China’s Cultural Revolution as the Primacy of Politics over Economy

Andrey Bykov

Economic historian


On October 23, 2022, the 20th CPC Congress concluded in Beijing adjourned. Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, was re-elected for a third term. This is a major event that has elicited a lot of commentary. And not just because of the personality of the current Chinese leader and his victory. The point is that from now on, all Chinese leaders may hold office for an unlimited number of terms. That is, if the economy warrants it, the policy that invented the “no more than ten years at the helm” rule will obey it. This is good news.

Those who objected to this move were removed from the governing bodies of the Party. The decisions of the 20th CPC Congress completed the “cultural revolution” that began back in 1966, in which politics victimized China’s economy as much as it wanted. Let us try to clarify this idea.

China, like the rest of Asia, has traditionally lived according to in a worldview of self-sufficiency. No Asian country in history has ever in history attempted to establish world domination. China’s traditional values are respect for elders, a close-knit family that provides its elders with everything they need, and hard work, hard work, hard work. Never in its history has China started a war. The 1979 conflict with Vietnam was the exception, confirming this rule.

The economy is the medium of interaction between man and the material resources to which he applies his labor.

We can put it a slightly different way: the economy is the productive environment where man lives and works, providing himself with the conditions and objects necessary for life. Economy is concerned with addressing the individual’s’ and the national’s survival.

Politics is about living at someone else’s expense.

The relationship in which politics is in command of the economy is commonly referred to as the primacy of politics over economy.

The primacy of politics over economy had two antecedents:

The first was Nimrod who built the tower of Babylon. He was the great-grandson of the righteous Noah, from whom all modern men descended.

Nimrod began to build a tower to the sky in Babylon to set himself above all people. Thanks to the advent of rock-working technology, a pyramid of geometrically shaped stones was built. Stones, not bricks. Catholics have the correct translation of the description of this place in the Bible. The pyramid in Babylon became a model of mankind’s network control. This is how digitalization initially emerged in Babylon under Nimrod. Digitalization is a tool of the profit ideology and its world domination doctrine.

God destroyed the tower of Babylon. But people have built hundreds of pyramids in Egypt, Europe, China, Iraq, Mexico, Peru and other countries. Two of the most ancient surviving use everyday items are preserved in a museum in Taipei, Taiwan. They are two 4,500-years-old gray water-boiling kettles of different sizes shaped as six-tier pyramids.  

The second forerunner of the primacy of politics over economy was the Prophet Moses’ brother, Aaron, who cast the golden calf exactly 3,333 years ago.

After 430 years of slavery in Egypt, where Nimrod’s followers had built many pyramids resembling the tower of Babylon, the people of the Prophet Moses walked through the desert to the Holy Lland. While the prophet Moses talked with God for forty days on Mt. Sinai, his brother Aaron cast an Egyptian golden calf as an worship idol for worship.

God expressly forbids this kind of thing: “The engraved images of their gods shall you burn with fire: you shall not covet the silver or the gold that is on them, nor take it to you, lest you be snared therein; for it is an abomination to Yah your EL (5 Moses 7:25).

The first to formulate the very doctrine of the primacy of politics over economy was Nicola Machiavelli, a Florentine. He did so in his 1513 book, The PrinceSovereign, for Pope Leo X, the founder of the papal dynasty from the Medici family, the rulers of Florence. According to Machiavelli, the goals of the power always justify its means. This thesis has proved to be extremely destructive for mankind.

Winston Churchill named the most famous adherents to the primacy of politics over economy in his authoritative article Zionism versus Bolshevism (1920):

“From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing.”

Rosa Luxemburg, the author mentioned, was a member of the Second International and leader of the German political party of the primacy of politics over economy Spartakusbund (Spartacus Union), named after the Spartacus pseudonym,  Spartacus, used by Adam Weishaupt, to whom Winston Churchill referred to.

Winston Churchill’s favorite piece of music was Nimrod by the English composer Edward Elgar. According to Churchill’s will, he was buried in 1965 to the sound of Nimrod. We can assume that Churchill was a Nimrodian.

Politics is a factor in destabilizing the economy

People go into politics: 

a) to take over someone else’s property,

b) to protect the misappropriated property,

c) to pass laws that will protect the misappropriated property for generations to come.

All French socialist utopian theories led to revolutions. And every revolution is detrimental to the economy.

That is, the primacy of politics over economy is a doctrine that destroys economy and statehood.

