Rampant Crime Belies China’s Claim of a ‘Harmonious Society’ (3)

Random individuals targeted

To stop such crimes, the criminal’s motive has to be understood. Whether the killings were triggered by unemployment or by forced demolition, these are problems that Chinese society cannot choose to ignore. In his article titled “2009 Forced Demolition File,” Southern Metropolis Daily journalist Tan Renwei writes, “I witnessed an increase in the threshold of news reporting on forced demolitions (below the threshold, the incident would not get reported). Recently, it seems only the self-immolation could trigger media attention.”

But apparently all these have had no impact on the authorities. No proper investigation was done and no action has been taken against any official in China despite the fact that the self-immolation incident seems directly connected to the forced demolitions. If even such an incident could not awaken the authorities, it is not difficult to see why some, in desperation, are driven to such vicious acts.

During the 2008 Beijing Olympics, an unemployed worker from the city of Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province, Tang Yongming, murdered an American tourist and committed suicide by jumping off a building. The “reason” he gave was that only killing a foreigner was likely to draw the world’s attention to problems in China, according to a report from Boxun.com.

It seems apparent that the four attacks targeting innocent school children are a result of a long-term accumulation of hostility, bred by official policies of the regime. From the end of the last century, China has increasingly been turning into a society with no laws. The violent crimes committed by the government in the name of “law enforcement” are no less barbarian than mafia crimes, with people often beaten to death by city administration officials and police.

The land acquisition process in rural areas degenerates into battles between villagers and local armed forces. Forced demolition in the urban areas is met with desperate and violent resistance and is crushed with even greater violence.

Although there have been cases of individuals acting violently against the police and the authorities who put them into misery, in most incidents the piled up resentment and anger seem to have broken out in random acts of violence against susceptible innocents.

A “winner takes all” social structure, formed by a group of degenerated politicians attempting to control all social resources to serve their self interests, is at the root of these problems. Tyranny only fosters mobs. Just as the regime’s political violence seems to have no bottom line, the crimes in today’s Chinese society seem to have no moral bottom line. (END)
