Summary/Abstract: To solidify the new international order, China needs to effectively export its model in a way that garners widespread adoption beyond the troubled nations in the EU. Made in China 2025 and the Belt and Road Initiative combine to solidify this thinking within the multinational corporate system and the development endeavors of OECD nations. By appropriating the technological heights from the West and using it along with non-market based economic, financial and trade behaviors the CCP seeks to enshrine China at the center of the means for global information flows in the 21st century. The West’s folly has extended to the growth of the Internet, a lawless space which defies the ability of mankind to govern. Precisely because the technology was never designed to be governable. Individual liberty, rule of law, private property and sovereignty all require an enforcement mechanism.
