While no one has come to any consensus about the U.S.-China relationship, many, including the CCP, have begun to label it as a “New Cold War.”
Currently, the CCP and the U.S. administration are engaged in a trade war, and while it may not result in a significant impact on the scope of trade between the two countries as the CCP will likely back down, it remains that the world is at a historic moment, with the CCP at its epicenter. In order to understand the critical nature of this moment, the true nature and hidden agendas of the CCP need to be understood.
In 1946, Winston Churchill’s Iron Curtain Speech announced the beginning of the Cold War, and that: “An iron curtain has descended across the European Continent,” and that the Communist Party, “Constitutes a growing challenge and peril to Christian civilization.” He called upon the U.S. and UK to be united against the communist bloc led by the Soviet Union and its invasion of societies that enjoy freedom. For over 40 years, each successive U.S. administration promoted the same strategy to contain Soviet aggression.
The collapse of the Soviet Union and its communist leadership represented the end of the Cold War, and the world assumed that the communist threat had become something of the past. However, the editorial team of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party recently released two books about the realities of communism and its hidden agenda.
The editorial team of the Nine Commentaries pointed out in the book entitled The Ultimate Goal of Communism that communism was not eliminated, but has infiltrated the world through a scattergun approach. The Cold War has been regarded as the ideological fight between democracy and the communist bloc; however, the book probes deeper into the true nature of communism:
“Communism is neither a trend of thought, nor a doctrine, nor a failed attempt at a new way of ordering human affairs. Instead, it should be understood as a devil — an evil specter forged by hate, degeneracy, and other elemental forces in the universe. The goal of the specter is to ruin humanity.”
In the second book entitled How the Specter of Communism Is Ruling Our World, the authors point out in the preface that:
“Though the communist regimes of Eastern Europe have disintegrated, the evil specter of communism hasn’t disappeared. On the contrary, this evil specter is already ruling our world, and humanity must not harbor a mistaken sense of optimism.”
The book pointed out that the evil specter of communism and its various mutations are blanketing the world with modern banners and slogans with pseudo-righteous intents in science, equality, democracy, environmentalism, globalism, and political correctness to promote its ideology and to infiltrate all aspects of society. The communist ideology supports vanguard art, sexual liberation, drug legalization, homosexuality, and other indulgences of human desires, giving the mistaken impression that it’s part of a popular trend. The book notes that communism employs different variants to achieve its objectives:
“Yet its fundamental purpose is to destroy, by whatever means, everything traditional, whether it be faith, religion, morality, culture, the institution of the family, art, pedagogy, law — whatever it takes to have man fall into a moral abyss and be damned. Even America — the leader of the free world — has fallen prey to attacks by the evil specter. The evil specter’s conspiracy to destroy humankind has almost succeeded.”
China and the U.S.: A modern parable of the farmer and the snake
When we look back at the Cold War between the U.S. and the Soviet Union and examine today’s situation, we may be surprised to find a 100-year conspiracy whereby the Cold War was a strategy of the communists to keep the West focused upon containing the Soviet Union while silently promoting the rise of communism in China. After the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, the violent expansion of communism was converted into a quiet permeation for the purpose of undermining the traditional morals and cultures of humanity.
For example, in 1969, in order to counter the Soviet Union, the U.S. decided to work closely with communist China and began its contact policy under the Nixon administration. At that time, the CCP was at the critical stage of realizing its 100-year plan. Chinese divine culture had been systematically destroyed by the Cultural Revolution and the CCP was facing economic collapse. The shift in the U.S. toward a contact policy gave birth to the modern version of The Farmer and the Snake parable.
In 1969, the gross domestic product (GDP) value of China was US$79.7 billion and per capita GDP was just US$100. By 2017, the figures grew to US$12.24 trillion and US$8,826, respectively. Over the past 50 years, China’s GDP has increased over 150 times while its GDP per capita grew 88 times.
How does a richer China show its appreciation toward the U.S.? Today’s trade war between China and the U.S. provides the best example. Meanwhile, the aim of the U.S. contact policy has not been realized — although China is better off, the U.S. has failed to keep pace economically.
