The Chinese Are Coming! By Anil Shrivastava ‘Musafir’

July 20 China corona

Years from now the story will be told how a Chinese eating his bat soup destroyed the economy of the Western civilization without firing a shot. The Chinese have made everyone a prisoner as all of us are under house arrest. Now, everyone is Europe and America is just washing hands and looking out the window to watch the grass grow. Nail salons, hair salons and barber shops are closed turning men and women into Gorillas. It’s getting ugly out here.

They just didn’t stop there. The Chinese closed our schools and institutions of higher learning making us morons. They closed our businesses, supply chains and factories making us unemployed. The farmers and slaughter houses are closing shops which will create food shortages and starvation very soon.

If this is not a new world order engineered by China then what is it? It was done very smartly. Did you ever think that how come the Coronavirus did not spread to other parts of China, especially in their big cities like Shanghai and Beijing while It spread in all parts in every other country?

China is already planning to use the downturn in Western economies to its benefit. They intend to seek out more foreign direct investment, seize market share in critical industries and influence Europe to be in their orbit abandoning the United States. I don’t think that the obsequious Europeans will resist that temptation.

China knows that the Western companies will come back to China, the biggest consumer market in the world. The big corporations do not believe in nationalism. “There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today.” (Arthur Jensen in the 1976 film Network).

While America is standing still and China is normalized according to their well-executed plan, Chinese companies are expanding in the areas of 5G and Artificial Intelligence as well. Huawei, a Chinese company has already established its footprint in Europe despite America’s objections. Soon the Chinese will know what the other world leaders are planning and will have the capability to abort any American move against them.

Chinese workers are returning to factories while the USA and Europe are shutting down. The Chinese has a plan for tomorrow while we are running amok like a chicken with head cut off. The situation can get worse as many lawmakers are talking about removing tariffs on Chinese imports. The president of the Steel Union is echoing their voices. The UAW is resisting General Motor’s move to open factories in mid-May because they are getting paid while sitting home.

The purpose of this article is not to spread pessimism. We must be aware of the problem so that we can tackle them intelligently. We must open up our economy by maintaining proper safety protocol as soon as possible.

  1. I was reading this article and thought: my god, this is gripping plot for an incredible political thriller (either a novel or a movie). Am I too naive to want to believe that the cause for this horrible pandemic was of a more pedestrian nature?…


  2. Hi Irene!

    Thanks for your interest and encouragement. You gave me a great idea for a novel. Alas! I were that talented.

    There are many conspiracy theories, one that I presented another is that China produced the virus in a lab and purposely spread that to other countries. We all know that when the virus was in a nascent stage, they stopped all the incoming flights to China, but continued the outbound flights. They are rogues. Thanks for your attention!
