CHINA is the Greatest “THREAT” to the Future Wellbeing and Standards of Living of “All” Western Nations and their respective People in the Long-term through their Global Economic Domination "MINDSET", not Military Power and where Economic Global Wars are in Perpetuity that will “Deliver” for the Chinese the most Extreme, Devastating and Subservient “Future” for ‘The West’ and ‘its People’ – Decision Time to “Act” Now Before it is Too Late to Defend ‘OUR’ Western Civilization and Way of Life, as Deterrents take “Decades to Put in Place”

There are two forms of GLOBAL WAR if it ever happened again.
 

1.     A MILITARY GLOBAL WAR where Nuclear Weapons would be the only way to win such a WAR and where that would annihilate all humankind over a period of time through direct nuclear detonation and the aftermath fallout if only a few thousand modern nuclear weapons were unleashed on the world 
 

  1. An ECONOMIC GLOBAL WAR where by stealth over time one economic bloc would dominate the economic world order and thereby control the future world dispatching all others to be submissive to be subservient to the dominant economic bloc
 

Both are deadly to humankind and where one would take a mere few years to wipe out humanity and where the other would preserve humankind, but where most of the world would be controlled for centuries in servitude as the equivalent of economic slaves, as the odds to use the first option of global military war would not be used because of the dire consequences.

Therefore if one side loses the economic war, they have lost everything in reality and freedom and independence over time, would be no more. Therefore it is vital to have a balance in power whether military or economic. Indeed, there is no difference in really, as one of the sides would definitely fight to win control over the other). But the big difference in the two global conflict mechanisms is that economic wars once one side has gained control, the controlling power bloc controls not just for a while, but for the centuries to come. Considering these facts it is of overriding and paramount concern for the West that the unfolding economic war is won or controlled by western countries, as the alternative would be dire for western people and as much a catastrophic situation over time as a nuclear war, that can never be waged if intelligence is used.

So the only ‘global war’ to be fought now is a global economic war and the Chinese have known this for over 4-decades now. Unfortunately western politicians have had their eye off the ball for those years and concentrated on military supremacy, ignoring the what they should have been doing over that time, the securement and wining of the future economic war.  Unfortunately western politicians still have their eye off the ball and still think that having the greatest military force in history, that they will always be supreme. But there they make the cardinal sin of ignorance, as the future world order will not be secured by ‘bombs and weapons’ (unless you want wiping out as well in the process), but by totalitarianism in controlling the future global economics. This is where successive western leaders have been totally lacking in their thinking, naïve to what is actually going on and allowed a economic titan like China to build the largest economy in the world in PPP terms,  in a mere 4-decades. But the sting in the tail as yet to come and where China has its eye on future  total dominance of all global economics when it comes to ultimate control.

Unfortunately because successive western leaders have been concentrating on military control and not economic control, time is simply running out for nations in the West to counteract the emerging economic (and now military as well to support and police its eventual control of global economics), as it takes several decades to develop, construct and execute on a global scale a project big enough to win the economic war that now clearly looms throughout the world-at-large. Therefore there is literally no time to waste and our politicians have to made to see the reality of what is actually unfolding. I cannot state these words strong enough if the West is to survive economically in the 1st century and beyond, as once one side has supremacy, it will be nearly impossible to overturn such immense economic power.

 

1. A MILITARY GLOBAL WAR where Nuclear Weapons would be the only way to win such a WAR and where that would annihilate all humankind over a period of time through direct nuclear detonation and the aftermath fallout if only a few thousand modern nuclear weapons were unleashed on the world 

The Second World War was supposed to be the war to end all wars, just like it was supposed to do with the end of WW1 in 1918. Indeed when Ike (Dwight D Eisenhower) just before launching Operation Overlord for the liberation of Europe from Nazi domination it was stated by the Allied nations that Overlord would,


“decide the destiny of man for centuries for the battle of Europe and the world”



But clearly they were not the wars to end all wars as post history of these two world wars have shown us.

Now though with the advent some 75 years ago of ‘The Bomb’ and thereafter the concept of MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) there will never be another major global war if anyone uses commonsense and if we ignore rightly and completely the concept based on theoretical thinking in places like the Pentagon that mankind in the form of the USA, could win such a war. The latter thinking is sheer madness and anyone with any commonsense should know. Indeed as of 2018[update] there are approximately 3,750 active nuclear warheads and 14,485 total nuclear warheads in the world according to "Status of World Nuclear Forces", Federation of American Scientists,  1 November 2018.

