The Chinese regime is not as strong as it is portrayed to the outside world, and many internal problems plaguing the regime will lead to its demise, said a former British diplomat and China expert.
These problems were recognized by some high-level Chinese officials themselves and they could lead a coup d’etat to remove current Chinese leader Xi Jinping to protect their own interests, said Roger Garside, author of “China Coup: The Great Leap to Freedom,” in a recent interview on Epoch TV’s “American Thought Leaders” program.
“They can see better than most people can see, that this regime is outwardly strong, but inwardly weak. And that it’s in a state of political decay,” Garside said.
He added: “And that their best hope for preserving their own wealth and power, as well as the best hope for China, is to lead a coup d’etat to remove Xi Jinping and to launch China into a democratic transition.”
These problems are not caused by “external forces” or “anti-China forces,” whom the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) often blames for China’s woes. Instead, the problems have been created by the communist regime’s own political system, a totalitarian dictatorship, Garside said.
“They [Chinese regime] are weak inwardly because there is a moral crisis in China. There is a system of corruption, the system is corrupt, from top to bottom, from left the right. And I could go on, but the single greatest area of weakness is, curiously enough, the economy,” Garside explained.
The moral plunge in China began when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) lost its moral authority after the Tiananmen Square Massacre, according to Garside. To replace the lost authority, Garside said the regime began the “biggest privatization campaign the world has ever seen,” in order to use “material incentive” so that people could be loyal to the CCP leadership.
