Beijing Spring, 1989: Confrontation and Conflict: the Basic Documents

By Michel Oksenberg; Lawrence R. Sullivan et al. | Go to book overview

cultural organizations were run in the way administrative organizations were operated, grouped into the government's administrative ranking system, and put under its firm control. Consequently, the numbers of all organizations other than administrative ones have shrunk. This organizational shrinkage has resulted in universal disorder and inefficiency in society. For example, the market organizational shrinkage has brought disorder and inefficiency to society. "New authoritarianism" neglects reform of the existing power structure and political system and updating of systems and organizations; but it favors increasing the power of the government while maintaining the existing political power structure (in fact, it means giving more power to several particular individuals in the government--"new authoritarianism" admires strongman politics). In this way, power struggles will surely become more acute the further it goes; the situation in which society lacks order and rallying capability will worsen; and the objectives, such as political stability, which new authoritarianism seeks, will be lost.

The key to getting rid of this disorderly state of affairs lies in standardizing the power of the government so that the government can take charge of what it ought to do. Failure to do so will lead to a structural restoration or more deep- seated disorder.

WU JIAXIANG

Young academic Wu Jiaxiang has been a "central figure" in the theoretical debate over neo-authoritarianism conducted by people in academic circles. This newspaper has published quite a number of articles airing different views. Feeling that his "opponents" did not completely understand his ideas and concepts, Wu Jiaxiang has written another article to explain his views.