The Tzar Bomba is the largest nuclear weapon humanity has ever concocted and a real doomsday device where ‘only1 16,000 would make toast the whole planet.

But where also it is estimated that there are a total of 20,500 nuclear warheads in the world today and where if the average power of these devices was 33,500 Kilotons, there would be enough to destroy the earth’s total landmass." - https://gizmodo.com/how-many-nukes-would-it-take-to-blow-up-the-entire-plan-5899569

But where again the nuclear fallout from the atmosphere would kill off all humanity with a fraction of these numbers over a relatively short period in time and probably in the order of a mere 5,000 to 8,000 nuclear weapons being used against humanity and where this equates to approximately an area of 85 miles x 85 miles of atmospheric fallout per nuclear weapon to do its worst in annihilating humankind for ever and destroying all carbon life forms as we know them today. Indeed if there were by luck a few survivors, it would dispatch them to a life of where we were tens of thousands of years ago, but where also all future human offsprings for millennium, would suffer deformities inflicted by such a nuclear holocaust.

Only a madman therefore would set alight the chain reaction that would lead to humanity’s total demise. Indeed, even US presidents have been assassinated because of such a risk to humanity and due entirely to the possible outcome in unleashing Armageddon on the world as the final act of humans. In this respect, they could not take another chance.

THEREFORE A TRULY GLOBAL NUCLEAR WAR WILL NEVER HAPPEN IF COMMONSENSE IS USED BY ANYONE IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS, FOR ANY MADMAN WOULD BE ASSASSINATED BEFORE THEY COULD ISSUE THE FINAL ACTION.

 
Therefore having stated the above, this does not mean that smaller tactical weapons might not be used in anger and by mistake, but where again such an event would be stopped before all hell was let loose, due to the fact of MAD being implemented.

 
 

BUT THERE IS THOUGH A FAR GREATER WAR THAT WILL BE WAGED ON THE HORIZON FOR MANKIND AND THAT WAR IS THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC WAR TO DOMINATE THE WORLD ORDER OVER THE UNFOLDING CENTURIES

(A far more devastating war as it will go on in perpetuity and be never-ending)

 
 

In this respect there is an unperceived global war in its magnitude and where it is just as deadly a global war as previous world wars and even more so, that is now being played out today for the economic supremacy between the East and the West. For the side who losses this war of all wars (note not the war to stop all wars) will be just as devastating in human terms as a Nuclear war (although not the annihilation of humans, there will be deaths due to the subservient effect), as economic global wars are continuous without relent.

It takes decades to build such a balancing economic strategy and why it is taking until 2049 by the Chinese to implement their BRI that will dominate the world’s future economic development and thereby be the greatest threat to the future prosperity and wellbeing of all western nations’. This should be clear and where common-sense again dictates that if one side had a unequivocal overriding economic strength over another economic block, that latter will suffer unimaginable economic consequences. Presently the West has nothing of the vast economic magnitude of the BRI and therefore will eventual succumb and fail at the hands of such pre-eminent economic power. For it is simply the law of the economic jungle and the law that determines between the strong and the weak throughout the world and where there is no finer tool to implement such a strategy as controlling the technologies of the future, but where they need the world’s natural resources to drive that strategy.  This is what the Chinese BRI is all about – Economic CONTROL.

 So consequently the West has nothing like the equivalent of the BRI and to ignore this fact is sheer negligence of the very highest order on the part of all western politicians and their leaders. For it would be the ultimate act of negligence against their people who would suffer immensely without the mechanism to counteract this unprecedented economic power. But that is where we are presently heading as no western political leader is even possibly aware of the unparalleled economic threat that lies on the horizon for all western people with the ramifications and outfall that this unmatched economic behemoth threat from the BRI will bring to them. All they apparently see is perceive benefits that are in essence a smokescreen and where because western political leaders per se, are not tech literate and naïve to what technology can do in economic reality terms (they do not understand the in-depth fundamental forces that are in play and involved…they know that they work, but do not know really their pre-eminent importance) and therefore are totally blind to the threat that the BRI will bring in a mere few decades from now to all western nations.
 

