5.14. Would it be right to use violence to overthrow the CCP? (用暴力推翻中共正确吗?)

In an ideal world, Ciro Santilli is of course "against violence".

But what if you could prevent a lot of future violence with some violence today?

Ah, the eternal question which only God can answer:

Do you really think that the communists will step down if you ask them nicely enough? Even after Tiananmen Square Protests of 1989 (六四事件)?

A quote from V for Vendetta (2005) comes to mind:

Q: If they do, what do you think will happen [the people protest against their Government]?

A: What usually happens when people without guns stand up to people with guns.

How do you think the CCP or any other party got into power and maintained that power in the first place? Obviously through violence. And likely due to earlier Japanese invasions which weakened the Guomindang.

And the CCP actually uses "the ends justify the means" as an argument to justify its own actions: As long as China is developing economically, it is fine to violate the human rights of a few million people (只要经济好,我不在乎人权).

The question of if anything is morally right or wrong makes no sense. All that matters is: what is the government that maximizes the happines of its own people, and who has the power to do what? Getting richer, is part of the equation, but so is not being constantly affraid that you will be randomly put in jail for no good reason.

Baby Hitler vs 5 million Jews trolley problem
Figure 61. One baby Hitler or 5 Million Jews trolley problem illustrates well the moral dilemma of "the ends justify the means".
What Chinese men really want
Figure 62. Translation: What women think men want (a kiss). What men actually want (decapitating Xi Jinping (习近平, 2012-∞, Heil卐!)). The image from the left comes from the Japanese manga Okaeri Alice according to Reddit comments. The image to the right is based on an illustration of the decapitation of Louis XVI (路易十六) during the French Revolution (法国大革命), but with Louis' head replaced by Xi Jinping’s head.
