In my second shout-out of the day, I’d like to address Xi Jinping’s apparent “anti-corruption” campaign in China, in which he is using his power, under this guise, to attack his political enemies. His most recent target is Jiang Zemin, former head of the CCP. From surveillance, to arresting his second-in-command and his brother, it appears to be a gross misuse of power. A clear political threat to Xi, Jiang is the main target of this targeted attack.
Though some see this as a legitimate anti-corruption campaign, Xi has shown that he is corrupt in many ways himself, and time after time he demonstrates use of his power to put down his political rivals. China must reject the status quo if it ever wants to retain any ounce of political freedom.