Complacency of Western Politicians
It is called setting up your economic and business ‘stall’ in the long-term and simple terms where the Chinese are doing this in earnest and the West are just sitting back thinking that there are no threats near them and just like the United States did with the advent of Pearl Harbour. Indeed complacency is rife within all western politicians presently and true to form this will continue to be the case as well and as history has recorded for again our politicians are not equipped with the right knowledge base to know what is exactly going on. For they presently perceive that they are invincible like all predominant power bases of the past have thought in their naivety believed. As nothing is said by them about threats other than in their minds that of  military conflict, not that of the more corrosive conflict, economic wars that go on forever.

There are Two Distinct Future World Orders
The destiny of humanity and the West in particular can be viewed as two different future scenarios. These will decide whether the West will still be the free world by 2050 or not. Indeed, it is time that western politicians and leaders woke up and smelled the coffee before we have not the lead-time in the West to build our economic defences, for these take several decades to construct and just like again the Chinese are providing with their Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The big question is though, will our political leaders in the West open up their eyes and minds for once to this unprecedented threat on western economic living standards and the wellbeing of all western people?

 

1. The Chinese Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) only with no Global Economic Deterrent in the West

What is the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)?

1.1  The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a global development strategy adopted by the Chinese government involving infrastructure development and investments in 152 countries and international organizations in Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas. "Belt" refers to the overland routes for road and rail transportation, called "the Silk Road Economic Belt"; whereas "road" refers to the sea routes, or the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. - Wikipedia

1.2  The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is an immensely ambitious development campaign to boost trade and stimulate economic growth across Asia and beyond. – Chatham House, UK

The BRI is therefore a massive long-term economic strategy by the Chinese to bring together a significant number of countries into what can be viewed as an integrated China and that at its heart is their global ambitions to dominate world trade if people use their intelligence and common-sense. For one has to ask oneself, why would China invest up to a possible $12 trillion into such a scheme if it were not strategically significant for China’s ambitions, as no country is a philanthropist in giving to others. Therefore the whole purpose of the BRI is to dominate world trade from 2049 onwards and where the West have no answers to this unprecedented economic power presently, only military power and where this for the reasons stated previously, will be impotent against such an enormous Chinese economic vehicle for global domination in trade and that will provide no redress to this unparalleled power – not even in the history of the USA has anything like this ever happened before and Silicone Valley will be seen in comparison as a mere historical ‘storm in a teacup’ in comparison to the vast power global change dynamics of the BRI.

But again our western politicians are totally ignorant of these facts and how it will change the world order in economics terms. Indeed it will have the effect to provide unimaginable and unprecedented wealth for China and Asia but where on the other side of the coin created an environment in the West of a continual downward spiral in the living standards and wellbeing of all western nations, as the BRI on behalf of the China, For as we all know or should know, there are always winners and losers in this world and where China would not be investing up to $12 trillion in the BRI for control of the world markets of tomorrow,  if they were not coming out the winners.

In this respect you will have noticed over the past 4-decades that China has not been involved in a single military conflict, but where they have unlike the West been silently to a great degree, building their economic power and the global strategy that they adopted some 40 years ago. This has been at total odds with the West which has been embroiled with war after war and where this has drained vast financial and economic recourses from all western nations that they could have used in developing further their economies and making a better life for their respective people.

Indeed, some macroeconomists have determined that over the last 25 years alone western military intervention have cost between $12 trillion and $20 trillion (the latter approximately being 25% of all total global GDP).

To give a flavour of what is to come in terms of dire ramifications for us in the West, the following gives an indication observed by macro observers and experts.

In this respect the following are extracts from an article by Rick Mills of Ahead of the Herd and entitled, The Beginning of the End of the Dollar”

(For the full article use the following weblink 

  

One Belt, One Road

Promising over a trillion dollars in infrastructure spending in 60 countries, including a 260-mile railway spanning eight countries, power plants in Pakistan, and a Chinese-owned port in Greece to give it an artery for goods flowing to Europe, One Belt, One Road is China's "great pivot east." As the Independent described it in 2017:

It is global commerce on China's terms. Xi is aiming to use China's wealth and industrial know-how to create a new kind of globalisation that will dispense with the rules of the ageing Western-dominated institutions. The goal is to refashion the global economic order, drawing countries and companies more tightly into China's orbit.

