Xi has tapped into the power of communist ideology.
It has taken more than a year, but at last ordinary Australians are waking up to the China-backed agenda. First, the China-backed agenda that COVID is so scary it is worth destroying your country for it. Second, that COVID came about by accident.
The Chinese propaganda machine is beginning to unravel.
China’s eyes are on a lot more of the world than just Taiwan. Their influence into foreign governments, trade deals and diplomatic pressure can be seen on a global scale. They are pursuing a geopolitical agenda of domination through every avenue of physical transportation as well as a public relations war for hearts and minds in specific countries across the world.
A flurry of commentary and materials are being issued by various thinktanks and military specialist organisations in favour and support of Defence Minister Peter Dutton’s new tough stance on China.
China has tried to make out that the brutal communist regime is a victim and has not been committing genocide persecuting religious minorities.
While the Australian Government has done the right thing and axed the Chinese Belt and Road, including dangerous arrangements made by Victorian premier Daniel Andrews, another problem looms with New Zealand’s increasingly far left government exiting from its alliance with Australia, America, Canada and the UK to pursue a closer relationship with China.
Members of Parliament have given some real clarity on the issue of China. They have called out China for committing genocide against their own people. They have called out China for stealing Australian businesses’ intellectual property.

For some years China has been Australia’s largest trading partner. Australia has been a major beneficiary of China’s economic growth.
