A Specific Question: When Will the “Two No Worries and Three Guarantees” be Truly and Fully Realized?

February 16, 2020

In this article, Lu Dachun, a long-time petitioner who previously served a two year-sentence for petitioning-related activities, points out that although the central government has emphasized the need to solve the outstanding problems of "two no worries [about food and clothing] and three guarantees [of compulsory education, basic medical care, and security of housing]," and to achieve the goal of comprehensively building a well-off society, local governments have not implemented the policies properly. This failure, Lu states, has caused some disadvantaged families to fall into difficult or even desperate situation when they suffer a catastrophic disaster.

The writer offers the Lu Bin family of farmers in Peng'an County, Sichuan as an example: Lu Bin is fighting a lawsuit about his permanent disability due to work-related injuries; his wife is suffering from liver cancer and has no money for surgery; his 82-year-old mother is bedridden due to permanent disability but has no one to care for her; and his two children may have to temporarily or permanently drop out of school. The government's temporary assistance of a few hundred to a thousand yuan can't solve the layers of difficult and concrete problems described above. The writer recommends that the CPC Central Committee comprehensively inspect these problems to truly and fully realize the "two no worries and three guarantees."
