On How the Chinese Communist Party Is an Evil Cult
The collapse of the socialist bloc headed by the Soviet Union in the early 1990s marked the failure of communism after almost a century. However, the CCP unexpectedly survived and still controls China, a nation with one fifth of the world’s population. An unavoidable question arises: Is the CCP today still truly communist?
No one in today’s China, including Party members, believes in communism. After fifty years of socialism, the CCP has now adopted private ownership and even has a stock market. It seeks foreign investment to establish new ventures, while exploiting workers and peasants as much as it can. This is completely opposite to the ideals of communism. Despite compromising with capitalism, the CCP maintains autocratic control of the people of China. The Constitution, as revised in 2004, still rigidly states “Chinese people of various ethnicities will continue adhering to the people’s democratic dictatorship and socialist path under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party and the guidance of Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong’s ideology, Deng Xiaoping’s theory and the important thought of the ‘Three Represents’…”
“The leopard has died, but its skin is still left” . Today’s CCP only has “its skin” left. The CCP inherited this skin and uses it to maintain its rule over China.
What is the nature of the skin inherited by the CCP, i.e., the very organization of the CCP?
******************I. The Cultish Traits of the CCP
The Communist Party is essentially an evil cult that harms mankind.
Although the Communist Party has never called itself a religion, it matches every single trait of a religion (Table 1). At the beginning of its establishment, it regarded Marxism as the absolute truth in the world. It piously worshipped Marx as its spiritual God, and exhorted people to engage in a life-long struggle for the goal of building a “communist heaven on earth.”
Table 1. Religious Traits of the CCP.
|The Basic Forms of a Religion||The Corresponding Forms of the CCP|
|1||Church or platform (podium)||All levels of the Party committee; the platform ranges from Party meetings to all media controlled by the CCP|
|2||Doctrines||Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong’s Ideology, Deng Xiaoping’s Theory, Jiang Zemin’s “Three Represents”, and Party Constitution|
|3||Initiation rites||Ceremony in which oaths are taken to be loyal to the CCP forever|
|4||Commitment to one religion||A member may only believe in the communist party|
|5||Priests||Party Secretaries and staff in charge of party affairs on all levels|
|6||Worshiping God||Slandering all Gods, and then establishing itself as an unnamed “God”|
|7||Death is called “ascending to heaven or descending to hell”||Death is called “going to see Marx”|
|8||Scriptures||The theory and writings of the Communist Party leaders|
|9||Preaching||All sorts of meetings; leaders’ speeches|
|10||Chanting scriptures; study or cross-examination of scriptures||Political studies; routine group meetings or activities for the Party members|
|11||Hymn (religious songs)||Songs to eulogize the Party|
|12||Donations||Compulsory membership fees; mandatory allocation of governmental budget, which is money from people’s sweat and blood, for the Party’s use|
|13||Disciplinary punishment||Party disciplines ranging from “house arrest and investigation” and “expulsion from the Party” to deadly tortures and even punishments of relatives and friends|
The Communist Party is significantly different from any righteous religion. All orthodox religions believe in God and benevolence, and have as their purpose instructing humanity about morality and saving souls. The Communist Party does not believe in God and opposes traditional morality.
What the Communist Party has done proves itself to be an evil cult. The Communist Party’s doctrines are based upon class struggle, violent revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat and have resulted in the so-called “communist revolution” full of blood and violence. The red terror under communism has lasted for about a century, bringing disasters to dozens of countries in the world and costing tens of millions of lives. The communist belief, one that created a hell on earth, is nothing but the vilest cult in the world…….
