According to the Black Book of Communism, “an estimated 65 million Chinese died as a result of Mao Zedong's repeated attemps to create a new 'Socialist' China” during his Cultural Revolution from 1966 until 1976.
According to Wikipedia, President Richard Nixon's 1972 visit to the People's Republic of China “was an important strategic and diplomatic overture that marked the culmination of the Nixon administration's resumption of harmonious relations between the United States and mainland China after years of diplomatic isolation.”
I understood why Nixon opened relations with China.
But coming from a Communist country I know the way communist regimes operate and that they cannot be trusted. I thought this was a grave mistake that would bring terrible consequences to the U.S. in the future.
We now have a doozy.
A characteristic of the communist totalitarian regimes is that everything that occurrs inside their borders is initally held as a well-guarded State Secret.
The Coronavirus is a precise example.
Their unforgiveable silence provoked the recent worldwide pandemic. And they still don't accept responsibility for it. Probably they never will for as long as they remain a totalitarian communist regime.
What bothers me the most after the unfortunate Nixon decision is the ignorance in the U.S. business community to even entertain the possibility that those communist fanatic cult members would realize the advantages of the free market and eventually adopt a real open free enterprise system.
They never did and never will because of their rigid ideology and power hunger.
They pretended to transform for international comsumption. But continued with their inflexibility to real change, because their absolute control is required to maintain their absolute power.
The ones who benefited the most from the elite pretending to be capitalistic were the old Chinese ruling communist elite. It worked for them while the U.S. turned a blind eye and they pretended to be capitalistic, in cahoots with unscrupulous foreign businessmen interested only in profits rather than freedom for the oppressed Chinese people.
With working conditions and salaries of the workers there so much lower than workers in the U.S.,the Chinese communists lure foreign businessmen.
It was cheaper to produce in China than in America or other countries. That's why so much of our production moved there. And we stupidly became dependent on Communist China!
The communists never renounced being our enemies. They spied, copied and stole the West's inventions and innovations, also to our blind eyes.
Now, sadly, we are paying the price.
