|The most populous nation state in the world|
Not to be confused with the much smaller Republic of China (i.e Taiwan).
China is the world's most populous nation state. Up to 2020 it was a major supplier of material goods to much of the rest of the world, particularly North America and Europe. The COVID-19 panic has caused uncertainty about its continuing to do so.

It is the world's most populous country, with a population exceeding 1.4 billion, slightly ahead of India. China spans the equivalent of five time zones and borders fourteen countries by land, the most of any country in the world, tied with Russia. With an area of approximately 9.6 million square kilometres (3,700,000 sq mi), it is the world's third largest country by total land area. The country consists of 22 provinces, five autonomous regions, four municipalities, and two special administrative regions (Hong Kong and Macau). The national capital is Beijing, and the most populous city and largest financial center is Shanghai. It has an enormous amount of natural reserves and was the focus of a lot of trade agreements with Asian and European countries in the 1900s. China invented several vital pieces of modern day inventions, from gunpowder and paper to the compass.
Most notably, it gained its role as great power threatening the US when it won the Pacific theater of WW2 by defending from a false flag from Japan - known as the Marco Polo incident - which followed up a civil war between communists and capitalism supported by foreign elements. As the communist Chinese faction won, the other side fled to Taiwan and lost its role in the UN/SC.
|Can China still become the world’s largest economy? - DW Business Beyond|
The economic growth of China, under the leadership of Hu Jintao, increased strongly in the 2000s, which continued under the administration of Xi Jinping. At the end of 2022, it's economy became an immediate focus for the SDS-elements shaping the 2020s. China's economic growth fell to its second-lowest level in at least four decades last year under pressure from COVID-19 stimulated real estate slumps. It recovered after restrictions that kept millions of people at home and sparked protests were lifted in 2022. China's economy grew by ~3% in 2022, less than half of the previous year's 8.1% rate, according to Weibo and Xinhua, the second-lowest annual rate since at least the 1970s after 2020, when growth fell to 2.4% at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

On March 29, 2017, The Chinese government banned 'abnormal' beards or veils in its heavily Muslim region of Xinjiang, stating that the rules were necessary to necessary to fight "extremism". The Daily Mail also stated that everyone would be forced to watch or listen to state media, and that all cars in the province be fitted with a GPS tracking device.

The Strike Hard Campaign is a research project into repressive social control run in Xinjiang. In 2018 the BBC accused China of "locking up hundreds of thousands of Muslims without trial in its western region of Xinjiang", and reported that the Chinese government denies the claims, saying people willingly attend special “vocational schools” which combat “terrorism and religious extremism”.

CNN reports that China spends millions of dollars on software to enable internet censorship, and that it began controlling its citizens' Internet access in the mid-1990s. China reportedly has "around two million people policing public opinion online" In 2015, CNN suggested that about 1 to 3% of Chinese Internet users regularly jump the Firewall to browse the open Internet. Microsoft has produced software which censors particular topics such as the Tianenman Square Massacre. Wikipedia is reportedly blocked in some parts of China.
Persecution of Falun Gong

On 20 July, 1999, around 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners gathered near the central government compound in Beijing to request legal recognition and protection by the Chinese government. The government's response was to declare the religion illegal, and carry out a mass arrests of the 'leaders'. A 2008 UN report suggested that tens of thousands of Falun gong members had been the victims of organ harvesting. As of 2019, illegal detention, torture, murder and organ harvesting of Falun Gong adherents was still ongoing. A tribunal chaired by Geoffrey Nice in London suggested a conservative estimate is that 60,000-90,000 transplant operations were conducted each year.

