“Without Reflection Humanity Cannot Be Recovered”(没&#2 6377;反思 就没&# 26377;人性 的复&# 33487;)
China Youth Daily

By Zhang Ming (张鸣)

There are many people [in our country] who yearn for a repeat of the Cultural Revolution, for another violent convulsion. This should send shivers through us all. If we refuse to review and reexamine the Cultural Revolution, we might still be a society of cannibals. And if we are such a society, it doesn’t matter how bright we might seem on the outside, or how fully we enjoy the fruits of civilisation — we are still a den of cannibals.

It has been more than 30 years since the end of the Cultural Revolution, but this [historical episode] has never quite gone from us. In both the real and virtual worlds, those, old and young, who praise and support the Cultural Revolution can be found everywhere. On a taxi ride recently I was talking with the elderly driver and he said with profound hatred that if we just had another round of the Cultural Revolution officials wouldn’t be let off the hook so easily — we would peel them alive, he said.

In official [Party] documents the Cultural Revolution has been thoroughly rejected. But remembering, recording and reflecting back on the Cultural Revolution remains taboo. Meanwhile, praise and affirmation for the Cultural Revolution decade [is allowed to] quietly thrive. It’s as though we’ve been able to completely dissociate the Cultural Revolution [as officially condemned] from the events of that decade. In all of human history encompassed by the twentieth century, spanning all nations, was there any event like our Cultural Revolution? The only possible comparison is the Nazi period in Germany. But to this day, we have had no historical commemoration, no reflection of the kind [Germany has had].

Looking back on that period today, the most ghastly thing was the way the Cultural Revolution trampled on human beings and their dignity. Humiliation, physical abuse, murder, death through negligence and maltreatment — these became like a daily meal regimen. Things worked this way during the height of chaos, and in more or less the same way once normalcy returned.

The popular tyranny of the Cultural Revolution extended through to the public security system once it was restored. No matter who a person was, once they entered the “police station”(局&#233 76;), a beating was to be expected, and being beaten to death was always possible.

During the Cultural Revolution, we had the Guangxi Massacre (广西& #22823;屠&#26432 ;), the Dao County Massacre (道县& #22823;屠&#26432 ;) and the Daxing Massacre (大兴& #22823;屠&#26432 ;). You might say those were special cases. But during struggles in many areas is was quite common for one or the other side to use rifles, or even cannons and machine guns, for indiscriminate slaughter.

Were any places spared the constant struggle, the popular tyranny, the death and persecution that went on without rest over those ten years? No one, not a person, was given the slightest bit of dignity. So it was for those in the “five black categories”(landlords, wealthy peasants, counter-revolutionaries, evildoers and rightists, and their sons and daughters). So it was for the capitalist roaders... With my own eyes I saw people struck down and beaten within an inch of their lives who had the day before murdered others with their own hands. Forced prostration,“jet propulsion” struggle sessions [in which victims were suspended with their arms out and behind like wings],“yin-yang head”[humiliations in which half the head was shaved clean]... Humiliations and abuses like these never ceased during the ten years of the Cultural Revolution.

Some people find it strange that an adolescent girl could wield a leather belt and beat her own teacher to death. Or that red guards could take the elderly, women and children and flog them to death, scald them to death with boiling water, drown them in toilets, and even cut them to ribbons while they were alive. In some places, like Guangxi province, after people were beaten to death, their hearts were eaten. In that area, eating people in this way was actually very common!
There is only one explanation — those people who were persecuted and murdered were all class enemies. The Cultural Revolution was a war of one class against another, and class enemies were not seen as human beings. That meant it was reasonable and normal to kill any number of people in any way possible. The problem is that there was no war at the time, and the time who were seen at the time as enemies were simply living their lives with their families when they were dragged out, not offering up the least resistance. Regardless of anything else, these were human beings. No matter what class rationalisations you us, the act of torturing and beating to death people who offered no resistance was one that decimated the humanity of the perpetrator. No matter what the revolutionary doctrines and justifications are, a class struggle of this kind is only ultimately violence of the strong against the weak.
... In China today, the abuse of domestic cats is enough to infuriate many people. How is it possible people can hope for a replay of the Cultural Revolution? But this desire is very real. A person can shed tears of sympathy over a cat that has been crushed to death, but this does not deter them from wishing for another Cultural Revolution, in which they imagine skinning those in power.
Of course, many of those who wish for another Cultural Revolution don’t really understand the true horrors of that decade. They don’t know the real Cultural Revolution. They think the Cultural Revolution was just as leftists now describe it, a period of great democracy in which there was struggle against pro-capitalists.
One fact cannot be denied — many Chinese, including those experienced the Cultural Revolution, have not regained their humanity.

One researcher who studied the Guangxi Massacre thought it was very strange that of all those he interviewed who had cannibalised others at that time none whatsoever said they regretted their actions. They all said that back then it was a life-and-death class struggle, that those they killed might have killed them. In fact, the vast majority of those they murdered were of the so-called “five black categories.” Even as they were killed, raped, gang-raped, they did not put up a struggle. They were abused until death ended their suffering, and then their hearts were eaten. If their spirits were here today, they would no doubt be surprised to find their persecutors acting with the same stubborn sense of having been right.
It goes without saying that these people have not yet recovered their sense of humanity. Perhaps it could be said that these self-righteous murderers are better than many of their fellows in the sense that they at least have owned up to their deeds. Many people who committed innumerable murders have simply wiped their faces clean and pretended nothing ever happened ...
The world has already entered the twenty-first century. Many of those who committed acts of violence during those years are already old and feeble. If they wish to bear their savageness with them to their graves, that is their own choice. There are many people [in our country] who yearn for a repeat of the Cultural Revolution, for another violent convulsion. This should send shivers through us all. If we refuse to review and reexamine the Cultural Revolution, we might still be a society of cannibals. And if we are such a society, it doesn’t matter how bright we might seem on the outside, or how fully we enjoy the fruits of civilisation — we are still a den of cannibals. If having experienced the Cultural Revolution, the people of our nation do not reflect [on that episode in our history], we will have no way of leaving this den of cannibals. Any one of us might eat others, and any one of us might be eaten.

