turning CCTV into an inner palace dwelt for Zhou Yongkang, Xu Caihou and other officials, we can see that CCP and its officials are in the stage of unprecedented indulgence, sensuality, corruption, erosion and degradation in human history. They become the nightmare and reality disaster of Chinese people’s wives, daughters, and sisters. In addition to playing political game, collecting money, and harassing people, Chinese officials have a second job as patrons of brothel or acting as pimps for their supervisors. They public service focused more on enjoying “shared mistresses” rather than serving people. Here, DPC National Committee solemnly promises our female compatriots that we will build a China safeguarding, improving, and promoting women’s rights without gender discrimination. We will strive to consider female candidates first in our staffing structure, leadership composition, future election nomination, and government appointments, at least fulfilling over one third quota in all fields. We will make a long-term plan to realize equal opportunity for both men and women.

After restructuring the relationship between the State and society, we will develop and foster civil society, and we will respect the autonomy feature of unions, peasant associations, women's organizations, scientific and educational communities, literature and arts organizations, religious groups, media and all NGO's. Especially, state is a secular center of power, and it should be separated from all religions and ideologies, maintaining the same distance with them and holding a completely neutral stand regarding religions. Meanwhile, a democratic China will reconstruct the relationship between politics and economy, separating the government and enterprises, establishing professional independent banking and monetary system to achieve having market logic regulate economic activity. In short, the unified central government will be deconstructed; the full power operation system from top to down will be replaced by two-way power flow model with horizontal and vertical directions. Government will share the leadership of society with market, civil society, and families. China will become a democratic governance system with multi-centers and multi-layers.

  1. Economic Field

Distorted economic system

Since CCP’s rise to power in 1949, CCP followed a mixed ideology of Marxism-Leninism, Stalinism and Mao Zedong Thoughts and established a country of so-called "proletariat dictatorship under the leadership of CCP based on worker-peasant alliance”. In the planned economy system copied from the Soviet model, all natural resources (including land, minerals, forests, rivers and lakes, roads, etc.) were owned by the state, and the accumulated private properties for thousands of years have all become the assets of CCP. A rigid and closed power economic operation system was set up, controlled by CCP’s political officials through wealth monopoly.

The so-called socialist state ownership is arbitrary without any legal principle basis. In fact, it deprives thousands of individuals and families of all the material wealth and economic source accumulated from thousands of years; it destroys the natural economy and unplanned economic order. CCP imposed state planning policy to run economy, banned any exchanges within market trading systems, and distorted and abandoned the basic resource allocation function of market. In more than three decades of planned economy, the national economy is on the verge of collapse. China's central planned economy has brought about "shortage economy" and an acute shortage of material and goods suffered by the whole society. More than one billion people living a long-term misery life where they cannot even maintain basic goods for survival.

Not until the Third Plenary Session of the 11th Central Committee in 1978, the senior leadership in CCP decided to promote the policy of "economic reform" and "opening up", trying to change the poverty and backwardness of China. In the decade of 1979—1989, CCP decision-making leadership gradually recognized the effectiveness of farmers’s spontaneous exploration with great personal risks in Xiaogang Village, Fengyang, Anhui. National-wide, farmers abandoned the rigid and inefficient system of the people's communes and began the implementation of the "production contract to households”—traditional one-family business. Finally, senior leadership viewed this “rural household responsibility system” a replicable system.

Essentially this is a return to primitive and traditional agricultural operation. CCP, violating the laws of nature and making rules based on its will, recorded it in its official history boasting the system as one of the evidence of communist party’s great creativity and achievement. The significant changes and deregulation brought by CCP’s policy adjustment in agricultural field also encouraged changes in the industrial field. Secretly attempted enterprise contract management and incentive bonuses, in fact, encouraged state-owned enterprises to shake off the shackles of the state planning and actively look for unplanned demand and orders. Many state coordinated production materials and tools also have been loosening-up and adapting to the actual needs. We must point out that, in this process, "dual system" of price for production materials was formed. At the same time, unplanned adjustment and supply also appeared in the circulation field, opening the convenient door for the party and government bureaucrats to get rich first.

In less than a decade, Chinese people have gotten rid of the socialist planned economy and have gradually tasted various "commodity economy" benefits. Three years after "89/64" massacre, Li Peng and Jiang Zemin returned to the rigid leftist economic model, while western countries implemented economic sanctions against China in general. China's economy was in recession again. To avoid repeating the mistakes of the Soviet Union’s collapse, Deng Xiaoping launched the policy of further opening and various experiments in national economy. In 1992 Deng's "southern tour" and "southern tour" speech and social commentary published in newspaper proposed engaging in a market economy and allowing people to make bold attempts.

In fall 1992, 14th National Congress of CCP formally established the development goal of a "socialist market economy". China’s economy appeared rapid growing prospect. Even further division of production in market trades and continuous market scope expansion were not actually introduced to the market economy, the "socialist market economy" a relative prosperous national economy during 1993 to 2003 (we can even call it “golden ten years "). But good thing can’t last, since the so-called "Hu Wen New Governance", Chinese economy experienced drastic phenomenon of "State Progress, people Regress", with the private economy, joint ventures, foreign-funded enterprises suffering suppression. Economic growth was weak and enterprises lacked innovation capability. There were conflicts existing in economic structure and crises emerging in the financial system. China's economic structural crisis is more acute in the past two years.

 

Analysis of the current economic situation

According to 2014 official economic data released by China's National Bureau of Statistics, the growth rate of China’s third quarter GDP was 7.3%, which was the lowest growth rate since the first quarter of 2009. Impacted by 2008 financial crisis, the 2009 first quarter GDP growth rate was 6.6%. In fact, since 2012, GDP growth has been hovering in the low level and appeared a slow decline. This year is exceptionally low. Since building a socialist market economic system was proposed in 1992, only 1998’s GDP growth rate was in such a low level, but it did not show low growth for the following three consecutive years. Moreover, seven years after the 1997 Asian financial crisis, China's economy had been restored to the booming phase. In the seven years after the world financial crisis in 2008, China's economy has fallen into a severe depression.

The plight of China's economy is also reflected in the economic trend of dramatic ups-and-downs. In the past three years, China's economy witnessed turmoil in consumption, investment, and export. Since 2011, the average annual growth rate of total retail sales of consumer goods fell by 2% and the entire economy began to turn cold. After each substantial decrease, the economy was not able to rebound. The entire curve appeared like climbing down the stairs, with more obvious downward trend. Not only the growth rate of total retail sales of consumer goods declined, the final weight of the growth rate of consumption in GDP was also declining. It dropped to 8.6% in 2013. Since 2008, the annual growth rate of final capital formed dropped significantly and it decreased to 10.7% in 2012. At the same time, the growth rate of total fixed asset investment has also dropped significantly.

