In his speech to party leaders from over 100 developing countries on July 6, Chinese leader Xi Jinping claimed that his regime would “manage and shape mankind’s common future,” and people in the world should share the same fate as Chinese citizens.

“The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) insists on making the Chinese people and the people of all countries to have the same destiny,” Xi said. “[The CCP] is progressing the development and prosperity of all countries [in the world].”

China was ranked 129 in its freedom index 2020 by Washington-based CATO institute. Chinese people don’t have free speech, can’t freely access the Internet, aren’t allowed free belief, are monitored by the surveillance system, and controlled by the social credit system.

To protect their lives and property, Chinese people are trying their best to escape China. In the past decades, they form one of largest immigration groups in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and European countries.

Xi gave a 22-minute address at the CCP and World Political Parties Summit video conference on July 6, in which he repeated the CCP’s ambition—to build a community with a shared future for mankind.

“We [the parties] should take the responsibility of guiding the direction [of human development]. [We should] manage and shape mankind’s common future,” Xi said. “We should take high responsibility for [directing] human’s future and fate.”

He emphasized the leading role of the CCP because he believes that the “CCP stands on the right side of history,” but didn’t mention any of the innumerable crimes the CCP committed in China over the past 100 years.

“As a major country and a major party, the CCP will fulfill its responsibilities of enhancing human well-being,” Xi said. “The CCP will actively promote the improvement of global governance, and contribute to the global society of facing the common challenges.”

Xi changed the definition of democracy in his July 6 speech by claiming: “Whether a country is democratic or not, should be judged by the people in the country.” On July 1, Xi claimed that he could represent all of the 1.4 billion people in China.

Xi gave his address by reading from a draft. During the live broadcast, he re-read some sentences at approximately 20 minutes into his speech. One of his staff quickly told him that he had read the wrong page.

After saying, “I have already read this [page]?” Xi jumped to the right paragraph.

“Xi is falsifying the definition of universal values, and trying to kidnap 1.4 billion Chinese people to support his dictatorship to rule the world,” Tang Jingyuan, U.S.-based China affairs commentator, told The Epoch Times on July 7. “Now is the critical moment for the international community to say no to the CCP and stop its ambition.”

Tang said that a large number of people can’t separate the CCP from China and the Chinese people, while the CCP claims to represent both.

“Chinese people love peace, but the CCP doesn’t. Chinese people don’t wish to control the world, but the CCP does,” Tang said. “Xi’s speech clearly delivered his opinion that the CCP wants to lead the world in the near future and control the world in the end.”

“The international community needs to recognize the CCP’s evil and understand clearly that the CCP can’t represent China nor Chinese people. Only then, [will] they [the free world] know how to protect themselves from the CCP’s lies and threats.”
