Made in China is a mutating phrase depending upon its political context. At one time, made in China inferred precision manufacturing and low prices. If clothing was made in China the stitches were precise, uniform, and accurate. Tools, computers, sports equipment, shoes, furniture, virtually anything made in China was considered high quality low price. What happened?
Quintessentially made in China – the Cultural Revolution
China’s Cultural Revolution is the
sociopolitical movement in China from 1966-1976. Launched by Mao Zedong, Chairman of the Communist Party of China (CPC), its stated goal was to preserve Chinese Communism by purging remnants of capitalist and traditional elements (imperialism) from Chinese society, and to reimpose Mao Zedong thought (Maoism) as the dominant ideology in the CPC.
Chairman Mao was ideologically a Marxist-Leninist. This hybrid political philosophy of gradualism seeks to establish a socialist state in preparation for an eventual communist state. Communism is the collectivist socio-political system marketing itself as, “a classless system with common ownership of the means of production, with full social and economic equality of all members of society.”
Seducing people by proclaiming the “evil” of private wealth
The seductive narrative of the Chinese Cultural Revolution was that capitalism was evil and had to be removed by violent class struggle. Mao engaged young people to participate in “purging” the country through widespread destruction of historical, religious, and cultural artifacts. Sound familiar? It should. China’s Cultural Revolution was a reeducation campaign to erase China’s history and culture.
Mao’s Marxist-Leninist dogma is the source of the “social justice” and “economic equality” narrative one learns in American universities, in American high schools, in American middle schools, and even elementary schools K-12. Marxist-Leninist dogma is the root of the slogans that indoctrinated Americans echo like parrots at political protests, and that paid political anarchists shout while burning American cities.
Made in China again: the U.S. Department of Education
The weaponized education of disinformation began when Jimmy Carter established the Department of Education in 1979. It has succeeded in graduating indoctrinated, impassioned, American Marxist-Leninists. They are the ideological soldiers in the American Cultural Revolution seeking to:
- erase our history and culture,
- overthrow the government, and
- replace our free-market capitalism with socialism.
The Chinese communist narrative has been unapologetically adopted by Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists in the United States. Even the black-fist BLM flag derives from the red-fist communist flag. Many more similarities exist.
Where BLM comes from
Marxist-Leninist teachings are the central thesis of the Culture War on America that America’s enemies launched after WWII. They remain the source of today’s American Cultural Revolution. Which seeks to purge American history, American values, American culture, and American capitalism. Soeren Kern’s explosive July 2, 2020 article, “Black Lives Matter: ‘We Are Trained Marxists’” describes the effort.
On the surface, Black Lives Matter (BLM) presents itself as a grassroots movement dedicated to the noble tasks of fighting racism and police brutality. A deeper dive shows that BLM is a Marxist revolutionary movement aimed at transforming the United States – and the entire world – into a communist dystopia.
They declare themselves
Kern quotes Black Lives Matter (BLM) leaders. In there own words:
We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia [Garza] in particular, we’re trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories.Patrisse Cullors, July 22, 2015.
We are anti-capitalist. We believe and understand that Black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system.Movement for Black Lives (M4BL), of which BLM is a part, June 5, 2020.
Basic Marxist-Leninist theory: the universal common
Marxist-Leninist teachings have their roots in the false premise of collectivist, common ownership. Mao’s collectivist proletariat ownership is not equivalent to private property ownership in free market capitalism. Communism’s common ownership exists in theory only because the Communist Party controls production and distribution of all goods and services. This means that no individual can buy, sell, or profit from anything that any individual produces. In practice, the party owns everything, including the citizens. The centralized government has absolute and total control of the people. The fatal flaw of theoretical ownership is that it leaves no incentive to work.
Made in China – observe the results!