- Full article: US-China trade war
Although the Cold War 2.0 concept was originally formulated with Russia in mind, China has emerged as a focus of the US Deep State. Controlled media focused on China's rapidly structural influence in technology, even being responsible with their state companies such as Huawei for securing European governments their vital ministerial departments.
As a result of the shutdown of many parts of the global supply chain in the late 2010s, Taiwan came under scrutiny for being the de facto sole supplier of computer chips (or semiconductors specifically) for a wide variety of products.
Shortages for every product requiring computer chips, tariffs by the US & EU and increased tensions surrounding Taiwan and Hong Kong, caused prices for computer chips and similar components to skyrocket in 2020, making the world extremely dependent on a rapid recovery of the Chinese (or Asian) economy.
The Chinese government has been pursuing policies consonant with those of the supranational deep state, although several incidents in 2023 such as that of a few spy balloons show it's increasingly spying on North American countries as well.
“The US believes a suspected Chinese surveillance balloon that was shot down over its territory is part of a wider fleet that has spanned five continents.
"The United States was not the only target of this broader programme," Secretary of State Antony Blinken said. He added that the US had shared information gathered from the balloon debris with dozens of other countries. China has denied the balloon was being used for spying purposes, and says it was a weather device blown astray. US officials have described the balloon as being about 200 ft (60m) tall, with the payload portion comparable in size to regional airliners and weighing hundreds - or potentially thousands - of pounds. Its presence in US airspace set off a diplomatic crisis and prompted Secretary Blinken to immediately call off a trip to China - the first such high level US-China meeting there in years. It was later shot down by a US fighter jet off the eastern coast.
Citing unnamed officials, the Washington Post reported that the US believes the suspected surveillance balloon project was being operated from China's coastal Hainan province and targeted countries including Japan, India, Vietnam, Taiwan and the Philippines.”
BBC (2023) 
In September 2023, Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stated that the shot-down balloon wasn't spying. "The intelligence community, their assessment – and it's a high-confidence assessment – [is] that there was no intelligence collection by that balloon," he said, and presumably was a regular weather balloon blown off-track.
|The Nixon Seminar - Peter Thiel on Cryptocurrency|
China was once the world’s biggest cryptocurrency centre, accounting for ~70% of the total hash rate — or processing power — of the bitcoin network. China banned crypto in 2021, or more precise the power-intensive process that leads to the creation of new digital currency. That resulted in several miners fleeing to other countries, including the U.S. and Kazakhstan, which borders China. Chinese millionaires quickly set up D.U.M.B-bases to mine crypto secretly.

A Quote by China
|2021||“In a blunt opening statement before the talks in private, Mr Anthony Blinken said the US would "discuss our deep concerns with actions by China, including in Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan, cyber attacks on the United States, economic coercion of our allies". "Each of these actions threaten the rules-based order that maintains global stability," he said. In response, Mr Yang Jiechi accused Washington of using its military might and financial supremacy to suppress other countries. "It abuses so-called notions of national security to obstruct normal trade exchanges, and incite some countries to attack China," he added. Mr Yang said human rights in the US were at a low point, with black Americans being "slaughtered".”||March 2021||BBC|
|"Racism"||“Chinese authorities, bolstered by technology, arbitrarily and indefinitely detaining Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang en masse for actions and behavior that are not crimes under Chinese law. And yet Chinese authorities continue to make wildly inaccurate claims that their “sophisticated” systems are keeping Xinjiang safe by “targeting” terrorists “with precision.””||1 May 2019|
|"Strike Hard Campaign"||“The Strike Hard Campaign has shown complete disregard for the rights of Turkic Muslims to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. In Xinjiang, authorities have created a system that considers individuals suspicious based on broad and dubious criteria, and then generates lists of people to be evaluated by officials for detention. Official documents state that individuals “who ought to be taken, should be taken,” suggesting the goal is to maximize the number of people they find “untrustworthy” in detention. Such people are then subjected to police interrogation without basic procedural protections. They have no right to legal counsel, and some are subjected to torture and mistreatment, for which they have no effective redress, as we have documented in our September 2018 report. The result is Chinese authorities, bolstered by technology, arbitrarily and indefinitely detaining Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang en masse for actions and behavior that are not crimes under Chinese law.”||1 May 2019|

