Part 1. Examples and Cases

Ex1. Surveying Christian faith in ZhuPo Village [1]

 Author: XX Wang, Date: 19/05/2014 editor: United Front

 On 15/05/2014, the director of Police station and the administrators of Ethnicity and Religion in Zhubo Village, Anqin City, Anwui Province, under the leader of the Department of the United Front in the village, have surveyed the Christian faith by using two days. We found out the number of Christian, the gathering places, preachers and others.

After investigating, we know that there are one gathering place, over 30 disciples. Most of them are elders. The investigators educated and guided these disciples with great patient and told them that they must go to take participate in the legal church. It is not allowed for them to go the private place for the worship.

 

Ex 2. Shangjiang Churches in Wenzhou were demolished [2]

On 30/04/2014, a lot of Christian with nonviolent struggle could not stop the Shangjiang Church in Wenzhou to be demolished by the Chinese government. Ironically, in 2013 just when this church was built, the Chinese government praised this building as a model project.

Before the government demolished the church, the government arrested over 10 church members, summoned and warned the church members who are the civil servants, checked the tax of members who were businessmen, suppressed their families of members. Hence, a lot of members who prepared to protect the church, left the church one by one.

During the same time, in the YongJia county in Wenzhou, the Chinese government thoroughly investigated the Christian faith of the members of the CCP, the retirees, the public servants. The details are kept by the relevant companies.

From April to June in 2014, there were over 60 churches demolished in Wenzhou.

 

Ex 3. How to make a price of airline ticket? [3]

The price of the airline ticket from Shanghai to Beijing is $1100 RMB. The passenger who buys the ticket at the airport maybe pay full price. However, the passenger who books the ticket 2 weeks in advance, only pays 30% of the price, i.e., $340 RMB. Why?

 

Ex 4. The number of the student overseas and the emigrant [4]

In 2013, the open door report in US stated that there were over 450,000 Chinese students in US which were about 29% of international students in US.

According to the World Migration Report by UN in 2013, there were about 9.3 millions Chinese emigrants who firstly chose US, Canada.

 

Ex 1 is about the United Front of the CCP; Ex 2 is about the church demolished by the CCP; Ex 3 is about the price discrimination in Economics and Ex 4 is the numbers of the Chinese student overseas and Chinese emigrant.

Are there the relation among 4 Examples?

 

Part 2. United Front of CCP

The United Front was created by Lenin. The core of this idea is that in politics they must “Unite the secondary enemy, fight the primary enemy”.

Hence, the United Front means that they should unite firstly and fight secondly, or unite and fight together.

In 1939, Zedong Mao put forward the three treasures, i.e., “the United Front, the Armed Struggle and the Construction of Party.

In Sep. 1948, the CCP formally established the United Front of the Center Committee.

Today, the United Front is still one of the three important treasures and is attached great important by the leaders of the CCP.

Today, the United Front has seven departments, which deal with the democracy parties, the ethnicity and religions, liaison of Hongkong Macao and overseas, training cadres, economies and non-party intellectuals and so on.

In Mainland, the Department of the United Front control people who are obedient, such as Three-self Church. Once if the government finds out that they can not control some people, they will control and unite those by using the Amy, the Police, for example, the case of June 4, suppressing Falungong Trainee, demolishing churches, and so on.

In overseas, through the flag of patriotism, the CCP threats and inducts Chinese overseas, and trains procommunist so that those Chinese can spread the CCP’s order in overseas. Hence, there are a lot of secret spies in United Front.

 

Part 3. Overview of Chinese Churches

1. Overview of Chinese churches in Mainland [6]

(1) Official Church, i.e. Three-self Patriotic Church or Three-self Church, (self-government, self-support and self-propagation) was controlled, granted by the CCP, and was not allowed to be administrated and intervened by the foreign church. Three-self church is also called the China Church Council. There are three kinds of Christian, i.e.Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox.

There is a policy called “the Three-fixed Policy” about official churches, i.e., “fixed place, fixed pastor and fixed district”, which mean pastors must preach at the legal and registered place, must have missionary certificate and are not allowed to preach across the trans-region.

At the present, it is still prohibited that the foreign pastor overseas preaches and that the Chinese pastor spontaneously preaches across trans-region.

(2) Catholic: Under the name of God, the Catholic Church should be led by the Vatican. So the CCP establishes the Patriotic Catholic which is not granted by the Vatican. The Catholic Church that is not granted by the CCP, survives underground and hovers ground, and then becomes the underground church or the folk church.

The CCP insists that there is only one Chinese Protestant and one Chinese Catholic not like various kinds of religious sects in other countries. (There are over 1000 religious sect in US). At the same time, the CCP seriously controls the Christianity in the finance and the numbers of Christians which must be approved by the CCP. )

(3) Folk Church ( also called the underground church, the house church) hopes that they can be independent in the official. A lot of house churches are always monitored, limited, even detained, damaged by the CCP, which becomes one serious problem of the Human Rights in China.

A Pastor Xiqiu Fu, president of China Aid Association in US, have stated that there were over 7000 Christians persecuted, over 1470 Christians detained in 2013, and the number increased by 30% compared to the last year.

