What if I told you that China currently has over a million dissidents in labor and re-education camps getting tortured, and that hundreds of thousands of these prisoners are actually being harvested for organs on the black market in China (either before or after they die from the horrible conditions inside of these camps), would you believe me?
China is also secretly exporting its highly sophisticated surveillance software to fellow totalitarian regimes, including Russia, Iran and Venezuela, among other nations, so that these countries can implement similar systems that monitor and control their citizens internet usage and social behavior, losing simple freedoms like a plane or train trip with friends, the ability to buy certain foods or to even energy access reduced, or having their phones ring a silly noise that allows everyone to know they are associating with what the People’s Party calls “special deviants.” someone who is a “bad risk‘ to their country, essentially using technology to shame people publicly, or worse, arresting people who are disrespectful to the country on line, on a phone call or in an email. If it was just a small country in some far away land we might say so what. But this kind of over-reaching, all-encompassing government control affects almost 2-Billion people every single moment of every single day.
So much for the Internet bringing freedom to the world. It instead, brought a new kind of tyranny that we though was pure science fiction.
What if I told you that China has over 30 million of its citizens monitoring our country, our people, our businesses, our families, government officials, technology theft of new innovations not even on the market, and our security systems, building dossiers on you and me for future use, would you be a little worried?
As a matter of proportion, more than half of the worlds’ population is already living under the tyranny of China, and as this country develops and expands its global influence it is feasible that within 20 years America will be the only real “free” country on the planet, which means 7.2 billion people will live under tyranny and only America will be free of totalitarian rule, unless of course a Marxist becomes president, which, judging from the current crop of Democrats, is more possible than it has ever been in our 243 year history.
We’re losing. But then again, America was always a long shot to begin with. The notion of self-determination, the idea that the government serves people (and not the other way around) was a novel and new concept, one which spread like fire once we showed the rest of the world it was possible. But now, our impact is lessening. Totalitarianism is growing. China is growing. And even if it wasn’t growing, the fact that over 2 billion people live under this kind of rule right now is appalling enough. The fact that they are exporting this tyranny should anger any one who values the God-given freedom of the human spirit, of the human will.
Belt and Rust. Look into it. Social Credit systems, look into it. Tens of thousands of labor and torture camps have cropped up in western China in the last few years; far and away out of sight, millions of people are being slowly killed by their government. North Korea looks like Disney World compared to what China is doing. In Kim’s they starve, in Xi’s China they are starved.
I urge you to read Orwell’s 1984. Mass surveillance is here. It doesn’t bother me so much that there is a light and camera on every corner. But it does bother me that the people who are watching aren’t the people who installed the video cameras, i.e., local law enforcement or local governments looking to improve traffic safety: it’s countries like China and Russia who hack the watchers and secretly monitor us building those dossiers, or at least gather the data for later use.
And we stupid Americans are worried about Climate Change and Transgender Rights? As if these issue even matter when confronted by such a threatening opponent on the global stage as China, an opponent that can have a decisive influence on humanities direction for the new few hundred or thousand years?
China is Nazi Germany, plus Lenin and Stalins’ Russia all rolled into one for the 21st Century, and as former U.S. Congressman Newt Gingrich stated just a few days ago, ten years from now we won’t be able to stop them from controlling even our own behavior, because they will have found all of our weaknesses (through data gathering), they will have gained backdoor access and be able to shut down parts of our infrastructure; they will have found the “off” switch to our power-plants and airports.
Some say this is already happening.
Soon, it will become harder to find news about China doing these things. Much of what I have noted in this article is easily verifiable – for now and because we have such open access. But in the near future, and for obvious reasons, they will have infiltrated our newsrooms, our internet, our social media and our colleges (which they already have through large grants made to universities who must refrain from criticizing the Chinese government). In Hollywood movies made are actually reviewed – and approved for release – by the Chinese government officials.
And forget not, these tyrannical government leaders, Xi, Putin, Maduro, have no morals, no scruples; they don’t believe in God or Jesus, or human endowments coming “from our creator.” They answer to no one, except to themselves and the power they maintain through control. Hitler answered to no one. Xi answers to only one group and that is the People’s Party, and they are a party that knows it cannot survive without dominance, a country that will not survive without dominance on the global stage.
And we may not be able to stop if they are an army of people who do not believe freedom is important.
But let’s talk about the Mueller report one more time, shall we?
