Chinese Leader Xi Jinping Drafts Plan to Control the Global Internet: Leaked Documents
Chinese leader Xi Jinping has personally instructed the communist regime to focus its efforts on controlling the global Internet, supplanting the influential role of the United States, according to internal government documents recently obtained by The Epoch Times.
In a January 2017 speech, Xi said that the “power to rule the Internet” was the “new focal point of China "national strategic competition", calling the United States a "rival force" standing in the way. of the regime's ambitions.
The ultimate goal was for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to control all content on the global Internet, so that the regime could exercise what Xi described as "discourse power" over communications and discussions on the world stage.
Xi articulated a vision of “using technology to rule the Internet” to gain total control over every part of the online ecosystem - over applications, content, quality, capital and manpower.
His comments were made at the fourth leadership meeting of the regime's chief internet regulator, the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission, in Beijing on January 4, 2017, and detailed in internal documents issued by the Liaoning Provincial Government in southeast China.
The statements confirm Beijing's efforts in recent years to promote its own authoritarian version of the Internet as a model for the world.
In another speech delivered in April 2016, detailed in an internal document from the Anshan City Government in Liaoning Province, Xi confidently stated that in the 'struggle' to control the Internet, the CCP has been transformed from 'passive defense' to playing both "offense and defense" at the same time.
Having successfully built the world's most expansive and advanced online censorship and surveillance device known as the Great Firewall , the CCP under Xi turns out to advocate a Chinese Internet whose values run counter to the open model advocated by the West. Rather than prioritizing the free flow of information, the CCP's system aims to empower the state to censor, spy on, and monitor Internet data.
Countering the US.
The Chinese leader recognized that the regime was lagging behind its rival the United States - the dominant player in this field - in key areas such as technology, investment and talent.
To realize his ambitions, Xi stressed the need to "manage Internet relations with the United States," while "preparing to wage a hard war" with the country in this area.
US companies should be used by the regime to achieve its goal, Xi said, without explaining how this would happen.
He also instructed the regime to strengthen its cooperation with Europe, developing countries and the Beijing Belt and Road Initiative member states to form a "strategic counterbalance" to the United States.
The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a large-scale infrastructure investment project launched by Beijing to connect Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East through a network of rail, sea and road links. The plan has been criticized by the United States and other Western countries as a channel for Beijing to increase its political and commercial interests in member states while saddling developing countries with heavy debt burdens.
The BRI has also urged countries to tender for “digital silk road” projects - projects related to information and communication technology infrastructure. At least 16 countries have signed memoranda of understanding with the regime to work in this area.
Xi ordered the regime to focus on three "critical" areas in its quest to rule the global Internet.
First, Beijing must be able to "set the rules" for the international system. Second, it should install CCP surrogates in key positions in global internet organizations. Third, the regime should take control of the infrastructure that underpins the Internet, such as root servers, Xi said.
Domain Name System (DNS) root servers are the key to Internet communications around the world. It directs users to websites they want to visit. There are more than 1.300 root servers in the world, about 20 of which are in China, while the United States, according to the website root-servers.org about 10 times have so many root servers .
If the Chinese regime took control of more root servers, they could redirect traffic wherever they want, Gary Miliefsky, cybersecurity expert and publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine, told The Epoch Times. For example, if a user wants to go to a news article on a topic considered sensitive by Beijing, the regime's DNS server could direct the user to a fake page that says the article is no longer online.
"Once you get the root under control, you can forge or forge anything," he said. "You can control what people see, what people don't see." Exactly as we have seen and heard on regular television and radio channels for years now.
In recent years, the regime has made progress in advancing Xi's strategy.
In 2019, the Chinese telecom giant Huawei first came up with the idea for a completely new internet, New IP (Internet Protocol), replacing the half-century-old infrastructure that underpins the web. New IP is touted to be faster, more efficient, more flexible and more secure than the current internet, and will be built by the Chinese.
While New IP can indeed provide an improved global network, Miliefsky said, "the price is freedom."
'There will be no free speech. And everyone will be bugged in real time, ”he said. "Anyone who comes in will be bugged by a single government."
The proposal was made at a meeting in September 2019 at the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), a UN agency responsible for setting standards for computing and communications issues, currently headed by Chinese citizen Zhao Houlin. New IP will be formally discussed at the ITU World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly in March 2022.
Miliefsky said the plan is unlikely to gain widespread support among countries, but could be adopted by like-minded authoritarian states such as North Korea, and later by countries that have joined BRI and are struggling to repay their loans to China.
This would accelerate a split of the Internet, what analysts like former Google CEO Eric Schmidt have called the `` splinternet, '' Miliefsky said. "The communist network and the rest of the world."
The Epoch Times has reached out to Huawei for comment.
According to the document, Xi ordered the CCP regime to establish “three ecosystems” - technology, industry, and policy - to develop key Internet technologies.
Having skilled workers was key to this plan, with Xi directing that talent from all over the world should be hired. This would be done through Chinese companies, Xi prescribed.
He told Chinese companies to "proactively" invite foreign "high-end talent", set up research centers abroad, and hire leading ethnic Chinese and foreign specialists to work for them.
Meanwhile, Xi asked the regime to establish a vocational training system in China that could systematically develop a high-skilled workforce in the long term.
He also mandated officials at every level of government to guide Chinese companies in developing their business plans that align with the regime's strategic goals, and to encourage skilled companies to take the lead in developing innovations in core technologies.
Businesses needed to be trained to have "national awareness and protect national interests," Xi said. Only then should the regime support and encourage their expansion.
As talent and critical technology are concentrated abroad, the Chinese leader also ordered authorities to support the development of a group of multinational Internet companies that could have global influence.
Making the internet red
Xi described in his 2016 speech that all online content falls into three categories: "red zone, black zone, and gray zone."
"Red zone" content refers to discourse in line with the CCP's propaganda demands, while "black zone" material violates these rules. Gray zone content is in the middle.
"We need to consolidate and expand the red zone and increase its influence in society," Xi said in one leaked speech in August 2013. “We have to enter the black zone boldly [and fight hard] to have it gradually change color. We need to take large-scale actions targeting the gray zone to speed up the conversion to the red zone and prevent it from turning into the black zone. “
In China, the CCP has a stranglehold on online content and discussion through the Great Firewall, a massive Internet censorship device that blocks foreign websites and censors content that the party considers unacceptable. It is also hiring a huge online troll army called the “50-Cent Army” to manipulate online discussions. From a recent rapport shows that the CCP is engaging 2 million paid Internet commentators and drawing on a network of 20 million part-time volunteers to troll online.
Freedom House, in its annual report 2020 internet freedom rapport , labeled China as the world's worst abuser of online freedom for the sixth straight year. Chinese citizens have been arrested for using software to control the Great Firewall bypass en punished for posting comments unfavorable to the Chinese regime online. In a now infamous incident during the early stages of the pandemic, whistleblower became a doctor Li Wenliang reprimanded by police for 'rumor-making' after he warned colleagues in a social media chat group about a SARS-like virus in Wuhan City.
In the 2017 comments, Xi told the regime to develop a larger pool of “red” online influencers to shape users' perceptions of the CCP. He also called for the 50 cents army to be expanded to operate both inside and outside China's internet.
Since the pandemic, the CCP has greatly stepped up its efforts to influence online opinion abroad. Using large networks of troll accounts On Twitter and Facebook, the regime has been able to spread and amplify propaganda and disinformation on topics such as the pandemic, racial tensions in the United States and the regime's repression against Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang.
