Capitalism Killed Off Communism; Here is China’s Dilemma

Not every Chinese citizen in China likes the CCP, especially messing with what has become a Capitalist nation essentially, since Mao and his crowd joined their honorable ancestors. Yes, even today, entrepreneurs and millionaires can develop ideas and are encouraged to grow and make money so long as they don’t run afoul of the CCP’s plan to make a Socialist China the world’s economic and military powerhouse. Yes, I said socialist. Capitalism killed off Communism; they just won’t admit it!

So, one may ask, just how solid is the CCP’s grip on its own country?

China’s export economy drives its ambitions, and the products it exports are based on what technology they’ve stolen or incorporated from the US, Russia, the UK, Germany, Sweden, France, etc. Indeed, every Western nation that produces some form of technology has been victimized by China either by spying or offering cheap labor to produce their products then keeping the copyrights. It was a trap we fell into because of cheap labor, so China spends nearly nothing on Research and Development (R&D) because it’s easier to steal it or buy it. The Soviet Union did that until they ran out of money.

But, China right now is looking a lot like Japan in the 1980s. Remember when they were over here buying up American properties? We didn’t mind that they were buying property because property was taxable and couldn’t be uprooted and moved to Japan when their crash came. But, the supposed economic miracle of China’s post-Mao growth with cheap labor and its vast mineral resources wasn’t recognized by our policymakers for what it really is, a coming repeat of Japan’s economic collapse.

China is experiencing serious economic problems of its own.

Some Chinese companies have overextended to the point of bankruptcy, and the CCP doesn’t know how to fix it. China has rising labor costs and, like we have done, are farming out projects to other countries, like Bangladesh, Vietnam, and India even, because of their cheap labor costs. If they’re not making profits, then they’re going to follow Japan’s model and end up in the ditch. 

China’s vast labor pool, mostly low-paid, uneducated people from China’s interior who are no longer interested in the CCPs propaganda, are experiencing the joys of Capitalism and want a piece of it. As they are not unionized and the CCP has a vast military-security apparatus ready to settle labor problems, the tension will build up into seething resentment until a break does occur. 

The CCP cannot afford their united China to break up and return to its once squabbling little collection of War Lord states by not sharing the fruits of commerce with the laborers who make the stuff we buy from them. It could be the spark that starts China’s breakup. Presently, China is building a mighty military machine with a blue water navy, aircraft carriers, smartly uniformed soldiers, and sailors who can march beautifully in line like programmed robots. They build fighter planes that look exactly like ours, but that cost a lot of money. 

Emperor Xi’s eyes are focused on Taiwan, and he’s gearing up to snatch up what he believes is rightly China’s property. He knows attacking Taiwan will unleash a counter-military response from Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, and the United States perhaps⏤if Joe hasn’t decided to give it away as the easier solution to avoid conflict. Recall British PM a statesman named Neville Chamberlain? That’s what Xi is counting on, but Japan and South Korea may disagree. 

If the principles of economics hold true, China’s thirty years of astounding economic growth can’t go on forever.

When that limit is reached, there can be no profits, and without profits and sharing the wealth with its labor force, and paying its bills, China could very well spin out of control. To prevent that, they must turn to militarism to keep their own people in check, which costs money.

Besides, China is trying to buy the world with monetary loans of aid to poor African and South American countries to upgrade their economies then but, when the pledge can’t be met, they take possession of ports and facilities in repayment to establish local Chinese hegemony without ever firing a shot. They’re doing it right now.

I mentioned that a vast number of Chinese citizens don’t really like the CCP or the ultra socialist surveillance control of their daily lives, because we see resistance. Christian churches, the Falun Gong sect, and even the one-child only families of some years ago, whose sons are now being drafted into the People’s Liberation Army, object. If some Chinese are subtly pushing back on the CCP because they don’t trust them, I wonder why America’s entertainment, sports, and big corporations are not doing so as well. It’s still the love of money, production by cheap labor, and higher profits, that’s why! All that sounds good on paper, but like America, their regime has only two legs to stand on, their vast bureaucracy, like our Deep State, and a military security apparatus that our country appears to be adopting. As soon as Joe and Gen. Milly purges the ranks of our military’s conservatives, the deed will be practically completed.

Mao must be rolling over in his grave. Mao formulated and wrote down the ideological principles in his little Red Book for all to read simply don’t exist anymore. Oh, yes, they’re still preached to by the party, but the Chinese people offer lip service to them, so they’re not shot. So, having a declining belief in Communism, what one thing will motivate the Chinese? Only Nationalism, in other words, China itself, the old beliefs, the ancestor worship, respect for family, and making money.

What will American corporations do to protect their economic investments in China, especially as the Chinese government starts to blame foreigners? America and Japan will catch hell for China’s problems? It’s happened before, and China hasn’t forgotten Japan. What Japan did to China and Manchuria in WWII has not been forgotten or forgiven. America and Japan stand as China’s mortal enemies, and so does Russia. Everybody over there is gearing up for war. Japan is building aircraft carriers again, and some really splendid submarines and their fighting aircraft will come from us for a while. Will China be ready? Will we? Time will tell, and time is growing shorter by the year.  

Remember, freedom is the goal; the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!

Joe Biden Is Right! Trump’s MAGA Movement “Are a Different Breed of Cat”

With no thanks to $1.9 trillion in blowout Democrat spending, America is experiencing four-decade high skyrocketing inflation, now at 8.3% compared with 1.7% inherited from Trump a mere year and a half ago when Biden took office. As for being “a different breed,” that’s a very welcome contrast with disastrous domestic and foreign policies his administration has already foisted…

A Crime’s a Crime! What Makes a Hate Crime so Special? 

Buffalo and NY State police authorities knew of the teen’s derangement and made some early efforts to corral him, but he still got loose. It’s they who should be held responsible, not Tucker Carlson. Mass shootings have become a common recurrence, it seems. This time last year, we experienced a similar number of mass shootings, on average ten per week. 2021 ended with 693 mass shootings, and there were 417 in 2019. What’s happened?

Mortgage applications to purchase a home dropped 12% on a weekly basis and are down 15% compared with the same week one year ago. The housing bubble will not survive without low interest rates.

Race-Baiting Is the Name, and Gun-Grabbing Is the Game

Listening to Governor Hochul will leave an outsider to believe that Buffalo, NY, is filled with hatred and a place where there is the extremism of white people against black people, which is far from the truth. There should be crimes against criminal politicians who use isolated tragedies to advance their political platforms that feed into their nefarious agendas…

The Power to Shape the Narrative is the Power to Control the Outcome

Setting up the “Disinformation Board” and rolling it out under the DHS moved the “Overton Window” of conceivable action closer to the Marxist ideal of information control. While they’d have liked to “legitimize” their influence on media companies with edicts from a DHS Board, the ideological alignment of the major media companies is already working steadily to undermine…

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…
