The '''Chinese Communist Party''' (''pinyin'' ''' Gongchandang''') or '''CCP''' is the [[leftwing]] [[single party]] [[socialist]] ruling regime of [[Peoples Republic of China]] (PRC). The party is infamous for placing no value on human life and its ruthlessness to maintain and exercise power. According to the authoritative ''Black Book of Communism'', an estimated 65 million Chinese died as a result of the CCP's merciless attempts to create a new “[[socialist]]” China. Anyone who gets in the way is done away with by execution, imprisonment or forced famine. No single individual of the CCP has ever faced an international tribunal for crimes against humanity. Conversely, the Chinese Communist Party has been rewarded with admission to the [[World Trade Organization]], the [[General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade]], and was granted Most Favored Nation trade status by the [[United States]]. This enhanced standing of the CCP among global power brokers and elite has only strengthened the grip of control the Chinese Communist Party has on the lives of the Chinese people who remain without any [[democracy|democratic]] rights in the nation of their birth.
