Get used to it: Chinese influence is the CPC’s influence

Another good article in the Global Times concerning the CPC on the international arena, called ‘CPC’s role cannot be detached from Chinese influence‘. As China becomes a global power once again, some countries have begun expressing a close-minded concern about the ‘evil’ effects of the CPC, trying to distinguish between Chinese influence and the role of the CPC.

The catch is that you can’t detach them so. As the article points out:

With its 89 million-strong members, consisting mainly of the elite of different sectors, the CPC is a team representing the backbone of Chinese society. The CPC’s organizing ability, inclusive policies and acceptance of differing ideas, has proven essential to helping the country weather various storms since the CPC’s founding in 1921.

As the CPC continues to lead China’s ascent, the influence of China and the CPC is deeply integrated and one cannot be separated from the other.

The many who work to further Chinese influence at all manner of levels consciously also promote the CPC – they have not been strong-armed into doing so. After all, who does not want the ‘community of shared future’, which is the core of Chinese international engagement.

The more international influence of the CPC, the better, if you ask me.

Footnote: It will continue, as another piece indicates concerning the ‘new mediocre’ in the Euro-American zone, in contrast with China’s thriving.

  1. Dear Prof. Boer,

    With regards to your earlier post about Socialist-Realist literature, are you familiar with the Communist Chinese novel ‘Red Crag’ (1961)?

    And, are you familiar with a novel by Soviet author Vladimir Tendryakov called ‘Assassinating Mirages’?

    The novel’s plot revolves around a physicist’s attempt to analyse History by creating a computer model of it, then removing the figure of Jesus Christ from the equation and studying the differences that result.

    Regards,
    Jackson
