CCP’s Accomplice Network Hobbled the Chained Woman

Commentary

When the chained woman of Xuzhou was finally recognized by the Communist regime as a victim of female trafficking, the only sensible thing was for her to return to her own family and home right away.

Unfortunately, the situation is always the opposite under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

After the chained woman went on the “hot search list” in China, measures to maintain social stability, according to the CCP’s definition, were put in place right away. She was relocated to a psychiatric hospital for isolation from the outside world. Local police detained two female netizens who tried to visit her at the hospital and threatened to arrest the organizer of a convoy of 100 women when they entered Feng County where the chained woman was found. The entire region was locked down with iron walls..

Public concern rose that she may be drugged or undergo surgery, and end up a real mental patient who will never be able to tell her story.

After being abducted and sold, her identity was whitewashed, and her life as a sex slave was legalized as a free marriage. After being confirmed as a victim of human trafficking, she was still unable to return home. As a netizen commented, the chained woman and her family are separated not only by an iron chain, but by a mafia regime.

Female Trafficking Became Rampant Under CCP Protection

Dong Guangping, a former Chinese police officer, said incidents similar to the Xuzhou chained woman have occurred one after another for decades, “Female trafficking is a series of gang crimes, involving family planning personnel, the Public Security Bureau, officers at the police station, grassroots cadres, and the Civil Affairs Bureau.”

The industry of trafficking in females has ancient roots and spans the globe. In all parts of the world, the criminal chain of this industry is dominated by crime rings engaged in prostitution or sex trafficking. They need to obtain fake documents for victimized females through the black market in order to evade police inspection. However, in contemporary China, the fake marriage certificate, household registration book, and ID card used for trafficking are issued by the authorities who are fully under the CCP’s control.

In the contemporary era when slavery was abolished, governments in most regions of the world spare no effort in cracking down on traffickers and rescuing the trafficked women.

Nevertheless, the CCP condones and protects the trafficking rings that commit crimes, including abuse, rape, gang rape, murder, and such. Female trafficking has become a semi-public or public industry hence, traffickers don’t fear police inspection or care about public reports.

In fact, in any part of China, the locals are aware of which individual purchased a wife and incarcerates the victimized woman. Even if there are people who want to help, they are powerless in the face of a rogue regime with authority that controls the police and army.

The Xuzhou chained woman is not an isolated instance, but a common phenomenon. All of the female victims are known locally. These incidents have come into the spotlight due to the overt and legalized local human trafficking industry. Hence, Dong, the buyer and rapist of the chained woman wasn’t concerned about being exposed. He shamelessly showed the eight children she had born because she was gang-raped by his late father, his brother, and himself, to gain social assistance.

The video of the chained woman eventually went viral online and sparked an outcry in China and attention from the world. Meanwhile, the Chinese regime’s evil deeds—covering up the truth, making public falsehoods, deleting posts and web users’ accounts, blocking villages and roads, imprisoning netizens who visit the chained woman, detaining the victimized woman—have publicly proven to the world why female trafficking is rampant to such a horrendous degree in China. An online commentator said that the authorities’ handling of female trafficking has further encouraged human trafficking rings despite public pressure.

CCP’s Nationwide Accomplice Network Is the Root of All Evil

After the incident prompted a heated discussion, U.S.-based Chinese author and economist, He Qinglian, reminded the public of an issue in her article that remote rural areas in China form an accomplice network to control trafficked females.

Impoverished villages are filled with bachelors who purchase a female for marriage from traffickers and do not consider it a crime. To secure the property they paid for, villagers form a containment system to prevent the trafficked females from escaping. They warn the buyer, refuse to cooperate with the police, and intervene in police rescue efforts as they think necessary. Trafficked females are in bondage to a small community of accomplices.

The small community of accomplices—the root of all evil in contemporary China—is in fact a manifestation of the CCP’s mafia-style network that is nationwide in rural China.