With the survival environment of private economy continued to deteriorate, a lot of private capital fled abroad through various channels. RMB Capital Account Liberalization was postponed repeatedly, leaving RMB freely convertible plan with no defined timetable and implementation details. China’s possessing of such huge foreign exchange reserves has resulted in a tremendous funds outstanding of RMB, over-issuing notes by the Central Bank, and formation of RMB’s significant depreciation trend. The competitiveness of state-owned financial enterprises is very weak and is dependent on monopoly and government protection for a long time with continuous generation of new bad debts and not in accordance with previous commitments to complete closure and bankruptcy. Uncollectable bank loans, the long-term accumulated bad debts, and intensified local government debt crisis in recent years (apparent and hidden total local government debt currently add up to more than 40 trillion yuan) are likely to lead to the financial system crash over the next three years. With the devaluation of real value of RMB, inflation pressures continued to expand, although the inflation rate from official statistics in recent years has maintained about 2 percent, but the estimated inflation rate by independent scholars and actual perceived inflation rate by Chinese people is not less than 8%. In recent years teachers’ strike and demands on higher wages in many places are very common, making the issue of longstanding income gap more obvious and leading to more social confrontations.

The huge financial revenue acquired by the government through collecting taxes and other channels is not shared with ordinary Chinese people effectively. The taxpayer's basic rights are not respected and guaranteed and national welfare has been in low level in the world for a long time. Meanwhile, the social security system built on deduction of people’s wages remains relatively fragile with limited protection. A large number of unemployed, retired or retired-from-illness workers cannot enjoy efficient unemployment insurance, retirement security, and health care. Museums, galleries, theaters, public libraries, parks, stadiums, arenas and other public welfare and cultural facilities have consumed a huge amount of government tax revenue, while they are not able to provide basic services for the residents. To the opposite, they became profit institutions depending on government support, coercive buy-and sell, and unreasonable charges.

In short, the instability of China’s economy is attributable to the return of contra-market planned economy and the trend of rigid policy. Long-term dominance of state-owned enterprise in resource industries has seriously distorted market allocation, resulting in inefficiencies in key sectors of the national economy (including electricity/coal/oil/transportation/communications). Due to the continued government suppression on capitals, banks continue to be the government's financial treasurer tools. The government continues to maintain the state monopoly on foreign exchange system established under the planned economy, leaving China's private enterprises continue to suffer from discrimination in the capital markets. Under the frequent negative real deposit rate, private financing has to pay more than 20% annual interest rate, which is the cost entrepreneurs had to pay in Europe 500 years ago when banking and the stock market has not yet appeared and developed. For businesses and people, their foreign exchange incomes cannot be converted to benefits brought by the international market competition (such as low commodity price, strong currency value maintenance and appreciation, etc.), but are directly subject to a corrupted government’s monopoly of international liquidity. Control of foreign exchange has facilitated the official’s transfer of assets to overseas and CCP’s money diplomacy.

Reconstruct and establish the economy system benefiting people’s rights and welfare

Chinese Communist Party and its government have so far refused to face the reality of the troubled economy and to honor many promises made during its decades of rulings. They cannot implement and protect Chinese people’s economic rights and all kinds of welfares. According to the new political economics theory of public revenue and public budget, it is China’s inevitable choice to build an open, transparent, efficient and honest tax, budget, and accounts system, strengthen taxpayer concept, and progressively realize parliamentary supervision, external oversight, citizen oversight and media monitoring. To this end, DPC National Committee will work on advocating and promoting the following series of economic reform:

First, we will immediately implement the separation of party assets and state assets and prohibit expenditures used in any party organs/departments, propaganda, organization, meeting, party newspapers and various advertising media. The ruling party’s activity expense will be originated from party membership dues income. We will not forcefully acquire the funding from the society through public power.

Second, we will immediately abolish all privileges of officials (such as special food supply, issuing official uniform, medical privilege, reimbursement of huge expense after retirement, etc.) and officials’ free usage of cars. Civil service transportation will be accommodated through the normal arrangements of government vehicles. We will transform and improve the order and system of professional civil service officials. Wages and allowances information will become public and transparent. The officials’ additional income and their relatives’ usage of public property would be required to be explained publicly and subject to media supervision.

Third, we will launch a comprehensive reform of tax system to ensure that local governments have independent and stable source of tax revenue. Individual income tax will adopt a single proportional tax system, initially determined to be 18%. For luxury consumption, luxury homes and luxury vehicles (including private planes and yachts), separate special taxes will be implemented. For any individual concealing assets and income, we will implement legal sanctions even bring them to criminal trial.

Fourth, we will establish national welfare foundation with all the funds coming from confiscation of corruption money, fines, and proceedings from market auction of state assets. A third party custodian organization will strictly manage any expense. The foundation will have rigorous accounting and auditing supervision and regularly announce financial information to the public. The foundation will proposed a specific national sharing projects and programs and will gradually implement them after extensive discussion and public voting

Fifth, we will establish a long-term stable free market mechanism guaranteed by the rule of law, and establish an independent monetary department with full authorities. The central bank will be responsible for the implementation of an independent interest rates and monetary policy tools. We will accelerate the full opening of capital market and capital projects. We will thoroughly abolish official protections for various types of state-owned enterprise monopolies as well as state subsidies and special incentives. According to the idea of "deriving from the people and giving back to the people" and public financial revenue principle of establishing limited government and providing full public services, we will make public expense clearly composed of transfer payments and other publicized spending indicators. More than 45% of public expenditure would be allocated in national welfare (long-term US government transfer payments account for more than 45% of public expenditure).

Sixth, we will greatly reduce the so-called public security spending (also known as stability maintenance expenses) to less than 0.3% GDP, reduce all military spending (including explicit and implicit expenses) to less than 2% and increase education spending to 4.2% . Education spending is mainly used in basic education (more than 65%). Direct government funding for universities will be cancelled. State owned universities will be transformed into private universities and local government funded universities (such as at provincial/municipal level etc.).

Seventh, we will stop all non-emergency government foreign economic relief aid and encourage private charitable institutions, religious organizations, non-governmental organizations and individuals to contribute in humanitarian and charitable aid. If special aids are necessary, there must be open discussions, debates, and project exhibitions held in order to have national congress to make approval decisions and monitor its implementation.

