A Human Rights Lawyer Lifts the Communist Party’s Spell

A Human Rights Lawyer Lifts the Communist Party’s Spell
   Teng Biao completely renounces the Chinese Communist Party
   
   By Teng Biao
   September 28, 2017

   
   
   On March 14, 2016, at the UN’s Palais des Nations in Geneva, I joined a forum to commemorate the second anniversary of the death in custody of human rights defender Cao Shunli. I couldn’t help but vent my anger at what a criminal gang the Chinese Communist Party is.
   
   The same day I received the following email: “Teacher Teng: As ratified by the law school’s Communist Party committee, the Chinese University of Political Science and Law’s (CUPL’s) Party branch will on March 16, 2016, at 2:00 p.m. hold a general assembly on campus in Room 211 to reach a decision on the question of Teng Biao’s voluntary resignation of Party membership. You are hereby requested to attend.”
   
   The note was signed by “Party Committee of the Chinese University of Political Science and Law, Legal Studies Party Branch.”
   
   I didn’t attend the meeting, but I now feel the need to give the Communist Party a piece of my mind.
   
   Most Peculiar Creatures on Earth
   
   Almost every child born in the so-called “New China” is full of boundless enthusiasm and worship for the Chinese Communist Party. As the official propaganda would have it, in all emergencies and matters of life and death, it’s always Communist Party members who rush to the fore.
   
   Those who save the children on the train tracks, those who go to silence the enemy guns during combat, those who drown themselves to safeguard national assets—even if they’re not Party members, on the verge of death it will be revealed that they had written out a pledge that they had wanted to join the Party. Or if no such pledge can be produced, they’ll be posthumously recognized as Communist Party members.
   
   This brainless, crazed enthusiasm for the Communist Party isn’t inculcated in a day or two. This has been a process requiring the assiduous efforts, passion, and imagination of countless authors, engineers of the soul, political commissars, historical fabulists, visual propagandists, musicians, and brainwashed parents.

   Members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) are among the most peculiar creatures on earth. They are said to grasp the truth of the universe, the laws of history; they possess the ultimate ideals of mankind; and they are determined to establish heaven on earth.
   
   They never seek to benefit themselves, but always to help others. They fear neither gods nor karmic retribution. They’ll kill their own family members if “justice” demands it. They all think with a single mind, and every Party member is an incomparably pure and innocent saint.
   
   The moment a bad element sneaks into the Party, they’ll be expelled—this is what guarantees the Communist Party’s purity and advanced nature. Every time the Party makes a mistake, it simply turns out to be proof that the Party has an extraordinary ability at self-correction and stands as a testament to how the Party is “great, glorious and correct.” And this is why we know the Party so loves to make mistakes.
   
   Joining the Party
   
   I myself am an exemplar of the CCP’s system of education (or brainwashing). From primary school to middle school to when I matriculated at Peking University, I was always the most obedient student. I never contradicted my teachers, I never cut class, I always got good grades. My ideals were Party Red, and I had a pile of certificates and awards. In other words, I was almost ruined. I had never used my own mind to think.
   
   The process of escaping this state of brainlessness was arduous, complex, and subtle. It required an understanding of the psychology of totalitarianism, the genealogy of propaganda and brainwashing, educational anthropology, social epistemology and political aesthetics. What affected me most personally were Peking University, some professors, some student friends, some books, some underground films, and a number of incidents I went through.
   
   In elementary school and middle school, only the “most outstanding” students were allowed to enter the Young Pioneers and Youth League. Those who were backward in their thinking were left out. At university, the competition to join the Party was fierce, and I gave up on it. During graduate studies, the competition wasn’t as intense, and in fact there weren’t many “lagging elements” who hadn’t joined.
   
   The Party Branch had me write an application letter, the meaning of which I apprehended fairly quickly: first, they wanted to see you express your trust in the organization. Secondly, they thought: You’re Peking University talent, so if you don’t join the Party and serve the Party, have you got a problem with the Party? Who are you serving?
   
   I was half willing and half doubtful. At that point I was in the stage of my rapid awakening to the world, and I already loathed and felt estranged by the Party’s organizational form, speech style, and dogma. On the other hand, I’d never met anyone who joined the Party because they actually believed in it.
   
   In two years I’d be out looking for work, so joining didn’t have any disadvantages, nor did I need to take it as a big psychological burden. And at the time I also harbored a rather naive thought: intellectuals in the 1980s often said that the easiest way to bring down a fortress is from the inside, so to a degree I actually thought that I would get myself into the Party with the noble mission of opposing the Party.
   
   
   So I dug up a Party application template, copied it, and was admitted to the Party. But I was firm that I would not swear the admission oath. There were 40 or 50 new Party members that were to engage in a collective oath-swearing ceremony. The leader said that the TV station would also come, and everyone would go onto the lawn to swear their oaths while it was recorded. I hated the idea and slipped away.
   
   Reform Versus Alienation
   
   I want to address that naive sentiment I had, that joining the Party provides the opportunity to reform the Party, or even oppose it, from the inside. But in fact, the Party’s crimes are far too numerous, it has no will to change, and to this day it’s still going further along down the road to perdition.
   
   I also realized that this Party’s survival mechanisms are adaptive; it has its own essence, and those who don’t go along with it essentially have no chance inside the Party. Anyone who can reach a high rank in the Party either comes from a top Party family, or knows how to pull strings and manipulate people, or is corrupt, or lies, or begs, or kills.

   So there is not only an extremely small chance that a sincere and honest person will reach a high level in this system, but in the process, to use a Marxist term, they will be “alienated.” By the time they’re a bureau chief or a provincial governor, their human nature will have been corroded almost entirely by the Party’s nature.
   
   If you want to be an element in the system, then everything of yours will have come from dictatorship. You will have found it impossible to not get involved in evil on the way up; you won’t be able to escape having safeguarded the Party-state system. And then even if you put up with it all and become a bureau chief or a provincial governor, you still have no ability or opportunity to change the system.
   
   Quitting the Party
   
   My wish to quit the Communist Party arose not long after I joined it in 1997. Anyone with eyes to see would have noticed the following phenomena in society: forced demolitions, torture, black jails, corruption, miscarriages of justice, collusion between officialdom and organized crime, controlled elections, willful slaughter of innocents, forced abortions, religious persecution, literary inquisitions, violent urban enforcers (“chengguan”), secret police, internet censorship, tofu dreg buildings, poisoned milk, contaminated vaccines…
