The Chinese Regime’s China Dream
October 1 is the 64th anniversary of the Chinese Communist
Party’s (CCP) establishment of the Peoples Republic of China.
In an editorial from a CCP media outlet, “the dream"
was mentioned nine times.
Chinese Premier Li Keqiang also mentioned achieving
the great rejuvenation of the China dream.
The editorial said that the CCP’s dream is totally opposite
from that of the Chinese people.
Now, the public’s illusion towards the CCP has disappeared,
so it can only play on the national dream to fool people.
On September 30, People’s Daily published its editorial
entitled, “To Dream of Modern Chinese Cohesion Forces,"
which stated that Chinese people have never been so close
to a dream of national revival.
The word “dream" appeared nine times in the editorial.
Some netizens said what the CCP has is nothing
but a daydream.
Zhu Xinxin, former editor of Hebei People’s Radio, believes
that revival of the nation’s dream is only the packaging
for the CCP to mislead people.
Hu Xinxin: “As far as the CCP is concerned, it has realized
the public has given up their cult-like worship of Mao
and their devotion to the Party, so they can only rely on
the national dream to deceive people."
On September 30, Li Keqiang mentioned, during activities
organized by the State council, to achieve the great
rejuvenation of the China dream with persistence.
Zhou Xinxin: “Under the CCP rule, Chinese people are
very clear that what the CCP has done can neither represent
the ideal of a nation or a state, nor the dream of the people.
What the CCP has done is entirely for a one-party rule,
one-party dictatorship, and the privileged existence of a few people."
Since Xi Jinping took office, he brought forth his vision
of the so-called great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
In March 2013, Xi mentioned his China dream nine times
at the closing of the National People’s Congress.
The CCP’s media editorials claimed that currently, all aspects
of China’s society is showing inspired confidence
and power regarding fulfilling the China dream.
However, Liu Yinquan, US-based historian, pointed out
that recently the CCP wantonly suppressed Internet freedom,
human rights activists and religious groups, so no one
believes it when it mentions the national dream.
Liu Yinqiuan:" They are at the end of the rope.
It’s a dead end and no way out.
They mention neither reform and opening nor political
Deep down inside, they wanted to go backwards
to the Mao era, but they are afraid to utter it.
Thus, they can only take a China dream to mislead people."
In recent weeks, many Internet critics were arrested.
Deutsche Welle said that the CCP considered these people
a threat to its power to control speech.
Many well-known bloggers were forced to show their faces
Is the Internet Cultural Revolution coming near?
On September 10, the CCP announced new judicial
interpretation, in which people who spread fabricated information
can also be convicted.
When people publicize their jokes online, they are also
liable for their postings.
Zhu Xinxin: “People can see, from their personal experiences,
as long as the CCP exists, China’s dream
and the people’s dream will move further apart.
The CCP’s dream is entirely different from that
of the Chinese people.
The CCP’s dream serves as a means to maintain
its one-party dictatorship."
On the Eve of 2013, Guangdong’s Southern Daily published
its editorial to promote the China dream,
which turned into a nightmare.
In the end, the editorial had to change its title to,
“Home Country Dream."
Zhu Xinxin: “Today is a national holiday
for the establishment of our country.
As ordinary citizens, we should properly reflect the history
of the CCP and break away from it.
We will not be fooled by its publicity, but we should look
at the trend.
Without freedom, democracy, and constitution,
the China dream will be impossible to achieve."
Netizens in Mainland China have created their own
China Dream on the Internet, expressing the voice
of the people and pointing out where the Chinese people’s
dream truly lies.
China dream is not a dictator’s dream, not a one-party dream,
not a covering up dream, and not a corrupt official’s dream.
China dream is the people’s dream, a democratic dream,
a constitutional dream, and a making-ordinary-citizens-rich dream.
