In a Labour Day news conference, US President Donald Trump talked about “decoupling” America’s economy from Communist China. Much of America’s manufacturing has been decimated by the Communist regime and the US president wants to end American’s dependence on China.
But there may more going on here than we realize.
China analyst Gordon Chang told Fox News decoupling is the right move because China has gone from partner to adversary and global threat.
“The United States defends the current international system, China is trying to overthrow it,” Chang said.
“Xi Jinping has been talking increasingly about this tien seeyan notion, the notion that China has the mandate of heaven to rule the entire world, they not only have the right to do it, they have the obligation to do it,” Chang explained.
“Decoupling is a good idea. China is configuring its military to kill Americans and we shouldn’t be enriching a hostile Chinese regime with our trade and our investments, decoupling is what we must do,” Chang said.
So, where did this mandate from heaven come from? As I have mentioned in the past, Karl Marx, the founder of communism, wrote poetry.
Here is a couple stanza’s out of Marx’s poem called Invocation of One in Despair:
So a god has snatched from me my all
In the curse and rack of destiny,
All his worlds are gone beyond recall, nothing but revenge is left in me.
I shall build my throne high overhead.
Cold, tremendous shall its summit be
For its bulwark — superstitious dread.
For its marshal — blackest agony.
In a second poem Marx declares himself equal with God:
Then I will be able to walk triumphantly
Like a god, through the rains of their kingdom
Every word of mine is fire and action.
My breast is equal to that of the Creator.
When you combine these stanzas, you realize they sound eerily familiar to another passage written by the prophet Isaiah describing Satan’s fall:
“But you (Satan) said in your heart,
‘I will ascend to heaven;
I will raise my throne above the stars of God,
And I will sit on the mount of assembly
In the recesses of the north. (Isaiah 14:13-14 NASV)
