Right, but what i'm saying is international money has a lot of control over western governments, but thus far not much over China's government. In fact, China has been intimidating corporations that criticize China policies.
The way China's government could be corrupted by corporations is by bribes, which is exactly why our government has been corrupted by corps. But China is still far more oriented towards its own economic national interests than the US. China doesn't want US-based corporations to become stronger, they want to steal all the IP they can from them to make China's own state-controlled enterprises richer and more powerful, and they want US jobs & contracts shipped to China to make their economy more wealthy.
And when you say that "their economy is there to serve the Chinese," you are implying that "our economy is there to serve us" is not true. And maybe it isn't.
I'm not implying that, please don't put words in my mouth. I said specifically that our government does a lot to serve the interests of corporations over national and citizen interests, and corporations only care about profit.
What makes you think that the international money-hegemons won't figure out a way to fool the Chinese into giving up their surplus labor JUST LIKE THEY FOOLED US?
And they are constantly looking for ways to manipulate people to give up their surplus labor and sovereignty. What makes you think they won't expand their production of false consciousness to embrace their new "Chinese empire enforcers?"
You seem most concerned about worker exploitation. I'm much more concerned about the threat China's skyrocketing economy/power and bad intentions poses to western nations. I think you and everyone else need to get your priorities in order. The bourgeoisie as a threat paled in comparison to Nazi Germany. The difference between Nazis and the CCP is the CCP doesn't want to dominate the world using tanks.
Everyone's a captain baby, ship of fools.
