A deliciously funny send up of Jack Ma, leading a revolutionary march. The red flags portray his various companies or their logos: Taobao, T-Mall, Alibaba and Alipay. I use them all every week to buy and pay for things and services – even taxis. If Jack is not anorexic, he sure plays the part. In real life, he and every other billionaire in China had better say a daily prayer to Baba Beijing, for rising to the pinnacles of their business empires. This excellent painting, with its communist party-esque flags, is harking much closer to the real truth, than meets the eye. (Image by Bordomsmash.com)
A Chinese friend of mine asked me on the China Rising Radio Sinoland Wechat group (see below), to comment on Jack Ma’s big splash at the Davos Conference this week, where he gave a 45-minute talk. He is the CEO of Alibaba. To learn more about China’s billionaires, here is an article I wrote for my monthly column on The Saker, called the Moscow-Beijing Express. http://thesaker.is/the-moscow-beijing-express-russian-oligarchs-versus-chinese-billionaires/
Here is the blunt reality of the situation:
The West’s owners organize Davos and the World Economic Forum (WEF). This is why Baba Beijing created its own Anti-Davos/WEF, with the now much sought after Boao Forum for Asia (BFA). Thus, Jack Ma was fraternizing with very powerful, ruthless psychopaths, who are obsessed with destroying everything that China has gained, since 1949, and bringing the Chinese people to their knees, in servitude to Western Empire.
Every single one of China’s billionaire set owes their allegiance to the Communist Party of China (CPC). Move on down the line to thousands of multi-millionaires. The CPC is the only reason they exist. The CPC shut out Western competition for years – decades even – not to mention favorable tax and tariff treatment – to give them a chance to grown and prosper, into the world beating titans that they are today.
If any of China’s one-percent go to the Dark Side of Western racism, empire and colonialism, Baba Beijing will not hesitate to give them a humongous capital haircut and/or cut them off at the knees. The aspirations of the Chinese Dream would depend on it. In fact, it’s already starting. The local news is full of billionaires, multi-millionaires and CEOs, being called in for interrogation grillings, often absent for several days. China’s social media is abuzz as to what kind of charges they may face. For Chinese crooks who fled the country, Baba Beijing’s “Sky Net” police program has captured over 1,000 fugitives, one-percenters and returned them home, to face the long arm of communist justice. Sky Net also recovered ¥3 billion ($500 million) in ill gotten gains. Of course you never hear about any of this behind the Great Western Firewall. If you did, the West’s sheeple might wake up and begin to ask why their governments aren’t doing the same thing.
How many Western business people and mega-rich are being questioned by their governments, had their assets seized, or are in criminal court? Please don’t trot out Bernie Madoff, that was eight years ago: the Justice Department’s and SEC’s one-crook poster child. The answer is near zero, unless you mean them or their corporations paying slap-on-the-wrist fines, without so much as having to apologize. Where is Mao Zedong, when you need him? Actually here in Sinoland, President Xi Jinping, Premier Li Keqiang and their administration are filling the breech nicely, risking everything internally, to get rid of government and financial corruption at every level. After all, they often collude together, in mutual greed.
The CPC will never allow another Century of Humiliation (1839-1949) and in order for the Chinese people to stay free, independent, determine their own destiny and benefit directly from their labor and natural resources, they had better hope that the CPC stays in power, under the democratic dictatorship of the people. The first line of defense for the Chinese Dream not to be turned into a Western created, China House of Horrors, is communism’s democratic dictatorship of the people.
In any case, Western “democracy” and “corruption-free” government and business, have always been a hollow mirage, perpetrated by the one-percent, going back to Roman times. The only real democracy the West ever had, was a few brief decades of direct democracy, during the Greek Era. After Greece went to representative democracy, Plato, Aristotle, Socrates and every other notable writer/philosopher of the age complained bitterly about the corrupting influence of money among their legislatures, leaders and the downward spiral into power being concentrated into fewer and fewer hands.
Since then, from the Roman Senate up to today’s Western “free” elections, it is nothing but a Potemkin fiction, thoroughly corrupt, controlled and manipulated by the owners of the system, who lord over almost all of the human and natural resources in their dominion. China, Russia, Cuba, Bolivia, Ecuador, North Korea and Eritrea make up the short list of countries not under Western tyranny. Just a month ago, Venezuela and Argentina were members of this august group. No more (see below).
