The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader, Xi Jinping, gave the keynote speech at the Boao Forum for Asia on Tuesday. In his controversial lecture, he admitted his plans to use the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to impose on the entire world the CCP’s vision of rules and standards to be met, seeking to completely displace the United States and Europe as the world’s leading powers.
As usual, Xi Jinping’s speeches were disguised within friendly, optimistic, and even emotional phrases, but behind the kind words, the dictator once again revealed his dark intentions to take the CCP to the top of world power.
What Xi actually described, underneath all his globalist talk about “multilateral cooperation in trade and investment” and “closer partnership for openness and inclusiveness,” was a new unipolar world dominated by the CCP where authoritarian dictatorships will undoubtedly develop and infringe on human rights and democratic freedoms.
He further made it clear that the BRI is the road leading to that destination: “I have pointed out on several occasions that the Belt and Road Initiative is a public road open to all, not a private road owned by only one party. All interested countries are welcome on board to participate in the cooperation and share its benefits. The Belt and Road cooperation pursues development, aims at mutual benefits and conveys a message of hope,” the Chinese dictator assured.
Xi also sought to use China’s coronavirus and climate change as leverage to project Beijing’s power in a weakened Third World:
“In the ongoing fight against COVID-19 (CCP Virus), victory will be ours at the end of the day. We must put people and their lives above all else, intensify information sharing and collective efforts, enhance public health and medical cooperation, and make full use of the key role of the World Health Organization (WHO).”
Much of Xi’s speech was open criticism of Western leadership, especially the United States and European powers.
He said, “We must not allow rules set by one or a few countries to be imposed on others, nor allow the unilateralism pursued by certain countries to set the pace for the entire world. What we need in today’s world is justice, not hegemony. Large countries must behave in a manner commensurate with their status and with a greater sense of responsibility.”
Hearing these words sounds really ironic. The CCP is a country that has consistently ignored the rulings of international courts, that internally is dominated by an authoritarian and undemocratic political caste while persecuting, imprisoning and murdering its political dissidents.
Under the guise of the Belt and Road, the CCP will seek global domination. The CCP virus pandemic caused a generalized impoverishment by destroying the global economy, and China sees it as an opportunity to impose itself as the world’s monetary authority par excellence.
On the other hand, the Belt and Road will surely empower leftist dictatorships such as Venezuela and authoritarian leftist governments such as Argentina or Bolivia in South America.
At the same time, the CCP will seek to wipe the United States off the map in its role as the world’s policeman and guarantor of human rights, supported by Democratic politicians in the United States. They have been demonstrating, in general terms, more and more contempt for their Nation and its history.
China’s tactic will continue to be one of persuasion of governments, institutions, and big business, which will always be rewarded by the CCP as long as they abandon their commitments to human rights and uncritically accept Beijing’s rule.
Joining ‘One Belt, One Road’ means shaking hands with the bloodiest dictatorship in human history. The (supposed) benefit of importing cheap products means being complicit—directly or indirectly—in the forced labor camps where they are produced.
Receiving financing from giants such as ICBC or China Construction Bank Corporation may constitute the last link in the laundering of money from the darkest human practices, such as organ trafficking of persecuted religious believers in China.