  1. Judicial field

The rule of law, as the name suggests, means that people govern society and resolve social conflicts according to the law. Compared with the rule of man, the basic meaning of the rule of law is the supremacy of law with no one being above the law and having privileges. Even the framers of the law must also abide by the law. In accordance with the principles of justice, law maker cannot be law enforcer and interpreter at the same time. If the law-maker, such as the Chinese Communist Party, is also the leader of law enforcement and judicial department simultaneously, then the law can only be the ruler’s tool and society is still subject to the rule of men or the rule of party. For China to achieve the rule of law, we have to get rid of any party's leadership over the legal system and realize judicial independence. To get rid of the party's leadership and realize rule of law, the establishment of an independent judiciary is inevitable for Chinese.

The Law Outside of China's Law

China's current legal system is developed on the basis of the so-called People's Congress system" determined in 1954 Constitution. In theory, this system emphasizes that the origin of government power is the people's congress at various levels: the National People's Congress make constitution and laws; national and local people's congresses at all levels elect and oversee corresponding national institutions, including judicial departments. Judicial departments include the People's Court, People's Procuratorate, police and national security agencies. "People's Court" hears a variety of criminal, civil and administrative cases just like with as trial courts around the world. The creation of People's Procuratorate originated from the former Soviet Union. It is the national supervisory authority of prosecutors and law enforcement. Public security department is the regular state police agencies and the national security department is designed for the so-called national security.

As China's ruling party, CCP proposed "building a socialist democracy and legal system," in 1979 and later changed "the institution of law" to "the rule of law". In 1999, CCP added to the constitution that "People's Republic of China implements the rule of law to build a socialist country." But the Communist Party has always put the Party's interests above the interests of the people and deems the Party's policies above the law. In 2007 Chinese Communist Party put forward the so-called "Three Supremes" principle “Supremacy of the business of the CCP, Supremacy of the interests of the people, and Supremacy of the Constitution and the laws” On October 23, 2014, the CCP Central Committee made a "decision regarding comprehensively promoting the rule of law on a number of major issues," and still "uphold the leadership of the Communist Party of China" as the first principle of fully implementing of "rule of law". CCP’s self-retained ruling privileged has been beyond the meaning of "rule of law", which virtually means that CCP has abandoned the fundamental procedural safeguard of people’s being the master of the country—democratic election process. This denies the existence of the "rule of law" and shows that the privileged are in power.

Under the principle of "upholding the party's leadership", another law exists outside the laws in China. Currently, China has two sets of legal systems and legal norms, one of the party and the other of the State. In additional to national laws and national jurisdictions, China has another set of non-constitutional political norms and law enforcement institutions. In addition to the laws legislated by the NPC, the CCP Central Committee make various policies from time to time such as "the CCP Central Committee document", "notice" and documents under other forms

CCP Central Disciplinary Committee directly detained party members and cadres in question according to “Shuanggui”. Chinese Communist Party set up central and local Political and Legal Affairs Commission providing specific guidance to local judicial departments on enforcement of CCP Central Committee’s policies. They discuss cases and even make decisions on certain cases. In these two sets of systems and norms, CCP’s policies and law enforcement agencies are outside the constitutional system. So, upholding the leadership of the Communist Party itself is to deny the rule of law and is the source of legal chaos.

China's Legal Chaotic Phenomena

The above mentioned CCP’s decision on the legal system has already acknowledged that after 65 years of CCP’s ruling, China still has not built a society based on the rule of law. In fact, China’s legal chaotic is even much worse than what CCP has recognized.

CCP’s decision mentioned above regarding the rule of law has also been acknowledged, in sixty-five years after Communist rule, China has not established the rule of law. In fact, as China's chaos far worse even than the law of the Chinese Communist Party recognized. China’s legal chaos run rampant, including: leadership and officials masking decision based on their personal will, the Party’s will replace the law, and even obvious violating and trampling on the law. Other phenomenon includes "failure to abide by the law, not strictly enforcing the law, impunity", "not standardized, not strict, not transparent, and uncivilized executive and judiciary practices", "unfair and corrupted law enforcing and judiciary” and so on. China's chaotic legal phenomena not only exist in corrupted or top cadres’ lawlessness, but also mainly exist in the following aspects:

First, the Chinese authority willfully violate human rights, deprive citizens of their freedom of speech, assembly and association, such as convicting crimes based on expression, which was shown in the case of CCP’s sentencing Liu Xiaobo to 11 years in prison and in the cases of imposing sentences on Liu Ping, Li Sihua and Wei Zhongping who requested the open publication on government officials’ assets.

Second, under the thinking of the "maintenance of stability overrides everything", "secession", "overthrow the regime", "endangering national security", disturbing social security and other trumped-up charges are the excuses that the government uses to arbitrarily arrest, detain, and sentence news reporters, lawyers, academics and various petitioners. The government gives tacit consent to "black jails" and torture. Through violence and employment of the "triad", the government implements forced evictions, encourages “Chengguan” personnel to beat up citizens, and illegally detains the citizens who are against the abuse of executive and judicial power.

Third, the law is used as the tool for political campaign to control and suppress the society. For example in 1983 and 1996’s "crackdown" and so-called "crime crackdown" special campaign in Chongqing in 2009 were to serve a particular political purpose and to complete the task assigned to individual leaders, which are the typical example of trampling the law. "Cracking" is usually accompanied by (even by itself is) "black fight" to suppress the persons and things that are disliked by the government and even some government officials.

Fourth, through the "law outside the law" and in violation of the Constitution, the Central Discipline Inspection Commission and other agencies selectively punish corruption in the name of "Shuanggui". They crackdown on dissidents to centralized power while centralization of the real line against dissidents but also want to earn the “moral arch”.

Fifth, the government restricts the freedom of practicing lawyers. Beyond its authority, executive department regulates "disobedient” lawyer, even frequently revoking their licenses.

Sixth, judicial corruption is very severe: there are private collusions among judges, prosecutors and lawyers through money, power and sex trade to transfer and distribute interests. It dangers the interests of our nation society by taking advantage of vulnerable groups and individuals.

Judicial independence is the top priority of building a civilized China.