The projects inherently serve China's economic interests. With growth slowing at home, China is producing more steel, cement and machinery than the country needs. So Xi is looking to the rest of the world, particularly developing countries, to keep its economic engine going.

In other words, One Belt, One Road is the means for creating a trading block that can function independent of its traditional Western trading partners.

The "Belt" refers to a network of overland road and rail routes and oil and natural gas pipelines planned to run along the major Eurasian land bridges—China-Mongolia-Russia, China-Central and West Asia, China-Indochina Peninsula, China-Pakistan, Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar. They'll stretch from Xi'an in central China through Central Asia reaching as far as Moscow, Rotterdam and Venice.

The "Road" is a network of ports and other coastal infrastructure projects from South and Southeast Asia to East Africa and the northern Mediterranean Sea.

"A network of new "South-South" trading routes connecting Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America are set to revolutionize the global economy. Trade and capital flows between emerging areas of the world could increase tenfold in the next forty years. In the same way that trade between the developed nations exploded in the 1950s and 1960s, we expect the 21st Century to see turbocharged trade growth between the emerging nations." HSBC Global Research

"In all trade corridors in which China participates, strong growth is anticipated. So strong in fact that it is no exaggeration to highlight this as the emergence of a new world trade order; by 2030, China will effectively be fulfilling the central trade role occupied by the U.S. and the EU today." The Super-Cycle Report, Standard Chartered Research 2010

The China Global Investment Tracker is a comprehensive data set covering China's well over $1 trillion in energy, mining, real estate and high-tech global investment and construction activity.

An article published by the New York Times, 'The World According to China,' by Gregor Aisch, Josh Keller and K.K.Rebecca Lai says China has displaced the United States and Europe as the leading financial power in large parts of the developing world. Here's where China has the most influence, based on its share of foreign investment since 2005.


Where Chinese companies once struggled to win orders in a competitive global market, that is starting to change, thanks to, ironically, the Chinese countervailing duties, which are making locally made goods cheaper than their American-made counterparts. When Chinese citizens buy Chinese goods, the government is happy—the opposite of what Trump intended by his tariffs.

The miscalculation is laid thread-bare in an interesting recent article:
In real life, Trump's tariffs are unlikely to inflict enough pain on China to compel Xi to make concessions. Its huge domestic market is becoming more important to Chinese growth. But beyond even that, Beijing's entire economic strategy is designed to replace critical foreign technology and products with homegrown alternatives it can control. Simply, the Communist Party prefers Chinese to buy Xiaomi phones and Geely cars, not iPhones and Buicks.

That's exactly what the much-feared "Made in China 2025" program is all about. The plan is to develop new, high-tech industries to compete with and eventually replace foreign rivals, at home and abroad. In that sense, it's official policy to limit overseas involvement in the economy.
The trade war, therefore, comes as a "blessing in disguise," as the China Daily put it. Trump's trade sanctions have given Beijing another excuse to drag its feet on free-market reforms, to support local companies and to harass and exclude foreign business—all things Chinese leaders are inclined to do anyway. - Bloomberg

One can see this in "The Made in China 2025 Technical Roadmap," better known as "The Green Book" after its original cover. The book is full of ambitious targets "that if met would virtually lock foreign companies out of many industrial segments in China and threaten market disruption for businesses across the globe," another article states:

The Green Book breaks down targets for dozens of industries that supply the 10 key sectors prioritized by Made in China 2025, which also include biotechnology, advanced rail equipment, and agricultural machinery. It sees Chinese companies taking a 56 percent share of the global market and 80 percent of the domestic market for integrated circuits by 2030. By 2025, they're seen controlling 90 percent of the domestic market for new-energy vehicles including hybrid and pure electric cars, domestic mobile communication equipment, key parts of industrial robots, new energy, renewable energy equipment and energy storage equipment.

In part because of the targets, foreign companies in industries including medical devices and advanced agricultural equipment—both priority industries in the Made in China 2025 plan—may already be losing business, says the U.S.-China Business Council. - Bloomberg

See below for a table of which industries are targeted.

Other determinants of China’s threat to the West is that the world’s future global currency will not be the US dollar. For after many years since 2006, China has with Russia been developing a new world currency in the Yuan and where the head of the PBC stated this clearly.