In February 2018, Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives, said during human rights hearings on the 15the anniversary of China’s WTO accession that U.S. trade deficits have allowed China to build its foreign reserves, to develop its economy, and to strengthen its political power, and all the while: “We chose to ride a tiger.”
Representative Pelosi recalled that before China joined the WTO in 2001, the U.S. had a trade deficit with China of about US$5 billion a year, and “today, actually, rather than $5 billion a year, it is over $6 billion a week, and almost a billion dollars a day.” While economic prosperity for China improved, human rights conditions actually worsened over the same period despite promises made by China to the contrary.
In February 2014, the U.S. Department of State released the 2013 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices and China was reported as still having serious violations. Following the 2011 and 2012 reports, the 2013 report described organs forcibly removed from non-consenting prisoners by Communist China for the third time.
The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), which focuses on religious freedom in countries around the world, listed China as a country of particular concern regarding religious freedom in its annual report last year and again this year clearly noted the forced organ harvesting from Falun Gong members.
Encircling China with a new iron curtain
In the midst of the U.S. and China trade war, the CCP leadership quietly convened a meeting and reconfirmed its status of a “Great Power Diplomacy.” This idea argues that as a rising great power, China should do what it feels is right anytime and whenever it wishes. From the Confucius Institute to the Belt and Road Initiative, the CCP’s efforts to export its influence on the culture, economy, politics, and defense of other nations has been met with obstacles by an increasingly diligent international community. Despite this, the CCP leadership continued its hard stance, which surprised many with mumblings of “central misjudgment” even overheard within its own ranks.
However, if one understands what the ultimate goal of communism is as outlined in the books by the editorial team of the Nine Commentaries, the actions of the CCP should be of no surprise. The CCP is intent on exporting communist ideology and damaging all traditional values, morals, and culture, even if this means destroying mankind; this is their ultimate goal.
Many believe that it is now the struggle of two superpowers, China and the U.S. This statement, in fact, attempts to shift the focus or cause confusion because if the U.S. wanted to stop China’s ambitions, it would have it done before China’s reforms. The idea of a struggle between the U.S. and the CCP as superpowers is an ambiguous theory meant to hide the real purpose behind the conflict. The term “New Cold War” does not address the essence of the conflict, but simply points out the confrontation of ideologies.
Indeed, President Trump faces something similar to what Winston Churchill and all previous U.S. administrations faced during the height of the Cold War with the Soviet Union, which was not simply a fight against the communist bloc by Western civilization, but also the defense of our traditional values, morals, and culture (universal values) from communist influence.
Communist China is the new Soviet Union
There has been no firm conclusion about the collapse of the Soviet Union. Scholars on both sides believe in the theory of historical contingency. However, scholars in the former Soviet Union tend to focus on the restrictive nature of society and lack of freedoms as reasons for the collapse, while scholars in the West tend to attribute it to the economic cost of the Cold War.
This historical puzzle of the collapse of the Soviet Union probably needs to be resolved in the new book published by the editorial team of the Nine Commentaries. The Ultimate Goal of Communism notes that “the roadmap of the careful plotting of the evil communist specter to destroy humans” and sees China as the final destination of communism:
“When Chinese traditional cultures are all destroyed by the CCP, as a springboard, a test field, and a shield, the U.S.S.R. has ended its mission. A big communist camp collapsed, the Soviet Union left the historical stage and the skin of the communist leader was inherited by the CCP.”
The book concludes that the collapse of the Soviet Union was indeed historically inevitable and that the CCP is going to enter the international stage on behalf of the specter of communism to initiate a final battle. Hence, the “New Cold War” is not only an extension of the old, but also will herald the return of traditional values, morals, and culture in the fight against the CCP’s attempt to destroy mankind.
This battle is not only between China and the U.S., but also involves each country, community, home, and individual. As the book suggests:
“The darkest time is also when we are the closest to the brightness. God has its arrangement for history and the future. God is waiting for us to awaken and God’s promise is being realized.”
“Find the right way for the heart to purify society, return to traditions, rebuild our belief, re-establish our connection to God, and find our bond to God. It is the responsibility of each of us and it is also the hope for us to be rescued.”
