The ongoing domestic pressures and resentment against the Communist Party are building as economic growth falls below what China needs to stop going backwards on quality of life.
That is leading the regime to lash out with ‘Wolf Warrior’ dimplacy to inspire Nationalistic fervour to quell that growing domestic resentment.
Australia and NZ are part of that target because our economic dependency on China gives them a free weapon to beat us with.
China are looking to find reasons to manufacture a grievance.
This gives an insight into how paranoid the regime has become and that their successes with soft power can just as quickly be replaced by hard power.
China’s need to whip up Nationalism and push Australia around and force them to acquiesce to Chinese dominance is a terrible miscalculation by Beijing who seem to think these tactics will work.
It will only dig Australian heels in deeper.
We must urgently see economic decoupling from China as a national security issue.
