【大纪元7月22日讯】大纪元记者杨光芝加哥报导/由美中论坛(Midwest China Forum)主办的题为“中美如何影响对方”的英文研讨会,6月25日在芝加哥市中心的帝堡中心(DePaul Center)举行,研讨会围绕着“中美如何影响对方”的主题展开了分析和论述,其中引出了许多引发深思的论题。本文为演讲详细报导之一。

  研讨会的嘉宾之一为《中国精神健康观察》杂志主编、美国费城杰弗逊大学综合医学中心的精神和行为医学主治医生杨景端。 杨景端称自己并非以国际关系专家的身份在此演讲,而是以一个在中国生活过,深受中共洗脑宣传影响的中国知识份子的身份发表自己的看法。他发言的题目是: 中国人的美国情结。他认为这个问题的答案有助于理解复杂的中美关系,而且会对未来产生影响。杨景端英文稿在报导的最后。

  杨景端在中国期间曾目睹由于东欧和前苏联共产党政权解体而造成的中共对外政策的变化。更由于近十三年在国外的生活,使他有机会接触到以前不可能了解到的情况。

  中共的美国情结

  杨景端认为中国人民的美国情结不同于中共政府的美国情结。对于中共来说,决定它对美国态度的因素只有一个,那就是:如果美国有利于中共统治它的人民,它就爱美国;如果美国坚持原则,指责中共的独裁统治和侵犯人权的行为,中共就恨美国。

  而在过去的十三年中,杨景端觉得中共对美国是爱多与恨,其根本原因是美国放弃了其自由民主的原则而把与中国的贸易关系摆在了第一位。贸易和人权脱钩事实上是人权和贸易的反向挂钩,也就是说如果你想跟中国做生意那么就对中国的人权记录睁一只眼闭一只眼吧。

  中共对美有三大成果

  得益于和以美国为首的西方国家的经济贸易和西方对中国的在技术方面和金钱方面的输血,中共实现了以下的成果:

  首先是这个在89天安门事件中扼杀了中国人追求自由民主的精神和努力的政权得以继续统治中国。西方社会对中共的妥协无异于向中国人民宣布了反抗中共独裁统治和人权侵犯方面是不会得到西方国家任何实质性的帮助的。最近的陈用林事件更证实了这个结论。和中国联盟等于是和中共联盟而不是和中国人民联盟。暂时的经济利益使的西方巨头门对日益恶化的中国人权记录和民主自由状况三缄其口。不仅如此,他们还与中共和谐共舞,让世人误以为他们正努力改善中国的人权状况。人质外交和人权对话就是典型的作戏。

  中共长袖善舞,懂得抓住一切机会美化自己。杨举了美国国务卿赖斯女士访华时的一件事做例子。为了让中国人知道自己对信仰自由的重视,赖斯女士在北京去一个教堂做了礼拜。当然中国的普通百姓是不会知道这些的。中共则利用这一机会向全世界表示在中国是有信仰自由的。

  中共通过对美和其他西方国家的贸易实现的第二个成果是迅速地强化了它的军事力量。军事强国的地位使中共得以挑战美国试图维护台湾民主自由的决心,而在周边地区挑起一场战争也有利于转移中国国内日益严重的社会矛盾,巩固其政权统治。杨教授表示他对美国政府官员与中国打交道时表现出的畏惧情绪毫不惊讶。如果萨达姆能和中共前党魁江泽民一样邪恶和强势,恐怕也会被盛情邀请到布什的农庄做客。

  第三个成果就是通过和觊觎中国市场的西方媒介大亨做交易,中共成功地将它的洗脑宣传渗透到西方社会。西方社会普遍认为中国已经变了,不再是共产主义的天下而是一个逐渐向西方资本主义过渡的大国。目前中国的经济发展假象不仅迷惑了大部分的中国人,也令西方的政治家们相信共产党当政对中国和世界都有好处。事实上,试图通过贸易改变中国的结果是被中国改变。

  中共领导人爱美国

  杨景端认为,中共的领导人们爱美国和西方国家,他们纷纷把自己的子女和财产送到国外,同时热衷于请西方领袖和他们的助手访问中国,这样中共就有机会展示他们想展示的,所以美国的政治家们一旦成了中共的客人之后,在中国问题上的立场往往会改变。

  中国百姓的美国情结

  那么普通的中国人呢?他们怎么看美国?这个问题就要复杂的多了。杨景端认为有几个因素决定中国人的美国情结:

