Zombie America vs. China’s Zombie-Eaters 2020
Commentary: Eight reasons China’s ‘economic war’ is a secret defensive strategy
by Paul B. Farell
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — “Zombie Economics: How Dead Ideas Still Walk Among Us,” could easily have been entitled “Zombie Capitalism.” Why? The book is all about undead Reaganomics zombie-isms like “trickle-down” that nearly destroyed the American economy in 2008.
Now that same Zombie Capitalism is being resurrected by the Goldman Conspiracy of Wall Street Banksters and their new partner, the GOP Tea Party of No-No. Yes, folks, America’s self-destructive Zombie Capitalism has once again returned from the mausoleum of toxic undead ideas.
But this was so predictable. As Naomi Klein, author of “Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism,” warned: “Free-market ideology will come roaring back when the bailouts are done, and the massive debts the public is accumulating to bail out the speculators will then become part of a global budget crisis.”
Get it? The Zombie Capitalism of Reaganomics couldn’t kill us during the dot-com crash or subprime credit collapse, but now Zombie Wall Street is shooting for the “Third Meltdown of the 21st Century.”
Wait, an even better title would be, “Zombie America.” Why? America is not only enjoying Halloween, the great celebration of the undead, but in our election madness we also created a historic trick-or-treat, with invisible monster billionaire backers, ghoulish politicians and blood-sucking vampires emerging from graves in foreign sovereign nations to poison our souls from within.
But the scariest monsters this Halloween are the China Zombie Eaters who are devouring the dying jobs of Zombie Americans. China’s Zombie Eaters are infinitely more dangerous than all the spooky foreign nations funneling megabucks into the Chamber of Commerce’s Supreme Court-sanctioned lobby.
Here are 8 demonic reasons why China’s aggressive “economic warfare” is also a secret long-term defensive military strategy:
1. Zombie-eating China has a long-range plan to conquer America
Listen closely, because the nuttiest theories are so often revealed later as hidden truths. Remember Delaware Tea Party Senate candidate “I’m no witch” Christine O’Donnell. You may question her credibility about secret classified documents revealing that China has a “carefully thought out and strategic plan to take over America.”
But still, the facts are that the China Zombie Eaters are destroying and devouring millions of American jobs.
We also know China is stealing U.S. state secrets, stealing proprietary patents, stealing our technology. We know China is hacking away, aggressively engaged in a not-so-secret cyber war against America. We also know China has forged alliances with America’s enemies, including Iran, Venezuela and North Korea.
So while you’ll chuckle at a non-witch’s “classified” plans, the fact is China Zombie Eaters are our worst nightmare, aggressively engaged in wars against America on multiple fronts.
As Ross Terrill, a China expert at Harvard, put it in the Wilson Quarterly: “The Chinese Communists are very aware of this contest with the United States, though Americans (beyond the Pentagon) are not.”
Yes, Zombie America is clueless about the threat. And, Terrill warns, our lack of awareness will destroy us: “By being a shrinking violet, the United States would simply hand over the future to China.”
2. Zombie-eating China ‘buys’ Australia with surplus U.S. dollars
Want more proof? Read Malcolm Knox’s recent piece in Bloomberg-BusinessWeek: “The Deal is Simple. Australia Gets Money. China Gets Australia.” Wake up Americans. While our Zombie Politicians are fighting selfish turf wars this election cycle, China is using its foreign currency reserves (U.S. dollars) to buy rights to Australia’s commodities and natural resources, giving China Zombie Eaters long-term access to natural gas, minerals, iron ore and more.
A lot of those resources are found in Queensland, Australia, the home of John Quiggin, the economics professor who wrote the book “Zombie Economics.” Quiggin also summarizes the five main undead ideas of “Zombie Capitalism” in Foreign Policy magazine.
3. China Zombie Eaters easily bully Japan into submission
In a recent New York Times column Nobel Economist Paul Krugman warned: “Last month a Chinese trawler operating in Japanese-controlled waters collided with two vessels of Japan’s Coast Guard. Japan detained the trawler’s captain; China responded by cutting off Japan’s access to crucial raw materials.”
Bad news: Like a wounded tiger, China’s Zombie Eaters will turn against anyone. China controls 97% of “the world’s supply of rare earths, minerals that play an essential role in many high-technology products, including military equipment. Sure enough, Japan soon let the captain go.”
