Chen Xiaolu, son of Marshal Chen Yi, was born in July 1946 in Shandong Province. Before the Cultural Revolution, he was a graduate of the 1966 high school class of the Eighth High School in Beijing, joined the CPC in 1969, and later served in the army, and was the Deputy Secretary General of the Beijing Society for International Strategic Studies and an independent director of Boshi Fund after he was demobilized.
It was N years ago that I got to know Chen Xiaolu, the 60th birthday of his elder brother Gao from one of the ministries in Beijing, and his elder brother Xiaolu attended the birthday banquet. At that time, I didn't know much about Xiaolu, only that he was Chen Yi's son and Chen Haosu's younger brother, and it was not until he publicly apologized on behalf of the Red Guards to the teachers who were persecuted by the Cultural Revolution that I began to really know him.
A few days ago, Chen Xiaolu, the son of Chen Yi, had his opinions on the discussion in his circle of friends collated and leaked. His views on the current situation have a greater impact and always speak out at critical moments with clear, profound and concise opinions. It is now excerpted for everyone to share:
North Korean authorities test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile again on the 23rd, triggering protests from South Korea and other countries and tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
Chen Xiaolu said that North Korea will not become the next Syria, but the prospect of North Korea may have four scenarios: 1, Kim III (meaning Kim Jong-un, who is the third generation of the Kim family regime in power) died of illness and changed; 2, Kim III was killed and changed; 3, Kim III doggedly jumped over the wall and was destroyed by the U.S. and South Korea; 4, Kim III doggedly jumped over the wall and other people intervened to unite with Russia, the U.S. and South Korea to destroy it, keeping the North-South divide and the CCP's influence on the North, and establishing a The most unfavorable thing for China is the third one. The most unfavorable thing for China is the third one, the first and the second one are the most favorable.
Chen Xiaolu's analysis of the current world situation
Before and after the 18th National Congress, Chen Xiaolu's view on the political situation was a bit more pessimistic than everyone else's, but now he is more optimistic. The reasons are: First, the situation in Europe and the United States is not much better than that of China, while other countries are much more difficult than China; second, the acceptance of the ruling party by the people is not worse than that of other countries. Third, there is no national hostile force in the country. Fourth, after the military reform, military power is centralized to the central government, perhaps not enough to fight externally, but more than enough to maintain stability internally. Fifth, the recent incident of hitting the wall and turning back shows that the leaders still have three wise and three sober. Sixth, the organization and the leader is two different things, the country will not be completely tied to the body of a person. You can not be too pessimistic. I am not as confident as all of you to reflect on the Cultural Revolution, which is a very niche range of things, I have called for the writing of the Cultural Revolution in the eight chronicles, the reunion of 700 people, responding to but three or two people only. Most of my peers chose to forget, and most of the next generation did not want to know. For the mainstream of the party, the Cultural Revolution can be discussed in private, openly and formally restore the history and accountability is to dig up the ancestors' graves, can not be done. If the mainstream does not move, reflection can only be a tributary, the self-expression of an individual or a small group of people, but this is precisely the choice of the individual, as Chairman Mao said, to counter the trend, showing the individuality and human rights.
The current world chaos, to China's economic transformation to create a favorable international environment. Other countries are having a hard time, and they are so self-concerned that they won't move your head, and they don't even want you to be in chaos. Nationals see that others also have problems, strengthening the political identity of the party-state. Use this environment, need to adjust policy, domestic and foreign but can not be a show of strength, we must talk more and the same, less fighting and different, to create a good atmosphere at home and abroad. Now the nerves at home and abroad are too tense.
At present, China is at a crossroads, and the internal and external environments have changed dramatically. On the one hand, the economic slowdown has become a foregone conclusion, and a wave of layoffs may be triggered under the "de-capacitation"; on the other hand, political centralization has been strengthened and ideology has been tightened, which has made intellectuals worry about backtracking; on the other hand, diplomacy is getting rid of biding its light and keeping its head in the sand and focusing on "doing something", and there are tense relations with the United States and some neighboring countries. On the other hand, diplomacy has shifted from biding its time, focusing more on "doing something" and causing tension with the United States and some neighboring countries.
Wu Si, another scholar regarded as a liberal, seemed to be less pessimistic about the current situation in his recent speech in Hong Kong. He argues that farmers now not only pay no taxes but also subsidize their farming, and that hundreds of millions of farmers are highly supportive of the party and have become the backbone of stability. He even believes that after the top leaders take control of power at the 19th National Congress, China will move towards an officially led society with a free economy and limited political openness.
These views expressed by Chen Xiaolu have attracted strong attention from the media, and people can't help but flip back to some of his previous comments, many of which are intriguing.
Chen Xiaolu: The genes of the Cultural Revolution have never been completely purged
Commentary: On October 7, 2013, a special apology was held as scheduled in a tea room opposite Beijing No. 8 Middle School. As the president of the old third class reunion of Beijing No. 8 Middle School, he, together with representatives of the students, apologized "publicly and formally" to the teachers of that year for what they did during the Cultural Revolution, and repaid the debt of many years.
Chen Xiaolu: We have actually apologized on individual occasions, many of our classmates have apologized, apologized to their classmates, apologized to their teachers, and this reflection doesn't start now. I said we set up a reunion why? Why did we set up the Scholarship Fund (a fund to reward teachers)? All of them contain the meaning of repairing such a relationship with such practical actions. So the teachers have long understood us, but there is a lack of a public apology.
As for what other people think, I can't do anything about it. Go your own way and let other people talk, that's the only way. I've never thought of such a report as yours. In the past two days, they all came to interview, I said that there is no way out, you quit who is not good ah, we always have to be good to people ah. Then someone said you were being used, and I said yes, I was being used by the media, and I said you were right, and that's actually what happened.
Chen Xiaolu: Open Letter to the Delegates of the 18th CPC National Congress
Prior to the 18th National Congress, an overseas Chinese website forwarded an "open letter to the delegates of the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC)" by Chen Xiaolu, son of CPC veteran Chen Yi, Zhang Beiying, and four others, in which they called on CPC delegates to fulfill their functions effectively from the point of view of party constitutionalism and thus build a certain degree of internal party democracy.
The report said that the four signatories of the open letter were Chen Xiaolu, Zhang Beiying, Wang Yanjun and Sun Shengli, who claimed to be "several Party members with nearly 40 years of experience", and wanted to put forward a few hopes for the more than 2,000 delegates to the upcoming 18th National Congress, and also suggested to change the tendency of the Party Congress to "go through the formality of the meeting"; to strengthen the supervision of the central leadership bodies and leading cadres; and to bring to the Party Congress the strong desire of the whole Party and the whole nation to curb corruption from the system. At the same time, it is proposed to change the tendency of the Party Congress to "go through the motions" and to strengthen the supervision of the Party Congress over the central leading bodies and leading cadres; and to bring to the Party Congress the strong desire of the whole Party and the whole nation to curb corruption from a systemic and institutional point of view.
