CHINA—Gu Wanjiu, a freelance writer from Chongqing City, China, states proudly that he quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) on March 22, 2007. The number of people quitting the CCP and its related organizations is now over 20 million. Gu said, “Judging from all the signs, the CCP is just a mindless clown. I don’t want to be part of the clown, so I quit the organization.”
After graduating from Zhengzhou Air Defense College, Gu, 49, became a public servant of the Banan District Tax Bureau in Chongqing City, Sichuan Province and a member of the Chongqing Writers Association. At present, he is a columnist for the Web site “Fire of Liberty.” He started to write in 1988 and since then has published nearly 20 books.
Request Denied Without Reason
Gu was invited to work abroad and applied for early retirement. He handed in his applications for early retirement and for going abroad at the same time. Although his early retirement application was immediately approved, his application to go abroad was rejected. Since the authorities did not offer any reason prohibiting him from going abroad, Gu appealed to the court and the intermediate court. But the authorities maintained the original decision.
Gu wrote in his declaration to quit the CCP, “This Marxist and Leninist based party can only ‘deceive, censure and punish people.’ These three tricks serve no use and the CCP is incapable of doing anything else. So I insist to quit the Party.” Gu said that the number of people quitting the CCP is on the rise.
After Gu retires, he wants to teach in an Internet college on human rights in China. He has written academic works on the subject, but they were forbidden publication in China.
‘Heaven Will Eliminate the CCP’
Gu said that everyday people are really disappointed with the CCP. People who still support the CCP will not be able to save it from its demise. Protecting and prolonging the days of the CCP is assuring trouble for oneself.
Some people worry about China’s future after the CCP is gone. Gu thinks that since the members of the CCP are all Chinese people, won’t the Chinese people live better by getting rid of the ideology and culture of Marxism and Leninism? Gu said, “I know that China will become a better place without the CCP.”