The primacy of politics over economy is completely uncharacteristic for Asian countries. On the contrary, Asia is characterized by the primacy of economy over everything.

Before 1911, China had no politics whatsoever. The country lived by its economic interests. Politics divided the people of China into factions, which feuded for power. In the end, Mao Zedong won. In 1958-1960, he made an amateurish attempt at the rapid industrialization of China, called The Great Leap Forward. Its failure and the deaths of some 20 million people called into question Mao Zedong’s future.

In the struggle for his personal power, Mao Zedong launched China’s Cultural Revolution in 1966. It was a glaring example of the primacy of politics over economy.

The purges of the “cultural revolution” brought chaos to China’s economy, science, educational system, and public administration system. Yet Mao remained in power.

Confucius instilled in China a love of family and elders. Mao, on the other hand, claimed that respect for elders hindered China’s forward momentum. Mao wanted to destroy the traditional ways of doing things. He demanded that all power in the country be transferred to the youth. The Hongweibians shouted: “Don’t love your mother, don’t love your father, but love your country”.

The youth derided their teachers; they killed the rector of Peking University. The system of higher education system was destroyed, and the next generations of Chinese youth went to study in the West. Young employees of public institutions trashed the offices where they worked. Leaders at all levels, including the highest state officials, such as China’s Premier Liu Shaoqi, were assassinated.

Gradually, people in China stopped working. The Red Guards groups began to clash with each other. Mao ordered the army into the cities and suppressed the youth riots. Mao did not recognize the rule of law or the courts. At his first demand, the people had to make short work of the undesirable individuals themselves. This is very characteristic of the primacy of politics over economy.

How the power of politics over the state and the economy was established 

The power of politics over the state and the economy, that is, political power, first emerged in Great Britain in 1840. A few words about how that happened…

Between the 16th and the 18thth centuries, Europe witnessed the advent of undercover societies of adherents to the primacy of politics over economy.

At some point, they got the audacious idea to collect all of the world’s gold in their hands through the issuance of unsecured money by the states.

The first experiment was run in Russia in 1654, when Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich issued the copper ruble and equated it with the silver ruble. The experiment failed. But in terms of method, it helped establish a private Bank of England in 1694, which issued paper money, secured by gold by a mere 50%.

Monarchies, including the Chinese Empire, existed under a system of the primacy of economy over everything. Monarchs had a master’s mentality of multiplying their country’s wealth. There was no politics in monarchies.

It was therefore proposed that all monarchies should be destroyed, and the power of time-serving politicians, who would implement the primacy of politics over economy, should be established all over the world.

In 1784, the German proponents of the primacy of politics over economy gathered in the city of Weimar. Among them was the great German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. In his tragedy Faust, he described a plan to issue unsecured money and use it to amass all gold: “One ticket now equals a hundred coins”. Thanks to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the world has known for two hundred years that the primacy of politics over economy proponents issue unsecured money and buy up gold with it.

In 1787, a cell of the primacy of politics over economy proponents led by Adam Weishaupt, a prominent theorist of the concept, was uncovered and expelled from Bavaria. The Bavarian authorities published a book with documents evidencing the cell’s plans to overthrow the monarchies and distributed it to all the governments of Europe. French King Louis XVI did not heed the warning and soon afterwards ended up on the guillotine.

Adam Weishaupt and his team moved from Bavaria to the city of Gotha, where Duke Ernst II of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg (his pseudonym in Adam Weishaupt’s cell was Timaleon) ruled. The duke was the only European monarch to support the 1789 revolution in France. 

Thus the city of Gotha became, in 1787, the European capital of the primacy of politics over economy. This is an important circumstance. The rulers of Gotha helped those who advocated the primacy of politics over economy, and those advocates reciprocated, albeit in their own interests. Adam Weishaupt died in Gotha in 1830, already during the reign of Ernst I, the first Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (1784-1844). He was the monarch who founded the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha dynasty, which today reigns in Great Britain and several other European states. Duke Ernst I had nine siblings. The primacy of politics over economy adherents advanced, not without a selfish interest, all members of this family to the European thrones.

The eldest sister of Duke Ernst I, Juliana-Henrietta-Ulrica (1781-1860), renamed Anna Fyodorovna, married Tsesarevich Konstantin Pavlovich, the second son of Russian Emperor Paul I. They divorced in 1820.

His brother Leopold (1790-1865) married, in 1816, the daughter of the British regent George IV and heiress to the English throne, Charlotte Augusta (died in childbirth in 1817).

