Xi Jingping Is Consolidating Power As China Focuses Their Eyes On The Global Stage
The Chinese Communist Party made changes to the national constitution today paving the way for President Xi Jinping to increase his already formidable hold on the execution of Chinese domestic and foreign policy. His name has been officially entered into the constitution under a section called “Xi Jingping Thought.”
Other leaders have had their names similarly enshrined but never before has it been done so quickly into their tenure–in Xi’s case it has only been five years since he took the helm.
Meanwhile, Xi is attempting to move China away from the version of communism once espoused by the Russians of late. His program, which was also officially codified into the nation’s constitution, cites “socialism with Chinese characteristics.”
In terms of political culture, Chinese civilization may not enjoy the longest history of all ancient civilizations, but it has survived vicissitudes for thousands of years and still prospers – the epitome of Chinese people’s vitality and creation – as well as a reflection of the political culture in Chinese civilization.
China: Steeped In Tradition? More Like Revision
There’s a concerted effort of the Communist Party of China to not only sidestep the mistakes made by prior generations during the Cultural Revolution but also to embellish the continuity of tradition from the ancient emperors to today’s socialists. The fact remains that under the iron grip of Marxism, 1966 became a year of permanent shame for the Chinese people as their leadership under Mao systematically sought to destroy the ancient culture of China.
The destruction of tradition was seen as a cleansing of what China referred to as the “Four Olds.” The Four Olds were as follows: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas. If you consider what Cultural Marxists are doing in America then you might notice a few uncanny and disturbing similarities–certainly the destruction of our historical monuments is the clearest indication, but in a more subtle nature, the reshaping of social norms and gender identity are also a threat to the foundation of American political thought.
Coal In China: A Problem For American Manufacturing
Still, the relationship between China and Russia is growing stronger. Coal imports from Russia to China have increased 83 percent from just last year. But while this economic relationship sheds light on a tightening of Asian relations, it underscores an important problem face by the Western world that increasingly seeks to move away from fossil fuels towards so-called “clean energy.”
The only thing that Western nations are able to do under the Paris Accords is weaken their economic potential to compete with nations like China. That’s why Trump is choosing to not partake. While Australia itself is turning away from domestic use of coal, they have no problem with selling that coal to nations like China. Coal imports from the land down under increased 33.6 percent from last year.
Without a doubt, China is by no means a diminishing threat and now they have a leader that has solidified his position like no other in recent memory.