  1. 首先是不受中共控制的程度,这包括精神上、经济上及家庭成员的自由。即使是那些离开中国居住在美国的中国人,他们仍有可能被中共的糖衣炮弹影响。也可以说他们是在互相利用。

  2. 无力摆脱中共控制的人,他们的情绪则完全被中国所摆布。1947年的中共 曾大肆赞美美国政府和美国人民的自由民主精神及他们对中国的支援。而到 1950, 情况就不同了,中国人民被号召“起来反对美帝国主义”。美国前总统老布什曾非常的迷惑,中共的媒体把美国描述成是头号敌人,而私下里,中共的领导人们又常常设宴盛情款待美国人。事实是中共并不恨美国,但它需要中国人民恨美国。所以如果美国对中共的独裁通知的任何非议都会被中国人民理解成“西方反华势力”的阴谋,必要时中共可以利用这种情绪发动战争。

  3. 对于亲身经历中共迫害而决定反抗的人,他们的美国情节爱恨交织。一方面
  他们感激美国政府对他们个人的保护和支持,另一方面他们又对美国牺牲中国人民的利益和中共做政治交易感到伤心。他们常常有被出卖的感觉。

  4.消息来源完全被中共所控制的中国人往往恨美国。这就是为什么80%的中国人在听到纽约世贸大楼倒塌的消息时,纷纷在互联网上欢呼雀跃。而一些西方的网络通讯公司则利用自己的高科技帮助中共实现网络封锁,中共则用一些伪装的第三方观点向中国人民灌输错误的信息。如果有一天,这些中国人知道了这些美国公司和中共勾结在一起剥夺他们的知情权,他们会比现在更恨美国。

  美国政府面临着一个选择

  最后,杨景端在总结中说道:美国政府面临着一个选择:是继续与中共这个头号敌人为伍呢,还是与中国人民合作,帮助和平过渡到一个自由民主的中国。如今由《九评共产党》引发了退党大潮,何去何从,美国正处在一个历史的关键时刻。

Chinese Perceptions of United States

Jingduan Yang, M.D.

What Does Chinese feel about the United States? The answer to this question may help us to understand the seemingly complicated relationship of the communist China and the capitalist United States. And it may shed some lights how these views will affect the future of Sino-US relationship.

I’m speaking here not as an expert of international relationships but as a Chinese intellectual, who had lived in China, experiencing firsthand how my attitude towards American being shaped by CCP’s propaganda.

I have also had opportunity to observe the China’s strategic changes in its foreign policy. Theses changes are the direct results of the collapse of former Soviet Union and Eastern European communist regime.

It is even more intriguing to observe the dynamic interaction between the United States and China in the last 13 years from outside China. This opportunity is unique because I have access to the information that I did not have before when I was in China.

To talk about how China feels about the United States, we have to separate how the Chinese communist government feels about United States and how the Chinese people feel about the United States.

What determines how CCP feels about The United States? One factor, and one factor only. CCP loves United States, when it can use US to help it strengthen its control of China and Chinese people and it hates United States when US stick with its principles and seriously challenge China’s practice of dictatorship and violation of human rights.

In the last 13years, I must say, the Chinese communist regime loves United States a lot more than it hates it. It is because United States has given up its principle of putting freedom and human rights before its trade relationship with China, at least give both equal weight. The unlink the trade with the human right is actually a re-link in a negative way, meaning if you want to do trade with China, do not be serious about China’s human right record.

Because of the trade with the United States and Western countries and because of the technology and monetary investments flow into China in the last 13 years the CCP has been able to accomplish the following:

First, the political legitimacy of ruling China after the Tianann Men Square massacre that had killed the Chinese spirit and endeavor pursuing freedom and democracy. The courtship of Western leaders towards the CCP has convinced the Chinese people that there was no way they were going to get real support from the Western countries against the CCP dictatorship and violation of human rights. Recent incident that Mr. Chen Yongling, a defected Chinese counselor in Sydney was rejected for political asylum by Australia government was an unfortunate prove of this devastating situation. The theory of engaging China is really in practice, engaging CCP regime and disengaging Chinese people. The pursuit for short-term economic interest has made western leaders shy away to tackle worsening record of human right violation and religious and political freedom in China.

Often the Chinese government and Western government tango together in harmony to mislead people that they are working on and making progress in improving human right in China. The hostage diplomacy and human right dialogue was nothing but a show in eyes of people who are suffering and getting no real support.