In 1811, King George III of Great Britain was declared legally incapable. His son George IV was appointed his regent and became King in 1820, ruling the country until 1830. His only daughter Charlotte Augusta, as we already know, died in 1817. After that, keeping the German Hannoverian dynasty on the British throne became a critical issue in England.

In 1818, two brothers: Leopold, the widowed son-in-law of George IV, and Duke Ernst I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha gave their sister Mary Louise Victoria (1786-1861) in marriage to Edward Augustus, the fourth son of King George III. For this service, proponents of the primacy of politics over economy tried, in 1828, to make Leopold king of the newly independent Greece. And when the attempt failed, the Kingdom of Belgium was created in 1830-31 specifically for him by the partition of the Netherlands, which he ruled as Leopold I until his death.

On May 24, 1819 Maria Louise Victoria gave birth to daughter Alexandrina Victoria. Her godfather was the Russian emperor Alexander I, highly respected in England for his victory over Napoleon.

Frederick, Duke of York, the second son of King George III died in 1827, leaving no children.

William IV, the third son of King George III reigned from 1830 to 1837. His children died in infancy. William IV was the last British monarch to appoint a prime minister against the will of the Parliament.

Since Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent, the fourth son of King George III died as early as 1820, his daughter Alexandrina Victoria became Queen Victoria of Great Britain on June 20, 1837.

In 1840, proponents of the primacy of politics over economy arranged the wedding of Queen Victoria, niece of the ruler of Gotha Duke Ernst I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, to her cousin, Prince Albert, the son of the ruler of Gotha, Duke Ernst I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

The newly-fledged King Leopold I of Belgium, the uncle of both newlyweds, played a key role in their marriage. Perhaps the bodies of such supranational structures of primacy of politics over economy as NATO and the European Union are located in the Kingdom of Belgium not only because of the Belgian cuisine – the best in Europe – but also due to the role King Leopold I of Belgium played in establishing political power in Britain and elsewhere.

Since the time the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha dynasty was set up in Britain, British monarchs have discontinued their centuries-old tradition of regularly disregarding the views of the Parliament when appointing prime ministers.

That is why 1840 is considered the year when the power of politics over the state and the economy was founded in England. Britain’s young political power needed an ideology of its own and commissioned young journalists Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels to elaborate one.

As early as 1836, the primacy of politics over economy proponents set up a secret society in France called the League of Outlaws. It would have been more appropriate to call it the “The League of the Primacy of Politics Over Economy Proponents Expelled from the United States of America”, because, in 1836, the US Congress did not renew the license of the private Second Bank of the United States to issue unsecured money. The bank was 100% owned by those committed to the primacy of politics over economy and held such a license in 1816-1836.

The previous holder of the license, between 1791 and 1811 was the First Bank of the United States, of which 80% was controlled by a group of the primacy of politics over economy proponents with 20% owned by the United States.

Protestant Christians in the U.S. Congress twice refused – in 1811 and 1836 – to renew licenses to private banks of the primacy of politics over economy proponents. In fact, the economy always comes first for Protestant Christians, who created the U.S. and have long constituted the majority of the U.S. population. Jack London wrote that they were “close-to-nature men of broad souls, with simple thoughts and keen eyes”.

Protestant Christians had long prevented the advent of the power of politics over economy in the United States. Politics exists as a form of life at someone else’s expense; it lives on taxes paid from the population. And it was precisely these population taxes that had been virtually non-existent in the early years of the United States of America. The U.S. income tax, was introduced as late as 1913, aimed only at giving the politicians an additional delta in the budget that could be stolen invisibly through inflation. It was for this very purpose that a private Federal Reserve System was set up the same year – in 1913.

But back then, in 1836, the primacy of politics over the economy proponents who had lost their source of income in the United States needed to do something. The League of Outlaws was transformed into the League of the Just and moved from Paris to London.

Karl Marx creates “political economy” as the ideology of the primacy of politics over economy.

From 1844, the 26 -years-old Karl Marx and the 24 -years-old Friedrich Engels worked together.

From 1847, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels collaborated with the League of the Just, which was transformed into the Communist League but remained an activist group for the primacy of politics over economy.

After the failure of the Communist revolutions in Europe in 1847-1849, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels moved to England and embarked on writing works on political economy, as the ideology of the primacy of politics over economy. They were commissioned by Britain’s young political power which sought to collect in Great Britain all the world’s gold with a view to establishing world domination. Back then, gold was considered a symbol of power. Whoever had gold could afford much.