4. China Zombie Eaters are aware of Pentagon war strategies
That trawler incident got me thinking of the Pentagon study from Fortune back during the Bush/Cheney years: “By 2020 there is little doubt something drastic is happening.” The Pentagon warned that “as the planet’s carrying capacity shrinks, an ancient pattern of desperate, all-out wars over food, water, and energy supplies would emerge ... warfare is defining human life.” You can bet China’s generals have the same strategic playbook.
Krugman fears the Zombie Eaters long-range plans: “I don’t know about you, but I find this story deeply disturbing, both for what it says about China and what it says about us. On one side, the affair highlights the fecklessness of U.S. policy makers, who did nothing while an unreliable regime acquired a stranglehold on key materials. On the other side, the incident shows a Chinese government that is dangerously trigger-happy, willing to wage economic warfare on the slightest provocation.” Maybe even military action?
5. Zombie-eating China way ahead of Pentagon’s war planners
Krugman calls this “economic warfare.” But the Marine Corps veteran in me sees a long-range strategy of out-flanking a complacent Zombie America.
It’s well-known the China Zombie Eaters are making deals all over the world — in Africa, South America, Russia and Asia — tying up long-term natural resources, using their surplus credits of U.S. dollar reserves to lock up essential global commodity futures. Meanwhile America’s Zombie Politicians waste time in myopic election turf wars for personal gain, failing to see that America’s consumers and taxpayers are financing China’s war plans. Wake up. Admit it.
So to echo Krugman: I don’t know about you, but on so many fronts China’s behavior smells like their leaders are doing lots more than expanding China’s economy (the Foreign Policy Journal predicts China will explode from 11% to 40% of the global GDP by 2040, creating a $123 trillion economy that will dwarf America’s GDP).
But even more deeply disturbing, China’s behavior tells us they are obviously engaged in long-term defensive military strategies as well as economic planning, and that in the future, another trawler incident may well provoke dangerously trigger-happy Chinese leaders into escalating from defensive military strategies to a preemptive strike protecting China’s economic power.
6. Zombie-eating China aided by the Goldman Conspiracy vampires
The Wall Street Journal reports that Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein (obviously supported by the ghost of former CEO Hank Paulson who left the American Treasury buried in a graveyard of trillions of debt) “is trying to rehabilitate its public reputation with an ad campaign.” Yes, that undead Wall Street zombie will try “to show how it helps create jobs, is planning to make changes in the way it reports its finances and how it relates to clients, investors and analysts.”
Warning: Goldman’s no passive zombie. They’ll always be the textbook bloodsucking Wall Street vampire for all future Halloweens, what Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi called a “giant vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.”
That image forever defines Goldman as an enemy of America, especially now for using its conspiracy of anti-capitalists to aid and abet China Zombie Eaters in their economic war to bury America for all eternity.
7. Zombie AARP retirees vs. American under-40 taxpayers
Unfortunately the coming domestic class war will further drain America’s global power. Soon America will resemble France. Total chaos today. President Sarkozy’s under siege for raising the retirement age from 60 to 62.
French bankers are still getting rich, like Wall Street. But they control government, budget cuts, austerity. Result? Class wars: Students stormed the French Senate. Trade unions blocked airports. Oil refineries forced closure of 3,000 French gas stations. Cost: $100 million a day.
French voters are not zombies, they’re role models. Soon Zombie Americans will revolt, arising as the undead. France has 62 million, America’s five times bigger. Imagine an American class war when Zombie AARP’s 40 million members react after our Zombie Congress raises the Social Security retirement age (or cuts benefits, or raises taxes).
Bet on a nationwide revolution of young voters, unions, unemployed and poor, as in France.
8. Warning: Zombies can’t vote … but zombies will revolt!
Remember “The Night of the Living Dead?” Their time is on the horizon. In the full moon, cemeteries will empty of the undead. Revolting, they will fulfill their destiny. They will take back America from the eternally greedy Zombie Bankers and feckless Zombie Politicians.
Happy Halloween all you zombies, ghouls, vampires, witches and devilish monsters sucking the blood out of America’s soul … your time is coming soon, the end of your evil ways, when a new “night of the living dead” revives our great nation.