Getting rid of the Communist Party's leadership and ensuring judicial independence are the fundamental way to solve the phenomenon of China’s legal chaos. Communist Party leadership and the rule of law principle are theoretically irreconcilable. First, the basic principle of the rule of law is the supremacy of law, which means any government agency and political party organizations must carry out activities under the law. But adhering to the leadership of the Communist Party puts the party above the law.

Second, under the rule of law principle, the laws are the procedures and rules to achieve social justice. Under CCP’s rule of law, the law is just the tool for the ruling party. If the ruling party makes mistakes very often, legal justice cannot be achieved and social justice will not be guaranteed. History proved that the Chinese Communist Party’s 65 years of ruling has committed numerous sins and errors which have brought a lot of social injustice. Citizens cannot rectify the injustice resulted from the party's policies through legal procedures. Even if the ruling party's policies are correct, they can’t automatically bring about social justice if there are no justice safeguards in the implementation of these policies.

Third, under the rule of law, judges, law enforcement officers and lawyers should be independent. Through arguing and reasoning, they achieve social justice together by following fair legal proceedings. In the final analysis, the rule of law led by the Communist Party is the leadership of party committees and party secretary which ultimately becomes the rule of man. The rule of man eventually turns into chaotic governance and bad governance.

Fourth, for a society, the rule of law is the road toward achieving social justice and ensuring long-term stability through legal procedures. The rule of law under the leadership of the CCP, cannot overcome the injustice suffered by the society because of the shortcomings of the ruling party’s policy—speculation, timeliness, short-term, and insularity (group, departmental and local interests). Putting CCP's policy above the law is placing the practical interests of Party-State groups above the rule of law, at the expense of long-lasting social justice.

Fifth, the rule of law requires disclosure of procedures, but the leadership of the Communist Party is precisely operating under-table dealing and keeping everything confidential. Of course, the so-called keeping secret is just deceiving the people. The behaviors of some Communist Party’s senior officials such as Wang Lijun who defected to the United States consulate to reveal the party state, "traitors" Zhou Yongkang who leaked major state secrets, and Lin Jihua who leaked state secrets oversea plans to "discharge overseas" indicating that there are some senior leaders of the Communist Party who are hypocritical opportunists, eating the expense of the Party-State but not loyal to the Party-State.

Sixth, under the rule of law, corruption can be curbed because power is controlled and checked by multiple parties with supervision from both party and government, check and balances of separation of powers as the horizontal supervision, supervisor-subordinate as the vertical supervision. Under the dictatorship of the Communist Party, the premise of its anti-corruption campaign is to maintain its absolute leadership, and thus anti-corruption is selective, unprincipled and often avoids the important and dwell on the trivial.

Only an independent judiciary can bring about the true meaning to the rule of law. First, judicial independence means that the judiciary should not be subject to the manipulation and control of any other state organs, political parties, social groups or individuals. Following due process of law, judges should decide cases independently and a lower court shall not be manipulated and influenced by a higher court. Superior court can only review a lower court's decision throng appeal or special procedures. Otherwise, the appellate courts are useless. Secondly, judicial independence also means that prosecutorial and law enforcement agencies should perform their duties independently not subject to the control and influence of any other state organs, political parties, social groups or individuals. Finally, judicial independence also means that lawyers are able to practice freely and handle cases independently investigators without being influenced and controlled by any other state organs, political parties, social groups or individuals

Judicial independence is bound to respect for human personality and ability, meaning that a civilized society should believe and respect that the judiciary personnel selected through a rigorous procedure are able to deliver legislator’s intention independently to achieve social justice. Negation of judicial independence is to deny the basic wisdom of the professional judiciary and to deny that they are competent in fulfilling responsibilities conferred by the society. Placing the judicial officers placed under the party's leadership is publicly declaring that party leaders are social supremacy and their judicial competence and wisdom are above the professional judiciary.

The most effective way to ensure the independence of the judiciary and prevent the judiciary from moving in wrong directions is to build a self-regulated and disciplined judiciary profession group with the assistance of freedom of expression and social supervision.

China Democratic Party's recent proposals regarding the rule of law

We firmly believe that China's many judiciary problems are impossible to be solved through "repairing the torn gown" approach under the existing judicial system. From a long-term perspective, judicial independence and fairness requires a democratic government as the prerequisite for. But in the near future, Democratic Party of China will also advocate and promote the following judicial reform measures:

First, any organs of the Communist Party at all levels in courts, procuratorates, public security, and private law shall be eliminated.

Second, special equity courts shall be established. Appropriate procedural requirements shall be developed to identify and process selected petitioning cases

Third, the Bureau of Justice under the executive departments at all levels shall be eliminated. The administration of lawyers shall be subject to the administration of the courts.

Fourth, the administrative expense budget of the courts and prosecutors shall be decided by the corresponding legislatures and shall not be controlled by the executive branch.

Fifth, ethics and practice standards of judicial personnel shall be established and made public. Any private contact between judges and other judicial personnel should be prohibited. Judicial officers may not discuss the case with any other officers outside of court.

Sixth, extorting a confession by torture should be strictly prohibited. The accused shall have the right to remain silent. Detained defendant’s right to have unrestricted visits from lawyers shall not be restricted

Seventh, the people’s assessor system shall be abolished and the jury trial shall be adopted and established, which means findings of fact will be made by the jury participating in the case

Eighth, evidence law shall be established. Hearsay shall not be accepted as evidence. The rule shall be established that the affidavit made by a witness not present in the court should be excluded

  1. Ethnic Relations

China is a multi-ethnic country formed after Han ethnic’s outward expansion, conquering the nomads outside the Central Plains and being conquered by them. Since the historical process of the formation of Chinese nation state is very complex, China's state system includes a unitary system, regional ethnic autonomy system, and "One Country, Two Systems"—special administrative region system. It also faces separated cross-strait relations with Taiwan and Taiwan's de facto political independence.