Karl Marx created political economy solely for the sake of inflation – the mechanism which would enabling the primacy of politics over economy proponents to covertly buy up gold. Political economy was aimed primarily to give a veneer of objectivity to inflation. Karl Marx sought to address this aim in the first volume of Das Kapital. It does not contain the term “inflation”, which appeared soon after the volume’s publication, but it’s aimed was entirely to prepare readers for the emergence of inflation, for money coming from nowhere.

Karl Marx’s formula “Money – Commodity – More Money” could take shape only in the mind of someone who has never worked anywhere. In practice, there is no such thing, for no one is spared losses. In the life of every entrepreneur the reality is: there are situations that spell “Money – Commodity – Less Money”.

And it is precisely the economy of state machination, born together with inflation that always affords an inflation delta that has been stolen from state budgets over the past hundred years by those who need the primacy of politics over economy.

The second, third, and fourth volumes of Das Kapital do not count, since they were written by completely different people after Karl Marx’s death in order just to render the tome more “authoritative”. You will agree that four books are more than one.

Inflation Doctrine

The concept of inflation as an economy of state machinations with the aim of stealing money from the state budget emerged in 1864. Politicians steal money from the state budget through distribution of government contracts to relatives and friends. At the year’s -end, the central bank prints additional money equal to the value of the stolen amount and puts it into circulation.

The amount stolen is determined by the central bank’s set rate. If the rate is 2% and the budget is 100 million, then 2 million will be stolen from the budget, and then an additional 2 million will be printed and thrown into circulation. The inflationary delta created in the budget is stolen strictly for covert acquisition of gold. As a result of the issuance of additional money, all prices in the country will rise by 2%. Thus, due to the hike in prices of goods, the unwitting public will finance the purchase of gold by the primacy of politics over the economy beneficiaries equaling the amount of the two million the latter have stolen.

The German economist, doctor of state science Hjalmar Schacht, who saw through this scheme, published a number of research articles on the subject in 1920-1923. He was made lifelong president of the Imperial Bank of Germany in November 1923 and, in just six months, stamped out the highest hyperinflation in world history – that is in Germany – which stood at 1,000 times per month.

With this accomplishment, Dr. Hjalmar Schacht refuted political economy and proved that inflation is man-made. Where there is no need for inflation, there is none. Japan, living in a self-sufficient economy, has long demonstrated this to the world. The prices went down in Germany under H. Schacht. There was no inflation in the USSR between 1924 and 1961, and the prices of all goods were reduced threefold between 1947 and 1953. No one anywhere has been able to replicate this achievement of the Russian economic school, which built the most effective in world history economic model of production concentration, the so-called three “S’s”: Starobrjadtsy [Old Believers] – Stolypin – Stalin.

The U.S. President John Fitzgerald Kennedy reinstated the U.S. government’s right to issue dollars and put U.S. government dollars into circulation in parallel with those of the Federal Reserve System. In his address of April 27, 1961, he emphasized that he was a Christian and openly opposed any covert power over the American people (President John F. Kennedy, Address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association, Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York City, April 27, 1961).

According to our calculations, 243,000 tons of gold were bought up with the money stolen through inflation from the U.S. federal budget in 1914-2019. This gold was stolen from four generations of American taxpayers with a view to make their descendants digital slaves.

This is how we computed it: we took the size of the U.S. federal budget and the inflation rate per year. This allowed us to calculate the amount of inflationary money stolen. We then divided the inflationary money separately per each year by the price of gold in that year and obtained the physical mass of gold purchased by the primacy of politics over the economy beneficiaries. Finally, we added up the gold mass for all 105 years and came up with the figure of 243,000 tons.

Let us repeat the exercise in reverse order: some money is stolen from the federal budget and to offset this, prices of all goods and services are raised by the inflation rate generated by the rate the central bank sets.

The money stolen from the state budget is used to buy gold precisely the way Johann Wolfgang von Goethe described in Faust. In fact, the entire population of the country pays for this gold through inflation-driven higher prices of all goods and services.

How much gold is there in the world?

The second aim of political economy is to conceal the true figure of how much gold mankind has on hand.

The main secret of political economy, guarded with the utmost care, is how much gold is in circulation on our planet. Political economy underestimates the gold amount in the hands of mankind by a factor of about 9, according to our calculations.

