As Xi concentrates more and more power in his hands, it is clear that Xi wants to rival Mao. Analysis suggests that Xi has begun to inflate his ego.
Recently, a number of internal documents were obtained, revealing that the Communist Party’s Guangxi authorities had issued a notice to set up two “lecture” and “transmission” institutions, which were thought to be to please Xi. Previously, Mao and Xi each accounted for 30 of the 100 quotations from the CCP released by the official media.
As Xi has increasingly centralized CCP power in his hands, official media propaganda suggests that Xi wants to rival Mao. Analysis suggests that Xi has begun to inflate his ego. If Xi continues on the path of Mao and Stalin’s centralization of power, it is extremely dangerous.
Notice on the Establishment of Guangxi’s “Xi Transmission” Agency Reveals the Establishment of “Workshops” Around the Country
The General Office of the CPC Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region Committee issued a notice on July 15, 2018, “on the issuance of the work program for the establishment of “New Era Civilization Learning Centers” (hereinafter referred to as “Learning Centers”) in cities and counties (cities and districts) across the region.
In the section of “Functional Positioning”, it is stated that “New Era Seminar Centers” (hereinafter referred to as “Seminar Centers”) are created in villages and townships throughout the region. The “Learning Center” will strengthen the guidance, coordination, training and services for the “workshops”. At the same time, the party working committees of district organs, universities, enterprises, agricultural reclamation and two new organizations have set up the “Learning Center”.
There are six points in the “Construction Standards” section. For example, in cities and counties (cities and districts), a “learning center” is established, with the party secretary as the center’s director and the propaganda minister and organization minister as deputy directors. The office is located in the propaganda department of the party committee, and regularly study “transmission” matters.
Previously, the General Office of Guangxi has issued the “Notice on the Issuance of the Work Program for Creating “New Era Workshops” in Townships (Towns, Streets) and Villages (Communities) of the Region” on May 5, 2018, which requires the full establishment of “New Era Workshops” in Guangxi. “New Era Seminar”” (hereinafter referred to as “Seminar”). The document also states that “this document is sent to the county regiment level”.
The document reveals that it is “a major and long-term political task” to create “workshops” in townships (towns and streets) and villages (communities) across the region, in order to learn and promote the implementation of “Xi Thought The program is “a major and long-term political task” to learn and implement “Xi’s thoughts”.
In the section of “creation criteria” mentioned six criteria, including site, institution, teachers, system, logo, information.
The Epoch Times reporter checked and found that the establishment of this “workshop” has been reported all over the mainland. The content of the report is similar to the content of this notice in Guangxi.
Li Linyi, a commentator on current affairs, said that the establishment of these two institutions in different places may be a unified action requested by the central government, which is to please Xi Jinping, and also reflects the great power of Xi now. This “New Era Seminar” is used to promote Xi’s speech, which is one of the means to please Xi. The word “Xi” can be interpreted as both “learning” and “Xi”, whether it is “lecture” or “transmission”. The word “Xi” can also be interpreted as Xi Jinping’s surname, which is actually an alternative way to curry favor with Xi.
Another document shows that in 2019, the Chinese Communist Party quietly changed the name of the “Seminar Institute”.
The Epoch Times obtained the “Notice on Adjusting the Name of New Era Workshops” jointly issued by Guangxi Propaganda Department and Civilization Office on Nov. 29, 2019. The notice requires that the name of the “Seminar Institute” in each township and enterprise in the district be adjusted to “New Era Civilization Practice Institute”, and that the name of each administrative village be changed to “New Era Civilization Practice Station”.
Local officials use party history education campaign to tout Xi
On Feb. 20, Xi Jinping’s “Speech at the Mobilization Conference on Party History Learning and Education” was published in the official media of the Chinese Communist Party. On the same day, the CPC Central Committee held a high-profile “mobilization meeting for Party history learning and education” in Beijing.
Subsequently, “Party history learning and education” campaigns were launched across the mainland. The company’s main business is to provide a wide range of products and services to the public. The “traveling guidance”.
From these “experience” can be seen, local officials are using the party history education campaign to tout Xi.
For example, in his experience, Nong X of the Department of Literature and Arts said, “I feel the light of the truth of Xi Jinping’s thought of socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era.”
Xie X, a second-level researcher in the Publication Management Department of the Guangxi Propaganda Department, “General Secretary Xi Jinping’s teachings are long and serious.”
Yang X, Ideological Inspection Office: General Secretary Xi Jinping “sounded the clarion call of the times to lead the whole Party and the whole nation in unremitting struggle.”
Signs that Xi wants to be alongside Mao
Since taking power, Xi Jinping has shifted to the left, centralized power, and revived Mao Zedong’s “Party leads everything” rhetoric.
In April, the People’s Daily, the Communist Party’s media outlet, released a so-called “100 Quotes from the Centennial of the Founding of the Party,” most of which came from the mouths of five generations of Communist Party leaders.
