During the Wang Lijun and Bo Xilai incidents, many facts have surfaced, and ordinary Chinese people have seen how ruthless Bo has been during his “singing the red and hitting the black” movement. Bo and Wang have been especially cruel in their persecution of Falun Gong practitioners through live organ harvesting.
While people are celebrating this thought, they may also think about this question: Without the CCP, will China become chaotic?
In order to answer this question, we must first clarify two things.
First of all, ethnic Chinese descendants are not willing to engage in turmoil, unless forced to do so.
China has a history of 5,000 years before the CCP took control. Within its traditional culture, Chinese people valued high morals such as tolerance and honesty. This cultural heritage was deeply rooted in Chinese people’s daily behavior and has flowed in their blood for thousands of years.
Chinese people are hardworking, law-abiding citizens. They won’t engage in large-scale public uprisings or resistance unless it’s a matter of survival forced upon them by the officials.
For example, when officials took farmland in the village of Wukan and representatives of villagers were killed, a peaceful protest was triggered afterwards.
In addition, the modest Chinese people are peace-loving, and they will endure whatever they are able to. But, even if they can’t go on, they won’t fight back. They would rather harm themselves, like the villagers who set themselves on fire while standing on top of their soon-to-be-demolished houses, in order to fight for their rights. But these tragic acts don’t get any kind of sympathy from officials like Zhou Yongkang and his likes.
Secondly, who is really causing social unrest in China currently?
The answer is the CCP. Why would one say that? By examining the history of the CCP, we can clearly see that wherever the CCP is, people suffer.
Since 1949, the CCP has initiated many shocking events that are behind the continuing social unrest throughout China today. From the “Great Leap Forward” people’s commune of 1958, which was a plan to transform China into a modern communist society, to the present-day persecution of Falun Gong, 80 million unnatural deaths have occurred during peacetime, which is more than the total casualties of the two World Wars.

Wouldn’t you say that the CCP is the real reason behind the social unrest in China today?
The theoretical foundation of the CCP is unrest. Class struggle is not only talked about once a year, but every month and every day. Mao Zedong proposed that a political revolution should happen every seven to eight years, killing a crowd of people. It takes the violent actions of one class to overthrow another class.
The CCP came to power relying on the barrels of its guns, thus destroying 5,000 years of traditional culture. Its ruling by super dictatorship is not legitimate and is unpopular with the people. So, the CCP is always worried about being overthrown either internally or externally.
There are some examples for China to follow in international society today. The people of the former Eastern Europe and Soviet Union have a better life after abandoning the Communist Party. There is little unrest.
So, it looks like China won’t become chaotic without the CCP. Instead, there will be social stability, and people will live a prosperous and happy life.
Without the CCP, the initiator of the unrest and the autocratic system in China, Chinese people can actually have a peaceful life and enjoy the freedom of a democratic society. Why would there be unrest in China?