Many Chinese, especially the more educated and wealthy, sincerely believe that the West’s ersatz “pluralistic”, “republican”, “parliamentarian”, “no corruption” democracies are what the People’s Republic of China should aspire to. They are frighteningly deluded and must imperatively disabuse themselves of this fantasy, for the sake of China’s survival, as a free country. They are almost always surprised when I say that the Communist Party of China is the best thing to ever to happen to them, otherwise, here is exactly what would happen:
If Western colonialists ever get their fangs into China’s economic and political systems, the proud, free Chinese nation will be turned into a huge, balkanized hellhole. Think a gigantic Philippines or Indonesia – both of which are Western lackeys. Also imagine factional warlords tearing China apart, like in Russia in the 90s, and today, the Ukraine, Iraq, Sudan, Nigeria, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, and now Yemen. The CIA, MI6, DGSE, BND and every other Western spy unit would be crawling all over China. The CIA’s heroin empire, which it controls in the Golden Triangle of Burma, Thailand and Laos (also in Afghanistan and its cocaine/marijuana empire in Latin America), would flood the cities and villages of China with hard drugs, just like they do in the West. In a country as big as China, its new Western masters would be pulling off a false flag terror act almost daily: snipers, bombs and pubic slaughter. The West’s proxy armies, ISIS and Al-Qaeda, would be terrorizing Chinese citizens, taking over cities and towns, while massacring thousands. Hundreds of Western financed and managed, so-called “NGOs”, would be ready to trigger color revolutions, wherever the Chinese people stood up to revolt against Western tyranny.
It’s the “Prescription for Enslavement”, brought to you by 21st century Racism, Empire and Colonialism, with their deep states, banks, transnational corporations and military complex.
Just look at what has happened recently in Venezuela and Argentina, where “Western democracy” has ushered in new, extreme rightwing, proto-fascist governments. They immediately started destroying and dismantling decades of socialist improvement in the lives of the poor, children, working class, elderly and farmers: low income housing, universal medical care, free education for all, infrastructure improvements in usually ignored areas of the country, etc. If given the opportunity, these new governments will quit borrowing money from China under favorable terms, for national development. They will instead sell their souls for usurious World Bank and IMF money, for big ticket, one-percent projects which they can never pay back, so these two Western financial vampires can move in and buy up all their public assets and commonwealth for pennies on the dollar. Both new Latin American presidents are sounding and acting like Augusto Pinochet, Chile’s former fascist dictator, whose government exterminated tens of thousands of Chilean citizens. Is this what my Chinese friends really want? Their only protection against this dystopian nightmare is the CPC and its democratic dictatorship of the people. You can add China’s defensive backbone: the People’s Liberation Army (PLA).
As an aside, here is a heartfelt shot across the bow of all my Russian friends: when President Vladimir Putin is put out to political pastures, so to speak, are you going to allow your beloved country and civilization to be another Venezuela or Argentina? Or are you, as a people, going to come up with some sort of creative Russian democratic dictatorship of the people, one that may or may not be countenanced by the majority of your citizens, but has to be implemented as the vanguard against a repeat of the 1990s? I don’t think Venezuelan and Argentine non-one percenters ever thought that what is happening in their proud countries, could come nightmarishly true. President Putin has some of the highest poll ratings among world leaders, but they will not be worth spit, if the CIA, Department of State and Russian oligarchs move in later for the kill. Complacency is the cancer of all high ideals.
Notice that China has hundreds of billions of dollars of investments in all these aforementioned, destroyed countries. It is no coincidence that the West has and continues to target countries where Baba Beijing is successful, in order to frustrate China’s peaceful ambitions and development projects overseas, such as the “Belts and Roads/New Silk Roads”.
I write about all this extensively in my two upcoming books, “China Rising – Capitalist Roads, Socialist Destinations” and “China Is Communist, Dammit!”.
In other words, my dear Chinese friends, the West, with its 21st century racism, imperialism, colonialism, fascism and war, is your mortal enemy, out to destroy your hard fought, post liberation freedoms and Chinese Dream. If you desire, enjoy the West’s commercial, entertainment propaganda – the movies, music, fast food and advertising. But keep your head screwed on straight and your eyes on the prize, which is China’s independence and freedom from Western hegemony.
To that end, quit brainwashing yourselves, using Western mainstream media, like BBC, PBS, MSNBC, Fox, the New York Times, Washington Post – even supposedly “liberal” sites like the Guardian UK, Huffington Post – and on and on. They are all like swallowing “ignorance” pills. If you don’t believe me, just talk to people who live in Eurangloland. It’s sad, but true, the hypnotic, drug-like power of the West’s Bernaysian (or as Neil Postman said, in “Amusing Ourselves to Death”, Huxleyian), commercial propaganda. It’s like smoking methamphetamine or crack cocaine: one hit can be the start of total ruination.
