A totalitarian state cannot reform itself. If containment is applied to China by the United States and it is connected with similar offensive tactics as used by the Reagan administration during the 1980s the regime in Peking will collapse.

Around ninety years ago a terrible disaster fell upon China. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was formed in 1921. This party was half a century later responsible for the deaths of 50 million Chinese men, women and children, maybe as many as 80 million. A disaster much worse than any natural disaster. The party of genocide still rules in Peking. The men and women responsible for the genocide are still honored. The military power of the PRC, that used to be directed at the Chinese people, is today turned against the United States and its citizens.

China believes that all means are legitimate to achieve its totalitarian ends. It suffered the witless Great Leap Forward, the maniacal Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution of 1966 and the post-Mao massacre at the Tiananmen Square 1989. The Chinese are still subject to the CCP’s own version of gulag, laogai, and anybody can be sent to forced labor camps without a court trial, or “socialism with Chinese characteristics”.

The Chinese version of perestroika without freedom of speech has been the introduction of economic reform to strengthen the CCP grip on the population. This kickstarted the then moribund Chinese economy. Reforming an evil government carries risks. CCP has made it clear that there might be changes in the economy, but the party may not be challenged.

What legitimizes the CCP without Marxism-Leninism? Nationalistic and resisting the United States, Peking will in the future be a demanding negotiator over Taiwan.

It has been said that the overall costs for the United States of the Cold War was 12,800 billion dollars. New such costs can be avoided if the CCP rule in China is challenged in the coming decades. The collapse of the Soviet empire did not lead to chaos and a republican model can be offered for the administration of mainland China in the event CCP collapses.

First containment and then the so called American Adaptation described by American attorney and author Laurence Beilenson is the answer to the growing China threat.

The basis of Chinese strategy is the classical dictum to subdue the enemy without fighting (Sun Zi, Wu Zi and Guan Zhong). China believes that after Hong Kong and Macao the United States can be bullied into letting it have Taiwan.

The United States is best served by using containment and then offensive strategy toward China. That will hasten the collapse on the mainland and lead to the reintroduction of republican structures. This could be a future model to avoid chaos. Now is the time to turn the tables on the dismal Western policies from 1939 to 1949.

The timetable should be a reversal on the mainland in time for at least for the 100th anniversary of China’s greatest catastrophe, the forming and rule of CCP. There is a need for a new China strategy of the West for at most the two coming decades to achieve what is needed in cooperation with the United States allies in Asia. A collapse of the CCP hold over the mainland would remove the greatest threat to the survival of Western civilization. After a China regime collapse the West can devote itself to a greatly needed revival assuring a peaceful and prosperous development for the coming centuries, a development which all other cultures can benefit from without risking their identity.

Of course new threats may arise against Western civilization in the future but the removal of the CCP from power in Peking would give the West time to prepare for these new threats.
