I didn’t expect a blockbuster app for teenagers to share dance videos would become the latest tipping point for the United States to wage war on everything in China. But who made this year 2020? The parent company of tiktok is a Chinese enterprise. The popular short video platform app has been targeted by the U.S. government for alleged “national security risks.”. < p > < p > US President trump has threatened to ban the app completely, but all tiktok businesses in the United States have been given a last-minute respite due to a possible agreement between tiktok and Microsoft. Although tiktok has taken a number of measures to ease U.S. government concerns, including placing all servers in the United States to ensure that data does not flow out of the United States, the worst is happening. Obviously, when there is a political need, these initiatives are far from enough. < / P > < p > curiously, in the absence of credible evidence – no one within the US government can provide this evidence – we have to assume that all US actions against tiktok come from China. This can not help but remind people of all kinds of actions taken by the United States to suppress Huawei. With groundless rumors concerning “national security”, the U.S. government has continued to slander and suppress this Chinese technology company without providing any evidence. However, some countries still withdraw from the 5g development cooperation agreement with Huawei. Unfortunately, the U.S. government has some high-profile allies in the campaign, including Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer of New York. He quickly echoed Trump’s ban and without hesitation accepted the White House charges against tiktok. You know, this kind of obedience is too much for an opposition party. < / P > < p > this is not accidental. Through a set of media industry groups with a fully synchronized agenda, the United States has invented a claim that no Chinese entity can be trusted. Due to the monopoly power of the United States in key industries and talent fields, and the position of the US dollar as the world reserve currency, other countries have no choice but to join the United States. < / P > < p > this practice has a long history and is not limited to China or the scientific and technological community – just ask Alston, the French energy and transportation company. After the unremitting “investigation” by the US Department of justice, part of Alstom’s business was acquired by Ge in 2015. With such a record, it is not surprising that trump is confident that the acquisition of tiktok will become an “irresistible offer.”. If tiktok is not sold to a U.S. company, the app will be banned in the U.S., forcing the acquisition price down to a fraction of tiktok’s actual valuation. As a result, Microsoft or other US technology oligarchs can obtain one of the world’s top social media sites at a very low price, while competitors from China are completely excluded from the U.S. market. This is totally a protectionist act on a world scale. < / P > < p > in theory, I don’t pay much attention to tiktok, and I don’t have an account. Only when videos are shared can I see videos from this platform. But if we really want to go down this path, and the U.S. can ban applications at any time because of bogus “national security” factors, then protecting tiktok from such attacks is absolutely necessary – whether you use it or not. < / P > < p > in addition, why don’t we take a look at the behavior of us based multinational technology companies? Their close relationship with US intelligence agencies deserves to be reexamined. < / P > < p > the roles played by Google, apple, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft in the national security agency’s prism data collection project are forgotten so quickly? Or Amazon’s $600 million cloud computing deal with the CIA. There’s also Google’s earlier research funded by the CIA and the FBI. What’s strange is that tiktok has been so enraged by completely unproven accusations that American companies that are much stronger than tiktok don’t have to bear any consequences for very real, very disturbing behavior. Americans should want to know why their governments are not chasing these tech giants as hard as they did to crack down on a video app. < p > < p > for decades, the United States has been touting a utopian Internet fantasy, calling it “the wild west”, and promoting that the Internet is a new field of complete freedom of information and speech. But the lie is full of hypocrisy. The United States describes the Internet policies of other countries as cruel Orwellian regulation, but it runs a highly complex monitoring system. The United States has made use of the huge resources and influence of its multinational companies to create an economic behemoth with unprecedented influence. With this absolute power, these companies crush foreign competitors, devour the world’s data, sell them to other companies, and then ship them to spy agencies. Today, however, China has become a rising player, rejecting American technology fraud and developing its own industry. Companies like apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft, with their material advantages and decades of leadership, are unable to compete with Chinese companies in a level playing field – or are afraid to do so. < / P > < p > any US monopoly broken, even in seemingly harmless fields such as social media, will weaken the US’s global control, which is naturally unacceptable.
