Summary

This article analyzes the term bourgeois liberalization and describes how it is used by the Chinese government as a label for unwanted U.S. influences. The discussion is based on a review of literature about the Chinese government and a written survey of student opinions at Northern Jiaotong University (Beijing). The Chinese government officially defines bourgeois liberalization as "negating the socialist system in favour of capitalism." The Chinese media consistently emphasizes that the modernization of China must be done in accordance with the four cardinal principles of: (1) maintaining the socialist position; (2) upholding the peoples' democratic dictatorship; (3) maintaining the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party; and (4) upholding Marxism-Leninism and Mao Zedong thought. A student survey indicated an increased usage of the term bourgeois liberalization. Although 57 percent of the students felt bourgeois liberalization ideals are becoming more common because of increased trade with the United States, only seven percent believed that the best way to eradicate bourgeois liberalization is to cease trade or interaction with the United States. Study of bourgeois liberalization provides an opportunity to better understand how one culture has chosen to deal with such a conflict. (Author/SM)
