Posted on 12/16/2012 12:02:59 PM PST by Starman417
Chinas ascendance in our consciousness has been growing steadily for a generation, and we wonder what more impact it will have than has already been felt by our economy and our society. We cannot accurately predict Chinas future or its actions going forward, but as it flexes its newfound powers to reshape global conventions, we should remain vigilant that our own perceptions not be warped by ideologically, or otherwise tainted assertions.
Our enthusiastic media collectively extol the moral legitimacy of Chinas communist model of political rule which controls 1.3 billion people, and predicts that China's surpass of the U.S. economy is just over the horizon - scarcely visible as that may be through the toxic haze. Should untarnished freedom be a fundamental human right nurtured within a true democracy, then such adoration of China by our leaders, scholars, pundits and so many others, challenges the core tenets at the heart of the Constitution.
Defenders of the ethos imposed through coercion within China, rationalize that stomping all over individual rights is a necessity which protects the needs of the collective. Somehow when such justification is vaunted by our own self-anointed intelligentsia with the always present caveat that, after all, how else can you rule over 1.3 billion people? . . . . we capitulate. All the while our internal turbulence leaves us in visceral disarray. The virtuosos of the PR machines make it all right that we send (through spending) trillions of our dollars to enrich a regime which recent history (1950s and 1960s) has evidenced as the most ruthless in human history.
As China today shuffles its leadership we are provoked into accepting that the shifting of nameplates is founded on meritocracy and not on handpicked automatons perpetuating dictatorship. The reality that much of the current Chinese leadership is formed by the natural laws of heredity and that the sons of well-known revolutionaries today take up the mantel, does not appear to trouble our cognoscenti in the West. Xi Jinping who will be shortly confirmed as Chinas leader is one such princeling. We should remember that in China the Communist Party controls the army and one only touches the levers of power after having held very senior military posts (read: demonstrated ruthlessness).
Should we accept the propaganda (East and West) that virtue rises to the top and that Chinas leadership is genetically virtuous and molecularly superior? How affected are we when our media refers to Chinas Communist era, as if it was some unfortunate ephemeral occurrence of the past, or simply a fading authoritarian dragon which lost its repressive teeth? Just because the Communist Party has carefully allowed some private sector to coexist with state controlled enterprises, does not mean it has relinquished any authority over business, over media, over education, and it is on guard against any de-politicization of the countrys vast military machine. The secretive Organization Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee controls assignments in government and industry. The boot is firmly on the neck.
Recent leaks which the Central Propaganda Department missed, suggest that the high level of corruption within the Communist Party is pervasive. The submissive population cannot react since it knows the potential of the beast camouflaged behind smiles. It knows the despotic force which controls its nation. This is the virtuosity that is so confident that it siphons its billions off-shore, acquiring hard assets like real estate in safe havens like San Francisco, Sidney and Vancouver. The pretence of stability provided by the virtuous Communist Party may not be so well founded given that it cannot explain why so many of its wealthiest have ensured themselves foreign pieds-a-terre? It is incapable of explaining why so many of the wealthy have moved their families offshore while they continue to amass personal wealth within China. One acquaintance close to such events reminded me that it is very expensive to move money offshore from China because there are so many hands which have to be taken care of on the way out. Is this virtuosity so prevalent that millions of people, both rich and not as rich, leave the country for foreign shores as soon as they possibly can?

Western liberals can only dream of the power to chase pregnant women down and chop the babies from their womb like the Chi-coms.
With obamacare, they will be able to murder grannie, grandpa and the kid in the wheelchair. A whole new killing field for liberals. Look at what fun they have in Britian hospitals refusing to give food and water to the elderly.
I learned it takes about ten days for liberals to carry out each murder. That means they get to watch another human being suffer for ten days until they die. It’s all for the collective...don’t judge! Judgement of liberalism’s pure evil is the worse sin.
Does the Chinese Communist Party still invoke Marxist-Leninist ideology? Is Marxism-Leninism still taught in the schools?
after all, how else can you rule over 1.3 billion people?
All in all an interesting article.
I'm confused...is he talking about red china or the USA?
FUBO and all your marxist underlings.
