China’s Exploitation of Globalism and Intrusive Technologies

China’s one-party communist regime has played the West since China’s professed opening of its economy to global trade and investments. It wants to replace the current rules-based international system with one dominated by China’s authoritarian model. To that end, the regime is deftly exploiting multilateral institutions from the World Trade Organization to the World Health Organization to the United Nations itself.

Thus, China has managed to get away with retaining a “developing country” status within the World Trade Organization, which gives it unfair preferences. China has the second largest Gross Domestic Product in the world, surpassed only by the United States. It does not deserve any preferential treatment. But China still gets it.

China’s Vision for a New World Order

China used the World Health Organization to repeat its lies about the coronavirus pandemic, which started in China. If the World Health Organization had been more independent of Chinese influence and questioned China’s knowingly false claim that there was no human-to-human transmission of the virus at a time when the virus could have been more easily contained, hundreds of thousands of lives would most likely have been saved. Yet United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres ingratiated himself to the Chinese regime last February when he praised China’s ‘cooperation’ in the global fight against spread of the coronavirus.

The UN Secretary General’s office responded with a “no comment” when I asked about the pro-democracy candidates for the Hong Kong legislative election who were declared ineligible and the subsequent postponement of the election itself for at least a year. These disturbing developments followed the Chinese regime’s imposition of its new security law clamping down on the remaining freedoms of the people of Hong Kong. Such draconian measures deserve more from the United Nations, which is unsparing in its criticisms of Israel, than a “no comment.”

Working from within such submissive globalist organizations, the Chinese regime’s aim is “to promote its own worldview and concepts while sidelining the existing governance norms and values,” the National Bureau of Asian Research noted in its comprehensive January 2020 report entitled “China’s Vision for a New World Order.” The regime wants to purge as much of the world as it can of the Enlightenment principles of democracy, pluralism, and individual human rights. In their place, China’s communist dictatorship heralds its authoritarian ‘L’état, c’est moi’ as the superior governance model for the world.

The Chinese communist empire has also weaponized social media, telecommunications and cloud computing to steal intellectual property

Instead of clearly drawing moral distinctions between a pluralistic democratic governance model that protects individual liberties and an authoritarian model that tramples on individual liberties in the service of the all powerful state, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres just describes them as two rival systems that risk splitting the world in two. Such a display of moral equivalence is unhelpful, to say the least.

The Chinese communist empire has also weaponized social media, telecommunications and cloud computing to steal intellectual property and to surveil ordinary citizens as well as hack their online data in the United States and across the globe. Globalists have helped make all this possible by encouraging the integration of China into the world economy, falling prey to the ancient Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu’s stratagem that “All warfare is based on deception.”

President Trump has challenged the conventional wisdom, including by issuing executive orders addressing the threats posed by the apps TikTok and WeChat, currently owned by Chinese companies ByteDance Ltd. and Tencent Holdings Ltd. respectively. President Trump grasps what is at stake and has taken strong actions to push back at the Chinese regime for its belligerent acts. One cannot say the same about Joe Biden and his fellow globalists at the United Nations.

  1. The reasons for our present dilemma with China have been brilliantly analyzed and placed in their historic context by the investment banker Ray Dalio, a billionaire who has become a self-taught historian, and especially a historian of world economic systems. Mr. Dalio’s writings are available online for free at his website https://www.principles.com. Dalio’s analysis fully confirms that of Mr. Klein . But by putting China’s behavior into the context of competing world systems throughout history, but especially since 1929, he helps us to better understand the CCP’s, objectives, the economic imperatives leading them to choose these objectives, and the likely outcome of their drive for world dominance.

    Dalio’s conclusions, although he expresses them in gentle language and more by implication than directly, are extremly scary. He maintains that historically, when the world is hit by a major economic depression, and this economic coincides with the rise of a new world power, the likely result is a bid by the new world power to challenge the existing the dominance of the established world powers, and to chieve world domination. Despite rapidly increasing military power and economic production, the “new” power still faces grave economic problems connected to the world depression. It is likely to be ruled by a dictator or oligarchy with absolute power, and a ruthless attitude towards achieving its goals. As the existing dominant powers are ievitably forced to resist resist the efforts of the newly emerging world power to dominate the world’s economy, it will almost always resort to
    war against the established world power or powers (in the thirties, Britain supported by France and the United States, and now the United States alone). As it faces more and more difficulties in exporting its goods and in importing the necessary raw materials (such as petroleum), and as it faces boycott’s that interfere with it economic growth and popular support at home, the rulers of this new power seek to conquer the existing powers in order to impose subservient governments on them and gain control over their economies.

    Dalio thinks that the result could be either a protractd cold war between China and the united States, or if that goes against the Chinese, an all-out shooting war. If Dalio is right, we Americans and Israelis faced a very dark, clouded future.

  2. Also very helpful in understanding our present dilemma vis-a-vis China is a video by market analyst Ted Bauman, who runs the banyanhillpublishing.com site. Bauman explains that U.S. tax policies penalize companies that employ large numbers of American workers, while rewarding those companies (like Apple) that employ few American workers. Employers are penalized by having to pay their employees medical expenses, and by having to pay a payrole tax. Bauman points out that no other advanced industrialized country has imposed these expenses on private companies.

    Companies have responded to these unfair taxes by moving their factories to foreign countries that do not tax them so heavily. Also,The U.S. does not tax companies for employing foreign labor.

    However, this massive outflow of U.S. capital is “unsustainable ” in the long run. Because the U.S. has driven away the companies that used to provide its tax base, it has been forced to support its operations by deficit spending. That includes the massive sale of U.S. treasury bonds abroad. However, this massive outflow of American money will eventually cause foreign investors to lose confidence in the United States dollar. When that happens, foreign currencies will be “revalued” against the dollar, causing severe inflation in the U. and loss of purchasing power for American consumers.
    The dollar’s value could decline by as much as 50 per cent, which would force millions of American middle class people into poverty.

    Politically and in terms of national security, the consequences are even worse. Our economic dependence on China and other foreign countries for the essential goods that Americans need allows these foreign governments to steal our intellectual property, hack American accounts, steal our military secrets, etc., while we can do little about it, because we depend on these foreign countries to provide us with essential goods and services.

    Bauman thinks the only possible solutions are a) bring American companies home by changing our tax laws to make them more friendly to American manufacturers and retailers, and b) increasing taxes to pay down the national debt and and prevent hyperinflation resulting from massive deficits.

    Bauman is optimistic that the u.S. will implement these changes over the next ten years. But what will happen if we don’t?