On February 20, China Youth Daily published a piece on page two by Zhang Ming (张鸣), a former CMP fellow and a professor of political science at Renmin University of China. Zhang’s piece argued China must reflect back openly on the Cultural Revolution if Chinese hope to regain a sense of humanity and dignity.

[ABOVE: A re-posted version of Zhang Ming's Cultural Revolution article for China Youth Daily at Phoenix Online drew more than 300,000 visits by February 25. The article is accompanied by an image of the victim of a Cultural Revolution struggle session. We'll let readers parse the significance of the Buick advertisement to the right of the coverage.]

The language of Zhang’s piece — printed in China Youth Daily‘s “speaking freely” column — is strong and direct, not shrinking from brutal characterization of the acts committed during the Cultural Revolution.

Cannibalism is Zhang’s overarching metaphor, built atop very real (and apparently quite common) acts of human flesh-eating that occurred during the Cultural Revolution. At one point, Zhang writes that if China cannot reflect back, then “we are still a den of cannibals.”

So, it is clearly CCP "policy" to keep China a primitive, lawless "den of cannibals".

Unspeakable Crimes

By BARBARA RUDOLPH

Sunday, June 24, 2001

Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution was an eruption of ideological fervor, mass hysteria and outright brutality that left an estimated 10 million Chinese dead and ruined the lives of millions more. Now tales of even more horrible excesses from the years between 1966 and 1976 are coming to light: allegations of cannibalism, involving hundreds of men and women who violated mankind's most powerful taboo in the name of revolutionary purity.

Evidence that cannibalism was not only practiced but condoned and even encouraged by some Communist Party officials emerged last week with the arrival in the U.S. of Zheng Yi, a dissident novelist who has been on Beijing's most wanted list since the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre. Zheng, now 45, spent three years hiding in China before escaping to Hong Kong nine months ago. On the run as a fugitive, he managed to recover a number of the secret government reports that he had collected over the years. He used them to document two books, which he and his wife eventually smuggled out of the country.

Prepared in the mid-1980s and suppressed by the authorities, the documents reveal that cannibalism was widely practiced in the late '60s in the Guangxi Autonomous Region in southern China. Acting without the sanction of national party authorities, the documents reveal, several party leaders in Guangxi incited followers to kill "class enemies" and then eat their flesh in public ceremonies. Zheng also conducted his own extensive investigation into the reports of cannibalism. He says he interviewed relatives of victims and spoke with dozens of people who confessed to having eaten human flesh. He insists that his case is persuasive.

There is no evidence that Mao Zedong knew cannibalism was being practiced during the Cultural Revolution. When Premier Zhou Enlai heard about the crimes in Guangxi, he ordered party officials to put a stop to them. Nonetheless, according to Zheng, amid the anarchy of the times cannibalism apparently persisted in Guangxi. "I believe Zheng's story," says Perry Link, a professor of Chinese at Princeton. "He's a writer of integrity, and the rich detail has the ring of authenticity." Chinese officials now disclaim any knowledge of the practice. Said a Public Security official in Beijing: "I've never heard of this."

The atrocities took many forms, according to documents. One report refers to "eating people as an after-dinner snack ...barbecuing people's livers ...banqueting on human meat." The same document matter-of-factly relates specific tales of depravity. "On May 14, 1968," it says, "a group of 11, led by the Wei brothers, captured a man named Chen Guorong and killed him with a big knife before cutting out his liver. They shared the human meat with 20 participants." The same month Wu Shufang, a teacher at the Wuxuan Middle School, was beaten to death; her liver was roasted and eaten. During 1968, 91 members of the Communist Party in Guangxi were expelled on charges that they were involved in cannibalism, but none was severely punished.

Rumors about cannibalistic practices began to surface shortly after the atrocities occurred, but they were squelched by the authorities. Zheng heard the first stories in 1968, when he was a Red Guard in Guilin, in northeastern Guangxi. He was skeptical, but 16 years later, established as a novelist, he asked Liu Binyan, a dissident journalist who now lives in the U.S., if the stories might be true. "Liu told me they were," Zheng recalls, "but he had not wanted to write about them because the subject was so nasty."

The exchange spurred Zheng to try to bring the sordid story to light. Visiting the county of Shanglin, north of Nanning, Zheng found that cannibalism was openly discussed years after the fact. An old man named Yi Wansheng told Zheng, "Yes, I confess everything," and proceeded to describe how he had killed one victim, a landlord's son. "I used a knife to cut him. The first knife was dull, so I threw it away. With another knife I was able to open his chest. But when I tried to pull out his heart and liver, the blood was too hot for my hand and I had to bring some water to cool it. When I took the organs out, I cut them to pieces and shared them with the people of the village."

In the two decades since the end of the Cultural Revolution, most of the great upheaval's excesses have been publicized as part of senior leader Deng Xiaoping's campaign to discredit Maoist orthodoxy. Why have the stories of cannibalism remained under wraps? "Many of the people involved are still in power in Guangxi," Zheng suggests. "Some of those people told me to beware or I might get myself killed." Equally important, he feels, any revelation of the atrocities would be profoundly embarrassing to the Beijing government. "Top leadership has known about it all along," Zheng charges, "but it has not wanted anyone else to know."