"In the process of in,ternationalization of the yuan we have taken sufficient measures that from now on will allow the yuan to be used in trade and investment. Moreover, the yuan has been included in the SDR currency basket. The key procedures have already been carried out… As for the future role of the government or the Central Bank in the internationalization of the yuan, to my mind, it is still possible to do something to establish communication between domestic and international capital markets," - Zhou Xiaochuan, Governor of the People's Bank of China stated at a press conference in September 2018
  

Writing on the Wall
Therefore the writing is on the wall, but western politicians are not devising or even considering developing a mechanism to counteract thus vast change of economic power to China, but where the ramifications for western people will be absolutely  horrendous  as China takes over the world trade order with the inevitable decline in the wellbeing of people in the West that will take its toll including famine and  loss of freedoms never seen before, not even in British feudal times. But of course the rich and powerful with their politicians who have created this unimaginable outcome for their people, will have created unprecedented human suffering that will be indefinite  due to the war being economic in nature not global military war and where the unthinkable case of MAD would most likely be unleashed. Therefore the West has no option if it is sane but to create a vast economic deterrent to counteract and protect its people with when viewing what is on the future horizon of time and before it is all far too late to do anything about this clearly emerging Chinese subjugation paradigm.
 
Again our political leaders in the West are blind to what is really going on here, as nothing whatsoever in any meaningful way is being undertaken to counterbalance and exceed this threat against all that western people hold so dear.

If they were, something remarkable would have been jointly proposed, but nothing.

 That is why the only solution is to create the vast ORE-STEM complex with its global research satellites in every western nation and those who wish to be a part of this world changing strategy. Indeed it is the only real intelligent answer. But again no-one is listening and especially our political leaders in the West. But eventually they will reap through this sheer neglect and complacency, a nightmarish life for all western people in the future (but except of course as usual, the rich and powerful in the West who through their complacency and ignorance will have brought about this horrifying future state of affairs).

  
 

    2. An ECONOMIC GLOBAL WAR where by stealth over time one economic bloc would dominate the economic world order and thereby control the future world dispatching all others to be submissive to be subservient to the dominant economic bloc
    The West’s ORE-STEM Initiative (to counteract the BRI in the West) 
    Image result for "ORE-STEM"

The ORE-Stem Complex and its global ORE Incubator Centres (innovation research satellites) is where the West comes together to develop the future world and t counteract the Chinese threat which is real. Its specific purpose is to make the west the dominate global player in the economic stakes and to counteract the immense emerging economic power of China and where the west is not dictated too after 2049 by their unprecedented economic model.  For this is a war of survival like no other in all reality.

As the full operational details are complex, but where they have been thought out by many leading  minds in science, technology, engineering, economics and mathematical application (STEEMA) where up to 100 member Nobel laureates were consulted, it is appropriate for confidentiality reasons and the definite unparallel Chinese socio- economic threat, to just state the following.

 The ORE-STEM brings together,

2.1    All the creative and innovative thoughts of the people in the West that would be on a continuous time cycle and also all those from other nations who want to be a part of this new global world development mechanism that protects humankind and does not allow all the economic power to be in the hands of China in this century and beyond.
2.2    All western scientists, technologists, engineers, economists and mathematicians.
2.3    All western universities and research institutions
2.4    All western corporations and businesses
2.5    All western investors.
2.6    All western politicians
2.7  The most important part that makes all this possible, but where China can never know what this is for obvious reasons, as otherwise they could use this 7th and unparalleled vital economic change-master for their own economic domination purposes and that can literally never happen, as all would be totally lost.

By doing this we concentrate our economic fire power like never before in the West and where it is so powerful that no economic bloc can equal or surpass it. For overall, it is the only alternative available that is capable of overcoming the immense Chinese threat and thereby securing in perpetuity the wellbeing of all western people. For without this dominant counteracting and huge STEEMA development in the West, we shall certainly fall under the immense power of China and where that is becoming far more clearer by the day.

 
The ‘Final Word’, as nothing will happen unless the following happens and where this will basically decide whether the people in the West have a meaningful future or not in this century and beyond
 

Wake up ‘western politicians’ as 2049 will soon be with us. For time is literally running out for western people and to prevent the worst future scenario that many cannot currently imagine.