The centrally planned economy of China’s Cultural Revolution was a disaster. When President Richard Nixon visited China and met with Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai in February 1972, Nixon said at a banquet in his honor: “This is the week that changed the world.” It was. The cold war balance of power shifted, and China tilted toward the U.S, and away from the Soviet Union. Rapprochement opened U.S. trade with China.
Trade with China was an economic bonanza for the globalists. China was an untapped labor market with .86 billion people in 1972. Today it is the world’s largest population at 1.43 billion. American corporations could manufacture their goods very cheaply in China. Then they could sell them globally at enormous profits. China’s interests were economic growth and the development of Chinese industry.
Realpolitik – not exactly made in China but dovetailing nicely with it
Henry Kissinger, Nixon’s Secretary of State and globalist extraordinaire, practiced Realpolitik. Realpolitik is diplomacy based on particular circumstances and practical objectives rather than ideology. At the time, America was looking for:
- An immediate end to the Vietnam War, and
- Cheap labor for quality, precision manufacturing.
China was looking forward to their long-range future. The problem with Realpolitik is its focus on immediate circumstances and short-term gains. It seriously undervalues the power of ideological commitments and strategic long-term gains.
Chairman Mao established a long-term system of economic development that required:
- Foreign investments in China, and
- Partnering with the Communist Chinese central government.
So, while American companies were busy making huge immediate profits, the Chinese were busy stealing our technology and innovation for their long-range plans.
China’s Cultural Revolution was a murderous reeducation effort, and the death toll remains a classified state secret. The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, an anti-communist organization created in 1993 by an Act of Congress, estimates the death toll of communism at 100,000,000. The purpose of the Memorial Foundation is “educating Americans about the ideology, history, and legacy of communism.” The Foundation is an abject failure. It simply cannot compete with the anti-American dumbed down K-12 education, the university propaganda, and the globalist mainstream media indoctrination.
You think the American Cultural Revolution cannot succeed in America? Think again.
Obama – and others – look at another sort of Chinese import
Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” America.
His eight years of job-killing economic policies sent American manufacturing to China and weakened America. His eight years of political correctness, moral relativity, and historical revisionism supported the anti-American, Marxist-Leninist propaganda indoctrinating our children through Common Core.
The first casualty of freedom is always free speech. The colluding globalist Internet behemoths are curating and censoring news with impunity. They are even censoring the President of the United States! The mainstream media defends China and advances the radical leftist anti-American, Marxist-Leninist narrative. Why?
The globalists need the social chaos from the radical leftists, particularly Antifa and BLM, to make the country ungovernable in hopes of defeating Trump in November. Here is the problem.
Made in China – a Trojan dragon
While Kissinger was busy congratulating himself on opening trade with China, and the globalists were busy congratulating themselves on the profitability of exploiting China’s cheap labor markets, China was quietly pursuing its China Dream of becoming the premier global superpower by 2049, the 100 year anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. The China Dream, a 2010 book written by military strategist Chinese Colonel Liu, advised against antagonizing the United States.
The competition between China and the United States will not take the form of a world war or a cold war…. It will be like a protracted “marathon.” China’s Hundred-Year Marathon will be a struggle for supremacy over economics, trade, currency, resources and geopolitical alignments.
The traitors’ gallery
What better way for China to win the hundred-year marathon than to support the American Cultural Revolution with ideological, material, and financial support for Marxist-Leninist Antifa and BLM. The 279 globalist companies that manufacture and/or do business in China are supporting the insurrection. They promote the fiction that America is a white supremacist country of institutionalized racism. The vulgar “virtue-signaling” actions like the National Basketball Association’s decision to paint Black Lives Matter on the court floor, and the National Football League’s decision to sing the “Black National Anthem” are corporate complicity in the American Cultural Revolution.
The globalist elite and the Communist Chinese have common cause to defeat Trump in November. Their shared objective is to install a pro-Chinese, radical leftist Democrat, like Joe Biden, in the oval office.
Today’s American Cultural Revolution is not Orwellian, it is made in China.
