Chinese communist party officially bans pomp and circumstance

posted at 9:21 pm on December 4, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

I’ve said it before, and I’ll keep on saying it until such a time as communism finally falls for good: In practice, communism has only ever been about the wealthy and well-positioned maintaining their power and privilege over the meticulously brainwashed masses. Communism is not and never has been about ensuring the happiness of equality, preventing the misery of suppression, and socio-economic justice for all mankind, or whatever baloney it is the regime force-feeds the masses from all sides — the state runs or regulates the media, the schools, the Internet, just about everything over there. Ain’t no income disparity like communist income disparity, and while the city-dwelling members of China’s billion-strong population generally appear fairly materially well-off, the other hundreds of millions of rural peasants living in back-breaking, dirt-scraping poverty are largely kept out of sight.

As I say, the Chinese communist party is all about preserving their cozy little plutocracy — and the only trouble is, people are starting to take notice. Ergo, reports the Telegraph:

Party leaders will no longer be greeted wherever they go with cheering crowds, banners, red carpets and elaborate flower displays, said a statement on Chinese state media after a meeting of the new 25-man Politburo.

The updated rules also ban dull, long speeches and fawning write-ups in the state newspapers, as the party tries to reshape its image.

In recent years, even the lowliest Communist party officials have enjoyed a fin-de-siècle lifestyle, being chauffeured around in luxury cars and greeted by crowds of well-marshalled schoolchildren.

Officials have seemed to compete with each other for who could build the biggest local government offices, offer the grandest banquets – often with specially imported delicacies or food from exclusive farms – and accumulate the most wealth.

Now, after growing criticism at the decadence and arrogance of the party, its new leaders appear determined to make a change.

In the past, Chinese party officials have been all too pleased to take advantage of their prestigious positions to pursue their own wealth and wholeheartedly participate in whatever extravagant displays of self-glorifying jingoism the party had planned that week, but most inconveniently for them, the charade is getting ever more difficult to continue in the growing digital age — and the move to simply eliminate any too-visible signs of excess shows just how desperate the situation is becoming for them. Even their speech-restricting Great Firewall, big-brothering media controls, and many avenues of indoctrination just can’t seem to keep pace with the number of citizens noticing that something’s amiss in communist China.

It is still a Communist dictatorship. Don’t get too excited about media reports of minor liberalization here or catering to public discontent there. Lenin and Khrushchev did the same thing. And the talk of how they show little concern for Marxist principles – not a big deal either. Stalin would twist the meaning of his doctrine to fit the whim of his personality and the sanctity of his oligarchy. Marxist governments are personality and power based, not principle based.

When it truly becomes something else, we’ll know. That will be when they attempt a bit more controlled liberalization, but it will fall entirely out of their control as it did to Gorbachev. Not there yet, but it could come soon. Who would have thought in 1982 that the USSR had less than a decade of holding together? The artificiality of the entire economic and social situation that comes when the people aren’t allowed a full say means that the true size of the bubble and when it will pop can be hidden easily and not show itself until late in the game.

Well, though such is no longer de rigueur in Beijing, we can rest easy knowing that the traditions of the plutocracy will be kept in Washington. As Michelle was once overheard to say, “What’s the use of being The First Lady if’n you can’t flaunt it.” President Obama’s response was, “I won. Again. Go suck it. We’re going to Hawaii, and a lot of other places, too. Four more years, not a lot of time to see the world and everything on Uncle Sugar’s dime.”

coldwarrior on December 4, 2012 at 9:57 PM

Communism and Socialism are easy. You promise the poor that you’ll feed them the rich if they’ll only give you the power to make it so. They of course do, but once you’ve got power you must have the strong man figure to pull the hogs off the trough, that is now yours. This task is only made that much easier because the average leftie has a savior fetish to begin with. Those two reasons are why I believe that the left, no matter which road they take, Socialism, Communism, or some mixture of the two always end up in the same dismal, dank place.

The liberal dingbats and the communists try to sell the idea of socialism like Star Trek where everyone is happy and has no wants or needs because it just is.

Whereas the reality is more like China or Stalin’s USSR where the elites do very well, everyone else is a peasant and just disappears if they take issue with their lot in life.

Don’t tell the liberals that, though. They somehow believe TV is reality and you might make them feel bad.