The Bible narrates in the Third Book of Kings that three thousand years ago the monarch of the relatively small kingdom of Israel named Solomon collected 666 talents of gold a year in taxes. That amounted to about thirty tons. That is, he collected 1,200 tons of gold in forty years of his reign.

That was three thousand years ago in the tiny kingdom of Israel alone. By the way, when public figures like retiring British Prime Minister Liz Truss publicly make the sign of 666 with their hand, this is about “shadow gold”.

After getting involved in the “gold rush” in Canada, Jack London wrote in The Call of the Wild about how much gold was mined in the Klondike:

“Spring came again, and after a long wander they finally found, not a legendary abandoned cabin, but a surface placer in a wide valley with so much gold that it settled like yellow oil at the bottom of a wash trough. The three comrades did not continue their search. Here they were washing thousands of dollars worth of pure gold sand and nuggets in a day, and they worked every day. The gold was poured into bags of elk skins, fifty pounds per bag, and the bags were stacked like firewood in front of a hut they had woven for themselves out of spruce branches. Absorbed by their hard work, they did not notice how time flew by. The days flew by like a dream, and the piles of treasures grew and grew.” 

The state-machinations economy emerged in 1914, after the -already the-third private central bank in U.S. history – the Federal Reserve System – was set up. The U.S. Federal Reserve dollars characteristically feature the Nimrod pyramid. A hundred years of inflation around the world between 1914 to 2014 witnessed the beneficiaries of the primacy of politics over economy the amassing of about 1,650,000 tons of gold – about 90% of all gold mined in the history of mankind.

The West loses economic thinking ability 

According to the Basel III regulatory framework by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision at the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, “shadow gold” legalization is scheduled to start on January 1, 2023. It is expected to be achieved through the all-round introduction of digital stablecoin secured by “shadow gold”. In April 2022, the stablecoin became legal tender in the United Kingdom. This was implemented by the then-chancellor of the U.K. Treasury, the 42-year-old billionaire Rishi Sunak. He has just become the country’s prime minister.

Rishi Sunak is originally from India. He is the one who is to bring the gold standard back to England. Only a native of India can solve this problem! – surprisingly, this is what the situation looks like today. The UK probably does not currently have nowadays a single prominent person of Anglo-Saxon origin who, after fifty years of ignoring on the theory of gold, has a record of articulate statements in favor of abandoning unsecured money and inflation and bringing back the gold standard. 

That is, everyone is in the know. But the secrecy surrounding “shadow gold” has long blocked public discussions of a “gold standard” in England. This is evidenced, for example, by declassified talks, featured in our book The Digital Economy and the Future of the Gold Standard (2018), between employees of the U.S. Embassy in London and British bankers. By the way, the situation is exactly the same in the U.S. 

A native of India will have no difficulty in explaining to the British the benefits of the gold standard for economic stability. Every Indian household has gold. India’s economy is built on a solid foundation of gold. That is why the country has never known economic crises in its history.

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels created political economy in Britain as a for-export-only product. That is why, for the 150 years after the event, British economic science has had to live a double life. In physical terms, Great Britain and Canada, unlike other Western countries, have staunchly sustained their national industrial production of all strategically important items at the level of self-sufficiency level. They have not moved their production to Asia.

Only the U.S. and the European Union have slipped into political economy. It was for them that the theory of international production was written, replacing, in the 1960s, the classical international trade theory.

In order to destroy all states and transfer power to the banks and the transnational corporations they control, it was imperative to defeat state science in the United States, Germany, and Russia. This is precisely what political economy has been involved in.

In Britain, public administration is free from political economy. On the contrary, it holds all of the controls of the world political economy in its hands – world trade, world money, and monetary funds. For example, many sectors of the world economy live by the norms of the British Standards Institution.

When the eminent High Commissioner of India to the United Kingdom, Dr. Lakshmi Mall Singhvi, succeeded, in 1991-1997, to secure life tenure in the House of Lords for six ethnic Indians, the City of London insiders were aware that it was linked to the impending return of the gold standard. This was because even back then, hardly any British economist was able to hold a public scholarly debate on the theory of gold. But the natives of India have always been able to do this.

Look at the kind of nonsense for which the Nobel prizes in political economy are awarded for. This is all because after the gold-dollar standard was abolished in the world in 1971, political economy has wiped out almost all of the economists in the West.

But in India, everyone is an economist. It’s no coincidence that:
Google’s head is Sundar Pichai of India,
Microsoft’s boss is Satya Nadella of India,
IBM’s head is Arvind Krishna of India,
Novartis is managed by Vasant Narasimhan of India.
And the list can be expanded.