|COVID-19/Zero Covid||“Nearly three years into the pandemic, China is sticking with a strict COVID-19 containment policy that has caused mounting economic damage and widespread frustration, while keeping its borders shut for most international travel.
China has yet to describe when or how it will begin to exit from an approach that it calls "dynamic zero". China says it recognises domestic outbreaks are inevitable, and its policies are not geared towards having zero cases at all times but instead, are about "dynamically" taking action when cases surface. Dynamic-zero is two-pronged - prevention and containment. This year has seen the intensification of both aspects as the highly transmissible Omicron variant spread across China. Prevention focuses on early detection through regular PCR tests, especially in cities, where a recent negative result can be a requirement to enter a business or public facility. Potential or suspected cases are isolated at home or placed under quarantine at a government-supervised facility.
Those deemed close contacts of infected people must quarantine, and even distant or potential contact can result in an order to stay home. Control tactics, aimed at swiftly cutting off transmission chains to forestall outbreaks, involve quarantining cases at government-supervised facilities and locking down buildings, communities or even entire cities. Since March 2020, China's borders have remained shut to most visitors. Arrivals of all nationalities are subject to seven days of quarantine at a facility and three days of home isolation.
Each person's PCR test result is electronically logged on government databases, as well as one's travel history, which is tracked by mobile phone signals. People must keep a "normal" COVID profile with continual negative test results, no contact with infected people and no visits to risky places. Profiles are maintained on mobile phone "health kits". An abnormal profile bars access to public venues and mass transit, and can even require home quarantine for days with electronic seals attached to doors to enforce isolation. Profiles can without warning turn abnormal - indicated by a change in colour or the dreaded appearance of a pop-up window - if one was at a mall visited by an infected person or if one was a contact of a close contact. Sometimes profiles become abnormal even if all the requirements are met. Visits to other cities or provinces may require quarantine on arrival.
Lockdowns, which can be at the building level or much wider, can be sudden. A single case can trigger the lockdown of a building or residential compound, which means people cannot leave. Some lockdowns have lasted for months. Entire cities can be locked down with only hours of notice. Big cities that have been shut, sometimes more than once, include Shanghai, Xian, Chengdu, Tianjin, Shenzhen and even entire provinces and regions such as Xinjiang, Tibet and Jilin.
China argues that its policy saves lives. The authorities acknowledge Omicron is far less likely to cause serious health issues but say its high transmissibility means large outbreaks would lead to a run on medical resources and expose vulnerable groups, including hundreds of millions of elderly people. China's official death toll had stayed near just 4,600 since 2020 until more than 560 fatalities struck Shanghai in April and May, spurring other cities to further enhance their COVID defences. Chinese health authorities predicted last month that for every 100,000 infections there would be at least 100 deaths.
China has yet to approve any foreign vaccines or any domestically made shots based on mRNA technology. Authorities have also not pushed for a quicker pace of vaccination this year, compared with a big vaccination campaign in 2021.As of Tuesday, 3.44 billion doses had been administered, with over 90% of China's population fully vaccinated. But only around 60% of the general population has received booster shots. About 80% of those aged 60 and above have had additional doses.”
|Cold War II||“The United States remains the world’s leading power with global interests, and it cannot afford to choose between Europe and the Indo-Pacific.

|Bernard Montgomery||“The next war on land will be very different from the last one, in that we shall have to fight it in a different way. In reaching a decision on that matter, we must first be clear about certain rules of war. Rule 1, on page I of the book of war, is: "Do not march on Moscow". Various people have tried it, Napoleon and Hitler, and it is no good. That is the first rule. I do not know whether your Lordships will know Rule 2 of war. It is: "Do not go fighting with your land armies in China". It is a vast country, with no clearly defined objectives, and an army fighting there would be engulfed by what is known as the Ming Bing, the people's insurgents.”||Bernard Montgomery||30 May 1962|
|James O'Neill||“Throughout 2020 the Chinese progressively barred imports from Australia, or imposed swingeing tariffs. The professed reasons for doing so by the Chinese were a fig leaf. The intention was clearly to damage Australian exports, and it succeeded, with volumes of goods sold to China dropping dramatically throughout 2020 and into 2021.|
It was not just exports that were affected. China was also the largest source of foreign students in Australian universities, a multi-billion-dollar source of revenue. Literally hundreds of Australian university staff have been laid off in recent months. The Chinese government is openly advising students to look elsewhere for their education.
|Social media||“Social media manipulation was pioneered by Israel in 2009, during its Gaza offensive, not by Russia and China.
