Beijing has been spreading Chinese Communist Party propaganda on college campuses throughout the United States via the benign-sounding Confucius Institute for years.
More than 30 leading mobile operators from 20 countries have joined the US in excluding components produced by Chinese government affiliates in 5G networks. Collectively, the Clean Network group of countries covers 52 percent of the global economy and sets a secure baseline for 5G.
The US has supported India’s move to ban over 100 Chinese apps, asking “all freedom-loving nations and companies to join The Clean Network.” It further targetted the Chinese Communist Party accusing it of “exporting “George Orwell’s version of “1984” into the 21st century”.
A global Manhattan Project to create an ethical future is certainly a tall order, but the status quo is not an option.