Millions of Christians and pastors in folk churches survive in the plight against persecution and imprisonment.

For example, Zhongliang Fang, who was a Bishop of Patriotic Catholic in Shanghai (now he passed away), was imprisoned by the CCP over 30 years.

Daqian Ma, who was appointed as a Bishop of Patriotic Catholic in Shanghai by the CCP and the Vatican together, is still detained by the CCP after he announced to quit “Patriotic Church”.

(Remark: The CCP appoints somebody as a Bishop, which destroys the fundamental principle of the modern politics, i.e., the separation of the church from the state.)

(4) The number of Christians in Mainland

Official Churches: 23 millions(Protestant) + over 6 millions (Catholic)29 millions.

Folk Churches: 90 Millions110 Millions (including over 6 millions Catholic)

2. Chinese Church overseas:

In overseas, red Christians and red pastors run rampant, which is quite popular in the Chinese church. They are always praying for the western suffering whilst they become blind to Chinese misery. A lot of the Christians who even took advantage of the blood card in the case of June 4, never publically talk about the case of June 4 in church, i.e. a great taboo.

 

Part 4. United Front of CCP and Chinese Christianes

One of the targets of the United Front is the Christian. As to the CCP, the social functions of the United Front are as following:

(1)      In Mainland: the CCP controls the disciples and makes them obedient so that the disciples under the order of the CCP suppress House Churches and other illegal religions;

(2)      In overseas: The CCP bribes the western Christians, changes them into friends and then into comrades. The CCP support red pastors and red Christians and then cut the relation between the house churches and the Chinese churches in overseas, and then let the Chinese churches overseas announce and only admit the official churches. The CCP also makes the illusion of freedom of religion, conceals the truth of suppressing house churches and rejects the righteous overseas who fight for the Chinese Human Rights.

Most media of Chinese Christians overseas keep silent about Chinese social righteousness, Christian and Politics, Chinese Human Rights and so on.

In Three-self Church controlled by the CCP, there are a number of secret spies of the CCP. Ex. Chuwen Li, a famous pastor in Shanghai since 1950 was harmed by Hongweibing in the Great Culture Revolution, 1966. To protect himself, Li showed his real identification, a member of the CCP. Later, during 1983-1988, Li was appointed as a vice-president of XinHua News Agency in Hongkong, which is obviously a secret service.

Robert Georges, president of Commission of international religious freedom, a professor in Preston University have stated [8], that the CCP likes to prosecute any kind of religions. He pointed out that the most important reason is that the CCP rejects any kind of independent NGO, which shows the CCP’s non-confident and phobia. (In fact, one of reason about the huge change in Eastern Europe, the disintegration of the former Soviet Union, the Jasmine revolution in Arabic is NGOs which are strong and numerous)

Although the constitution of China state that there is freedom of religion in China, and the CCP have signed the international convention relevant to freedom of religion, they only are empty-promise.

 

Part 5. Price Discrimination in Economics

The airline expects that the aircraft has full ride as much as possible and the ticket price is as high as possible in order to pursue the maximum profit.

Usually, passengers are maybe businessmen, tourists, students and so on. However, airlines are more concerned about the first two categories, i.e., businessmen and tourists. Hence, airlines adopt the different strategies as below:

(1)      Businessmen who will pay high price. It is a temporary decision to buy an airline ticket. So they must pay it even if it is high or full price. Ex. The price from Shanghai to Beijing is $1100 RMB.

(2)      Tourists who are attracted by lower price. They usually book the tickets 2 weeks in advance. Ex. The price from Shanghai to Beijing is $340 RMB.

The above is a famous example of the price discrimination in Economics [3]. Today, almost 100% large- and medium-sized companies adopt kinds of the price discrimination to increase their profit.

There are several concepts of economics about the price discrimination as below:

(1)    The price discrimination: to the same service, the company sells its commodity with different fees to different customers. Ex. The airline sell its tickets by high price or 30% discount in order to pursue the maximum profit.

(2)    The rule of one price: the company sells it commodity with the same price to all kinds of customers. In this way, it is impossible to pursue the maximum profit.

(3)    The information cost: Ex. To adopt the strategy of the price discrimination, the airline must know about various categories and characters of various customers, which the airline must increase the information cost.

(4)    The completely price discrimination: Ex. The airline tries to acknowledge every (potential) customer who takes a plane and then adopts different strategy to every customer in order to pursue the maximum profit. However, it will increase such high information cost that the company can not afford any more.

(5)    The Separated Market: In order to decrease the information cost, the company reduces requirement, that is, the customers are classified into several recognizable groups, for example, the businessman and the tourist, the domestic and the oversea, the rural and the urban, etc. In usual, various obstacles such as regional blockades, the restriction of freedom of trade, help the monopoly brings out the price discrimination.

(Thus, in the democracy countries, the antitrust law checks and balances the price discrimination).

(6)    The conditions to realize the price discrimination:

(a)  Monopolistic Market help the monopoly control the price of goods or bring out the separated market.

(b)  Separated market: Different markets are separated into several parts, for example, the businessman and the tourist.

(c)
