While the West is obsessed with “jobs, jobs, job,” – that is, economic growth – and while its leaders are obsessed with winning the next election, China is quietly taking over the world’s economy. And, as a consequence the eventual dominance of the world.
Historically, China has seen itself as the superior race and the superior culture (just like most other tribes and nations). It saw the West as a bunch of barbarians. Then, because of the scientific revolution and the writing of The Wealth of Nations, by Adam Smith, China fell by the wayside in the advance of history. The nations of the West saw China and the Chinese, in the same light that China historically saw the West.
Now, with the collapse of classical communism – due in large part by the U.S.’s persistence in Vietnam, China has created a new historical synthesis.
The U.S. is broke and China is drowning in cash
The U.S. is $20 trillion in debt and its last deficit was over $1 trillion, China is sitting with over $1 trillion in cash. They could possibly buy up the whole of New York City.
China – with its synthesis of the Ideas of dictatorship, communism, free enterprise, Confucianism, and raw nationalism – is outcompeting every economy in the world. Virtually every major country has a trade deficit with China.
China is using much of this trade deficit – that is, cash – to invest in countries throughout the world. It is planning to invest over $1 trillion in the infrastructure in East Africa. It doesn’t take much thought to imagine how much influence they are going to have over the politics and economics in Africa.
China is also using its trade surplus – as well as the taxes on the citizens – to bolster its military. China currently has two million men in uniform as compared to the U.S.’s 1.4 million men. Thus, if it ever came to that, we can imagine that a ground war with China would be impossible. Plus, China is a dictatorship. It can force as many men in the military it pleases, while it costs up to $1 million a year to support each U.S. soldier fighting overseas.
Added on to this discrepancy is the fact that the U.S. is broke: broke, broke, broke. The current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have cost $3 trillion so far — and no end in sight. Any new war would have to be paid for by borrowing from future generations – in addition to the $20 trillion credit card bill we are already handing them (with a current interest rate of $380 billion per year — and rising).
Then added on to this problem is the fact that Americans are tired of war. We have been at war for 15 years now. And these were wars of choice– we didn’t have to go to war. We just decided to. Iraq and Afghanistan didn’t invade us, nor even threaten to invade us. The polity is saying: “Ok, enough is enough. We don’t want to go to war with China. Not interested.”
Like an anaconda snake, China is slowly moving to dominate all the small countries that surround it. It has built an artificial island in the South China Sea and has now put missiles on this island that can attack U.S. ships for hundreds of miles around without warning.
Currently China has more missiles, ships, and submarines in Southeast Asia than the U.S.
While many of these small countries are dependent on the U.S. for protection, U.S.’s only threat to China is a nuclear war or economic pressure. It seems that the U.S. would lose a limited war in Asia with China.
Also while we have troops stationed all over the world to be the policemen of the world, China can concentrate all their military might in Asia.
Sure, we have some technological advancements that they don’t have, but with their efficient stealing of our technology it will only be a few years before they catch up with us.
(Because of the mandatory, dysfunctional elements of the civil rights movement we have laws that insist on racial diversity at the highest levels of our government and in our economy. Thus we must believe that no Chinese person would ever send high level technological secrets to his relatives in China. No Chinese person could be more loyal to China than to the U.S.
That is, once a Chinese person sets his foot on U.S. soil, he will give up 3,000 years of loyalty to China and instantly become loyal to the U.S. This is a mandated belief for every American. Otherwise she is a racist.
Meanwhile China recently flew an advanced jet that was the exact duplicate of one of our most advanced jets; 50% of the CEOs of Silicon Valley are Chinese; and to do business with China, Google and Apple – and others – must give them the basic coding of all their software.)
So, what can the U.S. do?
While the U.S. has a little economic, political, and military power left, we must work towards a world order – that is a world government, that as some power over China. That is, all of the other countries must get together and create a consensus on how to control China.
They can do this largely by economic means: insisting on economic justice in trading and manufacturing policies and using a refusal to buy Chinese produce as economic leverage. Then of course there must always be a threat of military response if China pushes its goals to an unacceptable level.
But most of all Americans must clearly see what is going on.
