At Freedom’s Fund USA, we watch and analyze various trends that threaten our freedoms and national security. There is a serious situation that poses a threat toward our democracy, in which we will explain through a series of articles regarding our geopolitical adversary.
America has been known for decades as the ultimate Super Power Nation. In 1945, when the United Nations was established post-WWII, the five leading nations were and continue to be: United States, UK, China, Russia, and France. However, we have a competitor that is fast approaching in their attempt in expansionism and global dominance. This competitor is fierce and has waited a long time for this moment in history. And if America’s rival wins…it will be the end of our nation as we know it. Who’s our greatest threat? CHINA.
The Chinese Communist Party (known as the CCP) is the current ruling party of China. According to the Council on Foreign Relations, the CCP has had a monopoly on power in China since the Mao Zedong-led party defeated nationalist rivals and founded the People’s Republic in 1949. It has 90 million members and of the 90 million members, 70% are men. In 2012, President Xi Jinping consolidated control over the party by pushing the legislative body to end term limits, which creates a path for him to rule indefinitely. In 2017, the CCP reaffirmed President Xi’s dominance and surrounded him with new officials in order to help him with their agenda to be the 2nd largest economy in the world. According to the Council on Foreign Relations, the CCP was founded in 1921 on the principles of Marxism-Leninism, as they were inspired by the Russian Revolution. A civil war broke out in China and the Communists gained the victory in 1949. The modern Chinese state remains a Leninist system, just like Cuba, North Korea, and Laos. The CCP relies on 3 pillars: control of personnel, propaganda, and the People’s Liberation Army.
In America, we are seeing the ushering in of Communism through various Marxist movements, politicians, censorship, the stripping of our First Amendment right, attack on religious freedom, identity politics, and Communist propaganda in our educational system. We see the “Cancel Culture” movements suppressing our freedoms of speech, thought, consciousness, as they attack our values, principles, and traditions as a nation. In the meantime, we have politicians who are embracing the Marxist ideologies and welcoming China’s influence in America, all the while, not holding China accountable for stealing our Intellectual Property (to include military blueprints), failure to report COVID, grave human rights violations, committing espionage in America, their involvement in Afghanistan, and more. We see politicians on both sides of the aisle implicated by having some sort of tie to China.
China has one goal and one goal only: global dominance. And in order to be the dominant global leader, they must subdue nations through their expansionism and break the only nation that stands in the way of them accomplishing their goal: the United States of America. In the book, “Art of War,” written by Sun Tzu, a Chinese military strategist and general, said “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” China has subdued America from within and it is time that We the People become aware, alert, and awakened to what is occurring in our nation. It’s time we understand the threat toward our freedoms and national security.
There are many incidents and areas of discussion that we could share with you regarding China, especially their threat of war and movement to conquer Hong Kong and Taiwan. However, today, we want to share with you what’s going on right here in America and how we can make a difference. There are 4 areas China has greatly influenced and impacted our nation:
- Entertainment & Culture
- Big Tech
- The Border
In the famous words of Sun Tzu, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
It’s time we know the enemy so we are not defeated.
