Greetings, friends! The border tensions between India and China are the worst they have been in several decades More than 20 Indian soldiers have lost their lives. Because of this, the sentiment of ” boycott China has started trending again in India To express this emotion, some people are even throwing their Chinese TVs out of their homes While some are breaking Chinese toys. “This is a Chinese product.”
I think if we want to make this Boycott china movement successful then it is not going to happen by breaking TVs and toys We need to understand the root causes first of how Chinese Communist Party wants to dominate the world and what dirty tactics they resort to for achieving this- Economically, Politically and Geographically Don’t harbor the misconception that only India is facing such problem.
The border intrusions that China is doing in India, China is doing a similar thing with Taiwan simultaneously, And what are the several tactics that China resorts to with other countries economically. China is not just a threat to India but poses a danger to all the democratic countries across the world When I say” China” here, I am only referring to the Communist Party of China. A party that has established its complete dictatorship over the people.
So the lesson is that the Indian government should keep its eyes open and remain alert and keep a tab of all the things that China is currently dumping in India to raise taxes on them accordingly and stay vigilant regarding these things A third tactic is currency manipulation China is accused of deliberating undervaluing its currency in comparison to the US dollar in order to maintain its cost advantage So that the cost-benefit of 30-40% is maintained whenever someone wishes to buy a made in China product The low value of the currency that it maintains would not remain so if viewed in the free market.
So this is another accusation that is leveled against China As a result of these reasons- the unfair trade practices, dumping, pilferage, and the currency manipulation done by China These are the reasons due to which Donald Trump had declared a trade war against China Donald Trump had hiked the import tariffs to prevent China from harvesting these benefits and the trade war would have caused both the countries to incur losses.
If we boycott China through reduced trade and increased tariffs then what would the consequences be?
Politically, the Chinese Communist Party is trying to exert its influence in the internal affairs of the other countries through nefarious means A great example of this is Australia China is trying to manipulate the people in the internal politics of Australia It has been alleged that China made several thousand Wechat accounts to defame and poke fun at the Australian Prime Minister And not only this, China is accused of building their spy networks in the Australian universities to spy on the Chinese students.
According to a news report of last year, a Chinese student was studying in the University of Queensland, Australia He participated in a protest against the Chinese government that was being held in Australia and the Chinese government reached his family home in China and pressurized the family to keep their son under control and threatened them with dire consequences.
This is how the Communist Party of China is threatening the parents of the students studying in Australia Australian Strategic Policy Institute released a report last week which revealed how China is employing covert and deceptive methods to infiltrate the foreign political parties and the multi national companies to topple the democratic systems all across the world I have only spoken about the Western countries and India until now but even the African have not been spared by China.
Taking advantage of the poverty of the African countries, China constructs highways, dams and large infrastructure projects at the expense of crores that is loaned out to them and China is well aware that these African countries would not be able to repay it back and when these countries are unable to repay their loans, China buys strategic locations in these countries It assimilates them by physically occupying them.
If there is an important port, China takes over it by sending its military and then puts it to its own use This is called “debt trap of African countries by China” Search and read up on it. A lot of material is available regarding it It destroys a country completely by trapping it in debt There are several examples of this Take the example of Zambia- a country in Africa A 2018 report revealed that the Zambian government was selling off the entire control of its National Electricity Company to China because it did not have money to repay China.
When the diseases like COVID 19 spread outside from their country no body knew anything about what they had done or whether all information had been disclosed or not There is no free media to report that So these are the ways in which the Chinese Communist Party is exerting its influence on the rest of the world You can see that saying “boycott China” and breaking TVs and toys would not have much of an impact China, here, is playing the game on the next level by trapping the countries in debt traps and by resorting to dumping.
These small steps will make no difference India would have to begin thinking on the next level to counter China The good news is that China is against all- Australia, Europe, USA, and even Africa So, if all of these countries come together and unite against China then there is some hope In the next video, I will do an analysis of how we should boycott Chinese products which would actually make an impact.
