"Red China" is a term you don't hear often these days,
but it would seem we're about to hear it a lot more.

President Xi Jinping, who has urged more "ideological guidance"
at universities and is calling for a renewed study of Marxism.

ca.news.yahoo.com...



BEIJING (Reuters) - The Internet is the most important front in China's ideological battle against "Western anti-China forces", the country's military newspaper said on Wednesday, adding that online controls were essential to the government's survival.


"Like many officials before him, Xi is steeped in the long-held belief of the ruling Communist Party that loosening control could bring chaos and the break-up of China." The commentary called for a massive "Red Army" of "seed-planters and propaganda teams" to defend the "online Great Wall".



China must defend its "sovereignty" in cyberspace with ideological purity, or "the public will be led astray by the enemy," the People's Liberation Army Daily said in a commentary reposted on the website of Seeking Truth, a leading Communist Party journal.

"Western hostile forces, as well as a few 'ideological traitors' in our country, are using the Internet on their computers and mobile phones to viciously attack our party," it added.

"The fundamental purpose is to use 'universal values' to confuse us, and 'constitutional democracy' to disturb us."
The Communist Party has long railed against Western values, including concepts such as multi-party democracy, judicial independence and universal human rights.

China operates one of the world's most sophisticated online censorship mechanisms, known abroad as the Great Firewall. Censors keep a grip on what can be published online, particularly content seen as potentially undermining the party.
"Western anti-China forces have consistently sought in vain to make use of the Internet to topple China," the commentary added, calling control of the Internet a "hidden war" for the hearts and minds of the public.



Red China is not going to go silently into the night.

The U.S. continues to prod Putin into China's arms.
Xi and Putin may indeed see a military alliance. This
close partnership between Beijing and Moscow is
a disturbing trend. To avoid, the United States
needs to consider how to re-set its relationships
with Russia and China.

Just how likely are China and Russia to ally against the U.S.?

"Adversaries during the long Cold War, Beijing and Moscow have increasingly found common cause in challenging the U.S. and Western-dominated order in Europe and Asia, finding ways both symbolic and concrete to challenge what they see as Washington’s efforts to contain their rise." www.washingtontimes.com...

The Era of the Red Dragon Begins
www.cryptocoinsnews.com...



Americans have had it good for a long time. Since the end of WWII, it has been a privilege to be an American. Since the United States took over the Global Reserve Currency from Britain in 1944 at Bretton Woods, life couldn’t be better for an American. When you have a license to print money that everyone else in the world must use, you can do a lot of things the rest of the world can’t do.

You can create the biggest, baddest military in history. Your culture can flourish with the latest technology in automobiles, computers, sports, media, and Hollywood. You can create, in essence, the world’s most dominant empire since the Romans. For Americans, that’s generally a good thing. Not knowing what real inflation is like (the rest of the world gets that), or to have the indignity of a foreign military base built in your cities because the ruling American empire feels like it. These are things the privileged American has never had to know. Alas, all good things must come to an end. There’s a new global empire growing. It’s been slowly changing the world for the last fifty years. And now, it’s about ready to change everything forever.


This article goes on to talk about Bitcoin in China



China has increased and maintained a massive market share in Bitcoin. According to global financial giant Goldman Sachs, currently around 80% of all Bitcoin is traded in Chinese Yuan. China has maintained more than 50% of the global Bitcoin market ever since Q4 of 2013, when Bitcoin prices exploded almost overnight. It’s like a light came on; Bitcoin was seen as available for purchase, and a stampede that would make Wal-Mart on Black Friday blush began. You can see below Bitcoin was almost exclusively a US Dollar investment from the beginning, but the US Dollar has faded fast since Chinese found out about it.


" Bitcoin was designed to be a part of the future of money. And now China is definitely a part of Bitcoin’s future. Only time will tell if it is for better or worse. Do you think China taking over the Bitcoin market is a good thing? "

If we remain good trade partners, there would be
no reason to fight.... just to be clear, it is the
policy of the US which is pushing the world
toward the outbreak of military conflict.

America’s new nightmare: India, China plus Russia
Posted on 17 May 2015 by Tom Sullivan

"Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi travelled to China on Thursday May 14, for negotiations with President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China. As part of the three day visit Modi hopes to achieve a breakthrough in relations with China, which have so far been hindered by a boundary dispute and territorial claims from both parties. Judging from indirect indicators, the visit might be a game changer in relations between New Delhi and Beijing."

wakeupfromyourslumber.com...

" India is also interested in Russian gas. The country is huge, and does not have enough energy resources. Yes, problems do exist in organizing the supply of gas, for example, because of the difficult terrain involved. However, as the Chinese have shown by building a high-speed railway to Tibet, this is not something insurmountable... ”

Yes, but China preaches Marxism and practices Capitalism.
Either way, the "controlling powers" maintain their power.

Perhaps the future of humanity would be better served
by having China rule the world. Let's hope so.

The minute you set up "online controls" you restrict your usage of the same service you deem "essential".

The internet will be one front in any future war with China, and an important one, but not the ONLY one.

China is so much more advanced than the US in cyber warfare (by all accounts) that American Government internet access will probably be offline in a matter of minutes of any war starting.

Take out the stock market, recall American debt, and blind the US Government by taking out 3 or 4 of the internet hub sites that are located around the world. You'd have chaos in minutes.

Yes, Government communications go through other services separate from the internet, but I'd lay money on them using many of the same communication hub sites.

I don't have a great grip on the differing forms of economics and politics but watched this vid and learned a bit from it .Seems that we are told that some things don't match but like China has shown ,they are doing something correct . Greece is a good study when you take out the western spinn and get down to the brass taxes or so it seems .
So when we look at it from a western set of eyes we see stuff like this .

Anti China forces? Zhe evil west was instrumental in the rise of China. Most people here are happy that the news have turned from whatever happened under mao to the Tinanmen square massacre to chinese doing better each year. And we are still zhe anti china forces? And here I thought Tom Clancy was the problem.

If China and Russia form a military alliance, war with one means war with the other. America wants this.
Elimination of these enemies will restore American hegemony.
Makes you wonder what gives America the confidence to take on both at the same time.
