The tale of a tail that wags the dog
Woof! Woof! How is your critical thinking? We want to consider how the totalitarian nationalist Chinese Communist Party's (CCP), an illegitimate dictator, uses China's monolithic power structure of a Chinese feudal plutocracy to influence the world in its pursuit of establishing itself as the Middle Kingdom. The 'dog' that we refer to is the CCP's political wing, and the tail is CCP's military wing - the Peoples Liberation Army (PLA).
1) Is CCP's ultimate decision maker the military or its political wing?
2) Who is the current key 'influencer' in China?
The answers to these questions have significant consequences for the critical questions of why, when, how, where and with what the democratic alliance should be doing to contain the global rot of CCP's autocratic "rule BY law".
CCP's Xi Jinping obviously likes to play the role of the Emperor, but as always in China, behind the scenes are individual(s) with varying degrees of influence. Though they may be without formal roles, it they who are ultimately calling the shots. For example, Deng Xiaoping after the 4 June 1989 Tiananmen massacre was without any formal CCP role, yet he was recognized as the leader - or at least we were led to believe he was.
Famous words spoken by Deng Xiaoping at the UN : Time for people to overthrow CCP!
The PLA is a corrupt business enterprise - it is not a military fighting force. PLA's role is NOT to defend the sovereignty of China - it is to defend the CCP. Inside China PLA does whatever it wants to do. It's a power unto itself!
WTPOHK suggests that most likely the real powerhouse within CCP is the military wing lead by its highest ranked General Xu Qiliang : Emperor Xi Jinping serves as a convenient CCP front man. We ought to remember, therefore, that diplomats and figureheads are not the real enemy. This is where some critical thinking is all the more important.
The 2019 paradigm shift that created COVID-19 is symbiotic for Earth and all onboard her. Now is the age of arms for jabs not war : The democratic alliance must operate inside the new paradigm to strengthen democracy, decouple from CCP and engage in what ever way it can with the people of China.
