Best of Lev: China demonstrating the will to dominate; West losing the will to resist

Lev Navrozov emigrated from the Soviet Union with his family in 1972. He so cherished the freedom of press he found here that he dedicated his remaining years to alerting otherwise-oblivious Americans to the global context of news.

From Moscow, the capital of the slave country founded in 1917, I came to New York, to the 21st floor of a skyscraper.

The owners of the slave country had created their radio and television and even their own art and philosophy — in short, they created a new culture, with inevitable shortcomings.

Pre-1917 Russian culture was based on the concept of genius. The West followed, recognizing Russian writers of genius such as Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, or Chekhov.

Post-1917 Russian culture was founded on the premise of confrontation. Before 1917, the communist hymn “The Internationale,” which had been created with the participation of Marx himself, was first secretly sung in Russia.

The message of the hymn could not be clearer: “Workers of the world, unite!” and declare war on “capitalists” by taking away their property. “Destroy the old world and build a new one, which will belong to you!” It was not a song, it was a declaration of war.

The message worked in Russia. Tsar Nicholas II and his family were killed, the old Russia with its unique culture was destroyed, and those who perpetrated those crimes grabbed power. Later, those “proletarian” factions led by Lenin, who originally seized power, came to fight each other, and Stalin became the ultimate dictator of the country.

China is another case in point. The old Kuomintang regime was wiped out and found its refuge on the island of Taiwan, where they established a flourishing democracy, while mainland China still aggressively pursues the ideas expressed in “The Internationale” — they established a ruthless dictatorship and turned the “proletariat” into obedient slaves.

The present-day Chinese dictators, with their 1.3 billion slaves, who could be readily turned into the world’s largest army, menace the West. Their “peaceful” efforts, which are masqueraded as benevolent trade relations, are actually veiled well-thought-out efforts to achieve unprecedented military superiority to take over the free world.

It looks like the free countries are taking the bait. Their greed to make ever more money by exploiting Chinese slave labor is limitless. Many Western businesses have actually relocated to China — just look at the new office spaces for their CEOs in multimillion-dollar skyscrapers from which they conduct their trade operations, all built with Chinese slave labor. And all these motives are more often than not being overlooked by Western human rights organizations.

A few days ago, while searching the Internet, this title caught my attention: “Report: Chinese tech firms involved in military collaboration” ( “The Chinese Liberation Army (PLA) is arming and developing soldiers with advanced information warfare capabilities, deemed a ‘genuine risk’ to the U.S. military operations when a conflict arises.” And “China [is] boosting information warfare capabilities, with help of academia and commercial IT sector, posing risk to Western government and firms.”

I was startled to find that “According to a report by contractor Northop Grumman for the U.S. government on the cyber threat posed by China … Beijing has come to believe that information warfare and computer network operations are an essential aspect of any military operation and are integrating them with traditional components through a framework called ‘information confrontation.’ ”

The report goes on to say that “The Chinese military is constantly evaluating U.S. command and control infrastructure and are likely to target these systems with electronic countermeasure weapons, network attack and exploitation tools in time of conflict. … China’s military also relies on academia and the commercial IT sector to boost R&D efforts.”

China’s continual involvement in state-sponsored hacking of computer systems in the United States is another case in point. According to the report, last year China was accused of a decade-long cyber espionage attack whereby hackers broke into ISP networks of hotels and used traveling employees to gain access to confidential corporate mails.

What will be the battle for the globe? The magic answer is, “The will to defeat the enemy no matter what.” It seems that China, created by the communist Mao, possesses that will, while the West does not.

Well, that is their choice. In a slave society such as China, slaves cannot choose between life and death.
