Why is China purging Marxists and Communists from its population?
A let-the-cat-out-of-a-bag story from Time Magazine in 2001 declared that China had already flipped into a Technocracy, leaving Communism in the dust. The article, Revenge of the Nerds stated:
The nerds are running the show in today’s China. In the twenty years since Deng Xiaoping’s [Ed. Note: count backward to 1978 – 79] reforms kicked in, the composition of the Chinese leadership has shifted markedly in favor of technocrats. …It’s no exaggeration to describe the current regime as a technocracy.
After the Maoist madness abated and Deng Xiaoping inaugurated the opening and reforms that began in late 1978, scientific and technical intellectuals were among the first to be rehabilitated. Realizing that they were the key to the Four Modernizations embraced by the reformers, concerted efforts were made to bring the “experts” back into the fold.
During the 1980s, technocracy as a concept was much talked about, especially in the context of so-called “Neo-Authoritarianism” — the principle at the heart of the “Asian Developmental Model” that South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan had pursued with apparent success. The basic beliefs and assumptions of the technocrats were laid out quite plainly: Social and economic problems were akin to engineering problems and could be understood, addressed, and eventually solved as such.
The open hostility to religion that Beijing exhibits at times — most notably in its obsessive drive to stamp out the “evil cult” of Falun Gong — has pre-Marxist roots. Scientism underlies the post-Mao technocracy, and it is the orthodoxy against which heresies are measured. [Emphasis added]
I have stated for several years now that China’s Communists and Marxists would end up being the “useful idiots” of Technocracy, just like they will in America. The radical Marxist left served a purpose – for a time – and now their time is running out.
China is finally starting its purge of Marxists and Communists, as evidenced by the recent headlines in major publications:
- China’s Communist Party is cracking down on a new target — student communists campaigning for workers’ rights. – Business Insider
- Peking University threatens to close down Marxism society – Financial Times (UK)
- No Place for Real Marxists in Communist China – The Diplomat
- The Communist Party’s Latest, Unlikely Target: Young Marxists – NPR
All of these journalists scratch their head as to how strange this seems, but if they understood anything about Technocracy, they would know that Technocracy and Communism have always been natural enemies. They are oil and water or matter and anti-mater to each other. In the end, Technocrats have absolutely no use for anything Marxian.
If you are a Communist, Marxist, Socialist, Leftist, etc., I suggest that you watch your back. Although you have helped them to deconstruct Capitalism and Free Enterprise, the Technocrats will throw you all under the bus when they feel you are not needed any longer. China has already reached that point, and America isn’t far behind.
