Billionaire gangster executed in China
Before we cheer China's use of the death penalty on gangsters perhaps we should read between the lines and see how this law is being misused. The Telegraph reported that China executed a billionaire gangsters as it cracks down on corruption. The headline automatically creates suspicion. The government of China is cracking down on corruption? Really? What are they going to do disband themselves? Although China is a Communist system there is no social justice. The wealth and greed of China's National People's Congress is astounding and is even exponentially worse than the American congress who are devote capitalists.
So when we read of a billionaire in China who made his fortune in construction and mining my first response was what did they do, execute him to steal his fortune? Turns out critics of the government claim this is just another step in eliminating political opposition to the current regime. That makes a lot more sense. Liu claims he was framed. No doubt. The court also ordered the confiscation of the Liu brothers' personal assets. Big surprise. More than 150 Communist Party officials went to "oversee" the trial.
This case gives rise to three important questions. The first is, how did this guy acquire that much wealth in a Communist system where incentive has been removed and all the profits are supposed to be shared with the public? Obviously that's not happening. Big surprise. He must have been involved with the Communist Party to be allowed to acquire that much wealth and he must have fallen out of favor with them for them to kill him and steal his money for themselves.
The second question is How on earth do members of the Communist party in China acquire such outrageous wealth in a Communist system? They are far more greedy and materialistic then the Capitalists they condemn.
The third question is why did they let millions of people starve to death in North Korea when they had such massive individual wealth? Why did we? Wikipedia states the famine was accentuated by droughts but not caused by it. It was caused by Russia stopping their humanitarian aid when it collapsed. Which shows us two things. Russia did send humanitarian aide when it was in power and China did not. However, neither did we. Why did we not send them humanitarian aide? Because we disagreed with their politics? Since when is humanitarian aide discriminated upon due to religion or politics? We should have helped them. Right now we can help them by helping them build a few hydro electric dams to generate some electricity which they clearly need. Hydroelectric dams are much safer for the world than nuclear reactors.
