Spoiler: China is an imperialist state. Even though the mass murderer Lenin’s ramblings about Imperialism were meaningless, one could use them to show that the Genocidal communist regime is an imperialist country according to Lenin.
Capital exports, concentration and merger of industry and capital is a defining characteristic for China. The Belt and Road Initiative’s infrastructure projects, in emerging African and Asian countries, are financed by Chinese banks and built by Chinese construction firms. Most of these projects are unprofitable, making the host countries indebted to the Chinese government.
China has not only fought imperialist war against Tibet, and China also threatens to invade Taiwan and large parts of the South China Sea.
But China has taken Imperialism to the next level. In Lenin’s definition, Imperialism was the final stage of capitalism, an end. China has turned the definition upside down, Imperialism is a means to an end, Chinese domination. China intends to impose its model of oppression, violation of human rights and genocide on the rest of the world.
Spoiler: Today, 3rd of May, is World Press Freedom Day 2021. Press freedom is under duress in many countries and journalists are being harassed, jailed and killed by authoritarian regimes.
It’s not getting better. More journalists were reported missing, imprisoned, or murdered in 2020 than in 2019. A lot of this took place in Belarus where Lukashenka, with support of Putin, decided to clamp down on journalists whose reports about how his police’s brutal attacks on peaceful demonstrators.
Decreased world press freedom goes hand in hand with the increased autocratisation of the world. Autocratic leaders do not want a free press to report about its nefarious activities. Belarus and Russia lead the fight against the free press.
Spoiler: the hypocritical Communist regime wants us to believe that it has eradicated poverty. We all know that there are enormous gaps in income and wealth in China. Instead of acknowledging this, the communist regime banned Thomas Piketty’s book where the rising inequalities in China are analysed. Piketty was told that the book could only be published in China if the truth about China was censored. Piketty refused of course.
Most ordinary Chinese are not aware of this. The regime controls the access to Internet, monitors social media and clamps down on everyone who dares to discuss this or the genocide of the Uighurs or other matters. Those that get caught fear the risk of being tortured.
Chinais fighting a war against the Truth. When the Chinese communist regime is criticised for committing genocide of Uighurs, it tells its critics and the researchers that exposed it, to shut up. When we criticise the Chinese communist regimes for clamping down on Hong Kong’s democracy activists, it tells us to shut up. When we criticise the Chinese communist regime for violating Taiwan’s airspace and waters, it tells to shut up. And so on.
The Chinese regime’s attacks against people who tell the truth is appalling and often absurd. But it is nothing new. The Chinese communist regime has waged a propaganda and disinformation war against us and its own citizens for many years. The Chinese communist regime lies more frequent than we change shirts.