Western universities have long discontinued teaching the gold theory.

Worse than that, it seems that a part of society in the West has got so carried away by politics and the economic colonization of the planet, i.e., living at someone else’s expense, that it has largely lost the very ability to think in terms of economy. The economy seeks to address human survival. And it is as if they don’t need an economy, as if they don’t need to survive. They want a feast for the here and now. Their planning timeline has become shorter than their arm’s length. They believe that they can get their food and energy through politics. But imagine, for a moment, what would happen to a tribe of savages if they tried to solve their survival issues not by economic means, but by politics….

The 8,000 members of the American research association Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee have since 1998 maintained that the gold standard will inevitably return. This is precisely why the West cannot do without the help of Indian natives in its comeback.

The key surprise of the primacy of politics over economy

But the main surprise future developments hold is that the primacy of politics over economy beneficiaries have – not accidentally – amassed gold in a strictly monopolistic manner (1,650,000 tons out of the 1,850,000 tons mankind has today).

The holders of the gold monopoly can easily change all world prices in relation to gold, even by as much as by a factor of 10,000.

That is, an ounce of gold could soon be worth $20 million. 

Just imagine what the primacy of politics over economy has set its sights on:

1) unsecured money will stop working;

2) gold will be the only money left;

3) all gold is already concentrated in a single pair of hands, and, in addition,

4) the scale of all world prices against gold will change by a factor of 10,000.

Those who commissioned the primacy of politics over economy seek to establish their world domination. Herbert G. Wells, presumably a British intelligence officer from the MI7, a branch of the British War Office’s Directorate of Military Intelligence with responsibilities for press liaison and propaganda, wrote The New World Order, an outspoken book on the subject in 1940.

Incidentally, his common-law wife Maria Zakrevskaya-Benkendorf-Budberg- Bennigshausen helped him to write the book. She personally knew many fans of the primacy of politics over economy. In 1918, the Cheka arrested her in the apartment of the British intelligence resident Bruce Lockhart. From 1920 to 1932, she was Maxim Gorky’s common-law wife, and then brought the writer’s archive to England. It contained many interesting things, such as for example, information about the secret school that operated between 1909 and 1913 on the island of Capri for training saboteurs to be sent to Russia. And about the instructors and students of the primacy of politics over economy course that it had offered.

In 1864, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels founded the First International in London, financed by the Bank International. In order to initiate the theft of gold through inflation, proponents of the primacy of politics over economy needed to destroy the absolute monarchies in the countries of Europe and Asia and, following the example of Great Britain, to establish political power there.

The primacy of politics over economy, which proliferated in Britain and Germany through the political economy of Karl Marx, led to the outbreak of World War I in 1914. It started between the two grandsons of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha: the German Emperor Wilhelm II and King George V of England. The primacy of politics over economy proponents facilitated their decision to go to war. 

Economy never needs a war, but politics does. World War I was staged to destroy the monarchies, to trigger inflation, and to enable the beneficiaries of the primacy of politics over economy to buy up all the world’s gold with money gained through inflation.

The expression “Das Primat der Politik,” that is, “the primacy of politics,” was a favorite of Adolf Hitler, who unleashed World War II.

Germany twice became a British colony as a result of the two world wars it started. But that was exactly the reason the Judases of the German nation, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, created political economy – so that sovereign states could be turned into foreign colonies. Friedrich Engels even had his monument erected in Manchester.

Every historical event is underpinned by a specific economic interest. People can say whatever they want about religion or politics, but in fact the motivating interest is always economical. All the events of 2022 are underpinned by a forthcoming attempt to legalize the “shadow gold” held by the primacy of politics over economy beneficiaries. 

They need people all over the planet to think about the military conflict in Ukraine, how much it costs to fill up their cars and about the temperature in their houses. This will allow 1,650,000 tons of physical gold to emerge in the banks unnoticed, out of nowhere. They are putting an invisibility cap on their Babylonian tower of pure gold.

Every country that adheres to the primacy of politics over economy and its ideology of political economy always ends up in the position of a foreign colony. This could also apply to China. But it seems that the 20th Congress of the CPC scrapped in China scrapped the primacy of politics over economy authored by Nicolas Machiavelli, -Karl Marx, and -Adolf Hitler.