The evaluation on current situations in Xinjiang, Tibet, Taiwan and Hong Kong

Since Xi Jinping’s rise to power, traditional conflicts in Chinese border areas have not been eased, but they actually become tense due to Xi’s rigid and tough policy. Just within two years, more violent conflicts erupted in Xinjiang and its adjacent area have experience, killed and injured hundreds of Hans and Uyghurs (perhaps even thousands). Xinjiang is almost controlled by the military; barely maintained stability is more like the silence around the tomb. Tibet has also been in paramilitary control state for many years. Two years after Xi’s rise to power, he has not made any benign adjustments regarding Tibet policy, leaving Dalai Lama's "middle way" proposal not getting any positive response. The issue of Tibet is a volcano with gradually rising pressures within and may erupt again at any time possible. As for Taiwan issue, since Xi’s takeover, Xi has adopted anxious and inflexible policies by adhering to the principle of “One Country, Two Systems” which are not accepted by Taiwanese and eagerly implementing “unite by economic” tactic. It finally leads to the island's "Sunflower Student Movement." Taiwan's 2016 election will reflect that the political situation in Taiwan and the mainland are deviating more from each other. Hong Kong issue is the “hot potato” artificially created since Xi Jinping’s ruling. Because the CCP Beijing authority broke the promise of autonomy for Hong Kong people regarding Hong Kong's 2017 election " and violate the principle of “Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong", trying to manipulate the nomination of 2017 Chief Executive candidates. Responding to central authority’s decision, Hong Kong people staged “Occupy Central With Love And Peace “and "Umbrella Protest Movement" consequent accounting of, The issue has not been addressed properly.

Xinjiang Issue

Xinjiang’s current ethnic conflict is entirely due to CCP’s religious discrimination, ethnic discrimination policy, economic plunder policy, over-migration policy, obsolete and excessive expansion of “Stationing Troops and Reclaiming and Safeguarding the Border Regions” policy and autonomous government’s corruption. Recently, Xi again stigmatized the demands of Xinjiang people and other Muslim peoples as "terrorism, extremism and separatism", which makes ethnic issue more complicated and blocks the door of solving problems and building a harmonious society.

In order to ease the ethnic conflict in Xinjiang and restore peace and ethnic harmony along Chinese border, the Chinese authority must thoroughly review their ethnic and religious policies and economic policies to recover and improve the real ethnic regional policy and the policy of religious freedom to respect and protect human rights of all ethnics, especially their freedom of religion and cultural autonomy. To eradicate corruption in Xinjiang, the Chinese government should adjust the underlying minority economic policy to make it more conducive in economic development and minority employment. Only fundamentally changing the current policy of maintaining stability through violence and force, can China break the vicious circle of "the more maintaining stability, the less stable the country is”.

Tibet issue

Tibet issue is entirely due to the same polices (imposed by CCP for many years) of religious discrimination, ethnic discrimination, economic plunder, and over-migration. The issue is also due to CCP’s not reflecting on the so-called counter-insurgency in 1950s, ignoring the reasonable demands of the Tibetans in exile, and denial of 14th Dalai Lama as the leader of Tibet.

To bridge the ethnic fraction occurred in the snow-covered plateau and resolve the disaster faced by Tibetan religion and Buddhist believers, the Chinese authorities must rethink the Tibetan religious policies (started since 1950s), fundamentally replacing the policy of maintaining stability through intense suppression with the policy of reconciliation and religious tolerance, sincerely address the reasonable demands of Tibetans in exile and Dalai Lama, and start sincere negotiations, so Dalai Lama can lead a dignified return of Tibetans in exile lifetime peacefully, and ethics wounds can be repaired to achieve national reconciliation and build a democratic country.

Taiwan Issue

Reunification is a possible choice for the people across the Taiwan Strait. Democratic Party of China supports and is willing to promote reunification on the basis of voluntariness, equality, and peace. But now the mainland has no qualification to "liberate" Taiwan. For peaceful reunification, the mainland Chinese Communist authority must fully understand the legitimate concerns and demands of Taiwan's 23 million people on political system security, and respect for Taiwan's democratic system which has been established. Meanwhile, Chinese government should recognize the failure of "One Country Two Systems” model (experimented in Hong Kong and intended to applied to Taiwan) and face the new situation across the strait, especially evaluate the political situation in Taiwan Island after the "Sunflower Student Movement". Chinese government should timely abandon the "One Country Two Systems" policy and change policy to reconsider the future of the two sides with the principle of "Confederation first, then unification". "One country, two governments" is a reality existing for more than 60 years. Any attempt in the way of the big bullying the small or unification under one government is unrealistic fantasy. Respecting the reality and the tide of history is the wise choice. If there is unification cross-strait in the future, the unification must be a democracy structure because only democratic structure, rather than other options, can lead to real unity

 

Hong Kong Issue

Adopting the "One Country, Two Systems" policy to solve the reunification issue is a pragmatic transitional measure. But whether this process will run smoothly and enter the framework of freedom and democracy also depends on whether the Communist Party keeps its promise to truly allow Hong Kong people to rule Hong Kong, while completing self-transformation and transmutation.

Unfortunately, the untrustworthy nature of CCP appears again, and CCP perpetrates a fraud once again in 2017 Chief Executive election plan through manipulation and repeating the trick, trying to have the "one country" trump over the "two systems." But CCP had not expected that Hong Kong people who are greatly influenced by freedom, democracy, rule of law, and globalization would not compromise. They launched the “Occupy Central Movement”, which has become an outright protest which Beijing had never seen before and which Beijing cannot tolerant. This direct collision between democracy and dictatorship is a heroic feat of the democratic forces in Hong Kong saying “no” to Chinese dictatorship. The protest movement will be recorded in the history of China’s democracy road. The Democratic Party of China is in favor of and supports for the democratic protest by Hong Kong students and citizens. We also call and urge the Chinese authority to give up authoritarian ruling, to keep promises, to respect the will of Hong Kong people, and to promote genuine universal suffrage in Hong Kong in accordance with international standards. Only in this way, the "one country two systems" and "Hong Kong people governing Hong Kong "can be truly implemented and China can ultimately realize the democracy in Hong Kong, which could be served as a lever to promote democratization in mainland China.

In summary, the current minority frontier, religious policy, Hong Kong policy, and Taiwan policy have reached a dead end and have brought serious problems to the people residing in these areas. Tracing the root, it is all because that CCP’s totalitarian and authoritarian one-party ruling is contrary to the history and the international trend by rejecting political reform and refusing to accept universal values. Over time, it will lead to country’s separation, genocide and regional wars bringing great disasters to the Chinese and nations around China. To this end, the Democratic Party of China reminds CCP to change its current policies in Xinjiang, Tibet, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. CCP should not make any mistakes along this road and should not continue to make our nation suffer in irreversible historical tragedy and harm.

