Our relationship with China is not a new cold war.
Unfortunately, China is a peer competitor with the United States who does not believe in individual liberty or several of the other principles enshrined in our Constitution. Consequently, China’s bad behavior – especially when it comes to their systematic industrial espionage and theft of intellectual property; repression of their minority Uighur population; backtracking on Hong Kong’s governance model; and “irresponsible behavior in cyberspace” – must cease.
The United States must learn how to COMPETE and COEXIST with China across the Diplomatic, Information, Military, and Economic (DIME) dimensions of power – and this starts by getting our Nation’s own socio-economic house in order.
On a macro-level, this means implementing policies which promote a strong economy – including reducing our dangerous levels of Federal debt.
On a micro-level, this campaign believes the best way to COEXIST and COMPETE with China starts with how we conduct our affairs as individuals here in the United States. Specifically:
- a) “Loving our neighbors” doesn’t mean “pie in the sky” acceptance or agreement with everything everyone does or says, but it DOES mean we have a moral obligation to treat each other with dignity and respect; and seek to understand WHY people may believe differently than we do.
- b) If we can’t find a way to have more constructive dialogue with our NEIGHBORS, our elected officials won’t find a way to cross the aisle to negotiate on critical policy issues which scream for action NOW – and the more China wins.
- a) We must think CRITICALLY about what we are seeing & being told in the corporate and social media. We must VERIFY claims from multiple sources before forwarding the “clickbait” or sensationalized story our favorite media source is peddling.
- b) The more emotional energy we spend worrying about stories involving “gender neutral Mr. Potato Heads” (which apparently is a thing…), critical race theory, and just about any other topic circulating in social and corporate media circles – the more China wins. *SIDE NOTE: Our Chinese and Russian adversaries LOVE the fact that we are so easily divided by THEIR misinformation campaigns.
- a) We must raise children in stable family environments. Schools and social services ARE important – but NO amount of government spending will EVER make up the difference in a child’s life if they are not given a fighting chance by being raised in a family that is able to support their physical and emotional needs.
- b) The more American children who are raised in brokenness and who lack the technical and interpersonal skills to compete in the global economy – the more China wins.
