Unlike the previous group of wealthy people who have made huge sums of money in China, they are loyal to the CCP to survive. Private entrepreneur Sun Dawu is suffering in the CCP’s prison. On July 28, 2021, Sun Dawu was sentenced to 18 years in prison and a fine of 3.11 million by the Gaobeidian Court of Hebei Province on 8 counts of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” and “disturbing public stability].” He insisted that he was not guilty in court and said that “you will be on the trial bench for the accused in the future.”
Sun Dawu is recognized as a conscientious entrepreneur. He has done a lot of charitable deeds, setting up schools for education, and built roads and bridges.
In 2000, Dawu Group already had 16 factories. There are hospitals, schools and other supporting facilities to provide all the life needs for 1,600 employees and their families. Employees and villagers can go to the hospital for only 1 yuan a month; a full set of examinations including Ultrasound, and blood tests only cost 10 yuan; the school that has invested more than 30 million yuan is better than the office building of Dawu Group, even more luxurious. The average monthly living expenses of a student is only more than one hundred RMB.
Sun Dawu’s friend and Shenzhen entrepreneur Wang Yingguo once told The Epoch Times that Sun Dawu has a philosophy of doing things for people. His philosophy is to create more welfare for the society and the people. But the more Sun Dawu works for the people’s welfare, the more he becomes a thorn in the eyes of the CCP government.
Epoch Times columnist Wang He said that Chinese people have always had some hard bones and national backbones, and there are such people in the corporate world. “The CCP used to destroy them in the process of reforming. After China’s opening up, the CCP has loosened its restrictions and the national vitality has been revived. That’s why people like Ren Zhiqiang and Sun Dawu could come out. Such people are not unique, but it is difficult to gather together and form a kind of force. Basically, in their respective environments, they do things according to their own conscience and express opinions and commons on current affairs.”
Some entrepreneurs were drawn into the mechanism by the CCP, serving as deputies to the National People’s Congress, members of the CPPCC, and members of the CPPCC Standing Committee and vice chairman of the CPPCC. But Wang He said that some entrepreneurs try their best to keep a certain distance from the CCP.
” Something like Jack Ma said, what am I with the government? Just fall in love without getting married. Jack Ma’s grandfather has been tortured by the CCP. His family knows what the CCP is all about.”
“Some entrepreneurs I have contacted still have democratic ideals. However, the CCP monitors them very strictly and it is difficult to speak out.” Wang He said.
People praised by Mao Zedong and Xi Jinping suffered bad luck
In the Mao Zedong era, private entrepreneurs used to be called national capitalists and private capitalists and suffered miserably.
After the CCP seized power in 1949, it carried out the so-called “socialist transformation”-the three major socialist transformations, including agriculture, small industry and andicrafts makers, and capitalist industry and commerce. Starting in 1952, the first attack was aimed at private capitalists.
In Shanghai, many private capitalists had chosen to commit suicide because of intimidation and humiliation during the CCP movement. According to incomplete statistics in Shanghai, from January 25 to April 1 in 1952, 876 people committed suicide for this reason, and the average number of suicides per day was almost 10 or more. Xian Guansheng, the founder of Guanshengyuan Co., Ltd., died on April 21, 1952 when he jumped from the upper floor of the Guanshengyuan he built. He was 64 years old then.
But Chen Yi, the mayor of Shanghai at the time, listened to the secretary’s report every night and asked leisurely and humorously, “How many paratroopers are there today?” This meant asking how many capitalists jumped off the building that day.
In the summer of 2020 in the era of Xi Jinping, a symposium for entrepreneurs was held in Beijing. In his speech, Xi commented that from Zhang Jian in the late Qing Dynasty to the beginning of the Republic of China, Lu Zuofu and Tan Kah Kee during the Sino-Japanese war, Japan, till Rong Yiren and Wang Guangying after PR China, they were all models of patriotic entrepreneurs.
But Xi Jinping did not mention at all the tragic fate of private entrepreneurs who were persecuted to death by the CCP.
- What is Xi jingping up for?
Chinese entrepreneurs are experiencing ups and downs. Xiao Jianhua of Tomorrow Group and Wu Xiaohui of Anbang Group are representatives of the wealthy people involved in the transfer of the interests of the CCP’s powerful families, while Sun Dawu of Hebei Dawu Group and Ren Zhiqiang, the former chairman of Huayuan Group, who was the second-generation of red-blood family, was punished. And many people believed that they were convicted due to their speaking out.
Since the authorities proposed to achieve ” prosperity together” and the “3rd time distributions” of wealth in mid-August this year, accompanied instantly by the donations of the rich in China, the CCP official media and overseas pro-CCP media have from time to time touted that CCP China will enter A new era to achieve prosperity together.
Wang He said that Mao Zedong grasped the power in China and his socialism brought the national economy to the brink of collapse. Deng Xiaoping carried out reform and opening up, and let some people get rich first, but all those got rich were either families in power, or people with background, or unscrupulous people. They got rich first, which led to the huge gap between the rich and the poor and corruption in the whole society. Under such circumstances, Xi Jinping wants to establish his historical position. The difference between his new era and the Deng Xiaoping era lies in his slogan ” Prosperity together.”
“Deng’s reform and opening up has entered a dead end, and Xi now wants to sustain the rgime of CCP. He is to return to Mao era in form by promoting “prosperity gogether”, and then in policy, China will be in the restoration.”
Hu Ping believes that the authorities are now trying to suppress super-large private enterprises in the name of anti-monopoly to prevent them from having too much power, so they will lose their right to speak and their influence in the society.
Taking Jack Ma as an example, “Because he has become a symbol of Chinese private entrepreneurs, the authorities will not knock down Alibaba, nor will Jack Ma be arrested. Alibaba may be split and reorganized, restrict his activities so he won’t be so active as he used to be in the past, but from time to time he got to appear in public to prove that he is still a free man.”
One goal Xi Jinping wants to achieve is to strengthen the CCP’s control over private enterprises.
Commentary：There is one article on Gnews/Gettr/GTV on 100 years CCP review. It has been a disaster to China and the world for over a century and the CCP has committed numerous crimes，among them, mass murderer is just one. This article gave us a glimpse of the latest on-going such crime on private entrepreneurs. In fact CCP has applied its crimes to the world long before.
Bear in mind that all the Chinese private entrepreneurs home and abroad are actually the white gloves of a few top families of CCP kleptocracies!
Since all the private entrepreneurs are CCP’s whiteglovers, their fate were doomed, but meanwhile CCP used them to bring down the world economy. Bear in mind, especially Wall Street elites, Miles Guo just revealed on the broadcast yesterday, that in March 2020, Jack Ma, while as the CEO of Alibaba, a listed company in America, was held for criminal investigation by the CCP. Did SEC or Wall Street inform the public and shareholders of his criminal investigation?
