Why the Chinese Demand US Gun Control
The Daily Bell ^ | 12/19/2012 | Staff

Posted on 12/20/2012 7:19:26 AM PST by IbJensen

The official Chinese government news agency, Xinhua, has demanded the US immediately adopt stricter gun control measures to reduce the number of firearms the US populace is permitted to possess. The Chinese state-controlled media's statement, titled "Innocent Blood Demands No Delay for US Gun Control," is primarily focused on the Newtown tragedy in which 26 Americans were killed by a mad gunman. Twenty of the victims were young children. The Chinese government stated, "Their blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control." – Breitbart

Dominant Social Theme: The Chinese are rightfully concerned with US violence.

Free-Market Analysis: The Chinese have weighed in ... Breitbart is reporting that the Chinese government is concerned about US gun violence (see above excerpt). This is notable because it tends to support certain dominant social themes we have noted before.

We do believe that the Chinese, like the Russians and the rest of the BRICs, are part of an effort to create global governance. The British – the City of London being an integral part of this larger effort – virtually ran China and India once upon a time.

While British influence has eroded among the civilian population, chances are the power elite behind past depredations remains quite influential with the political and military class.

There are suppositions that Western powers wanted communism to come to China in the form of Mao because that helped crush China's unique culture and set the stage for the current quasi-capitalism that now engulfs China.

And as we have pointed out recently, both China and the US are converging on a new kind of sociopolitical and economic system that may mimic Germany's National Socialism more than any other political paradigm.

For this reason, we're not surprised top Chinese officials are calling for more gun control in the US. This suits the Chinese system, which is intended, we have no doubt, to more closely merge with European and North American systems over time.

The availability of guns is an impediment to totalitarian, fascism or whatever else the power elite has in mind. Here's more from the Breitbart article:

The Chinese government states:

"The past six months have seen enough shooting rampages in the United States. Just three days ago, three people were shot dead at a shopping mall in Oregon. Two weeks ago, a football player shot his girlfriend dead and then committed suicide. Five months ago, 12 people were killed and 58 wounded in a shooting spree at a midnight screening of a Batman film in Colorado."

The government went on to express a strong dislike of the National Rifle Association while also attacking the Republican Party as somehow complicit in the violence. Conversely, the article heaps praise on the Democratic Party ...

The current Chinese government, the communist People's Republic of China, was established in a revolution led by Mao Zedong, who killed an estimated 40-70 million people with starvation, executions, and re-education camps.

This last point is a very good one. If you are interested in the results of an unarmed populace, look no further than China's Great Leap Forward under Mao.

Whether it is Hitler's Germany or Stalin's Russia, an unarmed population always invites the retaliation of tyrants. And we can also see that gun control does little to reduce violence statistically. Australian officials have been busy disarming their populace but violence is not down appreciably, as it is only law-abiding citizens that allow themselves to be disarmed. Criminals remain armed.

For those who believe as we do in directed history, the specter of aggressive efforts at gun confiscation is not a good sign. Those who are engaged in the promotion of world government are providing us with clear illustrations that they are willing to shed blood to attain it. These individuals and their surrogates practice the philosophy of "the end justifies the means."

But just as importantly, if not more so, the opinion of Chinese officials regarding the positives of US gun control provide us with an insight as to how closely aligned US and Chinese leaders really are when it comes to sociopolitical and economic policies.

The world is being prepared for global government, in our view. The US is being brought down while other countries like the BRICs are being brought up.

The idea that China poses an existential threat to the West is no more convincing, in our view, than the idea that Islam is implacably opposed to Christianity and that a religious war is in the offing.

Conclusion: These are memes of the elite. They are phantasmagoria designed to distract us from the truth that is both more mundane and perhaps more dangerous.

Our major money lender DEMANDS.

Well, why not. They hold the deed to our nation.

Thanks to our knuckle-dragging excuse for a Congress our nation is overgoverned to the point of creating mental disease in many of America's citizens that goes unheaded as we're wasting money and manpower doing other useless things.

It isn't too hard to understand the neanderthal carrying the biggest stick, not wanting anyone else to have a stick. To forcibly strip anyone of their ability to defend themselves is treasonous indeed.

Every time these atrocities happen, firearm and ammunition sales and concealed carry permits soar, and Gov opening its mouth only dumps a tanker load of fuel on the fire. Thank goodness for the sanity of responsible citizens pushing back against the insanity.

Actually, I think this is wonderful.

It makes the point much better than we have been able to:

When your enemy wants to make sure private citizens don't have access to assault weapons...

... it couldn't make the point any STRONGER that private citizens do NEED access to assault weapons.

Am deeply, deeply impressed with my recently acquired little Norenco “non-assualt” SKS folder, a truly indestructible, low-tech, simple and functional thing-of-beauty that should outlast every more fancy weapon by centuries.

Thanks China! I’ll give you a demo when you come for it.

When they come looking behind the ‘blade of grass’ they will find they will learn ‘bout the ‘dangers of boats’ and all the boating accidents across over nation! Epic numbers of accidents everywhere.

I've heard this theory before, but when the time-frame for evolution is so long that no one who would have hatched the plan is still alive to take advantage of the results, it becomes suspect.

Soviet agents in positions of influence in the US government worked hard to make sure Communism came to power in China - for them, at the time, that was reward enough.

That said, and in keeping with the author's point, the middle class lifestyle and consumer culture in today's China are far more similar to what we have the United States than most of the other Asian nations are - even our allies like Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. If aliens landed tomorrow, they probably would have a hard time identifying significant differences in our two countries. China is rapidly adopting our economic system, and we are rapidly adopting their official corruption.

China's "unique culture" of bureaucrats ruling over a nation of docile farmers didn't change much under Communism...but is certainly changing fast now, and becoming just like the equally quasi-capitalist United States. Chinese are free to shop on the Internet, drive minivans, and take family vacations - but they do not dare evade taxes, own guns, or support religions that don't have official government approval. Sound familiar?

That, and they know from Tiananmen Square that anyone with a firearm is a threat. Easy to round up and disappear people if they can’t fight back.

The ‘reeducation camps’ are already here in the form of public schools and the MSM.

It also makes a totalitarian state with powerless subjects more of the norm. If we fall on this, the whole world does.

Agreed. We have the same enemies we have always had... we just ignored many of them for too long.
