China Fears Intellectuals

Posted by Author on May 17, 2011

Beijing is now said to have problems in the balance of the economic growth and social stability, and it is not the protests from farmers, authorities worry about, but from well-educated middle class. When facing crackdown and entice from CCP (Chinese Communist Party), intellectuals need to carefully weigh out their social responsibilities.

German Development Institute fellow Doris Fischer wrote for Times 『Beijing』s Panic Of Intellectuals.』 She said that CCP followed two guidelines, the social stability and the economic growth, trying to find the balance in between.
Fischer said that the Tiananmen Incident of 1989 was caused by the imbalance of the two, as intellectuals were in dissatisfaction. Lately, inflation was increasing, individuals were affected, and arbitrary arrests are ubiquitous. It is apparent that the long stable balance is becoming uneven.

Fischer thinks that intellectuals became empowered and if they stood up to oppose, along with laborers they could shake the entire social system. She deems that this is what worries CCP the most, though the small number of those in opposing state.

Former Bijie Daily reporter Li Yuanlong suggested that dictators are in fear of intellectuals. He said dictatorships were built upon intrigues and schemes, such as information blockade and lies by all means to maintain their rule and interests.

Li Yuanlong: “Notwithstanding the silence, Chinese people are unhappy with CCP』s ruling, and are eager for democracy. Due to the underlying CCP』s repression, powers are accumulating and though invisible they will eventually come out. Democracy will fall upon China one day, and I believe this day is not too far away.”

According to official CCP data, 550,000 are labeled as being rightist, but newly released Decrypt Files show that 4.61 million intellectuals are labeled as rightist or mid-rightist, and tens of thousands were killed and sentenced. Today, the ubiquitous illegal detentions, imprisonments and biased sentences are repetition of the past.

Li Yuanlong: “CCP either persecutes intellectuals by jailing them, or bribes them by establishing associations, such as Writers Associations or Literary Federations, giving them jobs and paying them for party propaganda, that』s why Chinese intellectuals become polarized.”

The retired Shandong University professor, Sun Wenguang who is persecuted for a while now, said that CCP created political campaigns to repress intellectuals, so they become frightened and get use to being silent.

Sun Wenguang: “To change this situation, individuals have to assume more responsibilities and do more under the permitted conditions, having a sense of mission.”

Sun Wenguang urged all Chinese intellectuals to be fully aware of their identity and historical mission.

Sun Wenguang: “I hope Chinese intellectuals can ponder further about the future of society, the state and the people. Individuals can play critical roles if they position themselves correctly and act accordingly.”
