China is the biggest threat to New Zealand’s national security. The spectre of its threat has entered into the mainstream discourse in past years, but we must not be complacent, and COVID-19 is one example of why.
The outbreak of COVID-19 shows that the CCP is not strong enough to counter the deficiencies in Chinese culture. The lies and slow response by the CCP to the outbreak show a level of negligence that should affect NZ’s relationship with China going forward.
The ‘socialist’ model has a zero per cent success rate, and China’s market socialism looks to combine the post-modernist, culture-destroying model of the left, and the exploitative and dignity-destroying model of contemporary liberalism. Hard-working New Zealanders were already the carrion for US vulture globalists and capitalists, and now the Chinese Hyenas.
China pushes globalisation because, by using free-trade and open economies, they are able to undermine a state. Once they’ve got their hooks into a country, they’ll take advantage of it for their own purpose. Sound familiar? The only way for New Zealand to really retain our identity and dignity is to ensure that New Zealand’s long-term interests come first. Not the short term-profit making interests of our capitalist class. Simply look at how badly having no Chinese exchange students has hurt our education institutions. Do they exist to educate Chinese or New Zealanders? Previously-vital institutions such as Education, like so many other facets of contemporary New Zealand life, now exist at the behest of liberal capitalism and all that it stimulates in the countries
To see even greater evidence of this strategy of China’s look at more vulnerable states. By bankrolling countries in the Pacific, they will soon be able to force deals to get their warships in striking distance of NZ. Poor Pacific Island countries have put commerce before their own people and allowed the gigantic Chinese behemoth to get a foot in the door of their small nations. In Vanuatu, China gifted a $28.5m conference centre that is too expensive for Vanuatu to run and pay back the debt on. New Zealand must resist this dependency on China lest we are forced into sacrificing our national security because our economy would crumble without the Chinese consumer.
Furthermore, how can we trust the thousands of Chinese migrants, tourists, or students, who come to our country each year? It is likely many of them are here to take
As we have seen with the lockdown, and as we have previously discussed, we don’t need to be constantly consuming cheap goods, nor do we need to be exporting our natural resources to developing countries that seek to overwhelm us
