CCP’s Further Step Backwards to the Cultural Revolution

In China Communist Party’s (CCP) China, laws and regulations have always been employed by CCP and its core group to control and govern the people. The rule of law has been interpreted by CCP as codifying the rules to CCP’s wills and applying such codified rules only to the people. As to CCP, they are always and forever above the laws.  On the one hand, CCP’s laws are rife with hallow slogans and ambiguous terms that are subject to further clarification and interpretation, on the other hand, CCP’s laws are never in shortage of explicit and conspicuous expressions demanding the absolute obedience of the people to CCP.

In the absence of such a fundamental principle of democracy as one person one vote, how could CCP establish a government that would advocate the idea of equal justice under the law? Any laws created by CCP in the name of “establishing socialism legal system” are, in substance, its efforts to enslave its 1.4 billion people.

The recently enacted “People’s Republic of China’s Law on Governmental Sanctions to the Public Employees” (CLGSPE) by the 19th Meeting of Standing Committee of the13th National People’s Congress on June 20 2020, which will take effect on July 1 2020, is just another example of CCP’s increasing control over the Chinese people, moving the country further backward to the Cultural Revolution. 

Firstly, CLGSPE has defined a broad range of “public employees” that are covered by these new governmental sanctions law. The purpose is to exert CCP’s control and manipulation over the Chinese people to its maximum extent. The definition of public employees was actually given in a separate law that is relevant and enacted in 2018. According to the Article 15, Chapter III of the Supervision Law of PRC, public employees and relevant personnel consists of following six categories:

  1. CCP officials at various levels of the Party’s organs as well as officials of people’s governments, congresses, standing committees, supervision committees, courts, procuratorates at all levels, officials from democratic party organs, and officials from other organizations or departments;
  2. Personnel engaging in public affairs;
  3. State-owned enterprises employees;
  4. Personnel engaged in management in public education, scientific research, culture, health care, sports and other such units;
  5. Personnel engaged in collective affairs management at basic-level autonomous mass organizations; and
  6. Other personnel who perform public duties in accordance with law. [1]

How many public employees does China have? There is no reliable statistics. According to the number released by China’s government in 2016, there were a population of around 7.167 million public employees in 2015 in China.[2] This number has drawn considerable suspicion from the public and scholars around the world since its release. For example, according to a June 24 2016 report by Radio Free Asia, there were at least around 80 million personnel and staff in China by the end of 2015 that were financially relied upon and supported by Chinese government budget.[3]

Secondly, like almost all of laws codified by the Chinese government, adherence to and loyalty to CCP’s leadership shall be the top priority, though the law was enacted by China’s government legislative branch, the National People’s Congress, for the purpose of applying to public employees, not necessary CCP members, of China. Thus, public employees conducting harmful activities towards CCP will definitely be punished in the forms of sanctions designated by CLGSPE. Article 28 of CLGSPE has listed multiple punishable activities that would challenge the leadership of CCP or run odds with CCP’s operation and management of China. These activities include spreading speech that is harmful to the leadership of CCP; participating in activities in the form of assemblies, protests and demonstrations against CCP; opposing, refusing directly or indirectly to implement CCP’s directives, policies, major decisions and deployments; and joining illegal organizations or engaging illegal activities.[4]

But sanctionable activities do not stop there for CCP. The end of Article 28 sees a broad provision for sanctionable activities that would be considered free speeches protected not only by Article 35 of China’s Constitution[5] but also Article 19 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by CCP’s China government.[6]  Article 28 provides the following:

Those publishing articles, speeches, statements, declarations, and so forth, opposing the nation’s guiding ideology established in the Constitution, opposing the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party, opposing the socialist system, or opposing reform and opening, are to be dismissed.

How could a national legislative body pass such a law that is completely contravention against the nation’s constitution and against the fundamental international treaty the nation promised to enforce at the time of signing the document?

If you realize that CCP has been able to pass this kind of domestic laws on a regular basis, then you should not be surprised that CCP could breach their international obligation today by violating Sino British Joint Declaration on Hong Kong they promised to honor 36 years ago. 

CCP delegation signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at United Nation of behalf of China in 1971; China’s current Constitution Law was first approved by CCP controlled National People’s Congress in 1982; and Sino British Joint Declaration on Hong Kong was signed by CCP in 1984 with its promise to leave Hong Kong’s status unchanged at least from 1997 to 2047……

Today, you have read certain provisions of this newly enacted governmental sanction law. You must have heard and seen what has happened in Hong Kong. Do you still trust CCP? 

It’s just a matter of time that CCP will devastate the free world with its deception and our inaction if we do not wake up and take down CCP. We must act now.
