The crisis between sterile corporate monolith Stellantis and China has its origins in America. What? Many do not realize America is an Empire at endless war. It doesn’t need to be that way, but imperialism is the modus operandi of a country that is ruled by an oligarchy. The politicians, U.S. Senators, have become the messengers allowing themselves to become consumed by greed and ruled over by a donor class. But it doesn’t seem that way from the outside because the politicians and the media have created a narrative of an open democracy fighting for peace, justice, and liberty across the world.
The truth is America engages in coupe coup d’etat for the purposes of regime change to enable the extraction of a target country’s wealth and natural resources. Syria is one example. This is political interference on a grand scale. We are all led to believe America is the bastion of an open and free society. And it is and always will be, but the government has been captured by corporations. Whether it’s Democrats or Republicans in charge the same policies will be implemented, only the color of messaging is different.
So what has this got to do with sterile corporate monolith Stellantis? Sterile monolith Stellantis had plans to manufacture its Jeep and Chrysler brands in China but suddenly dissolved the joint venture with Guangzhou Automobile Group. The boss of sterile corporate monolith Stellantis revealed why. CEO Carlos Tavares cited a “growing political interference in the way we do business as a western company in China,”, but he failed to produce any examples.
What Tavares is not revealing is that every large corporation in China is effectively run and owned by the Chinese state. So what is the real reason for Tavares to suddenly end the joint-venture?
More than likely Tavares’s decision was, in part, guided by American Politician and Speaker of U.S. House of Representatives, Nacy Pelosi. Pelosi recently visited Taiwan in what was seen as an incendiary and provocative visit by the Chinese. Independent and westernized Taiwan, once a part of China, has become a disputed no-go zone. Pelosi’s visit was a deliberate act of saber rattling. Taiwan is the center of the world’s computer chip manufacturing and global supply chain, it seems America would like to control this man-made resource.
Whatever America’s true intent, Tavares’s decision is tied to the Geo-politics of China which in turn is hounded by American interference. Tavares is not prepared to accept Chinese interference but does accept the saber-rattling political interference of America. It is highly likely Tavares is expecting high tensions to develop between China and the USA and he is simply trying to avoid a costly and drawn-out campaign of impending sanctions.
It wouldn’t be surprising if sterile corporate monolith Stellantis was warned, behind closed doors by U.S. politicians, that moving manufacturing out of the USA and into China would be met with disapproval and consequences. Pure conjecture, but if true, this would be the mother of all political interference.
