How Will China Be After Xi Jinping Becomes President?

Xi Jinping Must Declare Political Reforms and Pioneer an Economic Liberalization!

Political scientists predict that Xi will inevitably face challenges to China’s current policies. As China’s economy slows down, unemployment levels are reaching intolerable levels, the gap between the haves and have-nots is widening, and anger over the corruption in the civil service is spreading. Allegations in The New York Times about the wealth of Premier Wen Jiabao’s family are the latest and the most symbolic of the numerous examples of government profiteering.

Instead of squarely facing these issues, China at this point appears to be averting people’s attention by allowing anti-Japanese demonstrations and riots.

Will Xi continue to create expansive policies based on China’s military might and ignore his people’s demands? Or is there any other chance that he will be able to change China’s course for the better?

Below is an alternative scenario that we, at The Liberty Magazine, propose for the well–being and liberation of 1.3 billion Chinese people.

Simulation

In 2020, a democratized China will go from being ruled by people to constitutionalism, transforming from a country where the rules change depending on the intention of the Communist Party to one where there is fair economic dealings and justice, and a multi-party system is recognized.

Foreign companies will once again enter the colossal market of roughly 1.4 billion that has a reduced country risk. It will have made use of the knowledge of developed nations, not only in its traditional manufacturing industry, but also in resolving issues that include the chronic traffic congestion and delays on the railroads that come with urbanization, the worsening water supply and sewerage, and garbage disposal.

The greatest factor in foreign companies returning to China will be the expansion of China’s trading area due to its “transport revolution.”

The linear bullet train introduced with Japanese technology will link Japan with the Korean Peninsula via a tunnel on the sea floor, and connect Beijing, Dhaka in Bangladesh, Delhi in India, Tehran in Iran, Istanbul in Turkey, Berlin in Germany, and Paris in France. Then this southern continental railroad will link up with the Siberian railway that runs through the north, forming a massive loop line.

The idea of this Eurasian continental loop line was conceived first in Japan as the Greater East Asia Railroad prior to China becoming communist in 1949. With the obstacle of being a communist country removed, its actualization came about 80 years late.

In addition, one after another new shipping routes between China and Japan opened with frequent ferry crossings. Employment in various industries has been created in East Asia, a population of nearly 2 billion, due to an intense movement of people, items, money, and information, thus boosting the global economy while involving the surrounding region.

 

The Chinese Are, by Nature, Good at Business

You can see from the well-to-do Chinese expatriates and from Hong Kong and Taiwan that the Chinese are a people who have always been naturally good at business.

For example, Li Ka-shing, the Chinese chairman of Cheung Kong Holdings and Asia’s richest person living abroad with assets worth over 2 trillion yen, immigrated to Hong Kong from the Chinese mainland at the age of 12.

He went from being a factory worker to a factory manager before switching to real estate. At the time of the Cultural Revolution in the 1960s, when real estate slumped, Li Ka-shing snapped up properties with the funds he had on hand, going on to become the biggest private property owner in Hong Kong.

Chiang Kai-shek, who crossed to Taiwan when the Communist Party defeated him in a civil war, also established a reputation in the field of economic policy. In order to begin agricultural reforms, he sold land cheaply to farmers. While he enhanced the desire to produce, on the other hand, part of the land purchased from the landowners was done so with government enterprise shares. So, he succeeded in converting capital held by the landowners from land to industry.

By issuing new Taiwanese dollar bills in currency reforms, Chiang Kai-shek stabilized an inflationary economy in a turbulent period, leading the economy to recovery. If the post-war Chinese mainland had been governed by the Kuomintang, led by the business-minded Chiang Kai-shek, they would have properly actualized the Eurasian continental railroad.

 

“I Want to Create World Peace Without Using a Single Bullet”

The important thing here is the fact that Chiang Kai-shek and Sun Yat-sen, who established the Kuomintang, were both Christian. They were decisively different from Mao Zedong, who believed in atheism and Marx’s materialism.

Currently the Chinese Communist Party is suppressing the freedom of speech and publishing in order to maintain its dictatorship, but a political system is unacceptable that does not respect the root of every person’s freedom, i.e., inner freedom, and the freedom of religion.

In a sermon entitled “The Power of Enlightenment Pioneering the Future” delivered on March 25 in Utsunomiya city, Japan, Ryuho Okawa, founder and CEO of the Happy Science group, touched on Deng Xiaoping’s opening up of China in the area of economics, saying the following.

“Next, in politics, it would be complete if the top announced that they would abolish Marxism and Leninism. Therefore, I would absolutely like Xi Jinping to decide resolutely that ‘China will publicly renounce Marxism and Leninism’ and ‘China will accept the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of publishing, and respect of fundamental human rights as well as accepting of a pluralistic view toward political opinions. China could make such changes to the national structure.”

“I would like to try and create world peace without using a single bullet,” Master Okawa continued.

If China were to become a democracy, which is currently the world’s greatest concern, there would be an astonishing economic growth involving the surrounding countries.

It could be said that Xi Jinping, who should become the next supreme leader of China at a national congress to be held this fall, could lead the world to peace and prosperity without the bloodshed of many. He should quickly notice this, and he should act accordingly.
