Before the 20th century, the history of the world was taught in the West as a single global story.
The key concepts in Western studies of history were “developed” and “underdeveloped” countries. The West was mostly developed, and the world outside the West mostly underdeveloped. The developed countries, where slavery was only a historic memory, relied on paid makers and operators of machines such as weapons.
True, Stalin and Hitler created societies based on both slavery and technology. But Hitler was defeated in Stalin’s Russia after he had invaded it, while Russia dropped its slogan of attaining world communism and finally even retreated and gave independence to some Western countries it had conquered.
And here, noticed by the West about 10 years ago, is a new China, combining state slavery with the development of the latest modern global weapons. In contrast to Stalin’s Russia and Hitler’s Germany, China’s population exceeds that of the U.S. by 1 billion people. Has the “People’s Republic of China” been seeking to become the “People’s Republic of the World”?
The Western history of the modern world needs to be revised. The free West has been oblivious to the existence of new China, in which state slavery is rampant and 1 billion people are being exploited and which does not conceal its military goal to achieve global domination and therefore should no longer be ignored by the civilized world.
The existence of state slavery in today’s China has to be admitted and made part of modern history books.
Even before Obama became President, he had shown his sympathies for what Mao named “People’s Republic of China,” the worst enemy of the free West.
The American electoral majority, ignorant of Obama’s left-wing, Marxist-Maoist ideology, and his sympathies for PRC, voted for him to be its leader. Would Obama have been elected if American voters were better educated and better informed about the aggressive nature of the PRC?
As for the election of the British prime minister, Yahoo! search results yield only one hit: “British Prime Ministers have never been elected directly by the public.”
Britain believes that the British prime minister must be that unique mind that understands the contemporary world politics. Some Americans believe that if a majority of the Americans want Obama to be the U.S. president, so be it!
About 10 years ago the West genuinely believed that the world is moving to general peace. Today no one can tell where the world is or whether it is moving to become the “People’s Republic of the World.”
A new global history is necessary, which will provide thorough analysis of political regimes in countries like China, in which state slavery and modern technology go hand in hand, making them far more effective than was Stalin’s Russia or Hitler’s Germany.
Slavery was discarded by developed countries. Before the beginning of the 20th century, China did not exist strategically in the “developed” West. Few had heard even its new name, “PRC,” which had officially been introduced by Mao in 1949.
By now, the rulers of Russia have been scared to death by China’s growing military might and are flirting with their terrifying neighbor out of fear. The fact that China has 1 billion more people than the United States should not be overlooked. How can Russia and the United States resist PRC and its “Liberation Army” when the latter includes this extra 1 billion people?
After the year 2000, China became a source of alarming news.
A certain stratum of the Western population, not indifferent to what is going on in the world, has been duly alarmed by this situation, unprecedented since the time of the rise of “National Socialist Germany” before its collapse in Stalin’s Russia. But the rest of the population goes on watching the stock market and entertainment news as before.
It is for the first time that the contemporary democratic West has had a chance to see how precarious the life of free countries is.
For years, Stalin and Hitler had been amassing their power quite visibly before they showed its military possibilities. And here, quite suddenly, China, whose new name given it by Mao in 1949 was hardly known, came to the fore as a deadly threat to the very existence of the free world.
Obama has proved to be a good ambassador for the PRC by advocating mutual friendship and closer cooperation between the two countries, while ignoring China’s brazen violation of basic human rights of its own people and its military aggressiveness and disregard for international laws.
