Claim of evil U.S. plot for ‘historical nihilism’ goes viral on Chinese Internet

To denounce one’s past is to doom one’s present; and when one’s present is doomed, one’s future is ruined. That is not something from Confucius or from a Chinese fortune cookie. It is the battle cry of a fierce war on “historical nihilism” being waged by the Chinese Communist Party under President Xi Jinping, who has a doctorate degree in “scientific socialism” from China’s prestigious Tsinghua University, the intramural rival of its next-door neighbor, Peking University.

Carmen Quintana attends a tribute for slain photographer Rodrigo Rojas, outside the Gabriela Mistral museum, in Santiago, Chile, Tuesday, July 28, 2015. During a street demonstration on July 2, 1986, soldiers doused Rojas and then 18-year-old Quintana with gasoline and set them ablaze. Rojas died four days later. Quintana survived and underwent lengthy treatment for severe burns at a Canadian hospital. Her scarred face later became a symbol of the atrocities committed by Pinochet's dictatorship. A Chilean judge last week charged seven former members of the military in the burning death of Rojas, and four other ex-soldiers were being questioned on Monday. (AP Photo/Luis Hidalgo)
