Why did the Rockefellers want to open up China trade with the West those many years ago? Why not, say, populous India instead? After all, India had some budding semblance of a representative government. Contrasted against China, India was Thomas Paine. The Rockefellers favored China because they LIKED China's system. Massive top-down control. Absolute censorship. Violent repression. Mind control. Thus, a way to own and direct huge numbers of people and pacify them through fear and terror. Decade after decade. A GOOD MODEL FOR THE WORLD.
An American friend described an incident he witnessed years ago when he was sitting on a tour bus in China. He and his buddy were the only Americans on board. An argument broke out between two Chinese tour guides at the front of the bus. At that moment, all the Chinese passengers bowed their heads and stared at the floor. This was their reflex reaction to a dispute between two low-level officials.
So you can imagine their responses to leadership at the top. Total submission.
These are the NBA fans who have a love affair with US players. And vice versa.
Orwell, 1984: "But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother."
Orwell: "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever."
Or perhaps a shoe, manufactured by Nike, in China.
Suppose MANY customers of Nike stop buying their shoes.
Suppose MANY NBA fans stop going to the games.
Suppose MANY viewers stop watching the games on TV.
Suppose MANY more social media users relentlessly spread messages supporting the Hong Kong protesters and exposing the brutal Chinese regime.
Suppose independent researchers begin publishing lists of products made in China and bought in the US, so consumers can avoid them.
Suppose many more people wake up to the fact that the economic glue that holds Globalism together is insane -- domestic manufacturers abandon their home country and set up shop in places (like China) where they make their products far more cheaply; where wages are very low and environmental concerns are nil; and then, export those products for sale back home, thereby putting competing domestic companies out of business. Suppose many more people come to see this as economic suicide.
Suppose they see Globalism itself as planned suicide. Planned to raise up certain countries ruled by brutal dictators, and sink other countries where some semblance of freedom still exists. And suppose they see this plan as a strategy for bringing about planet-wide repression under any label you care to use, but turns out to be Rule by Giant Corporations and Banks Colluding with Governments over All of Earth. No exceptions permitted.
And suppose the 7.7 billion targets of this plan realize they're all the real Deplorables, and consequently say NO.
With the many avenues of communication available to us, that could be a tidal wave of NO.
