CHINA: THE WEST IS TAKING THE WORST POSSIBLE COURSE OF ACTION


Western elites are struggling with the task they see as at hand, countering the rise of China and all that comes with that rise. The rise is economic, but with economic growth comes a plethora of changes not only within the nation but outwith it.

To date, the USA along with the UK and others within Europe and beyond have formed a very successful but extremely manipulative cartel that was able through its success to act as global judge, jury and sometimes executioner.

Now China has risen and will continue to rise and this cannot help but have a weakening effect on the erstwhile power of the West. As China continues to rise it cannot help but erode the manipulative power of the West, degrading its ability to preserve western national interests, its dominant influence and consistent decisive power over others. The signs are that China has no intention to replace these functions, but rather only to create relationships that profit all sides without any intent to demand changes within nations other than those agreed to for the purposes of an enhanced trading relationship.

The demands of the West on a great many nations have been many and have often resulted in subversion and/or demonization of systems of governance not to its liking. China shows no signs at all of wishing to do the same as it reduces the West’s ability to do these things.

Yet the western allies are doing all they can to bring down this rival and this threat to their ability to dominate, subjugate and where they feel it necessary punishing those not conforming to their demands. Subsequently, China is taking steps to defend itself from the very obvious and increasing attacks of recent years.

You may have noticed that its spokespersons have stopped mincing their words or responding politely to western attacks. They are now giving as good as they get. This is confusing for western minds that think only in simplistic terms of ‘West and allies good. Others bad.’

Things could have been very different if there was not a seemingly indissolvable group-thought exceptionalism at the root of western elite systems. This group-thought creates an almost unscalable barrier to any kind of progress toward an acceptance of the ‘other’, then seen as an ‘adversary’, or even ‘enemy’.

When you pose yourselves as near, if not totally perfect, then your attitude to others is inevitably one of a superior to an inferior. And the attitude that then prevails is that inferiors need controlling, guiding, warning, threatening… and at times, punishing. To stretch out the hand of friendship in mutual respect to one you consider inferior, or even deviant does not come at all easily.

Western elites are acting akin to terminally spoiled rich kids considering themselves totally entitled, demanding to be treated as little princes. Others, those they consider underlings, are meant to be their slaves. This is what their histories tell them is the natural order of things. It can also be seen as a master and servant relationship. Masters rarely befriend their servants. They are much more more likely to train them into the attitudes they wish them to observe. If they get ‘uppity’ they tend to be taught an increasingly brutal lesson.

But China is no longer a servant for the western colonialists and would-be exploiters. That part of its history is gone forever. Any wish to reimpose this on China was bound to be resisted with all the power and determination the nation could muster. The West is therefore falling into a trap that it needn’t have. It is taking precisely those steps guaranteed to enrage China most, bringing back memories of times when the western ‘master’ did it most harm.
