Xi Jinping Admits: 'Global Consensus' Turning Against Globalism

Chinese dictator Xi Jinping admitted “great concern” in a speech on Thursday that popular sentiment around the world is turning against “economic globalism,” particularly in light of China’s use of its economic dominance to coerce foreign companies to adhere to communist ideology.

China observed 20 years as a member of the World Trade Organization this week, an era marked by Chinese manufacturing dominance and extreme working class devastation in the United States. China’s stranglehold on manufacturing has resulted in dozens of multinational companies becomingimplicated in the enslavement of millions of members of Muslims-majority Chinese ethnic groups, one of several atrocities committed against these groups that the U.S. government has declared a genocide.

Xi was speaking on Thursday at the China International Import Expo (CIIE), an event meant to foster reliance on Chinese trade in vulnerable nations. While Xi took some time to boast of China’s astronomical economic successes in the aftermath of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic – which gave the Communist Party an opportunity to flood the world with low-quality personal protective equipment (PPE) – he dedicated much of his remarks to the fact that many countries and their citizens were reconsidering the globalization of the economy as an unquestioned good.
