Welcome to our audio series of the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party”. The Nine Commentaries were first published on November 19th 2004 by the Epoch Times, the most widely distributed Chinese language newspaper in the world. This series explores the history and nature of the Chinese Communist Party (the CCP). From its origins stemming from a branch of Soviet communism, the CCP imposed a foreign ideology on China. Traditional Chinese culture maintained strong spiritual values that served as the core unifying principles for China throughout its 5,000 year history. All of this has since been destroyed by the CCP from the time it took control over China in 1949.
Through listening to the “Nine Commentaries”, we will discover how the CCP emphasizes violent struggle against humanity, nature and the laws of Heaven to gain and maintain power, and how it indiscriminately changes its policies with complete disregard for morality, justice and human life. In its 50 years of rule, the CCP has been disastrous for both China and its people. Communist tyranny brought to China an estimated 60 to 80 million unnatural deaths, this number greater than the total deaths from the two world wars, and 13 times that of the Jewish people killed by the Nazi regime.
Since its publication, the “Nine Commentaries”, has been the motivating factor to awaken and inspire over 14 million people to renounce Chinese Communist Party rule. These documented renouncements are made by mainland Chinese citizens choosing to quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliate organizations on a daily basis, averaging 20 – 30,000 people per day. The Epoch Times has noted that as the “Nine Commentaries” continues to spread throughout China, the rate of renouncements is accelerating. It has also sparked much discussion among the international community and has been the main topic of interest and concern in many worldwide forums.
In Part 1a, we heard that deception and lies play a very important role in the CCP gaining and maintaining power. To make history serve the current regime, the CCP has make a practice of altering and concealing historical truth. Alterations of the Chinese historical record have been perpetrated by the CCP for more than 50 years since 1949 and all efforts to restore historical truth have been blocked and eliminated by the CCP. When violence becomes too weak to sustain control, the CCP resorts to deception and lies which serve to justify and mask the rule by violence.
Part 1b: The Communist Party nature replaces and eliminates human nature. All CCP members and those ruled by the CCP must obey commands unconditionally.
In China most people know about the double personalities of CCP members; in private they are ordinary people with human emotions. During the Cultural Revolution, it was too common that fathers and sons tortured each other, husbands and wives struggled against each other and mothers and daughters reported on each other. The CCP places the party nature above human nature, and the fact that Chinese people will act against their inner conscience results from prolonged courses of CCP indoctrination where the concepts of good and evil are arbitrarily manipulated. The Communists Party says it does not allow murder, but it will murder people labeled as “class enemies”.
Benevolence, wisdom and propriety are good, but not when the CCP deems them inapplicable to its motives. The Communist Party overthrows the universal standards for human nature and builds itself on a platform that not only opposes human nature but attempts to transcend it. Karl Marx proclaimed that “in 1848 a specter is haunting Europe – the Specter of Communism.” Over 100 years later this evil specter has spread globally like an epidemic, killing people in the tens of millions and cruelly possessing billions more.
We continue now with the beginning of Part 2 of the Nine Commentaries, “On the Beginnings of the Chinese Communist Party”.
In Part 2a, we heard how in the late 19th century and early 20th century China experienced tremendous external shocks and made many attempts at internal reform. At the extreme point of national crisis and out of anxiety and desperation, China looked beyond its borders for a quick solution to its suffering and allowed the foreign concept of Communism to be established within its borders.
Chinese traditional culture was rejected and the destruction of everything traditional was advocated. By 1949 when the Chinese Communist Party came into full power, of the 13 members of the original CCP congress, only Mao Zedong remained. It is unclear whether the founders of the CCP were aware at the time that what they introduced from the Soviet Union was in reality an evil specter, and the remedy they sought for strengthening the nation was instead a deadly poison.
In Part 2b, we heard that the CCP has 9 malignant inherited traits.
The 3rd inherited trait is Incitement. The 4th inherited trait is Unleashing the Scum of Society. The 5th trait is Espionage. The 6th trait is Robbery. The 7th trait is Fighting. The 8th trait is Elimination. And the 9th inherited trait is Control. All of the previously mentioned traits of the CCP aim to achieve a single goal – to control the populace through the use of terror.
Part 2c: In contrast to what has been claimed as a brilliant history, the CPP when first founded, was just the Asian branch of the Soviet Union.
In Part 2c, we heard that the 1871 Paris Commune was the first communist revolt where the hoodlums and scum of society were unleashed. During the rebellion, they took hostage and shot the archbishop of Paris, cruelly killed 64 clergyman, set fire to palaces, destroyed government offices, private residences, monuments and inscription columns.
