While the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) systems for industrial warfare are on the main stage, the CCP is fighting its own internal battles. China has a population of roughly 1.4 billion, which the CCP is trying to subdue and control with the generationally weak strategy of communism.
By their very nature, capitalism and communism cannot possibly coexist—as the CCP has shown through its attempted economic reforms starting in the late 1970s. These two systems have been forced together rather like deflecting magnets. The hallmarks of communism are to subdue and control, and to regulate this control by steering a population in just one direction: struggle. Among the few remaining freedoms under the CCP is the freedom to make money.
Any exposure to God, decency, morals, or reflection on how other people around the world live is simply not tolerated, even in the same breath. Entire peoples are being subjugated and repressed—including the Chinese race itself—and this is leading to massive corruption right across the social control structure. This corruption is becoming so bad, and the magnets so hard to keep together, that it is completely exhausting the CCP.
To alleviate this internal pressure, the CCP has built a massive industrial warfare fighting machine focused on exerting that force outward. This has resulted in the CCP directing people to use foreign investment, economic theft, and other methods to seize the wealth of the world—and to move the internal pressure away from the mainland.
At work beneath the surface is a choice for China’s leaders. They can either continue their programs of foreign theft and competition, or they can relax the oppressive system currently in place within China.
Either they engage Chinese history and become a different, more capable China, or they fight to keep in place a communist system that has clearly become obsolete in the 21st century—a path that is becoming less viable as the world places more pressure to stop the CCP’s programs of unfair economic competition.
This international pressure against the CCP’s economic programs is pushing China’s leadership in the direction of restoring fairness, dignity, and honor to the Chinese nation—or else lose everything.
If, however, China’s leaders decide on taking the alternative path, and instead shift back into the full communist system in the face of increasing U.S. economic pressure, this may very well move them toward the option of war. Yet there will still be a choice of battlefield; it can be either a kinetic war, or an industrial war.
Kinetic warfare could very well involve missiles, bullets, and nuclear weapons. The CCP has developed hypersonic missiles, anti-satellite systems, naval power methods, sea-based missile systems, inexpensive fighter jets, drones, and just about every type of system America has been investing in over the past five decades. The CCP also has its secretive “Assassin’s Mace” weapons that remain somewhat of a mystery to the West. These are weapon systems made for surprise attack and rapid victory.
The Chinese already have their missiles on hair-trigger alert, which means that they are ready for war of the most devastating kind. This suicidal position cannot be sustained without some form of exchange taking place, leading to speed-based escalation where higher levels of military exchange and national pride can result in decisions being made against the survival of humanity.
Industrial warfare, on the other hand, is about taking care of your people. It’s about changing the culture upon which your country exists. This is not shareholder culture. It’s workforce culture.
Currently, the conflict is heading in the direction of industrial warfare, and whether the CCP agrees to sit down for negotiations, and the terms that are decided, will determine the future of this conflict.
For the United States, industrial warfare means preparing the workforce to take back American manufacturing jobs, bringing those jobs back into the country, and bringing pride back to the American populace. This is among the main things that got Donald Trump elected. He made promises based on fighting an industrial war, which the American population and the world population was expecting throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.