After last year’s Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee, Xi Jinping was branded as the “helmsman” of the party, which has recently attracted the attention of U.S. intelligence.
The Washington Times reported on May 3 that U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency Director Scott D. Berrier said this indicates Xi’s continued consolidation of power and his new status, as “helmsman” is the highest authority title used only by Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong. The title of “helmsman” is the highest authority title ever used by Communist Party leader Mao Zedong.
Previously, Communist Party officials have touted Xi Jinping in glowing terms. For example, in 2016, Tianjin Party Secretary Li Hongzhong called for loyalty to Xi, saying, “Loyalty is not absolute, it is absolute disloyalty.”
In 2019, former Defense Minister Chang Wanquan touted Xi with five prose lines: President Xi’s topsy-turvy historical role holds up a great dream, his wisdom and wisdom lead the way, his revolutionary spirit is enthralling, his overturning of the heavens and the earth to forge new strengths has brought about great changes and vicissitudes, and his touching leader’s sentiments show great love and boundlessness.
At the same time, under the brainwashing of the Chinese Communist Party, some young people in the post-1990s in the mainland are reading Mao’s Selected Works.
Ms. Wang told the Epoch Times that in some universities in Shanghai, they are asked to sing songs praising Xi Jinping, such as “Looking Forward” and “Not Forgetting the First Heart”, when organizing cultural activities.
The reporter found that in the song “Looking Forward”, Xi is replaced by “you” in many places to praise Xi, such as “you lead us to usher in the sunshine of happiness and prosperity”, “follow you, realize the hundred-year dream! “
This chaos of forced glorification of Xi among the people was only seen when Mao Zedong was in power.
Behind the change in the wording of Xi’s speech
In the May 1 issue of this year’s Quyi magazine, Xi Jinping’s speech to a special seminar for provincial and ministerial officials on Jan. 11 was published, and some of the references in the article revealed a new change in Xi’s personal terminology.
According to a commentary in Hong Kong’s Ming Pao, Xi Jinping frequently used the expressions “I propose ……,” “I emphasize…” and “I further emphasize ……” when reviewing the course of adjusting development concepts and ideas after taking office, and the word “I” appears as many as 25 times in this paragraph of more than 1,900 words, which is unprecedented in the public speeches of successive Communist Party leaders.
The article argues that during the periods of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, the party leader rarely repeated or recalled his own instructions or speeches.
Li Linyi argues that Xi’s inflated ego can be seen in these words. But power itself is a double-edged sword, and Xi’s control of all power can also have its drawbacks, namely that his own power is difficult to be limited and difficult to be corrected if something goes wrong.
Overseas online article comments on the failure of all the plans made by the CCP
An overseas article argues that in recent years, Beijing authorities have misjudged a series of major issues, and all the plans they have made have ended in failure.
An article in March last year by “Pinnacle” listed the failure of the CCP’s spy program, the failure of its plan to support Middle Eastern dictatorships, the failure of its trade war plan to bring in the European Union against the United States, the failure of the Asian Investment Bank, the failure of the Millennium Plan for Xiongan, the failure of the trade war, the failure of the expansion of state-owned enterprises, the failure of environmental protection, the failure of waste separation, the failure of the fugitive regulations, the failure of the united war on Taiwan, and the failure of hiding the initial epidemic. Taiwan failure, concealing the initial epidemic failure, big foreign propaganda failure, economic development failure, precise poverty alleviation and development of a moderately prosperous society for all plan failure, China’s industrial 2025 will also fail, the Belt and Road will also fail ……
The article said that the last is the big foreign propaganda, to tell the good Chinese story. But the spy scandal of stolen technology + Xinjiang concentration camp scandal + Hong Kong anti-sending China + live organ harvesting scandal + NBA scandal + scandal of concealing the epidemic and dumping the source not only bankrupt the international credibility of the CCP, but also completely collapse the image of the whole China.
Clayton Dube, director of the US-China Institute at the University of Southern California, told the BBC that a leader with carte blanche or who listens to only a few people may misjudge the situation and increase the risk of instability.
According to an article by current political commentator Wang Youqun, the CCP is already seriously ill, and all the symptoms of its imminent demise are showing up. Xi is unable to think of any high-handed measures to save the CCP from its inevitable demise. Under the enormous pressure of a titanic mountain, he keeps turning to the left, learning from Mao Zedong, returning to the “Cultural Revolution”, and centralizing power, centralizing power, and centralizing power again.
Wang Youqun said that the constant centralization of power means that everything must be managed, but everything must be managed well, and absolute power must lead to absolute corruption. The centralization of power by Mao Zedong and Stalin brought unprecedented catastrophes. If Xi Jinping continues on the path of Mao and Stalin’s centralization, it will be “extremely dangerous”.
