Ever since the Chinese Communist Party emerged in China, it has never stopped propagating the rhetoric of “class struggle” among the people. Mao Zedong proposed that “A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another”. At the same time, they began to incite hooligans and proletarians to seize other people’s property by violence. After the Communist Party usurped power and stole the country, it continued to use “class struggle” as a tool to rule the people.
In 1950, the Communists launched the Campaign to Suppress Counterrevolutionaries. Nominally, they wanted to clean up the so-called “reactionary forces” left by the Kuomintang on the mainland, but they wanted to formulate a nationwide plan of action to kill people. During the campaign, many Kuomintang members who had defected to the CCP were killed, and even some of the early CCP agents who had lurked within the Kuomintang were included in the list of the crackdown and executed. During the years of the crackdown, millions of people were arrested and nearly a million were killed. This campaign has been described by historians as the first heinous crime committed by the CCP after the founding of the country.
From 1951 to 1952, the CCP launched the ” Three-anti and Five-anti Campaigns” in the name of “purging corrupt elements within the CCP” and “cracking down on illegal capitalists profiteering.” The purpose of the campaign was to purge the Party of dissidents and at the same time to purge private industrialists and businessmen in economically developed areas such as Shanghai and to nationalize private enterprises. The campaign led to a large number of capitalists and businessmen being forced to commit suicide. According to historical records, an average of a dozen people committed suicide by jumping off buildings every day, and many of these capitalists committed suicide with their entire families.
Now, half a century later, the Chinese Communist Party is repeating the same campaign again. They confiscate and confiscate the property of private entrepreneurs. They classified their political opponents as “class enemies” and used the “class struggle” as a tool for power struggle to bring down their opponents until they were physically eliminated.