The Long March, of which the CCP falsely touts as a victorious anti-Japanese operation, was in reality a retreat to Outer Mongolia. As the CCP marched through the areas where no Japanese troops were deployed, they claimed to be “anti-Japanese” to order to win people’s hearts.
Part 2d: When the Anti-Japanese war broke out in 1937, the CCP did not make much of a contribution to the war against the Japanese at all. Instead they expanded their own base while the KMT did all the fighting on the frontlines.
In Part 2d, we heard that in December 1936, two generals of the KMT Zhang Xueliang and Yang Hucheng kidnapped Chiang Kai-shek at Xi’an, to force him to terminate the civil war against the Communists and establish a united front against the encroaching Japanese. Or, that is what the CCP would like us to believe.
The reality is that Zhang and Yang, although generals within the Kuomintang, had close ties to members within the CCP who directly instigated the coup to get the KMT to cooperate with the CCP again. When the Anti-Japanese war broke out in 1937, the CCP did not make much of a contribution to the war against the Japanese at all. Instead they expanded their own base while the KMT did all the fighting on the frontlines. Later the CCP incorporated the surrendering Japanese soldiers into its own army and claimed to have expanded to be more than 900,000 soldiers.
After the Anti-Japanese war was over, the CCP launched the so-called “War of Liberation” in 1946-49 to overthrow the KMT. During this time the CCP signed the Harbin Agreement and the Moscow agreement with the Soviet Union where preferential mining rights and agricultural products from China’s northeast were exchanged for Soviet military support as well as airplanes, weapons and munitions, thus bringing further disruption to the nation of China in order to seize power.
In Part 2e, we heard that when the CCP was surrounded by the KMT forces, it still conducted internal crackdown operations and executed their own solders to root out the so called “anti-Bolshevik corps”. In northern Shaanxi province, while pinned between the KMT and the Japanese, the CCP began the Yan’an movement and murdered massive numbers of people in a mass cleansing. This pattern of internal rivalry and killing one another in repetitive massacres was expanded by the CCP from small areas to the whole nation and it did not hinder the CCP from establishing its power to rule all of China.
The CCP has a life of its own. The Party runs its officials and not the other way around. When the CCP was at it’s best – and most evil, their highest officials failed in their positions because their personal degree of evil did not meet the standard of the CCP. Those CCP leaders who survived their positions were not those who could influence the Party, but those who could comprehend the Party’s evil intensions and follow them.
We continue now with Part 3 of the 9 Commentaries – “On the Tyranny of the Chinese Communist Party.”
In Part 3a, we heard that the CCP’s philosophy is one of “struggle” and that CCP’s rule has been built upon a series of “class struggles”, “path struggles” and “ideological struggles”. With it’s foundation built upon the philosophy of class struggle, the CCP has achieved is reign of terror by means of campaign after campaign of violent revolution resulting in class genocide.
Land reform was the elimination of the landlord class. Reforms in industry and commerce was the elimination of the capitalist class. Ideological reform was the suppression of all religious faiths. These struggles paved the way for communism to became the all encompassing religion in China.Part 3b: In 1957, Mao Zedong called upon intellectuals to “help the CCP rectify itself”. He promised no reprisals to those who voiced their view. This promise was hollow as Mao’s true intension behind this encouragement of expression was to “Lure the Snakes out of their holes”. This was the beginning of multiple campaigns to eliminate so called rightists. Tens of thousands of people lost their freedoms and were sent to labor camps for forced re-education. Over time, the Chinese intellectuals who traditionally had a great sense of responsibility toward the nation, were permanently silenced.
In Part 3b, we heard how the Cultural Revolution was a calamity unprecedented in Chinese history Conservative estimates place the number of unnatural deaths at 7.73 million. The violence during the cultural revolution was the policy of the CCP and regional governments to turn one group to kill another everyone’s life was in danger. The terror of the Cultural Revolution brought the CCP and Mao Zedong’s “cult of the personality” to climax by compelling people to carry out religious type rituals everyday, establishing communism as the one and only religion dominating the entire country. Not only did the CCP control the state, but the minds of each and every individual was placed into its control.
Part 3c: Utilizing the pronouncements of law, the social institution of education, the vehicle of the media and by implementing policies by coercion, the CCP has been effective in maintaining it’s tyrannical rule. How the CCP controls its people is not limited to the physical torture it inflicts. The Party forces people to lose the ability to think independently.