Beijing will soon have important decisions to make. After all, those who have reaped benefits from the one-hundred-year-long reign of politics over economy will pit about 1,650,000 tons of “shadow gold”, prepared for legalization starting on January 1, 2023 against China’s state gold reserve of 2,000 tons and about 20,000 tons – the real gold reserve of the country’s entire population. 

Changing hierarchy of state goal-setting in China

The decisions of the 20th CPC Congress may mean a change in China’s hierarchy of state goal-setting. And this is by far more important than the one-off removal of a group of opponents from power.

China’s Cultural Revolution began in 1966 as a manifestation of Mao Zedong’s personal primacy of politics over economy. The Great Leap led to a great collapse, and Mao was struggling for personal power. A lot can change now.    

The role of personality in history

China’s incumbent leader Xi Jinping was, in his younger years, a victim of Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution

His father, Xi Zhongxun (1913-2002), headed the propaganda department of the CPC Central Committee from 1952 and became vice chairman of the PRC State Council (government) in 1959. In 1962, he was removed from all posts and charged with the failure of the Great Leap Forward. His son was only 9 years old at the time. Xi Jinping’s mother was forced to disown her husband as an “enemy of the people”.

In 1969, the 15-year-old Xi Jinping was exiled to be “reformed through labor” to a poverty-stricken village with no electricity or running water. Only in 1975, was he allowed to return to Beijing. He is well aware of how difficult life is for the ordinary Chinese, and he has his own personal score to settle with the “cultural revolution” as the primacy of politics over economy.

During his ten-year tenure, President Xi Jinping has sought to not only promote China’s domestic commodity production, the way his predecessors did, but also to boost the population’s effective demand, especially in the rural areas. Forty years ago, the subject of his Ph.D. thesis was “A Study of Market Economy Development in Rural Areas”.

As an economist researcher with extensive practical experience, Xi Jinping appreciates how imperative it is for China to abandon the primacy of politics over economy and return to the supremacy of economy over everything, under which China had lived for some 5,000 years prior to the 20th century. This is evidenced by Xi Jinping’s clear-cut assessments of the USSR’s self-sufficient economy under Stalin and his personal attention to the experience of the Soviet-type self-sufficient economy, carefully preserved in Belarus.

It is essential to bear in mind that the USSR under Stalin, like China today, had a self-sufficient economy.

Two factors ruined it in the USSR:
1. The primacy of politics over the self-sufficient economy.
2. Stalin’s desire to assert his unlimited personal power.

These were exactly the same causes that destroyed China’s centuries-old self-sufficient economy during the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution of Mao Zedong. 

Xi Jinping’s family went through great tribulations. But in the end, China got a leader far more stronger motivated than his opponents. Obviously, he has a much clearer hierarchy of goal-setting. 

China did the right thing when it dropped the limit on the length of tenure for the nation’s leader. This restores the mentality of a responsible owner and eliminates the mentality of timekeepers in the country. This is the second most important change in economic priorities after the primacy of the politics over the economy was replaced by the primacy of the economy over everything. We should not underestimate, at this juncture, the important role of Vice-Chairman Wang Qishan in combating the mentality of timekeepers and embezzlers.

Inflation, as we have seen, is a form of embezzlement. By its ruthless drive against embezzlement, China is setting an extremely important example for the victory of the self-sufficient economy over inflation globally.

Self-sufficiency – the traditional Chinese worldview – implies self-restraint in consumption and a solid family economy. A Chinese proverb goes: “It is not how much you earn, but for how long”. A self-sufficient country lives by domestic commodity production and a market made up of highly employed people. 

Political economy, on the other hand, serves the aim of world domination pursued by the primacy of politics over economy beneficiaries. Hence all the fictions of political economists from Karl Marx to the Nobel Prize winners in political economy. By the way, Alfred Nobel did not create this particular prize. Invented by the bankers, it is given to those who bring grist to their mill. Chinese economists don’t do this, that is why they haven’t received the Nobel Prize in political economy.

The decisions of the 20th CPC Congress may directly impact the entire political economy in the next few months, but first of all it will impact world money.

It may be impossible to legalize “shadow gold” without China’s involvement.

Back in 1970, Zbigniew Brzezinski in his book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technotronic Era mapped out the program of our planet’s digitalization. He designated the year 2018 as the one when digital technologies-based biological weapons would be used. This idea is to be found on page 28 of the English-language original. The book would make useful reading for those who blame China for the COVID-19 outbreak. 