The CCP’s control of power is the tightest in history, reaching down to the smallest corners of society. The mafia system of the CCP is entrenched and highly integrated with the grassroots rural authorities.

Essentially, the CCP is tantamount to a criminal syndicate since they share similar characteristics. First, the subordinates absolutely obey the superiors, and those who disobey are disciplined. Second, they must fight for the organization for life once joining it and those who wish to quit are deemed traitors and punished.

CCP Disintegrates China’s Traditional Social Structure

One of the appalling consequences of the CCP rule is the disintegration of China’s traditional social structure and replication of  mafia characteristics in every corner of society that it can, from cities to rural areas, from factories to streets, from schools to the media, from Han areas to remote minority areas. They have all become branches of the CCP mafia-style system. Once the system is in operation, the accomplice network becomes obvious.

Under the CCP, all small communities are attached to the CCP accomplice network that promotes female trafficking in rural China. This is not because the traffickers are brutal, nor is it because the peasants are ignorant, it’s because the CCP officials cover up, connive, deploy, and direct gangsters to commit such crimes. Since the exposure of the chained woman video, the Jiangsu provincial authorities’ crackdown on the online debate and the region’s containment measures have proved this.

For thousands of years, small communities were the traditional social structure and way of life in rural China. They took Confucian ethics as the cultural core, the rule of clan, and etiquette as an institutional system, and the landed gentry and Confucian scholars as the ruling class, forming an autonomous system of a small community outside imperial power.

The small community society has experienced four stages of transformation in Chinese history.

The First Stage: During the Zhou Dynasty when the vassal states were established, from villages to cities to capitals, the whole society was a small community. People settled in the surrounding areas with fiefs of the nobles as the core, forming an autonomous society of small communities with clan ethics and the rules of clan and etiquette as the cultural framework.

The Second Stage: From the Qin Dynasty to the era before the Republic of China, Emperor Qin replaced the feudal system with a centralized administrative system under the direct control of the emperor, establishing prefectures and counties.

At the prefecture level, a large community society with imperial power as the core was formed. It was a social system governed by Confucianism and Legalism. The former accentuated personal morality, while the latter advocated impersonal norms: laws, administrative regulations, and clearly defined rules of punishment and rewards. Below the county level, the small autonomous society governed by Confucianism, and the rules of clan and etiquette, remained in the villages. The dual-mode social structure of large and small communities coexisted until the era of the Republic of China.

The Third Stage: In the era of the Republic of China, the transformation of social structure was mainly in the large communities. In the power system at the county level and above, the constitutional system replaced the imperial system, and the modern constitutional rule of law replaced the ancient ruling system that applied both Confucianism and Legalism. In the countryside, a small autonomous system under Confucian ethics and the rule of the clan was maintained.

The Fourth Stage: After the establishment of the CCP regime, both large and small communities were forcibly disintegrated by the CCP through waves of political movements such as Land Reform, Three-anti Campaign, Five-anti Campaign, Anti-Rightist Campaign, and the Cultural Revolution. The CCP’s underworld system dominated all social organizations and resources in China, transforming the entire Chinese social structure into an accomplice structure of the underworld.

In rural areas, Land Reform extinguished the main class—the landlords and the landed gentry—that had inherited Confucian culture. The ten-year Cultural Revolution virtually wiped out the very last and residual values of propriety, righteousness, integrity, honor, filial piety, loyalty, and trust of Confucianism from the Chinese people. After Reform and Openness, the rule of clan, Confucian ethics, and moral norms existed no more. Now the clans and the CCP’s underworld system, which has taken root in the grassroots authorities, is in place.

In the absence of the rule of clans, people are likely to transform into a community that doesn’t attach importance to ethics and moral norms. Under the protection of mafia grassroots authorities, these communities can simply evolve into criminal communities. This is the root cause of rural China becoming an end market for the crime of female trafficking.