Currently, the situation of the Great China including minorities, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan is unstable and fragile, with three possible directions of development: first, the CCP will build a Chinese empire dominated by Hans through elimination and assimilation of minority policy and the repression policy replacing the "one country, two systems" policy; second, the conflicts between Hans and other major minorities will intensify under CCP’s authoritarian regime, eventually forcing Uighur, Tibetan and Mongolian, and even some parts of the Han ethnic to seek independent road and demand separation, just like following the collapse of the old Soviet Union; third, through the implementation of local self-government, the establishment of national liberal democracy system, the promotion of Asia-Pacific regional integration, and the acceptance of globalism, China will build a supranational governance system in China and even in Asia, similar to the European Union, maintaining peace and unity under the framework of weakening sovereignty. The ultimate goal of the Democratic Party of China is to reverse the separations in family and country and build an equal, peaceful, and harmonious new governing model together with Tibetan, Mongolian and other ethnic groups, and Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macao entities.

  1. Foreign Affairs

The People's Republic of China established in 1949 essentially is a party state system with the Communist Party's authoritarian ruling, as opposing to the modern representative democracy in social system and ideology adopted by the United States and other countries. In 1950s, China was one part of the international Communist bloc; in 1960s the conflict between China and the Soviet Union in competing for the leadership of the communist movement quickly turned the two great powers into enemies with each other and even lead to armed border conflict. In order to counter the Soviet Union, Mao had to improve relations with the United States, making the 1972 Nixon visit to China possible. China and the US established formal diplomatic relations in 1979. After the "Cultural Revolution", in order to end the civil strife and provide a good external environment for China’s modernization, Deng Xiaoping amended Mao Zedong's "inevitable war" doctrine and proposed the new theory that "peace and development is the mainstream of today’s world.” Deng, Jiang and Hu ‘s leadership focused on handling internal affairs while, in diplomatic area, they kept a relatively low profile and adhered to the guideline of "keeping a low profile, remaining honest and poor” and generally maintained balanced relationships with the United States, Russia, Europe, and Japan. Even after China's national economic strength has increased, with China’s GDP ranking the second among the world in 2010, Hu’s diplomatic policy still remained cautious and defensive. But around 2008, CCP’s statism together with narrowed nationalism rose up and CCP severely suppressed liberalism. CCP launched an attack to globalization and globalism, promoting the "Chinese particularism" and "exceptionalism." Especially since Xi Jinping came to power, even more dramatic changes were observed in the CCP's foreign policy.

The international harm of "Red Empire"

Just within two years after CCP’s 18th National Congress, Xi Jinping quickly abandoned Deng’s legacy of "low profile" diplomatic policy and showed to the world China’s unprecedented strong power and expansion. In the territory of the East China Sea and South China Sea, the disputes between China and Japan, Philippine, Vietnam and other countries over land and sea territory escalated dramatically. Although these conflicts are aimed at marine resources and showing nation-state conflict nature, they also mean a deeper geopolitical and ideological consideration. Behind the China-Japan conflict and China-Philippine conflict, there is the China-US conflict. On one hand, the Communist Party talks about "building a new relations between China and the US”; on the other hand, CCP has always deemed the United States as the real enemy aiming at "subverting" Chinese government. To this end, Russia's Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping are getting closer and closer. The two countries have set up a quasi-alliance strategic partnership with the goal against the West. Beijing also throw more money in Europe and also spread its influence into Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Africa, Latin America and even more distant areas, trying to compete for influence with the United States in these areas. Culturally, the party-state’s "big propaganda" covers across the globe with an unprecedented scale. CCP not only promotes "speaking good Chinese story" and praises the "Chinese model", but also declares "leading the world in moral area." Chinese Communist Party and some foreign “friends” who are keen to gain the benefits offered by Chinese government are forging a wonder of the 21st century. It looks like China has really "risen" up.

The DPC’s democrats and Chinese people all hope the rise of China. But today the Chinese people's GDP per capita is still ranked in the hundreds in the world. The real rise of China should be the rise of a democratic China, rather than the rise of an authoritarian China. It should be the rise that Chinese people can benefit from rather than the one due to the party-state's vicious inflation. It should be the rise of a modern civilized nation rather than the rise of the party-state’s "Red Empire", which poses a threat to human’s modern civilization and also become a direct threat to the interests and future welfare of China's 1.3 billion population. Reasons are the following:

First, a government hostile to the democratic forces in the world will compete in the diplomatic field with the West and is bound to increase the suppression and control of in the territory of freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom of religion and citizen’s political rights. "The CCP Central Committee Number 9 Document" (2013) is a vivid example. It is a document about “seven bans” on the ideology (banning constitutional democracy, universal values, civil society, the liberal news concept, concept of private property, and persecuting CCP’s wrong doing, which are all classified as “wrong thoughts, ideas, and activities” that must be criticized). CCP denigrates human mainstream civilized values accumulated along the history as the conspiracy of "hostile forces" to subvert Chinese government.

Secondly, the Chinese economy is now deeply embedded into the chain of a globalized economy and has become an important part of the global economy. Western countries are just now beginning to realize the threat from the rise of "Red Empire". Once such statement becomes the mainstream opinion in the world, the current international momentum of economic and trade cooperation with China may be reversed. To China's ordinary people, this reversal is certainly not a blessing; it may bring the chained effects to China’s domestic economic environment, national inflation, and the increased difficulty for employment.

Again, CCP constrained China’s development for maximizing the party-state’s interests. The arms race with Japan and the United States is inevitable. More of Chinese taxpayers' hard-earned money will be converted to the expenses in aircraft carriers, nuclear and fifth-generation air fighter. Blindly patriotic "angry youth" may be proud and even elated, but DPC’s National Committee is clearheaded and reasonable enough to recognize that: making enemies of democratic countries who representing human’s advanced civilization will eventually bring disaster to human society Of course, history will bring a gift—it is the Chinese Communist regime's self-destruction.

Last, but not least, in order to balance against the United States, Europe and neighboring democratic countries, the party-state rather choses to form an alliance with Russian who has been harming China for a long time. In past history, Russian is number one country in occupying Chinese territory in terms of areas. China's red system was also introduced from the former Soviet Union. In the 90s of the last century, Russian completed its initial democratization transition, but in recent years, Russian returned to autocracy when Putin repeatedly relives the dream of the tsar in Imperial Russian era. In consideration of the long-term national interests of China, we know that the bilateral Sino-Russian alliance would be a recipe for disaster under the current internal system. However, Li Keqiang's visit to Russia in October 2014 reached a bilateral currency exchange agreement. In the situation of Russian ruble facing sanctions of the West, this agreement will definitely bring a tremendous loss to Chinese economy. This deal has become the new evidence proving that CCP has been limiting and harming China’s development with the party-state’s interest consideration.

