of the Belt and Road Initiative
As of President Xi Jinping's trip to Europe from May 22-28 (2019) have demonstrated, there is for the first time a sense that the post-industrial society dominant in the west since the 1971 floating of the dollar, is no longer the dismal fate of nations.
Xi Jinping has carried the BRI a program into the heart of Europe as a lifeline for all patriots who wish to survive the coming financial collapse.
As of Saturday March 23,
the first G7 country has officially joined this program, with
Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte signing his nation onto
the historic Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with China
which itself creates a great precedent for other nations caught
within the Euro cage to join.
After signing the MOU, Conte made the point that the 10 economic agreements and 18 institutional agreements reached between China and Italy amount to $23 billion, but more important that the money, the agreement carries a new set of "operating procedures" into Italy's world which tie money to the long term growth of the real economy rather than short term fluctuations of the London-Wall Street controlled markets.
It is this new set of rules uncontrolled by western technocrats that keeps the oligarchy up at night.
Italy's Minister for Economic Development Luigi Di Maio stated:
While the US National Security Council attacked this MOU days before Xi's visit stating that it gives "legitimacy to China's predatory approach", La Trobe Asia's Executive Director Euan Graham made the point that there was no choice since the European Union has no policy but austerity to demand of its members.
Soon thereafter the two heads of state were joined by Angela Merkel and EU President Jean-Claude Juncker in an unannounced meeting.
Regardless of Macron's resistance to join the BRI, it was a brilliant success and demonstrated how China's response to the hostility often presented by the NATO-led western alliance has been to respond with olive branches and good will at every turn.
In an op-ed titled 'Move Together Towards Common Development' published in Le Figaro, President Xi wrote:
After calling for scientific, nuclear power, and aerospace cooperation and collaboration on the Belt and Road Initiative President Xi ended his op-ed with:
China knows that the western banking system is on the verge of a collapse much greater than anything which struck in 2008 and they know that as that reality hits, the desire for real policies that carry real development, growth and survival of the PHYSICAL (rather than merely monetary) aspects of the economy will become a priority for nations of the west.
This is a reality which
the utopian technocrats attempting to manage a crumbling system
like the 'gods of Olympus' cannot deal with, and a reality which
should empower citizens across the world to organize for a better
world founded on cooperation, common development and long term
