PREFACE OF THE EXPANDED 2ND EDITION
A Unique Book that Bares the Mystery of the Greatest Era in Chinese History
In more than three decades since China took off, there have been endless predictions on China’s imminent collapse, but none of them materialized. Why? What is the secret of China’s sudden swift and continuous rise?
Shang Yang’s Legal Reform Caused the Sudden Swift Rise of the State of Qin
More than 2,000 years ago, Shang Yang’s legal reform caused the sudden swift rise of the State of Qin as a power without rival. The cream of the reform was encouragement of farming and military achievements. It gives play to Qin people’s talents and diligence.
The reform initiated by Deng Xiaoping and carried on by Zhao Ziyang and Jiang Zemin Was Just the Same as Shang Yang’s
The cream of their reform is to encourage people to become rich earlier than others. It similarly gave play to people’s talents and diligence and thus enabled China to take off.
The Mystery of Deng, Zhao and Jiang’s success in their reform
Reforms seldom succeed in Chinese history as they touch people’s soul and harm their vested interests.
Shang Yang’s reform hurt aristocrats’ vested interests. When the sovereign of the State who supported Shang’s reform, died, Qin aristocrats cruelly punished Shang Yang by tearing him asunder with five carts. Fortunately, the succeeding sovereigns of the State of Qin carried on Shang Yang’s reform to enable their state to keep on growing stronger and finally conquer all other states and unify China.
Deng, Zhao and Jiang’s reform first seriously touched China’s long-standing inveterate tradition of egalitarianism that has become very popular due to Mao Zedong’s vigorous brainwashing. At that time, China was ruled by uneducated workers and peasants who adhered to egalitarianism. Those advocators of egalitarianism fiercely opposed the capitalism that encourages people to become rich.
The hardest part of the reform is to turn the loss-making State-owned enterprises (SOEs) profitable. It required the compulsory early retirement of tens of millions redundant SOE employees who previously had iron rice bowls and the welfare of free medical service, retirement, etc. It touched vested interests on an unprecedented scale.
Jiang Zemin Coup
The Emergence of a New Generation of Talented Intellectuals with Moral Integrity who Wanted to Seize State Power
Mao Zedong understood that where there was oppression, there would be revolt and led the oppressed workers and peasants to seize power and establish his dynasty.
However, he forgot his oppression of intellectuals for two decades from the Anti-Rightist Campaign to the Cultural Revolution will also cause intellectuals to revolt.
Due to the oppression, a new generation of talented intellectuals with moral integrity emerged during the Cultural Revolution, who secretly made preparations for seizing Party and state power in order to achieve the goal of obtaining the basic human right and freedom to be engaged in intellectual activities.
Meanwhile, other intellectuals also wanted to revolt and finally launched the great June 4 Movement (also known as the Tiananmen Protests) that almost overthrew the regime of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The panic given rise to by the Movement throughout CCP forced the conservatives in the Party to accept Jiang Zemin’s reform. The success of reform in turn made intellectuals stronger and enabled them to finally carry out a peaceful coup d’état by the Three Represents and seized Party and state power.
Therefore, we can assert that without June 4, there could not be China’s rise today. The heroes at Tiananmen have made immortal contributions to China’s reform.
Xi Jinping Cyclone: Strive to Carry on the Reform to the Finish
The pursuit of wealth has given play to people’s talents and diligence, but also given rise to the blind pursuit of wealth by evil means resulting in corruption, infringement of people’s rights and interests, environmental pollution, the emergence of lots of toxic food and fake and poor products on the market.
Xi Jinping and others among the youngest of the new generation of talented intellectuals with moral integrity, are conducting a new round of reform with a vengeance mainly focused on economic liberalization in order to give further play to people’s talents and diligence. If successful, the reform will make China the greatest superpower in the world.
This book gives detailed description of the course of reform filled with various twists and turns.
