China’s Doctrine of Neocolonialism: China just like the imperialistic powers of the 19th century has established the doctrine of Neocolonialism to control the economic and human resources of the countries China colonized. The vast continent of Africa has virtually transformed into a Chinese Colony. The process of regulating and dominating the market of the Rare Earth Elements is no different. China is able to influence the market conditions by manipulating the political establishments of the countries it has colonized. China’s Expansionism includes expansionism in all its dimensions including influencing the cultural beliefs of the people.
China occupied Tibet, an independent country by using its military force in 1950. I understand that Tibet is the major source of some of these Rare Earth Elements. In my analysis, China’s domination cannot be effectively checkmated without the emancipation of the oppressed Tibetan people. During the Cold War Era, the United States spent billions of dollars to arrest the spread of Communism viewing Communism as a threat to freedom, democracy, peace, justice, and human rights. Now, the world will be forced to recognize the economic inequity imposed by China’s Neocolonialism.