DPC’s diplomatic policy

In view of this issue, the Democratic Party of China National Committee proposes of and will be committed to ending the anti-western-world “new Cold War" started by CCP. We will construct the positive interaction with the democratic countries to form a coalition. We make efforts to change the current knowledge base of China's foreign policy and its direction. We strongly propose the following points:

China's future lies in the integration into the democratic community around the world, rather than allying with authoritarian countries which are unsustainable and full of crises. CCP’s strategy of making alliance with Russian to limit US is against safeguarding the long-term interests of China as a nation. China and Russia can and should develop normal state relations, but forming an evil alliance to fight with democratic world will only lead China to a hopeless situation!

China's economic rise and China’s democratization going hand in hand will not only benefit the Chinese people, but also benefit to neighboring countries and the world, because only a democratic China can bring to the world security, stability and prosperity. It will also safeguard China's own security, stability and prosperity.

After democratization, China will pursue reasonable nation-state interests. A nation no longer kidnapped by the Chinese party-state will rationally deal with the territorial disputes with neighboring countries to seek a peaceful solution. The geographical politics consideration based on the party-state’s ideology will disappear forever in the perspective of Chinese politicians.

A democratic China will really assume the responsibility of a big country; China’s cooperation with the United States and other democratic countries will facilitate China’s fulfillment of this responsibility.

In the long run, the current global nation-state system based on sovereign national framework is no longer suitable for solving the environmental, ecological, and sustainable challenges posed by our human beings. An era of more advanced global governance will come. And the premise of such global governance is that all authoritarian regimes disappear from the historical stage. China's democratization is the most critical condition for the creation of new global governance. This will contribute to the realization of China's rise and revival and even help to promote the comprehensive revival of the whole Asia e in the history of world civilization.

Part III: the necessity and urgency to establish a competitive multi-party system

As analyzed above, China's five crises in authoritarian political system, crony capitalism economic, judicial corruption and injustice, ethnic relationship and reactionary foreign policy, after all, are caused by a one-party dictatorship of the Communist Party. "Under one-party dictatorship, everywhere is disaster." This conclusion applies to China's modern history and is more applicable to today's China. Since the Communist Party started to seize power by force, "the gun out of the regime" has become the historical logic for denying modern democracy. The same logic basis for the principles of "The people are the masters of the country," and "government of the people, by the people, for the people" is that the people must have the right to participate in elections and orderly replacing government through the electoral process to ensure that the government and its officials will listen to, respond to, and serve the people by fulfilling their political responsibilities. If there is no freedom of speech and freedom of association as the premise, there would be no liberal, open, and competitive democratic elections. With no democratic elections, the people will have no right to replace the officials. The relation of officials and the public will inevitable change nature: the so-called public servants should necessarily degenerate into domineering masters, and the so-called people will inevitably be treated as slavery becoming "subjects" and "shitizen." In order to truly ensure the Chinese people’s legal and political status as the “taxpayer, voter and citizen”, the starting point for political development must be terminating " one-party dictatorship " and establishing the allowing the establishment of a pluralistic political party system (which may be a two-party or multi-party) which allows the forming and existing of opposition parties.

The history of political party development makes it apparent to us that the different stages of social development and the resulting differences of peoples around the world are the objective reason for the creation of multiparty system. There are four factors for the establishment and separation of parties, which is the inevitable logic for the history of multi-party system. First is the social division. The second is the class stratification into farmers, landowners, workers, capitalists and professional workers. The third is religious pluralism. The last one is the trend of human beings shifting the pursuit of material satisfaction toward the pursuit of non-material values (such as the Green environmentalism). In fact, the Chinese Communist Party and its so-called "eight democratic parties" also reflect the natural evolvement of China's political system during the era of the Republic of China, but later it was distorted by CCP.

China's political development deformity brought by the "One-party dictatorship" shows in the following aspects: first, the existing of an opposing party and the possibility of its assuming the reins of government are the best guarantee factor for curbing the ruling party’s corruption. Not only the opposition party can provide the opportunities for correction, it will also have a deterrent effect on corrupted officials. Corrupted officials in the previous terms can be brought to justice. If there is no opposition party, there would not be the ruling party's self-discipline and integrity.

Second, the opposition party’s achievements are not compensated, so the opposition party will always detect and point out the ruling party’s mistake under the extreme scarcity of resources. The opposition party will propose more creative and more efficient improvement plans. In order to win public support, the opposition party would be more concerned about the quality of their organization. Party members will pay more attention to personal integrity and become closer to the voters, more sensitive to public opinion and more responsive to the public request. Abandoning the establishment of opposition party system is abandoning a monitoring political system that is of imagination, innovation, and high efficiency.

Third, the existence of the two parties or multiple parties can provide the voters with an opportunity for government political shift, thus realizing the gradual policy. Obstructing the existence of opposition party is giving up the option of progressive institutional and policy reform, only leading to the super-stable structure of totalitarian regime and its collapse. For individuals and society, one-party ruling’s struggles and the rise-and-fall will bring periodic destruction. Such a dynastic periodic law can only be broken by the democratic multiple party system.

Fourth, the political system with multiple parties’ competition will become the tool for encouraging more political participations of the voters, and will become the tie connecting government and citizens. It will help human beings (born social animals and naturally political animal) fully realize their values. The ultimate value of human society is to transcend the greediness of a tyranny government and achieve the spiritual satisfaction and the freedom of people’s minds. CCP’s "one-party dictatorship" has formed "Wu Dalang shop phenomenon" and reverse phase-out of the "Gresham's Law", which have blocked the channels for the citizens to participate in politics and have suppress or even eradicate the citizen’s desire to take initiatives in realizing self-value and participating in the creation of history. This becomes the obstacles to historical development of China. Compared with all the people in the world who enjoy the freedom to vote (for example, India's 600 million voters who have just exercised their rights to elect the Parliament and the Prime Minister), the Chinese people, under the Communist dictatorship, have always been in crippled and paralyzed political position. On the contrary, a new class has formed by officials who rely on "eating party food” throughout their lives. They will be further evolved into powerful oligarchs. The sole purpose of their seizing the power and manipulating the power is to holding the benefits brought by their power permanently.

Finally, the most fundamental guarantee for social, political and economic justice is the independence of stakeholders, fair judgement standard and “the judges”. CCP’s "one-party dictatorship" in essence is actually the logic for empire world with all the stakeholders, judgement standard and “the judges” under its full control. Then social justice and fairness can’t be maintained; they are not even in existence. Hatred, violence, panic, and lie are the spell for CCP’s ruling. The collapse of the basic value leads to the cynicism and criminalization of the whole society. This is the disaster imposed by CCP at the moment.