As early as 1970, Zbigniew Brzezinski envisioned the use of vaccines containing digital nanochips to control humans after 2018. His scientific collaborator for many years was Pitirim Sorokin, who authored the theory of network control of mankind. He was also known as the personal secretary of Russian prime-minister A. Kerensky in 1917. P. Sorokin simply took the pyramid of Nimrod as the source of all digitalization and proposed to manage the entire mankind according to its model.

In 2020, the digital vaccination according to Zbigniew Brzezinski failed. As a consequence, the start of the legalization of “shadow gold” according to Basel III was postponed by one year from January 01, 2022 to January 01, 2023.

China was the first to introduce its own national digital currency. The digital yuan is backed by China’s gigantic commodity production. It does not need to be secured by gold or silver, either in theory or in practice. All the world centers of political economy, especially the World Economic Forum, praise China for the digital yuan and the system of social ratings and there are proposals to extend them globally. But in fact, China is in for a surprise.

Again, a gold ounce in the digital stablecoin form may soon be worth $20 million.

In that case, the monopolistic holder of world money would have no difficulty in paying off the U.S. national debt of $31 trillion with 1.5 million gold stablecoin. After all, 1,650,000 tons of “shadow gold” give it 53 billion gold stablecoins, which is 35,000 times more than is needed. The situation with the British national debt is exactly the same.

For a hundred years now, primacy of politics over economy proponents have taken all of the entire humanity for fools.

Without a doubt, China will realize that the trillions of U.S. dollars accumulated over forty years are now virtually worthless. The country has been allowed to become the world’s factory, but has been left with less than one percent of the world’s gold reserve.

However, by reinstating the sovereign primacy of the economy over everything, lost in the West a long time ago, China can apply the “soft power” of commodity production.

After commodity production was moved from the U.S. and Europe to China, the pendulum of world history has swung to Asia.

China now sits on the long lever of the seesaw, while the primacy of politics over economy beneficiaries sit on the short one.

Six billion people united by national economies of self-sufficiency can survive without a billion people in the countries living under the primacy of politics over economy. But the other way around will definitely not work. Politics will not survive without economics.

Now, the primacy of politics over economy adherents will either have to promptly reach an agreement with China, for example, to agree to ‘Taiwan’s return to its home harbor’, or once again postpone legalization of their “shadow gold”. For it makes no sense without China’s involvement. Money is money only when you can use it to buy goods and services.

If shadow-gold-backed stablecoins can’t buy the goods that China produces for the whole world, then the money is useless, even if this money is the Tower of Babylon, built entirely of pure gold.


The attachment to this commentary features the official video message from His Excellency Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer of the United Kingdom, now Prime Minister, about the new world Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), which His Excellency reports, are being created at the initiative of the United Kingdom.

Central banks of some 80 nations are currently creating their own digital currencies according to the British CBDC standard.

At the first stage, they are to circulate in parallel with cash. Chancellor Rishi Sunak also discusses this matter.

Only digital money is expected to remain at the second stage. According to Klaus Schwab, chips are in the making for such a moment, to be implanted in people’s bodies to connect them to digital money.

It is assumed that, at the third stage, there will be only one bank for the entire humanity-turned digital slaves. Only a solo bank will decide whether a person can get an education, whether they can work and make purchases, what they can buy, how much they can buy, and where they can make purchases. A social rating automatically computed by artificial intelligence will be able to instantly zero out a person’s central bank account, and thus making his life impossible to live. As we have discovered, the primacy of politics over economy as well as its ideology – the three-part political economy: the world economy, world money, and monetary funds are focused on working towards these goals.

We know from the Bible that this phase may last for about three years.

Some nations are motivated not to become digital slaves of “shadow gold” owners, such as virtually all of Asia, Russia and Belarus. Some European countries have deliberately refused to introduce the euro – Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Iceland, Armenia, Georgia, Serbia and Hungary. All of them, at first intuitively, but increasingly more deliberately have resisted the prospect of digital slavery seeking instead to develop self-sufficient economies. Maintaining an independent national currency plays a key role in this endeavor. India and the Arab world have accumulated an impressive gold reserve and are also in no hurry to become digital slaves.

Paradoxically enough, the economic history allows us to easily grasp that the efforts of His Majesty King Charles III’s government to implement Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) are aimed at eliminating the institution of monarchy in the United Kingdom. Meanwhile, the world experience unambiguously shows that the economy is always more stable in monarchies rather than under other forms of government.

Economists are on the watch lookout for where, when, and to what extent the “shadow gold” of the primacy of politics over economy beneficiaries will surface, and what will happen to the digital yuan in the process.