Sadly, a lot of people don’t understand that even THOSE examples are fantasy lands, propped up willingly, or not by America’s progress. Without stealing massive amounts of intellectual property, China and the Soviet Union wouldn’t have advanced slowly, they’d have fallen backward by decades or centuries. And where would Europe and the Pacific Rim be right now if America hadn’t saved them from themselves?

You want to know the “real” reality? The American experiment didn’t just happen to coincide with the greatest increase in freedom and wealth the world has ever known. When the light goes out here, the rest will go out with it, and there’s no reason to believe anything like this will happen again in the foreseeable future.

logis on December 4, 2012 at 10:35 PM

This story is depressing on many levels. China really isn’t a Communist country today. It’s a totalitarian market economy. They’re turning the place into, essentially, a big corporation. Except that you don’t have the free will to switch jobs, and your penalty for doing a bad job is death or imprisonment. This is a very different model than has ever been tried before. However, it is highly effective economically.

In order to compete, I worry that in the 50-to-100-year time frame (or maybe sooner) the US will shift toward mimicking this model.

Freedom will be dead.

Ultimately, Christian values – combined with a vigorous war power – will help to stave this off.

(And – full disclosure: I am not a Christian. I am not religious. Most of you would probably consider me an atheist. So, in other words, I don’t have an agenda in saying this. It is my honest analysis.)

kim roy on December 4, 2012 at 10:09 PM

Setting aside any political aims of the creator/writers/producers, what made the society of Star Trek, particularly TNG, even remotely utopian was that it was a post-scarcity society. Food and most material goods could be made by way of a replicator, and energy was apparently cheap/easy, and as such goods were not the primary motivating factor, but knowledge and self-enrichment. Nobody had to materially support another, let alone an economic class of freeloaders because anybody with a replicator could do for themselves.

Now as it is sci-fi it is all idealized, but if anything was getting us to a post-scarcity society, it was free enterprise. Food and anything containing matter is/was still decades in the future, but the past decade has seen us move to such a society in regard to information. Think of any song. Now go listen to it. It doesn’t involve owning the CD. It doesn’t even involve piracy. Go to youtube and listen… most everything is on there. Thank you private initiative.

What does socialism get… no innovation as one cannot profit by doing so. No individual drive to excel and better oneself as all who care to do so are busy paying for those who don’t give a crap to work. Energy cost only increases, as red tape keeps us from using what resources we have. Even the free and widespread use of information is stamped out as what cannot be controlled is dangerous to the ruling elites.

With all of the Next Generation era episodes centered around the many possibilities of the Holodeck, Star Trek never really mentions the people that waste their lives on there running porn programs and getting fat while everybody else does the work.* The only reason such would not be a major issue is because those fools are only ruining their own lives, and not acting as a burden on everybody else. Fat chance that ever coming to pass on the current trajectory. As is, Star Trek looks implausible because it never had an episode where she demands Picard provide her for more contraception due to her auxiliary role as ship’s mattress.

*(It almost did. Once. With Lt. Barclay, but Geordi just called him an idiot for being late for duty and he was told to work on his self-confidence or some stuff.)

Some people are catching on to the sad fact that the last nations we freed from tyranny were liberated only after we destroyed their military and a few hundred thousand of their civilians.

Even happier when, as you said, you don’t have to support the freeloaders down the street on top of your family and have the replicator to give you everything you want or need.

Thanks for that – mentioning the replicator as the crux of the argument.

Fascist is what it is becoming.

Private enterprises needing the blessing of the State to get money from crony banks. Banks where prior crony businessmen have walked away from huge piles of debt that, since China doesn’t need to be transparent, never shows up on the books. In a communist systems the workers would just be redeployed to fruitful utility on farms until they were lost forever… the fascists just let them become poor where they are, don’t care for them, make the environment worse and does its best to lower the life expectancy. In both cases the ruling apparatchiks get through fine and dandy.

The big worry for the elites in Beijing is that there appears to be a Maoist revival in at least one province and you have to know that those Little Red Book carrying hotheads probably don’t much like what the elites are doing…. they’ll never tell you that they just want to be the ones handing out the favors…

Again, disturbingly similar to what’s going on here. Most American moonbats are hardcore Communists, so they were a little dismayed to find that Obama is enacting Fascist policies. There’s a little tension but it’s easily kept under control.

Stalin figured it out a long time ago: Fascism, Socialism and Communism are merely slightly different ways of doing the same thing. All that really matters to any collectivist is power.
