Communist China: The Social Experiment of the British & Anglo-American Establishment

6 July 2023

The Fentanyl Crisis is a form of geopolitical warfare waged by the International Banking Cartel, “Disarm the capitalists with the things they like to taste [meaning drugs].” -Zhou Enlai

The British and Anglo Americans Establish Communism in China

The nineteenth century British Opium Wars were initiated by the East India Company and involved major City of London banks, trading companies, and shipping lines. In 1865, the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) was founded by Thomas Sutherland and was the clearinghouse bank for the world opium trade. City of London bankers and Wall Street funded the Bolsheviks in Russia, Adolf Hitler in Germany, and Mao Zedong in China.

The Rockefeller family’s Standard Oil was selling kerosene in China since the time of the American Civil War to Deng Xiaoping’s reform era. In the 20th century, their investment in China’s science, medicine, and higher education was upwards of a billion dollars. The Rockefellers were major donors to the ivy leagues such as Yale and Harvard.

In 1901, the Yale-China Association was founded by a group of Yale graduates and faculty members committed to establishing Western education and medicine in China. In 1903, Yale Divinity School established a number of schools and hospitals throughout China that were collectively known as ‘Yale in China.’ By the 1920s, the group founded “Hsiang-Ya” (Hunan—Yale) Hospital, as well as the Xiangya Medical College, and the Peking Union Medical College Hospital directly funded by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Without Yale’s support, Mao Zedong may never have risen from obscurity to establish the Chinese Communist Party. Mao received his introduction to communist theory at the Yale in China schools and he became the editor of Yale Journal in 1919.

'Chemical Warfare by Indigenous Methods'

In 1928, Mao Zedong instructed one of his trusted subordinates, Tan Chen-lin, to begin cultivating opium on an industrial scale. Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai first began using opium as a political weapon against their own people during his war to establish Communism throughout China.

He had two objectives: trade for needed supplies and 'drugging the white region' where 'white' referred to his non-communist opposition. Mao's strategy was simple: use narcotics to soften a target area. As soon as Mao secured his power in 1949, opium production was nationalized, and drug trafficking used against the non-communists became a state sanctioned activity of the People's Republic of China. The primary organizations involved in the early 1950s were the Chinese Foreign Ministry, the Trade Ministry, and the Intelligence Service and the official targets were Japan, the United States military personnel stationed in East Asia, and mainland United States. North Korea was also trafficking drugs in cooperation with China at this time and was directly connected with the flow of drugs into Japan during the Second Sino-Japanese War and US military bases in the East Asia.

During the Korean War, the Chinese and North Koreans used narcotics against US servicemen to undermine the effectiveness of the American military and raise revenue. As part of this mission, Eastern Bloc Czechoslovak intelligence assisted in constructing a hospital in North Korea under the cover of treating casualties. The hospital was used instead as a research facility in which Czechoslovak, Soviet, North Korean, and Chinese doctors experimented on US and South Korean prisoners of war.

Those studies showed American and South Korean POWs were exposed to chemical, biological, and psychochemical warfare experiments. These inhumane experiments were justified as preparations for the next war.

In 1957, at the third meeting of the Central Committee of the CCP, the Chinese decided to expand their narcotics offensive as part of the 'Great Leap Forward.' During the Vietnam War, China and the Soviet Union competed for the drug business of US servicemen.

During a 1958 meeting in Wuhan, Zhou Enlai discussed increasing opium production:

“The Centre has decided to promote poppy cultivation on a large scale.... Every one of you must awake to the fact that the war in Vietnam is likely to escalate and US imperialism has determined to fight against our revolutionary camp by increasing its military force in Vietnam.... From the revolutionary point of view, the poppy is a great force to assist the course of our revolution and should be used; from the class point of view, the poppy can also become a powerful weapon to win the proletarian revolution.... By exporting large quantities of morphine and heroin, we are able to weaken the US combat force and to defeat it without even fighting at all...”

Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, Zhou Enlai was the most important official orchestrating China's covert narcotics warfare operations.

In February 1964, Mikhail Suslov explained at a meeting of the Soviet Central Committee, Zhou Enlai’s strategy was “to disarm the capitalists with the things they like to taste [meaning drugs].”

The data from the early 1970s in Southeast Asia and Europe shows there was a huge surge in drug addiction among US servicemembers. Heroin was available outside every American base in Vietnam and was supplied to the local population by the Chinese.

The reaction of the US military on the drug crisis was to deny there was a problem, and then blamed it on the “poor quality” of recruits. But there is no question as to what caused the increase in drug use: It was due to flooding a target area with drugs, high-pressure marketing techniques, and artificially depressed prices. Prostitutes were used to push drugs on unsuspecting servicemen and addiction was acquired covertly by mixing opium and heroin into drugs that weren’t considered addictive, such as marijuana.

Cigarettes given away to American troops were also laced with narcotics. Heroin was sold as cocaine, which at the time cocaine was not considered addictive. We are seeing the same techniques with fentanyl today.