So, if we say the fundamental interests of the Chinese Communist Party's one-party system is to serve the ruling party itself, the opposition party’s contribution is beyond party’s interest because it provides numerous public goods and community services.

Undeniably, even in a democratic party system, each party will also pursue its own interests. However, multi-party competition and mutual supervision between the ruling party and the opposition party are bound to generate public benefits. The birth of DPC National Committee is to realize this public benefits rather than just replacing and copying CCP's logic. DPC is committed to achieving and implementing a new set of political governance logic, which is that the political system is designed for the people to rule the country and that the policy is for the people to derive benefit from. Political parties are just to represent people’s demands and achieve people’s expectations. Establishing a competitive democratic political party system is the first step breaking out of the blind alley set up by CCP. The Democratic Party of China National Committee dares to take the lead in guiding the Chinese people to take this historic and critical step.

Part IV: DPC’s organizational strategy and action plan for the future

CCP’s ruling has entered the sunset phase: its ruling elites have become insane without common sense, ethics and morals. Chinese people’s protests against the regime from all angles openly and secretly are calling for the emergence and guidance from a democratic revolution organization, democratic leadership, and systematic democracy theory. Proving organization and theory as well as thoughts and actions naturally became the historical responsibility of DPC National Committee. As the French political philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville put it, "political association is the most difficult art." We democrats are facing the same daunting challenges. How to successfully build, improve and develop our organizational system becomes critical for China's democratic revolution.

China has vast territory and large population, and China are facing the issues of ethnic complexity, and the long-term resistance to the CCP’s ruling in various forms. At the same time, the Communist Party has been brutally and vigorously suppressing the democratic party movement through widespread penetration and destruction. These two factors determine at the present stage that DPC are facing difficulties to establish a unified framework for national and global organizations. Therefore, in DPC’s first Special Congress, we abandoned the Leninist principles of "democratic centralism", based our party structure on the principles of freedom and openness, and set up the qualifications for joining our organization, such as accepting democratic ideals and doctrines. Moreover, the nature of the future of democratization also determines that Chinese society will appear a power structure and governance model with characteristics of multi-centers and multi-layers. To oppose the Communist dictatorship and to better prepare for the peaceful transition from the Chinese democratic revolution to a democratic constitutional system, Chinese democracy revolution will inevitably be aggregating into one after the initial phase of being pluralistic, multi-layer and multi-center. Quoting French philosopher Gilles Louis René Deleuze and Felix Guattari, we need to build "one thousand resistance plateaus", and then all of these decentralized democratic movements will be aggregated into "a large bamboo-root network system."

DPC National Committee is aware of its historic mission which is to lead the Chinese democratic revolution, so we will promote innovation, establish a model through action, high quality, experience, energy and charisma to appeal, encourage, support, and ally with other democratic movements and organizations. At the current stage, we will remain in alliance with all the democratic movement organizations, groups and political parties to form partnerships, while improving and expanding our organizational platform. We will do a better job in a democratic mobilization, enlightenment and the theory construction of democratic and constitutional system. We will actively carry out grassroots movement and the anti-Communist network movement at home and abroad. We will use and create the opportunity to set off social movements and democratic revolution. As democratization approaching, we will promote and participate in the opposition roundtable, play a leading role to complete the constitutional democracy, ensure the completion of democratic transition, and maintain the stability of democratic system. In the framework of democracy, we seek to establish a national political party structure to facilitate governance through participating in and winning the election.

At the initial phase after the establishment of DPC National Committee, we are pursuing a peaceful, rational and non-violent principle of promoting and completing Chinese democratic transition. However, CCP has been in the mentality of leave-things-to-chance, refusing to conform to the historical trend, and refusing to take the initiative in political transition. Today, the CCP has been struggling deeper and deeper in the dead corner of history, almost having wasted the last chance of its magnificent turn given by the Chinese people and history. Here, we would also like to reiterate that “drop one's cleaver and become a Buddha—achieve salvation as soon as one gives up evil." As long as Xi is willing to follow Chiang Ching-kuo’s example and launch a top-down initiative to promote China democratic transition, we will welcome it and encourage the action. We will accept and encourage any communists who hold a reborn and sincere willingness to overt to or covertly support and join the democratic movement. At the same time we must solemnly warn those sinful communist member and officials who continue sticking to their wrongdoings and help a villain do evil: since the road toward rational, peaceful and gradual democratic transition has been block by you, promoting democratic revolution would be our only choice. All the evil sins committed by you to the Chinese people and the Chinese various ethnic minorities would be recorded in history. We reserve the right of conducting backtracking investigation on the wrongdoings of the Communist Party and its officials. You will not only have to face trial and punishment of justice in the future, you and the party that you have been loyal to will also be permanently nailed on the history’s pillar of shame .

As for China’s short-term development, in theory, we believe that CCP's ruling has almost come to an end, whose collapse is inevitable. CCP’s death bell is knelling and China has become increasingly closer and closer to the realization of democracy. But we also clearly aware that what DPC is confronting is the largest authoritarian political party in the history that hold and control a country with the world's largest population and the second largest economic entity. CCP has been continuing and will continue to abuse the resources of the Chinese people to persecute, destroy, discredit, suppress the democratic movement, especially focusing on strengthening the attack and damage on DPC National Committee, even resorting to physical harm, prison torture and having-people-disappeared on the Democrats. But our Democrats who have experienced numerous setbacks and who are still holding on democratic believes have become stronger like steels after numerous struggles. With the courage and spirit of fearless, no regrets, and selfless, in practice, we will continue to stably mobilize people, deepen enlightenments, participate in social movements, fight for the people, seize opportunities and make history. We will launch a democratic revolution and win the victory of democratic revolution to accomplish the final breakthrough of Chinese democratization! This is the opportunity reserved for all the Chinese people by the world in the twenty-first century, an opportunity for the Chinese people to complete self-liberation and achieve historical greatness! To this end, we the Democratic Party of China National Committee make the following vows:

Overthrow Chinese Communist Party’s tyranny,

Establish a constitutional democracy.

Safeguard freedom and fairness,

Dedicate to serving people honestly and ethically.

 

Viewing today as a new starting point, we should work together, endure humiliation to carry out an important mission, and make sophisticated efforts to stride toward our great goal of realizing freedom and democracy in China
