Crimes, Terror, & Revolution


Speech given by Brian McAdam:

Rally to supporting 20 million people who quit the Chinese Communist Party,

 on Parliament Hill, Ottawa,

March 30, 2007

Communist regimes in the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam etc. “turned mass crime into a full blown system of government.”  During the twentieth century, Communism ruled almost one third of mankind.  (1)

“The Communists assumed the right to torture and/or kill any members of any social groups, regardless of guilt or innocence."  (2)

The Communist regimes’ crimes resulted in the deaths of over 100 million people, in contrast with the estimated 25 million victims of the Nazis. (1)

“It was not human beings being killed, but the “bourgeoisie,” capitalists.” or enemies of the people,” according to their warped ideology.”  (1)

By means of propaganda, the Communists succeeded in making people non—human.

The Soviet Union played a critical role in “the formation and ideological education of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in 1921.”  (2)

Then after haunting the world for 80 years the brutal Soviet empire, just as it “appeared to have reached its zenith, collapsed like a deck of cards.”  (2)

The Chinese Communist Party China, responsible for the deaths of over 70 million, is now one of the few last remaining such regimes.  (1)

China remains one of the most repressive countries in the world.  The over 1,000 laogai slave labor camps instigated by Mao in 1950 are believed to now hold from “1.5 million to 4 million” (3) making slave labor goods being consumed by free-spending Americans and Canadians oblivious or indifferent to the plight of those poor souls.  

“China is a police state; it is the world’s leader in executions.”  (4)

“In 2005, China still accounted for 97 percent of the executions carried out in the world.”  (5)

Persons are often executed for non-violent crimes. “The death penalty can be given for burglary, embezzlement, counterfeiting, bribery or killing a panda.”  (5)  Purse snatching has been added to the 68 capital offences.  (6)

China’s horrific human rights abuses also include; religious persecutions; the network of over 1,000 labor camps; the harvesting of organs from executed prisoners and from practitioners of Falun Gong; the imprisonment of journalists and lawyers; the forced abortions and the imprisonment of women who violate the one-child policy; the policing of the internet to imprison those who seek information deemed dangerous to totalitarian rule.

“On paper, China looks powerful and dynamic, in reality, however [China] is a paper dragon. Peer beneath the surface, and there is a weak China, one that is in long-term decline and even on the verge of collapse. The symptoms of decay are everywhere.” (7)

“The government is corrupt and weak.”  (7)

“Chinese society is seething with unrest and the ruling party is split.”  (7)

The problems are well known to most Chinese people both those living in and those outside of China.  The Chinese population is seething. "On any given day there may be 200 different protests."  According to a BBC report: "the Chinese state works hard to make sure that these demonstrations are kept well out of sight."  (8)

“Even a dictatorial one-party state cannot survive when its people find out the truth and realize they have a common cause.”  (7)

Although totalitarian regimes always appear strong, “When Communist regimes fall, they fall quickly.”  (7)

In the Soviet Union “Privilege and corruption took hold, Utopia receded. The ideology ceased to be credible.”  (9)

“The Soviet satellite regimes fell when fears turned to hope. In China the government will fall when fear becomes rage.”  (9)

“It is sometimes said that the Soviet Union imploded…it would be more accurate to speak of ‘a chain of explosions.”   (9)

“History repeats itself in dictatorships around the world.”  (9)  

Mao Zedong once said that: “A single spark can start a prairie fire.”

Is 20 millions quitting the Communist Party that spark?

It is certainly part of the ‘chain of explosions’ taking place right now in China.

Leon Trotsky said: “Revolution is impossible until it is inevitable.”   (10)