CCP is also very good at turning every opportunity into a favorable propaganda for itself. Attending a Sunday worship in a state run Church in Beijing, Secretary Rice was trying to show to Chinese (unfortunately Chinese could not see the show) how much she cares about religious freedom, and the CCP capitalizes on this opportunity to show the world the China does have religious freedom.

Second, the rapid build-up of military power which has been made possible by obtaining the money and technology in the process of trading with the United States and other Western countries.

This military super power will enable China to challenge US determination of defending freedom and democracy in Taiwan, and launch a war in the neighboring area that could shift China’s internal crisis and strengthening its power and legitimacy of ruling China when it is needed. The cost of course is the interest of Chinese people as always.

I was not surprised to sense the fear among the US diplomats and officials in the governments in dealing with today’s China.

When I saw Chinese former president Jiang Zeming was received as the honorary guest in Bush’s Taxas ranch, I entertained the idea that guest could be Saddam if he was as powerful and evil as Jiang.

Third, the communist propaganda penetrating Western world which was made possible through its deals with Western media tycoons that want to do business with China. That allows the Chinese government made program be shown freely in US, but only entertaining programs be shown in China.

China has successfully sold the idea to the Western world that China has changed, and that it is no longer a communist regime, but an evolving western type capitalistic super power. We like the freedom of press in the West and Chinese communist leaders enjoy it even more.

Deng Xiaoping’s strategy of developing China in disguise is working. Now, not only majority of Chinese but many Western politicians and people were sold with the idea that the China and the world would be better off with the communist ruling China.

It is a prove hat the theory of transforming China by engaging it became in practice the Western world being transformed by China instead.

In conclusion, it is my observation that CCP leaders love United States and Western countries, they sent their children to the West and money too. They are eager to invite Western leaders and their associates to visit China so they can show them what they want them to see, and it works even better if they allow China to cover their travel expenses. It is not uncommon to see how a politician in US changes its position on China issues after being a guest of Chinese government.

How about the Chinese people? What do they feel about the United States?

It is more complicated question to answer. There are at least several factors determining their feelings towards US.

1. How free they are from the control of CCP. It includes spiritual freedom and family freedom and financial freedom. Even for people who had expressed their feelings by leaving China and chosen to stay in the US, their feeling can change because the various social, economic attraction CCP can provide them, and the way CCP treats them today was so different to when they were living and working in China. China needs them and they need China, a nice tango again.

2. For those who have no way to escape the control of CCP, how they feel about the US depends on what the Chinese government wants them to feel. In 1947, The CCP praised the US and US people for their freedom and democracy and support to Chinese in its official news editorial, but in 1950, it made Chinese to fight a war against the “ American imperialistic obnoxious wolves”. The President Bush senior was puzzled when he was working in China by the fact that Chinese media portrayed US as the most evil enemy on the earth but CCP leaders hosted parties for them and are extremely friendly to them in private. The matter of truth is the CCP does not hate US but it needs Chinese people to hate US, so any US voice concerning misdemeanor of Chinese dictators will be automatically dismissed by Chinese people as a Western conspiracy against China. And they can also be manipulated to go for war or demonstration when CCP needs them.

3. For those Chinese who experienced first hand persecution and decided to fight instead of identifying with the abusers have more mixed feeling towards the US. They are grateful that US provides them with protection and personal support. But they feel sad to see how the Chinese government and US play political games sacrificing Chinese people and American people’s interest. They feel betrayed at times.

4. For those whose information source are controlled by the CCP of course hate US in general, it is why 80% Chinese people using the internet cheered for the down of the Twin Tower and thought US should be punished. Further more, some Western Internet and communication high tech companies are helping CCP censoring information and developing Internet blockage technology. Worst of all, CCP also use the Internet to spread its ideas, sometimes in the name of a third party, giving Chinese people a false sense of information freedom. These people shall hate US even more when they know someday what US government and US companies have done with CCP government and knowingly ignored their fundamental rights as a human being. This maybe why the Iraqis are not all grateful to US for being liberated either way.

In conclusion, The US has a choice to make today, choosing to take a side with the Chinese communist regime or with Chinese people, to continue engaging Chinese regime and cultivate its yet the worst foe for US to deal, focusing to engage Chinese people who are fighting for themselves and making peaceful transition to a free and democratic China. US must help to facilitate the golden revolution by helping promote free flow of information in China, as we are seeing today with the wave of resigning association with the CCP after the spread of Nine Commentaries on Chinese Communist Party. It is a critical and rare opportunity for US to make a right choice, a choice benefiting Chinese people, US and the world. ◇(http://www.dajiyuan.com)
