The Continuous Crisis Committee
Agenda: Chinese Civil War 1946
"The unyielding army will not win." Tao Te Ching, Chapter 76.
The tides of power have swept over the land of China. Arguably the oldest, continuous civilization that exists on this globe is facing a crisis of identity. More than 4,000 years of monarchical rule has been uprooted by the voice of the people of China who have been under their nobles ever since the impetus of civilization. The Xianhe Revolution of 1912 proved that just because people didn't talk doesn't mean they didn't have a voice to express. Finally there seems to be hope that the people's rule will bring true prosperity after years of mismanagement under the Royal Dynasties.
Like every coin has two sides, there are 2 views on how to lead China into the new age.
These views are represented by the Guomindang- which seeks to establish a government of federalism and social security; all while promoting traditional Chinese values of Confucianism against Western influence and the Communist Party of China- which seeks to set up a Communist order across the land to bring in progress to the people.
Their temporary alliance with each other, due to the looming Japanese threat during World War 2 has served its purpose as the forces of Japan have surrendered. Dark clouds loom over the future of China, as blood will rain down on the pristine soil, containing the essence of peace-givers like Lao Tzu and Confucius. There is only one way to prevent this war from erupting: to come to peace with one another while tackling the various challenges China faces in collaboration.
Will the leaders of the people take up the mantle to save their lands by bowing down to their opponent's ideology or take up arms and ravage this hallowed land for their lustful intentions?
