I am not over-reacting, for words to this effect have appeared in the mainstream press: The Australian, October 18, 2017, p. 11. There it is said that Xi Jinping is rapidly building China into a 21st century totalitarian state. It is noted that Chairman Mao’s 30 years, which killed millions, is not viewed with any guilt, but accepted as not inferior to the next 30 years of modernisation. In fact, Xi has taken Mao further building a society of complete IT surveillance. Yes, that is the nation which is set to build a city on our shores.
What is done in China will ultimately be mirrored in the world as China hopes to rise to global domination. Xi champions globalism, while not practicing it for China which is the most protectionist country in the world, comprised of state run enterprises.
