China Complains About Rising Protectionism in the West

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:

Followers of The Corbett Report will no doubt be familiar with George Soros’ pronouncement on multiple occasions over the years that China is to be the engine of the New World Order. This is in keeping with similar pronouncements by Kissinger and Brzezinski and the other high-level super gophers of the CFR-connected foreign policy establishment that helped pave the way for the “opening up” of China (to the NWO oligarchs).

But after this week’s G20 Summit, China is signalling unhappiness with how this relationship is progressing. In an editorial in the wake of the summit in Hangzhou this week, Chinese state media Xinhua voices their concern about the growing protectionist threat to the globalist racket that has served the Chinese oligarchs well these past two decades.

“As the Hangzhou Summit pointed the direction and charted the future course for the sluggish world economy, G20 nations should make concerted efforts to implement their consensus in real earnest,” Xinhua lectures its audience (presumably the movers and shakers of the global architecture). And how does Xinhua think these world (mis)leaders should go about doing this? “For the world’s major developed economies, they should curb rising protectionism and dismantle anti-trade measures as economic isolationism is not a solution to sluggish growth.”

The refrain is familiar enough in the post-Brexit world: “hey you populists, stop raining on our globalist parade!” Now as I’ve noted at length in these very pages, the nationalist and isolationist tendencies that are being stirred up in polities across the western world are not themselves the solution to the global world order; they are in fact part of the collectivist dialectic that will ultimately further the globalists aims. But these tendencies are part of the natural reaction that many are feeling to the squeeze that is coming from the offshoring of their jobs in the world of “free” trade (i.e. crony capitalist trade presided over by thousand page and nearly incomprehensible agreements that are designed to eliminate small business competitors).

Is the “engine of the New World Order” stalling? Are these populist movements really threatening the emerging international order and China’s place in it?

If only.

In truth, this is much like Brzezinski’s recent (and much-touted) “abandonment” of the New World Order. If you go back and read Brzezinski’s actual article instead of the alt media headlines touting it, he’s not abandoning anything. He’s merely acknowledging that we are no longer in the unipolar world of the American hegemon that we were when he and his cronies started their quest to construct this new world order. Instead there will have to be accommodations made for emerging powers like China to have a greater role in maintaining order in the Middle East and other hotspots. Astute readers will note that the decrease of America’s prominence on the world stage and the rise of competing powers is in fact the fulfillment of the globalist’s objectives, not the abandonment of them.

In the case of this hand-wringing over isolationist and nationalist movements, too, we see some genuine angst on the part of the growing international bureaucracy that populate the institutions (EU, UN, WTO, etc.) governing this incarnation of the New World Order. But just like in Orwell’s 1984 it does not require one government to rule the world, but competing/conspiring regional (or even national) governments to maintain a type of balance in a multipolar world order.

So don’t worry about the globalists just yet. However, look for China’s oligarchs to start shifting more of their attention to their own neck of the woods (AIIB, South China Sea, One Belt One Road) and turning away from the old New World Order’s institutions (IMF, World Bank, UN) that seem like they’re going out of style.
